6. Colors! Colors! Colors!

They have employed the colors to their best. From variation of categories according to colors to the skin manager, this theme
seems very colorful. So apart from blogs, you can use themes for Websites too…

7. Advertisement Ready

This was the thing that attracted me most in this theme. Most websites which have flat design, will lack the most important thing – Right Placement of Advertisements. But this theme offers various Advertisement Spots

i) Top of the website
ii) In widgets
iii) In between 2 categories in Home Page
iv) In between posts

8. Buttons with Icons

This is unique in this theme. Though it is not a big deal, they provide a variety of button integrated as shortcodes.

2. Different Social Media icons – Looks good in the placement and in the top.
3. Some extra widgets – Carousel of posts,Categories with number of posts, Weather forecast (I hate this one 🙂 )
4. Iconic Classification between types of posts
5. Well documented
6. High Resolution Theme

Somethings this Theme Lacks

No wordpress theme can be stated incomplete, still some themes will lack satisfaction, because while browsing the theme we will feel, they might have included some features.

1. Not for Pure e-commerce Websites

What i feel is, this theme is too modern, to be a e-commerce website design. I might be wrong but, still i am not getting back what i said.Though they have integrated with Woocommerce Plugin, there is no proper design for the displaying of products

2. Shortcodes – Too Less

They provide only shortcodes which are too common. While modern themes provide pages and pages of shortcodes like Images, Lightbox Images, Social Media Shares, Boxes etc..

3. No Unique Social Media Widgets / Shortcodes

Except the icons present in the top and at the bottom of the post, they have not concentrated much in social media. That’s little weird. Social media is becoming new form of SEO, with link building murdered by Google Humming Bird update.

4. Lots of Bugs – Resolved Now

In first day of release, they received a lot of bugs, bugs, bugs… Though they are updating them.. Following are some of the bugs

1. Light Box Image Out of button
2. Problem with shortcodes

Final Judgement :

So my final judgement, this theme is best for New Review Blogs, Membership websites and editorial blogs, who upload a lot of photos and videos. Also suitable for blogs of corporate companies. If you need lot of social media activity or looking theme for e-Commerce website, i suggest you to go through other themes before deciding on this.
