Turn your display into a dance floor with this party oriented design from Value Apps. With its multi-colored motif, custom battery and signal meters, and OS 7 icons, this theme is perfect for those seeking subtle changes to their UI. For me, I think the background is what makes it stand out. This one certainly fits the bill for $0.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 9000, 9630/50, 9700/80/88, and 9800 running OS 5 and higher (This theme does not support OS 7 devices).
Known for their fully customized themes, MMMOOO takes a more simple approach with their latest creation. Based on the BlackBerry 10 style, it offers a clean and bold look with many of the familiar elements of the OS including icons, buttons, and fonts. Not only is it refreshing to gaze upon each and every day but navigation is smooth and I like how balanced it is overall with no element out of place. Although, the custom wallpapers aren't bad on the eyes either. Available for $1.99, it is compatible with most legacy devices running OS 4.5 and higher.
Our good friend BB Freaks is back in action with another delightful theme for fans and followers. If you fancy having an old fashioned style on your device then this detailed and beautiful design is for you. Never one to shy away from top to bottom customization, it features all sorts of custom elements including the lockscreen, battery and signal meters, their signature icon set which matches the overall scheme, classic sepia tones and colors, and skinned media player, compass and folder background (for select devices). Did I also mention you can use with your own wallpapers? I happen to love the frame effect included in all of their more recent designs and how the side graphics remain even if you switch backgrounds. This theme supports BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9650, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.

When it comes to theme development, CJH delivers simplicity at its finest. While the overall layout of this one rarely waivers from others in their catalog, it offers something different in terms of functionality and is simply an elegant design from the moment of activation. Users have the ability to change the banner color and toggle the weather slot on and off. Between that and the extra screen real estate, you won't have an issue showcasing your favorite wallpapers. While icons in folders may be hidden on OS 7, it certainly doesn't detract from the overall quality or the ease with which you can navigate the theme. Available for $0.99, it supports BlackBerry 9100/05, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9650/70, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 6 and higher.
To close out this week's roundup, I went with something out of the ordinary. Regardless of my thinking, this interesting style caught my eye. It comes with doodle creature wallpapers, a custom icon set, a hidden today, and will certainly raise eyebrows when showing it to friends or family. All in all I think it's a pretty cute design that can be purchased for $0.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.6.1 and higher.
