    1) The Aurora starter store does not support a bi-directional
    language.
    2) The Aurora starter store does not work properly on tablets.

    Aurora home page
    - ability to tap on a product to see the compare and quick info
    buttons
    - support pinch-to-zoom gesture
    - display the number keypad instead of the character keypad on
    number fields
    - correct pagination display on tablets
