The ScientiaMobile OnSite APIs (including source code) can be downloaded from your customer vault once registered for a free account. The code is released with the Affero GPL version 3 (AGPL v3). In practice, this means that the WURFL framework can be used only at the condition that the complete source code of the complete application is also released as Open Source. More information about this is provided in our FAQ.

Companies that are not comfortable with the AGPL obligations but still intend to adopt WURFL, can license WURFL commercially from ScientiaMobile.

In general, ScientiaMobile approves that companies download the AGPL version of the software for evaluation purposes. If in doubt about AGPL implications in terms when evaluating the product, please contact ScientiaMobile for clarification.


The ScientiaMobile Support Forum is open to all WURFL users, both commercial license holders and AGPL users. It represents the combined knowledge base for the WURFL community. Commercial licensees are invited to post questions in the forum using the account to which their licenses are associated. This may mean faster handling of those posts by ScientiaMobile’s personnel.

For commercial license holders, there are tiered support levels to address a variety of business support needs. After logging into your account, commercial licensees with support options can access the Enterprise Support portal to post tickets. These tickets will receive expedited attention.

To inquire about support plans, use our License Inquiry or our General Inquiry form.
