Review of: JustWriteWordPress Theme: Alexandru CosminVersion:1.0.4Price:FreeReviewed by: Raspal SeniRating:3Summary:JustWrite is a nice theme for writers and bloggers. It's also for anyone who wants a free WordPress theme with a clean and uncluttered interface, with big and readable font size, but still having a decent number of customizable options. I'd give it a 4-star rating if the theme supported some of the shortcomings/missing features. I gave it a 3-star rating also because of lack of proper support from the developer, and no response to my queries on the theme support forum (as well as via e-mail) for more than a month. JustWrite is a modern theme and still in its infancy at version 1.04, as of June 2014.
