Re: Looking Ahead: Theme Studio for OS7 and QNX

Themes aren't just a way to aesthetically personalize your device.

In my case I have to create themes that will allow me to see the screen.

RIM does very little to support users with visual impairments other than allowing us to use bigger fonts on some screens.

They don't even do that with the Playbook.

So, now I can't even upgrade to an OS 7 or, by the looks of it, an OS10 device.

Apple, on the other hand, has very good support.  Even Microsoft is ahead of RIM in that respect. 

 

I am not an Apple fan but my phone is a necessary work tool so I have to buy what I need.

Re: Looking Ahead: Theme Studio for OS7 and QNX

Agreed!  I still am hanging on to 9930 as the battery life in iPhone and Android devices don't cut it for me.

My savior has been Fancy Widgets. Seriously would dump the 9930 right now if it weren't for Fancy Widgets.

Unfortunately, I can't. Not trying to be rude, but like I said it was given to us.

So what was the point of distributing it then?  Just wondering.

Re: Looking Ahead: Theme Studio for OS7 and QNX

All plans for BlackBerry Theme Studio 7 have been cancelled due to the fact that feedback from beta testers was not good and it was clear that the quality of the tooling would not be acceptable. In addition to that, confirmation was also handed out for those looking to theme BlackBerry 10.

Re: Looking Ahead: Theme Studio for OS7 and QNX

Thanks for the info. This is the final insult. I have waited since Aug 2011 for TB7 and some good Today themes. This is it. Blackberry is no longer the business mobile device of choice. What else does RIM have going for them?
