In Detail

Mobile web testing is currently a really time consuming and cumbersome process as there are no direct debugging tools available with mobile web browsers. Since mobile devices vary so much it is important to ensure that your web page looks as intended across the multiple mobile devices that you are targeting for your audience. Edge Inspect is a perfect tool for web developers and designers who are developing for mobile devices, allowing them to simultaneously test on numerous devices in real time as they develop without learning anything new.

"Instant Adobe Edge Inspect Starter" is a practical, hands-on guide that provides you with a number of detailed steps, which will help you to get started on testing and previewing all your mobile web projects on multiple mobile devices.

This book starts with an introduction to Edge Inspect and will take you through a number of clear and detailed steps needed to set up a working installation, and get up and running with testing your web pages on mobile devices.

You will also learn why traditional ways of testing mobile web applications are not very helpful and how Adobe Edge Inspect overcomes it.

We will learn about remotely inspecting and previewing mobile web pages on a targeted device and directly see the changes taking place on the device itself. We will discuss in detail about creating our very own simple mobile web application, running it from a local server and testing it across mobile devices.
