  1. Nebulas Website Design Chelmsford

    Very useful and interesting article. I haven’t yet looked into the mobile side of things for WordPress but may have a project coming up which involves this.

    This is a really top plugin! I found out about it through this article and bought a copy last week. In just a few hours I had my site perfectly configured for viewing on the iPhone and iPad using the built-in themes, which I modified slightly to suit my site.

    Thanks for telling us about WPTouch and keep up the good work on this site!

    Thanks for the post! I do like WPTouch Pro. Really you can’t beat it for ease of setting up.

    I’ve also had good luck with Mobile Smart. Not quite as easy, but it allows you to have your own look a bit more.

    To be honest, my phone does little else besides make and receive calls too! I’m chained to my computer most of the day so it makes it a little pointless but it would be nice every so often

    Why is a mobile theme needed ? None beats the original website, unless it is so bad …

    In today’s bigger screen smartphones, it no longer seems relevant. One can see the blog in its ful glory and zoom in if needed …

    What do you think ?

    Great review Jean, I did one myself on this same plugin as I love it. I think we get so focused on either using a mobile plugin or a theme that has responsive design. There of course is pros and cons on both, and often it’s just much easier to add something like WPTouch Pro rather than changing your sites theme as you had mentioned.

    I know that some people argue that a sites design is lost with a plugin, or that yes, we can pinch and squeeze to our hearts content. But I like to use one of my latest clients as a perfect example. They are a towing company. When someone drives off the icy road into a ditch with 3 feet of snow, they don’t give a heck what your site looks like on a phone, all they want is to be able to call you quickly and easily. With WPTouch we were able to create a simple homepage just for that reason.

    Do you know if WPtouch is ready for Blackberry’s new z10. I installed the plugin on my site but all I get on my z10 is a blank white screen.

    Hi Blair! We added support for BlackBerry 10 devices a few months back (http://www.bravenewcode.com/2013/01/blackberry10/). Not sure why your site isn’t displaying as expected. Could you drop us a note with a link so our support team can take a look? support[at]bravenewcode[dot]com. Thanks!

    Sorry, I may have confused your plugin with one of the many others I was trying. Yours works! However, I think my site is too big. I am playing with it now and trying to find the correct amount of usage.

    Hi Jean, I left a not-so-enthusiastic comment about WP Touch on 17 April 2012 here. Strange that it’s gone missing?

    Hi Jean,
    Very wise collection of words.
    I want to know, is there any plugin that can customize a template. I am using de-tube and I want to modify some of its functions.
