Terrific App!!! When it works :/
I love PBS. We are PBS supporters. I love this PBS kids app. We mostly watch Daniel tiger and Sesame Street. However, sometimes the app doesn't work. Today is one of those days where the "wheel of death" just keeps spinning around and around and around with no loading of any kind. Other times when it doesn't work, it's more of a connection problem for casting to the TV. Most of the time if I have the app on the background of my phone, casting to the TV, while I do other things like make phone calls etc, if I open the app again it completely refreshes and causes disconnection with what was already play on the TV (it'll start the episode over again or go to live TV or even the wheel of death comes on the TV because it's getting mixed signals). This is annoying. But not enough to make me hate the app, just disappointed. 4 ⭐️ because I LOVE PBS but the app needs a bit of tweaking.
Hi I’m Meredith a mom of 3 girls Priscilla Ammonia and Lilia. My youngest daughters Priscilla and Ammonia have begged me for this app since forever and they really enjoy playing on this app. I got all episodes unlocked for them. They enjoy watching episodes of their favorite shows and sometimes I even watch along with them. PBS kids helps me get the stuff I need to get done well they watch tv on their tablets. This app is very educational and will help my girls in the future! You can play games, watch shorts and even watch you’re favorite shows! This app is going to help my children learn and grow throughout the future. They can learn social skills and more skills that will be successful for them. You can watch shows anytime and anywhere. I use to love PBS when I was little and I’ve passed it off to my girls and then new generations will always like it! PBS is like my childhood donation! I have many memories of this! I still have the app so I can interact with my daughters and teach them more so they can get ready for the school year!
Please please please!
We are a PBS home for sure, we love almost all of the shows for kids that are offered. All but one. I have no doubt that a certain character has popped into the heads of other parents watching this before I even name him. The one thing I wish this app could do is give me the option to remove Caillou from the lineup. Not only do I loathe that little monster from the depths of my being, it turns my three year old into a whining monster as well. We will be having a good day and when things turn, you can be sure to hear her singing "I'm Caillou, Caillou". I would pay good money for the option to obliterate Caillou while keeping the other shoes we know and love that don't affect my child's behavior in such a negative way. Please strongly consider adding this feature. For my sanity and the sanity of parents far and wide.
No restrictions on shows
I think the app is great with one exception, there are no show restrictions, I love PBS and how they have educational shows but I don’t feel like all of them are appropriate for my 3 year old. I would like to be able to restrict access to certain shows. Such as Cyberchase for example (I really don’t see how educational that show is at least for his age) or to have the ability to add certain shows so that he’s only watching what I’m okay with him watching. Other than this I love the app, it’s convenient, he can flip through he shows and watch Daniel Tiger and if he’s bored with that he can switch to Sesame Street, etc.
This is a wonderful app. It can get glitchy at times but usually is resolved with an appletv restart. My only complaint is the rotation of available full episodes. Maybe there are contractual conflicts or something else but it seems like even when new episodes are rotated on, they are the same episodes that were just rotated out. If your kiddo only watches 2 or 3 shows this gets old pretty quickly. We are a curious George house and the howlin Hal episode has been playing for years. When my kiddos have screen time options I want them to want Pbs kids, but that is getting less and less likely because the same episodes of their favorite shows have been in heavy rotation for over a year and sometimes two.
This app is amazing but their somethings that need to be worked on
So like one when I’m trying to watch a show and then I want to go to a different show it shows me a little bit of the previous show and then moves on no big problems just like this to be fixed. And also when I’m trying to squirrel down and I’m trying to watch a show at the same time it will just kind of bring me to the school screen instead of leaving me there no big problems again just I want that to be changed. Overall this app is amazing and I really hope you make more PDFs apps fan of PBS forever.
Love PBS Kids - wish the app was more consistent
We absolutely love and support public TV and radio in our household. Thank you for providing free access to quality shows for our toddler, like Daniel Tiger! Unfortunately, I can only get the app to work maybe a quarter of the time. We pick the episode and cast to the TV, and it starts to load, but all we get is a black screen with the PBS Kids logo in the corner. We’ve tried rebooting the Chromecast and using other HDMI ports, but the issue persists. Other apps work fine, so there’s something with this app that causes an issue. And I definitely can’t pause or change anything about the video once it is playing, or I’ll get the same black screen. We love Daniel Tiger - please help!
