What do you get when you combine the elegance of Mobster Mobile Design and the technical prowess of the drkapprenticeDESIGNS team? The answer is the Palladium series of themes where form meets function. Available in an array of stunning and vibrant colors, this collaboration is a must for any theme fanatic.
Palladium is an OS7 custom layout theme for your compatible device that was designed by Mobster Mobile Design and coded by the drkapprenticeDESIGNS team. What this means is that while your home screen is a vivid, metallic work of art, the folders are invisible. You'll need to utilize Universal Search to locate your programs or move them out of the folders and onto your desktop before switching themes. This is a common issue with using the workaround but it's not inconvenient.
Palladium - large clock and bouncing dock displayed
- Have your most used icons available or hidden
- ALT-I: to hide the dock
- ALT+O: to show the dock
- Have a choice of beautiful large clock with unique battery and signal meters, medium sized off center clock or small clock (ALT+W, Medium clock, ALT+E Large clock, ALT+R Small clock)
Palladium offers an amazing metallic icon set and a bouncing reflective icon dock. That was not a misprint, you did read that correctly. When an application in the dock is selected, it will bounce. Custom fonts, matching color highlights, and new message notifications round out the rest of this beautiful and sleek design. For those who are familar with drkapprenticeDESIGNS then you know their signature style of having the banner at the top light up with a new incoming message. In this case, the signature red glow is replaced by the color of the theme chosen. What I like is that on the large clock the bar will indicate the name of the selected application and the bottom left and right hand corners indicate the signal strength and battery meter in an easy to read manner.
At this time you can grab Palladium in BlackBerry App World for $3.99. It's available in four eye catching colors: Amethyst, Rose, Ruby, and my favorite Turquoise. Whether you choose one color or them all you won't be disappointed. It runs smooth, looks great, and garners a lot of attention when seen by other people. This theme is compatible with the BlackBerry 9900/30/81 running OS7/7.1, and the 9650, 9700, and 9780 running OS6 will be coming soon.
What are you waiting for? There are so many possibilities and combinations when running this theme especially when paired with your favorite wallappers. Let us know which color is your favorite in the comments below.
