Contest: Win a free copy of Rubus by Pootermobile!

Rubus by Pootermobile
By Michelle Haag on 19 Feb 2011 01:57 pm EST

Pootermobile is back again with a slick new BlackBerry theme called Rubus. As always Poots had his thinking cap on when he designed this theme, and he added some innovative features that aren't found elsewhere. For example, he kept Universal Search on the home screen, which many other theme developers have removed. What really sets Rubus apart from the others is the addition of widgets, which allow you to add or remove the calendar, weather slot, and icons on the home screen. The ability to customize a theme to your liking right on your device is really cool!
Other features include:

  • Customizable icons on home screen - (5 for keyboard devices, 8 for touchscreen devices, 4 for the BlackBerry Style)
  • Weather widget 1st position in the applications screen - (weather application of your choice required but not included)
  • Widgets Options Page - click the options icon on the bottom left banner
  • Universal search on home screen - (only for devices running BlackBerry 6)
  • Wallpaper friendly
  • No carrier
  • Transitions throughout
  • Trackpad on the home screen for the Torch has been disabled because of a conflict in the Widgets page.

Compatible devices include BlackBerry: 8900 (Curve), 8910 (Curve), 8930 (Curve), 8980 (Curve), 9000 (Bold), 9500 (Storm), 9530/9530T (Storm), 9550/9520 (Storm2), 9630 (Tour), 9650 (Bold), 9670 (Style), 9700 (Bold), 9780 (Bold), 9800 (Torch)

Contest: Win a free copy of Rubus by Pootermobile!



I need a new theme since the other ones I won were only for OS5 and now wont work. Can I give those to anyone somehow?

This is definitely a MUST-HAVE app for all BlackBerry user. I am using 9700 and this will certainly add to my MUST-HAVE app list!

I totally love the part where we can customize the phone and I believe this is what make Berries better than the rest out there!

Good job Pootermobile and CB for sharing!

Yea i would love this. Pootermobile's themes rock.

I have a storm 2 9550 and yes i love my blackberry.

Theme is sooo sexy ... I wish I could have it but the chances are so litttle because of the huge amount of comments So I mightt not get it :(

I'll try my luck and throw my hat in for this one. Always been a fan of Pootermobile's themes.

Loved this theme when pooter first released, wanted it but never had 3.99 in my bank account to get it yet :(

yea, widgets are the way to go... I hope rim finds a way soon to implement some of them widgs on BB's homescreen... Thats awesomeness, though not too original, but still useful and hoping for some eye-candishness certanly wont harm... Thanks to pooterists foe making a tad more interesting themes than some others...

Love wallpaper friendly themes so i can use my CB pro wallpaper app ( you guys ought to give this app away on a contest in the near future )

This looks like I would enjoy it very much! The theme was a great idea to make your phone stand out. It's a great look! I would really like to have this!

How awesome! I recently switched from Curve 8530 to the Style 9670 and I've found it to be very hard to find a theme for this phone. Please let me win! I would love to have a theme like that, it looks perfect for me-

Looking AMAZING !!
Hopefully this theme will be my first OS6 theme ^^ :P
Pick me !! =P

Thanks Crackberry !!
