    I know you allready have the option through feed.nu to make a bloggy app, however would it be possible to create a platform for users to actually make basic apps using WordPress?

  2. I think you are asking about using WordPress to make a blog specific to viewing on a mobile device, and not intended for viewing on a PC. Another option would be better flexibility in a standard WordPress blog so it will look great and function correctly both on a PC and on a mobile.

    There are themes like Headway that modify how they are displayed whenever they are viewed on a mobile device (you get to select how the page gets modified). But it would be far better to have a standard, stock WP option so that the market players can standardize and so there will be more compatibility.

    Even on my sites that are not modified for mobile browsers, I get a huge percentage of mobile traffic, and it is just getting bigger. Mobile support needs to be a major focus for WP. There is definite room for improvement.

    Last week I recognized that over 10% of my traffic on one site is coming from mobile devices and this was shocking to me as my site looks awful from an iPhone or another smartphone.
    I tried lots of plugins that claim to make your WordPress site more friendly for mobile devices but I'v been very disappointed.
    My vision is that you can swith between devices in WP backend and manage a site for iPhone/Android smartphones and one for tablets for example. Then you can select what content to display and how to display. Also a preview of the website would be great because not every blogger uses all mobile devices (I don't even have an iPad yet...).
    I'm sure something like that will be coming the next few years and it would be great if WordPress would be on top of things there.

    There are many premium theme with 3 variants: for smartphones, tablets and PC. It is only necessary to activate the theme and nothing more. It uses the same CSS and design, the architecture of blog changing depending on the device you are loading the page.

  6. I voted for this. I want to migrate my site to WordPress platform. But website can not be viewed with mobile devices and this thing made ​​me to quit. I know there are many plugins for this, but I've tried many and these don't work well.
