HandHeld Plugin Review - WPHub

Every once in a while a WordPress Plugin comes along that is so great and genius it deserves special mention. Well today, we are pleased to introduce you to the first ever plugin released by none other than Elegant Themes. For quite a while, Elegant Themes has been our favorite choice for premium WordPress Themes partly because of the price (you currently get 65+ themes for just $39), but after the release of HandHeld today, we can happily recommend Elegant Themes all the more. (For more information on each theme, check out this Elegant Themes Review).

HandHeld is a plugin that will work with any theme, even if you are not using one from ElegantThemes. After you install and configure the plugin, HandHeld will work alongside your default theme, and will only be displayed to your mobile visitors.

HandHeld Review: This alternate design creates an enhanced mobile experience, and is only shown to your users when they visit your website on a mobile device. HandHeld will work beautifully on modern Android and IOS phones, and is coded in HTML5. HandHeld works with all your normal WordPress posts and pages, and all of your content is easily managed from within the plugin’s options page in the WordPress Dashboard.

It’s Optimized: HandHeld is optimized for the mobile viewing experience. The design is responsive, which means it will easily adapt to any screen size. It will also adjust when the screen is tilted into landscape orientation.

Ajax Love: The HandHeld homepage offers smooth ajax loading which makes the loading of new posts much faster. When browsing on a wireless mobile connection, it is always important to reduce the loading times of your website.

Unlimited Colors: You can easily adjust the background color of the theme from within the plugin’s options page. The background is CSS based, which means you can change it to any color value without having to adjust any images.

Price: Now for the fun part. HandHeld is included in the standard Elegant Themes membership. Yes, you heard me right. This is not some upgrade or pricy add-on. You get complete access to the HandHeld WordPress Plugin PLUS all 65+ Premium Themes PLUS the popular Support Forums PLUS all the other goodies that come with being an Elegant Themes member. All for the insanely low price of just $39. Again, that is not the price of the plugin by itself (although it is worth much more) – this is the price of the Elegant Themes Club which gets you access to everything! They also just released a Developer license that allows you to use all 65+ Themes and now this new mobile plugin on an UNLIMITED number of sites (even client/customer sites) for just $89.

At the end of the day, there is absolutely no better deal in all of WordPress than Elegant Themes. What we’re even more excited about now is that Nick and his team are branching out to WordPress Plugins and specifically Mobile WordPress Plugins so as to make sure you have the latest and greatest in WordPress technology.
