Continuum is a premium WordPress theme from ThemeForest perfect suitable for Magazine & News blogs, Gaming sites, Movie & Music review blogs, product review sites like Cnet.com, portfolio sites, personal blogs, and book review blogs. But there is an another theme in Woothemes also called “Continuum“, but I feel the Themeforest Continuum is better than Woothemes Continuum.
