A rapid and lean UX project, the iPlayer kids app was turned around from concept to app store within 6 months.
There had always been discussions within the BBC about whether or not there should be a separate experience for kids in iPlayer but the truth is it took getting wind of Sky releasing a kids version of their app for the Beeb to get going.
We were given a very short time frame to discover what the minimum we could do to iPlayer to make it child friendly.
There was no scope to create a brand new app from the ground up. We had to pick our battles and pick them well.
