New plugin updates, the three millionth download of WPtouch, and the unveiling of our new logo were just a few of the stories we were proud to share with you over the past year.
1. Three Million Downloads of WPtouch
We began 2012 with a celebration of the 3,000,000th download of our flagship plugin WPtouch and, as the year draws to a close, it looks like we may see the 4,000,000th WPtouch download in the not-too-distant future.
2. WPtouch Used By 31% of Top Mobile-Powered WordPress Blogs
WPtouch provides the best mobile experience for your site visitors but you don’t have to take our word on that; just ask the top mobile-powered WordPress blogs on the web which mobile solution is the best. In April 2012, 49 of the top 100 blogs were running on WordPress. Among those 49 sites, of the sites that employed a mobile solution, 31% used WPtouch or WPtouch Pro.
