  • Great on iPad

    I find Inspect is great on iPad. On iPhone Xs it doesn’t work since when I try to paste or type in the url field the keyboard comes up and pushes the content up covering the url field. Super frustrating. If this is fixed, it’s a five star iOS app.
  • Essential app for web developers

    This app single-handedly unlocks bringing full frontend web development workflows to iPad. I use it constantly & am so grateful it exists!
  • Puts the Pro in iPad Pro

    This is an indispensable app for web development using the iPad. There are a handful of developers who care about power users on the iPad, and the developer of Inspect Browser is one of them. I love the developer features and how much is revealed in them. It’s very close to desktop level browser developer tools. I can’t imagine there’s a ton of money in developer focused iPadOS apps, but I hope it’s worth the time and effort of ongoing development. Losing this one would really hurt. I have two improvement requests: 1) I wish the console pane would show errors like resources not loading, etc, which it doesn’t seem to, and 2) I would like to see file sizes in either network or resources or both. Recently I was doing image optimization and I needed to be able to see which size images the browser was pulling down and how many kb those were.

  • Nice app, but missing a few features.

    Great app. It’s nice to have some form of web inspector on the iPad. I’m rating 3*, as it is missing a few common features. You don’t have the ability to “pretty print” JavaScript. I’d love to have a de-minifiy and de-obfuscate, using source maps (if available). I couldn’t find a way to set breakpoints or use step-by-step debugging. It’s great I can see the source code, but from a dev point of view, I can’t really edit JS on the fly. The Storage option is limited to cookies. I’d love to inspect Session, Local Storage, it doesn’t seem to show anything though. Having some insight to memory usage would be awesome.
  • 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.
  • Not quite there.

    Purchased this app to debug an issue for work that only happens on a physical iPad. Safari doesn’t show elements after a recent update so it was my hope I could use this. The tap to select does literally nothing but highlight the element. It doesn’t show where the element is in the dom, or give me any way to debug which is exactly what I needed it for. Complete waste of money. This is a work site so I can’t send it to the developers to find out what the issue is. Is there some trick to getting all elements to display?
  • Doesn't show all the headers

    Why don't you just show all the headers. Tons were omitted, including some that I needed. lame.
  • Must have for web devs

    Sometimes I’m not by my computer and have to troubleshoot a client issue. This is an invaluable tool on my phone to do just that. Gave 4/5 since I’m unable to close tabs on my iPhone XS—clicking the “x” doesn’t do anything. Would also like if it came with a share sheet integration to launch quickly from Safari/Chrome. Other than that amazing.
  • Best I’ve found for iPadOS

    I’m transitioning more and more to my iPad when I can but there are certain things I have to pull the Mac out for. I don’t have the expectation that this app perform flawlessly all the time, but it works very well for most purposes and makes it so I have one less thing I have to pull the Mac out for in 95% of instances I need a web inspector in my use cases. I consider it $7 well spent and thank the developer for their work.
