    I was wondering what you folks use for device detection?
    I started to play with DeviceAtlas (of but, and I don’t know if its my code, I can’t get my module to work on all platforms.

    Has anyone any other experience they can share? The key features I would like would be:

    • being able to distinguish between a smart phone and a dumb phone.[/*:m]
    • detect a bot/spider[/*:m]
    • possible be able to give screen sizes[/*:m][/list:u]

      Any help would be appreciated,


    thanks edwin,

    Using other scripts could be a good call. To be honest I haven’t explored that route, though I really should of! So thanks again!

    This forum is so solid, great source of minds! Now just the device recognition!


    Thanks box, its a good read!!

    SO I thoguht I would post where I have got to in this quest . . . not that far really BUT is a really simple option. Its a small PHP file and works a treat.
    Using this and the link Edwin pulled up, it gives a nice lightweight option.
