I have earlier talked about Swift WordPress theme over here, and I’m using it on few of my projects like Cydiaguide.com. Swift is indeed one of the simplest and powerful WordPress theme that you buy without thinking twice. Swift WordPress theme is available in two versions (Free and Premium). Premium one gives you advanced features and support access. If you have not read the review of Swift theme, you can read it here.
Today, an update from Swift WordPress theme caught me eye, and that is; giving away Premium WordPress theme at no cost for 45 days. First of all kudos to Satish for being so confident about his product, that he offered to try and buy, which is we rarely see in WordPress theme marketplace. Satish is offering Latest version of Swift (V7) for 45 days, and if you want to try it (You should) you can grab it from here or read below to know more about Swift WordPress theme.
Swift V7 is here for free Download:
Swift premium WordPress theme comes at the cost of $57 for one-year personal license, and this is a good time for you to get it for free and try it. I would rather suggest you to download the Swift theme and try it on your local server first, and if you like it grab a personal license, which will let you use the theme on multiple domains. You can use below mentioned two guides to install WordPress blog on your desktop or laptop:

Swift V7 is more awesome than it’s earlier versions and it’s all about giving better user experience. Here are some of the notable features of latest version of Swift theme:
This is one feature which all might not need, but if you have a blog which is related to Apple (company) products or viewed by large numbers of retina display users; you will find this very useful. To enable Retina display feature in Swift theme, you need to use WP Retina 2X theme and use Ajax thumbnail rebuild to rebuild the thumbnails. (On demand to take good care of your server). Do enable the Retina support option under Swift settings > Design options> Layout options
What I liked the most about Swift V7 is; designed for giving better user experience. You can now select typography under design options, and even without much knowledge of Typography, you can select from options according to you choice. I would recommend keeping enough white space and give a great reading experience. If you want to know my favorite typography for reading, check this link. For more on typography:
Responsive design and responsive ads:
I’m sure you are aware of the fact about growing number of mobile/tablet readers and how important it is to have a responsive design. With Swift V7, your sites will be completely responsive. This feature was there in older version too, but in the new version; Satish has refined the code to make the responsive design more meaningful. Another powerful and less talked feature of the new version is; show different ads for different screen size. This is handy for you to make more money from your blog by showing screen friendly ad to your readers.
