It does work, but there is no magic. You can't show huge tables or fixed formatted (source code) text on a small device in a readable way. You have to redesign.

I have a technical back office style web app that I just overhauled with TBS. It has lots of ugly tables. You can still scroll them with a fixed zoom level by making them responsive:


My main interest in TBS is in creating mobile first responsive web apps. Having silly small fonts where I have to zoom in and out all the time is not what I want. My suggestion was to have the demo reflect that capability. But I do agree the source code view is a problem ;-)
