Give your WordPress blog some touchy-feely love

Give your WordPress blog some touchy-feely love

I’ll admit it, I’ve become a real WordPress convert. I particularly love the ease with which you can install plugins, not to mention the great value some of them offer. My latest find is WPtouch which basically repackages your WordPress blog for optimised viewing on iPhone, iPod & Android.

From the smart boffins who put it together – “More than just a plugin, WPtouch is an entire theme package for your WordPress website. Modeled after Apple’s app store design specs, WPtouch makes your WordPress website load lightning fast on touch mobile devices, show your content beautifully, all while not interfering with your regular theme.”

I particularly like the way it still allows your visitors to switch between optimised and large screen formats.

Installation may be a snap but customising it will see the time fly out the window. A lot of plugins offer a some level of customisation, however WPtouch has a full-featured and beautifully laid out set of options that allow you to tweak every last detail. I haven’t started with the options yet but I’m sure I won’t stop until I’m satisfied.

UPDATE: Apparently Stephen Fry loves WPtouch so much he had had it “inserted“.

My Digital Scrapbook

 

I no longer keep a blog, at least not in the traditional sense of the word. Instead this is a scrapbook of interesting or useful design articles and artefacts.
