With the onslaught of mobile computing I thought it was time to take ComTech into the fold. The website was designed for desktop viewing and didn’t cater for smaller mobile screens. So it was time to have a look at the available plugins for WordPress to see if anything could be done.
Enter stage left MobilePress. This little beauty detects when your website is being viewed by a mobile device and adjusts the page accordingly. Voila ComTech is mobile!!!
Next on the list was to sort out an App. Most mobile users I have spoken to would rather use an app than go online and browse through a webpage. So it was time to get one. One big problem. I can’t write code. I can fix a computer, build one from scratch and sort out software and hardware issues but write code – not a chance!!
Then I came across Conduit Mobile. Without having any programming skills you can design and publish a simple app for your business. You can also submit it to the Android Market and App Store (you will have to pay registration fees) if you so wish. I decided to go down the Blog feed route and the app is called ComTech News. Hopefully this will complement the traditional blog and drive more traffic to my site. I have already tried it on a Blackberry Bold 9780 and it works lovely (even if I do say so myself!!).
Here’s to going mobile!!! Anyone else going to join me?
