Ed. note: This theme requires use of the Theme Chooser.
With the temperature rapidly dropping round these parts, I figured a new theme to match the cold would work out real nice. I've been absolutely wowed by these Sonny Sekhon themes lately, so I settled on the appropriately-named Arctic Green to set the mood for the impending cold.
I know what you're probably thinking. Arctic Green? Shouldn't something arctic be blue? Or white? Maybe, but if you liken it to say, that spearmint green color/flavor toothpaste comes in, the idea settles in a bit quicker.
In typical Sonny Sekhon style, Arctic Green takes your status bar icons and turns them a cool green. The remaining battery is still inside the little battery icon by default, which is typical if you've used one of his themes before.
The pulldown notification bar uses the same widget icons as all of his other themes, but, in a change of pace, the text isn't the same color as the main theme. Your carrier name and 'no notifications' alert are in silver, and notifications are a dark silverish grey with black text. It's not the easiest thing to read and if I had my druthers, the notification text color would be something lighter so it's more easily read, but that's just me.
The notification pulldown is still transparent, accented with a faux-metal bar at the bottom, complete with a stylish, rectanglular cutout in the middle.
The dialer has a transparent background, but the accent color is the same dark grey we saw previously, not the green for which the theme was named. Icons are themed in the same vein: a dark, metallic grey, not a bright, toothpastey green.
There is an icon theme pack that turns your icons bright green, so I'm a little confused why that isn't baked right into this theme from the start.
As a matter of fact, outside of the notification bar and some widgets, Arctic Green defaults to the dark greys over bright green. Toast notifications are dark, but the highlight color and check boxes are green. It's a little strange seeing fragmentation (or is it legacy?) within a theme, but that's why there's an icon pack, I reckon.
Arctic Green is $1.02 in the Android Market.
