BlackBerry Themes – Blackberry Accessories & Apps GuideIf you’ve been a BlackBerry user for even a short space of time, you’ve likely heard about BlackBerry themes already, but even if you have already heard of them, you might not be fully aware of what they are, how they work, and how you can utilize them. Along with BlackBerry accessories, themes are probably the best way to customize your smartphone
When you install a theme, which is simple and easy to do, it can change the appearance of almost everything on your BlackBerry – the backgrounds, the screens, the home screen, the icons and even the menus. They work in much the same way as the theme system used on Microsoft Windows – literally one click gives a totally different look and feel.
There are plenty of great themes to choose from too. You can find them by visiting online BlackBerry accessories and applications stores, where you will find hundreds to choose. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll be able to find. They have everything from elegant and classy business themes to fun and quirky entertainment related ones. On the other hand, if you consider yourself creative, why not create your own theme?
The software (BlackBerry Theme Studio v5.0) needed to create your own theme is easy enough to use and, best of all, it’s free. All you need is some creativity and some skill with graphics software. On downloading BlackBerry Theme Studio, you’ll see that there are two products contained within the suite – BlackBerry Composer and BlackBerry Theme Builder.
The BlackBerry Composer is the graphic creation and editing part of the suite, and it’s great for helping you craft images, whether they’re static or animated. It’s a useful piece of graphic design software that has the basic features of the standard graphics packages that most people have on their computer. You can use it to create all the images for your theme, though you can import them from elsewhere should you wish to do so.
The actual designing of the theme is done within the Theme Builder. The selection and allocation of the images is done from here. As well as choosing the images, it’s where you can adjust the fonts, change the position of objects on the screen, and set what, if any, sounds and animations are used, and they when they play.
If you fancy making some extra money for yourself, and there is even the potential to make some seriously big money, then you can sell the themes that you create on BlackBerry accessories and applications stores. These online stores can also be used to get inspiration for creating themes. Browse through the list of top sellers and most sought after themes and you’ll have no shortage of ideas – you could even use them as templates for your own ones.
To summarize, if you’re someone that wants to make your BlackBerry truly your own, then installing a theme, to go along with some cool BlackBerry accessories, is the way to go.
