The Open Device Lab is a Portsmouth community space for testing websites and apps on a range of devices and operating systems.

A resource that supports the design and build of digital projects, to create engaging, interactive user experiences.

We understand that it’s essential for web products to be responsive on all mobile devices. The ODL allows our designers, developers, and members of our community, to test their products before they go live.

We currently have a range of devices with different operating systems available for testing.

Our developers and designers find the ability to test their websites and apps on a variety of devices an invaluable experience. We use tools such as Browsersync to allow testing on one handset to be quickly echoed across all the devices in the ODL.

Our Open Device Lab is an ongoing project and a growing resource.
