    Congrads on getting this necessary plugin into the community!

    I know this is much work…and I think ejunkie and others are nervous about this elegant plugin.

    One question…when can I use this on a wordpress mobile site?
    any plans to add ringtone support?

    Congrads again,

      Thank you for the support, Bob, I really appreciate it.

      The plugin is completely compatible with mobile sites. As long as your theme works on mobile, the plugin will work on mobile. I do have plans to build a mobile sales notification add-on or two, perhaps for text alerts of sales. I don’t know when it will be done, but it is planned.
