Software developer Itty Bitty Apps has launched Reveal, a runtime inspector for iOS apps that runs on OS X. The software integrates tools such as Firebug and Apple's Web Inspector that enable the user to perform runtime inspection with different 2D and 3D visualisations for faster debugging. The user can also view hierarchies and edit an app in real-time with the built in tools, and also includes full support for both simulator and device for inspection.

Runtime inspection for iOS apps
Reveal brings the power of tools like Firebug and Web Inspector to iOS developers. See your application's view hierarchy at runtime with advanced 2D and 3D visualisations. Debug view layout and rendering problems in seconds.

Instrument your apps
Simply link your iOS application with the Reveal library, start it up, and you'll be able to see and interact with your application like never before.

See changes, live!
You can edit and modify views in your running application to see the effect immediately. No more recompiling to test simple visual changes.

Focus
View hierarchies can get complex. Simply double click a view to isolate it, and all its subviews. Use the path bar to navigate up the hierarchy, and use the history buttons to go back to where you've been.

The software has also been given testimonials from developers of notable apps including Flipboard [Direct Link], Artsy [Direct Link], Cook - The World's Cook Book [Direct Link], and Alien Blue [Direct Link]. Reveal is now avaliable to purchase from the official Itty Bitty Apps web store, and is priced at $59 for educational use, $89 for a personal license, and $179 for a commercial seat license. The developer also offers a 30-day free trial of the software.
