Our own forums member Hamsterwheel brings us yet another dazzling design that is colorful, functional, and absolutely unique. This month she has been cranking some amazing themes for all of her fans and fellow addicts. She sent this one in and, being a real eye-catcher, grabs you from the moment you activate. As another quality design it features a glass like banner with 6 color options to show off your favorite backgrounds, a colorful icon set with an inventive plastic look, a weather slot, and two docks so you can access your most used applications from the homescreen. If there is one thing I love about her themes it’s their clarity and fresh style. Perfect for all types of theme lovers simply click on the link below to purchase for your Bold 99xx device for $1.99.
If you are searching for a wonderful theme not only are our forums an excellent resource but our members are there to lend a helping hand.Going through the what does your BlackBerry screen look like, a few members proudly showed off this gem by MNG Theme. Divided into three screens, it offers a completely new interface and layout. I’m always a fan of a clean screen for navigation and wallpaper purposes and this one may be simple but it gets the job done in that respect. It offers a small banner, ability to display owner name and information on the display, smooth transitions, and easy navigation thanks to the widget hidden dock (4 fixed buttons and 8 fixed icons). Be sure to check it out in BlackBerry World for $1.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8900, 9000, 9630/50, 9700/80/88/90, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5.0 and higher.
Another one of our more notable developers, BB Freaks, shines once again with a design geared towards the ladies. Packed with a slew of features for your enjoyment you get the quality of a premium theme for FREE. I have always loved his attention to detail and not only are the battery and signal meters customized numerically (0 to 100), but it also skins the folder background and media player and includes a custom matching icon set. As with all their themes, it is available for most OS 6.0 and 7.0/7.1 devices.
As the winter season comes to a close I thought it fitting to get a jump start on spring with this lovely creation by Pixel Dreems. It will certainly help rid yourself of the winter blues with the calming floral motif woven throughout all of the menus, dialog boxes, and backgrounds. It features custom focus icons, an amazing icon set, a hidden today, customized battery and signal meters, and a redesigned home screen. This theme is available for $3.99 for BlackBerry 8350i, 8520/30, 8900/10/80, 9000, 9220, 9300/10/50/60/70, 9650, 9700/80/980, 9800/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.6 and higher.
As a theme lover, I admit to being drawn to those that go against the norm. Now while a certain holiday may have passed this is still a design that lasts all year long. There is something about the hand drawn feel in this theme by BB Theme Studio that makes it stand apart from the rest especially how they don't leave one area untouched. Skinned from top to bottom it features customized backgrounds, icons, and meters, small top banner, and matching colors. Every now and then you have to shake things up a bit and this one will help you do that. It is available for most devices running OS 4.5 and higher for $0.99.
