Ratings and Reviews
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.
Developer Response ,
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
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.
