This past year we launched our WPtouch Pro Tips Central blog series; our weekly posts featuring WPtouch Pro-powered sites built and maintained by designers, developers and site owners like you. Since our first Tips Central post in August 2012, our experts have provided tips for 21 sites including our very first WPtouch Pro Top Site award winner, CigarDojo.com!
Below are three of the top tips from our 2012 Tips Central posts. Read our experts’ recommendations and find out how easy it can be to add these enhancements to your WPtouch Pro site.
Note: Links to support documentation are available exclusively to current WPtouch Pro customers who are logged into bravenewcode.com.
TIP #1 – Customize styling with CSS
In addition to the styling options in the WPtouch Pro admin panels, styling can be adding through a WPtouch Pro child theme. In combination with an inspection tool such as the inspector available in most browsers or Firebug, your mobile theme can be made to be a visual extension of your desktop theme by customizing colours, fonts, and more.

TIP #2 – Complete the iOS Web-App Experience
WPtouch Pro offers a one-click method to offer your visitors a native app-like experience. In addition to the many options available, you may also choose to add a custom home screen icon and startup screens for a variety of devices. A custom icon and startup screens are great ways to emphasize your brand while your site content loads.

TIP #3 – Enable iPad Support
WPtouch Pro also offers one-click support for the iPad. Your iPad theme is a separate mobile theme that can be customized independently from your “basic” mobile theme if you want even more control over your mobile experience.
