Facebook Developers Get Device Detection
Facebook has begun allowing app developers to find out what devices their users have in order to optimize apps and games accordingly. Using the Graph API (application programming interface), developers can access a list of device a user has connected to Facebook.
“Using this information, you can improve the mobile app or game experience for users in many ways, such as prompting a web user with an iPhone to install your native app or offering a user to invite their friends with devices supported by your mobile app,” stated a post on Facebook’s Developer blog.
Separately, the company also said its newly unveiled App Center is now available in the Facebook for iPad app. The App Center lists iPad apps integrated with Facebook.
