There is nothing like a clean and simple theme to get us started this week and from a developer who is no stranger to the roundup. CJH is subtle in their approach to theming and it’s amazing how much they accomplish on your device’s display with only slight modifications. That being said Pure is their latest to hit the store and it is a beauty. It offers a homescreen that is wide open to pair with your favorite wallpapers, a menu to modify the display color and to show/hide the dedicated weather slot, and a custom icon set. Please note that as a fully customized design your icons will be hidden in folders and your background may initially appear white until you select one. You can find it at the link below for only $0.99. This theme supports BlackBerry 8900/80, 9000, 9100/05, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9630/50/70, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.
To keep with my ongoing summer motif, Eternal Creations brings us a refreshing and vibrant design to get the party started. With its colorful icon set and matching backgrounds, redesigned homescreen, and custom focus icons, fonts, and battery and signal meters, it certainly livens up your display. So why not sit back, reach for that cold lemonade, and enjoy the summer season with a theme that only augments the beauty of your Blackberry. Available for $1.99 it is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/10/20/50/60/70/80, 9630/50, 9700/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.6.1 and higher.
Perusing through our theme forums, I came across this adorable and eye catching design by MoNoKuRiN ThemeS. Filled with all sorts of cute and colorful graphics, this fully skinned theme comes with pastel colors in all of the menus, popups, and dialog boxes, a detailed icon set that gives off a hand-drawn feel, and custom notifications, meters, fonts, and a custom top banner. Did I also mention that you can download this for FREE? Be sure to check it out in BlackBerry World. It supports BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900/10, 9000, 9100/05, 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9620/30/50/70, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.
This next one, courtesy of Value Apps, is for those who prefer minor changes to their display. and something more in line with the stock theme. Each of the backgrounds are comprised of multicolored bubbles that give off a crystal effect and blend in nicely with the dark theme. It also features custom focus icons and matching pink and purple colors throughout. As it doesn’t veer too much from the default UI it is sure to give your device a professional and elegant look. It is available for $0.99 for BlackBerry 8520/30, 9630.50, 9700/80/88, and 9800 running OS 4.6.1 through OS 6.
Our last selection this week is another solid theme from Lyon Design. What caught my eye with this one is the inventive interface that not only tidies up your homescreen but gives you quick access to all of your most used applications. Whether in the form of a hidden dock with fixed icons or a quick launch UI for Torch devices (with added features such as a hidden today and ability to view missed calls and unread messages), it easily lets you navigate to your programs so you can focus on getting things done. It is an extremely detailed design that offers a lovely custom icon set, easy to read battery and signal meters, large time display, and a homescreen with enough real estate to show off all of your favorite wallpapers. For those who love total customization and don’t mind that the icons in folders will be hidden, you can buy it for $0.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 9810/50/60, and 9900/30/81
