It’s hard to imagine a WordPress world without Brave New Code and their much-heralded plugin, WPTouch, which at this very moment is set to cross the 4 million download mark probably by the end of the weekend I would imagine.
Incredible, and much congrats to the team behind it that have created a solid and growing business with their premium upgrade product of WPTouch Pro, which just saw version 3.0 get some serious upgrades.
In fact, here’s another interesting fact about WPTouch as a whole:
WPTouch is actually used by 31% of the top mobile-powered WordPress blogs out there:
WPtouch provides the best mobile experience for your site visitors but you don’t have to take our word on that; just ask the top mobile-powered WordPress blogs on the web which mobile solution is the best. In April 2012, 49 of the top 100 blogs were running on WordPress. Among those 49 sites, of the sites that employed a mobile solution, 31% used WPtouch or WPtouch Pro.
Not too shabby for a bunch of guys that were originally just trying to scratch their own itch, sotospeak!
These guys have been working together for some time and obviously love what they do, which really does matter in terms of the overall quality of their product.
In a recent overview video of their company, they share their story about how they first started and how they began to grow – I especially like how they tossed back a beer, hit the “on” switch, and then went to bed to wake up to a few customers:
Well done good sirs (although I’m not sure if I’d have another beer for breakfast!).
If what they are sharing is true then they have a million-dollar business and growing. With over 25,000 customers with their pricing it’s not hard to see where they are going as a team.
Congrats to the team and best of luck in the near and far future! It’ll be interesting to see how they continue to iterate and grow with a more heightened sense of awareness around mobile-ready sites and many WordPress themes having responsive technology build right-in.
Have you ever used WPTouch? I know it was a must-have on my list for a long time!
