    ***UPDATE - This theme works best for 4.6 OS devices. Download the Tweaked2 theme for 5.0 devices***


    This is my first theme. Inspired by russnash's hurricane theme, which was ever so close to what I wanted, I set out to create my "perfect" theme. As the name suggests, it's the standard precision theme with a few adjustments here or there to clean up the homescreen and let me see my background better.

    This theme requires the 5.0.0.230/238 OS, or an 8520.

    Features:
    -Background shows up on both the home screen and app screen, can be changed to user preferences.
    -Homescreen banner size reduced to be the same size as the app screen banner.
    -App screen banner is translucent like the home screen banner.
    -Unselected icons have no background on the home screen.
    -No application name shown when hovering over an icon. (There's now a version which does display this, by request.)
    -Today Version: New messages/appointments appear when messages and calendar are highlighted, and you can scroll up to view them.
    -All fonts behave per normal and are sized according to system settings rather than hardcoded in the theme.

    Screenies:

    Bottom dock version, with customized (IE not the included) background:





    Today version with default background:


    Calendar entries shown when calendar icon is selected:


    OTA Download:
    Bottom Dock only: http://thesmallprint.org/blackberry/...on_Tweaked.jad

    Bottom Dock w/Today: http://thesmallprint.org/blackberry/...aked_Today.jad

    By Request:
    Bottom Dock with current app name displayed: http://thesmallprint.org/blackberry/...h_App_Name.jad

    Bottom Dock w/Today and current app name displayed: http://thesmallprint.org/blackberry/...h_App_Name.jad

    Weather:



    Put your weather app (I use weathereye) in the seventh icon position for this to work. You can go to the weather by rolling to the right when you have profiles selected.

    Standard (No App Name): http://thesmallprint.org/blackberry/...ed_Weather.jad

    W/App Name Displayed: http://thesmallprint.org/blackberry/...h_App_Name.jad

    Today With App Name Displayed: http://thesmallprint.org/blackberry/...ay_Weather.jad

    ALX files, zipped: http://thesmallprint.org/blackberry/...on_Tweaked.zip

    Nothing fancy, but I like it and am happy to share. If anyone has any suggestions for improvements, or would like to see this theme in a different style, I'm all ears.

    now with weather!

    hugokris, i think that the problem you're having is related to the 5.0 beta. i've got a similar thing going on with my curve. this should look fine in 4.6 or whatever the 8500 runs normally.

    Great theme tweak, but why does the font in the heading change from the main screen to the apps screen?

    what OS are you running? it almost seems like you don't have the font that the theme uses.

    I don't have the truncated date but the font on the date is different on the main screen than the home screen. You can see the different font also in bahamot's screenshot.

    At the time I think I had some issues with the font. I'll put out a version that fixes this. I recommend checking back and downloading again often - as this is my first theme, I'm learning a lot as I go and polishing/adding features.

    Fonts are now fixed, and the app date font is the same as the homescreen font, slightly reduced in size. Download whatever version you're using for the fix.

    I've also created a one-off version of the standard version with the default blue/black background on the app screen, by request. personally I think it's awful, but apparently some folks like it.

    base theme with visible app names.

    Sorry, no. The date is still truncated.

    Here's list of font I can find on Option->Screen/Keyboard:
    BBAlpha Sans
    BBAlpha Serif
    BBCapitals
    BBCasual
    BBClarity
    BBCondensed
    BBMillBank
    BBMillBankTall
    BBSansSerif
    BBSansSerifSquare
    BBSerif
    BBSerifFixed
    BBSimpChinese
    BBTradChinese

    Font is set to BBAlpha Sans with font size 9 and plain style. I've never changed the font, so I assume this is the default one.

    Sorry tspderek, I just found another font issue on the theme.
    I downloaded the Today With Application Name Weather version, and the application name is truncated even on BBM application name. The BBM is written as "BlackBerry Mess...".

    The date is fine though.

    Thanks heaps for creating this excellent theme even if you won't fix the issue. Really appreciate it.
