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.March 11, 2012 at 8:19 pm #67209
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.March 12, 2012 at 8:08 am #67211
