iFolios is a WordPress template (or theme) that was built specifically for photographers (although I have referred non-photographer sites to it and it works just as well). It is a clean simple and large navigation and presentation of a website for handheld devices such as the iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, and Android.
Think of it as a mobile version of your website. It automatically detects if someone goes to your website on a mobile device and automatically redirects them to this “mobile version” of your site. This enables those with flash sites to have a visible version on a mobile device that does not support flash.
Our site is actually a traditional HTML site which we prefer for many reasons, but iFolios gives us a cleaner presentation for smaller screens.
They both have nearly identical content, it is just presented in a different format such that those on smaller devices will get a better user experience and to put it plainly .. larger images.
iFolios offers this template in three formats..
- For those who are tech savvy – A Self Install
- For those who are somewhat capable – an Assisted Install
- For those who just want to say “Make it so..”- A Full Service Install
All three (in my opinion) are priced very affordably and worth every penny.
Should you choose to do it yourself, the included step-by-step instructions are flawless… how many times have you ever been able to say that?!
So yes, I am a big fan of iFolios, and not just because I am featured on their home page.. They really make a good product and price it right! If you are looking for a great mobile solution for your website, check ’em out!
