I have a site with a fixed footer. I am using this jQuery fix to make it static for the Iphone and Ipad as well as the Ipod:
//stick the footer at the bottom of the page if we're on an iPad/iPhone due to viewport/page bugs in mobile webkit
jQuery(document).ready(function ($) {
	if(navigator.platform == 'iPad' || navigator.platform == 'iPhone' || navigator.platform == 'iPod')
{
     $("#footer").css("position", "static");
};
});

Open in new window


Works well. But what name should I add to add the same fix for Google Android? it has the same issue with viewports and fixed elements, but just adding Android after another || does not seem to work..

jQuery(document).ready(function ($) {
	var deviceAndroid = "android";
	if(navigator.platform == 'iPad' || navigator.platform == 'iPhone' || navigator.platform == 'iPod' || uagent.search(deviceAndroid) > -1)
{
     $("#footer").css("position", "static");
};
});

Solved it:
//stick the footer at the bottom of the page if we're on an iPad/iPhone/Android due to viewport/page bugs in mobile webkit
jQuery(document).ready(function ($) {
	//if(navigator.platform == 'iPad' || navigator.platform == 'iPhone' || navigator.platform == 'iPod')
	if((navigator.userAgent.match(/iPhone/i)) || (navigator.userAgent.match(/Android/i)) || (navigator.userAgent.match(/iPod/i)))
{
     $("#footer").css("position", "static");
};

});
