photo gallery plugin that displays nicely on iPhone/iPod (5 posts)

    I'm looking for a photo gallery plugin that will display nicely on an iPhone/iPod. I'm currently using WP Mobile Detector to switch the theme to a mobile version (Carrington). I'm able to tweak the CSS to get everything to look pretty good for both the Dektop and Mobile versions of my site but I'm stuck on the photo gallery. For the desktop version I'm using WP Image Flow 2 which has a cover flow type effect and I like it. It does not however look very good or navigate very easily on an iDevice.

    So here is what I want:

    1. A photo gallery plugin that looks good on the iPhone
    2. Said gallery plugin should tie into the standard wordpress media gallery system
    3. If you could navigate by swiping that would be really cool - but not a priority

    Any ideas? I've spent hours pouring through plugins and themes. Google is not helping much either.

    I'm in a similar position!

    The only thing I've found with the functionality which you've described is the "Re Touch Pro" theme from Graph Paper Press. Still along way of perfect!!!

    The only example of a gallery which displays perfectly in this way that I've found is on flickr's mobile site.

    Although the flickr branding isn't ideal the speed and excellence of there slideshow gallery is by far the best i've seen.

    hopefully one of the geniuses who've developed.
    slickr flickr, awesome flickr gallery, flickr gallery or any of the other wordpress flickr plugins will be able to adapt their code so that it detects when a mobile device is viewing the gallery and takes the user to the m.flickr url rather than displaying the image in a lightbox?

    heres hoping.

    Nope, I did try to get in touch with RonakG.com who developed the awesome flickr gallery, but i think he's moved to another country? As far as a stand alone plugin goes there doesn't seem to be anything out there?
