    Hello Lucy,

    Nice List! I was using “WPtouch Mobile Plugin” on one of my blog, but the problem is sometimes it fail to detect mobile device. Its a great plugin but with free version you cant do much.

    Hi Lucy,

    Welcome to Kharim’s blog.

    I’ve used all the plugins you’ve mentioned here in the past except Jetpack. While they are great, I found an issue with everyone – the major one being a failure to render the mobile view to mobile devices all the time.

    Accordingly, I found them excellent this second and horrible the very next!

    I decided: using themes that were responsive from the start. Since I changed to fully responsive themes, I have discovered that all devices are properly served. Then again, my server has less load by a plugin…a truly win – win situation 🙂

    Do enjoy the rest of the day!
