°°UPDATE: v2.0.18 now includes a glowing banner. Red for missed calls & new email.
I’ll be the first to admit, finding a great theme for your BlackBerry 7 device has become a grueling task. Well regardless of how much work goes into the process, the important thing is today we have another fantastic looking view for our BlackBerry Bold 99xx devices!
MINI_banner is the latest from _Lucky45 [@_Lucky45] with a little help from one of our other favorite builders drkapprentice. Originally built as another sexy theme, the two of them decided to get PlayBook 2.0 icons in this one before everyone else & that’s exactly what’s happened! MINI_banner is simple but has the right enhancements. One that I really love is the PlayBook wallpaper. A while back I was trying to pull the wallpaper from the PlayBook while maintaining the quality and had gotten a little frustrated so of course I reached out to the Theme Builders in the community for help. It took just a few seconds before I received 2-3 copies of the wallpaper. My favorite coming from MMD. This one has the same exact quality so it’s another win.
The next element that made me quite happy is the appearance of those PlayBook 2.0 icons, folders and Bridge 2.0 notifications. Each element came just minutes after those updates came from RIM. Pretty impressive. Sure they won’t be the last to use them, but they we’re the first to use the PB 2.0 and Bridge 2.0 icons/notifications far as I’ve seen. Nothing is 100% original but if you can make a theme that brings a new style or look as well as keeping all the intangibles in their respective places, then your aces in my book.
Again I think we may have said yes this theme is 100% Free. It’s not a limited time deal. You can put this on you Bold today. They’ve even updated the theme within the last 5 minutes of me writing this post so keep your eyes out for v2.0.10 or higher coming soon too.
