Next week we will be showcasing themes for the upcoming holiday, so if you have any you want to see included, be sure to send them in to themeroundup[at]crackberry.com. Until then, have a great week!
Doodle Space theme by MMMOOO
Popular theme developer MMMOOO has come out with a fun and lighthearted theme for your BlackBerry called Doodle Space. Completely hand drawn graphics mean you won't find icons, meters or backgrounds like these anywhere. Doodle Space is really cute, and the cartoon alien, spaceships, planets and rockets will bring a smile to your face every time you use it. You can pick up Doodle Space in the CrackBerry store right now for $4.99. It's compatible with all BlackBerry devices that currently support themes (so no, your 9650/97xx etc on BB6 can't run it.)
Ion is a highly flexible and customizable theme, when you want it to be. It's a theme that allows robust access to the most used apps you've got with the convenience of bookmarks so you spend far less time sifting through menus and pages to get to your apps. Stop searching and start doing.
With Ion, you'll find your native apps organized at the top in a very neat shelf-like system. Touching a folder at the top right will expand that category so you can quickly view the apps within. Do you use certain apps far more than others? To the left of each entry you will find a lock option. Clicking this lock icon will place the app in the bookmarks toolbar right above the customizable icons for fast access. No clutter, no mess. Ion is available in the CrackBerry store for $6.99 and supports the BlackBerry Storm 1 & 2 as well as the Torch 9800.
Here is a fresh new theme with some unique elements I thought were cool. Tapas Berry by Lyon has the normal BB6 icons, a weather slot, and hidden dock and today. However, the weather slot can also slide shut, leaving just the signal meter showing, which is designed to look like a thermometer! The battery display is digital, which I always liked. Tapas Berry is available on sale for $3.99 in the CrackBerry store, and supports the BlackBerry Bold 9000, Storm 95xx, and 97xx/96xx/89xx on OS 5, as well as the Torch 9800.
If you're looking for a dark theme to dress your BlackBerry in, then Providence by Raypho may be exactly what you need. The black and silver color scheme of this theme are very sleek, and the icons are minimalistic and don't overwhelm the simplicity of the style. Each of the 3 docks of icons are unique, and can be hidden independently of the others, offering you everything you need at your fingertips. Providence is available for the BlackBerry 8350, 85xx, 89xx/96xx/97xx, 9000, and 93xx/95xx (OS 4.6-5.0) and is on sale until November 30 for just $2.99 (regularly $5.99).
BlueBizz is a fast theme that features an elegant design. Offering you a wallpaper friendly homescreen with 15 customizable icons divided in 3 groups of five, a today area, 3d reflected icons and more, just as you would expect from a BB-Freaks theme. All of this, and the theme comes in at less than 1 MB. BlueBizz is available for the BlackBerry 89xx/96xx/97xx, 9000, and 93xx/95xx (OS 4.6-5.0) and is on sale until November 30 for just $1.99 (regularly $4.99).
