Responsive web design
Responsive web design (RWD) adapts a web page for different device types, such as mobile, tablet, or desktop.
While it can be a good place to start, RWD isn’t enough to offer your users a smooth experience. It’s a one-size-fits-all solution that doesn’t consider the wide range of devices out there.
Device detection gives you access to real-time data for content adaptation. Enhance device type information with details such as the age, price, processing power, or screen size (in pixels, millimeters, or inches).
If you're looking to improve conversion rates or page performance, accurate device data can help inform your decisions. Use lighter-weight page design for smaller, older, or cheaper devices to keep page loading speeds lightning fast. Use A/B testing to optimize processes and maximize conversion rates on every device.
Deliver lighter and faster web pages, reduce your bounce rates, and improve your conversion rates with device detection.
Real-time data points
We have properties that can identify mobiles, smartphones, smartwatches, or tablets. We can also detect the hardware model, name, and vendor.
Mobile device detection
People are increasingly using smartphones to browse the web. Keeping track of all the different device manufacturers, models, and names can be time-consuming.
Optimizing your digital business for all these devices can be tricky – unless you have the right tools for the job.
Our mobile device detection service helps you identify and segment your mobile audience, allowing for better understanding and optimization decisions. With this information, you can tailor the user experience based on the mobile device’s features and capabilities.
We are also able to detect Apple and iOS devices, despite Apple’s effort to homogenize their device information. We’re clear on what results you can expect from our Apple device detection.
Armed with accurate mobile device data, you can create opportunities to maximize your mobile conversion rate.
Mobile device data
