This design pattern is part of the Mobile Design Patterns series.



A theme in mobile which contains information about clock wallpaper and environment related news e.g. temperature of city. It also contains updated date and time. And the information related to mobile like battery percentage of mobile and magnitude of signal strength of mobile. By buttons we can go directly to the application e.g. dial, calendar, back button and phone menu.



• Theme makes better look of mobile. • It gives basic information e.g. date and time very fast. • Some themes contains standard shortcut like sms, mp3. • Theme gives graphical look to the application. • By one click we can open required application in mobile.


• Every mobile theme does not contain the standard shortcut buttons.

Use when

We can use the theme when we need some graphical look to the application. When we need to open the application very fast.
