Airy by BerryGlowDesigns: Sleek, Fast and Functional Theme

Airy is a new theme from the development team at Berry Glow Designs who specialize in glossy, sharp icons; smooth, fluid transitions and home screen functionality. Looking for something that looks and feels a bit out of the ordinary? Then Airy is what you are looking for! The home screen of Airy looks different from other themes you have used. And that’s great because variety is always need to spice up your BlackBerry life. Instead of a complete icon dock, there are 4 icons on the home screen; 2 on each side. In the center you can read the icon name. The theme features the colorful OS6.1 icons on a dark underlay. The rocky beach wallpaper is used on the apps screen but generally does not interfere with vision of the icons.

Redox: Minimalism at its Best-Premium Theme by Pootermobile

Redox  is a new minimalist theme by theme creator Pootermobile. It’s a premium theme using the colorful OS6.1 icons but the beauty of the theme is that you rarely SEE the actual icons. The home screen is clear except for the time and weather slot. The wallpaper is the focal point here as the clock and weather (or OCD slot) are centered but are not overbearing.

Eye Kandy- a SWEET Premium Theme by Tattooz

Eye Kandy is a sweet theme for your BlackBerry phone by Tattooz. Eye Kandy comes in several flavors, er…colors: Blue, Red, Green, and Purple, and offers a bit of everything for the BlackBerry user. From a series of text buttons, hidden icon dock, weather text slot, and color-coordinated battery meter and highlights, Eye Kandy is deliciously functional. Let’s start with the text buttons at the bottom of the home screen. They are not customizable, but cover a gamut of useful activities. Buttons exist for the Browser, Password Keeper, Options, your Hidden Today agenda and, in the center, Apps. Your Hidden Today agenda lists 2 messages and 4 Calendar entries. ESC hides it again. What I consider the best part of this static menu is the Apps button in the center. Clicking it reveals 12 app icons that you may hide again so as to enjoy fully any wallpaper you would like to use.

De-Lexion Theme from Walker Themes: A Slick Way to Dress up Your BlackBerry

Can I say right off the top that I love, LOVE, LOVE this theme? It’s sleek, smooth, fast and wow! Look at those reflections under the icons! Very cool! Walker Themes newest is De-Lexion which allows true reflections under all the icons you place on your home screen; even 3rd party apps. (In the photo above, the heart icon is BatteryEx.) The icons are animated as well and jump when you scroll over them. I really like the icons because they are different from the default OS6 icons but not too unusual that you can’t identify what app you are choosing when clicking on them. You have 6 user selected icons available on the home screen dock. Click for much more!
