Live tv button pauses 4/5
By Jamison Gill
There’s a Bug when I go on the live tv thing and it pauses every couple of seconds. If you fix it I will be glad!
I can not watch something live with out it glitching but the rest is ok.
Nice app, except... 3/5
The inability to disable the autoplay functionality is very frustrating.
By Arya pitroda
Hi I like this app
I love this! 5/5
I’m only 10 years old and I really like tv shows but I can’t find the tv shows I like on tv without having to search up then it adds it to my moms watch list but PBS kids has all of the shows I like! Like Wild Kratts, Curious George, Clifford the big red dog, Nature Cat, Splash and Bubbles, Wordgirl, Martha Speaks, and Super Why! Thank You PBS Kids!
App not working... 4/5
App used to work perfectly but since recent update, buttons or full games are not loading on wild kratts games. Before this, worked great and my kiddos love the wild kratt games.
Please add more videos 5/5
Halloween videos are coming soon!
Casting to chromecast is a struggle 1/5
Nice app but the chromecast feature is nearly unusable. It successfully casts about 10% of the time and even then, takes a good 4 or 5 minutes to actually cast and start playing.
Love this app! My son loves this app 4/5
I watched PBS growing up and love all of the shows. I do wish they would add more of the older shows too for instants Zoboomafoo. My son absolutely loves that show and this app. It would just be nice for it to have those options too. Thank you for making this app safe and easy for kids to operate on their own it comes in handy.
Great for kids 4/5
This app is very easy to use and has great shows and content. I removed one star because I would like to be able to block/limit some shows and do not see the option to do so.
Auto stream feature and lack of bilingual options 3/5
We love the PBS KIDS app but wish that there was a way to turn off the auto-play for episodes. I wish there were an option to turn off the feature so that my kids didn’t get automatically sucked into the next episode. Netflix allows you to turn this off and it’s easier to manage kids’ viewing. Also, we are a bilingual household and we
are disappointed there is no way to put the audio in Spanish. Are there any plans to add these features to the PBS kids app?
Love it out auto play should be optional 2/5
Love the app and all the wonderful content. Just wish auto play was optional. The self limiting nature of one episode at a time is super useful for limiting screen time. I can see circumstances where letting it auto play would be useful but having the option to turn it off seems common sense. Love, a life long PBS fan and contributor - with a toddler who loves Daniel Tiger a little too much :)
Love it but.... 5/5
By Keke Kind
I love the shows but.... I watch so many.... then it doesn’t work.... it plays part of it then I miss 5 mins of it. So please fix that. Thank You!
Hi pbs 5/5
Martha speaks should rerun. If it is okay with the creator(s).
I liked it 3/5
By potter fan 🌠🌠
Me and my little sister had this app. I eventually stopped liking it and decided to move on. It was a great app other then the fact I needed to take a while to finally find the show I wanted to watch. My sister loves it and she’s seven. I’m eleven and this is the app I vividly remember. Thanks you so much pbs kids! :) 🙃
Love it but I have a suggestion. 5/5
By catcalls Greg
I like it because it has a lot of my favorite videos especially elenor wonders why. But I get sad when I get into my mom’s car because it has no WiFi and I want to watch my videos and can you put floogals back on the app I like that show. So I like it but about that can you change that. If you do that in the update THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Great game !!!!!!!!!! 5/5
I love PBS kids. I had this game for my whole life and I am 8 tearing 9 August 31. I got this app from my daddy
You're never too old for PBS Kids! 5/5
I was soooo mad when WordGirl stopped airing on our local PBS station—that was my favorite PBS Kids show! Other PBS stations in my area still do air WordGirl, but they air it at 7:30 am and I hate getting up early, even to watch my favorite show. I would end up dozing off in the middle of the show and missing the whole thing! Luckily, though, I've got the PBS Kids Video app, so I can watch WordGirl whenever I want, although I wish we could get more full episodes, especially since we need a way to keep kids entertained during the coronavirus outbreak, and even little kids can get bored of the same few episodes over and over. I understand that you're only able to have a few episodes up at a time, but still. I also want to be able to select favorite shows and find them easily at the top of the list, like I was able to in older versions of the app. It's also cool that this app comes with the PBS Kids sticker pack, but WordGirl stickers would make it even better! And what if you could pick out a custom skin themed to your favorite show? I'll bet the video player would look totally awesome with a WordGirl background!
My only real complaints with this app are:
1. Caillou—need I say more?
2. I would greatly appreciate it if you fixed the captions for seasons 1-6 episodes of Arthur so that they match what the characters are actually saying. (I'm not deaf but I like to read the captions) And some episodes have the captions appear a little bit too late.
3. My iPad is WiFi-only, so I can't use this app where I have no access to WiFi. It would be nice if this app had an offline mode.
