Detecting mobile device app operation

There is a generally simple method of detecting a mobile device where

Location.Altitude > 0 || Acceleration.X > 0

being true will detect a mobile device (as opposed to a PC), but we now have “cross-over” devices with these sensors being used as office PCs – so how do we detect them? What we really need to know is if the app is being run in a browser or on the Mobile App.
One method I have tested which works is this – try to save a file with SaveData – at App OnStart, run this

               {Value: 1},
               {Value: 2}

and then test gblDevice for the value.
NOTE: This will only work properly on a PC / browser if this setting is switched off in the App.
