So over this weekend I decided to check out some new themes for the Blackberry Bold. Being the new kid on the block, the Bold doesn’t have that much GOOD selection of themes as the Pearl, or the Curve, but they are slowly coming in. This new theme by eVeek is call Ophidian and this is another good theme from eVeek.com
Now while this is a good theme from eVeek (and we must say they are a favorite here at G Style), this theme is now without some down points. For some reason the home screen is working for us like it shows in their example above.
As you can see from this live example, I’m are missing icons on on the home and this is always a chance you risk when you decide what icons should be on the home screen. It might of been better to go with a user customizable icon as I must have some of the icons they chose turned off or other, meaning it won’t show for me here. Another issue I have if the wallpaper. Not their wallpaper, which is great and looks exceptional on the Bold’s screen, but other wallpapers. They have on their site that this theme goes well with most wallpapers and they said that which is fair, but I seem to think this theme can only go well with very light colored wallpapers as since the dark green font can be hard to see on darker ones.
I must say that the icons on this theme are great. While I might of not been impressive with this style of icon on say the Curve or Pearl, they look great on the bigger screen of the Bold. Very great choice on icons! I’m also liking the meters that have been put into this theme, I love the High – Low meters, as it is very different.
This is a good theme, we would just suggest trying it out to make sure you are using some of the features that the home screen icons match up with. But overall this is another good theme by eVeek.com, if your interested in this theme, you can pick it up for free at www.eveek.com
