CyanogenMod is the most downloaded custom ROM for Android. There are many reasons why it is so popular. The ROM’s support for themes is one of its most beloved features. The CyanogenMod themes can be confused with launchers. They are system-wide and update all elements of the interface. Although there are many CyanogenMod themes, it can be difficult to choose the best from the rest. Not all themes are compatible with the latest CM13 release (based upon Android 6.0 Marshmallow). Don’t worry, we did all the research and testing. Here are the top 15 CM13 themes:
These themes will work with custom ROMs with Cyanogen’s CM 12 or 13 theme engines. For the best performance, reboot your device after installing a theme.
1. Dark Material
Dark Material is one of the most loved dark themes for CM13. Now, with another favorite dark theme “Blacked Out”, it’s even better. This theme adds a dark, minimalist look to CM. The icons are a delight! It also adds overlays for most third-party apps to create a uniform look across the OS. Although it isn’t necessarily black, we like the grey/black infusion throughout the interface. You can download its Regression+ version if you prefer the native icons of Android.
2. Material Glass
Material Glass is for you if transparent interface elements appeal to you. Material Glass theme ensures that everything is transparent so you can see the wallpaper on every interface and app. You can choose any wallpaper that you want and it will be part of every page within the OS.
3. Swift Dark
Swift Dark, a popular theme that is arguably the most popular for CM13 and the best dark theme in CM13, brings a cleaner Black look to the UI. It also brings together a lovely balance between the OS’s black and colorful elements, making for an attractive interface. It themes the majority of the most popular apps and is regularly updated to support new ones.
