!Prestige by AG Designs & Graphics
I love themes from AG Designs. They always look so sharp and run smoothly. Their newest offering is called !Prestige, the professional's theme. I agree with that description. The high quality icons and crisp fonts make for a theme you can proudly use during those important meetings and even transition with your own wallpaper for casual Friday and the weekend.
With this theme you will get our (now standard) Smart Banner – wherein all icons are selectable. The signal meter takes you to Manage Connections, time to the Clock/Alarm app, etc. We also incorporated a Profiles icon and weather slot (even on the lock screen!) into the Smart Banner. The star of Prestige is our sliding dock. On non-touch devices,10 icons and 2 docks slide to the right and left by scrolling to the right or left – that easy. On touchscreen devices, 12 icons and 3 docks are controlled by pressing on the left or right side of the middle of the screen. All icons, banners, backgrounds and graphics were professionally designed in house. They have all been optimized for BlackBerry smartphones for performance and memory reduction. Our themes are tested on actual devices and not simulators, ensuring that all bugs are squashed before you find them.!Prestige is available on sale now for $2.99 (regularly $4.99) and is compatible with 83xx, 85xx, 89xx, 9000, 93xx, 95xx, 96xx, 97xx, and 980.
