WPtouch Pro Review – Mobile Plugin for WordPress

Maybe not specifically related to content curation, but making sure your blog is mobile friendly is going to be a key.  Nice review at wpmayor describes how this premium plugin does it for you.  Of course the debate over responsive design versus a mobile specific version will go on for a while.

There are currently two options for mobile themes. The first is to have a responsive theme, which automatically adapts to the screen size it is being viewed upon. While this can be a great option for blogs with a straightforward design, many times it is unpractical for larger sites as it will slow down the sites (need to download all desktop content) and also make it very complex for the designer/developer to change things around depending on the device. There’s also the issue of excessive scrolling/too much content.

With a server side solution like WPtouch Pro you can offer a more streamlined solution that can create a specific mobile experience while maintaining optimal performance on any device.
