BerryGlowDesigns is fresh out of the gate and already making a stir in the developer world. Their latest theme Airy has made waves all over the internet. When I met BGD I was pretty impressed with the knowledge they have even being so new. Let’s dive in and check out what Airy has to offer!
While a lot of developers are changing everything about a theme BerryGlowDesigns saw a good thing and decided not to change it but to add to it. That’s what attracted me to Airy the most. The homescreen has four user defined icons which are changed to the very colorful BlackBerry 7 icons (previously BB6.1). I do love these icons, they are so much better than the stock BB6 Precision icons. Since the wall is stock it makes it ever so wallpaper friendly. Having 4 icons on the bottom, you have plenty of open real estate for your favorite picture without anything being in its way…its well, Airy! The indicators are at the top and bottom in the upper right and lower left, and the nice big clock is very easy to read. The Unread notifier is clickable just like the BlackBerry6 original theme makes it nice to have 1 touch access to your Messages.
The fact that this theme is mostly stock is far from a bad thing. RIM makes a very nice theme; that mixed with BGD’s additions make for a pretty sweet theme. I would definitely look for BGD for future work; they are new but are leaving great impressions where ever they go. You don’t see new developers making new themes for the Berry anymore; it’s nice to see that there is some still lingering. As BGD grows I can see them joining the ranks of the great ones. As a developer myself it excites me to see what they will come out with next! After playing with this theme for a bit, I can give it a very solid Silver Nerd Approved award.
