IPAD testing


We have a requirement to test QlikView dashboard from IPAD.

Did anyone use a simulator for doing this? If yes could I have the download link.

I understand the simulator would enable us to install an application on our desktop that will virtually have the iOS and the same look and feel.

Re: IPAD testing

Even though exist some websites for that, the results aren't close to what it really shows and feels to view an QV on the iPad.

So I recommend you to use a real iPad for this .

If you need some advice on designing best practices for iPad, you can check this blog post by Michael Anthony.

Just a quick guide, I would recommend you:

- Minimun font size 9-10 pt for listboxes and 9 for charts.

- Show axis and grid for Y label or if not, show values on data points (due to there is no Hover event using a touch device).

- Max width of 1024px, max height of 560 to 590px depending on the bars of the browser used and if the bookmarks bar is showed.

- Be careful, some objects are not easy to use when using a touch device (sliders, calendar object).

- Use the search object to save real state space and avoid using too many listboxes. You can use a pop-up to show more filters (listboxes).

Hope it helps.

Use this one:

Electric Plum - Power for the Mobile Web

There is a complete Free Trial version and it is actually pretty cheap if you would like to buy it.
