Mobile UI Switcher

The Mobile UI Switcher plugin allows a different user interface to be specified to be used when a user appears to be accessing the site via a mobile device (smartphone, tablet, etc).

The plugin currently supports switching to separate user interfaces for the following devices and platforms:

  • All mobile devices as a whole
  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • All iOS devices as a whole
  • Android
  • Windows Phone 7
  • Windows Mobile
  • BlackBerry OS
  • webOS
  • Symbian
  • Bada


CWIS doesn't come with a mobile user interface, so one specific to the site would have to be created for this plugin to be of any use. Please refer to the developer documentation distributed with CWIS for more information on creating a new user interface. It is available from the Developer Support section of the System Configuration page in CWIS.

Additionally, the Mobile UI Switcher plugin doesn't switch the user interface based on the size of the screen of the mobile device, i.e., smartphone vs. tablet. CSS media queries should be used instead. The exception to this is for iPhone and iPad users: a separate user interface can be selected for each device.
