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This app was the first, but is now outdated and full of bug.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.

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.

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.
