Great app and show
My wife and I are wildlife biologists in the Pacific Northwest. We love watching Molly with our kids, and really appreciate its well written and well sourced and interesting narratives on ecology and culture and history and critical thinking and everything else. We usually pick apart inaccurate science narratives in shows we wish were better made, and debate whether to let the kids watch them. We are very impressed with Molly of Denali.
I will admit that I don’t know what the kids think of the app yet. Because I’ve just been playing it myself for the last hour or so and enjoying myself thoroughly and haven’t told them about it yet; even though the content seems targeted a bit younger than my bracket. I’ll show it to them tomorrow.
Please improve your show by making lots more episodes. And please improve your app by adding lots more app content. My only real critical feedback is that your app needs a more robust settings functionality.....reset data, within app audio control, screen orientation flexibility.
Thank you very much for making this show and app.

No sound 😢 -UPDATED-FIXED
Just downloaded it, and there’s no sound. I can read the dialogue, but my pre-K kiddo can’t read yet, so sound would help. Thanks!
UPDATE- PBS Kids contacted me. And Yep, I had the silence/mute button ON for my phone.
I switched it OFF and it was fixed. Silly mistake.
Thanks so much!!
