Pro users: Be very careful with Version 4 of WPTouch
By , for WP 4.3.1

I have been using WPTouch Pro version 3 (3.9) on my site and it was working very well. WPTouch is an excellent product and I have gotten great responses from support staff with previous issues.
To address an new problem re particular mobile devices, tech support at WPTouch suggested moving to version 4. This version is markedly different than version 3 in terms of settings controls and makes use of the WP Customizer for mobile theme changes. In my case, the mobile themes were not displayed in the Customizer and an inadvertent keystroke resulted in changes to the desktop theme that could only be fixed thru restore of a backup.
So, my advice to Pro users contemplating version 4 is make a full and complete backup (offsite) of your website before proceeding.

Why not just use a responsive theme which is mobile ready? Please enlighten me. I've NEVER had any luck with a mobile switchers, which I'm guessing this is.

Work well enough
By , for WP 4.2.2

I got the free 3.7.6 version and modified the core files for better suit my needs, I have had the need to re-edit all my posts for show desktop on desktop and mobile on mobile though...
of course all nice feature have to be paid (recursive is absolutely a very bad idea) but afterward is a great plugin, a suggestion, if you get it to work, do not update it anymore.

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.

Limited options and overpriced.
By ,

Free version works really well, but very limited option and pro version is very costly!

**UPDATED rating to three stars for prompt replies in support forum**

Very comfortable but does not work well in all browsers
By , for WP 4.1

Excellent work on Android with Google Chrome.
In the default browser of LG-G3 - the menu does not work.
Fire Fox browser some kinds of titles disappear, and the back up button does not work.
And some old android devices ever has problems.
I'm sorry, because the plugin really good and comfortable.
I hope the next version will fix already, and I can put 5 stars for you.
Thank you.

No threaded comments

Please, the threaded comments are necessary.


Not bad
By ,

Easy to use and not bad but the default 'free' menu style is not intuitive for the user.
No options for your header image either, you will have to add some code for that.

Theme Shortcode not working
By , for WP 3.7.1

I use Elegenttheme's one of responsive theme. Theme's default render to mobile can't render that much nicely what Wptouch does. My problem is in the shortcode I'm using from Theme's default system (like buttons, tabs, info) these option can't render by Wptouch. Does anybody felt this problem with this awesome plugin and theme's default system and Is there any solution?

It's broken after update
By , for WP 3.5.1

After last update, it shows mobile interface even with desktop browsers. Mobile ON / OFF button is not working, either.
