We’re consuming more information on our mobile devices, including blog posts.
As bloggers we know that content is king. We also spend a bit lots of time fiddling with the format, font, color, and a ton of other design features to enhance readability and make the experience for our visitors pleasant and efficient.
Unfortunately all of that formatting doesn’t translate well on a smartphone. What’s a blogger to do?
If you’re on the WordPress platform – which I highly recommend – it’s as simple as uploading and activating a plugin, choosing the settings you want (the default works just fine) and that’s it. All in less than five minutes.
The awesome plugin is WPtouch which formats your site with a mobile theme for visitors on Apple iPhone / iPod touch, Google Android, Blackberry Storm and Torch, Palm Pre and other smartphones.
WPtouch automatically transforms your WordPress website into an application-like theme, complete with ajax loading articles and effects when viewed from the most popular mobile web browsing devices.
The admin panel allows you to customize many aspects of its appearance, and deliver a fast, user-friendly and stylish version of your site to touch mobile visitors.
It includes the ability for visitors to switch between the WPtouch mobile view and your site’s regular theme.
The plugin is closing in on three million downloads. There’s also a Pro version, but the free plugin is all you’ll need. Get yours now!
