It’s a shame that WordPress didn’t know about the Wapple Architect Mobile Plugin as it provides much more functionality and works on every device in the world! The URL is http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wapple-architect/ – check it out and have a look at the screenshots to see what it can do.
It makes your blogs look better on iPhones (they match your web theme and branding rather than just look like a million other blogs), and makes your blog look great on phones that aren’t an iPhone.
For self hosted blogs, there is nothing better to mobilize your blog. It works better, has support for more handsets and makes your blog look better – no contest!
