HTC theme of the week: Rumor of hope or that time I got lost in the woods
This week’s theme has quite a title! The Rumor of hope or that time I got lost in the woods theme adds an earthy feel to your phone with green tones and wood grained textures throughout the theme. For this review, I was able to test drive the theme on a Desire 626 with HTC Sense 7.0 so I got to see the full functionality of the theme. From the HTC keyboard to the soft keys on the bottom of the screen.
While trying to mix this column up by reviewing themes from different categories I couldn’t help that this theme and the previous theme have a lot of green blended into the them.
This week’s theme adds a round, wood grained stump behind the majority of the apps and has the least amount of custom app icons in themes I’ve covered. I like that there are different wallpapers for each screen and the call screen adds wood grain to the silhouette. The HTC clock has more wood grain over the weather icons and I like the design of the soft keys; the home button reminds me of a straw hut or a stick home.
Rumor of hope comes with three sounds; a ringtone, notification, and alarm. Combined with the low end speaker in the 626 and soft tone it was difficult to hear my phone when it was ringing. This theme had a bonus for me. It even downloaded a custom text that applied where ever there is text on my phone.
I was really please with the Rumor of hope or that time I got lost in the woods theme. My only critique would be the quiet sounds, but everything else had what I look for when browsing themes in the gallery. I’d give this theme 4.5 stars, but I don’t think the app allows half stars so my review will be 5 stars. Especially considering the full scope of a theme was covered by the designer.
This theme was created by Justin Patrick earlier this month and has been downloaded approximately 5600 times as of today. Justin has 20 themes in the gallery so you might want to follow him to keep up with new creations since he’s demonstrated he has a good grasp of designing themes for the masses.
As mentioned above, this theme was created by another user of the HTC Theme app. I’m simply reviewing the theme and sharing it with you in an effort to encourage others to keep your phone feeling fresh and custom.
