Sometimes all you want is an elegant, easy to use theme on your BlackBerry. Semplice by samgbx fits that description perfectly.

Suedeberry 2.0 by Kiraridesign
Suedeberry 2.0 by Kiraridesign
This is so cool! Kiraridesign took the BB6 icons and skinned them in suede, as well as the meters and call screen. The home screen resembles a piece of suede that has cutouts for meters/icons and stitching to represent the banner. The color scheme may not be for everyone, but I think it's unique and a welcome change from the norm.
Suedeberry is available on sale for $3.99 (regularly $5.99) and compatible with BlackBerry Bold 9000, Bold 96xx, Bold 9700, Curve 83/85xx, Curve 89xx, Curve 93xx, and Storm 95xx.

Crescent by Raypho
Crescent by Raypho
Crescent is a gorgeous new theme from Raypho that has a different look from the norm. BB6 icons on dark underlays sit against white backgrounds, making for a striking visual effect. The 5-7 icon dock is hide-able, as well as the calendar. A cool feature as well is the mini dock of 3 icons on the top of your home screen. Crescent is a very visually appealing theme, whether you leave the stock background or switch to your own; you really can't go wrong.
Crescent is available on sale for $2.49 until the end of March (regularly $4.99) and is compatible with BlackBerry Bold 9000, Bold 96xx, Bold 97xx, Curve 83/85xx, Curve 89xx, Curve 93xx, Storm 95xx, and Torch 9800 (OS 4.6 - 6.0).

BlackBerry theme roundup for March 14, 2011 - 50 copies of Crescent by Raypho to give away!



Nice Themes Roundup.. I love the look of Simplice. And Raypho Contest? Bring 'em in.. Bought several of his themes for my 9700 OS 6.0 ... And they're lookin' real good..

Looks cool I'd love a copy. But what's with the free themes for only OS6 if you can make one you can make the other. no love for us people stuck on OS5

We don't go by the first 50 comments, it's a random drawing at the end of the week. You still have a chance, don't worry! :D

Niiicceee. minimalistic & simple with striking aesthetics! Would love to have this one adore the huge screen of my storm2.

I'm definitely digging the look of Crescent, and I definitely like the idea of the 3 icon upper mini dock.

looks good, though with a white or grayish wallp... Colors, well, colors could mess it up...
But, if 1s into CLASSICAL things(like classical music)- this is excellent choice...
This with mozart playin in the background...

i would sure like another theme for my Bold, like changing things up on a regular basis!
this would make a great birthday present, too, 3/19

these look nice, count me in raypho , i would really like one pho me. my curve would love ya for it too, and then i could show it off to all my friends and family members. cause i am a theme junkie, crackberry rocks with all these great contests . thank you so much CRACKBERRY.

Looks groovy! I've never entered one of these contests before, so I don't know if the first 50 people who comment win, or if the most articulate still stand a chance almost 24 hours later. Either way, I'm looking for a theme like this one- simple, sharp, useful, and effective. And I'd love to try it for free! Thanks.

Semplice and Crescent. I have wanted Semplice since he introduced it. I still don't think it is available for the 9800. He hasen't notified me that his internet is up and working again yet. If I get chosen, I will wait for Semplice or take the Crescent. Both are killer themes
