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).

This would be a fantastic app for me. It would go great with my MacBook Pro. Thanks in advance for the opportunity.

I own the original Appleberry Suite and will lose it when I upgrade sometime soon. So winning this contest will come at a great time! I would love to have the Appleberry Dark to use on my new Storm and then I'll buy the other one again. Perfect! Thanks for allowing me to enter this contest.

Clean and functional, perfect for my 9500.

I have used appleberry and love it. Hastings has shown great progress as a theme dev and I wanna say thanks.

It's amazing that Hastings keeps coming up with fresh new ideas for his themes. Congrats on what is sure to be another winner and thanks Crackberry!

I don't remember if I commented when this was posted...so I had better do it anyway. Sorry if it's a double post.

Love the original appleberry sets. Hope to snag this one for free. If not, I am definitely on board for paying up for it.

this is the theme of my dreams. the best of two worlds into a new genre of themes. I love blackberry and I would love to have this theme. This is something I would really love to have.
