Auto RPM Colorful by MNG Theme
Racing season is here and what better way get ready then by decking out your device with a sleek and stylish theme. This colorful offering in MNG's Auto series comes with a brand new custom icon set. It still retains the redesigned homescreen, custom fonts, and those big odometers that represent the battery and signal meters. This theme gives a professional appearance to your screen and is suitable for all theme lovers. Auto RPM is available for BlackBerry 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9620/50, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 6 and higher for $1.99.
Lovely Girl by MoNoKuRiN ThemeS
Our forums are an excellent resource for discovering new theme developers and creative designs. Take for instance this bright and colorful theme by MoNoKuRiN ThemeS. Sometimes you just have to go for the adorable factor. This theme is extremely detailed from the battery and signal meters at the top to the new notification area and time/date at the bottom. Filled with pastel colors and a cute custom icon set, this is one theme I certainly couldn't take my eyes off. You can find this in BlackBerry World for $0.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900/10, 9000, 9100/05, 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9500/20/30/50, 9630/50/70, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.
10! by BB Freaks
Searching for a clean and beautiful theme that gives a premium feel for FREE? Look no further than 10! by BB Freaks. You know coming from BB-Freaks it will look amazing on your device. Factor in the eye popping wallpaper, their signature silver icons and rainbow focus icons, and mini top banner, this is one smooth theme that should not be passed up. Being able to hand code an OS 7 theme is not an easy task so when I see BB Freaks skinning the media player, compass, camera, and the folder backgrounds, you know it's a solid and quality design. 10! Is compatible with all OS 6-7 devices so be sure to check it out at the link below.
BOB_CLOCK by drkapprenticeDESIGNS
drkapprenticeDESIGNS never ceases to amaze me and their latest is a real eye turner. Upon first glance, one assumes the homescreen is an oversized clock. That couldn't be further from the truth. In actuality, this stylized clock with layered presentation comes with a working seconds display that does not drain battery or resources whatsoever (and keeps real time!). BOB_CLOCK comes in three different colors (purple, blue, and red) and features user customized fonts throughout, themed message indicators, and a themed media player. For those wondering, the message indicators give your inbox and BlackBerry Messenger a BB10 look and feel. I felt like a kid in a candy store when I saw the "D" and "R," skinned in BBM. It's the little things like this that make a theme worthwhile. As this runs off of the default theme there is no icon issue as with other customized designs. You can find BOB_CLOCK at the link below for $1.99 for 99xx devices.
Chrome / Chrome7 by Keep Calm and Berry On
Once again the forums present us with a unique gem in terms of theme building. If you're not familiar with forums member Hamsterwheel then these themes certainly show off her talent with creating original and graphically pleasing designs. Chrome / Chrome7 are her first foray into custom themes (though certainly not her first hand coded theme) and are just brilliant. As I have said before, icons for me are a dealbreaker and the chromes ones included in this set are gorgeous. Both of them are simple, clean, and functional themes to make your Bold's display stand out with its infusion of color. Chrome is a customized design and while the icons do not show in folders, it also offers a hidden dock controllable with keyboard shortcuts. Chrome7 utilizes the default style with a small banner so as to avoid that pesky icon issue and still comes with those great chrome icons and red highlights.
