    This was almost the perfect mobile theme switcher plugin solution, but it falls short on the themes themselves that it provides. Here are the issues I discovered so far with the mobile Wave themes the plugin provides:

    1 - On the Wave themes it doesn't show the Captcha plugin I have installed on comments.

    2 - It also shows the comment box on pages where I have disabled comments.

    3 - Text links within the body of blog posts is not highlighted properly in a separate color.

    4 - There is no way to disable categories from showing on the blog posts.

    5 - There is no way to get back to the homepage on the blog. If you click on the name of the blog at the top of the theme it does nothing. That is normally where the homepage link is imbedded.

    6 - The wave tablet theme is still too small for large tablet screens. It is OK for 7" tablets, but on tablets that are any bigger the theme displays too small.

    As a result of all the above problems I have disabled the plugin and I have gone back to using the mobilepress plugin on my blog at http://www.marcschultz.com.blog

    Mobilepress has none of the above problems and the display window automatically resizes to match the size of whatever screen it is running on. That is the best solution really rather than having different sized themes. Automatic screen and text resizing is the best solution.

    Good luck guys...

    2 more issues I discovered:

    1 - The plugin itself should offer the option of how many posts will be shown per page on each device when selecting your mobile themes.

    2 - The Wave themes should have links at the very bottom of the blog page to switch to desktop version if the user doesn't want to use the mobile theme.
