Mobile Look:

Here you have a great article on Mobile WordPress Themes , if you are interested in changing the “Mobile” look for when visitors go to your Blog through their Mobile devices. There are Free ones and others to purchase. I’m using this one, WPtap News Press and if you are interested in the look, either go to the Footer at the bottom of the page and click on the word “Mobile” or take a look at the Mobile link here. For the simplest mobile look use the MobilePress Plugin . The one which I feel is the most popular and looks the best is WPtouch:

WPtouch automatically transforms your WordPress blog into an iPhone application-style theme, complete with ajax loading articles and effects, when viewed from iPhone, iPod touch, Android, Palm Pre, Samsung touch and BlackBerry Storm/Torch mobile devices.

The admin panel allows you to customize many aspects of its appearance, and deliver a fast, user-friendly and stylish version of your site to touch mobile visitors, without modifying a single bit of code (or affecting) your regular desktop theme.

The theme also includes the ability for visitors to switch between WPtouch view and your site’s regular theme.

Now Available: WPtouch Pro! Totally re-written top to bottom, with a slew of new features like more style, color and branding customizations, themes, 10 languages, more advertising options, Web-App mode, and more!…….Plugin Link

Good Luck and Enjoy!
