Remote Debugging Mobile Web Apps

Remote debugging is the process of viewing & editing the code behind a website on your own computer, but from a separate device. As mobile devices and mobile browsing continues to see exponential growth, it's becoming increasingly important to test and debug your web apps via remote debugging, since there's no way to  inspect a webpage's resources on a physical mobile device. Here are a few techniques I use for testing & debugging web apps on mobile devices today.

Will America get moving on mobile payment?

I was fascinated the first time a friend demonstrated Square to me.  She attached the card reader to the top of her iPhone, swiped a credit card through, and showed me the user interface for the transaction.  Amazing.


Any new idea clashes with old thinking.  The same thing is happening again with mobile payments.  The New York Times again had excellent coverage:…

Being an open source web developer for the last 10 years, I have probably tried most of open source web related technologies out there in some flavor. It all started with good old HTML.

Apple has been playing Docomo and Softbank off… Continue
