New API Kits Allow Website Owners Server-Side Mobile Device Detection

October 10, 2012

Handset Detection releases local device detection kits for website owners.

Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) October 09, 2012

Handset Detection has announced a local version of their innovative mobile device detection application.

The Australian company has pioneered the process of mobile device detection over the last four years. The Handset Detection app, cloud-based up until now, allows users to detect the mobile devices that are currently accessing their websites so they can better serve customers. With the new local device detection service, customers can do it all right from their own servers.

This new tech can also lead to savings for users as licenses are charged per site and not per server. Plus, as the detection system is all in memory, there are no database dependencies, which makes the process incredibly fast.

“Performance was one of our key goals,” Handset Detection co-founder Richard Uren says. “We’ve taken the same technology we use at http://www.handsetdetection.com and made that available for customers to install on their own servers.”

“Web developers and digital agencies just can’t keep up with the hundreds of new devices added each month,” he continues. “We provide world class mobile detection that you can run locally or via our web service.”

The company has amassed over 1.3 billion detections and has over 500,000 mobile device variations in their database. It´s become too difficult for the average company to keep up with the constant updates in the mobile world.

“Our mission is to help web developers and digital agencies the world over with real enterprise quality mobile device detection,” Uren says, “the kind that big guys like Google and Facebook have, but without having to manage that themselves.”
