Adobe releases 'Shadow' for live Web debugging on Android and iOS devices
In advance of the SXSW Interactive festival which begins on March 9, Adobe has introduced a new product in its software lab called Adobe Shadow, a Web development tool that is meant to simplify the creation of mobile-customized sites.
"Mobile compatibility is a top demand of Web designers today, but we were hearing from our community that building sites for mobile devices was a huge pain point in their workflow," Adobe's Bruce Bowman said on Tuesday. "The common process we heard was to manually key in the URLs on each device to check the layout and performance of each page of a site design – nothing short of tedious."
Adobe Shadow can be used with any IDE or text editor, and the client software works with iOS and Android devices. Adobe is also offering a Shadow extension for the Chrome browser. All of it is free.
