I am developing only for mobile devices, but allowing my clients a preview apps in web environment. I'd like to allow web-access to supported mobile devices (iOS and Android in my case), but not to other devices or desktop browsers. How and where should I implement this feature in a Kendo Mobile application, thanks!

Hi Yrjo,

The described access policy is out of the scope of the Kendo application widget's functionality. Generally, such policy should be executed before the application widget is initialized. You can use the various generic client-side browser detection tools available (e.g. navigator.userAgent or jQuery.browser) or some provided by Kendo UI, for example:

kendo.support.mobileOS.name
kendo.support.mobileOS.device
kendo.support.mobileOS.browser

On the other hand, if restricting access to your application is important, I advise you to use some login feature or HTTP access restriction. This is the only reliable approach, as browsers' user agent strings can be faked.
