For a long time I have wanted to set my blog up in a way that allowed for an automatic transition when being viewed from an iPhone. I have always thought it was cool when a site knew that you were coming in from an iPhone and optimized the site for loading on that small resulotion. And it made sense to me that since I am a developer I should be probably develop something like that for my blog.
Well, since I am a developer, and the developer’s philosophy of “lazy developers are the best developers”, it was with insane gladness that I was pointed to the cool little WordPress plugin called wptouch. Now I don’t have to make this because it is already made. How awesome is that?
I really like this plugin. It has a very robust administrative panel so you can set things up pretty much however you want them to appear. The team that brought wptouch also included a photoshop template file for you to make your own iPhone style icons to add to the theme.
Now I just wish I had the 3G iPhone because my 2G loads slower than crap and makes for a very crappy user experience for me. Not that there are that many people reading my blog from an iPhone. But I do, and that means that I need to make sure I am happy. And right now the speed of my connection over EDGE just plain sucks, so I am not happy.
But I happy with the plugin because it loads a very clean, easy to use and very intuitive theme when you hit from a mobile device. So if you happen to have an iPhone/iPod touch, check out this blog with it and see for yourself how cool wptouch is.
