Hey everybody,

I was wondering if there is a way to test a javascript mobile app. To test a desktop app I use JSFiddle, which is create to get an idea of the look and feel of a desktop app. Is there anywhere, where I can post my mobile code and test it on my phone, to see how it looks?

Any help would be appreciated!

I use remote debugging along with Brower

Yes, but you need a MAC to get it all set up

I clicked reply too early in my first post.  Before I use remote debugging, I use the emulator in Chrome to get a sense how it will look on various devices

Then I use remote debugging if something is not working as expected or css is not doing its job

Hope they help

You can also try submitting the URL to your site to something like http://www.responsinator.com/ to see how it looks on various devices. It basically uses emulation to mimic what it would look like on the native device.
