There are many things that you should look for in a WordPress theme, but one of the essential features that must be present in every theme is responsiveness. Responsiveness is just a fancy way of saying that your WordPress theme can adapt to all the screen sizes, browsers and devices that include mobile devices like smartphones, tablets, iPhones, iPads and the like.
Responsiveness is a must-have feature, not only because your website will look brilliant and crisp on every device increasing visitor satisfaction, but it is also essential because cross compatibility with all the devices means that you will not lose visitors and customers from anywhere, irrespective of the type of devices they are using.
Although responsiveness is needed for almost every website type, one must not compromise on the other features that make your site more accessible to masses. That’s because if your visitors cannot see the site quickly, there is very slim chance of them stopping by your website.
Fortunately, there are hundreds of responsive WordPress themes available in the market, but there are only a few them that are both responsive and still manage to give you access to all the premium features.
