Each theme is tested by different judges from different fields of mobile industry. We provide you an overview of these groups to better understand what BQC (Berryfication Quality Certificate) for theme means.
Structure and Navigation
Structure and navigation refers to the organization of content, the prioritization of information, and the method in which you move through the theme. Themes with good structure and navigation are consistent, intuitive and transparent. They allow you to form a mental model of the navigation provided, where to find things, and what to expect when you click.
Visual design is the appearance of the theme. It’s more than just a pretty wallpaper and it doesn’t have to be cutting edge or trendy. Good visual design is high quality, appropriate, and relevant for the audience and the message it is supporting. It communicates a visual experience and may even take your breath away.
Functionality is the use of technology in theme. Good functionality means the theme works well. It works quickly and any new technology used is functional and relevant for the audience. Highly functional themes anticipate the diversity of user requirements. The most functional themes also take into consideration those with lower level of BlackBerry Smartphone knowledge. Good functionality makes the experience center stage and the technology invisible.
Demonstrating that themes are frequently more — or less than the sum of their parts, the overall experience encompasses content, structure and navigation, visual design, and functionality, but it also includes the intangibles that make one awesome or everage.
