WPtouch is a great WordPress plugin that detects if your readers are using an iPhone, iPod Touch, or Android device, and serves up a mobile theme for your blog. My blog loads really fast using this free plugin, and the design is quite elegant. Kudos to the folks at Brave New Code, and thanks to A Photo Folio for pre-loading this plugin. Now both my blog and main website work well on mobile devices! Below are a few screenshots of how my blog looks on an iPhone using the WPtouch mobile theme. [Tip: To take a screenshot on the iPhone, just press the sleep button and home button at the same time.]
Main blog page using WPtouch on an iPhone 3G with 3.0 software. The numbers in red on top of the date show the number of comments on each post.
Clicking through to a single entry, inline images are displayed quite nicely.
Update 8/3/2009: The upgrade to version 1.9 of this app broke the favicon and changed the display around. I can no longer access the settings for this app due to a bug, so I’ve disabled it. Hope these issues are remedied soon.
Update 9/1/2009: The app is back with version 1.9.2, and seems to be working fine.
