Looks great. Well done.

@Steve Day unfortunately I can't see what you are referring to. Are you able to explain please? Perhaps an image or link you meant to post in your comment was removed?

I think this is a really big deal. If you've managed to make interactive factual programming on portable screens genuinely fast and cheap, it's huge. Gamechanger. Well done! :)

Andy, will the below not solve the compatibility mode issue?
That's what I use on our internal apps that happily decide to run in compatibility mode.

@ KernowChris - Thanks for the input. But I feel, test team has performed pretty extensive testing on guides.

Nice idea... and very much needed to aggregate the non news articles the BBC has to offer. But as a teacher I think you're missing a trick. This isn't very child friendly and there's no link to any curriculum stuff or even the Horrible Histories shows that really help address a child's curiosity.Seems children haven't been thought of at all in this new service.

An interesting idea. You seem mainly to be using CSS3 media queries to get the size change effects in Chrome (which isn't that controversial). The fact that there seems to be no way to close the video down once it is opened is highly annoying however. Still, I like the idea of simple blocks of bold coloured content that resizes based on screen width.

Hope the maintenance work is better than the BBC Sport App revision, Which was reported as having faults within hours of launch, before Christmas, and still remains un-fixed.
These things need testing to destruction and more, something I feel is being neglected in the publishing process at present.

Hello @Kevin. Good to see that you were able to identify the problem and fix it yourself. You're right in that at the moment, Compatibility Mode (or the "Intranet" mode of Windows RT tablets) is not supported by our product. However, we are looking at ways that this lack of support can be better flagged up for the user if they have that setting switched on.

RE: previous post.
This seems to be a problem with the document mode in internet explorer. It defaults to ie7 standards causing it to fail for me. Setting it on 10 seems to fix it.

To say it in bbc terms "This content does not seem to be working". Im on a windows rt tablet and get the same for desktop and modern version of ie 11 see deamandel.net/bbc for screenshots
