Tailored to the design specs and browsers of touch-based smartphone, WPtap detects the type of mobile device and adjust to its browsers for best performance. It makes your WordPress website looks amazing on an iPhone, iPod Touch, Blackberry, or Android Phone, while loads lightening fast, all accomplished without interfering with your regular theme for PC.
Why do I need WPtap?
As we know, due to the difference in screen size between a smartphone and a PC, many WordPress sites with regular PC themes failed to translate well in the viewport of a small iPhone/Blackberry/Android. Consequently, those sites look messy and chunky on smartphone, which makes it hard for users to navigate their contents on a smartphone.
New generation of touch-based smartphone, such as iPhone, features a multi-touch display user interface (UI). Users browse a site by tapping and swiping the screen. However, regular WordPress themes are not designed to optimize iPhoneâ€™s unique user experience, thus not so friendly to iPhone users at all.
All of above makes browsing a site on iPhone not fun! So, to bring fun back, weâ€™ve built WPtap, a lightweight, mobile-optimized, feature-rich, and elegant looking â€œtheme applicationâ€. User can also customize various aspects of his Wordpress siteâ€™s presentation through the well-designed control panel.
Well, what if my users donâ€™t like it & want to see my regular site?
Weâ€™ve included a built-in switch on your site (e.g. at header/footer) for your users to easily switch between the WPtap view and your siteâ€™s regular appearance. A cookie with the setting choice is saved for future visits.
Will it slow down my blog?
Absolutely No! WPtap is specially designed for and only for iPhone. Its performance has been optimized based on smartphoneâ€™s design specs and browsers. Our tech team has run through testing to make sure it offers your siteâ€™s viewers the best viewing experience. The theme package of WPtap is designed to be as lightweight and speedy as possible, while still serving your siteâ€™s content in a richly presented way sparing no essential features like search, login, categories, pictures, tags and comments.
Since WPtap only works on high-end phones, such as iPhone and Android, what if I want my site also be visible on lower-end phones that are not touch-based?
You can install other plugins such as MobileForge and MobilePress, which works great on lower-end phones. Now by using WPtap Mobile Detector, you can choose different themes to be activated for different type of mobile devices. So you can have both installed and activated, that will cover both lower and higher-end users. We have thoroughly tested WPtap with the above plugin/themes mentioned, there are absolutely no conflicts. You can even keep your regular WAP site.
