Matt, Apple provides a library to perform code inspection for iOS native apps  I believe android also provides The same capability. If you’re running a webpage on mobile device then using a tool like AXE  where you are using JavaScript to call the code inspection program would also work.  If the app is a web both standalone which I have seen I’m not sure.

Can anyone talk me through how this can be done as it is difficult to see the code behind the App. Is it enough to run assistive tech on it (i.e. VoiceOver, Talkback etc). or is there a way to look at the code as well?
