According to a recent statistics about Internet usage trend,It is estimated that number of users accessing internet from Smart Phones and other mobile devices will outnumber the conventional computing devices within few years.
Through Google Analytics report for WPStuffs,I observed a steady increase in number of mobile devices accessing the blog through Mobile devices.When I compared the month December 2012 with March 2013,I found more than 2% increase in mobile devices usage.
From the reports above we have to accept the fact that Ignoring Mobile device is not at all a good idea anymore.So here I compiled some methods to make your WordPress blog Mobile Friendly.
Using Responsive WordPress Themes
Responsive themes are the recent trend in WordPress themes industry,The working behind this Web technology is really simple : Automatically resizing the web elements according to the screen resolution with the help of CSS.
Genesis Framework by StudioPress is one of the earlier themes framework to adapt responsive web design,Currently most of the Genesi child themes are already made responsive and Studiopress promises to release all future child themes with a responsive design.
Not only Genesis Framework you can find responsive WordPress themes on other premium theme directories like Themeforest,Woo Themes etc.
JetPack Mobile Theme
Jetpack Plugin by Automattic comes with a Add-on feature called Mobile Theme.The Mobile theme automatically converts your WordPress blog as a mobile website when users visits your blog from any mobile device.
