Only one thing to say, and I honestly mean this, it is developers like this that make the difference in Joomla. I wanted to start a website business, dint know how, joomla taught me but such developers make the site awesome. I was so close to signing up for a FREE mobile component the catch being it will display an ad on my template just for making it mobile. An ad that might even direct traffic to a rival site if they want, I thought I was stuck but this little but mighty plugin has made the difference. I created a simple basic one-columned template that mirrored my current one but removed(by not defining them in index.php) some modules that weren't mobile friendly such as ones that call mootoools and javascript, and included some that are. Now what was left was to redirect mobile users to my mobile template, this plugin works like a charm, almost too simple to believe it, I made my site mobile in just 2 hours and now a page loads at 10% of original size and time with this plugin. JUST AWESOME. THANKS!!!

Tried this and when I set the plugin to re-direct my main site went blank. Noticed on the Wiki that a lot of people are having the same issue.
I am using 2.5.9 and installed the plugin at the last position as detailed in the documentation.

I've installed and activated, but it haven't worked. It's a good idea to change the template depending the user-agent. Please fix it!
