Not so good and no support
By , for WP 3.9.6

If you thinking in buy a pro version expecting some support, forget about it. The developers just lure you to buy it, but no support is provided at all. The plugin work in some ways, but is not a must have. A lot of features you could just solve by having some lights from the authors, will never happen. I don't recommend them.

Good looks but unstable work
By , for WP 4.2.2

It looks good and helps with the site where homepage is built of widgets rather than a list of posts (Jetpack mobile theme doesn't work in this case). But the authors are probably only worried about luring you into the paid version.

Free version works poorly with WP Super cache and All in One WP Security plugins (the obly ones that might affect WP Touch). It often changes back to desktop on mobile. And now it also changed from desktop to mobile view on my desktop for no particular reason. Switching to a desktop version doesn't help.

Pictures are not shown
By , for WP 4.2.2

Good plugin, good theme. That is what I wanted but in 2 weeks after running all my pictures have not been shown 3 days now. What happened? Thank you for any help.

Garbage
By , for WP 4.2.2

When I found that the mobile version was showing on my desktop I knew this was a garbage plugin.

If you have a site designed to make a living then this plugin is best to be avoided.

Google Search Mobile Compatibility SAVED THE DAY
By , for WP 4.2.2

Google's changes for Mobile Friendly failed my most important sites. Luckily, I remembered I had installed something on a test site that was "Mobile Friendly".

Tested that site here:
https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

It passed. So, I backed up my production sites, installed the WordPress WPTouch Mobile Friendly plugin and all of them passed Google's test for being mobile compatible.

Had to use Webmaster tools to check the latest results to see the change on a couple of sites but man, this plugin saved the day.

Disappointed
By , for WP 4.1.4

I spent a few minutes configuring all the option, but the mobile site came out looking really bad - shortcodes everywhere, no slider, very bland appearance. And when you click on a menu link to a page (that should exist) you get "The requested URL was not found on this server.".

I understand the Pro version *may* solve these problems, but the early signs aren't good so I will be uninstalling rather than upgrading.

(In case it helps the plugin author, these problems were with the Progress theme from Temash Design.)

Worthless
By ,

very unstable plugin. After few minutes, it jumps automatically to desktop version on mobile. Seems the author has made this crap intentionally to increase the selling of pro version.

Works really well right out of the box
By , for WP 4.2.1

This is a fast, no-nonsense way to get a touch-enabled site. Of course you have be considerate of how the content on your pages is displayed. If you have divs with manual widths specified, chances are the mobile layout isn't going to be flawless. But if you design with resizable elements, this just plain works. I only made a few modifications to the default configuration and my site looks great on mobile!

Does its job, customizing is a hassle
By , for WP 4.2.1

It's easy to install, easy to configure and just does its job if you want a quick mobile site.

The German translation is a little whacky and differs from the WordPress one, with showing comments as "responses", I don't really like that. I even send them a new one a while back, but they never did anything with it. To be fair, that can be changed with editing the .po file with poedit but has to be done with each upgrade.

The same goes for the themes. The default ones are great but as soon as you start to customize little things you'll have to do it very often, because this plugin is updated every few days. You can choose to just upgrade it and keep the old version if you want, though.

Although I use it, I can't really recommend it. If you want to do a really custom mobile site, just get a responsive design or a theme switcher plugin which is way less effort to maintain in the long run.

No longer working
By , for WP 4.2.1

The plugin was working fine up until this afternoon. Now it no longer works even with the plugin update.
