I am looking for an iOS app that lets me easily view the source of the web page in Safari.


  • preferably free (but no more than £1 if not free)
  • runs on iOS 8 (preferably 7 as well)
  • view source directly from Safari (and, if possible Chrome)
  • syntax highlighting for Javascript, HTML, and CSS (anything else is a bonus)
  • preferably a 'save' button for the source code for future reference

I'd rather the data didn't go through any third party server, and everything happens locally.


View Source – HTML, JavaScript and CSS

View Source is an app which adds an iOS 8 extension to Safari to allow you to view the source code of a webpage.

The app includes syntax highlighting and the code can be emailed/copied/exported. The app also includes a resource browser and DOM explorer similar to the developer tools in browsers.

  • Great! Any idea whether this goes through a server? Jan 31 '15 at 18:01

    @ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Not a third-party server, no. It gets the page from the original server that the page is located.
