Starting things off this week is a lovely blue design to help calm you down. It features floral backgrounds, black and white OS 7 icons, and dark colors woven throughout. Nothing beats a simple theme that makes only minor UI changes to showcase your display. This theme supports the BlackBerry 8350i, 8520/30, 9300/30, 9650, 9700/80, 9800, and 990/30/81 running OS 5 and higher. You can grab it at the link for $2.99.
I'm always on the lookout for themes that go against the norm and beyond the minor changes to stock. This one certainly fits that description with the professional icon set and that intricately designed dial on the homescreen that replaces the battery and signal meters. With its bold color scheme and redesigned top banner this wallpaper friendly design is versatile and a great addition to your rotation for $0.99. It is compatible with the BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.6.1 and higher.
If there is one thing I'm a sucker for, it's a cute theme. Not just any kind of theme mind you, but one that skins elements from top to bottom. Everything about this one evokes the memories of my childhood and watching the cartoons of those famous chipmunks. Regardless of nostalgia, it is filled with all sorts of personalizations theme lovers will enjoy including custom fonts, dialog boxes, and buttons, and cute message notification icons. It also includes a variety of colors and backgrounds to liven your screen. This free theme is available for BlackBerry 8350i, 8520/30, 8900/10/80, 9000, 9100/05, 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9500/20/30/50, 9620/30/50/70, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.7 and higher.
Looking for something a little out of the ordinary? You get not one, but five different colored designs in this screen muncher pack and a ringtone. Each of these entertaining themes are sure to give your BlackBerry a completely new look all while making you think your screen is being eaten by a colorful monster. It features new application and message icons, custom battery and signal meters, and eye popping colors. For those with OS 5/6 devices it will even take a bite when when you slide up to the profiles icon. You can't beat getting five themes for $1.99. They are compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900/10/80, 9100/05, 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9500/20/30/50, 9620/30/50/70, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.
Our final theme this week happens to be a developers' very first design. When I saw the email in the theme roundup mailbag I just had to share it. I must say for his first effort it is a striking theme that grabs your attention. While this is a tray style theme for only Torch 9850/60 devices, it does offer an animated live banner that does not drain your battery. What I like most about this theme is the electric blue highlights that are prominently displayed on every screen. It goes well when set against the dark tones. Please note that this theme does not include a wallpapper but it does a great job of showcasing your own personal ones. Available for only $0.99, I feel he did a great job on this one.
