Ratings and Reviews
Great content, unstable app with quirky behavior
PBS Kids is dependable for having the best kids content—I never worry about what my kid is watching if I have him in here on Guided Access.
It does, however, tend to crash/freeze a bunch (especially on older devices like an iPad Air 2, but also on our Apple TV HD) and for some reason often fails to stop the auto-playing stream when you choose something different to watch. This is worst on Apple TV, where you might try clicking to see the next Daniel Tiger episode from the TV app’s ‘up next’ selection, only to have the audio from an episode of Arthur (or whatever is next in the “Live TV” lineup) playing simultaneously with the Daniel Tiger episode — both at the same volume. I’ve learned to force quit the app then go directly to it to navigate to (in this example) Daniel Tiger, but the same thing can still happen even on iOS/iPadOS when choosing a video to watch while the “Live TV” selection is playing.

If you have any other information to share or need help with anything in the app, please feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com for support. Hope this helps! - the PBS KIDS team
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!
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 Rachelswork - Thanks for the detailed feedback! We'll look into this a bit more and see what's going on. We apologize for the "wheel of death" - We'll look into this and see if we had any server issues. But thanks for supporting PBS KIDS! - Best, the PBS KIDS team
