As more and more people now interact with the interweb via their smartphone, it has become very important to make any WP blog mobile devices friendly.
I recently relaunched this blog, and decided now’s the time to look into what WordPress plugins will convert the current theme into an optimized version, and also deliver a fast load time on mobile broadband.
A quick search revealed that there were not that many free WP plugins to choose from. I didn’t want to use a paid service or go premium upgrade until I have increased my site traffic significantly, and then I would probably wonder if it would be better to build a mobile site from scratch.
The popular plugins I found I listed below. But having read comments on various geek sites it seems to be a trial and error chore process to see which one works best for the type of WP theme and content on your blog…and your own personal preference and frustration levels! 😉
With smartphone technology changing very rapidly I imagine these plugins will be constantly need to be updated. There were many others that showed up in a search, but seeing as they hadn’t been updated in like two years, I passed on them.
I’m starting my trial with the free version of the WPtouch as they have had 3.6M downloads and the devs are active on updates, but I expect I will have gone through all these WP plugins to see which one works the best for me.
So with that I wrap up my list of the best WordPress plugins for mobile blogging. Most of the above plugins I found from research work with almost all smartphones. Your on topic comments are always appreciated.
