  • Getting Started

    For more information on getting started, refer to the Getting Started Guide or our Cloud FAQ. Likewise, the readme included at Github for each platform provides detailed instructions and examples.

    It’s easy to get WURFL Cloud up and running. Sign up for an account by selecting a plan from the Pricing Table (see table below). Once logged in, WURFL Cloud customers can use 23 of our most powerful WURFL device capabilities. Then, copy the API key; as customers will need to insert it into their client to authenticate and talk to our WURFL Cloud service.

  • Device Coverage

    ScientiaMobile is constantly updating and expanding its Device Description Repository (DDR) to ensure accurate coverage of the newest devices, including long-tail Indian and Chinese devices. WURFL DDR covers 57,000 device profiles, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs, and game consoles.

    Any WURFL user who would like to add new devices permanently to WURFL can submit a request by emailing wurfldb@scientiamobile.com. Read more about how to do it here.

  • Device Capabilities

    ScientiaMobile offers 23 device capabilities from which WURFL Cloud users can choose. WURFL Cloud Lite users receive 3 capabilities

    Developers can use WURFL capabilities to provide more fine-grained optimization and control.

    These include virtual capabilities that combine the logic of several core capabilities. For example, “form_factor” will identify the device as “desktop”, “smartphone”, “tablet”, or several other classifications of devices. This saves developers effort needed to create their own logic to address common business questions.

  • Accuracy and Updates

    WURFL Cloud achieves over 99% accuracy by searching the internet and analyzing over 2 billion user agents per month. ScientiaMobile quickly identifies new devices, including long-tail Indian and Chinese devices. Currently, WURFL Cloud idenfities over 57,000 device profiles.

    Every week, ScientiaMobile updates WURFL Cloud for you. This means developers get an always-updated solution, high accuracy, and a zero-maintenance solution with WURFL Cloud.

  • Detections

    WURFL Cloud defines a detection as a unique visitor to a customer’s site during a 24 hour period. For planning purposes, customers should assume that the number of detections needed in a plan will be roughly equal to the count of unique visitors in a given month.

  • Support

    Customers receive ticketed support for onboarding and initial installation.

    Support specialists with over 30 years combined experience in device detection provide fast responses to developers.

  • Licensing

    WURFL Cloud is open to companies of all sizes, though no OEM clients or software as a service companies (SaaS) can use WURFL Cloud client to serve their customers. You should refer to the Terms and Conditions for the use of the service if in doubt.

    WURFL Cloud is an excellent tool for mobile optimization of websites. However, its license precludes its use for web analytics. A superior tool for web analytics is WURFL InSight which:

    • Provides high-performance batch processing of user-agent strings
    • Integrates directly into many business intelligence (BI) tools
    • Allows customers to analyze trends in their mobile web traffic, identify opportunities, and pinpoint problems that are impacting mobile users
