Generatepress and Airi are highly ranked on WordPress.org for the most popular and most downloaded themes. Both themes have a pro and a free version. I will quickly show you the best features of both themes and give my opinion.
This Generatepress review will quickly show you whether this theme is suitable for building your latest project. According to the builders, Generatepress has been developed for the construction of the perfect shops, corporate websites and blogs. In addition, the theme had to produce lightning-fast loading times.
Apart from the free version of Generatepress that can be downloaded here, the theme also has a very good pro version.
Generatepress Review Demos
A while ago, Generatepress everywhere indicated that it is so compatible with Elementor and Beaverbuilder. This is still the case but since the introduction of their own block builder many of the demos are before that. Generatepress currently has a total of 60+ demo website that can be installed with 1 click. Watch the video to get a good impression about their demos.
I personally don’t know of any faster loading themes than Generatepress except maybe Astra. The theme is really insanely fast, comparable fast to minimalist themes that can do nothing. But Generatepress can do a lot and we are dealing with a special theme here. Below is how their own site loads in a second.
Generatepress' Schema Mark-up
Already built into Generatepress is the Google Schema Mark-Up. It automatically generates rich snippets for your pages, making them easier to find and more frequently displayed.
Generatepress & Woocommerce
Finally, I would like to indicate in this Generatepress review that this theme is also great for building online stores. It offers many features that give your shop a professional impression and building the shop is incredibly fast and smooth. Check the video if you have 2 minutes.
Generatepress Review Pricing
This theme has very reasonable prices. For $59 you can install it on 500 websites, so basically unlimited. View the Generatepress pricing page here.
Generatepress Review Conclusion
Generatepress is installed as a free version on 4 million sites and the pro version on 90,000 sites. This is of course not for nothing and indicates what a good theme this is. The theme is indeed lightning fast, very versatile and has beautiful designs that can be adjusted with elite page builders or their own Block Editor. Definitely recommend this theme.
Let’s continue this Airi vs Generatepress comparison with the Airi Theme.
The Airi Theme
This Airi theme review will focus on the key features. This theme was created by aThemes and featured on more than 20,000 websites. I have had positive experiences with another theme that was created by aThemes, named Sydney. I suppose Airi has more or less the same to offer. Airi is in the first place a theme that should create great webshops and is easy to understand for beginners and pros.
Airi Theme Review: Ratings
Below you can see on the 2 images the rating of Airi Pro and that of Airi Free. The Airi Free rating can be found on WordPress .org and the other rating comes from the Notorious Themeforest marketplace where the theme has recently been sold as well. However, it is recommended that you just buy on your own site if you intend to.

Airi Theme: Demo Websites
The vast majority of Airi’s demo websites are intended for E-commerce purposes, in other words to build webshops with them. I give below with the images a few examples of the demo websites for different niches. The images can be clicked to view them larger and square. All shops were built with the Woocommerce plugin.

Airi Review: Loading Speed
The Airi Theme is a very fast loading theme, which is not surprising because we call it minimalistic, which has fast loading times as a feature. Below in the image you can see a test done via GtMetrix, a renowned speed test. If you are looking for a super fast loading theme, check Astra, the fastest theme for WordPress that has a lot to offer at the same time.
Airi Review: Page Builders
Airi Review: Header Lay-outs
Below I show you 3 different headers but the Airi theme offers a total of 20+ Header Layouts that you can install in your website with 1 click. Further adjustments to the header can then be made. I’m not going to show it all in this Airi Review, but Airi also has 12+ portfolio layouts and 8+ team layouts.
Airi Review: Blog Lay-outs
We already know that Airi primarily focuses on building shops, but Airi can do much more. For those of you who blog often and want to build a good site for it, it’s good to know that Airi offers different layouts for blogs. I wouldn’t be so quick to use Airi for it myself, but it’s certainly possible. A good theme for blogs is of course Divi.
Airi Theme Review: Settings
Practically all settings for the Airi theme are controlled via the standard WordPress Customizer. Most themes now make use of this, which makes the settings well-arranged. Think of settings for the header, your blog, the footer, sidebar, the shop, copyright, font settings and so on.
Airi Theme Review Conclusion
Thank you so much for reading my Airi Theme Review for the year. Airi is capable of a lot. Even in the free version, the demo layouts look great. Airi can be used to build any kind of website. You can access all themes from AThemes for a bit more than one theme. As Divi shows, memberships often offer more value than just one theme. Airi operates great in combination with the Elementor page builder.
Airi vs Generatepress Conclusion
My opinion regarding Airi vs Generatepress: Any type of website can be built with both themes. Both themes load quickly and have beautiful demo websites. That said, it seems that both themes are practically the same, but that is not the case. Generatepress offers more of everything, and is better than Airi at everything. In addition, Generatepress offers a lot of features that are not in Airi. Generatepress is a much more developed and mature theme and the clear winner.
