    BE SURE TO READ THE LAST PARAGRAPH FOR DETAILS ON THE CONTEST WITHIN THE CONTEST

    For Theme Thursday, we're going to look at Swag, from drkapprentice designs. I've been using several of his themes now for quite some time, and I have to say, my first impression of Swag was way off base.

    Initially I thought this looked like a pretty simple design to come from a theme builder who we have gotten use to throwing together some complex themes...DRK7S and Recon to name a few. But, I had to load it to find out for myself, and to say the least, I'm very impressed.

    Swag is very sharp with the graphics, with a simple but appealing look that's very clean. The landscape view has gotten rid of the stock graphics and been replaced with the theme's. The transitions from screen to screen are also impressive. Very fast and no lag as you sometimes see in other themes. Another thing I like about drkapprentice themes is that he uses the BB fonts that you have chosen to use, and he doesn't disappoint here. You still get your chosen fonts in the menu screens but also with a transparent background. All of this, coupled with the OS 6 icons makes this one slick theme that you really do have to get.

    Some of the main features of Swag are...

    • One fixed OCD icon on the top of the animated side banner (slot1)
    • Your choice of 14 different icons that you can change on the fly (slot2 - slot15)
    • Touch the bottom of the screen to open the menu and touch your selection to change the bottom OCD icon. Then touch the return arrow at the bottom of the menu.
    • Full of hotspots (app menu, quicklaunch, berryweather, meterberry, clock and manage connections) that open with the touch of a finger.
    • Rotate the device to landscape and enjoy a fullscreen today menu with 3 entries for each: calendar, messages and sms&mms (along with a bbm spot)
    • Touch the notification area to reveal your homescreen wallpaper (touch again to hide)



    Swag also comes in 3 different colors, red, blue and grey and can be purchased in the store for $2.99 each.
    Swag Blue (6) - Themes BlackBerry Software
    Swag Gray (6) - Themes BlackBerry Software
    Swag Red (6) - Themes BlackBerry Software
