IT looks similar to default but you changed the wallpaper.

I've made a couple of themes and yeah, modifying every theme in the same way gets tedious. Good job on the theme.

Wow. I thought that this screen name looked familiar. GSeth that used to/still makes SE themes.

I actually like how this looks, still stock, but definitely different. Not bad for a first theme.

Definitely some nice work on the icons. They fit perfectly with the wallpaper. Yet it's not too crazy like some rainbow-colored themes people make. Simple, yet attractive! Good job

Nice idea -- I personally like icons that are instantly recognizable, but customized. You strike a perfect balance, and of course they blend with the wallpaper -- nice attention to detail.

With all the themes I've tried, I've come to the conclusion that I like having a profile icon at the top, as you've left the default position -- and also a weather icon. But I like the weather icon in an atypical position. Many themers place it at the top right, but below the top title bar. I've found this takes more screen real estate than necessary. The placement I like best for this is at the exact same height on screen as the profile icon, parallel to it.

Also really like the new transitions available in the latest RIM Theme Builder. If you could take this new theme of yours, add a weather icon in the top title bar parallel and directly across from the profile icon, and add 5.x screen transitions, this would be ideal in my opinion.

First thing I noticed was the icons! Background is simple and clean, I like that, but the icons are the real draw for the theme.

Might have to give this a go on the 9700 and see what other simple things I can do to tweak some of my themes as well with the focus layer and such..

I'll let the wife try this out on the 8900, I'm sure she'll really like it. Thanks again!

Very nice. Wold love to see this for the 85xx if you're so inclined. I you're using Theme Builder 5, you can use the newer profile icons so folks like me (pushing 50) can see the icon. I never could use precision themes before now because I could not see the tiny circle on the profile icon in the banner. The newer icons all have the indicator to the right of the.
