    I've been using my mobile business, but I'm looking for a better way I can build mobile sites similar to how "domino's mobile site" looks on the iphone, and something I can use with wordpress. I want something where it show where when I add a page or post, it shows it updated on the mobile site.


    Any suggestions?

    Mobile site must look attractive yet simple to navigate and it must be easy to read the content at it.

    You may decide that it's more important to get a presence up and running on the mobile web now, and then tweak strategy and content in more detail later.

    From what I've read, somehow is better to just develop an app rather then a mobile site. It makes sense also since most smart phone users using apps more then actual sites when it comes to the internet.

    Well, it's a lot harder to code an app than a mobile website, secondly each major player (Apple, Windows, Android) all have their own markets (Some have developer cost to signup), and all have their own coding that they use, for someone selling to local businesses cost vs benefit, each platform that you have to develop for cost time, and time is money. So therefore it'll be too highly priced to benefit the company at all.

    Even if the price wasn't an issue, the next thing is, most companies you'll be selling to will have people searching for their business, not on an app market, but through search engines. An app on the Apple market won't benefit the business one cent if no one is searching for a 'boston ma spa' on it (the app market), but if the business' website comes up (through the search engines), the user can then be redirected to the mobile optimized website.

    Lastly, the great thing about mobile optimized websites, is they CAN be turned into a 'web app' as in a mobile user can download it to their home screen and access it with a click of a button, now it'll still require internet in some cases, but it is very similar to an 'app'.

    It may seem obvious - but there are LOT's of WP templates that have built-in, or are standalone, mobile optimized. Do a google search for 'wordpress mobile' - you'll likely be surprised how many great options there are relatively cheap.
