When it comes to choosing a design for my BlackBerry, I prefer the fully skinned ones even if that means my icons disappear on OS 7. For a full top to bottom customized experience CJH has done an amazing job with this one. From the simplified homescreen, hotkeys, and colors, to the BB10 like icon set and custom signal meters this is a clean theme that everyone can enjoy. However, just when you thought that was it, the developer included a menu so that users could modify the display. Using this hidden panel, theme lovers can change the color of the date, day, year, and toggle the weather slot, weather slot name, and notification colors on/off. I must say you get all of these amazing features for the low price of $0.99. If you are looking for a solid, quality theme to showcase your favorite wallpapers that allows you to customize with your favorite colors be sure to check it out at the link below. 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.
If there is one thing we are all looking forward to, it's the summer break. So why not get a jumpstart on the warmer weather by picking up a theme that offers gorgeous backgrounds filled with palm trees, white sand, and crystal clear blue water. Value Apps wants to ensure you enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Featuring clear headers, OS 7 icons, and a green motif throughout, this is sure to help prepare you for the those wild summer nights on the beach. It is available for BlackBerry 8520/30, 9000, 9630/50, 9700/80/88, and 9800 running OS 5 and higher for $0.99.
What more can be said about the graphical prowess of Hamsterwheel? Besides designing some amazing wallpapers for our members, she found time to put together this stunning theme for her follow theme addicts. For those times you need a sugary overdose of cuteness on your display be sure to give this a whirl. It offers adorable fonts, colors, icons, backgrounds, and the ability to change the text color (to white, purple or pink) with the press of a hotkey for a little bit of flair. All of her themes showcase her talent and hard work as well as her attention to detail. While the icons in folders may be hidden as this is a fully skinned design, it is more than worth it for this FREE theme. You can find it at the link below for BlackBerry 9900/30/81.
DylanHabkirk reached out to us and let us know he's released an all new version of his popular theme. Version two now offers updated icons, wallpaper, and more. This theme is perfect for professionals who want a simple, yet elegant look. You can find this theme for FREE in BlackBerry World. It is available for BlackBerry 8900, 9000, 9100/05, 9220, 9300/10/20/50/60/80, 9500/20/30/50, 9630/50/70, 9700/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/81 running OS 4.6 and higher.
When it comes to building incredible themes for legacy devices there is Elecite. While it reverts to a tray style for OS 7 devices, for older devices it is fast, smooth, and visually stunning. There is no matching them for how they reinterpret the experience on your homescreen. In this case, it features a dedicated weather slot, social integration, 3-4 bottom dock categories, 6-8 customizable app slots, and 20-21 quick-access icons. What more could you ask for in a theme that lets you quickly navigate to and launch your most used applications? While some find the price of $6.99 a little steep, it lets you be more productive throughout the day and is a solid design. This theme is compatible with BlackBerry 8900, 9500/20/30/50, 9630/50, 9700/80, 9800, 9900/30 running OS 5 and higher.
