Mobile Device Detection in Sitecore

Sitecore RulesThe Mobile Device Detector module in the Sitecore Marketplace is pretty popular.  It uses the 51degrees.mobi database for detecting mobile devices and ties into Sitecore’s rules engine.  This allows Sitecore editors to configure how the site is displayed across devices.  

The current module is configured to access V2 of the 51 degrees service.  The V2 service will be retired as of May 2015 and is replaced with V3.  So, if you rely on this module for device detection you might put that date in the calendar.  

We’ve recently updated the Sitecore module to call the V3 service and posted it to github.  You can find a link to the code here.
