Themes are a big part of legacy BlackBerry devices. Slap a theme on an older BB device and it’ll look brand spankin’ new. The hardest part is finding good themes! I am a big fan of PooterMobile themes, and once again they came out with a theme and I jumped and bough it immediately (whatever call me impulsive). The theme is called Equis, and while it will run you US$ 1.99 I believe it’s well worth the money and maybe even some more, but don’t tell them that! Equis represents a shift toward what I think will come about as we near BlackBerry 10. All of those who want that BlackBerry 10 look and feel will have to use themes to get us there in the mean time. And while we’d love to have BB10 on our current BBs, themes can help bridge the gap. I’ll leave it to the developer to fill you in on the rest. I’m really diggin’ this theme and I’m sure I’m not gonna be the only one.
Once again The World Of Pootermobile is here to dress up your BlackBerry with flair and style! Equis is “x” in Spanish, x as in ten, BlackBerry 10! This theme uses many elements from BB10 and it looks oh so good on your OS7 /OS6 device! Most apparent are the slick and minimal icons that are pleasing to the eyes and go with pretty much any wallpaper. And that is why the neutral colors of Equis were chosen as well, for a good combination of your wallpaper and theme. Another slick addition of BB10 is in the media player with some nice blue accents and just all around goodness. To round out Equis a weather slot sits nicely on the homescreen banner for a weather app or your favorite app. What are you waiting for? Grab Equis today for a touch of BB10 on your BlackBerry!
Weather slot how-to: The icon that shows up in the top right of the banner is app number 19 in your app list. Move whatever icon you want up there to position number 19, then do a battery pull so the change can take effect. A battery pull is necessary there really isn’t a way around that.
