Difficult to manage content 1/5
No ability to remove content directly from the content
Why do you have to pay for it
Parent Dashboard 2/5
Attention Developer!!! Parent Dashboard does not work. I’ve set the time limits and educational goals and I’m still able to watch videos in this app! Please fix!!!
Freetime for iOS doesn’t support audiobooks 1/5
By Em H :-)
I was looking for a way to share age appropriate audiobooks from my audible library with my young kids. Search led me to amazon freetime amazons way of sharing content I have already bought and charging me a monthly fee. So is sign up. I don’t really care for the books and movies but I want to be able curate my audiobooks for my kids. Set it up and it turns out screen time limits for specific functions (I.e. shows versus reading) don’t work on the iOS app and audiobooks don’t work on the iOS app. If service matched marketing this would be great. iOS app severally limited.

I cannot find the apps 2/5
It is amazing but I cannot find The app
Very limited access 1/5
Cannot access most games with paid account, keep getting the”App not owned” error.
Waste of money
Font Size in books 4/5
I don’t see how to make The pages bigger.
Great content lousy customer service 1/5
Dont sign up unless you dont care how much you are paying in subscription fees, it is impossible to check on them
No audio! 3/5
I like the app and everything it offers but I wanted an app where the books were read to my three year old. He really likes to listen to books on the iPad and this doesn’t read to you like I was hoping!
Don’t buy this if you already have Prime. The content is basically the same.
Can’t read the text. 1/5
Wish I could enlarge the text somehow
Parental controls don’t do anything 1/5
Parental controls do nothing on iOS app. I cannot seem to block videos.

Font too small for many - tips to increase font size 2/5
On an iPhone, the font of many books is simply too small, especially for a new reader.
In some dual page picture books, you can increase the font of specific sentences by double tapping on the words. But that only works for some of the sentences and the increase is not enough to make enough of a difference for my granddaughter. And if there are multiple sentences on a page, you often have to double tap multiple times - once on each sentence or word bubble.
In other books, such as the wonderful Katie Woo series, a long gentle press on the screen brings up a font increase/decrease option at the top right. The font option is also briefly presented in that same location when the book first loads. But you have to choose that option for every book, and again every time you come back to reading the same book. There is no way to save font preferences.
And then there are graphic books, such as the Bad Guys. I have found no way to increase font size for them, and the font is so tiny it’s impossible for many people to read on an iPhone 8 screen.
Amazon, certainly you can do better. Certainly the ADA requires you to do better.
My sister has a kindle fire 🔥 so I see what you could do on the app but you could just buy the actual kindle for 30bucks instead
Very confusing to use 1/5
The content navigation/discovery is awful. It’s not intuitive, even as a frequent tech user. There should be far more content descriptions than what is provided.
Only available in US error 1/5
By Mojo Surf Design
Hello FreeTime team, major bug with this app. I’m trying to sign in with my Amazon account. I’m getting an error that says “ only available in United States” WHAT? I’m in US already! Why would you prevent me from signing in. I’m in SoCal.
Unresponsive and unusable 1/5
Settings panel literally does not respond to touch input. You tap things and nothing happens. Useless.
Too many choices without ability to manage them is not good for kids.
Not free 1/5
By crumb of Cookie
We can’t open app without agreeing to a monthly subscription... no thanks
By Boston Bella
There are 2 Amazon FreeTime apps - one Unlimited the other limited. If you choose the unlimited it’s $9.99 a mo not $2.99. Be careful!
SUPER DISAPPOINTED!!! 1/5
By Mellissa C
My kids have had Amazon Fires for the past year. Even with the micro SD card with 128 G, they constantly run out of space because you need so much internal space for games and whatnot so we decided to upgrade them to iPads. We put the amazon FreeTime app on the iPads and there are only books and videos! None of their favorite games or apps they had become accustomed to playing on the Fire. This should definitely be advertised! The app is missing A LOT!
It’s an okay app. Nice to share a library with children, but missing a lot of settings that make Kindle app much nicer. Kindle app needs an access for family sharing within it.
It’s all videos 1/5
This is not what I thought it would be. There are a ton of videos and just a few interesting books that are correct grade level. I originally bought thinking that there would be a lot of books (like kindle) for my avid reader. There are a lot of videos BUT we already have amazon prime so why should we pay again to have a separation app to see those videos? Amazon we need a kindle for kids separate from parents. Canceled the next day after buying.
Setting don’t connect 1/5
The list of settings does not open the individual options to connect to audible and other things
I will never ever ever go on this app again 1/5
By Hage love do you win
I tried to signinbut it didn’t wor I hate thisapp
Good but… 4/5
By simba swettie cat
I have this on my tablet and on my phone.
But the only thing that works on my phone is videos. Because I don’t have internet. Please make it so books work without it. I ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤🤍🤎❣️💕💞💓💗💖💘💝💟 books!!! I want to read on my phone.
Please. Please. Please.
Type is too small on iOS 2/5
Really hard to read the words in the books, can’t zoom like a normal iOS book
Disappointing - Just wanted to share books 1/5
I was told by an Amazon tech that I could use this app for free to share books with my son. 30 minutes later and was finally told that I couldn’t use the app to share books with my son unless I bought the subscription. I was even told to buy a kindle fire (when I use it on an iPad). Sorry, Anazon, ipad beats kindle fire any day and I refuse to buy yet *another* service. All I wanted to do was share books with my son. Thanks for nothing.
By Pig Envy
Trying to get Amazon Prime like ap says but get a kids version? Very misleading!
My child loves exploring the kid friendly internet, he reads books and plays free games, my child tells me that he loves these games. He has a fire tablet, and he’s eight. It’s perfect for my child.
Not user friendly at all. I can’t do the things I need to do.
NO GAMES 3/5
Hello I want to love this app but I tried to look for all the games but I have no games on it and my kids love games it said games books and videos for kids and there’s no games
Needs improvement 2/5
Nice app but I wish the dashboard was accessible from the main page.
Small lettering 5/5
Needs the zooming in on the books, not readable for small children
Hate it 1/5
Be careful with this app once you cancel your subscription they subscribe you back to their app and charge you every month without your consent check your bank I’ve unsubscribed and they manage to subscribe me back and charge me and take money from my card if I could rate this app a 0 I would but it won’t give me an option don’t waste your time with this app
Great BUT... 4/5
I just a stumbled across this app and it is amazing but it would be great if they added a list to save our favorites as well as a system to rate or give the consumer something that indicates what the book teaches (example: I don’t like just reading any old thing to my child so I would like to know before starting the book weather it teaches about motor skills, emotions, letters and numbers,etc) I’d also like to see other parents opinions of the books
Limits don’t work for iOS 1/5
Time limits don’t work for iOS. Even with videos and apps blocked, they show up and can be watched or played. Works just fine on the Fire tablet.
Lacks basic features 1/5
Absence of search makes for a weirdly poor experience. Totally inconsistent eading experience, nothing like (and much worse than) the Kindle app or FreeTime on a Kindle Fire. Literally can’t even zoom in picture books. Gave up and unsubscribed and deleted this app.
It is very hard to get the echo dot kids to play audiobooks that the kids want.
Great App !! 5/5
Apps that I would normally have to buy on the play store are already pre- loaded to the tablet with full access !
Useful App, awful user experience 2/5
A good way to move content such as Audible books onto your kids’ Echo devices, but a slightly annoying way to do it....requires multiple logins.
Guys! Every single thing in the app is paid! Please do half free half paid. Please look at my review amazon
