Sunday, 10 January 2010 18:00

Written by Apocalypso.

alfat_tm

Certainly, I think most of you would agree with me that PiZero is one of the best Theme designers for the Symbian based handsets and I just can't tell you how excited I am to see that he is already experimenting with Maemo Theme Maker and that his first Maemo 5 is going to be available soon!

His themes are sharp and uncluttered and it’s real pleasure to work with. I use PiZero’s themes on several S60 devices and I found them very user-friendly and not junked up with a lot of unnecessary elements.

Alfa  by PiZero is still under construction and isn't available yet but this green toned theme of spring with beautiful wallpaper of tall grass in Vi... .. .
