I'm hoping you can add mobile design abilities for 3.1! (sorry if this was mentioned before)

Yes, it would be better if there was a possibility to create websites for mobile devices.

But good Idea was to create a Mobile Site Version from finished Normalversion of a Side. - if you are ready and save project, then switch to Mobile Version Outfit..

I would love to see the option of creating a mobile theme.

Additionally, it would be awesome to have the single theme contain both versions with a device based automatic switcher.

One key element of this is to make it so you can edit the home page for mobile devices separate from the home page for regular devices. The layout and amount of content changes drastically.

Regarding responsive design, it seems like this is still too much of a drag on load time. It also seems to add extra challenges within laying out content. All and all I believe the best solution is a separate mobile website, and I'd love to be able to design these within Artisteer.

That doesn't make sense. A responsive design can have a completley different look for a mobile viewer. I created the following responsive design site using Artisteer and CSS3:

The mobile section is completely different and simple. It's quick to load because it only loads what's necessary.

IOS tech is for 'cool' applications. Responsive sites are for people who want to see their business information displayed fittingly on a mobile device. Its common sense to realize that responsive sites ARE the way to go for most people.

However, I would suggest a hybrid of the two in a case where a business owner needs a mobile application within a responsive design site. Notwithstanding, responsive sites are clearly the future.
