First drkapprenticeDESIGNS wowed us with Mini_Banner. Then they released Mini Banner_Live with the help of @_Lucky45 which exploded in popularity in the forums. This time, they've outdone themselves with De_Nex7. You will be blown away by the level of customization and attention to detail for select OS6/OS7 devices considering the lack of TB7. While we patiently wait for its release, I must say that drkapprenticeDESIGNS shows that you don't always have to wait to get what you want. Be sure to click on the jump for more!
De_Nex7 has it all: a huge flip clock, weather/OCD slot (by placing an icon in slot #13), Android 4.0 icons, a Google icon for Universal Search, and the glowing red banner for incoming messages. Visually, this theme is brilliant and offers bright colors and a sharp display. It's smooth with no lag whatsoever and no noticeable battery or memory drain issues. As a matter of fact, my battery lasts slightly longer throughout the day when activated.
Also, by positioning your cursor on the clock banner, the large droid clock's font color and style can be changed by pressing ALT-W for White font/Black flip or ALT-B for Black font/White flip (this feature is not available on Torch 9850/60 devices) or hidden by pressing the ESCAPE key. Bold 99xx owners will discover that they may also switch to a 24-clock in setup and adjust the number position in the flip cards by pressing ALT-E for 24-hour and ALT-S for 12-hour.
De_Nex7 offers customization that I didn't think was possible on an OS7 device and, because of this, has earned a permanent spot on my rotation. This is a fantastic theme and a must have for anyone with a compatible device. drkapprenticeDESIGNS accomplished this remarkable feat using only the workaround on TB6 and it's worth it.
De_Nex7 is currently available for the following devices running OS6 and higher (including OS7/7.1): 9650, 9700/80, 9810/9850/60, and 99xx. Don't panic, the Torch 9800 and Bold 9790 are coming soon. De_Nex7 can be yours for just $2.99 at the links below.
