This class can redirect a mobile device to use a native app.

It can register mobile applications available on App stores as recommended alternatives to use the current site as a native application for different mobile operating system families.

The class can detect the operating system family of the current user accessing the site using a mobile device and redirect to the appropriate mobile application installation page previously registered with the class.

If the family of a device is not detected, the list of the apps for all registered families is displayed.

Some Web sites provide alternative native mobile applications that the users can use to take advantage of the site resources when using a mobile device.

Therefore it is convenient to redirect the users to the pages that prompt the user to decide if he wants to install the mobile application on his device.

This class can redirect the users to the correct URLs to trigger the process of installation of mobile applications if the user wants to install them.

It works with different types of mobile device operating systems. Alternatively it shows a Web page for the user to select the mobile application version he wants to install if the mobile device is not recognized.
