    Default Z Theme - Customize your Z10

    Z Theme - Customize your Z10-1.jpg

    This is the latest app I've had accepted to BlackBerry World. It's called ZTheme, and it's the closest thing to theming you can get for the BlackBerry Z10.
    You can modify the background color and add shadows to your icons, create docks, place buttons behind the time and the buttons, and change the wallpaper. You can select a wallpaper from your filesystem, take one with the camera, or select one of the included wallpapers.
    You can also backup your settings so its easy to apply a new wallpaper.
    If you create a style you really like, you can send it to friends from the Photos folder.

    As an example, here's how my Dev Alpha looked before I returned it:
    Z Theme - Customize your Z10-img_00000134.jpg

    I have an update mostly built that adds a few more buttons, bbm integration, and fixes a bug with the camera invocation, but I need my Z10 to arrive so I can test it before I release it.
    If you have any questions or suggestions let me know!

    Cost is $1.99

    My thoughts exactly It's not near as good as theme builder is, but it's pretty good if I do say so myself.

    SCrid2000,
    Does this have to run as an Active frame to effect the changes?
    Looks very cool. And, very unexpected. I didn't think we'd see even limited theming for BB 10.

    No. Just generate your theme, apply it, and close the app.
    If I add a battery percentage option it will have to stay open for that to work, but the theme is static and doesn't change once applied for now, and doesn't need the app to stay open.

    If you have any suggestions, let me know and yes, I do plan to improve it; an update will be coming as soon as I get my Z10.

    Is this changing the wallpaper as I have the wallpaper changer HD as well and I don't want them to conflict?

    Wow, that's a pretty clever way around the lack of themes. Nice job!

    Unfortunately this app and Shao's HD WallPaper Changer are not compatible, I need to talk with Shao about integrating our apps

    Also please fix the image re size issue as wallpapers are not displaying properly. They get resized for some reason when choose.

    Thanks.

    Images are stretched to fit the 1280x768 screen size, which also matched the dimensions that the camera takes pictures at (although there is a bug in the current version that causes the camera to take pictures in landscape mode - this has been fixed and will be available soon). If this was not done, anything taken with the camera would be perhaps 4 times the size of the screen.
    Would you like me to look into a way to allow you to crop your image prior to including it as the wallpaper?

    Well I would love if there was a way to stop them from vertically stretching as it ruins all the pootermobile wallpapers that I assign.

    Ok I see what you're saying. As an example, I'll use this Pootermobile Wallpaper:
    Z Theme - Customize your Z10-le_banner.png
    When it's stretched, it looks like this:
    Z Theme - Customize your Z10-stretch.png
    Unfortunately, if it's not stretched, it looks like this:
    Z Theme - Customize your Z10-nostratch.png

    How does that wallpaper look if you just apply it with the Z10 so I know what the goal is? (My Z10 hasn't been shipped yet).
    The problem is getting a square image to look right on a tall and narrow rectangular screen.

    I hope in the next update you can add the ability to make a lock screen theme and home screen theme if it's possible to be done it will be so cool

    And to add the ability to transparent the docks color if it's possible

    With an image like that, your only option is to keep the aspect ratio when resizing. Granted, it wouldn't fit the whole screen, but it's the only way if you want the whole image to show on the wallpaper without stretching out. Maybe make that an option in the app?

    Yeah I mean I would rather have the wallpaper cut than have it vertically stretched and looking strange. To illustrate more the below screen shot is without running your app just assigned directly from the poorer mobile wallpaper app in the z10.
    Z Theme - Customize your Z10-img_00000124.png


    While this one is assigned using your app....see the difference.

    I'll look into adding a device lock setting, but I don't think there's a WW API for it yet.
    Do you want the docks to appear transparent, or the included docks to have a transparency option? I guess I'll do both

    Ah, of course I can definitely include support for using square and rectangular images, thanks for the idea I can write the code tonight, although I won't be able to test it for a few days.

    OK, I've got two ways this can be done for a square image: center the image at 1280x1280, or shrink it to 768x768 and include a colored background (white or black as options probably). I'll include both in the update that I'll push out as soon as I get my Z10
    Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

    This is assuming you're using a perfectly square image, which would have an aspect ratio of 1:1. I would recommend finding the aspect ratio of the original image, then set the width to 768, and the height to whatever the the height would be, with the original aspect ratio.

    Yes. I've just about got the code finished for that requires some mathematical calculations, but nothing too difficult.
    Not to drag things off topic, but I noticed your XBox app in BB World - very cool What language is that written in?

    Thanks! It's QML/C++, with I think, 4 lines of JavaScript, because I was lazy.