Thankful for PBS, reloading issue when open, please add auto play control
Our family loves this app. Especially with the addition of casting to our TV via Chromecast. We use it on our iPhones and iPad. One problem we experience: if we have a program castes to our TV, and the app is open on my iPhone, when I unlock the screen, it restarts/reloads the show that is playing without prompting. Quite annoying to the one watching it on the TV! Is there something I can change? Also, adding a feature to turn off the auto-play would be amazing. I want my kiddos to enjoy PBS programming without becoming TV zombies!
I love it
My favorite show is odd squad it’s so much fun to watch because it has so much detail and the costumes are so amazing so back to the app , This is a really good app because if you’re really into shells like those you will really like them. If you have the PBS Kids games app there is the PBS Kids mascot just click on that and tap on the games and then I’ll bring you to the game section and there’s so many games you can play in the same process if you want to go back to the videos just click on the PBS Kids mascot click on the video and then you’ll be back there
What did you do?
The updates to this are terrible. My 3 year old used to love being able to go through all the shows available and pick out what he wanted. It helped him find new shows to like and made him able to do it himself. Now neither he or I can figure out how to use the app. It seems all you can do is watch live tv or download episodes separately in the App Store? This is a terrible change. We might as well delete the app now. UPDATE: There was a technical problem and the developer was kind enough to reach out to me. Thank you PBS my son is again very happy with the app.
My 1yr old son absolutely LOVES the PUBS show, ‘Dinosaur Train.’ He gets so excited when I put his show on. I don’t let him watch tv much, but when I do PBS is one of the only stations that I approve of! I can tell that he learns from this show because after watching it he will say new words. Which is an awesome feeling to know that my child is actually learning from the shows on PBS. I am pleased with the app & the apps performance. The PBS app has improved over the course of 6-8 months since I downloaded it. I love being able to ‘Cast’ (to ChromeCast) from the app as well. 👍🏼
Having issues when linking to chrome cast
Normally, the app works great but this last update has serious issues when casting to a tv using Chromecast. I use this app on my iPhone and my iPad mini and they both have the same issues. 1) the app will continue playing sound on my phone or iPad after casting onto the Chromecast. The only way to stop the sound from continuing on my devices is by closing the app. 2) the app has issues with live tv. It takes forever for the app to properly cast what’s supposed to be live onto the tv. For example, the app kept playing a different cartoon instead of playing what was live for my region (which I selected). I kept pressing the live tv “button” but it kept playing the cartoon over and over again. It only resolved after I closed the app and tried again. Both these issues have made the app really difficult and cumbersome to use. I exclusively use Chromecast to use the app since we always cast pbs on our tv for our toddler to watch together as a family. Please review these bugs and update in the next patch.
Need to be able to navigate
Within a video, when it’s half way through and one returns to it and it reloads, why can’t the user navigate within the video to the part where they left off?! It’s so annoying to have to start all over and I’d have to use more data to watch parts or show parts that an older child can be bored of because they just saw it... now a week or 2 later they may want to see it all over again but not usually in that same hour. At least mine don’t. But they don’t want to wait a few days week to watch it again when they’re not so easily bored of the part they already saw.
Wonderful app with a few appleTV issues
We use this app constantly and really love it. However, on the Apple TV, the audio is a little funky. When you open the app, a video will auto play above the list of shows. Once you click into a show and start watching it, the audio from the main menu video continues alongside the audio from the episode you’ve chosen. It’s a little frustrating because you have to close and reopen the app to solve the problem. Any chance you could look into this, developers? Aside from that, great app!
I cried and I am 10
I was downloading the game because I’ve seen a lot of people download it seems good so then once I download it and look through the show and I decided to see Mr. Rogers and then I cried when he said his dog Mittys died and it got me felling it was so sad and I enjoy it because it teaches kids about deaf and about feelings if feels so good to see one of this shows pop up in the greatest kids advertisement in the world thank you PBS Kids so much for this entertainment I love you with all my heart and with all my childhood I like to thank you
