    My tester has been sent this... waiting for some feedback

    Here are some images of Boxed, and some preliminary impressions...

    The Positives:

    Wonderful design!
    Love the detail given to each icon, edge and corner!
    15 app scrolling dock - simply awesome!

    Room for improvement:

    Wifi symbol pops up beneath 3g as well as in top left corner
    Blackberry "dots" are a little pix-elated
    When on main app screen, apps with 2 lines of text are difficult to read due to background
    Missing portrait/landscape wallpaper compatibility
    Non-theme notification icons are pix-elated due to the size increase of the notification area
    When tapping on clock, blue focus area seems out of place, maybe change to transparent? Same thing happens with the manage connections hotspot for the service indicator numbers on the right hand side
    When in landscape, green focus area is not centered under icons
    Wifi icon and banner areas could stand to be reduced in size
    Possibly add SVG hidden hotspot for messages in banner
    The "arrows" indicating the Hotspots for scrolling dock are a little close to dock. Even though the hotspot is in the area above the arrow I find myself accidentally selecting a dock icon instead of the arrow
    Not the biggest fan of the font used... especially when it differs from font in first user defined icon slot
    Any way to make the gray areas ie the banner area and user defined slot semi transparent?
    In landscape, the user defined icon slot ie weather is outside the gray box area, by the slightest amount, as compared to portrait


    Thanks for the opportunity to help with this superb theme!

    I will post more as I use the theme today

    To elaborate on "Missing portrait/landscape wallpaper compatibility"

    In TB6 Beta 2 there's an option to enable landscape home screen which allows user defined wallpaper on both portrait and landscape

    Progress Update

    Fixed issues:

    Wifi symbol pops up beneath 3g as well as in top left corner

    Non-theme notification icons are pix-elated due to the size increase of the notification area

    When tapping on clock, blue focus area seems out of place, maybe change to transparent? Same thing happens with the manage connections hotspot for the service indicator numbers on the right hand side

    When in landscape, green focus area is not centered under icons

    In portrait mode the alarm indicator is really close to the clock whereas in landscape its always further away

    Not the biggest fan of the font used... especially when it differs from font in first user defined icon slot

    In landscape, the user defined icon slot ie weather is outside the gray box area, by the slightest amount, as compared to portrait

    Missing portrait/landscape wallpaper compatibility (enable landscape homescreen) - TB6 Beta 1 Restriction

    Outstanding issues:

    Blackberry "dots" are a little pix-elated

    When on main app screen, apps with 2 lines of text are difficult to read due to background darkened background

    Wifi icon and banner areas could stand to be reduced in size

    Possibly add SVG hidden hotspot for messages in banner

    Not the biggest fan of the font used... especially when it differs from font in first user defined icon slot its a pain to try to use a custom font in that spot.... the font is plain arial in slot one. That would seem very plain for the rest of the theme.

    In landscape, the user defined icon slot ie weather is outside the gray box area, by the slightest amount, as compared to portrait

    Missing portrait/landscape wallpaper compatibility (enable landscape homescreen) - TB6 Beta 1 Restriction

    Outstanding issues:

    Blackberry "dots" are a little pix-elated Not sure there is a way for me to change this???

    When on main app screen, apps with 2 lines of text are difficult to read due to background darkened background suggestions? if i move the dock up,, it will no longer look like the apps are "on" the dock... I will play some more.

    Wifi icon and banner areas could stand to be reduced in size i did reduce the main banner.... too small and it takes away from the look

    Possibly add SVG hidden hotspot for messages in banner sure thing

    The "arrows" indicating the Hotspots for scrolling dock are a little close to dock. Even though the hotspot is in the area above the arrow I find myself accidentally selecting a dock icon instead of the arrowit was moved up. I dont want to go too high or you dont have enough room for BeWeather wallpaper weather....- changed dock color for app screen.

    Any way to make the gray areas ie the banner area and user defined slot semi transparent? Yes.. but not the look i was intending.

    Issues with incoming call screen font (original font still)


    its hard to change this much from the original design - as when I release I till have to note specifically for torch or change the storm version to match.

    No worries! I just wanted to be as thorough as possible to make Boxed the best it can be! You have to stick to what makes the theme yours or else its not Boxed. Thanks for all the time and work committed thus far!
