‘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.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles.
