What is Euphoria? It is a theme that is catered towards (but not restricted to) the working professional. These people get the most use out of their Berries where the proper theme can be considered their sidekick in the work force. If a BlackBerry was like a dog to a police officer, then a theme is the breed of that dog... and you always need the right breed for the right job! Euphoria helps to get things done quicker, is easy on the eyes, and professional enough that there are no worries pulling out your device in front of your boss!
Chances are, you've never used a theme so powerful, flexible and feature-rich, all the while maintaining eye-popping aesthetic appeal AND subtle everyday usability.
VinceThePrince themes are never compiled in BlackBerry Composer. Instead, each and every line of code is personally hand-coded in Notepad. What does this mean for you? It means the highest possible performance efficiency, you'll feel like you're running a theme that came with your device! Anyhow, let's get on with the theme Walkthrough =)
The complete Euphoria experience is unique in a way that it spans FOUR different screens. Upon loading the theme (make sure you battery pulled!), you are greeted with your Home Screen:
Notice the screen indicator at the top, a subtle but useful touch to keep track of what screen you're on. This screen houses three of your most useful apps, as well as a very nifty information widget. This widget contains two user-defined slots, as you can see I have Profiles in slot #1 and Weather in slot #2. Also, you can launch the Clock app from this widget by clicking on the time. Lastly, there is a cool feature where you can display your own name on this widget! Just edit your Owner information (Options -> Owner -> Name) and it will show up! Finally, don't forget you can start QuickLaunch (sold separately) by pressing Space, as well as SMS by pressing the dollar sign ($).
Scrolling to the right will bring you to the screen above. It lets you view your full wallpaper in all its glory. If by chance you're NOT a wallpaper junky, or you just want some more functionality out of this screen, no worries because Euphoria is about choice, it conforms to how YOU want to personalize and use it:
With a simple built-in toggle (I'll show you that soon), you have the choice to convert the simple wallpaper-friendly screen, to either a single-dock or dual-dock affair! These docks are fully user-defined of course, were you really expecting anything less? Anyways, let's head onto the screen to the left of the Home Screen:
This is the Today screen, where you can get a quick glance at your upcoming appointments and newest e-mails. Both are capable of a whopping NINE full-length entries!
Finally, this is where things get even more interesting... the Options screen!
Here you'll be able to change the theme's colour WITHIN the theme! At first, I was going to make 6 different versions of Euphoria that had to be purchased individually, but instead I decided to merge all of them into one purchase, and let YOU decide what colour you want to rock out with! With this powerful option, it's very easy to match wallpapers with your choice of colour scheme. Here's an example:
Also on the Options screen, you can also change various settings, like the number of Docks on Screen #4. From here, you can also toggle the default wallpaper, the information widget on the Home Screen, and also the backdrop for the Today entries, if you don't need it.
Well, that's it for the walkthrough! I hope you enjoyed following along, and if you are still on the fence about purchasing, you can get a taste of what Euphoria's all about with this free OTA download of the BASIC version!
