    • i’ve tried them all (like i always do before writing), but for the website i developed i used WordPress Mobile Plugin. easy one.

  1. I got to know about this plugin few days back and I installed it on my blog. The plugin works great. Though the downside is due to adsense or any advertisement code , it make your blog look ugly in mobile. If you are not using any adsense code around your blog posts. This plugin will be very handy to get an extra edge from mobile internet users.

  2. I know the importance of rendering mobile views of the blogs is important, but there needs to be an app which simplifies writing for the blog on a cell phone/smartphone. One where there isn’t a need to access online and come to the site until ready to publish. That would be a great addition.

  3. Hi,

    It’s great to see posts like this popping up giving more exposure to mobile development in wordpress! However, it’s a shame that your list was created before my mobile plugin was published – it’s definitely worth featuring!

    I’ve created a mobile plugin for wordpress written in WAPL that allows you to use the same URL as web, ensure that every device in the world is catered for and retain the look and feel of web to mobile making your blog look really nice.

    The plugin is at version 1.3 and there are tons of features available, here are just a few:
    – Dynamic resizing of images
    – Retains SEO and URL from web to mobile
    – Allow your visitors to comment from mobile
    – Customize your blog perfectly for mobile
    – There’s more on the plugin homepage!

    The homepage can be found here: and it’d be great to hear your feedback on it if you want to give it a go!

  4. Thanks for adding mine to the list!

    Any change you could change the download link to the latest version please? I think the WordPress repository hadn’t updated when you posted the link, but it has now!


  5. I am such a noob. So does this mean when you install a plu-in such as this.. your website can be seen via pc and mac and then also on mobile.. or does this just render it visible ONLY on a mobile phone.. I am a bit confused..

  6. Thank you for the great variety with plugins, i have a number of favourites to, like the all known “All IN SEO “as well as the easy privacy policy and also SEO friendly images (got some good results with it)and lastly pretty links (great for cloacking) affiliate links…

  7. Now i moved to word-press mobile pack as now they are more feature rich and they are not cheating the users by inserting their own ad ids in code like rich gubby is doing in wapple.
