singular free template is fugly
By , for WP 4.2.2

It was easy to set up... but most of what anyone might want is blocked out for the pro version. The only template open to free use is really ugly. I hate these bait n switch type developers... make it seem free but really nothing useful is free at all. If it isn't useful and free, then don't call it free. I wish wordpress would get wise to this and create some criteria for what can be put out there as free... the rating system doesn't allow for that. I know developers have to earn a living, but there is free stuff out there for a reason too, right? I'm not too cheap to pay when I can pay... but I can't do this work enough to make much and I tend to help out non profits who can barely pay me anything.

So I find people like these guys ruins it for everyone. Dilutes down good resources for those of us who can't afford much.

Poor support
By , for WP 4.2.2

Authors have 'gone dark' after a critical error surfaced upon release of a new version. Like me, many are left with no mobile version of their site and no way to revert to the previous WPtouch version. Sad...

WPTouch Pro Shortcodes Don't Work
By , for WP 4.2.2

I have been using WPTouch Pro for the last year or so and have not had any problems with it. Recently, they came out with a new version that broke the shortcode support for my inFocus theme. Shortcodes worked fine with WPTouch Pro Version 3.7.7. They no longer work with this theme in Version 3.7.9 or 3.8.1.

I contacted WPTouch support to get the problem fixed. After 24 hours all I got was a response that the shortcode function does not work with all themes, given the differences on how themes work.

I then asked for some documentation that I could pass along to the theme developers on how the WPTouch Pro handled shortcodes, so that my theme developers could make any changes necessary to get it to work with WPTouch Pro. I got absolutely no response to this.

The support provided for this paid plugin is definitely subpar (if that) compared to what I have seen from other WordPress commercial suppliers.

I'm not a big fan of responsive themes (I personally believe that a mobile site needs a lot of customization to be effective). WPTouch's days seem to have passed. Does anyone have any better options?

Loading next posts does not work
By ,

This app was the first, but is now outdated and full of bug. For instance, loading next posts does not work... no point paying for such app. You'll find equivalent fee app which are ligher and more stable.

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 only 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.
