Why won't the Ludus app work on my device?

As hard as we might try, not every tablet or mobile device will support this new technology. We have made every effort to make the App work on some of the most recent touch screen mobile phone and tablets available.

Do I need a WiFi connection to use the Ludus App?

You will need a WiFi connection to download the Ludus app to your mobile phone or tablet. You will also need a WiFi connection also to download any updates to ensure you have the most up to date version to play along at home.

This is a free BBC service. However, your operator may charge you for the amount of data you use. If you are unsure how much data costs on your tariff, please contact your network operator.

Why won't my app sync to the TV show?

Please make sure that the Ludus show volume on your TV is turned up and your microphone is working on your mobile phone or tablet.

Ludus stopped working since I upgraded to Android 5.0 (Lollipop), what happened?

We’re really sorry but for some of you, it looks like this update to Android has broken the technology that makes Ludus go. We are investigating how this can be fixed right now.

What can I do on the Ludus App?

The Ludus app allows you to play along with the show at home and try to collect holloboxes and beat Ludus.  The app also contains the Levels of Ludus, which has all the games from the show so you can practice and improve your game skills.

I'm having a problem with the Ludus app that isn't covered here.
