Rtu by Simple Design
As a BlackBerry addict and theme lover there is nothing I love more than a theme that frees up real estate on my display. Rtu by Simple Design is an absolutely gorgeous design that is also clean and functional. What I have always loved about their themes is that you are never disappointed in terms of quality or flexibility. Not only is this fully skinned creation perfect for all of your favorite wallpapers but there are plenty of options for you as well using hidden shortcuts. With a tap of a key, users can show/hide the weather slot, display the mini icon (bottom left, slots 1-4), change the font color on the homescreen, and open the text icon dock on the right hand side. This is certainly not one to pass up and you can find it in BlackBerry App World for $.99. Rtu is compatible with BlackBerry 8300/30/50i, 8520, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60/70, 9650, 9700/80/90, 9810, and 9900/30 running OS 5 and higher.
Fresh off the heels of their popular Desktop7, drkapprenticeDESIGNS wasted no time in coding another quality design called Heavy Fluid. Their latest creation is a collaboration with fellow forums member Heavy Fluid based on his original concept for older devices. In the hands of drkapprenticeDESIGNS, it now offers OS 7 users a large weather slot (slot 1), smaller convenience icons (slots 2-6), and profiles that are prominently displayed on your homsecreen. Hotkeys allow you to customize the line color between 9 different ones or to remove it entirely to fit your background, change the font color (dark/light), and show/hide the icon text. Plus there are a few extra surprises and modifications in the latest update that you have to see for yourself. As of now, Heavy Fluid is compatible with the Bold 99xx and the Torch 9850/60. So be sure to head on over to the forums using the links below to pick up your copy for $1.99.
Innovation and elegance take center stage with Vivacious Violet Theme by Intellect Dimensions. I've always loved their intricate designs and color choices and this one is certainly no different. Lively and high spirited, this fully customized theme offers high quality backgrounds, a zen today (messages and calendar), attractive icons and homescreen layout, and all new meters and fonts. This graphically pleasing theme with fresh and beautiful violet colors is FREE to download in BlackBerry App World. Violet Vivacious is compatible with most devices running OS 4.5 and higher.
For those who frequent the forums then this next one should be familiar. Green Dock Pro by Themerzz has become quite popular and for good reason. This simple dock theme with hidden weather slot is not only elegant and professional but adds a touch of color as well in both the dock and throughout the menus and dialog boxes. This theme will soon be available in pink and red, with the purple version available at the link below for $1.99. These lovely and stylish themes offer a redesigned homescreen to showcase your favorite wallpapers, custom fonts, and a big clock and date that stand out in the center. Dock lovers can download the green variant from BlackBerry App World for $1.99. Green Dock is available for BlackBerry 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60/70, 9650, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10, and 9900/30/81 and Purple Dock supports 9210/20, 9310/50/60/70, 9650, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10 and 9900/30/81.
