View Source for iPhone

By  | 

Have you ever visited a website on your computer or laptop and wanted to know how it was implemented in HTML? Most major browsers let you see the source for each webpage with a click. But how would you do that on your iPhone or iPad? View Source is one of many apps designed to handle the job. It is a simple tool that lets you enter any URL to see the source code behind it quickly.

View Source lets you see HTML, JavaScript, and CSS source on most webpages. It offers syntax highlighting, so you can easily make sense of what you are seeing. You can use the app on its own or rely on Safari to find the webpages you want to examine before choosing the View Source option. Users have the option to copy text or send it as an email.


View Source is a universal application. It is optimized for iOS 8 compatible devices though. It did crash on us a couple of times, but the idea is quite solid.
