like it despite minor annoyance
By , for WP 4.1

i like the flexibility of this theme
a few things happened, though, after the latest update.
one: mobile menu vanished. could have sworn there was one there before...
two: i have some transparent rgb color backgrounds set in the custom settings that stopped working because the theme automatically inserted #'s in front of them when i saved the settings. when i alter the presentation page, for example, it is now necessary to go back and edit the color settings to remove the #'s.
i'd probably give this theme 4 stars if i wasn't capable of customizing the code myself. the theme options are pretty epic for people who can't, but less so for people who can. i used them anyway.
i'd give it 5 if not for the settings snafu.

beautiful theme layout but some annoying defects
By , for WP 3.8.1

i like this theme very much - the presets are nice, the design settings menu is easy to handle, and it's styling is slick.
BUT: the styles are all written in the header of every page, which is not a good idea if you want a fast loading website. and including css this way, you take the risk that styling of plugins is always being overwritten. not very elegant.
another thing i find really annoying: the deficient free online support. if cryout creations do not want to deal with questions of people that do not pay for "premium support" they should not offer any free support. in the free support forum there are quiet some threads that have never been replied to by cryout creations. so what is the use of the free forum?
