Its Good Day by Simple Design

First up this week is a fresh, clean theme from Simple Design. Their reputation for pleasing, simple, and perfectly balanced themes is evident in their latest creation. Each element on the display has its own place without overpowering the other including the hidden text dock on the right. It features OS 7 icons, a dedicated weather slot, and a battery meter that is only visible when the power is below 30% when charging. For those of you still rocking legacy devices and prefer something elegant then you can grab this for $1.99. While icons are hidden as this is a customized theme, everything can be found with universal search. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9650, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10, and 9900/30 running OS 5 and higher.

Theme with BlackBerry 10 OS by rak theme

Are you interested in having the look, feel, and functionality of BB10 on your older legacy device? Why not pick up this replica by rak theme? With the BlackBerry 10 icons and side menu bar, it offers a genuine BB10 experience for your compatible device. Please note that as a fully skinned theme the icons in folders will be hidden on OS 7 devices. It's available for $0.99 for the BlackBerry 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70, 9500/20/30/50, 9620/50, 9700/80/88/90, and 9800 running OS 5 and higher.

Navy Wind Soul by MMMOOO

The folks over at MMMOOO sent in this extremely detailed design to share with their fans. Not only have they built a lovely theme with a navy style but included a motivational slogan on the homescreen to keep you going each and every day. As a connoisseur of stickers because of GetGlue, I am in love with the creative ones used here as application icons. Also included are custom fonts and signal meters that match the nautical motif. For those searching for a design that is timeless and chock full of quality, be sure to check out this FREE theme at the link below. It is available for most devices running OS 4.5 and higher.

Laser One by MNG Theme

As the type of person drawn to unique and interesting concepts this one by MNG Theme caught my eye when browsing BlackBerry World. This one fits that requirement with its sliding icon dock for OS 5 / OS 6 devices. (OS 7 is unfortunately a tray style theme). It offers six application icons, a hidden dock, customized battery and signal meters, fresh new icon set, and eye popping wallpapers. This theme supports BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900, 9000, 9200, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9620/30/50, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.

Chirpy Owl by Intellect Dimensions

As our final entry this week I went with something quite adorable that I couldn't take my eyes off. When it comes to offering a wide assortment of themes, Intellect Dimensions always changes their style with each and every one. This one happens to be intricately designed from top to bottom with no element left unskinned. From the redesigned top banner and meters to those attractive icons and colorful backgrounds, this theme stands out from the rest. Available for $0.99, it is compatible with most BlackBerry devices running OS 4.5 and higher.

BlackBerry theme roundup - May 7, 2013

A lot of the themes out now have too much happening. I also don't like the ones that make you loose your folders.

Gimme a nice clean theme anytime

I liked the look of the Laser One theme so gave it try on my 9930. It is 'just OK', the font is a bit small for the clock, battery, etc. You also seem to loose icon formatting / folders. I have tried a good few themes and always seem to go back to the BEAT by Walker Themes as my primary.
