When it comes to selecting my next theme I prefer the completely skinned look. I gravitate towards the ones that offer a customized experienced from a redesigned home screen all the way down to new icons in the notification bar. If you feel the same then you will not doubt be amazed by the latest offering from drkapprenticeDESIGNS.
Rayzr is a fully customizable design that is not only beautiful in appearance but showcases quite a few hidden tricks, docks, and options to completely overhaul your display. When it comes to complex OS 7 themes I must say drkappretniceDESIGNS surprises us with each new one they code. While it may be a replica theme, this is one you do not want to pass up.
When you first install it looks like a simple theme with a small top banner for those who love their wallpapers. Appearances can be deceiving though. At the bottom is the same shortcut panel as JellyBerry where the bottom dock is the sliding bar for six icons (icons 2-7 in application order) and the widget control screen.
Rayzr goes one step further and not only gives you the versatility by including the clock widget but grants you the ability to change the color and opacity of the bubbles and the rings. Users can select from 10 different vibrant colors to personalize their homescreen. Not only can the rings and bubbles be modified but you can mix and match the colors for a completely different look each and every time.
When you go into the options screen, all of the widget and color controls are at your fingertips. Once activated, you have your choice of two different large clocks and the ability to scroll or tap on each individual option to select their color and opacity.
You will need to repeat for each of the bubble placements and hit the control panel button again to save and return to the homescreen. As for the bubbles themselves, the first defaults to the clock while the other two are based on whichever applications you have in icon slots 1 and 8.
I must say this is an incredible theme that just makes you scratch your head and say "how did they do that?" Especially when this is a hand coded BlackBerry OS 7 theme with so many intricate details to account for. I don't know about you but I can't wait to see what they have in store for us next.
Rayzr is easy to navigate and certainly not one I'm taking off my device anytime soon. Available for the BlackBerry 99XX, be sure to click on the link below and grab it for only $1.99. Please note that folders will be blank because of all the customization.
