Mobile Compatibility

Visiting websites is currently like a daily habit for many people. We visit different sites for various purposes, and most of the web exploring is being done from smartphones. So, Having a consistent website for smartphones is a must thing nowadays. A mobile-friendly website present short but same descriptive version of the desktop view.

This test helps us to understand how a theme will behave with different-sized devices. We have checked the demo, and it's okay, but there are few things that need correction. As we are currently on the "home single product 2" demo, the section shown above has an overlapping text issue. Other demos might have the same problems. Also, in a few places we think, page elements could look better if they were center aligned. And lastly, the animation effect doesn't work on the mobile version, but we cant point it as a drawback cause everything has its own limitation.

Mysteriously, Google has certified this theme as a smartphone-friendly theme without mentioning any issue. We attempted a Google Mobile friendly test, and it looks like there nothing important to notice. However, as Google is not a human, that makes this test is not 100% accurate the mobile-friendliness of a WordPress theme.

Design Review

Designing has an influential impact on any website's success. A well-decorated, creative, and comfortably designed website can catch more attention to people than a normal one. It has 11 pre-built home page and multiple shops and product page layout. The Elementor page builder nicely crafts all of them.

Anon is a theme with multi-functional design capability. Its supreme admin panel will let you design different header/footer and banner section, and you can change the color and size of products. It has endless mega menu possibilities AJAX search, filter, and canvas cart to heighten your online shopping experience.

The Anon theme covers the various sector of the website, such as- Bar, Restaurant, Fashion, Furniture, Jewelry accessories, Digital products, Tech products, Sports, Kitchen, Luxury, Handmade, Food deliver, Pet, Toy, etc. So, no matter what niche of your WooCommerece site has, Anon is designed to cover your need.

Speed Test Review

Speed has a great impact on frequent visitor increments. People love to visit faster websites and slower websites don't have a bright future. So, in order to get more reach, fast loading capability plays a prominent role. We test the speed to check how fast a website can finish its landing page loading and three seconds loading is considered to be the ideal score.

We have tested the adding speed of the Anon WordPress theme in Pingdom, and the score left us stunned. It obtained 93(A) out of 100. That's a magnificent score for a WooCommerce site because, generally, online shops contained too many images that increase the loading time. Anon theme took 1.82 seconds, and the page weight is 1.8MB. There is nothing much to modify, but you can decrease the page component by merging CSS or Js files together. This will help to make fewer HTTP requests. If you face any issues with the page loading, WP Super Cache is a great tool that can blow the problems away, and luckily, it comes with the theme bundle.

SEO Review

SEO is the backbone behind organic visitors to any website. An optimized website can grab more people from search engines. Google web ranking depends on SEO compatibility, so the more SEO consistent a website is, the higher chance to be on the top of the search list.

SEO friendliness of the Anon WordPress theme was tested in SEO Site CheckUp, and the result is praiseworthy. It scored 72 out of 100, where there are 33 passes, 12 error, and three warnings. There is no meta description, keywords, sitemap file, and google analytics script available on the demo site. Its using inline CSS with no SEO friendly URL. Also, a few images from the demo site is missing image ALT tags. These are the primary reason behind not obtaining the full score. Yoast SEO is a freemium plugin that can help you with such problems. Its bundled with the theme pack.

Customer Support Review

Customer Support is the key to business success. A happy customer is a living marketer of your brand, and its the job of the support section to turn a potential customer into a promoter. Cleaver soft cares about their clients very much. The theme included 100% free premium level support.

There prefer providing support more on ticket center but still here are some comments from their support section.

The assurance of the word about premium support is reflecting in the review section. Its a competitively new theme and has only nine reviews. But all of them is 5 star. Consumers are praising this theme for customizability, support, design, and features.

Supported Plugins

We can see the generosity of the Anon theme about plugins from the list. CleverSoft developers have their own three plugins, respectively - Clever Layered Navigation for filtered product searching, Clever Swatches for image or color variation display, and Clever Addon for Elemetor is an ultimate WooCommerce addon for Elementor. Yes, Anon has Elementor support so that you can create stunning pages using drag and drop features.

All other necessary plugins like WooCommerce, ACF for multiple options, WPML for multilingual support, Ninja forms and Contact form 7 for ultimate form creation, Yoast SEO, WP super cache, YITH Wishlist, YITH compare, Loco translate for translation support and lastly Meta box to customize envisioned fields comes with the theme.

So you won't be needing plugin anymore, but to improvise your work efficiency and design, you can buy a premium version of these plugins.

Summarize

It would not be a mistake to address the Anon theme as the star of tomorrow because it is showing its success in all aspects, including design, speed, customization, support, etc. There are still some issues with this new theme, but hopefully, the authors will fix these issues soon via updates. So it can be said that it is definitely a value for money product at a low price.
