I’ve been an iPhone owner now for almost 4 weeks. One of the things I really love is when I visit a website and they have an iPhone friendly version of the site. It makes the experience of visiting that site so much better.
I was delighted when I discovered an extremely handy plugin for WordPress that gives iPhone and iPod touch visitors a version of your blog tailored for their device.
The plugin is called WPTouch and it’s by Bravenewcode. Like any other plugin, it was just a matter of uploading it to the plugin directory and then enabling it. You can see the result below. On the left hand side is what le craic looks like on the iPhone. On the right is what it looks like with the plugin enabled.
The iPhone enabled version of the blog makes viewing and replying to comments a lot easier too. Anyone visiting le craic from a standard browser will always see the standard view.
It’s just one of the sweetest plugins I’ve come across and if you have your own hosted WordPress blog I don’t know of any reason why you shouldn’t give it a go yourself.
