Short of having a personal mentor, there are several different services that offer this type of feedback. Perhaps just Google for it:

I was just reading this page here http://store.apple.com/us/buy-iphone/iphone6 it says that without a contract the phone is 649$ for the most basic model, if i’m not wrong, in usa, taxes are applied after purchase? Does it mean it would be 649$ + taxes of the state where i’m buying it from?

Correct. There will be taxes applied on top of that. The percentage will depend on the state your girlfriend is purchasing it in.

Thanks for the link :), sounds like it would still be cheaper to buy it in USA, do you know if they are carrier locked or if they have problems working outside USA?

If your country’s cell phone carrier system supports its bandwidth, then the unlocked version (costing $650+) will work outside of the USA with those carriers. You should call your cell company and ask if they can support it (they probably will). You should also ask if they’ll be able to provide you with a Nano-SIM card.

See the sections “Cellular and Wireless” and “SIM Card” below:

I don’t understand what you’re asking.

My advice would be to just focus on your own work and let those other unsavory authors put their livelihood at risk with questionable assets. Before submitting your item to the marketplace, just use images that are already licensed for commercial use. Very simple.

There are so many image assets out there right now that we can use (both free and premium) that there’s really no reason at this point for authors to be using unlicensed work. Those that are are just putting their livelihood at risk.

It’s funny reading about folks complaining about the rounded corners. Remember this? Back to iPhone roots. I like it:

1- What is your first designing toolkit? —Photoshop

2- How you decide, there is a need of specific theme in marketplace? —Some minor / high level niche research (I only develop nonprofit themes) but more likely just what inspires me at the time. If you’re not inspired to create it, then you’ll get bored with it pretty fast.

3- Are you using bootstrap or some other front-end frameworks? —Yes. Zurb Foundation.

4- How you promote your work here? —That’s part of the reason I pay a fee to Envato so I can focus on making products and not worry so much about being a marketer. Just Twitter and Facebook for me.

5- Can i use some freebies .psd work from other authors on my theme design? —Only if the license allows the asset to be used in a commercial product.

Good luck!

I’m finding that it intermittently works. Possibly related; when I navigate to the statement page and the URL has a query string appended to it, it sometimes doesn’t work. It always works again when I remove the string.

Example: http://themeforest.net/statement?controller=user

This looks like a really great start but perhaps you can think about:

Make it less generic. The theme doesn’t particularly bring anything new or improved to the market.

I really like the typography and chosen fonts I just think that the spacing is a bit awkward for the different sections. For example, the home hero area at the top has a big padding above the text but not so much below it: http://d.pr/i/d02S

Another example, the very large icons in the generic text section above the teeny images in the portfolio section. The size ratio doesn’t make much sense: http://d.pr/i/99B6

Speaking of the portfolio feature, the images also seem quite small on the actual portfolio page too even without ginormous icons to compare them to: http://goo.gl/w5tgK8

If you’re going for minimalism, you’ve gotta do it really REALLY well. Not to say that this is bad, it’s just that in order to pull off a theme with few “bells and whistles” like this, it has to have absolutely perfect typography, spacing, etc.

Other things:

—The gallery arrows are too big in relation to the other elements on the page: http://d.pr/i/zAsi

—You should really think about what other value (features) you’d like to add to the theme.

Don’t get disheartened. Keep at it! Rejections can only make us stronger designers and developers.
