I want to be able to display a website exactly as it would on different devices like an iPad. I have found several sites and programs (ipad peek/ adobe device centeral) but problem is that they don't do the stuff I really want.

for example iPad will reformat phone numbers and change how HTML displays. I want to be able to emulate that.

any ideas?

  • ipad-emulator.com doesn't work? No idea how faithful it is, granted. The Apple SDK is the best you'll get though, if you have a Mac.

    @SirTapTap: ipad-emulator.com is just an iframe, the back/home buttons are just decoration.

  • Just thought I'd suggest, I didn't have any comparison since I don't own one.

The only way I know to truly simulate an iOS device is to register as an apple developer and download the iOS SDK. It comes with an iOS simulator that will faithfully simulate both the iPhone and the iPad.

You will of course also need a machine running OS X, as the SDK cannot be installed on a windows machine.


I've also used http://www.testiphone.com/

It's not fancy, but I like that you can change the orientation of the device.
