If you are running blog related to Android apps, news , tutorials and etc , this WordPress material design theme might be a good choice to spice up your site. On the other hand this theme is not taking full advantage of all material design assets. Template’s layout and style is quite boring and seems like many others. I guess Zephyr theme creators forgot, that material design is more than “floating buttons” and cards…. However, if you are looking for WordPress theme, packed with lots of features and built with material design, Zephyr theme might be exactly what you need.
