Liven up your BlackBerry with Palladium by drkapprenticeDESIGNS & Mobster Mobile Design


Palladium Turquoise

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.

Transform your BlackBerry into Windows 8 with dD_Metro by drkapprenticeDESIGNS


dD_Metro Hero

As a theme addict, one of my criteria on choosing a theme is customization. File size and resources take a backseat to having a beautifully rendered design grace my display. As a BlackBerry Bold 9900 owner, and certified theme junkie, I'm always looking for a theme that grabs my attention and meets my expectations. Then I happened see a few tweets and forum posts about a new theme by drkapprenticeDESIGNS and decided to give it a try. If you haven't already heard of them, this team is behind such popular themes as the CB Appreciation Theme, MiniBanner Live and De_Nex7

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.
