iPhone 4 Simulator is a simple to use web tool that simulates an iPhone 4. It provides the same Safari-like features of iPhone’s. Developers can “slide to unlock” the virtual iPhone through their mouse pointer. Next they enter in their web app’s URL; the web app’s behavior will be simulated just as if an actual iPhone 4 was running the app. This can save developers a lot of time that would otherwise be spent physically checking the web app on an actual iPhone 4. The site works well with Firefox, Safari, and Chrome.

Key Features:

  • Free iphone 4 simulator online.
  • Lets you simulate an iPhone 4.
  • Lets you try out web apps in the virtual iPhone 4.
  • Saves iPhone web app developers a lot of time in testing.

As far as I can tell, and I’d love to be corrected, this is a very poor excuse for a simulator. It seems that your web app is just being displayed inside a standard iframe with an iphone-looking interface wrapped around it. The web page you enter will be rendered by whatever browser you are using, and there is no actual simulation of an iPhone.

I suppose if you use the “simulator” in Safari, its not completely worthless, but its still not great. For example, Safari supports flash. As far as I know, iPhone does not.

If anyone knows an actual simulator that is worth using, I’d love to know. You can reply here or contact me at: ContactByWeb.com/dgscripts

DG I agree this simulator is a basic one and does not offer many ‘simulation’ features. iPhone developers will undoubtedly require a more feature-rich iPhone simulation tool. Still however this simulator can be quick and easy reference for developers to see how a website / web app will run and look like running inside an iPhone…

Hi Umar, it is a quick and easy reference on how well your web app will *fit* on an iPhone screen. I’ll give you that. And its extreme simplicity does make it *relatively* useful for quickly checking that.

But IMHO, its not are reference for how it will *run* inside an iPhone.
