Adding Mobile Site To WordPress With WpTouch Mobile Plugin

So are you using a mobile ready template with your WordPress installation? Even if you are using a responsive template, does it satisfy your site needs when users are viewing your site on a mobile device? I asked myself the same question and I felt that my mobile site was lacking a few things. I have a responsive theme, but I thought a web app or dedicated mobile site may serve me better.

Today I tried the WpTouch plugin. The plugin instantly adds a user-friendly mobile site to your WordPress and automatically adds device recognition and an iPhone / iPad web app option if you so desire. There is a huge list of features as well as performance improvements over responsive design.

This app saved me hours of development time coming up with my own option. Installed in a few minutes and was ready to go out-of-the-box. After uploading some images for logo and loading screens (iphone / ipad), it was ready to go.

You can check out how well it works simply by viewing this website with a mobile device. I am using the $49 premium version, but am considering upgrading for more extensions.
