iPlus4 by BerryMobi - A fresh new look for your BlackBerry, on sale now!

By Michael Hepples on 12 Jul 2010 09:06 am EDT

So Apple finally caught up to BlackBerry in some areas with IOS4, adding folders and "multi-tasking" to it's OS. Still, I'll take my BlackBerry any day, nothing else quite compares to the experience. There are those that love the look and feel of the Apple platform, and for them, there are themes like iPlus4. A full set of iPhone icons are included, and every component in the theme has been fully skinned to provide the overall look and feel of the iOS, with the function of a BlackBerry. Three homescreens provide access to 16 user-defined applications, a "mini" screen which shows only the bottom dock of icons, and a dedicated wallpaper view. Round it out with a hidden today, and you have agreat new theme for your BlackBerry device. Available from the CB store, on sale for $3.99 until July 18th.

iPlus4 by BerryMobi - A fresh new look for your BlackBerry, on sale now!


If you want an iPhone, get an iPhone. Putting an iPhone theme on your Blackberry is kind of like being a transvestite.

Just because I like the look of the iPhone icons and choose to purchase a theme that utilizes them does not mean I want an iPhone instead of my Berry.

And to say what you did, IMHO, is sophomoric and sad.

I change my themes often. I have had dozens come and go. Both free and Paid. I think i will be keeping this one longterm. It is not only very nice to look at, it's very functional. It runs fast with no lag on my blackberry storm.
It has 3 options for your homescreen which is a very cool feature. I like the way the messages and calendar features work on the homescreen. I also even like the way its made to look as if your phone has water droplets in it on all the screens. Yes this is an other iphone theme but its more than that, its a theme that i can see someone put a lot of thought, time, and effort into making and well worth the money. I would definitely recommend giving this one a spin.

I'd like to know if the theme developers took the time to tweak the algorithm for the signal strength to mimic the iPhone's faulty one? =)

I didn't have time to imitate that part. BUT, I do have a rubber bumper that I can sell for $30 if you truly want to mimic the experience ;)

I had this theme applied and my Storm's app memory went from 25 MB to 0.0 in 3/4 of a day. I switched back to the default stock theme and the next day I had 20 MB after 1 day. There is a leak somewhere in this guy.

Hello, I personally have been using this theme for weeks on my Storm and I have not experience any leak that you're speaking of. Even on my other phone (8900) it's holding up very nicely. I also have betatesters running this theme and no report of any leakage. I was actually surprised to see the memory stay so consistent :)

HOWEVER, I want to make sure that I get your situation taken care of so please submit a support ticket at mobihand or email me your purchase order # at info-at-berrymobi-dot-com and I will rectify the situation.

I switched from iphone 3g back to blackberry in Feb due to some things I thought it was missing. I always had an iphone theme on my bb. I just switched back to iphone4 because it covers what the 3g was lacking. I have to say that if I did still use my berry it would absolutely have this theme. Looks really good!

LOL they want that Storm 3 to be Sooooo apple/android so that they can actually browse the web Lol.

Screw Apple...lol yea right and since its gonna take forever till they do catch up I will be here on Drooooidd smiling :)

OS 6 will have the same browser as iPhone.. then what are you going to say?

To me the whole iPhone interface is looking old. It hasn't been update in 3 or more years.

Driod interface is nice but we all know those phone are piece of $^&*@#$ toys, better than iPhone, maybe, but that isn't saying much.

The biggest laugh I always get is when I step off the plane in Atlanta and there are all of the iPhone / Driod owners sitting on the floor charging their phones!!!! They look soooo pathetic! Baaa hahahahahaha!

The haven't changed it because "If it ain't broke, you don't fix it"

I enjoyed my BB, but I LOVE my iphone4. Not sure sure when it became a requirement to completely trash the phone you don't happen to own. If you don't like it, fine, don't buy it. I don't know about anyone else, but my Apple stock hasn't suffered much. The Droid appears to be a great phone also, my only pet peeve would be that they get a new one every 3 months. I kinda like knowing I'll have at minimum a year before Apple makes my phone "old news" and brings out another one. All in all, they are all great phone and you don't like one, you simply don't have to own it. Period...

I really feel like themes like these show a lack of creativity and ingenuity on the part of theme developers. Make something unique, then I will be impressed.

I really don't understand some people. If you like the theme say you do, if you don't then constructively tell the developer why and let it end there......

Really awesome theme Douglas. But you already know that :)

I am digging this theme quite a lot, and I wanted to let you know of two bugs I have found today:

1. The battery meter being a percentage is awesome. It will lag though. It was showing 70% but Options , Status was showing 60%. I put it sleep in my holster, and then it kicked the meter back to 60%. Not sure what the lag was. I also noticed when it was showing 70% on the meter, Status was showing 65%. Does the meter only show percentage in 10's?
2. Going into facebook through the blackberry app, I clicked a picture on a friends post. It pulled up the album which will show you the picture you selected and then the previews at the bottom which you can scroll though. You are not able to see any of the previews, just the tops of the boxes.

Still digging it.
