A good Mobile WordPress Theme makes your WordPress site a tasty experience to the immense and growing amount of people visiting websites using smartphone and tablets while not affecting the experience for users with traditional browser.

Today, more and more people are visiting your website using a mobile device. We just release a m.tripwiremagazine.com as well that you are encouraged to give a try. Due to the small screen sizes, the viewing experience when visiting a normal website can be awkward and nearly impossible if your eyes are not hawk quality. HandHeld mobile WordPress theme solves this problem by serving your mobile visitors an alternate design that has been optimized for the small screen. HandHeld works in tandem with your normal theme, and is only used when the plugin detects that your visitor is using a mobile phone. The way that the world is consuming the internet is changing as more and more people begin to use their smartphones to browse the web. This introduces a problem for webmasters as their websites (which have been built for large desktop screens) create an unpleasant browsing experience on handheld devices. The new HandHeld mobile WordPress theme from ElegantThemes fixes this problem by providing you with a theme that has been built specifically to enhance the mobile experience. In order to preview the live demo, you will need to visit the demo here or on your mobile phone using a QR reader to access the demo site (see below).

You can view the preview HandHeld mobile WordPress theme here:


HandHeld is a WordPress plugin that works alongside your normal theme, serving an alternate layout to your mobile visitors. This alternate design creates an enhanced mobile experience, and is only shown to your users when they visit your website on a mobile device. This means that HandHeld will work with any website, even if you are not using an Elegant Theme. The design is also fluid and responsive, which means it will work great on any size phone and will also adjust to landscape mode when the phone is rotated 90 degrees.

Also check the tripwire magazine mobile (m.tripwiremagazine.com) version and use the QR code to get easy access. Once you have your own mobile site you can create free QR codes at QR Stuff for your business cards etc. I used this service to create the code below.
