Mobile Detect

Mobile Detect is a lightweight PHP library for detecting mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets. It can detect types of operating systems (e.g., iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone), detailed hardware platforms (e.g., iPad, iPhone, iPod), or web browsers (e.g., Firefox, Chrome, Opera Mini) by using a mix of User-Agent string and HTTP header analysis. This server-side mobile detection script can be used to design a responsive website.
