Articulate Mobile Player

Can someone explain how to use the mobile player for iPad?

I downloaded the app (v1.74) from ITunes onto my iPad (vers 3). I start it up and get the help screen. Tapping the Library and Favorites icons change the heading, but that is it.

There doesn't seem to be a way to add things to the library, connect to the internet, nothing. This can't be right, can it?

What do I do next?

It starts to load in safari and then it automatically launches the mobile player app.

I guess it is just a misunderstanding of how the mobile player app works. I expected that there was something I could do from the mobile player app to initiate playing/launching a new course.

Evidently that expectation was mistaken.

I think it would be helpful if the help screen mentioned something about that. Or maybe when you first launch it and select library/favorites it says something like "You will need to navigate to content with your browser to add courses to your Library." or something like that.

I guess ideally I would like to be able to use the mobile player to discover and bring things into my library.

Hi John,

Articulate Mobile Player will auto open on my iPad 3 when I try your link above: (http://pmjanderson.articulate-online.com/9448701108) but it will NOT auto open for this link: https://etraining.fabioperini.com/video/Forming/story_html5.html

We have tried publishing it in Scorm 1.2 and as a Web output, neither will trigger the mobile player.

Also, opening that link with Safari, Google, or Chrome will work but there are bugs where the buttons sometimes take several touches to function and sometimes the video says it cannot play.  We have tried republishing several times to no avail.

Any ideas?

Hi Troy Troy,

I think you were trying to open the "Story_html5.html". That is part of the branching from the "Story.html". When you load the Story_html5.html, it will not know to load the Articulate Mobile player.
