If you're an OS6 owner who's been anxious to get your hands on the sleek, simple and amazing Seven Point Five theme by BBThemes then rejoice, the wait is finally over! I've been rocking this theme on my BlackBerry Bold 9900 for awhile now and I have to say it is fantastic. OS6 owners will be delighted to know that just like its OS7 counterpart, it simplifies your home screen by placing everything in the top banner so that your favorite wallpapers take center stage. Not only that but it gives your device the look and feel of the BlackBerry PlayBook with the indicators, folders and icons of OS 2.0.
BBThemes has done an oustanding job with this one. One thing I am truly impressed with is how the icons and fonts are not small or cutoff in certain menus on my Bold. In addition, and I don't know how they were able to do this, but when you click on the home screen options icon on an OS6 device, the layout mimics the style of OS7 right down to the tiniest detail! Hands down this is an awesome theme that works flawlessly and smoothly.
New for v2.1
- New folder UI to mirror OS2
- New tab UI in browser to mirror OS2
- other minor enhancements and icon changes
- All the benfits of the OS7 version, now for OS6 devices
- All the menus themed to look like OS7 Media panels themed to look like OS7
- The ONLY theme to have menus mirror OS7
Seven Point Five is available for BlackBerry 9100/05, 9300/30/50/60/70, 9650/70, 9700/80/88/90, 9800, and 9900/30/81 running OS6 and higher including OS7 or OS7.1. I highly recommend it and, if you haven't already, be sure to check it out in BlackBerry App World for $.99.
