Code snippets to detect mobiles including ipad using navigator.useragent.

function detectmob() {
     return !!navigator.userAgent.match(/iPad|iPhone|Android|BlackBerry|Windows Phone|webOS/i));
}

Kindle Fires and PlayBooks are not detected by design. To add support for tablets, add |playbook|silk

    any: function() {

    }};
}
