Is anyone using this? I tried the free version and everything works except the galleries. The mobile version just shows the page name but no actual galleries.
WPTouch plug-in with Flashlight?4 posts from 3 voices
I've tried it just a second ago on your side. ;-) It's a nice idea. So I tried it now on my side. The free version is not an option. When you take a closer look, you'll find shortcodes that the reader of your blog should not notice... In my case, several sites are missing in the menu.
Yesterday I decided, that I'll upload a small (not Wordpress based) "mobile website" with few images and a contact-page. That will be one a sub-domain, linked from the main side. Kind of a modern business-card-thing, nothing special.
Flashlight is "okay" (not good - see: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/somethings-do-not-display-correctly-on-ios-devices#post-45756 ) on an iPad, but nearly unusable on my iPhone (try to zoom :-( ). So that's tiny little extra-side is the best option - in my opinion.
Hey - you switched to Angular 10 seconds ago??
Ha ha. Yes. I am switching back and forth between Angular and Flashlight. Still undecided on which one I want to use.
I wouldn't expect full-screen themes like Flashlight to work especially well on a mobile device. When showcasing my photography, I want the best presentation possible - and that means a desktop (or laptop).
That said, I've been thinking a lot about mobile devices. What if I'm out and wanted to show someone one of my galleries? That's why I'm looking at Angular and the WPTouch plug-in for Flashlight. Some of the books from A Book Apart are good. "Responsive Web Design" and "Mobile First" in particular.
One thing I'm concerned about is when I create a gallery in Flashlight, it doesn't transfer to Angular, and vice-versa. The first image appears, but not the rest. Perhaps this is a WP thing.
Just a warning. I couldn't get WPtouch pro to work with Corona or Abundance. I'm not sure if it works with Flashlight but because it uses the same framework chances are high that it won't work.
