iPhone Simulator – iPhoney Simulates iPhone Web Browsing

iPhoney is a nice iPhone Simulator that works to replicate the web browsing experience of iPhone users. This is very helpful to web developers that need to test if a web site or application works on the iPhone, and also how the user experiences the site. It’s not a traditional iPhone Simulator in the sense that it emulates the entire iPhone user experience, instead it just simulates the web as seen through the iPhone browser. It’s also got a handy feature that gives you the ability to change the user-agent to whatever you want.

My only complaint about the iPhoney app is that it won’t quit normally, I have to force-quit the application whenever I’m done with it (this is on Mac OS X Snow Leopard, could be a 10.6 specific bug). If you can work with that minor annoyance, then I don’t know of a more simple and free iPhone web simulator for the Mac.

If you’re serious about iPhone Development it’s probably best to get the Apple iPhone Development Kit which also includes an iPhone simulator, but will set you back $99 for an Apple Development Center Membership.

    Actually, you don’t need to pay to download the SDK. You only need to pay to put apps on hardware.

    you don’t need to pay 99 bucks all you need to do is register and download x-code it comes with the iPhone simulator. the only time you need to pay is if you plan on coding a app and export it for testing on your iPhone

    You don’t need to pay $99 for the Apple Dev Software. You can get the free version, but I’m not sure what’s different about it.
