link to iphone android social app when mobile browser detected

I don't like asking open ended questions without providing anything but I can't find any resources on this.  

Simply put, is there a way to link to android/iphone facebook or twitter native apps from an anchor tag when a mobile browser is detected.

The site that I am trying to make this work on runs wordpress.

Yes, at least on iOS:


There is probably a similar Android structure present in the Facebook SDK:
