‘Livven Themes’ Receive Major Update
Livven‘s long-standing set of themes for transforming the underlying interface of Windows Mobile 6.5.x have recently been granted a considerable update.
Formerly known as the ‘SimpleGloss’ themes, Livven has changed the name of the set to represent the massive shift in user customisation – you can now choose how simple or glossy your taskbars will be, if at all, using the revised personalisation system. The themes are available in four different colours (black, blue, green and red) to ensure that you will find at least one which complements your phone’s unique identity.
Livven has also vastly improved the graphics used in the themes, such as the check- and tick boxes and the taskbars themselves, to make them look even better on high resolution devices such as the HD2. Find the themes in the original thread.
