Simple, beautiful and efficient
By , for WP 3.8

As a personal blogger I don't need a magazine theme or any theme like that.
On the other hand I don't believe all the links on blog's sides are really usefull, mots of my traffic comes from search engines, so a good SEO is (for me) more efficient than a lot of links to the archives, to the last posts, to the last comments and so on..

Ruy does that, it display only the post and do it beautifully

Best theme so far for me

Content oriented, simple and easy to read
By , for WP 3.5.2

Its so far the best theme I've encountered on WordPress open source theme directory which provides best combination of fonts, font-sizes, content placement and simplicity. It focuses on the content instead of any glitter or shimmer here and there to distract the users from reading the actual content. Really like the theme. Keep up the good work :)

Great Theme, Little Usability Issue
By , for WP 3.5.2

I love the minimalistic approach of this theme and I use it for my blog.

The only issue I have with it is that on the mobile version the menu is compacted and only the word "MENU" appears. I did some informal user testing with friends and noticed that people don't see the menu (they just don't tap it because nothing is indicating it can be tapped).

I solve the issue adding a little arrow to the "MENU" label:

<h1 class="menu-toggle"><?php _e( 'Menu ▾', 'ryu' ); ?></h1>

I don't know if this is the best way to solve this usability issue, but it is at least a quick one!

Well I am using 3.5.2 (no longer sure why) but it seems that Image type post doesn't display pictures for me...
no idea where does it come from
