It’s been a couple weeks since I started using the plugin WPtouch on my website and it’s been making a marked difference in those who visit from smartphones. I know everyone’s been saying that more and more people are accessing the internet from their smartphones, but up till now I haven’t really been making it a priority. However, making your website user-friendly from the point of view of a mobile device simply cannot be neglected anymore if you want to keep your website on the cutting edge.
Being that mobile devices are smaller than their more stationary cousins, web content should be presented in a format that best fits the screen of the mobile device without the user needing to enlarge the screen every time he visits a page. Granted, there will be times when users will want to view the “authentic” version of your site regardless of the inconveniences, so it’s best to give them the option of switching back to the standard format.
And when doing a little research as well as trying out different plugins, I came across WPtouch, and found it to be just what I was looking for. It not only presents your website in a mobile-friendly format, but yes, it also comes with the option of switching back to the non-wptouch version. I’m not sure if it’s because of WPtouch or not, but ever since I started using it, my mobile visitors have shot up! It’s certainly worth a try!
