Thanks for the feedback everyone. I’ll try out some different typefaces, and I agree that the footer is lousy – gonna redo that.
I’d really love to keep things simple and avoid too many jquery animations, sliders, etc. Could that be possible if the theme was well done?
What I’m getting from this is that my theme is a little boring and inconsistent.
Can anyone help me out here? I want to get better, but I can’t see what’s wrong with my theme.
I thought for sure I’d get a soft reject, but I got a hard reject. Can anyone tell me how to improve my design?

While I’d be able to provide feedback as to how to get this approved, I can only do after it has crossed a certain threshold, quality wise. I’m sorry to say this isn’t there yet.ty wise. I’m sorry to say this isn’t there yet.
Should I try to make my theme pass the standards or just put it out for free and move on to the next?

Anyone else here not use a case?
I took off my case and screen protector a while ago, and I gotta say it’s no problem at all (iphone 4). I feel like it’s a crime to cover up a device made so beautifully with a case.
C’mon everyone, free your phone!
