    "This made it really easy to test my website on multiple mobile platforms. I don't have the resources to be able to do that without an emulator like this so that's great."

    "I think this has a good idea of where it is going however it needs some work and has some limitations. For instance, you aren't able to really go larger than you like since you are limited to your screen size that you have. Also the emulator appeared to be a bit slow, perhaps some updates would fix it. Overall, it didn't really seem to stand out from the other emulators."

    "There are times when you need to see how an app will look on an iPad, and the native emulator in xcode just isn't what you are looking for. When you run into this problem you should test it using Responsimulator. Also if you don't have an iPad it is sometimes necessary to emulate the software to test or for other reasons, another great reason I have used Responsimulator!"

    "Not sure exactly what this site was for or how useful it is. It just shows you how your website would look on mobile devices. It could be a good idea and might be useful for those who are looking to start a website but given that any one can learn how to personally design their own website quickly, I don't really see a need for this. I would skip out on this one."

    "A fantastic website if you're doing any kind of programming, designing a webpage, editing pictures or anything of the sort. It lets you see how what you're doing looks on different formats. I don't have an iPad myself and they're really expensive, so this was a super easy way to test how a website I'm making would look there. There's all sorts of little things that change when viewing a website from a desktop to a tablet, and I wouldn't have noticed if it wasn't for this website. Very useful tool."

    "The Responsinator is pretty cool site. There is nothing flashy about it or anything wild that it does new. But it does do one thing and it gives you the power to make your own Iphone adds or use other peoples on content you created. It is kind of unique in its own way and think you should check it out."

    "For someone looking to program and design apps, this is a great tool. I no longer have to worry about bricking my devices when I am trying to code an app. Instead I can use this program and be worry-free about fixing mistakes. And let's be honest, it is much easier to program and code on a computer rather than a tablet. It's a great solution for product testing."
