Maybe the coolest part of Basic Maths 1.1 is the brand new, iPhone-friendly view. Any user viewing a site running this newest version of our theme will see a mobile-optimized presentation of the exact same content.

Basic Maths 1.1 is still priced at just US$45. I just want to reiterate what a bargain that is compared to premium themes sold elsewhere. I’d argue that the attention, care and through-and-through design quality built into Basic Maths is well above that for most other premium themes, and at a much lower cost. You can buy your copy here.
