carefully with the update
By , for WP 3.8.1

there is said that it has time limitation for making changes to the theme after 30 days. So if you like to use the theme you have to be quite fast and after that you are locked in. This is a hidden push to sell the pro version. It is not fair nor smart.
Still it is working, but......

Too buggy to be useful
By , for WP 3.8

I tried version 0.2.6 of this theme. Setup was difficult and confusing, though I did like having the expansive array of customizable options. Perhaps if essential/common options were grouped separately from the fine-tuning options, setup would have been less of an ordeal.

After setup, I immediately noticed very large and obtrusive advertising on every page. I also noticed several unwanted widgets that I could not seem to remove from the footer/sidebar. The real show-stopper was the visibly buggy home page and sidebar. Hovering over the first instance of a repeated featured blog entry teaser causes a third text-only occurrence to flash across the entire window at various vertical positions. And, the sidebar is occasionally replaced with several instances of the word, "Show".

After this, I had seen enough. Time to move on.

Did not install properly
By , for WP 3.6.1

I was browsing for alternative designs and found this one that looked like it might work out. I installed it on a non-public blog for testing and it didn't install properly. After installation it repeatedly asked for my webhost access credentials. After entering them multiple times and getting the request again at the top of the page I have given up.

Finally a flexible wordpress theme
By , for WP 3.6

I searched through almost every responsive theme there is and finally I found this one! I could modify it to be simple or complex and to what I wanted. :)

Not perfect, some colors didn't update and I needed some css overrides for that, but best out there right now.

This is not a free theme - misleading, waste of time
By ,

If you don't give support for free users, you don't qualify to be in the free themes list.
Free users are helping you to debug and improve your theme by using it. It is a two way, give and take relationship. This is the spirit of WP!!! This is the FREE themes section. If you don't give us support, please put your them in the commercial list, and don't mislead us and waste our time.

Best freemium theme available for wordpress
By , for WP 3.5.1

The best part I like in Swift theme is each and every corner of the blog can be customized using the theme options page. Congrats for your amazing work.

Superb Theme
By , for WP 3.5

I like Swift theme because there are a whole lot of options you can do to design your blog. However for a non techy blogger like who is just maintaining a personal blog, it can be a little difficult at first. I am just happy that the developer is apt to answer some ot my stupid questions (again I am not techy),
