The NEW WordPress Mobile Pack allows you to 'package' your existing content into a cross-platform mobile web application.
The WordPress Mobile Pack 2.0+ has been completely rebuilt from the ground up and repurposed to empower bloggers, publishers and other content creators to go beyond responsiveness and 'appify' the content of their blog.
WordPress Mobile Pack 2.0+ is supported on: iPhones, Android smartphones, Windows Phone 8, Firefox OS. Compatible browsers: Safari, Google Chrome, Android - Native Browser, Internet Explorer 10 and Firefox.
The pack has been tested on WordPress 3.5 and later. Please read the Known issues and limitations list before installing.
The WordPress Mobile Pack 2.0+ eliminates the hassle of dealing with high development costs, approval processes with various app stores, poor discoverability due to the closed environment of native apps and finally, one of the biggest injustices aimed towards the publishing industry in general - the shared revenue constraint.
What the WordPress Mobile Pack 2.0+ enables you to do:
Cross-platform mobile web applications. All it takes for a mobile web application to run is a modern mobile browser (HTML5 compatible), thus allowing readers to instantly have access to your content, without needing to go through an app store, download & install the app.
Responsive UI. The mobile web application is sensitive to various screen sizes and orientation changes: landscape, portrait. In other words, the look and feel of the mobile web app seamlessly morphs into the screen size of users' devices.
Theming. You can offer your users an exceptional reading experience by giving them a mobile web application with a native app-like look & feel. The default theme comes with 6 abstract covers that are randomly displayed on the loading screen to give the app a magazine flavour.
Customize appearance. Once a favourite theme has been selected, you can customize the colors & fonts, add your logo and graphic elements that can relate to your blog's identity.
Posts Sync. The posts inside the mobile web application are organized into their corresponding categories, thus readers can simply swipe through articles and jump from category to category in a seamless way.
Pages Sync. Choose what pages you want to display on your mobile web application. You can edit, show/hide different pages and order them according to your needs.
Comments Sync. All the comments that are displayed in the blog are also synchronized into the mobile web application. On top of that, comments that are posted from within the app are also displayed on the blog.
Analytics. WordPress Mobile Pack 2.0 easily integrates with Google Analytics.
Add to Homescreen. Readers can add the mobile web application to their homescreen and run it in full-screen mode.
