Refined Smart App Detection for 3rd party apps like Browsers apps, Facebook app, QR code scanner app

People visiting your vanity URL (app.cat/yourapp) sometimes do this while stuck inside another app. Facebook for instance. With the introduction of our Speed Splitter, which makes your mobile site look like your real app, we found that most 3rd party apps send confusing info about their identity. This would trigger our warning message "Your device is outdated". It was confusing to say the least. You and we got blamed for other people's shoddy coding.
Other crappy programming by Facebook for instance would define the iPad as an iPhone in their IDs. As a result our Smart App Detector would deliver your iPhone app, not the iPad app.
And some apps would even save that fake ID on your iOS device, which would confuse the actual Safari Browser, which would then also pop up the "outdated" message.
Long story short: We cleaned up other people's mess so you, we, your clients look great and their customers will love you...
