Leave a comment to for your chance to win. 50 FREE copies to be Won!

This is pretty cool. CrackBerry member hastings has followed up his popular AppleBerry Dark Spaces / Stacks / Classic theme suite with the release of an expansion pack theme that mimics "spaces" on a Mac and adds the touch of panoramic slding wallpapers. You'll definitely want to check out the video above on this one (it's kind of hard to explain). I love the panoramic sliding action - I can't help but wish RIM would include some funkier themes like this by default (less Appley and more Berry-like though of course!). Speaking to the developer, here's what he had to say:

As far as I know this is one of the first themes to feature extra-wide panoramic wallpapers that move to create the illusion of having three homescreens, or "Spaces" in the Mac world. Every icon is user customizable and even though the panoramic wallpapers aren't user customizable, they have the ability to hide the wallpaper at any point and rock their own personal one. (as shown in the demo)

It's $6, and the suite comes with six different themes (and wallpapers), and you can change them freely without reorganizing your icons. I'm adding more wallpapers in the future and bundling them in for free. The only disclaimer I have is that this theme can be resource intensive on older OS', but has proven to be perfectly stable with the newest OS, .151. The official Verizon OS, .148 also works, but not as well.

Contest: We have 50 free copies of the AppleBerry Dark Expansion Pack to give away. Just leave a comment to this post and you're entered to win. Contest entry ends Sunday at Midnight PST.

More Info & Purchase: For more information, be sure to check out the AppleBerry Dark thread in the CrackBerry Forums and visit the AppleBerry Dark product page for more info and download instructions (requires Desktop Manager install).

thats so cool,wish you could disable all icon menu view

FRANCISKYLE

I have the regular version of this and I'm quite pleased with it but it wouldn't hurt to have the Dark upgraded version of this theme. (:

DabOfLoven

Like..... that! Looks great!

revslg

This would be a great addition to my phone.

j2xtr3me

Hi I want it!! it looks great

007

This looks really sweet! I loved Appleberry, hope to win a copy of this one!

lehman44#CB

Doesn't everyone use the one that comes with the phone????

Jeremiah818

Looks good! Wonder if it works with version 5.0???

njamison

(818): question: does your pee smell like mojitos at all?

Michael Hepples

Commenting for a chance to win a free theme.

Jgallamore

gynee

BobbyN380

This theme is awesome, the panoramic sliding feature is amazing, 5 stars.

brokensmile

Been a fan of AppleBerry since the start! Would love a free copy.

arieman3

Looks like a great theme!

tsailor1

This looks really cool!

dcmarch

who couldn't use another theme

leoleon09

Pick me Pick me!!!!!!!!!!!!

kidqwik

This would make my very sad Storm and it's owner happier!

black2001gt

That theme looks pretty good. Nice touch with the sliding wall paper.

bthoms

I've been using AppleBerry Glass and this looks better.

mskfreak

I need a theme so badly I am getting tired of the conventional blackberry storm theme. I really hope I win for once.

Randy b

this app look real good need it for bb storm the default one is ok but rim need to develop some better ones for free

SPACE-AGE-INC

wud be a nice b-day gift ;D

bblover247

THATS HOT,,
omg i want that soo bad:)

tmyatt23

Looks like a great theme. Fingers crossed I get it.

Kor770

Absolutely FANTSTIC idea!!
Kudos!!!

ElThirdrail

looks cool... can I have three separate wallpapers, or do I have to have one of the panoramic ones?

Tommy6404

I have The AppleBerryDark Suite currently on my phone as we speak! (I have the Stacks, Hidden Today+ 1 Slot)
If I had $6 in my bank account I wouldn't even bother trying for the contest, but I'm broke, so I want to win it!!!

Seps58

Best theme out there. Great job Andrew!

imblindtoyou

GIVE ME!!! GIVE ME!! GIVE ME!!!!!
This looks GREAT!!!

Tommy6404

has an absolutely PERFECT setup

Hastings does a GREAT job on his phones!!!

rwhoke

This looks SOOOO cool. Sign me up for a free copy please!!!!

Tommy6404

and I use my PC partition to get the appleberrydark suite on my phone, but besides that, I don't use my PC side for too much more... I got to say hastings makes themes that push the phone to it's limits and shows the true potential on the Storm

Harpoonin

Reminds me of the Android OS a bit with the panoramic wallpapers and whatnot.

Kazak#CB

This looks like one of the coolest themes in a long time.

Tommy6404

but nothing compares to the ones that Hastings has made! All of the AppleBerry themes are great!!!

hiltitech#CB

That looks so cool. Every time I buy an theme a new sweet one comes out.

Murrdawg158

Looks like a sweet theme

Tommy6404

I want to win this theme SO bad, I am willing to make 50 comments to get it (I think I am at like 5 right now) and I won't stop!!!

ABDEP - AppleBerryDark Expansion Pack

snaked611

I hope I win because this theme looks awesome. It doesn't even compare to others. Good luck everyone!

Tommy6404

It sounds like a codename... kinda is, but I mean its almost military grade code (if only it had numbers in it..) If there was a AppleBerry Dark 2 theme, and THAT theme had an expansion pack, then it would be ABD2EP... even more military like...

ndngq

if i win this i will worship crackberry forever!!

sdraper1284

This looks pretty cool I like that sliding feature!

Psychberry

I'm just waiting for the Mac desktop software. Perhaps this can hold me over...

Tommy6404

I WANT IT!!!!

http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c381/BigPoppa08/QL_0972631621.jpg

I got the hidden today stacks w/ 1 Slot, and I want to have the new one!!!

LET ME HAVE IT PLEASE!!!!

fjcruisader

One of these days I will win!

Tommy6404

is this a plazmic one? i mean when i put the appleberrydark originals on my phone, it said com_plazmic on it

Tommy6404

I WANT IT NOW!!!!!

PLEASE!?!?!?!?

crakky

Oh man that is hot. PLEASE let me win a copy!!

Edinger

Tommy6404

I WANT A COPY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!

Tommy6404

I am going to own this I swear

Tommy6404

then I will be pissed!!!

Hastings I love ya, but I want this one for free! I am a loyal customer looking for a little bit of slack!

I mean ABD had like a total of 16 themes in it!

I want this new one!!!

Tommy6404

I think my chances are getting a little bit better (but when I look at the total number of posts, I feel like I am failing... I want me to have a 100% chance of getting this theme!!!)

babyjsmom#CB

Great theme...would love to win.

Tommy6404

Thanks for having something like this!!!
You guys always have the best things, always making me have a slim chance of getting at least a few things in life possibly for free (I've one berryweather, but I did it just to get it, I would actually USE ABDEP every day!)

Tommy6404

Thanks for cranking out such awesome themes!

I've had some OSX-like themes (i even purchased one) and they are complete garbage compared to your artwork! Keep it up, and I hope you seek great fortunes from doing such great work like these themes! They are always recommended by me when I see a friend with a new BB Storm!

doublejinak

That is one of the coolest themes I've seen for the storm! I want a copy, please, crackberry.com. Please hook up someone who's never won from ya'll!

Hellfire

Sweet, this looks cool, me want!

Tommy6404

Good Luck and an early congrats on the ones who win! I hope to be in the same circle as you guys very soon!!!

andy957

blink_used

I love this new set up but it would be nice if there was not icons in the from screean and if you could bring them up like you move side to side
