  1. Hi Ammar,

    I have new to this blogging world and have tried up setting various mobile plugins like wptouch, wordpress mobile pack and duda mobile but none of the plugins help me display images on my mobile site. Please suggest a good plugin that will display images properly on my mobile site.

    1. Did you tried built in feature of jetpack?

      It’s wonderful mobile plugin. BTW, which images are you trying to show on mobile?

  2. There are so many mobile devices and as many operating systems, it is simply impossible to keep them all in mind. I would like to turn things around and ask the mobile market to create a standard platform because it is currently unworkable.

  8. Hi Sarmad,

    Yes – I have been using wordpress for quite a long while now. And with the excellent applications (and onsite plugins for that matter) it has just become that much easier and powerful, especially if you are mobile and have a need to update the dashboard (and much more) on the go.

  9. I’ve been using WP Touch mobile version plug-in and it loads fast for handheld device users. Mobile version of the website is one of the best factor for reducing the bounce rate.

  14. If you are involve in online marketing then one thing you should do you should has been updated all those kind of plug-ins which mentioned in this post then it would be prove much beneficial for you and your business as well.

    1. Infact most of the plugins are used on many blogs and some have not been updated but i have selected those that are good features so you can use which is updated …but all are working:)
