We all dream of taking a trip to the islands. Whether it’s to the Caribbean, Bahamas, Hawaii or Fiji we just want to stick our toes in the sand and relax. But the bottom line is island vacations are expensive. But what if you could bring a little of the island life to your everyday grind. I don’t mean filling your car with sand or growing a coconut tree. I mean customizing your BlackBerry with and island theme.
The Tropical Burgundy and Yellow theme, by Paige All Day, is an island theme that can bring the laid-back feeling to your phone. For starters, the background of the theme is a rich, burgundy highlighted by tropical white leaves that run along the right side, an image that almost mirrors a Hawaiian shirt. All the text is changed to a more relaxing font written in a deep yellow. Yet the font is still easy to read.
The date and time are written across the top of the screen along with the battery life icon and the reception icon. The two icons are changed a bit, but not much of a difference. The application icons all stay the same as you previously had them. However, when selecting them they are encompassed by a yellow, cloud-like selecting bubble.
Unlike most theme apps I review, I didn’t find any technical problems with this one. All the text was clearly written and easy to read. All the buttons and icons worked. And it downloaded in seconds.
All in all this is a fun, stylish app. The one thing I will say is it does give off a girly feeling. I don’t know how comfortable the average guy would be with this theme on his phone. For the price of $2.99 it’s above average as far as themes go. But if you’re looking for an island feel for your phone, this is definitely the theme for you!
