Lucid

Ed. note: This theme requires use of the Theme Chooser.

If you're looking for the antithesis of Frost, you'll find it in Lucid. Dark, dramatic, and definitely easy on the battery, Lucid has won me over in the dark themes category and Sonny Sekhon has definitely shown off that he's no slouch at making CM7 themes.

Take everything I've said about Frost and Tangerine, and just make it black. The notification pulldown bar is back to being black. The transparency is there and the bottom of the pulldown is black with a little white arrow. The widget icons are white (naturally, so you can see them), and the battery percent is still inside the battery.

The dialer is transparent black, just like the other themes made by this developer. The accent colors for the frames is actually the same silver as Frost. The only difference here is that Lucid opts for black instead of silver.

Icons and widgets are the same greyish silver from Frost, too. Give your app drawer a look, there's plenty to see. It matches the theme really well, and while it may initially seem like a bummer that the icons are the same as Frost, monochrome looks so good with black you won't even mind the next time you look.

The toast notifications, buttons, highlight color, and checks are also the same dark grey/silver color, but it looks awesome. I guess that means we could argue Lucid is just Frost with a black bar, but don't. The theme looks good and it's functional, so let it be.

If you're looking for a theme with a bit darker vibe, Lucid is it. It's clean, look great, and shouldn't be too hard on the battery. Like it's other friends from the same dev, it's all yours for only $1.

We've got download links and more pictures after the break.

Android Theme Review: Lucid

*Sigh*

this is what I miss the most about my Incredible on CM7... My Bionic is great, but I miss themeing and changing the appearance of my UI.

Josh, let me be the first to tell you great job on the Editorial Note :-) Thank you for making the change.
