    Confessions and Disappointment of a theme developer

    Advertisement



    So I have to confess, I did the unthinkable, I purchased a theme


    In an effort to understand and possibly design something similar, I bought "Flowberry" from Bplay. I have been playing with it for the last two days and here are my thoughts. It is a very well designed theme from an interface perspective. The coverflow design of course works really well with the trackball, and the buttons are nice. Beyond those components, it is all disappointing from there. Besides the coverflow(which I am trying to figure out how to do) the rest of the theme is very standard. It comes with "stock" Dimension themed hourglass, TX/RX data indicators, and menus. The information/status bar on top looks like a rookie designed it. We do better work here....for cheaper

    $6.99 is reasonable price however I think I'd wait for the cheaper version. Don't get me wrong I love a great theme, but when I saw the theme in question on B-Play I noticed that homescreen was the only stand out part of the theme.

    The animation is the only thing going for the flowberry theme, the crossbar theme too.......there is so much more that you and some of the other themers do to customize the menus, banners, fonts, buttons, etc. that realy make themes special and unique.

    Once you figure out how they get the left/right smooth scroll action in either direction as needed, everyone will be like bPlay who?....never heard of them! But I've heard of that theme Dr.!

    I don't think I could ever buy a theme haha. That's why I started to develope themes. Personally I don't think those websites like Bplay have themes worth the price (no offense to them) but I think BB themes should always be free.
