Built By Request
 
Yes, it's been awhile... again... BUT! We're back with Great News and Better Themes.

All of us here at Built By Request have been quite busy. So busy in fact, we've had to actually take everything and place it on the back burner. Last update we saw Ignite being released. Then all of a sudden, AlucardFair came in, posted it for more devices and we didn't officially update. Not saying it was all bad, Ignite was a HAWT Theme! and everyone proved it to be so with over 16,000 downloads in one day! (Yeah, I even had to get in on that one).

With More news coming, I saw some screens of themes everyone has been working on. These are some amazing themes. Unfortunately, the one I really want is being pushed back from this release...

*sigh*

But, before we continue onto our theme releasing. Lets take a look at one of our newest Testers. Yes, we got another one and he's been really giving us a hand. From ideas, feedback and resting. Yes, resting. He's quite well known in the Theme Development Community. With great insight of how themes should look, feel and function, we're glad to welcome him aboard to Built By Request and the Full BBR Family!

BigDogBo. That. Is. All.
Well, actually its not! Bo is our newest tester. Giving us a great hand with Themes for the Storm 2 (9550). We all have welcomed the Big Dog with open arms (yes we love our family) and are very fortunate to have him work with us. Besides, waht theme junkie would say no?! Free themes just for being apart of our family (putting up with some of our insanity) and giving into Device Torture. and Now from me, Live on the Net, Welcome to Built By Request Bo! Glad to have ya.

Read what BigDogBo is all about in HERE.

Now onto the themes... Can they really be all that good? Correctly answered. Yes, yes they are. That being said, we've all slowed down, going from quantity releases to quality releases. Can Built By Request get any better? Again, yes they have and are continuing to only bring quality out to all of the BBR Users. With so many Upcoming Theme Developers, everyone has decided to not only get better, but become more focused (Hence why themes are being pushed back).

AlucardFair knows there is no love for Storm Users (at least not as much as other devices). Well, with thanks to BigDogBo,he's giving Storm Users a Theme of their own! I introduce to you, BANdroid: A Real Android Experience. An Android Based Theme gives you Animated Today Screens, Sliding in from the left will give you Your messages and in from the right will give you your calendar. Quick Menu Access sets you up with 6 Static Icons for your Alarm, BBM, Browser, Calendar, Messages and Music. User Selected Dock, Fonts and wallpaper friendly. A Search Bar displays Owner name, weather slot (1st), date, Functional Search and Voicenotes Recorder Icons. Well, stop reading about it already and grab yourself a copy. Respectively Priced at just $1.99!

Also, based on a request (how he got one is amazing), but Alu has released Purple for the 81xx. Giving all the Stock Icons a Color Rendering and giving the homescreen a hideable dock. Make sure that if you love purple and have a Pearl 81xx, pick up Purple HERE.

SunShine has been rocking the theme request and has fulfilled quite a bit of them. Lets take a look at what she's got for us today.

Heartagram - A Theme for all of the HIM or Bam Margera Fans. This theme is great on colors and a custom icon set. Make sure that if your a fan of HIM, Bam Margera or a just a Theme Junkie, grab Heartagram for the 83xx now!

Hearts (Black and Hot Pink) is a request for the 89xx (OS 5.0). Using Walls that the User wanted. SunShine made this theme a blast! With a Double Banner and a Dock of Mini Icons that can be hidden with Key Presses, you can't beat the creativity and layout of this great theme. Pick it up for the 89xx (OS 5.0) or one of the ported versions for the 96xx (OS 4.7.1), 96xx (OS 5.0) or the 9700.

Horses another request was fulfilled for the 83xx with this great animated theme. With Automatic changing wallpapers, you'll never get tired of this theme with the wallpapers changing about every 10 seconds.

P90X is a great request that is fulfilled for the 96xx. With Silver and Black Colors and a clean and crisp display, you almost wanna pick it up and start exercising, the P90X way! Make sure to grab this theme for the 96xx (OS 4.7.1), 96xx (OS 5.0) or the 9700.

Yellow World: an Urban Look and Graffiti Styled walls, this is for the urbanists. This request was fulfilled for the 96xx and successfully ported for the 9700. If you love the urban culture and lots of yellow, pick this one up now. 96xx (OS 4.7.1), 96xx (OS 5.0) or the 9700.

