Pro only maybe
By , for WP 4.2.4

It should be said from the start that PRO ONLY it's worth it, free it's useless.

Didn't work for me
By , for WP 4.2.2

Took a very long time to install - more than 5 minutes. Then I kept getting a message saying "Help us out, click here" - or something like that - and I'd click, and nothing would happen. Came to the support site and saw all the problems - some seem to be major issues - decided it's not worth the trouble for me.

Might be worth trying out if you have a test site - but seems buggy.

Menus not working
By ,

I bought the pro version for $50. If I load my default custom theme on your plugin, when the navigation menu is selected on an iPhone everything just disappears.

Your other themes seem to fix this issue for the menu, but it doesn’t only change the theme on mobile devices, it changes the theme on my full website too.

So It seems like I can either use my theme an not have any menu, or dump my theme for one of your canned themes and lose my theme on my regular website.

The support email doesn't work, I get my emails returned.

I’m not sure what to do, but if this is not going to be compatible with my site, I’d really like my money back.

Terrible
By , for WP 4.2.2

Don't waste your time with this...Absolutely terrible. Screws up your administration page — it gets stuck on the plugin page. Extraordinarily amateurish. Should not be allowed. Man if your stuff is not ready to put up...DON'T PUT IT UP...or at the very least warn people that it's wonky and in early beta.

Support is terrible
By , for WP 4.2.1

Don't know what is wrong with the person who developed this plugin.

I've asked if this plugin is able to work with WP Super Cache and I got this weird answer: "It is compatible with W3 Total Cache.".

I didn't ask about W3 Total Cache...

very bad:((

very bad:((

way too many mistakes
By , for WP 3.9.2

When installing plugin first at all I though it was quite good. But managed to use it only for 1 month because it gives more errors then actually works. One of the worst things, all the sudden it may display mobile version for desktop users and I lost quite many visitors because of that. Looks like plugin is not developed any more also support somewhat non existent

P.S looks like it is a time to say AMEN to this plugin.

Not worth the trouble
By , for WP 3.6

Has no effect except for breaking the admin dashboard rendering it useless. No useful instructions found, once enabled it has to me manually disabled by editing the database as the dashboard is effectively gone.
Also, having read the comments about unexpected (unwanted) ads and opened up the themes to see code I have decided to bin it for good.
Better luck next time - though there won't be a next time for me.

Stay Away
By ,

Not only did it not work, it has caused my blog page to disappear and it's put several lines of code visible to all on my other pages at the top of the pages. This plugin is a disaster. Now I need to pay my consultant to fix this mess.

Terrible Ads
By , for WP 3.5

All the sudden, there are ads on my mobile site. Boo. It is not clearly stated that there will be ads shown unless you pay for the upgrade.
