How I turned my blog into an app (without the app)

One of the hot topics right now is mobile content. A lot of developers are trying to figure out the best way to turn a complex media rich website into an app so visitors can use it on their handheld device. I've come up with a solution that is both device and software independent, and I'm surprised more blogs aren't using it.

A few weeks ago I changed to my current WP theme. I didn't draw attention to this at the time but I also added a theme switcher widget. One thing you might not know is that there are many free themes out there, including one called Carrington Mobile. I find it quite usable on my iPod Touch. I haven't tested it on other platforms yet, but I expect it to work fine.

P.S. If there is a theme you'd like or if there is a better free mobile theme, please let me know. I'll see if I can add it.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. WordPress.com has a mobile theme it puts up for everyone, if you check that option for your own blog. Been a while since I’ve been to the Apple Store to peek at my blog. Doubt it’s changed much.
