Equally, is it possible to force the IconX single sermon view to use only a SINGLE column?

Finally, my website has over 30% traffic from mobile devices, which I think is the average now world-wide. So probably all the websites running SermonSpeaker have something around that (I think the actual US average is 20%), and SermonSpeaker doesn't display very well without modification on mobile devices (in most cases). For that reason, I think it would be great if SermonSpeaker Options included the option to specify different layouts and especially columns depending on device.

I think in each layout I did, I used such unique classes so you should be able to adjust the layouts to your needs.
You can use the development tools (F12) almost every browser has included to see those ids and classes. With these tools (or Firebug in Firefox) you can click on an element and it will show you the selected HTML code with all CSS formats applied to it. Quite helpful for changing websites.

I agree that depending on the template the output may look bad on mobile devices. However the trend I see is that mobile devices have more and more standard browsers which are capable of showing a normal webpage without issues. Also the displays get bigger and bigger every month, even iPhones ;)
Now if we look at Joomla 3.0, it will include the Twitter Bootstrap. This is basically a framework for CSS which is built for "responsive" design, which means the page should adjust itself for display on mobile devices. My next plan is to create layouts which are built on this framework.

What I will not do is include logic to detect devices and adjust layouts depending on it. The main reason is that this would be a big task and I have not the time for this. Another reason is the way how Joomla works: This is something a template (or a plugin) should take care of, not a component. If every component would do such things, you would end up with an unique solution for every extension which would result in a nightmare for you. Better have the logic in a single place, like the Gantry framework or Mobile Joomla
