Blackmail You for Adsense
By , for WP 4.1.1

Great plugin! Works great! Easy setup and configuration!

But they basically blackmail you to purchase the Pro version for $59 if you're a webmaster that uses Google AdSense.

Extremely Inconsistent, No Support
By , for WP 4.1.1

At first, I thought it was working okay for one of my sites (a little inconsistent but not that big).

Then it slowly, hour by hour started producing the mobile page on regular computer browsers (Chrome, FireFox, and IE). My requests for support on their forum were ignored.

They have a paid option, but the inconsistency in the plugin and them ignoring me prevent me from having the confidence in them to take a risk with my money.

I should have paid attention to the other reviews that said the same thing.

Zero support for free... so why offer it?
By ,

The plug-in shows only my sidebar... but the "support" here is full of unanswered questions so I'm not expecting any help.

I won't buy the pro version because I have 20 blogs so that's $200 and no way to know if it works.

Here's the problem: HUGE waste of time trying this out. WP Touch Mobile: fail.

Free version looks nice, but it's broken
By , for WP 4.1.1

I've deactivated WPtouch Mobile Plugin and don't know when I'll try it again. I like the look and options of the free version, but it doesn't take visitors to my homepage, nor to my blog, which is one of the most important parts of the website.

Clean but no controls
By , for WP 4.1

It's a nice look, but it strips sidebar out. Adds a footer - but I have no idea where it got it from our WP theme. Offers no controls at all. Probably because there's a paid version. Their own WP site is a mess - can't click on resources at bottom, and can't even sign up! ??? Will probably turn it off, remove it. Too bad. Looks nice.

Opened my sites to attack
By , for WP 3.9.1

Not too happy.

I installed the patch for the recent vulnerability, had the silly notion I was safe (when are we ever? -- understood) and almost immediately was hit with a series of attempts to breach the sites on my server as well as suspicious activity in WPTouch folders and related files. Rather than go through it all again, I removed almost all instances and disabled the others. Perhaps time to go responsive anyway.

Presents wrong format to browsers
By , for WP 3.5.1

I initially liked the product, simple, works does what we need. Then I began noticing that wasn't getting the mobile version on my cell phone. It seemed to intermittently not be able to figure out what kind of browser was on the other end. Last straw is WPTouch began serving mobile format to PC browsers for no reason I can discern, just started doing it.

Buggy
By , for WP 3.5.1

I had trouble with the plugin not accepting some of the settings I chose. The footer text would not stay with the text I entered, and when I deactivated the plugin, it would not fully remove itself and my pages still show up in a mobile format. I wish I had never installed it.

i'm unimpressed