As everyone has noticed, AlucardFair has been hard at work (& still is). Well today, we are helping BlackBerrySync Celebrate their 3rd Birthday by unveiling an exclusive Built By Request Theme...

This theme emulates the look and feel of BBSync and gives an added bonus of QL Shortcuts, Optomized User-Selected Weather Slot that also displays on the Lockscreen. 8 Hidden banner shortcuts are also placed discretely behind the look of the website. It looks as if this theme serves a great purpose for all who love BlackBerrySync and functionality of a theme, you may never leave your homescreen again (I know I don't).

BBSync 1.3 is available for the following Model and OS; 85xx/5.0, 89xx/5.0, 9000/5.0, 9630/4.7.1 & 5.0 and the 9700.

We've posted several great themes today and they're all requests! AlucardFair, Kratos101, GR4FF1T1 & SunShine have been working like crazy this month to get a lot of the requests done. So sit back and relax, we've got a lot to cover for this update (go ahead and grab something to drink before you continue, lol)

We'll first star off with our staff updates and disappointments. We've sadly lost Ducky and I'm sure our regulars have noticed his themes have gone missing. We hope for his return, but don't hold your breath(or count chickens). But on great news, we have gained a new tester (and posssibly soon developer), Kev! He's really been helping out with the 95xx Themes (none released this time around) and is getting all of the devs motivated and ready for more. He's also been helping out with testing for the 83xx Series also, so we've gained a great asset to the staff!

Now on to our releases. Just like we did for SunShine when she came on, We'll give you a list and a page link to ease the strain of seeking out each theme.

AlucardFair has released a great deal of request (cause that's all we're releasing today)!

With all these great themes released today and still more to come. We have more announcements, some may be a disappointment, but hopefully not too much.

AlucardFair does have some 95xx themes in the works(yes they are requests). He's not sure when exactly they will be released, he's been working with Kev to get them close to perfect. I've even heard of another iClone theme(specifically for the 95xx/OS 5.0) that is a User-Interactive Theme that has a Sliding Wallpaper Feature and a Sliding Screen of Icons(16 on each page)! Lets try to convince him to release it as Beta for all of us, cause I really wanna see it in action! (Leave your comments and beg if you Have to)

Now the bad news is that, AlucardFair is not ready to come back to taking request.... He's working on a major project for a website(he won't say). But says in about 2 weeks there will be a big celebration! I'm actually curious on what it is, cause we all usually know what he's up to.

That's it for now,
Ciao
(& don't forget to beg for the iClone theme, lol
 
 
Okay, so most of you already know that Kratos101 was out. He has returned. You also know that we were in the process of bringing in a new Developer. Well, she has arrived. With several themes and the Sun rising high. We'd like to Welcome SunShine into the world of Developing. So, lets get to the releases.

AlucardFair has fulfilled a request for the ECU Pirates and made a nice theme for the 83xx.

Kratos101 is back and has released; Family Guy Blue Harvest, WoW Cataclysm and Monster all for the 83xx.

Ducky has released Harley Davidson for the 8350i.

GR4FF1T1 has released Abstract for the 8350i. Also he has released Green Tribal and Heroic Age for the 83xx.

SunShine has released a monstrocity of themes for the 83xx. So instead of linking every theme to a page, I'm gonna Give you links for each page.
Basic 1
Basic 2
Basic 3
User-Interactive
Acient Egyptian, Bible, Blue Utopia, Buddah, Dreamland, Emily Strange, Enchantresses, Essence, Firefly, Floret, Forest, Gray Skulls, Masquerade, Native American Men, Native American Women, Natural Fantasy, Neon Green Butterfly, Ong Bak, (Pink) Ed Hardy, (Pink) Geisha, (Purple) Ed Hardy, Retro Barbie, Rough Waters, Salvador Dali and Van Gogh for the Basic Themes. For the User-Interactive she released; Alice In Wonderland, Invader Zim and Red Roses.

So with Kratos101 being Officially back, he's taking requests again. With SunShine coming aboard fulltime, she will start taking requests for themes. AlucardFair is taking a small break to finish up some requests and start more side projects (but has assured us, he will be coming back to taking requests).

