  • What are the limitations of the WURFL OnSite Trial Version

    The WURFL OnSite API included in the trial download is a fully functional version of the latest API release.

    The trial’s WURFL device data snapshot XML contains a basic set of 15 popular WURFL device capabilities. Contact us if you want to add more WURFL capabilities that are not included in the trial set. ScientiaMobile has more than 500 capabilities to meet your needs.

    The XML included with the trial is created once at the same time as the most recent API version release. The trial version XML is not updated weekly (unlike paying customers who do receive weekly updates). Therefore, depending on the length of time since an API version release, the downloaded XML may not have the most recent devices. This trial configuration provides enough performance and accuracy to prove out a proof of concept for technical development teams.  If you want the most updated version of the XML, then please fill out a sales inquiry and we are more than happy to discuss your requirements.

    In terms of licensing, the trial period expires after 30 days from initial download. Trial users are not allowed to use the API or XML after this trial period.

  • What is the license for the WURFL APIs?

    As of Release 1.8, the WURFL API is only offered under a Commercial license or an Evaluation license that expires in 30 days. WURFL is no longer released under AGPL or Open Source licenses.
