Ratings and Reviews
Some good features, some frustrating ones...
The app itself is a great idea and generally works most of the time. It works well in conjunction with guided access on iPad for the little ones. I download shows a lot as we take 6-7 hour car trips quite often. Firstly, please give us an option to get rid of the screen that pops up a after 2 hours asking if we’re still watching! Yes we are and no Mum can’t pull over right now just to press the ‘yes’ button!!!
Downloading takes forever and often freezes (I’ve used multiple internet connections, so it’s the app or the Foxtel server that’s the issue...) and I need to fully shut down the app and reopen it to get the downloads going again.
I find it a bit rich that I pay for the kids pack with my Foxtel subscription but shows that we’re once available e.g. Dora and Friends, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Go Diego Go, are no longer available for download. If I’m paying for access then I expect the shows to be available.
Overall the app gets the job done but it could be a whole lot better!
Good app however too easy to delete eps
This app is great for when you’re on the go and don’t have access to the internet. However, in the downloaded episode section, the delete option is right below the episodes. So when my little one gets frustrated with an episode not starting and he starts pressing all over the screen, he easily deletes all the episodes I’ve spent hours on our dodgey NBN downloading for our 4 hour trips.
If you could move the delete episode button to a page that requires you to put in the pin that would be great.
Great app but limits concurrent use
No complaints about the app or content - easy for the kids to use and love the download option for on-the-go. But please, please up your concurrent usage limit! We (and I’m sure many other) have 3 kids wanting to watch and currently the app supports only 2 devices at a time.
