Charles Proxy is a great tool for web developers and it can help you in mobile apps too.
Here’s what you’d need to set it up:
Run charles on your pc / mac, go to Proxy -> Proxy Settings and note the proxy port
In your device network settings, enable http proxy and enter its ip and port (see below for ios)
Back to charles, click on Proxy -> Throttling Settings and enable throttling while choosing the 3G Throttle Preset. In the example below i’ve created another preset where i’ve lowered the in/out bandwidth even further
That’s it – now go use your app and watch in the charles screen the requests.
For extra credits, you can introduce packet loss/reordering by running

I’ve had this monitor for 1.5~2 years – no complaints so far.
But as I woke up this morning, it wouldn’t turn on. To be more exact, it would initially show the computer’s contents, then after half a second, it would simply go black… It’s neither a cable issue, nor a graphic card issue and what’s weird is that its operation light is turned on (green) as if everything works!
Fixya.com has some details on the monitor, and interestingly those twoguys report the same issue. From the comments there, it looks like this is an issue of the inverter board and the Cold Compact Fluorescent bulbs and it’s supposed to be fixable though there’s no mention at the cost.
Anyway, i’ll try to get it fixed, nut i’ll probably go on to a new and bigger display, perhaps in the 21′-25′ range… Any suggestions?
