Hi guys! I was wondering if someone can advice me of a software to test mobile-friendly websites on Windows. i don’t have (since i don’t need it) a smartphone, and so far i’ve only tested websites for mobile phones by resizing windows according to standard screen sizes. I’d like to go a bit further. I know there is the iPhone SDK , with iPhone simulator, but, as I said, I’m on Windows.

So, any suggestion?

Thanks in advance :)

I’ve tried this service and it’s pretty good! http://www.browserstack.com/

But you should definitely get a smartphone for real testing, as no emulation gives you the real experience. You said that you don’t need a smartphone .. wrong! From the moment you started designing mobile friendly friends you needed one :D

Thanks! I was looking for a simulator-like thing, but this is a good alternative anyway :)

I didn’t say “buy an iPhone” :D

If you need to test touch events, then you definitely need a smartphone. If not, you can do well with your browser window anyway.
