Android Detection with JavaScript or PHP

Hello Friends

You have a web application and you want to detect that if your Application is opened from android device than it will be redirect to any other URL that will be Android compatible.This is a good solution for you.

What’s obvious is that Android development is a hot topic that will only grow. Here are a few methods by which you can detect iOS‘ main competitor: Android.

The JavaScript

Searching the user agent string for “Android” is the quickest method:

var ua = navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase();
var isAndroid = ua.indexOf("android") > -1; //&& ua.indexOf("mobile");
// Do something! // Redirect to Android-site? window.location = '';


Again, we’ll use PHP’s strstr function to search for Android in the user agent:

$ua = strtolower($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']);
if(stripos($ua,'android') !== false){// && stripos($ua,'mobile') !== false) {

Bonus! .htaccess Detection

We can even use .htaccess directives to detect and react to Android devices!

RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^.*Android.*$
 RewriteRule ^(.*)$ [R=301]

And there you have it: three different Android device detection! Have fun with your mobile development!
