Here's an update to Bignumbers Theme

Added static upper dock with today items, inbox, sms, and calendar. There's also a browser icon and the 3Gicon is a button to Network Settings. I've also added a weather slot and made the clock clickable.

Several different versions.

With ApocalypseFax I made it compatible with 5.0 and added a hidden dock version.

Big Numbers

I had the idea for these battery and signal indicators the other night as I was falling asleep. I remembered them today and built a theme around them. I used 10blanco as my starting point so some of it may look familiar. Notably the custom icons that I made for 10blanco.

There is a static dock version and a hidden dock version. both have 6 user defined icons. The hidden dock version also, if you use a dark wallpaper, hides the clock/time as well. its still there, just harder to see without the white bar.

The Console Series

I saw a couple themes that used a circular module that had icons, clock, and meters all neatly packed in the center of the screen and I got inspired to try something new for a blackberry user interface. Console611 was born. 6 for the user defined icons and 11 because 6 plus 5 static icons is 11. Also, 611 is my favorite number and has deep secret meaning between me and some friends.

6 user defined mini icons
5 static icons
weather slot
hidden today
customized and consistent menu & lists colors
custom call screens
custom batt/signal
custom hourglass.
wallpaper friendly with more translucent home console.
$ shortcut to sms/mms

Console611 OTA 4.7
Console611 OTA 5.0

ConsoleII -
with this one I kind of just went nuts. Super sleek and stylized center dock with futuristic battery and signal meters. and... wait for it, a totally unique hidden dock.

ConsoleII stats: bottom console with custom batt/signal meters, clock area, 5 static today icons. hidden 11 user defined icon dock. wallpaper friendly, space bar opens quicklaunch, $ opens sms/mms.

console II OTA

I kind of copped out on the app screen banner and recycled the one from Aliendash. So out of my shame I started from scratch with a new idea and came up with Console3.

Console3 stats:
hidden 10 user defined item dock
6 item static dock
weather slot (with 80x80 icon)
clock button
custom app, call and lock screens
3g icon
custom battery/signal meters
wallpaper friendly (kinda)
NO TODAY. sorry I'm over it.
minimal transitions (app to home/home to app only)

Console3 OTA 5.0

Console3 OTA 4.7

ConsoleII and Console3 got the attention of a blackberry blogger who did some reviews of these themes. Check them out here:

10blanco and 8 Big

These two themes are pretty different but to me, have the same vibe.

8 Big was just an experiment to see if I could do a theme with HUGE battery and signal meters. I also used my customized extra large Arial Black font for the clock. It maintained a lot of the features from the 8 and 10 series. I went lightweight on this by not including custom wallpapers.

10blanco is essentially a white version of 10black2 with features like, a hidden 10 item dock. wallpaper friendly. custom batt, signal, & icons, 3g icon, spacebar-quicklaunch, $ - sms/mms, weather, transitions, 5.0, large clock.

One thing that is noticeably different and kind of a big deal on this one is the icons. I created a whole custom set of icons for this one.
