Articulate Mobile Player for Published (output) files ?

We are trying to decide if we should include the mobile player for iOS or Android when publishing our Storyline version 2 projects.

It has been suggested to us that we should only publish for Html5 output and not the mobile player because we cannot expect users to download the player from itunes, as some users may run into difficulties doing so. In addition the player does not seem to work with iOS7.

At the moment we do not use LMS at all.

Any advice?  When you publish your Storyline version 2, do you include the player?

Sorry Gil, I just noticed that you had mentioned that in your original post!

Personally, I don't use AMP because I'm typically working with an LMS. But even if I wasn't, I'd still publish to HTML5 rather than AMP, especially as Storyline's HTML5 output keeps getting better and better... 

Maybe give the HTML5 only approach a go and then consider moving to AMP if you need to? 

Are you aware of the differences between the outputs?

Hi Gil!

We typically advise sharing the story.html file with your users. I just wanted to pop in and share our documentation:

Articulate Storyline lets you publish courses for Flash, HTML5, and the Articulate Mobile Player app. To distribute your published content, upload it to your web server or LMS, then link to the story.html file in the published output. Here’s how Storyline determines which version of your content to display when learners view it.
