wordpress theme development using php storm

HI, would php storm be very useful for me; I plan on going into wordpress theme development. I am not very sure, but I think that wordpress theme development does not really use PHP in comparison to wordpress plug in development. Thanks for your time.

It really depends, on if you can afford the cash for phpstorm. The main benefit with phpstorm is the integration of debugging and several other tools. here is a video of a Wordcamp I went to last year discussing phpstorm and wordpress.
