I have another premium theme to show you from Zuki Software Ltd. I fell in love with this one. It’s called Luminosity, and looking at it you can see why. You’ll feel 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s all at once. You’ll swear you can hear Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” in the background playing. It’s bright, transitions so neat, and the options flies. Check it out…
When I first saw this theme, I was as captured by this as the Beatles theme by Built By Request. It’s classic and bright, and it just never ceases to amaze me. Luminosity is available in the BlackBerry Sync Store for 4.99, but is only $3.49 till May 23rd. Here’s the description from the BlackBerry Sync Store:
This super slick theme is colourful , handy with 12 icons on home screen and as soon as you download It you will feel right at home using it.
With the icons changed to a simple and effective black square with silver brushed metal icons you will just love using this theme day in day out.
With some neat animations and screen transitions added to make the theme live up to it’s name.
You’ll also love the red digital clock in large font right in the middle of the home screen. The battery and signal meter stand proud in colour. So you can always see at a glance how your BlackBerry is performing
- Slide screen transitions zoom in and out immaculately
- No lag whatsoever – Very smooth
- Battery/signal/network are colourful and clear to see without spoiling the theme’s look
- Visually stunning HD graphics
I downloaded and installed this theme to my BlackBerry Tour 9630 with OS 5.0. The theme installed quickly, did my battery pull after activation and behold. The theme looks like streams of sparkling light dancing straight to the top. There’s aquamarine, blue, violet, pink, magenta, red, red-orange, orange, yellow, and green. The top left has a tiny battery life indicator, the top right sits the signal indicator, coverage, and the GPS. The next level has the date in white, and the middle has the time in digital fashion in bright red. Below that sits a double row of not a few, but twelve customizable icons. These can be anything you decide. I love having to choose which ones I want. If you scroll on the first two on the right, they will be highlighted in a glowing light blue aura, the second in purple, third in pink, the fourth in red, the fifth in yellow, and the last in sea green. Message indicators come up looking like the very top of the drink umbrellas in different colors and integrate in the apps so you can see your alerts.
Click the options button and the first transition you will notice immediately. A very important note to keep in mind, the Gmail icons are the hardest to cover. They don’t accept the theme completely and it’s more of a BlackBerry issue than of a theme, so don’t hold it against a theme. I’ve tried several and the gmail icons always stay as the default. So the transition when you hit the menu button goes inward, bringing up all your folders and icons you have set. The icons are easy to figure out and are black with white and grey. Scrolling over these icons causes them to be surrounded by a grey aura. Any folder such as messages, etc you open will transition outward. And if you’re in messenger and writing, when you go to send, the options menu comes up and when you click send message, the menu flies up from whatever point you are in the message. Now the highlight bar is really different. It’s black with block like lines of color. The hourglass becomes a grey box with green lines that run through it.
All in all a really great theme, and while I can’t really explain how the menu flies, I can compare it to the poof from Tweet Genius. It just flies up fast from whatever point you’re at. The transitions go into and out of each other, which is also hard to explain, but it’s really neat. And yes, I had to include the call screen so you could see how different it is.
Luminosity is compatible with OS: 5.0 only
And compatible with BlackBerry Devices: Bold 97xx and 9650 Series, Tour 96xx Series, Curve 89xx Series
There’s also an edition for the Curves
If you like color, a theme that’s colorful without hurting your eyes, transitions, special effects, and not one that wears on the phone, then what are you waiting for? Especially with the time sitting bright in the middle in digital red. If you grab a copy, let me know what you think.
