    I have tested the Swift WordPress Theme and The Original Premium News theme and among these two i like Swift Theme the features are great.



    If we consider SEO then Swift is really better than Premium News theme.



    Thanks for sharing I have only used woothemes in these 5 themes.



    I was also using Swift theme, It’s a very flexible theme with awesome features.



    Arthemia is one of the best magazine style theme, anyway nice shares :)

    Burhanuddin Tezabwala

    These themes are quite elegant, simple and user-friendly.

    But this ‘Thrilling Theme’ just looks like other 2 or 3 column theme. I mean it is not giving a Magazine type feel; I may be wrong as I am new in all this. Still a good collection!


    Den Hung Travel

    I used 4 of 5 template. That is the theme is good SEO optimized and highly customizable. Thank you for sharing.

    Satish is excellent designer and his Swift theme is awesome. The control panel is too good. It was a great suprise when I found such a good wordpress theme for free.



    Don’t forget Justin Tadlock’s free magazine theme from DevPress. It’s just called “news” and is available from the WordPress theme repository or from devpress dot com.



    Great List. Thank you very much for sharing these free premium themes!



    Wonderful themes.. thanks for the share :)



    Me also using Swift Theme It Provide lot’s of feature’s which i am looking for :)



    I’m looking to buy Who’s Who Elegant Theme. Is it worthy to buy???


    rakesh kumar

    swift is better free theme but it needs a lots of customization and it also does not support IE 6 plus it does not pass CSS validation checks, When Installed on shared server it prepare a custom css file which is un-writable thus leads us a lots of problem. So before installing on a live site if any body wants to make changes then it does not support. specially color changes.



    great post, SWIFT theme is one of the best :)


    Vin DiCarlo

    Currently I am Using eleven40 themes by Studiopress. I have Modified my Theme CSS and Now My blog Look Like a Magazine Blog. I am Satisfied With This. Have Anyone Tried This?



    I have used Arras theme before and it was cool. I will try out the Original News theme
