Detecting device OS

Postby sangamesh_ms » Thu Feb 12, 2015 8:35 am


We have PHP code setup for calling WURFL API. We are able to get response for "form_factor" capability.

But when I am trying to use capabilities like "is_ios", "is_andriod" and "device_os" its giving us below error:
"Error: The requested capability (is_ios) is >invalid or you are not subscribed to it."

Please advise.

I noticed that your account is only subscribed to the `form_factor` capability at the moment which is why these capabilities are not being returned by the WURFL cloud. If you would like to add them to be returned back by the cloud service, you will need to add them to your account on

You can also find an example to display every capability that you are currently subscribed to in `examples/show_capabilities.php`.

Thank you,
