Should I use WordPress for my business website?

As of 2011, Joomla now powers more than 5% of the entire internet. But, WordPress is a much more commonly known CMS and companies are often puzzled over the differences. Is WordPress a good solution for a business website?

Warp6 comes with a dedicated theme for mobile devices so you'll get the best browsing experience on the go. Warp6 supports all mobile browsers which use the WebKit engine like the Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and Google Android devices. And yes, we also support the iPhone 4 and its new retina display.

The Warp6 mobile theme layout is clean and slick using all the goodies of HTML5 and CSS3. You won't find any unnecessary images or bloated markup. Thanks to CSS3 - all is done with web gradients, box-shadow and all the other cool toys that CSS3 brings into play. For example we make use of the hardware accelerated CSS3 animations for all our nifty effects, this guarantees fast and smooth animations. So you'll get not only a nice interface but also a mobile optimized layout with a compact size.

Warp6 Mobile Theme

Most of our client base relies heavily on online marketing and have a real desire for compatibility with iPad, iPad2 and iPhone devices. Previously, we've had to install third-party applications to generate mobile themes - which can be tricky and nearly always results in some sacrafice of functionality. Thanks to YooTheme, our toolbox has expanded and we are now able to offer native Mobile Themes that not only match the desktop template in look and feel - have fully controllable and customizable menus, logo and modules.

Joomla powered and brilliant no matter how you look at it, the Warp6 iPhone 4 Retina display uses the WebKit Engine to produce a mobile display custom made for high-definition mobile viewing.  How does this effect a company website? Consider that, even recently built Mobile Themes for Joomla will appear blocky and pixelated on a high resolution screen such as the iPhone 4. In addition, the Retina display offers four times the contrast ratio of previous models, so whites are brighter, blacks are darker, and everything is more beautiful.

By developing pixels a mere 78 micrometers wide, Apple engineers were able to pack four times the number of pixels into the same 3.5-inch (diagonal) screen, your eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels. Which means Text in books, web pages, and email is crisp at any size. Images in games, movies, and photos pop off the screen. And everything is sharper.

Of course, with Warp6 we believe in the freedom of choice. Thats why we added a button that let's you switch between the mobile and the Warp6 desktop themes as you choose. Be as excited as we are, and to all mobiles.. here we come!
