Re: Tour Today Screen

Hi there!


Unless I am mistaken, Themes are 3rd party add-ons...not RIM-provided. As such, you might want to seek out the developer of your favorite Today theme and ask them if they are going to have one for the Tour...


Good luck!

Re: Tour Today Screen

Previous iterations of BlackBerry devices (Curve 8330) came preloaded with multiple themes. There is the operator's custom theme (Sprint or Verizon), and the themes provided by RIM, including a Today screen. It would seem that the Tour did not come shipped with any preloaded Themes besides the operators own theme. Theme developers are also currently unable to create themes for the 9630 due to a limitation with the Plazmic Theme Builder program. It would seem that all of us Today screen fans will be waiting until Plazmic releases an updated version of their Theme Builder.

Re: Tour Today Screen

I am so glad I am not the only one missing the TODAY theme screen.  I CANNOT believe BB didn't have that as an option pre-loaded on the Tour Software. I LOVE my BB TOUR, but I really, really liked the TODAY theme on my Curve.  If anybody knows any info about when a TODAY theme may come available for the BB TOUR, please reply to this post and let me know.  Thanks so much!

Re: Tour Today Screen

Hi guys! I am new to the whole BB experience being that my BBTour is my first BB device and I love it!!  But now to the matter at hand; to the poster: Plazmic has released its update to the developing kit version 4.7. This update will let you create themes for new devices like Storm and Tour, (or so the web site says), once you download an update for the developer kit. Here's the link to the page where the software and the update are located.  Hope I can be of help!
