I really like it and how fast it remains! I'm quite new to themes but I was wondering is there a way to make a shortcut/hotkey for universal search and messages? If I leave universal search on, I can still use the shortcuts whilst the unassigned ones can still do the search (tho i do need to delete a letter I typed) . Using this theme, I kinda miss the expanding notifications bar but if there was an option to enter into it from the homescreen then I'd hardly ever have to leave the home screen.
In the end my suggestions really don't add to much that I can't find other ways to deal with it. e.g shortcuts or convenience key.
I love what you did and your minimalist approach, I'm digging the hotkeys, the one button press to get to the application screen and the subtle return to the home screen when it begins to power down - I can see more of my wallpaper and I like that you didn't tamper with the battery icon etc .
I loved the panes on the default but I can see how ppl would prefer this and shortcuts.
what do you mean "Clock on the Homescreen is a shortcut" - are you talking about when i press down on the trackpad?
Only one nitpick in your design, when you go to the icon screen the battery and connection icons aren't aligned with the homecreen at the top.
Thanks for your time.

I have been tweaking Bare! here and there.
I've added some hotkeys (search and facebook) and did some layout tweaking.
I'll be testing this for a few days and if it works without issues, I'll release v1.1 here.
Stay tuned !!

I keep asking about this once a while, as I do think the OS 6.1 (or 7) clock icon match quite good the shiny profile icon
Attached the icon + resized icon (credits to the sabisgeek for extracting them a while back and posting in the theme developers section)

Please consider adding these(it doesn't matter to me which keys to assign to the apps, just some suggestions):
Shift+N: Blackberry News Feeds
Shift+G: Google Maps
Shift+B: Bolt Browser
Shift+T: PB Task Manager (BlackBerry App World - PB TaskManager - keep your phone faster)
Very good for killing unresponsive apps, the trial works forever I think it's ad supported.
