WPtap is a WordPress specialist in developing mobile-friendly themes/plugins that can instantly turn your WordPress site into a web-application experi

= Why do I need WPtap?

As we know, due to the difference in screen size between a mobile phone and a PC, many WordPress sites with regular PC themes failed to translate well in the viewport of a small iPhone. Consequently, those sites look messy and chunky on mobile phones, which makes it hard for users to navigate their contents on mobile devices.

Higher-end touch-based mobile phones' user interface (UI) is featured by its multi-touch display. Users browse a site by tapping and swiping the screen. However, regular WordPress themes are not designed to optimize iPhone's unique user experience, thus not so friendly to iPhone/Android/Blackberry users at all.

Most WordPress sites make heavy use of different javascripts which significantly increase the load time of pages on iPhone/Android/Blackberry, and drive your visitors on 3G/EDGE battery.

All of above makes browsing a site on mobile phone not fun!

So, to bring fun back, we've built WPtap, a lightweight, iPhone-optimized, feature-rich, and elegant looking ˇ°theme applicationˇ±. User can also customize various aspects of his WordPress site's presentation through the well-designed control panel.

= Well, what if my users don't like it & want to see my regular site?

We've included a built-in option on your site (e.g. at header/footer) for your users to easily switch between the WPtap view and your site's regular appearance. A cookie with the setting choice is saved for future visits.

= Will it slow down my blog?

Absolutely No! WPtap is specially designed for and only for iPhone. Its performance has been optimized based on iPhone's design specs and Safari browser. Our tech team has run through testing to make sure it offers your site's viewers the best viewing experience. The theme package of WPtap is designed to be as lightweight and speedy as possible, while still serving your site's content in a richly presented way sparing no essential features like search, login, categories, pictures, tags and comments.
