If you run a website, you’ve probably run into issues trying to figure out what your site looks like on various devices. If you want a quick way to figure it out, check out Screenfly, a site that lets you see how your site appears on different devices, including desktop, tablet, mobile, and even television. Within each of those categories, you can choose from a variety of devices. For example, if you choose tablet, you can pick between the iPad and four other tablets, including the Motorolla Xoom. Even the desktop selection allows you to choose between several screen resolutions.

  1. Looks like a great tool, but does it also render the page like those devices? My main problem is not screen resolution, but how the browsers render the website.

    • It seems to with mobile devices only, Amit. With the desktop, you’re only given the choice to view in different resolutions. The Safari icon is displayed, so I assume that is what it being displayed.

      • That’s exactly what i needed. Most visits come from computers or laptops, you can’t modify your website for a 320×250 screen phone, but you can at lest try.

  2. Is so cool! I just go to Screenfly to see how my website looks on mobile device’s, i was so curios to see how it look on the iPhone 4. Results are not so good, i have to check it out.

  3. I only care how my websites look and act on Firefox, Chrome, IE, Opera, Safari, Android and Apple. I can easily check all of them.
    Since that 99% of the internet traffic I could care less for the rest.

  4. Really cool. I will try this right now. Thanks

  5. Well this tool should come in handy soon :) Perfect for webmasters who just don’t have the hardware to test their page on different monitors and resolutions.

  6. Tried it, but even though we have a wordpress plugin to automatically detect mobile devices, the site still looked as it normally would on a computer.

  7. Hi,

    But what you think about using a plugin for wordpress platform ?

  8. Thanks for the share Evan. Really quick and easy tool to compare all platforms! Perfect.

  9. I have made my website mobile on dudamobile.com It looks and works fine on their site. http://www.rt1959.com/
