S60 Theme Effects

Recently I found out something that I have missed all these while, something that I have always seen in my previous Symbian phones but didn’t bother to explore… hahaha… it’s theme effects.

Tools > Settings > General > Personalisation > Themes > General > Options > Theme Effects.

Basically it does nothing more than adding animations to your menus, icons and screen rotation (depending on the theme that you are using).

Speaking of themes… here’s my current favourite theme.

It’s called Nighty Purple by Cuff. I like the dark background, the light purple selection background for icons.

You can download it for free if you like. Just click here.
