Glass GDE Theme, One of the Best looking Theme’s – Android App Review

June 9, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

App Name: Glass Theme for GDE by SilentDesigns

Price: $0.99

Description: Let your wallpaper show through with this theme for GDE. Looks great with ANY wallpaper, 5 included. New GDE theme format with themed clock, appdock, & conversation widgets & icons.

How it works: This is a theme for GDE. This theme applies a clear/transparent look to icons, dock, and dock widget. Comes packed with 5 different wallpapers. To use this simply open your Appearance settings and on Theme select from the list (after you’ve installed it, of course!) This theme supports HD and MD screen resolutions.

Opinion: I liked the way this skin looked. It gives to each icon an almost transparent border that makes icons look nicer (as if trapped in a square bubble.) The Analog Clock that comes with the theme looks nice too, and so does the Search Bar skin. I really didn’t like the huge plus sign at the right of the dock. I don’t know, maybe I’m not much into round stuff, looks like an old Nintendo D-pad to me.

Ratings :

  • Speed (5/5) –  Well this is a theme that runs smooth on top of GDE. This shouldn’t affect your phone performance.
  • Features 5/5) –  Comes well packed with its 5 wallpapers and custom icons.
  • Theme (5/5) – Does what it says and looks very nice.
  • Overall (5/5) -Without a doubt one of the best looking themes out there.

Pro: Looks nice. Custom Icons. 5 custom wallpapers. Transparent effect.

Cons: At 2.1 Mbs. This is kind of a big theme. I guess this is probably related to the HD icons and wallpapers but still. It’s big for old/unrooted Android devices with limited storage space.

Conclusion: If you are looking for a custom theme this one is a good choice. These days I’ve seen lots of themes that don’t have custom icons (not even a border like these ones.) Also, the dev gave us 5 wallpapers, that’s nice since most themes only include one wallpaper.
