How to Make Your Site iPhone Friendly

Is your website ready for the mobile revolution? With Foursquare check-ins, Google mapping, Instagram photos and more, it’s no surprise that mobile browsing has quadrupled in the past four years. And it’s only going to continue. By 2014 mobile browsing will surpass desktop browsing.

Your site can be ready in minutes with the Mobile plugin for WordPress. It’s a user-friendly plugin that will create mobile versions of your website for various mobile devices. It includes several starter themes and you can also use a built-in style manager to customize the themes to match your regular site. You can even tweak different themes and styles for different devices: offer a wider view for wider screens if you want.

How To Use Mobile Plugin
Once you download and install the Mobile plugin, your site is dishing up mobile versions to mobile users. It’s that easy. Of course you’ll probably want to tweak the defaults. Under Themes & Devices you can assign specific themes to specific devices. As you hover over each theme you can access the Style Manager and tweak the mobile view to your heart’s content.

One of the first things you’ll want to do is create your own mobile header. Just create a smaller version of your current graphic header that will fit on mobile devices.

Next you can tweak the mobile colors to better match your regular website. While you want to deliver a different experience to mobile users, you still want to maintain your brand.

You can also adjust various settings across all mobile platforms. By default a link is offered on all mobile versions to view the non-mobile site (giving your viewers a choice is always good). You can also offer unique titles or descriptions for mobile users. This is also where you can disable the mobile plugin if you need to.

Mobile is Now
As mobile use continues to become more wide spread, it’s important that your site is ready. This is a quick and easy way to get there.

  1. I am using the Mobile Website Builder for WordPress by DudaMobile. It’s very easy to use and really effective. It made my site mobile friendly in just 3 steps. All I had to do was just download & install the plugin and press the “Create your mobile site now” button. It took me to the dudamobile website, where I can customize the Mobile site according to my need. And it’s a very easy WYSIWYG editor. Then I published my site and Bingo !!! I had a mobile site just like that. Guys you can check out the plugin yourself here : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mobile-website-builder-for-wordpress-by-dudamobile/
