Web development tools for iOS.

Inspect is a web inspector for iOS that provides desktop-class developer tools, right in the app. No need for remote debugging, connecting to a desktop, proxies, or remote systems.

Included are:
- JavaScript console.
- HTML element inspection and editing (with live preview).
- CSS inspection and editing (with live preview).
- View element details: CSS rules, JavaScript properties, dimension statistics, and more.
- Open files and folders from other apps (like Working Copy), or from iCloud to test locally.
- Network panel, displaying page headers and XHR requests.
- Responsive design tools: View your site with a variety of mobile and desktop sizes and orientations, including support for custom sizes and user agents.
- Cookies, local storage, and session storage inspector and editor.
- Resource graph.
- View raw page source.
- Control over browser operation: disable JavaScript, cache, and clear cache and cookies to test various operations and states.
- Save a screenshot of your site, including the ability to save the full page.

I sit at work all day debugging on 3 large screen monitors. I chuckled a bit when I first saw this app but seriously, WOW! The mere fact that I can’t inspect a nodes box model, change some css properties, sort/analyze network requests, view/edit local/session storage is pretty ridiculous for a phone app. These guys did a phenomenal job incorporating webkits’ debugging capability’s into a small screen. Although I laugh at the idea of actually using this on my iPhone, I could see it being actually useful for those on an iPad. That being said, actual developers probably don’t own iPads but rather surfaces or chrome books because Apple won’t expose runtimes or compilers on their mobile or tablet devices... hence why you can’t set breakpoints in scripts in this app.

Some of the panels & windows can be a little finicky operating but considering the capabilities of this app I’d find it hard to believe anyone could do it better. A nice feature would be a json/js beautifier when viewing in sources tab. Keeping in mind that the compiler is off limits, I would think it’s definitely possible to run scripts through a static syntax highlighter for easy viewing.

Based on my first 10 minutes, color me impressed. As a front end developer who spends a great deal of time debugging in Chrome & Firefox web inspectors, I found it intuitive and useful. Was able to successfully run a simple jQuery method in the console and toggle CSS attributes exactly like in a desktop browser.

Some less than intuitive behaviors I observed: unexpected pinch-to-zoom action (the whole viewport frame would shrink rather than just the page), couldn’t scroll the page in Inspect mode, and there was some Line 0 script errors w/o details. Any of these could be due to my lack of experience with the app but they seemed like they could be more obvious, if so.

Regardless, I consider it worth the cost as a quick and easy way to do some debugging on iOS (I tried it on iPhone Xs, which made everything crowded, but entirely useful in a pinch.)

This app is exactly what I have been looking for.

I will be giving a more thorough review at a later time but I wanted to immediately provide a comment here to express my views on this app.

This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Needless to say, an iPad will not replace a laptop/desktop when it comes to web development but man does this app provide me the extra bit of convenience I need to view a page source, execute functions from within the console, and jam out a bit of css here and there on existing or new elements!

There are times when I cannot be whipping out a laptop just to do these little bit of “testing and poking” and I have always been bummed that such an app like this did not exist (or so I thought).

To the developer(s):
Please implement a way for me to obtain a selector for a chosen element, similar to how in Google Chrome we can right click > copy > copy selector (or JavaScript path). Also, can you provide me a way to view the “Elements and console” in the same panel?

Your app is already a 5 star app, I love it. If you could implement the above two things, then this would really be more than I could have hoped on an iPad (without using Jump, Chrome RDT, MS RDT to connect to my desktop).

Thank you so much for coming up with this app. I do hope you find this review helpful.
