Tools to Test Your Website on Multiple Devices

A mobile marketing budget is imperative. While 2014 was considered the year of the mobile, imagine what we will see in 2015!  Matrix Group Creative Director Alex Pineda recently shared that one of the top design trends to watch out for in 2015 is the expansion of responsive design with the explosion of mobile devices with different screen sizes and resolutions.  What does that mean to you?

Over the last few years, when it came to designing websites, we built and tested sites on phones, desktops and tablets with similar screen sizes. That’s no longer the case! With multiple devices ranging in different sizes and screen resolutions, you want to make sure you test your site in different devices. There are many tools available out there to do this, but our front end developers have a few that they prefer:

Google Chrome Device Mode & Mobile Emulation: Our primary way of testing and building websites, this tool not only allows us to test the site based on device, screen size and resolutions, but allows us to test the functionality and performance based on specific situations:

Responsinator.com: The site lets you view your site in multiple devices and sizes. Test your current site and see how it looks.

Responsive.is/: A critical thing to look at when testing the responsiveness of your site is the typeface and size. This site is a great resource to use to test your website.
