    Question Blank home screen themes

    Advertisement



    I'm curious to know what people think about the blank home screen themes -- do you like having no icons and using only shortcuts or do you prefer having icons such as Zen?

    I've never thought of it actually. I think I like the idea. Sometimes I have BEAUTIFUL backgrounds that I like to see more of.

    I like icons and was using the zen until the Bold U came out. I'd like to see a U with disappearing icons.

    I used to have a couple of those blank themes and yes from having a great background to go with it perspective's great but then again I wanna be able to have the shortcuts of a Zen or bottom dock/top dock. As I mentioned, I did like it at first but then after a couple of days the theme just becomes bleh! Meaning gets old. No excitement. On the other hand you could make them invisible that would work too. Hehehe.

    right now i have a themem called hidden secret. I love it. there are no icons on the home screen. you have to press the menu button tp get the icons. it makes the phone better in my opinion cause now you can see the wallpaper in full view.

    I love the look and feel. Only strange thing is that some of my icons completely hide even if I hover over them. And then some hide on the list until I hover over them. For example I have a "hole" in my list of icons where the "Messages" icon is. If I go to that area I can see the icon when I'm hovering over it. That's a bit strange.

    Also, how do you change the home screen icons that pop up? One of them has no icon and doesn't actually do anything when I click on it (5th one from the left).

    I LOVE the fonts though!

    the concept is pretty cool if you have an image that you want to see completely

    I made a Blank homescreen with my Vista collection I released...I don't know if any of you saw this or not but it's on Blackberryforums under the Media section. Would post a link but can't...not enough posts

    **Not trying to promote the site, just where I posted the theme**

    wow i love the theme you made. i'm still playing with it. when you press the menu button, the home icons are still disappearing. kinda cool i guess. leaves me with 3rd party apps.
