What is a Theme?
A store is nothing less than a dream for its owners, everyone wishes to make it as appealing as possible. Imagine decorating your store so beautifully that it becomes a reason for major sales in your business.

Features of Turbo Theme
Apart from its God speed, this theme provides you with innumerable features which cannot be found in any other theme. The features of the Turbo theme are as follows.
- Intelligent Page Preloading
Only if there were a time machine to predict the future, the majority of our decisions would’ve been turned out to be better, isn’t it? Well, what if we tell you that Turbo has partially mastered the art of it?
When a user flutters the curser over the link of a page, Turbo works in the background by downloading the content, code, image and the text of that page prior to the moment when the user clicks on it. Now as most of the loading has already been done, the page loads in microseconds without making the users wait.
Although the time difference between the fluttering and clicking is just a fraction of seconds, it is more than enough to preload the content so that the transition to the next page would be negligible.
If the user does not wish to go to the next page, no harm is done, as the page is already preloaded, if the user decides to visit the page later, they can do it without any wait.
This theme is also helpful for mobile device users although in a moderately different manner. The store opens in a couple of seconds in the mobile as soon as it detects a fingerprint.
2. Start Image Loading
A clear image which loads within seconds is like walking the plank. Turbo is rated as the fastest theme for a reason, it uses advance code to direct the optimal image file that can be used in unique situations.
This theme will allow your customers to view the image on their 27-inch screen without waiting, keenly observing the most minute details of your product. It resizes itself according to the device and features high-quality images, providing your shoppers with the clearest images possible. This theme provides the quality which reaches up to 2048 pixels which is Shopify’s maximum size.
Well, most of the users scroll on their phones while travelling or eating which are not connected to a home server and if your image is going to eat away their data plans, the sale is surely going down. Again, Turbo on service, it features smaller images to mobile users that avoid using unnecessary bytes, hence, serving high-quality internet without chewing off your customer’s data.
3. Infinite Scroll and Load More
This key feature of Turbo allows the store developer to put either “Infinite Scrolling or Load More” option on your collection pages so that your user never run out of options to browse through the products.
Infinite Scrolling technique automatically loads the next chunk of products as soon as the user reaches the end of the page, providing innumerable options to keep your users engaged. The ‘load more’ option does majorly the same thing as Infinite Scrolling but the user has a choice whether or not he wants to browse through the products, clicking on load more will feature the next batch of products on the screen.
This feature proves itself to be really useful to feature the wide array of products to your shoppers which will perk up your sale.
4. Refined Quick Shop
Turbo’s slick “Quick Shop” is a feature which allows your shoppers to quickly go through the basic information of a product and add them to cart from a stylish modal window which pops up on the collection page of your website.

Also, it allows shoppers to add a product of their liking to the cart directly from the modal window which helps in boosting the conversions.
