    Instead of retyping what is already typed, I will just redirect you to my new website JC's Themes (Maybe if I get enough revenue from theme making I will register a Domain Name)

    The theme is called Simple Tech Theme

    It is my first published theme and I am hoping to post it here first to get some criticism on how to polish it up and then I will submit it to app world for $0.99.

    Here is the special deal, if you criticize truthfully, if and when I publish it in app world I will allow you to have the final theme for free if you like or gift it to one person who likes it. It is pretty much a win-win situation.

    As I said, I am new to theme design so if there is any bug please inform me and I will see to it ASAP.

    I have uploaded Versions for
    Bold 9700 Series
    Torch 9800 Series
    Curve 3G

    If you would like me to refine the theme for these individual models or create one for your model please let me know here on crackberry.

    Great idea for a theme. However there is no landscape support on the torch. I tild the phone and get a blk screen until I press the menu button then the icons appear. If I find more I will let you know. So far just that. Very good idea for a theme. Clean and simple.

    Well as I said its my first theme so if it doesn't lag it's good luck to me ha ha

    What's funny though is after I used it for about 3 day I got sick of it. I loved the icons on the homescreen but everything else was annoying.

    I just got home from my girlfriend's and as soon as my brother gives up my computer I will begin working on the theme again.

    I downloaded it. Coming along great. Just 2 issues. 1st is the bookmark font color, its too dark on a dark background. I have a pic to show you. Just PM me your pin or email if you like to look. Also the last issue I see, is the landscape support is great, however the icons become too small and close together they appear to overlap. I also have a screenshot of it to show you. I really really believe after those are addressed you have the theme done completely.

    Ok I fixed the landscape icons. I could not keep the last column and still have good spacing so I erased it. You now have 3 less icons in landscape.

    As for the browser, I've heard of this problem before and I don not believe there is a solution..you will either have to change your browser to thumbnail view or your homepage. I guess that is the greatest flaw with this theme.

    Coming along great so far its good. As for the txt issue in the browser. I will email you if I find a way. I will ask around, I know it is fixable. I have had plenty of times I have tried, bought, that have had that issue. It is fixable. other than those.

    Keep up the great work. Looks great. Fast and easy still which is a plus. You know what your doing.

    Ok if there is a fix I will be sure to implement it into the theme.

    Most of what I know is by studying other themes and youtube videos. I still have some stuff to learn.

    I'm glad you find this theme nice. I'm pretty sure torch users like yourself will love it because you just have to touch your favorite apps on the home screen.

    If you have an idea for a new theme I'm up for ideas. I just completed a new theme for a 9300 user who wanted an OS7 theme

    Hey jonathon94, try checking the font color for the spell check. Because that may be the issue, if you change the color of the font from blk to wht it should solve the bookmarks issue.

    It looks like there is a lot but most of the basics are simple. Most of what I have to learn is svg coding.

    There was not an option for the spell check so I had to change the message colors around a little.

    Try it now and tell me what you think.

    If you have any new theme ideas I'm open for ideas. If I make a theme and it is well liked then I will try to sell it but I will always allow the original requester to get it for free.

    Svg coding is a bit hard for me now. Trying to get basics. One big issue I'm having is where to find icons or even a way to resize the ones I have. And make myself a basic theme and then work on creating some for everyone here on CB.

    Sounds like a good idea to sell I wish you the best of luck and if you do sell to make good amount of cash. I'm trying the theme now. Will post later how it does. Thanks for an update. Great to see your on top of this post and theme as well.

    I may just end this theme. If there is enough people who would want it, I will continue working on it. Otherwise I will end it and focus my time on new themes.

    you are the maker of the theme. so if its your choice its your choice. i would hate to see it go but would love to see new work from you. 1 small suggestion is to place it in the forums for the phone models ie. torch 9800. lets see how that works. im sorry ive been insane busy with work. fashion week in ny is busy time. so i havent been able to mess with theme builder.
