Why You Need A Mobile Tester Once You’ve Completed Your Website

Of course, once you’ve finished doing all the recoding, transferring, or creating your own separate mobile pages, you want to make sure that they’re all working properly and look good on mobile devices. If you have a mobile device, tablet, or both you can go immediately to your website’s URL to see how it looks. But if you don’t own either, you may need to get a mobile test software or emulator.

Mobile test software is easy to get and usually it’s available as a web app within a standard desktop browser. But if you want to get a complete experience using mobile technology, there are emulators out there especially for Android that can open up websites and apps by simply entering them in. The following are some of the best solutions for testing your mobile websites:

  • iPad Peek

This app functions just like an iPad, and while you can’t go browsing into the iTunes or App Store with it, you can type in your website to see exactly how it would look on the screen. Apple has put up a lot of guards over devices running their operating system, and they’ve made it tough to find iPhone emulators, but this app is probably the best to use for getting a glimpse of their systems running a website. Similarly, there are some mobile check applets for browsers that can test a site’s code and feedback any errors they find in the code.

  • BlueStacks Android Emulator

This software is probably the best smartphone and tablet emulator you’ll ever find. You can basically do everything with this emulator from downloading and testing apps, to playing mobile-based games, and browsing your mobile-ready website to see if it’s up to par. The software does take up a lot of computer resources, so you’ll want to make sure you’re using it from a PC with a powerful processor and lots of RAM, but it is completely free and easy to use.
