A small but powerful Adobe Air application that can run on your Mac and allows you to test webpages designs on multiple mobile devices.
Muir represents only the desktop counterpart for the mobile applications that are required to connect your devices. The Mac application will only be useful to synchronize the mobile devices: you must have the Muir clients installed on your mobile devices beforehand.
The developers provide client applications for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire and Nook devices, but take into account that you must buy them separately for each platform. Once both the desktop and the client apps are installed, Muir will use your Wi-Fi network to establish a connection between the devices (you can use as many gadgets as you like).
In addition, you must install the Muir web browser plug-ins to be able to sync the webpage you are currently working on to all connected devices. Muir is offering support for working with Firefox and Google Chrome.
What’s more, you can download optional plug-ins designed to integrate the Muir application into Coda 2 or Sublime Text: after install, the Muir clients will automatically refresh a specific URL every time you save or publish a document.
To sum up, Muir can be a great addition to your apps collection if you are developing mobile websites and you need to test your work. However, keep in mind that you need both the client applications and the browser plug-ins to actually make use of its capabilities.
