Fully tested: iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and even desktop browsers

HERO works alongside your existing desktop theme

HERO works alongside your existing desktop theme and can easily be shown to your mobile and/or tablet visitors only.

Install as a web app (use your own splash screens and icons)

As a part of the theme’s default functionality, HERO can be installed on your iOS device as a web app. Upon arriving on your site, a handy prompt alerts your visitor to add the site to their Home Screen, meaning your site will be just a single tap away.

You can also add your own custom icons and splash screens that the web app will make use of, as illustrated by the included default images below:

HERO comes with a customized version of PhotoSwipe, the popular touch-enabled gallery system, which integrates absolutely seamlessly with WordPress. Let your visitors swipe, pinch and zoom their way through your images!
