Description

Adaptivity is an invaluable tool for developers and designers. Use it to visualize how Size Classes and margins for layout, readable content and the safe area look on real devices and how they change with respect to orientation, iPad multitasking and Dynamic Type size changes. This free version has reduced features.

What’s New

Version 9.0

DYNAMIC TYPE
• View the five system font widths (standard, condensed, compressed, expanded and extra expanded) on iOS 16.

If you find Adaptivity (B) useful, please rate or review it in the App Store, or recommend it to other developers and designers. This makes a huge difference to me and the future of the app.

Incredible tool for iOS devs

After using the free version for a bit, I happily upgraded to the paid version to get all the features across all my devices.

It is still generous that there is a free version even if features are limited compared to the paid version. The developer consistent puts out updates which I appreciate as changes occur in the Apple ecosystem.

Amazing work👍
