Avatar “Neytiri’ Theme from Airborne Mobile

May 9th, 2010

Avatar-1 Everyone knows the movie for its stunning visual graphics and the images alone on this theme are certainly very nice…but overall I’m not impressed. Firstly, the theme lagged for me. Secondly, the nice wallpapers have trademark/copyright information stamped at the bottom. I’m sure the theme designer had their reasons but ‘eh’ it’s kinda of annoying. Also, the icons, unopened message icons, dialog buttons, battery/signal meters…even the little ‘ring’ notifiers, while nice, are not original because I’ve seen the exact same ones used by another theme developer. With a theme of this caliber (and price) why not be original? All in all, it’s not an awful theme but if it wasn’t for the attractive wallpapers, and the fact that the person using it would have to be a die hard Avatar fan, I don’t think it’s worth $5.99. Remember though, this is just my opinion.  I realize the theme developer probably had to pay for license rights but in that case, and for that price, give us a great theme…not a so-so one. For those of you still willing to take the plunge, you can buy Avatar theme at our Berryreview Store. There’s also a ‘Jake’ version available as well. Available for a variety of BlackBerry devices.

BIS Two-Way Sync for Gmail Finally Live?!!

May 3rd, 2010

bis3_0nao Over the weekend we had tons of reports that two-way Gmail sync on BIS was finally alive and kicking. The feature should allow for synching of both read/unread messages, as well showing sent messages on your device that were composed in the Gmail web app. While it doesn’t seem to be working for everyone (myself included), it looks like a ton of users are up and running. I did manage to get my sent messages to sync up, however anything beyond that is a no go on my end. So we want to know if its working for you. Leave a comment and let us know (yay or nay) and be sure to include your device/carrier information as well. We’ll keep you updated as we find out more. Thanks to everyone that sent this in!
