If both Monstroid themes are multipurpose and are compatible with Elementor which one should you choose?

You know it’s a matter of tastes, the Monstroid2 these is a lot more robust and has one interesting thing called Magic Button. You can find it in the Elementor interface.

With the help of this button, you can get access to all sections and blocks from all skins included in the Monstroid2 theme.

The button makes you omnipresent thus you can access all skins at once, or one at a time. By accessing all skins you can add any section to any other pre-designed or a new page. This feature is really amazing.

Both themes are able to cover all business niches due to their extreme customizability. Which one to choose is up to you. If you something more robust than it’s Monstroid2 if you need something smaller than it’s the Monstroid.
