  • Need’s to Be Updated 5/5

    By The Princess of Games
    Dear PBS Kids, I’m 12, but I still enjoy a lot of your shows. But there’s a small problem with the app. Whenever I click on live tv and try to look at the schedule, it’s reads it couldn’t load. Yes, I’ve tried to use it in an area with high WiFi, but it still doesn’t work. Also, Can you please have 5 full episodes on each series? And maybe change up the colors a bit of the app? Like maybe add a bit of red? Sincerely, a 12 year old fan
  • Doesn't work outside the U.S. 1/5

    By QuantumAnomaly
    If you live outside the U.S. and had hopes of letting your kids use this app to learn English and other subjects, well forget it. The PBS license prohibits this, rendering the app entirely useless. It's ridiculous that in this globally interconnected age we still have to face such licensing restrictions. I found YouTube Kids to be a much better choice (even though it doesn't offer a companion Apple TV app).
  • Our goto 5/5

    By A-Mac16
    Chromecast is back! Now the app is good again and all is well. This is a great app. So many good shows. Its been growing with our son. He has been able to navigate it since he was 2 and it still keeps him entertained now at 6.
  • Missing George 1/5

    By tmd2000
    This app was a go-to for my son because he loves Curious George, and George seems to have disappeared with the latest app update. We are very disappointed!! Please bring him back!
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE !!! 5/5

    By Blueberry nessa
    My 2 yr loves watching her shows on this app. We used to use YouTube kids but we ran into many inappropriate shows :/ so having this app makes me feel better about what my child is watching. I definitely recommend this app.

  • Latest update leads to crashing 4/5

    By Katie61616161
    Normally this works great, my kid loves it, and I am grateful for its existence! But the update the other leads to crashing without ever getting past the loading screen. :(
  • PBS 5/5

    By FITO 10
    Great app.
  • Thankful for PBS, reloading issue when open, please add auto play control 4/5

    By Branflake7
    Our family loves this app. Especially with the addition of casting to our TV via Chromecast. We use it on our iPhones and iPad. One problem we experience: if we have a program castes to our TV, and the app is open on my iPhone, when I unlock the screen, it restarts/reloads the show that is playing without prompting. Quite annoying to the one watching it on the TV! Is there something I can change? Also, adding a feature to turn off the auto-play would be amazing. I want my kiddos to enjoy PBS programming without becoming TV zombies!
  • Good suggestion 4/5

    By Fix The Problem Pls
    Please put a lock screen my 2 year old always backs out of screen and its surely irritating

  • Apple TV app is broke 3/5

    By d3bruts1d
    My kids love the PBS Kids app on the Apple TV. However since the last update it has failed to activate. I have removed the app and reinstalled and restarted the device with no luck. I contacted via the website and have not received a response.
  • Thank you. 5/5

    By Specialneeds mom
    Thank you thank you thank you.!!!! You finally have made the live TV option available on the Apple TV. Also thank you so much for not needing a TV subscription. We do not have cable. My special needs daughter loves to watch PBS kids. The rest of the watch now apps need a TV subscription. Like watch Disney channel, watch Disney junior, watch nick and nick jr. but thankfully your app does not. Which is perfect because my daughter LOVES Daniel tigers neighborhood, and Arthur, wild kratts and splash and bubble. She loves it. So thank you again.
  • Please please please! 4/5

    By Thespianaf
    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.
  • Unable to update 1/5

    By JLReaves
    My grandson loves this app. The most recent update has rendered it useless. The update won't load, and I get an error message saying "unable to download app". I can't open the app anymore. I thought I would delete the app and try downloading it again, but I can't delete it either as it is waiting to update. Am I the only one having this issue? Any suggestions?
  • Kids love❤️ 5/5

    By YOJ713
    My kids love this app. I am also glad to have it when we are out and they need a little entertainment.
  • What did you do? 4/5

    By CAB320
    The updates to this are terrible. My 3 year old used to love being able to go through all the shows available and pick out what he wanted. It helped him find new shows to like and made him able to do it himself. Now neither he or I can figure out how to use the app. It seems all you can do is watch live tv or download episodes separately in the App Store? This is a terrible change. We might as well delete the app now. UPDATE: There was a technical problem and the developer was kind enough to reach out to me. Thank you PBS my son is again very happy with the app.

  • Lost all videos 1/5

    By rehcorni
    I have loved this app for years. The recent live tv update seems to have caused the library of episodes to disappear. The live videos are the ONLY videos that can be seen now.

  • Why oh why? 1/5

    By Mommy LJ
    Why oh why??? Have used the previous version of this app for years and loved it. But they just updated it and the "old" versions no longer work on the older iPods and iPhones that have been handed down to my kids. The same kids that want to use this app and can't. The older version is still loaded on their devices but you now get an "Unable to connect to PBS Kids Servers. Please try again later." message. Uggh. Please PBS Kids -- allow the old version of the app to work again!

    By DargonM
    There is a bug that seems to persist. When the app is connected to an external Bluetooth speaker, the video will not go to full screen when tapped as usual. Is anyone else getting this issue?

  • Plenty of videos - streams quickly 5/5

    By kri10
    I have never had an issue with this app. Navigating the app is easy and there are a lot of videos (full episodes and clips) to choose from. I have never had an issue streaming videos while on wifi or on my LTE data plan. My family loves PBS kids!

  • Help with Live Tv 2/5

    By Jennie06
    Casting Live TV with chrome cast works as long as I remain with my phone on the app but as soon as I have it in the background and doing something else it pauses. It's unrealistic for me to sit with my phone actively on your app the whole time. Any fix for that?
