Well, you cannot sensibly use the sim for this because the mouse is a
terrible simulation of the thumbs, and because there's generally a huge
DPI mismatch between PC and device displays.
You need to see it in real to e.g. be able to say that the margins
between items are large enough.

Best regards.
