Almost too easy!
By , for WP 3.6.1

We were looking for a simple way to tailor content for small screens, most notably having a link open normally rather than in a fancybox (which looks great on a desktop but is unusable on a mobile), and also to offer our mobile apps to the appropriate visitors.

Couldn't have asked for anything simpler than this. One of those plugins that just works with no fuss and makes tailoring content a breeze.

Thanks so much for writing this!

Issues with CDN
By , for WP 3.6.1

Has anyone else had problems with this plugin interacting with CDN's and page caching? I'm using CloudFlare on a website and W3 Total Cache plugin and it seems that the detecting has stopped and the website is messed up :(

Detects reliable

Very good plugin!
Detects every device (tablet / phone / desktop) in the right way. Both, shortcodes and functions do their job. *thumbs up* Simply what I was looking for!

Solid base script, -get the job done!

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.

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!
