Adobe Shadow Labs Release 1 is launched today (Mar 7).

The software enables Web developers and designers to work faster and more efficiently by streamlining preview and customization of websites for mobile devices.

Adobe Shadow aims to alleviate the time and stress of working on websites across mobile browsers. Web pros can wirelessly pair multiple smartphones and tablets with their computer and simultaneously view real-time previews of Web content across multiple iOS and Android devices, quickly seeing refreshed website designs with live updates.

We heard from the community that emulators and simulators just won’t cut it and it’s absolutely critical that website compatibility is checked on the actual devices. Adobe Shadow’s synchronized browsing nearly eliminates the need to touch the device, but still provides a real, on-device experience.

Following the Adobe Shadow Blog to learn more. Visit the Adobe Labs to download this Labs Release version of Adobe Shadow.

If you are going to SXSW, visit our Creative Camp session on Shadow titled, Boost your Mobile Workflow with Adobe’s Newest Product – Monday, March 12 at 11:00 a.m.- Noon in the Radisson Town Lake Ballroom.
