AppThemes is one of those WordPress theme shops that has been around for a bit, but that somehow slipped under our radar. It turns out they are located in San Francisco, California that seems specifically focused on building applications out of WordPress themes. Launched in 2010, AppThemes has two themes available so far, both for $69: ClassiPress for running classified ads, and JobRoller for creating a jobs site with WordPress.
AppThemes embraced the GPL in October of 2010, a few months after the owner chatted with Matt Mullenweg and StudioPress’ Brian Gardner at WordCamp San Francisco. AppThemes has three themes planned to launch soon: Clipper will be a coupon theme, Vantage a business directory, and Saga a how-to theme. You can follow AppThemes on Twitter and on their blog for updates on when the new themes will be available.
I’m sure this isn’t the only shop we missed. What other theme shops or services have we overlooked? Let us know in the comments.
