HTC Theme of the week: Green Arrow 1.0

HTC Theme of the week: Green Arrow 1.0

This week’s theme hits the bullseye! Green Arrow 1.0 is a well built theme that hits everything on my list: multiple wallpapers, impressive icons, weather icons, fancy clock, color scheme, soft keys, and sounds! And I’m a fan of the Arrow character as well so there’s bonus points to the theme maker in my book.

While browsing the gallery for a superhero theme I was a bit limited using the search box, maybe my keywords were too vague, because Ironman, Batman, and Superman didn’t return any rewarding results. I was lucky enough to land on the Green Arrow 1.0 theme and I quickly fell in love with pointy icons and color scheme. There’s a handful of fully custom icons and the rest of your installed app get a similar overlay that resembles an arrowhead. The mixture of wallpapers on the homescreen, lockscreen, and app drawer with pleasing visual effects. And then the sounds hit me like hearing a popular new song for the first time; I dug it! There’s a custom ringtone, alarm, and notification sound included with this theme.

Green Arrow 2One minor side effect of those cool arrow-like icons was that it made it a little hard to recognize some of my uncommon apps and I had to slow down a little to read app labels before tapping. Not a big deal just something in my routine I had to adjust. And on a comical note, I misplaced my phone the day I changed to this theme. When I called it from another phone my search party didn’t recognize the ringtone and it took several calls before we finally pulled it from its hiding spot.

The Green Arrow 1.0 theme was built by Albert V.S., published to the gallery on July 15th, and has been downloaded approximately 13,686 times as of today. Albert has three superhero themes with three custom icon packs, each with remarkable details. I will give this theme 5 stars in the HTC Theme app, because I feel that the designer did a great job and really used all the features of the online Themer Pro tool.
