Extended support for mobile devices (Mobile Skins)

Mobile devices (especially iPhone and Android devices) are getting more and more popular. In our wi-fi hotspots the usage of mobile devices are now more than 10 percent. So we thought we give full support for these devices by creating special skin versions for every skin which are optimized for mobile devices. Larger input fields, large buttons, etc.

Ok so here is the deal.

- Locations that are using default system skins will now automatically display the new, optimized versions of those skins when the user is connected with a mobile device (this is auto-detected). Your custom logos will also be there.

- Locations with custom skins are working as they worked previously, which means that the same custom skin will be displayed for users with regular computers and users with mobile devices. However you can create a mobile version of your custom skin.

For this the following steps are required:

1. Create a new skin based on a mobile version, then customize it.

2. Edit your original custom skin, you can find a new option there on the second line where you can set the mobile version for that skin, just select the one you created in the first step.

Hope you will like this great enhancement of the system and this will probably result a better user experience and more conversions on your sales.
