    Hi -

    I have a custom theme and am looking for a mobile app that will convert my theme instead of creating a new one. Does anyone have any suggestions or apps they really like? I've been looking and most the apps offer the hosting which we don't want.

    Thanks for any input!

    What do you want to convert your custom theme into?

    something like
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wptouch/ (used this and works nice)
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mobile-theme-switcher/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpapptouch/

    but if you wanna do it right, look into responsive css

    Why is responsive CSS better? I was under the impression it would be a lot more work. We have a really larger site (over 300 articles and probably 1000 posts), and the person who would be doing the management of the site isn't tech savy. They also want it quick - can the responsive CSS be done quickly?

    ps - if you know of any articles explaining the benefits and differences, please let me know. What I've found hasn't been that helpful!

    Less cpu load is one benefit and having the same content without having to create a new template.

    This presentation is a very nice one about performance and responsive design.

    You need to know your way around CSS a bit to be able to do this. If not wptouch is very nice one to start with, which is sufficient for a lot of people.

    Thanks, I'll look at that. I'm good with the CSS.

    The owners of the site wanted something quick, so I tried wptouch, did some modifications and though it was nice. But the site owners want something that looks closer to their site. I guess they can't have it both ways - it's either quick and bland, or more time for a better site.

    Do you use a plugin for the responsive sites?

    No I write all CSS myself.... check 'my name' for my site with responsive css (examples)
