In an attempt to become more mobile friendly, I decided to try out WPTouch 2.0 Pro. At a cost of $29.00 for a single user, it seemed worth the price. One of the things that intrigued me the most was the ability to have the mobile site run in “Web-App” mode. This would mean a nice icons for my home page and quick access to the page. However, this feature is only available for iPhones/iPads so I was quite disappointed that it did not work on my Android phone. Despite this, I must say that the resulting website looks nice and does have that “mobile app” vibe. Unfortunately, it does not seem to load all that fast and I am not sure there is really any significant gain in load time over a standard site.
I am hoping that the next release will be an improvement in speed and Android support.
