Well, it should not be too hard depending on your level of knowledge of Objective C and Java. If I were you, check out a book called iPhone Programming The big nerd ranch guide by Joe Conway and Aaron Hillegass. That should get you going in the right direction for iPhone programming.

If you're coding with PHP, you could use $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'] for checking the UserAgent header, which is sent almost by any major mobile device to PHP script. Then just compare the value of this header with substr fuction to whatever it needs to have inside. For example, Apple devices will always have 'iphone' or 'ipad' sub-strings; Android devices ...
