    Are you ready for a taste of the Android Honeycomb on your BlackBerry device? WJD Designs presents HoneyBerry a theme inspired by the newest operating system on the Android platform. As of 1/17/11 Honeycomb hasnt even came out commercially to the Android users but that didnt stop us from emulating the experience to the BlackBerry device. The interface, icons, widgets all are inspired by Honeycomb and look amazing on the BlackBerry device.

    Lets start of by looking at the lower left hand corner where you will be presented with a Left Home Right button group. Each button corresponds to a homescreen layout.


    • The Left arrow button will allow you to see a homescreen with your Calendar events in a today style view. You can scroll up to each task and select them to directly enter the calendar view.
    • The Right arrow button will allow you to see the Email widget which will give you another today style view. Both of these views allow for more information being displayed at once on different screens.
    • The Home button will allow the user to be in the center screen where they have 8 icons on 480360 screen size devices or 6 icons on the Storm/Torch devices.

      *Note you must hit the Home icon before moving to the apposite screen*
    • Next we have the top overlay widget group that can be accessed on the home screen by scrolling up from the icons. If you scroll and click on the Google search widget you will be sent to the Google Search App ! (MUST HAVE GOOGLE SEARCH APP INSTALLED Pick it up free @ www. m.google.com/search
    • Scroll one more to the right and click to access the default BlackBerry voice application.
    • Slide to the right and you will be on the quick App Screen button. This is an alternative to get you to your application list instead of hitting the hard key.
    • Slide one more to the right and you will be able to click the x/- on screen to show and hide the application icons. This will allow you to see a full screen wallpaper that you can select through your options area!


    *KEYBOARD DEVICES* We implemented a special keyboard quick key list you can view by looking below*

    This is an awesome theme! I love the icons and the font size, it is nice and clear and easy to read. I wish that the focus for the top right corner icon (+/-) would highlight it more, it is very hard for me to see when I am on it. The App icon focus changes that icon to grey and makes it easier to see. Is there anyway to make that little house icon on the bottom banner, show the hidden dock and maybe use the back button to hide the dock. It would eliminate having to try to get up to that top right corner. Just a little thought.

    But it is really a gorgeous theme. Thank you

    I found a small flaw, when I open my Message screen, the messages extend past the edge of the overlay area. Also, it seems when I have more than messages showing on the bottom banner, it pushes my batteryEx icon off the banner. See my photo above when I only had TWO messages, the batteryEx icon was there, but on this image when I have THREE messages, the batteryEx icon disappears.

    We are looking into a fix for the messages. What are you referring to as the batteryEX icon?

    On my first posting of 3 photos, it is the rainbow icon with 77 next to it, that shows my battery % level. I noticed if I had 1 or 2 emails, all the notifications fit down there, but 3 or more emails and it drops off my BatteryEx icon. Can you expand the notification box on the bottom so that this doesn't happen? As it is, I couldn't get any more notifications in this area.

    Ok thanks for the clarification. There isn't a ton of space to allow for multiple notifications across the bottom there.

    well only enough room for two notifications is kind of hard, for most of us. We all have Facebook, SMS, BBM, Weather icons, and Battery icons that needs to go into the notifications area. Some times I can have like 5 notifications at the same time and if you are will only allow 2 to show............ well that is kind of bad.

    Great theme but when I click on the Google search widget I'm taken to the Search screen. Yes, I do have the Google Search App installed. I'm wondering if it needs to be in a certain position?
    Other than that nice job

    The search was originally set up for the default blackberry search. That is being updated in the next update as most people wanted to have Google search instead.

    just buy the 9700 version for the 8900 as will work fine!

    only difference is call screen font positions cant be changed, dont know why havent simply ported it over already???

    then 8900 version comes out can get them to swap it over for you so have perfect one!

    Thanks for the idea BUT we want to do everything device specific - and this was also not in the right forum - when we are ready to release for that device we will put it in the appropriate forum

    thats alright, just wanted to save you some work and get you an extra sale!

    no point building from start again as only diff with 9700 and 8900 is call screen font positioning so a simple port over is all thats needed!

    Thanks and its not a copy that word sounds rough - emulation is better the fact is all the UI was made piece by piece - the wallpaper was made as well - this took some time - we are not willing to port over for another device and we will do it all again since we believe the approach is smarter - some users might not like devs that cut corners - we want to give the best experience we can....

    We are removing weblinks - there's issues with those - sluggish isn't happening on our torch devices... can you tell us what kind of apps are installed that may interfere ie; memory reporting apps do more bad than good...

    MeterBerry isn't the best to run - imagine how much "listening" the applications is doing to slow down ram - I never recommend process killer/recorders and any sort of memory management because of the Blackberry architecture and the low device memory....
