GUI for Mobile Players

Hello, I’ve recently noticed, that my Progress GUI can only be accessed by Pc Players, since you open it while you hold Q. I wanted to know if its possible that you detect the Players device so mobile players get the Gui, but that they can click a button to see that. But i dont want that button to be visible for pc players.
Is something like that possible?


This can be found through simply searching the wiki or the Devforum , but One way you can do this is by using the UserInputService:

(this, isn’t a perfect solution, because as far as i know there isn’t any way to directly/100% accurately detect a player’s device, at least while using normal scripts (non-core scripts) )

local UserInputService = game:GetService("UserInputService")
local GuiService = game:GetService("GuiService")
if UserInputService.TouchEnabled and not (UserInputService.KeyboardEnabled and UserInputService.GamepadEnabled and GuiService:IsTenFootInterface())  then
--player is using a mobile device 
else if UserInputService.KeyboardEnabled then
-----player is on Pc (or a Pc emulator)

this particular example can be found here:

Few questions

This works for iPad?
What type of script?
Where do you put the script?

That code will work for any device that accepts touch input. Place it in a local script under StarterPlayerScripts.
