  1. Hi SviluppoMania,

    I’m not sure what you want. Do you want another category for devices like desktop, tablet, mobile, other?

    Or do you want more operating systems below Mobile?

    Could you please eleborate?

    Kind regards,

  2. Hi Hessel,

    Yes, I meant another category among devices (example: UWP, Android, iOS).
    If a news website has a mobile application connected it can integrate the statistics with the Rest Apis, so as to divide the traffic into two: website and mobile applications.

  3. Hi SviluppoMania,

    Okay, that’s a pretty cool use case. Are you already sending data to the Burst API from a mobile application?

    We are working on the performance improvements as we speak. I will make sure that it will be future proof so we can add features like this.

    As of now, I don’t see this feature coming anytime soon because this is a really specific use case. I hope you understand. If more users upvote this request we’ll re-consider it.

    Hope you understand.

    Kind regards,

  4. Hi Hessel,

    Yes, we are already sending data to the Burst API. For now we are using the following “user_agent” depending on the O.S.:
    – “Windows” for UWP
    – “Android” for Android
    – “iPhone” for iOS

    Anyway, as SviluppoMania said, it could be interesting for us discerning the traffic between the website and our App. I think that the user_agent is already the browser for web navigation… for the UWP App we would like to use the “UWP” instead of “Windows” in order to avoid confusion on dashboard.

    We understand that it is a very special case, so not problem about the timeline you want to choose for this. We are sure that you will implement the best solution for this purpose.

    Thank you,

  5. Hi MatVic,

    Cool to hear you are sending data to the Burst REST API.

    We plan on changing the device detection to Matomo Device Detector in the future. See: https://github.com/matomo-org/device-detector

    I don’t have experience developing apps. But maybe you can maybe map the OS according to these user_agent patterns: https://github.com/matomo-org/device-detector/blob/master/regexes/oss.yml

    Maybe this article can help?

    Let me know how it goes. I would love to make it work in the near future.

    Kind regards,
