Torch 9800: Vivid

Theme Name:  Vivid

Supported Device:  Torch 9800

Theme Description:  This is not just another homescreen replacement like almost all themes out there, nor is it just a homescreen with a few extra added elements.  This is a Full theme.  Absolutely everything that is possible to be themed has been themed.  All icons, All images, Call screen, Text messaging chat screens, etc.

I wanted to get away from the basic mostly black and white look and feel of Blackberry OS6 and give something bright, bold and vibrant.  I hope you like it is much as I do.

Here's a quick walkthrough of some of the features starting with the Homescreen:

  • 4 custom icons across the bottom
  • A 7 line Calendar area showing your upcoming appointments
  • A 2 line Messages area showing your new messages
  • When you scroll over Calendar or Messages you get a large shaded underlay under your whole Today area so no matter what wallpaper you are using you will never have any difficulty reading your appointments or new messages
At first glance the banner area is very minimalist, just the battery and signal meters and the time, but there is much more there than is first visible:
  • There are 2 hidden icons that instantly appear when you scroll up to your banner area
  • Hidden icons are:  Profiles and Weather
  • Select your battery meter to open Options
  • Select the time to open Clock/Alarm
  • Select your signal meter to open Manage Connections

In addition to the 11 homescreen applications already mentioned there is also 3 hotkeys:
  • Hit spacebar to open Messages
  • Hit $ to open Text Messages
  • Hit 0 (zero) to open Calculator
As you have already seen above Vivid uses my own custom designed icon set.  Here are some screen shots of the main All Applications screen and inside some of the folders so you can see the icons:

Next here is a few images of the call log and call screens (areas that most themes don't cover at all):

Next here is some images of the messaging list and a Text Messaging chat:

And now since I don't think I have posted quite enough screenshots yet  ;)  here is a couple more:

And finally here is the Download link:  Vivid

Note: because Theme Builder 6 does not currently properly support landscape mode (or the ability to disable it) it is highly recommended that you use an application to disable landscape mode.  The app that The Theme Zone recommends is Six Tools.  Click Here for a direct OTA link.

Looks great
Appreciate if you can use a smaller font for the messages/calendar on the Today screen and the pop up dialogs. Or would it be possible to follow the system font ?

I'm brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal daily. I'd lіkе to start a blog so I can easilу shaгe my
