Not working!!!

The "mobile" view does not send correct dimensions and therefore it does not receive mobile-optimized variant via media queries. Basically 2 iframes. LAME and not helpful at all!

No User Agent Support!?

Really want to make this app part of my workflow, but seriously… no user agent support? Not everything mobile-related is done with responsive stylesheets, guys. Please update ASAP and add support for user agents.

Liking it so far

It’s better to do one thing well than to do many things not so well.

This could be a Chrome Extension couldn’t it?

Just checking this out recently... Not too revolutionary really is it? I dig the idea and see real value with showing concepts and development to clients. The clean look of the browser itself is really nice. I WILL be using it in an upcoming meeting. For a dev tool, I totally can imagine this as a Chrome Extension or similar - with more options. This baby should be on GITHUB for more dev as a browser or html/css/js tool. I am laying down a 3. If there was a 3+ available, that would be my score. As an MVP it is nice. As a real dev tool, it is lacking for me atm.

Pretty Good For Frontend Devs, but app isn’t all the way there yet

The app is good and I really like being able to see both views at the same time. Sometimes it runs a bit slow and requires I refresh several times until the page loads properly. The other issue I have with it is that I can’t change the user agent of the panes. Overall good stuff and definitely looking for updates to get more functionality and faster syncing

Obviously needs work, but has great potential as a developer tool.

Doesn't look like it currently works while Charles Proxy is running. Would love that to get fixed. It does have an inspector, which is great…but I wish the window panes were more synched together. For things like real-time search results and ajax requests, it's be nice to have them both working at the same time. So if you used a search box in one window, the other one would also get your same keypresses and animations and whatever. Not saying that's easy (or even possible???), but if you figure that out, seems like we'd have a winner. Good job, keep it up!

Only one day in and it’s pretty great. Add Live Reload and it gets five stars.

This app looks great on the surface, but there a few key factors we're missing here to make this a dual development platform. First, the ability to control both views with one inspector. Changing CSS in one doesn't affect the other. Second is user agents. Without the ability to change them, the left pane is nothing more than a smaller window. The promise here is much greater than the delivery. Hope you guys have more planned, because I'm $5 down and back to flipping tabs in Chrome.

Awesome idea, but I look forward to improvments

This is such a great idea, especially for those of us who build web sites. It's great to see the two views side-by-side, and the simplicity is fantastic. There are issues, though. 1. It needs some level of control over the width of the mobile pane (the scrollbar takes up space, throwing things off, and it's crucial to be able to check different widths) 2. Being able to limit the height of the mobile pane would be nice too, so that one can check where the fold is 3. Width X Height is standard, but dimensions display as H X W 4. No tabs, boo For the dimensions, hopefully they'll add some presets that match common screen widths (e.g. 320w, 1024w, etc.). Even better would be the ability to define your own size settings. Good start, and I look forward to the next version.

The first version was great, but the latest updates have cemented it as a key app in my workflow. The ability to quickly see what your site looks like at different sizes had made development more efficient by an order of magnitude. I used to dread making a site responsive, but now it’s a pleasure.
