Two weeks ago, I installed the WPtouch Pro plugin to make andreasviklund.com easier to read on mobile devices. Yesterday I updated the plugin to a new version that includes a customized theme for the Apple iPad. If you visit this site with Mobile Safari on an iPad, you will now see a simplified version of this site where the latest blog posts are presented on the home page. An option to add andreasviklund.com as a webapp is available on all iOS devices, and there is of course a theme switch (located in the footer) that allows you to go to the full site instead of the mobile version. Here is what this site looks like on the iPad (in horizontal mode – vertical mode removes the menu and adds a “Menu” button instead):
So far, mobile devices represents only a small percentage of the visits to this site. But the number is growing, and I am a big fan of the simplicity and increased readability that the WPtouch plugin provides so I think that this is a good addition. What do you think?
