Mobilepress means business

When I purchased my humble Nokia 6234, I was totally in love with the little bugger and thought just about everything I could load on it was cool. Opera mini, the GMail app, several IM clients … just about anything and a whole new world of connectivity opened up for me.

The squad of geniuses at younique has just turned my whole world on its head though. I can now see my blog and all its content on my mobile phone in a whole new way – this is made possible by the most awesome of awesome WordPress plug-ins ever … mobilepress. I could always see my site of course, but it never loaded this fast (not even in Opera mini on 3G). This is one must activate power plug-in for every WordPress blog.

As soon as I have a moment, I am hacking myself a stylesheet for the plug-in for sure.

One note though (and I’ll check the CSS spec to be sure that it is supported on mobile browsers, though I can’t think why not): I would build in a CSS class for images that re-sizes the image to the browser window width (height should adjust proportionately) – I had to scroll sideways to view the full width of the image in my previous post. I think it is also safe to assume that the plug-in will remain a work-in-progress, but jolly well done in any case.

  1. Jayx, thanks for all the kind words. Image resizing is one of our priorities, it was meant to make the first release, but we decided to hold it off until we were happy with the code and ensure everything else was stable.

  2. Hey Jayx,

    great post dude, yeah I agree, MobilePress is the best.

    It’s great to know it came from South Africa with love ;-)
    Yeah the image resize addition would be great. I actually mentioned this to Tyler the other day already. we found a small bug while I was installing MobilePress on my blog, I must say the team of Younique and Project Wolf responded fast to the bug and within like 15min there was a new updated version on the site, this tells me only good things about the MobilePress team and I can’t wait to see their future projects. Good work guys. Keep it up ;-)
