Simplify Cross Platform Mobile Application Development with Automatic User Device Detection

By using the AppLauncher component, you can automatically detect the user's device and launch the appropriate component, or .A5W page, with the appropriate stylesheet. You can even navigate to a different URL. Check out the overview video below to see how with just a few clicks, you can simplify cross platform mobile application development.
