Kicking things off this week is a simple and colorful design sent into the roundup. With its custom colors, calling screens, redesigned top banner, and bright wallpapers, it does its job of livening of your compatible display. New to theme developing, the latest item in their catalog also offers landscape support for Torch devices and fully customized 3D icons. If you are looking to change things off of stock then give this a whirl for $1.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900, 9300/50/60/80, 9500/20/30/50, 9630, 9700/90, 9800/50/60, and 9900/81 running OS 5 and higher.
We are all well aware of the graphical prowess of popular theme developer BB Freaks and this blast from the past is no different. This fabulous fully skinned design harkens back to another era. No matter what generation you are from you can appreciate the retro design incorporated into every screen with precise detail. Various items on the home screen are animated so that the camera flashes, sunglasses move, the umbrella opens and closes, the music box beats, and the record circles. All of these small touches combined with their custom icon set, colors, wallpapers, and modified top banner make for one awesome theme to add to your rotation. There are two different version of this design: a free version where the wallpaper cannot be changed and it has OS 7 icons, and the premium version for $0.99 with the custom icon set and no restrictions. These themes are fully compatible with all OS 6 and 7 devices as well as the Curve 8520/30 on OS 5.
This is a clean and elegant design for all the romantics out there. What makes this stand out from other themes are the text application icons and the quick access sidebar. Not only does this grant access to your most used applications but gives your homescreen a unique layout. As a result, users can view their personal wallpapers without obstruction. This unique design changes the overall look and feel of your display. You can find it in BlackBerry World for FREE for BlackBerry 9000, 9650, and 9700/80 for OS 5 and higher.
The fall equinox is upon us and what better way to celebrate the leaves turning color than with a fresh new theme. To help get you into the swing of things it comes with bright wallpapers that encompass the different yellow and orange hues of the season, battery and signal meters that are represented by different colored leaves, custom fonts and notifications, and a colorful icon set. For only $0.99 you can liven up your display. It supports BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/20/30/50/60/80, 9700/20/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.6.1 and higher.
Our final selection this week caught my eye because I can't get enough of fully skinned designs that transform every element on the display. No stone has been left unturned and this is evident from the battery and signal meters at the top all the way down to the detail on the custom icon set. I find it to be extremely adorable and nothing wrong with activating one like this every now and then for fun. It certainly will put a smile on your face. You can grab it for $0.99 and it is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900/10/80, 9220, 9300/10/20/30, 9630/50, 9700/80, 9800/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.
