    Thanks for the Theme collection. But when making site with other themes we should consider these points we are going to use a Our Own Custom Design.

    Since this article was written, I’ve released the new version of my theme, Weaver II. In addition to totally automatic mobile integration, Weaver II is a complete theme platform with the best customization options available. See it at http://weavertheme.com.

    You can do nothing, and get a great mobile view for smart phones, small tablets like the Kindle Fire, and large tablets like the iPad. But there are also other mobile customization options available. Unlike many mobile themes, the Weaver II mobile view presents a site that shares the look and feel of your main website, so your visitors get a unified experience.

    If you do believe your mobile site should not match your main site, Weaver II does support the option of creating an entirely different custom theme for your site, or one that has as much tweaking as you want.

    I wish there were more themes that were just built to be mobile friendly

  12. maintenance software   •  

    I use mobile smart. WPTouch does not work for my themes I create with Artisteer. With Mobile smart you can choose a desktop theme and a mobile theme and your users can switch to mobile and back to desktop, no matter if they’re on mobile or desktop.

    Great article thanks! I want a mobile-friendly theme that allows listening to an audio file on an iphone or ipad, and those that do this, the file plays in flash which is no good. Any ideas if there is any iphone-ipad friendly theme that will play audio?
