Good and bad
This app is pretty good but it needs to change the BAD part the bad part is when you watch to many videos it just goes blank/ doesn’t work any more I would give it 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ but I can’t unless you change that.
And the good thing about the app is the some of the videos are funny and makes me and my little sister laugh a lot and the thing that makes my little sister laugh is the show bluey 4 things that make my little sister laugh is when bingo the parrot says
what-you-want-a-craker) and when bingo says ooger-booger to her dad also when they play neighbours and there dad moves next to the mum and makes a lot of noise and last is when bluey is a mum and rusty wants to play mums and dads and bluey thinks rusty wants to be a baby and bluey takes care of rusty like rusty is a baby
Recent update is buggy
This is a staple app in our house! We’ve used it daily for a few years. The old version was great, it was simple, toddler-friendly and had helpful and functional parental controls. The new version seems to have removed most of these and made the app far too complicated for solo toddler operation. There’s no longer any way to see how much time remains before the timer expires, and there are now arbitrary groupings of shows that are irrelevant to my kid on the home page. She likes what she likes and to find her shows she now needs to select the search function down the very bottom to bring up the alphabetical listing. Otherwise she can’t find all her shows properly. The icon to stream to Apple TV is ridiculously close to the closed captions icon which means it’s difficult even for an adult to use without mistakes. Worst of all, it seems to dump the user out of the app completely after each episode finishes. So parents hoping to shower in peace for 20 mins have to intervene after each episode. It seems the the developers threw the baby out with the bath water this time.
New update doesn’t deliver
We loved the old app. My son could watch what he wanted and could find what he needed, when he wanted. Now he is shown things the app thinks he might like to watch and becomes frustrated looking for what he likes. It’s not great for him to be flicking through shows when he usually chose from just a few. This app seems to think children under 4 have the same requirements for an app as an adult does. Also as a parent, long episodes no longer show the total episode length, therefore we think my son is choosing a ten minute episode before bed but find out it’s a 58 minute fireman Sam movie. There are major problems with buffering too, the episodes used to move seamlessly from one to another but now it pauses to buffer the next episode. The previous format that showed previously played episodes in a table format at the top was also easier for little browsers. Luckily we still have an old iPad with the previous abc version on it.
