Default Are there any good themes out there for the Torch yet?

Please Login to Remove!

I've looked around a bit but there seems to be a serious lack of themes for the Torch available (free or otherwise). What themes are you guys using (if not the original one that came with OS6)?

As a side note, coming from the Bold2, I had a fantastic theme that showed the calendar upcoming appointments on the home screen. Hell, I'd say there were a good 8 or 9 events that were packed on the screen and all I had to do was glance at the screen to see what's coming. Most of the current Torch themes that do this simply don't make good use of the space and wind-up with fonts that are too large (although probably needed to accommodate the touch interface) and leave plenty of blank space on the screen for no good reason.

Anyways, with that all said, what are the themes that are getting your attention?

I just did a search in the themes forum and got close to 50 hits for string "torch"

Yes, I did too. I was hoping to find out if there were any "good" themes available --or themes that people here had experience using beyond just being "available"... Most of the search results in that forum brought results of people just asking if there was a Torch theme available. Beyond that, I really don't have much feedback from people actually USING the theme on their Torch.

So, is there anyone out there right now that's found a different theme other than the stock one that comes with OS6 that they're really happy with?

I've been using the Crossroads theme for about a couple of days now. Totally different from others, and smooth. I love it -

I use calendar +++ from the Theme Zone. which showes the next 9 appointments on the home screen. Also weather, battery/utilities, clock, connection management and sounds and alerts are across the top. Two rows of four icons across the bottom on home screen. Previously used the today theme on the Torch from the Theme Zone. One issue, however with calandar theme and today theme is that the home screen does not go sideways when the torch is turned horozontal. I do not find this to be an issue at all. Only issue is on the home screen - other views work properly. Many more themes at the Theme Zone. Been running themes for 9800 since September from The Theme Zone.

I have tried several that I got at themes4bb.com. I settled on one called 'iBB_V2.0'. It works very smoothly, has nice icons and looks good...

Ok, I can't find EITHER of these themes. "Calendar+++" isn't found on the Theme Zone and "iBB_V2.0" isn't found on themes4bb.com. Can either of you provide a direct link or something?
