VintyMag is a complete Magazine/Newspaper Wordpress Theme where you can showcase your blog news in an old-fashioned look. It is easy to install and configure, and it has got 4 different Home and Categories layouts.
Descriptionpure is a revolutionary, full-working template (UI + Source Code) that you may either hate or totally love!
Its concept and design are minimalist, both app and website allow users to make text-only posts on the homepage and chat in real-time in the public chatroom. There are no images, no GIFs, no videos, no comments, no likes, and no friends.
You can set any username, and messages sent in the chatroom are automatically deleted from the server after one day.
In the era of full-featured, busy social networks, this application can break their rules and attract people who just want to have fun and purely share their thoughts, quotes, whatever, without getting the distraction of comments, likes, followers, and all that stuff.
The package contains a web PHP version too, the included Documentation explains how to set up both the app and website.

An active AdMob account – Unless you want to remove ads in this app, you need to sign up for an AdMob account to display them.
A domain + hosting on GoDaddy – This template has been tested on GoDaddy, so this is the hosting provider that I strongly recommend you to use. DO NOT upload the file on 000webhost.com or other free hosting providers!
A real device to test the app before submitting it to the Play Store – Emulators may fail during tests, they are not reliable as a real device is, so I strongly recommend you to always run this application on a real phone/tablet. This is also suggested by Google’s official Guidelines.
