    Hello,
    We are Premium subscribers and have noted an issue with the Facebook App for iOS being incorrectly identified recently. Here are some UA strings that we know are this app but are being identified as "Mobile Safari" for BrowserName. Tested with your online tester webpage with the Enterprise 11/24/2016 dataset.

    Any chance of getting these corrected? WURLF is correctly identifying them as the Facebook app currently, not so with 51Degrees:

    Hello,

    These user agents don't detect correctly because they are not in our database, these particular ones don't look like valid user agents as they contain a '+' in place of a space. For the first one I replaced the pluses with spaces and ran it through our user agent tester here:



    It returns an exact match for Facebook for iOS.

    Regards,

    Joseph

    Bah - you are 100% right there. I'm so used to filtering out the + symbols from URLs in my mind I didn't think to do it before passing them to the library. Sorry to have wasted your time.

    Regards,
