Another beautiful design built SamgbxDesigns. Combining simple, attractive and highly digible wallpapers Circulo takes another stab at the cool homescreen widget made popular by Android phones. But this time he’s slipped in a row of user defined icons as well, so everyone wins!
Circulo is compatible with BlackBerry 6 & 5 devices only. This includes Curve, Pearl, Storm, Bold, Style and Torch devices. Only appears 9000 is not compatible. If you have a 5-6.0 device the $2.99 asking price is quite generous for the quality.
I loaded Circulo on my BlackBerry Bold 9650 a couple weeks back. samgbx had sent me an early build and I was in love the moment it activated. Bite sized icons all skinned to perfection, the widget, wallpapers and lightweight feel are all present. samgbx has a way about making colors I wouldn’t normally imagine myself rocking until it’s consuming my every move.
Feature wise this theme is more minimalist, true to his style with the addition of his new found knack for great widgets. And the widget is the bread, butter & ice cream! Uber small and non-intrusive, access Twitter for BlackBerry, Facebook, BBM, Settings, and your Clock, Date and Time are inside the rounded widget. Seeing where he’s taken his style it’s always been clear Sam draws influences from the more talented theme builders in the past to present, it’s also prevalent that he’s got a background in design. Whether self taught or not the end result is balanced and my thumbs can’t help to want to touch this baby.
Other bits like the menus, buttons, and focus are tight, take up little to no unnecessary space while maintaining a smooth flow from homescreen to app screen and back. Your notifications sit neatly in a tiny banner at the top of both screens. Like I said between the small detailed icons and tech tricked widget users will love every movement around the structure and your eyes will eat it up like candy! Circulo is just $2.99 and can be purchased direct from the link below.
