Bold Theme Reviews
I thought it was about time to not only have theme(s) posted but also include an area where we can review a theme if we choose. I think it's important to have available information that will allow everyone to make better decisions before downloading and installing a theme. It will keep us from installing countless theme(s) only to delete them and also give our Theme(s) makers ideas.

Bold Today Plus (JC Designs)
I've been reviewing theme(s) since late 2005 so I thought I would take a look at this new Bold theme and how GadgetBean.com works. Yes, I troll all the sites that offer theme(s) for sale and donate the $ to get the theme (if I have to) and see if they are truly worthy it two categories.
1. The theme and how well it works
2. Customer service
1. This theme being made for O.S 4.6 and using the newest version of CDK shows just how neat a Blackberry phone can be and also proves CDK has improved from it's early days. While the icons are nothing new is offers some neat features the default themes do not. The Today Plus theme(s) have always been sought after and people have gone extra lengths to get-em. This theme shows why, it continues the tradition of allowing the user to have the most information possible on the home screen and always easy to get. This theme(s) navigation is great is worth every penny a person spends on it. All the Banner objects are placed in the correct place and graphics throughout are the correct size causing no delays or slowdowns as you scroll to different corners of your BlackBerry phone.
The bottom dock simple put? ROCKS! Nice touch with this feature and it's neat. Pictures and Videos do NOT do it justice. The Bold default icons are nice and good enough to make you forget about that fact they are default icons. I really like this little known feature. In the past it was very important to create or come up with a different set of icons because the default icons in the past were lame. These icons fit the theme perfect. If I did have to offer a warning it would be with the focus icon choice. The focus icon shakes slightly and while it's ok, it does not trip my trigger. Actually i think about getting dizzy. I would like to see another option here like a Glow effect or something else. I really love how the theme was designed to allow the user to change the background image which will also change the sub-menu screen background also. The is a nice touch and is one I used in order to continue using the theme. I placed my own personal choice as a background and to me it's much more pleasing to my eyes. This again allows the user to customize the theme and I think this feature was a good choice by GB.
This theme is a winner in anyones book.
2. Customer service I can't review at this time. Customer service is not about selling a product and making sure the person gets what they pay for. When a person pays for a product it's given they should get what they payed for.
Customer service comes after the purchase. For example: Can a person purchase a product and request a few minor changes to meet their needs?
Example 2: If there is a bug it should be fixed and a new version made available at NO cost.
I will be requesting a few minor changes in the near future and will report back on the results. For the record it took me more than 24 hours to get this theme after making a donation/paying for it.
This new Bold Today Plus Theme is a winner and one of the Best Theme(s) I've had the pleasure to review. I will be reviewing more this just happens to be the first.

I love this theme. I purchased it last week and the guy was pleasant. He did say something about vacation or work this week though. If I wanted changes they would have to wait till he got back. I was happy with the customer service.
thumbs up on this one from me too... free themes are nice and developers are appreciated - but, this one IS worth a few bucks...
