Torch 9800: Classic Today +

Theme Name:  Classic Today +

Cost: Free as always, but if you like my work please consider making a donation so I can continue making themes.

Supported Device(s):  Torch 9800

Theme Description:   This is a variation on my Classic +  and Classic Hidden + themes.  I am not a fan of the overly busy standard Torch theme so for my Classic + series I made something more in the classic blackberry style but still with lots of features and extras. 

Highlights of Classic Today + include:
  • "Today" Messages area that will show any new messages
  • "Today" Calendar area that will show your next 4 upcoming appointments
  • 8 user selectable bottom icons in the "double dock" style 
  • 2 user selectable Mini icons up top (intended for Profiles and Weather, but can be used for whatever you want)
  • Click on the battery meter to open Options
  • Click on the signal meter to open Manage Connections
  • Click on the time to open Clock/Alarm
Also 3 hotkeys:
  • The spacebar will open Messages
  • 0 (zero) will open the Calculator
  • $ will open Text Messages
So that is a total of 18 items that can opened right from your home screen.  Or simply hit the menu key to be brought to the classic All Applications screen.
*Note: because of limitations of the Beta version of theme builder, landscape mode is not supported in this theme.  This theme will be updated once theme builder is updated.

I love this theme, but I did notice when the screen rotates there is a white bar that comes up on the side. Not sure if its just me. Keep up the great work.

Joe - see the note above.

Love this theme, I prefer the classic style.
I think OS6 is great but the stock home screen is laggy and the way it minimizes drove me nuts. This is much smoother.
Thanks Theme Zone! If you guys release a fix for the landscape issue I'll definitely be donating

Grat Product
When hovering over messages can we have it listed on 2 lines or a smaller font

Has the landscape issue been solved?

The Theme Zone said...

@Anonymous,

Not not yet, we are still waiting for an update from RIM. My best estimate is that it will take them approx another month before they will be able to take Theme Builder 6 out of beta.

Great theme but the font for the calendar should be smaller, with the size you used there's not enough space.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the great theme. However, I would also like to have smaller fonts and more lines for messages.

Hi there, how do you change the 2 user selectable Mini icons up top???

The Theme Zone said...

@Anonymous,

The main 8 icons are set to be the first 8 icons from your main all applications list.

The top 2 icons are the next 2 icons (meaning the first 2 from the 3rd row of your main all applications list).

I agree with the poster above. If the calendar font were smaller and the landscape mode worked, this would be the perfect theme

agreed

love the theme - only thought from me is the notification icons above the messages i beleive should be able to be highlighted and selected as well shouldnt it?

The Theme Zone said...

@anonymous,

That would be rather redundant. That way you would have 2 items side by side that both open messages. What would be the point or need for that?

Anonymous said...

Wasn't thinking about the redundancy aspect. Some apps (facebook, ebay, whatsapp, etc, etc) put the msg indicator there - and I find that if I touch/click the words "messages" it doesn't always bring up or include the apps that's is showing in the indication. Hope I'm making myself understood! Probably a long winded reply!

Seem like the Webhoster closed his free Service, maybe someone else could help out and put the file to an other Server? To say, the ones which downloaded it earlier?
