According to very respected research, it’s estimated that approximately a lot of people browse the Web via a mobile device. When those people view your site, are they seeing your site in the best possible format for their small screen? With the new Mobile Theme in Jetpack, you can be sure that they are.
Jetpack’s Mobile Theme displays your content in a clean, uncluttered interface, making it easy for mobile visitors to scan your site. We took special care to make the mobile theme as lightweight as possible to ensure quick navigation and fast loading times for those sometimes spotty mobile connections.
The mobile theme is opt-in, so you’ll have to manually enable it from the Jetpack dashboard. For more information, see the Jetpack Mobile Theme support page.
The mobile theme isn’t the only upgrade in Jetpack 1.8: we’ve included a great new “Top Posts and Pages” widget, and now, multiple users on Jetpack sites can connect with their own WordPress.com accounts. These new connections will enable exciting additions in future Jetpack releases such as integrating the WordPress.com Notifications system into Jetpack sites.
We haven’t just been adding feature after amazing feature; we’ve fixed some bugs too. Custom CSS has been improved, and the links in the Twitter widget have been corrected. For a complete list of bug fixes, see the changelog.
Update: Jetpack 1.8.1 has been released to address some issues with Jetpack 1.8.
