Top Ten Mobile WordPress Themes
As web browsing becomes more and more dominated by mobile devices it makes sense that we’re developing websites with mobile users at the forefront of our minds. In fact, more and more websites are now being developed with a mobile-first approach, rather than just a mobile-friendly approach.
Today we’ve rounded up ten mobile WordPress themes that you can use in your upcoming web design and development projects. These themes start at $24 and offer full customisation and functionality, including sliders, contact forms and SEO optimisation.
AURA Mobile Theme is created with a fully customisable theme system. Aura has a easy to use mobile blog system with post format support. Also includes custom portfolio, gallery, video and SoundCloud support. You can insert unlimited category and menu items, as well as multiple colour variations.
Mobilize is a touch optimised mobile WordPress theme built on jQuery Mobile and is loaded with features. The homepage has a touch optimised responsive slider with 24 transitions (swipe with your finger!), optional captions, social icons and more. The interior features a touch optimised gallery, contact form, blog with featured images and featured videos, tons of shortcodes and more. Four colour schemes are included, and customising colours is a breeze with the built in theme options manager.
My Mobile Page V3$24
My Mobile Page V3 WordPress Theme is the third version of “My Mobile Page” WordPress mobile theme series. The WordPress version comes with a custom Ajax powered admin panel and users can customise the home navigation menu, adding and editing the icons and the numbers of pages to display. You can also create blog pages, photo galleries, portfolio sections with flexible images and videos.
Touch is the 4th in a series of mobile WordPress themes from Bonfire Themes and is intended for use on smartphone and/or tablet devices. Set it up as a secondary theme and display it only to mobile visitors, or set up a brand new WordPress installation; the choice is yours.
The mobiTheme WordPress theme can run straight out of the box with no plugins required to get it up and running. There are two built in widgets and a widget ready area to allow for greater expansion. The built-in twitter widget caches your twitter RSS feed and only refreshes every 60 minutes to avoid the twitter API call limit and to help keep your blog running quickly and smoothly on each and every page load.
Built using the Epsilon mobile framework, Moderner features six custom page templates, 22 shortcodes, a custom theme options panel and in-depth SEO settings.
Now features a fully functional Contact form, 400 different colour combinations and seven different post formats, as well as optimisation for Apple, Android and Windows devices.
Vibrant is super clean, light and was built with minimalism in mind. That said, the theme’s stand-out elements like the unique menu display, comment form and per-post/page custom header colours ensure it doesn’t look generic and is immediately memorable to the user.
Hero works alongside your desktop site and is ready for localisation. It features a touch/swipe gallery, multiple colour schemes and a wide variety of wholly customisable shortcodes, as well as comprehensive documentation for those who are new to WordPress.
Designed with smartphone and tablet devices in mind, Rogue can be used on a brand new WordPress installation or set up as a secondary, mobile-only theme on your existing WordPress site.
