    Arete brings you efficiency, simplicity, functionality, and customization.
    Customize your home-screen with seven different colors. Any wallpaper will
    go well with Arete I guarantee!



    *Theme requires reset after installation*

    I like this theme.
    Will it ever support landscape and trackpad? Or is this going to be the only version released?

    There will be trackpad navigation in an update but landscape takes away from some of the features used in portrait so on some of my themes i don't do landscape i know some people hate it but yall would hate it more if some of the features couldn't be there.... But yes trackpad navigation is coming soon just gotta rebuild it...

    What features would have been missed if you added trackpad navigation and/or landscape >?

    This is not a bad looking theme but it bares a huge resemblance to BBT's Slate theme. (And your Optique theme looks just like BBT's Tint theme.) :

    TDM.. I am not one to get into this sort of thing but this is getting out of hand. I contacted you about your Optique theme, and you explained you didn't realize. That's fine, one is a coincidence. But your next theme coming out and looking like another of my themes?

    I don't know what can be done about this but I would request others at least check out my Slate theme here:
    Bbt's SLATE | Fast, functional and flexible | OS6 devices updated! - Themes BlackBerry Software

    Thanks to anyone who understands my concern.

    So your telling me because my theme has a side dock it resembles your theme? Cmon I think of my ideas on my own and always have. It has a color picker that's the only resemblance and if I'm not mistaken anybody can do that. So please bbt don't trash my threads and say stuff like that. I work hard on my themes like everyone else.

    I am not trashing. And it's not that it "just has a side dock".

    It has the same today area. The dock hides the same way, EVERYTHING is in the same place. And like I said, if this was the first one that resembled one of my themes I would have no problem. But it's not. And other people are noticing. I didn't come here on my own. I was referred to it by other people.

    There is clearly more of a resemblance than coincidence. But that's all that needs to be said. People can make up their own mind whether they want to purchase. I feel it's necessary to bring it to attention. There are a lot of possibilities in themeing, you can't tell me it's coincidence.

    I don't want to continue this here, if you want to talk about it further feel free to do it in our Builder group or through BBM.

    I have "no axe to grind" but the Arete theme seems to be almost a carbon copy of the Slate theme:



    They both have banner color options, both have hideable weather, both have hidden today and almost everything in the Arete theme mimicks the Slate theme.
    The only difference I see is that the Slate theme supports landscape and trackpad while the Arete theme does not.

    Similar? I'll give you that .. EXACT? youre trippin..

    Both have stock meters - gps - ect ..

    Placement of date, gps, ect are all diff - except battery

    ocd slot is on other side of banner -- and TDMs has text for it over time .. other doesnt

    Date is in diff location, icons are diff..

    Argument for Hidden Today is stupid .. almost all themes follow that format

    Side dock? Neither are the first nor last to use one ..

    Get off it - Get over it -- Move on

    I personally couldn't care less if TDM copied BBT, but the similarities of TDM's themes to BBT's themes are pretty obvious.
    Also check out BBT's Tint VS TDM's Optique. It's obviously another copy, but there's probably no law that you can't copy another theme and try to sell it.

    I just thought I would point it out for all to make their own judgement.

    Theres way too much stock items in both for anyone to be crying .. theres a hundred themes that look like the other.. i hate this whining .. If this was some "cutting edge" coding going on here - maybe I would see the point .. but cmon == they are both just really clean, professional themes.

    Like I said - similar - yep. Exact - only if you're blind and partially brain dead.

    Like some highschool fight over who painted what letter on the homecoming banner ..
