After Kyle Ledbetter left JoomlaPraise a while ago to start TapTheme, he's been busy building admin and mobile templates for Joomla.
His latest offering is the TapTheme Android template for Joomla. The template gives the user a customized experience when surfing your site from an Android phone.
Using a free plug-in, the template is automagically loaded when visited by an Android handset.
As far as I know, this is the first Android Joomla template available.
User interface expert
Kyle is involved in the Joomla UX (User Experience) group over at people.joomla.org where he's working on the admin interface for Joomla 1.7. The TapTheme Android template shows that he's been working on user experience. It's cool to use and actually works equally well on iPhone as on Android handsets.
