More and more people are using WordPress mobile themes because more people are viewing websites via their smartphones. Personally, I do just as much browsing with my iphone as on my laptop. As a result, there is an exploding niche of themes designed for mobile applications. Here are some of the best that we’ve found. If you like what you see here, you may also like our previous post about mobile phone blogging.
WordPress Mobile Themes
My Mobile Page WordPress Mobile Theme
My Mobile Page theme has some really cool features. It automatically detects resolution and adjusts accordingly, plus it comes with 5 different color skins. This theme also boasts being a “simplistic mobile theme” which seems somewhat redundant but I suppose it is accurate.
WordPress Mobile Theme
WordPress Mobile Theme by BlogOhBlog is about as simple as it gets. What’s more, it’s completely free!
Hybrido WordPress Mobile Theme
Hybrido is actually a full blown WordPress theme that comes with a bonus mobile theme to accompany. This is especially nice because your design remains continuous and similar across both browser types.
Mobius WordPress Mobile Theme
Mobius theme is one of the slickest WordPress Mobile Themes. It has a smooth interface and nice dark styling. It also comes with social media integration.
iWorld WordPress Mobile Theme
iWorld comes with 1o colors which leaves your options for implementation wide open. This theme was also specifically designed for iPhone and iPod Touch. I’m not sure what that means but sounds fancy.
SOFA iBloggr WordPress Mobile Theme
This theme is sweet, mainly because of the HTML 5 compliance, and widget support. There looks to be social media functionality built right in as well which is a huge bonus.
WP Touch 2.0 WordPress Mobile Themes
WPTouch is a premium theme, but the feature list suggests the $39 is worth it. Check your analytics. I bet more and more people are viewing your site with mobile web browsers. WPTouch is the final in this list of quality WordPress mobile themes, if you enjoyed this list, please share it. Or, leave your own suggestions for WordPress mobile themes in the comments below.
Minimalism is all the rage, especially when it comes to minimal themes. The themes coming out recently demonstrate a truly exemplary eye for design. A good theme is both functional and simple. It tends to have one predominant color throughout the site and a simple navigation system. Back in July, we described a number of Simple WordPress Themes which can also be a resource if you’re looking for your next un-complicated design.
However, simple does not mean boring. Minimal themes let the user navigate effortlessly throughout the site while keeping the user roped into the content. More aspects of minimal themes are single-page designs and single-column layouts. Whatever your fancy, consider some of these amazing themes.

Most people have probably heard of Yahoo Answers right? It’s a free service provided by yahoo that allows people ask questions and have other users attempt at answering them. The original poster then selects the best answer, and the user who made the suggestion gets credit. Users who answer lots of questions build up authority on the site.
It’s a cool concept and works really well. It also works really well at pulling in search engine traffic as there are many millions of search queries every day from people looking for information on questions they are trying to answer…”How to fix a squeaky door”, “how do I get rid of ants?”, “What is the Best WordPress Host?” etc…you get the idea.
How do I make Your Own WordPress Yahoo Answers site?
So if you’re reading this blog, you’re probably a fan of WordPress, and your now thinking: “How can I make my own Yahoo Answers WordPress site”.
One of our favorite WordPress theme sources has just released an amazing all in one solution to creating a delicious WordPress answer site.

So if you are looking for an idea for a new site, I think the idea of a WordPress Yahoo Answers site is a real winner. If you optimize it well for search engines with some solid backlinks, the site will run itself and your users will continue to create fresh content for you. Jump over to Elegant themes and check it out.
Tutorials are all the rage right now, especially WordPress Tutorials. I understand why. There used to be a plethora of posts like this one for a while. Many people still write posts like this: “100 amazing themes” and “50 creative logos”. They’re nice to look at, helpful and inspiring.
However the trend is definitely towards tutorials. Look at Envato’s newest marketplace as an example. And we at Pingable understand the trend. Tutorial posts are more helpful in a tangible way. Users can read a post and walk away with a real, measurable, helpful new skill set.
In light of this trend, we thought it would be nice to combine the two types of content. Here is a list of 25 extremely Helpful WordPress Tutorials.
