Theme building never ceases to amaze me, which is why this one sent in by Motek Mobile is another completely original design that appeals to the masses. It is filled with all sorts of options and features that theme addicts will enjoy especially since it lets you generate your own Keep Calm phrase! From linking to your owner information and selecting from over 30 different images for your own custom icon to populate areas on the homescreen to a hidden notifications drop down to preview missed calls, BBM’s and unread messages this is certainly one lovely and functional theme. Additional features include OS 10 icons, animated hidden dock with weather slot, and the ability to use your own icon in the information field. This theme is available for $0.99 or as a free trial at the link below. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8530, 8900, 8910/80, 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70, 9620/30/50, 9700/80/88/90, 9810/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.
This week I’m in a sci-fi mood and not just because Star Trek happened to hit theaters this past week. There is nothing like skinning your screen with a cutting edge, futuristic look. Not only do you get those amazing icons and eye catching homescreen design, but custom battery and sign meters, backgrounds, and call screens. Please note that the design may be slightly different on OS 7 devices as it reverts to a tray theme. For a soothing and out of this world experience be sure to hit the link below and download for $1.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9650, 9700/80/88/90, 9810/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.6 and higher.
When it comes to discovering great themes by new or experienced developers there is no better place than in our forums. This FREE theme by UMAY is one for all the theme loving girls out there and is filled with eye popping pastel colors, custom icons and notifications, redesigned top banner, pink flowery wallpapers and new battery and signal meters. While some may find the fonts to be small for their eyes, I still find this to be a colorful and cute design to liven up your display. It is available for the BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9650, 9700/80/90, 9800/10, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.
Looking for a sleek and smooth theme? BB Freaks is at it again with another unique design. What caught my eye is the silvery tones laid out on the redesigned homescreen and lockscreen. Featuring their signature icon set, I like how they have skinned the media player, folder, and compass backgrounds. It also offers creative wallpapers and a background that remains as a framing effect around your own personal images. Available for most devices running OS 6 and higher, you can find this in BlackBerry World for $0.99.
For the final entry this week, I went with something that offered a bright burst of color for your display by A1 Design Studio. This elegant theme reflects all the colors of the rainbow in the beautiful backgrounds, fonts, custom icon set, battery and signal meters, menus and dialog boxes, and in the pyramid style homescreen. It may be simple but it certainly does not detract from the functionality of your compatible device. It is available for $0.99 and supports BlackBerry 8520/30, 9300/10/20/50/60/70/80, 9630/50, 9700/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.6 and higher.
