    Thanks goes out to Tellsells for being incredibly responsive and helpful in testing and refining this theme, to HoopzKid for also being incredibly helpful in porting this to the storm, to Aftashok for brainstorming and testing on a 9700 and StaticFX for his awesome findings into the wonders of what is possible with the right coding!

    some unique features:
    • nearly everything on the homescreen is hideable, making Metro highly customizable and wallpaper friendly!
    • dock icon text is hideable via shortcut keys (see navigation preview below)
    • today area is hideable via shortcut keys (see navigation preview below) - swipe right from calendar to show SMS, left from SMS for calendar
    • the dock FADES in/out when you show/hide respectively
    • the weather icon FADES in/out when you show/hide respectively
    • the weather icon has status text (app icon name)
    • custom flash animation on focus of homescreen icons (the box around the icon flashes and then stays visible)


    so here it is, Metro!














    Also, there are 8 shortcuts on the homescreen (use the caps key for letters):
    (see screenshots for OS6-specific shortcuts)
    • N = bbm
    • M = Messages
    • $ = SMS/MMS
    • L = Profiles
    • @ = Connections
    • Spacebar = QuickLaunch
    • K = Calendar
    • O = Options


    And homescreen feature shortcuts (see screenshots for OS6-specific shortcuts)
    • J locks dock, U unlocks it
    • X hides weather, Z shows weather
    • * shows icon text, # hides icon text
    • W hides dock underlay, # or * shows it
    • T shows today area, ESCAPE hides it (swipe right from calendar for SMS, left from SMS for Calendar)


    And with the Metro bundle, your device can adapt to your lifestyle!
    Metro White's stark contrast of black text on white background for message lists, menus and popups make it ideal for use in bright settings.
    Metro Black is ideal for nighttime or dark settings (cinemas or lowlit parties).
    With its smooth grey fonts on black background, its easy on the eyes.


    I worked very hard to make this theme work perfectly, I hope you all enjoy it!

    Links are up!




    if you are on a mobile device, go to themes>bundles to access the bundle (should be within the first 3 pages)

    let me know what you think!
    And feel free to post screenshots!

    Enjoy!
    Bbt

    **please do a battery pull after installing a new theme!**

    That would be an instant purchase from me.

    good to hear you are looking forward to it!

    i will hopefully be able to have it released by sunday, the day before i leave for europe (ill be back in 2 weeks)

    it will have the same options for the dock as the nontouch, but will probably have an options dialog menu instead of relying on the keyboard shortcuts

    look for the update! ill probably post in the storm section when done

    thanks

    I now have a torch 9800, it would be awesome to see a theme like this for it. I used Metro and the Slate on my Storm and wouldn't chang them for the world so please if you can make one for OS6 that would be awesome.

    hey DJ,

    [EDIT: see couple posts down.. I figured it out!]

    i've been looking into it recently, but haven't figured out how to disable the os6 banners which conflict with the elements of my theme. I guess I could just leave the banners up top and then add the dock on the bottom, but I'm not sure that would look that great. still looking into it! hopefully i will figure it out soon.

    thanks!

    hey freeusefuse,

    yeah the theme works on os5/4.7/4.6 etc for non-touch devices (see versions at the product page)

    it does support os6 on the torch (9800 device)

    let me know if you have any other questions! You can always email me as well at bbtdesigns@gmail.com
