Smartphone simulators

To test the mobile view functionality in SharePoint 2013, we needed some smartphone emulators. Here’s what we came up with…

This web-based iPhone simulator is quite nice: http://iphone4simulator.com/

For the iPhone, there’s also a commercial product which is easy to use and has a trial version. It can be found at http://www.electricplum.com/studio.aspx

For the Windows Phone, you need to download the SDK at http://dev.windows.com/en-us/develop/download-phone-sdk , which uses Visual Studio (2012) and the presence of Hyper-V. This emulator itself can’t run on a virtual machine (although we’ve seen posts that say VMWare 9 can do it).

For Android, check out http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
