In order to ease the process, you can send us the user agent by accessing the following link with each individual device you'd like to be added: https://db.scientiamobile.com/h ...

Hi, From what I understand, you want to know if it is possible to get a WURFL device by providing the API the `marketing_name`, `model_name`, and `device_name`. In order to get a WURFL device using the API, you will need the user agent or the WURFL ID. If you would like to discuss your use case, and...