With all this coming out and still alot in testing, we're hoping to release very soon with more to fit your personality.

Ciao
 
 
Hey everyone, AlucardFair here. We hasd some clean up today on the site. We needed to remove lots of dead pages and removed some not so hot pages.

Also, there was an inconvenience for the 82xx Users who wanted the Neon Skulls theme. For some odd reason, our OTA link was incorrect. All is well and fixed.

We also added some sites to our "Friends of Mine" page. Make sure to take a look and visit them if you haven't already been.

Also! We've updated our newest Testers Profile, Garry. Head over to the "Thanks to the Testers" Page and take a look.
Thanks for everyone's support!
 
 
That's right, we've got alot coming out! (And even more to come shhh...). Let's dive Right in and see what's going down.

AlucardFair has released John Deere (HER), the Golden Girls and Mossy Oak (UI) for the 83xx. Neon Skulls (UI) for the 82xx. Glock 27 (UI) for the 89xx. Vincent Valentine (UI) for the 90xx. Mickey and Minnie Mouse (UI) for the 85xx and successfully ported to the 8350i and Naruto Shippuden for the 81xx.

Kratos101 is still out for personal business, but has informed us, he is still working on themes and learning new stuff. Hopefully everything stays okay for him and he will return to us with a great amount of themes for our users.

Ducky has been on the up and up by releasing Ohio State for the 83xx. Ghost Rider and WRX for the 89xx. He also released a nice Tribal theme for the 8350i.

GR4FF1T1 is working on themes and they're currently in testing. He's been working on new stuff and expanding from Anime to his own artwork(which looks awesome).

With all this said and not quite done. AlucardFair is still working on more request and has even started trying to make a new project. He also spotted some great Talent for a new Theme Developer and signed HER on. That's right, we're taking on our first full time Female Theme Developer. Right now her work is currently in testing to make sure we're all set for her release, then will release her info and all of her Themes. Ducky has been taking on some serious requests and they should be out of testing soon, so lets keep him busy and request some more!
We're out for now, enjoy!
 
 
That's right, 2 days ago we released nicely. Well, today we're bringing out 4 more themes to you the users. Even a small release like this, you have some great themes and GR4FF1T1 delivered.

First AlucardFair fulfilled some requests for the 83xx. With one being basic and the other being user-interactive. The basic theme is Tennessee Titans and the user-interactive theme is Skulls.

GR4FF1T1 released DragonBall GT for the 83xx and has also released his first User-Interactive theme, Beck. So he definitely went out on a limb to learn that trick and was able to land on his feet!

That's it, short, simple and awesome to see such a leap from GR4FF1T1 to step in the realms of UI-Themes.
 
 
So we've all been waiting to find out what the crew here at Built By Request has been doing. Well now is the time to share the Love and that's all you need. RIM gave us the free download of "All You Need Is Love" by the Beatles and this release we're gonna give you some Love of our own.
 
AlucardFair really went to a new level with his theme building, Introducing us to "Stage Light" Icons in his arsenal of themes. With the ability to even hide the icons on select models. We're bringing out "Beatles" User-Interactive for the 83xx, 8350i, 85xx, 87xx, 88xx, 89xx, 9000, 9630 and 9700. AlucardFair even released, "All You Need Is Love" Ringtones in 3 different parts.

AlucardFair has released, along with the "Beatles", some great requests that got fulfilled. For the 83xx: Baby Phat (UI), Converse (UI), Indianpolis Colts (UI), Joker 2.0 (UI), Philidelphia Eagles (UI) and Vampire Hunter D (UI). Just for fun he built Monster (HER) for the 83xx.

Kratos101 is still out, but did let us know, he's still creating themes while not taking requests. Unfortunately, he was unable to submit his themes for this release. But we're looking to get them soon.

Ducky has fulfilled a request and created Ed Hardy (Pink) for the 83xx.

GR4FF1T1 has graced us again with another of his anime themes. I was surprised to see it, as I haven't seen this show in years and he did a great job putting it together. He has released DragonBall for the 83xx.

That's all for now. I've seen more themes going into testing, so hopefully we'll get more out soon! As we carry on today, remember all you need is love(and a good theme).
