A simply amazing project to lead the design of within a brilliant product team.
We built a new children's app designed to cut costs and filesize by housing HTML 5 games as opposed to native built-in games.
I left the BBC as the app launched to start my contracting career. An incredibly tough choice at the time as this was the project of a lifetime.
Career-wise it's one of the big regrets that I wasn't around to help see the introduction of new features and further develop the app but on the flip side, I was so lucky to work with such a great team.
The CBeebies Playtime app has been a huge success for the BBC but the file size of the app has always been big (currently 796Mb), adding new content to keep the app fresh required a new update whilst also increasing the file size even further. The technology used also meant it wasn't accessible to screen reader users.
