OpenCart Mobile Template

Hello

I have an OpenCart 2 store with a responsive template but I do not think the design is ideal for mobile. I would prefer to server a different template if user is using a mobile device (not tablet just mobile) but not send them to a mobile version of the website.

There is a an extension I think does what I want (http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=5125) but it is only for opencart 1.5 and I am using 2.0.1.1.

I would like to create a separate folder in catalog/view/theme called mobile and then the script determine if the user was using a mobile device and if so use that template and if not use the custom template in my settings. Is this possible?

I am also worried about the large number of extensions I have installed and if that will clash and also the cache through opencart and VQmod.

Some advice will be much appreciated on the difficulties or possibility of this.

Many Thanks

OK Thank You. I have a responsive design but I don't think this is ideal for mobile devices because you end up making concessions with each design. Just my personal opinion.

I did not see Omtex and this works perfectly for what I wanted, I think.

Thank You
