    N_I_X over at miui dev has released a miui theme browser app that lets you browse and download miui themes right now its pretty bare on what it has.

    you can download the theme browser here http://bit.ly/i0CPWq

    now for theme devs if you want your theme on the app you need to add it to the git-hub manifest you can do that by well first you need a github account then you can go here https://github.com/MIUI-Dev/ThemeManifest/blob/gh-pages/allthemes.json then click on the fork button which only works if you are logged in then click on all themes.json you can add your theme to the manifist this way after you click on allthemes.json you will need to click edit it will allow you to edit it there here is an example

    {

    "theme_name": "Watermelon",
    "theme_url": "http://downloads.miui-themes.com/Watermelon/xigua_V1.1.zip",
    "theme_author": "oTUo",
    "theme_preview_url": "http://downloads.miui-themes.com/Watermelon/Watermelon_thumbnail.jpg",
    "theme_size": "2230541",
    "theme_version": "1.1",
    "theme_screenshot_urls": [
    "http://downloads.miui-themes.com/Watermelon/1.jpg",
    "http://downloads.miui-themes.com/Watermelon/2.jpg",
    "http://downloads.miui-themes.com/Watermelon/3.jpg"
    ]

    }

    i pulled that directly off the manifest it shows the theme name url author preview size in bytes theme version and screenshots

    now i could just be talking nonsense lol i have never used github before.

    nix will be laying down some rules for the theme browser app over at miui-dev and will require all themers that want there themes on the app to have a thread for there theme over at miui dev and to keep there theme on the app updated with what they have on their thread.

    nix will be making a thread discusing the rules as well as a tutorial about the theme browser app in a few days so it would probably be best to keep an eye out for it as he knows better than i do.
