Theme Market–Blue and Gingerbread keyboard for Android
A few weeks ago, we wrote about a new Android theme for changing the green color of the Market on your device to red. This time, XDA member pendo brings us a blue version theme that will give your device a fresh look.
Also, the developer presents a full QWERTY keyboard – Gingerbread styled. This will work only on NON-Sense ROMs. However, the market theme will work on any Android device 2.0 and above.
Please leave some feedback!.

[THEME] New Market–Blue v2.2.7
Hello fellow XDA’ers,
I have themed the new market a little, the primary goal was to change from the green to a blueish theme. I’ve actually had this for a little while, but only posted it in my super circle thread. It was suggested that I start a new thread for it, as there may be some interested, that don’t frequent the battery thread. Just about every image has been replaced.
I had forgotten about this, but a post reminded me…I also have a *very* lightly edited gingerbread keyboard. Everything’s working (at least for me and the others who’ve tried it) as far as dictionary, et all. The main difference is that I’ve gotten rid of as much orange as I could and replaced with blue.
Continue to the theme and keyboard thread.

Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
