If you're on the lookout for a unique and quirky theme or are a fan of the Windows 7 phone style platform then look no further than FunOrama by novemberagain. I've been rocking this theme on my Torch 9800 and I must say it's definitely one to check out. FunOrama is a panoramic theme made of up three sliding panes and designated spaces or boxes for your apps which gives it an engrossing sliding effect as you scroll across each one. There are three theme settings to choose from to completely change the look and colors of the icon boxes: default (block colors), transparent (clear), and custom theme (use the panoramic wallpaper to fill in the spaces).
Cool thing is you can design your own panoramic wallpaper, name it bigwall.png and save it on your external SD Card in BlackBerry/pictures. For those of you Photoshop gurus out there, create your own panoramic background with individual cutouts so that each image is represented in a different box. This makes for a really amazing look as shown above. Otherwise, using your own wallpapers distributes the image across the boxes.
- Wallpaper Custom *) icons tab in the boxes
- Windows Phone style

- 8500/8500 - use 640x240 sized images stored in the sdcard/BlackBerry/pictures named with bigwall *png
FunOrama is a slick theme that will certainly turn heads or make people wonder how you did that. Just be sure to do a battery pull after installation. It's available for BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900, 9300/30, 9630/50, 97XX, and 9800. You can grab this theme for $5.99 from BlackBerry App World or the CrackBerry store.
