Tangerine

My love affair with theming my CM7 install has taken a turn for the orange, or tangerine, in this case. MellowYellow served me well, but something about orange has just been piquing my interest as of late, so I sped off into the Android Market, looking for something that would suffice. After some unfocused digital sleuthing, I finally came across this excellent theme by Sonny Sekhon: Tangerine.

Tangerine takes all of the status bar icons and turns them orange. It also puts the battery percentage inside the battery icon by default, so if you're running the option where you have the percentage next to a vertical bar, you can go ahead and disable that.

The pulldown notification bar has also been themed, with unique icons taking the place of the standard widget button icons. The pulldown bar itself is transparent with an orange arrow at the bottom. To top it off, all your actual notifications are on a metallic silver background.

The dialer is pretty stock, with just a hint of transparency to it. There's also some nice icon theming that takes place, like most of the stock Google apps, for starters. Messaging has been rendered completely orange, for one, and Gmail's iconic "M" follows suit nicely.

Where Tangerine really pulls ahead in terms of theming is its detail in regards to things like buttons, check boxes, highlighting fields, and toast notifications. I know those all sound like really minor things and they kind of are (how many toast notifications do you get in a day, really?), but when you look at the sum of the parts, you'll come to realize just how much orange is peppered throughout this theme.

Overall, Tangerine is awesome. It only costs a dollar and has totally transformed my look from the yellow idea I had previously. It's fresh and very cool and definitely adds a bit of kick to your phone in a color most people wouldn't expect to see.

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

Too candyland for my tastes...but I can appreciate the talent and hard work that was put into it

This is gorgeous! I would buy it just for that orange clock. That is fantastic. I've never paid for a theme as of yet but this one looks like it's definitely worth the $1 price tag. Thanks for showing it to us!

Do those icons come with tangerine, or is it a separate icon pack? If it's included in the theme, I'd almost buy it just for the MIUI polish that those icons provide

Joshua Munoz says:

That's a different icon pack. Free and donate versions available. Called MIUI pack or something.

When various events are triggered, you get a little popup message at the bottom of your screen - A toast notification. These events include apps being granted Superuser permission, screenshots being saved, Tasker/Impel scheduled events, etc.
