The Best Free & Premium WordPress Themes for Mobile Devices

  (by )

Due to the increasing popularity of smart phones and access to high speed mobile networks, more and more people are accessing websites via mobile devices.  If you want to make sure your WordPress blog or website displays and functions properly on your visitors’ phones, then you should consider using a theme specifically designed for mobile devices.

Many of these themes can be used in conjunction with your current WordPress theme, so the mobile theme will be used when someone visits your site using their smart phone, while your normal WordPress theme will be displayed when they’re using a PC or laptop.  Plus, the majority of these themes include multiple colour options, so they can be customised to match your existing branding.

    I’m thrilled about The WordPress Mobile Pack, it really simplifies things, and it is a bit cooler to have this application on your smartphone. And the greatest thing, is that it is free. Anyways, I’ve been browsing through your list of application for mobile devices , and I found new toys, and now can’t wait to ‘play’ with them.:D

    Wow, they all look great, thank you for these great themes! I guess the smartphone boom has given web designers much more work. 🙂

    Nice blog.
    Please don’t list prices on a .co.uk in USD when you go on to promote your web hosting in GBP. Completely irrelevant currency and an extremely negative UX.

    Some of those look really nice and for less than $30 are great value. I read somewhere that mobile traffic will take over desktop traffic in the next few years so its definitely something to start looking into.
