We’ve talked before how WordPress is becoming more “app” like in both development and implementation as well as how it’s being slowly understood as a platform for application development.
Traditionally (and forever perhaps) it will always have that blog flavor, but that doesn’t mean that WordPress can’t grow up as developers find more and more unique ways to execute against core.
Joshua Sprague over at ThemeForest has a collection that was shared with me late last night that I thought is a good showcase of how some theme authors are paving a way for these “App Themes” that are definitely more than just a blog.
These examples cover eCommerce, community and social networking, geolocation, and more. I hope he continues to grow the collection and showcase more and more great implementations:
Fundify | Crowd Funding WordPress Theme
Directory Portal | WordPress Online Directory
The Navigator | Premium WordPress Location App Theme
iKnowledge | Knowledge Base/Wiki WordPress Theme
Responsive Knowledge Base & FAQ WordPress App Theme
Academy | Learning Management App Theme
ProjectPress | Project Management for WordPress
Thanks Joshua for the curation!
