Default Today Theme

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone come across a Today theme or Today Plus with legible font on the home screen? All I've tried have such small font I can't read my calendar entries making them pretty much useless.

Wirelessly posted (Its All About the U!)

I have not and what makes it worse is that they appear different in the screen shots

PM me and I'll send you the files if you want.

If you have a background you want to use I can make you one like this using your background.
Possible to also have 2 (large Font) lines for email in addition to the 2 lines for calendar with the icon dock limited to one line?

gadzooks64,

Thanks for posting your themes, they look nice. But all themes have to be posted in the Media Center section of the forum and they have to be posted in the format outlined here:

http://www.blackberryforums.com/medi...-deletion.html

Please repost your themes in that forum and so they meet the requirements. I'll have to delete your posts here, but I'll wait until you see this.

You would not be able to read black text on that dark background. That's why I created two versions, one with black text for lighter colored backgrounds and one with white text for the darker colored backgrounds.

Anybody can build these themes using the Plazmic software.

I encourage you to give it a try.

I explained to Daphne that I am not willing to do the work necessary to post these themes in the format the forum requires because I'm giving them away for free. If anybody wants them after the link is gone please feel free to PM me.

Everyone is required to meet the theme posting requirements whether the themes are free or not. There is a reason for the requirements, that being we don't want users to download themes that are incompatible with their phones and risk having to reload the OS. If you look in the Media Center section here, you will see free and paid themes all posted in the correct format. We are required to delete them otherwise.

There is always drama with the Theme Writers. Always.

I'm fine with this.

This file contains something like 14 different themes. That's a lot of work to do when I'm not charging anything for them.

I'm not trying to be a Diva. Just lazy.
