“ScientiaMobile has always paid particular attention to the community of developers” – said Luca Passani, ScientiaMobile’s CTO. “This includes paying attention to developers of platforms different from Java, PHP and ASP.NET. Ruby, and the very popular Ruby On Rails framework, have been adopted by tens of thousands of companies that rely on them for their business. The availability of the Ruby Cloud Client is opening those Rails applications to the world of WURFL Device Detection.”.
“Reliably detecting devices is a hard problem to solve and the best solution out there is WURFL. Until now there was not much that could unleash the power of the latest and best WURFL Mobile Device Detection. Today’s Ruby Cloud Client release by ScientiaMobile fills the gap and now with a minimal amount of code developers can start adding device detection to their Ruby applications. ” – said Luca Mearelli, a Ruby developer.
