WPtouch iPhone Theme

“With a single click, WPtouch transforms your WordPress blog into an iPhone application-style theme, complete with ajax loading articles and effects, when viewed from an iPhone, iPod touch, Android or BlackBerry touch mobile device.” Basically, this plugin will take your WordPress 2.7+ blog and check the HTTP headers to find out if the user’s browser is a mobile phone or iPhone, etc. Then, instead of serving up your normal theme, s/he is given a cool iPhone style interface to navigate your blog. It’s really quite cool and it takes care of some issues regarding small screen size browsing. It didn’t disable some of my plugins, however, which use javascript, (for example, the snow falling script) which seem to give the iPhone’s processor  a little bit of trouble (lots of math for that script). Over, I like it.
