Doesn't "Responsive" Imply that a player such as Articulate Mobile Player App is Not Necessary?

Sep 20, 2016

After publishing my Storyline course for distribution amongst my iPad learners, I found out that they were prompted to download and install the Articulate Mobile App player in order to view the module.  I thought that the idea of responsive output was that it was agnostic to the hardware and would adjust itself automatically without the need for an extra player.  Am I missing something here?

You are right:  A responsive player should adapt to the device and allow the slide content to be center stage.  I'm not sure if you've seen our position on our responsive player, but it may give you an idea of what's to come.

Also, here's an article from our User Guide about publishing your course for mobile devices.  You can decide to leave the mobile player out of the equation when publishing, and the iPads will pull up the HTML5 format in mobile Safari.   Also, to help with optimal slide size decisions, we suggest some design setups depending on the device your learners will be using (if that is standardized for them).
