Solid base script, -get the job done!
By , for WP 3.5.2

Sometimes I don understan WP core developers, and the extramly poor is_mobile() is a great example for something useless. Howdy WordPress! Who wanna see a big ios button on the Samsung Galaxy tablet?

So you need a better detection. And this plugin provides that.

This plugin is using php-mobile-detect, The lightweight PHP class for detecting mobile devices (including tablets) and I been using that script for a long time, outside the WordPress area.

I did some test of other plugins before I was going to develope my own, based on the script mention above. None actually filled the simpleness and stable of what I needed. Except for this one, Hmmm this might be a good solution - then I read that this was build on my old favorite script.

I only miss the auto class naming of each device setup like is-desktop class in the body tag, but ya can add easy your own function for that.

A tip, when using this kind of plugin, always make a if (function exsists) call, so your theme doesnt break when Not using mobile detection later on, for some reaason.

Really useful and easy to use

With the new shortcodes you can direct your visitors to almost any platform/device and serve them your tailored content. Easy to use - just add shortcodes!

Super handy!
By , for WP 3.5

Very, very useful. Excellent candidate for official absorption into WordPress codebase, especially with the ubiquity of a vast array of device types, OSes, browsers, and screen sizes, which is ever more diverse with the boom in smartphones and tablets. Waiting eagerly for shortcode additions for "is ios?", "is android?", etc.!

Simple, and just works.
By , for WP 3.4.1

Unlike the dozens of other plugins I tried prior to this, this plugin just works straight out of the box. The functions are easy to use, and the device detection seems to be all working. Brilliant.
