Theme Thursday – SpaceBound

Theme Thursday – SpaceBound

May 19, 2011

Prepare the hyperdrive and get ready to touch the stars! This week’s theme is SpaceBound, and I am really digging it.

SpaceBound is another theme by ADDesigns, the same people who created BlackGold, a theme I featured last week. I really admire the work they do and the daring risks they seem to be willing to take. SpaceBound is a great example of that. It’s so crazy and different that it really grabs your attention.

Like all of the themes featured on Theme Thursday, SpaceBound is a theme for ADW Launcher, a highly-customizable home replacement for Android. Using ADW Launcher, you can quickly install any of the themes featured here on Android Rundown and our “Theme Thursday” feature and switch between them with just a few button presses.

SpaceBound features 7 amazing wallpapers splashed with bright colors that seem to clash with everything, yet complement each other in such a way that they become uniform. It’s a psychedelic look at the planets, and beyond. In addition to the wallpapers, you get over 300 custom app icons and more than 150 extra icons for use with ADW’s shortcuts.

As you can see from the screen shots below, the orange icons all share a circular shape to go along with the wallpapers. Of course, while it does a great job of pulling the theme together and keeping a consistent look, it might get a little confusing as to which icon is which unless you pay closer attention to the image or choose to turn labels on.

If you like the look of SpaceBound as much as I do, the theme costs US$1.49 and is available to purchase right through the Android Market. Also, note that the clock in the screen shots is a free widget called SiMi, which is also available in the Android Market.