4. The WordGirl episode "Mr. Big's Dolls and Dollars/Great Granny May" is incorrectly listed as a different episode, "Jerky Jerk/Becky's Birthday". What's up with that?
Other than that, this app rocks!
Good but auto play is annoying 2/5
First, my kid loves this app and loves to watch shows on it and I never have to worry about him accessing inappropriate material.
The one downside of the app for me- and it’s big enough for me to knock 3 stars off - is that there is no way to turn off the auto play feature, which allows the kid to just veg out. I hate this feature with a passion, because there’s not enough of a pause between videos to give any semblance that a video is over, especially those short 1-2 min clips associated with each show. I much prefer having my kid watch shows on Netflix or Amazon prime because he knows that when the show is over, he has to come ask for permission to watch another show. Please allow for parents to disable the auto play!
PBS kids is a fun and educational and entertaining app for kids like me in my opinion I absolutely love it
By dismey channel
This app keeps crashing on my iPhone but it works on my iPad mini I love this app and I am 13 years old so this app is perfect for me because i am still a kid I hope you can fix this app ASAP please
Came here to watch Arthur. I saw Sesame Street on there and was like “oH iMa wAtcH IT tO bE FuNnY HaU hAU hAu” I saw daveed Diggs. Help
Hi! I am adding to this review because, I clicked the link you guys sent and contacted there but I got no response nor the bug was not fixed. I was able to watch a show once and when I exit it out it’s still crashed when I tried to open it a day later. Hi! The app tends to crash when I open it can you please fix this bug?
Help us out 5/5
It’s my son’s birthday and he wants a shout out his name is chiemelie can u give him one if so that would be great on the show called oof squad
Masks why 1/5
By Cut me in!
Was good until they started promoting masks
Not loading videos on Chromcast 1/5
This is app is very buggy when try use it on Chromecast from my cell phone. This is the only video app we use that has this issue. If you fix the issue I will give the app 5 stars
Get back once upon a pickle 5/5
I haven’t seen it so I’m so so so not happy but can you please get it back!!!!(:
P.S it’s on Sesame Street Thanks(:
By from alexa
Hai I’m alexa pbs kids makes me happy and remembers me from my famili pbs kids changed me always and i love pbs kids
I’m in high school and I still watch Wild Kratts. They created my love for the oceans, so it’s nice to be able to watch them whenever
Pbs Kids Is Amazing 5/5
By ciara ri
I just want to say how I love pbs kids in general. They talk about racism, sexuality, etc. As some people may think “kids shouldn’t be watching or hearing this” I think it’s perfect. It’s almost more educating than school. It’s teaching little kids who are the newer generation, to be open minded and informed. Thank you.
No downloading for offline use 3/5
I LOVE PBS Kids shows. PBS has the most educational content over Disney, Nick Jr, etc & it’s all I have my toddler watch at home. But I am SUPER disappointed that I can’t download shows to our iPad for my him to watch when we travel & are offline. That is the only time I use the app & the reason why I give it 3 stars. It’s 2020! How is this not an option?! We are big road trippers & will be exclusively road tripping for awhile with the coronavirus. It would be nice to have access to all the shows that we pay for with our cable subscription.
Hi I am 13 years old and I used to watch PBS but I loved the show Electric Company can u plz add that again it was an amazing show I miss it and even thou I am 13 I still like the app so just that one minor flaw.
What I think 4/5
The app is nice sometimes it loads slow and I get confused when it to episodes of the same thing but one in Spanish and it gets annoying 🤬😰 but over all good and I like that you can watch live tv thanks oh and when u watch wild Karts there’s like a mini game find the animal to get the disk and it works for other shows to 🥴😄 thanks and bye
Update it with previous Let’s go luna episodes 5/5
By ASPHALT GRANMASTER
I need The episodes “What’s the big idea, Wacky Washi, and beat the beat”. I need those episodes to make an MLG montage. The audio I will be using is asphalt 8 Onyx MLG parody knockdown. Please update this with previous episodes.
So awesome!!! Great for kids education😁 5/5
By Kiara DeCastro❤️
PBS kids is great!! You get to choose the show you want and you can watch it. Like nature cat, wild Kratts, Pinkalicious and Peterifik, Xavier Riddle and the secret Museum, Hero elementary, ready jet go,and so much more! Parents, this is a great app so your kids can learn new things, and have fun at the same time! I even love it!😁
This is so cool 😎 5/5
It is so fun to watch I can watch it all day! It’s fun it’s a very cool app and it’s nice 👍 because you can choose I like to choose a LOT! I’m 8 years old and it’s amazing 😉 I love it!
Just One Suggestion 4/5
If someone didn’t know what to watch, they would press the shuffle button. It shuffles everything on PBS Kids and finds a video you can watch. This would be a great feature for the app, especially when you’re bored.
Good but..... 4/5
By jesus is kind
When I tried to watch Martha speaks instead it put super why,and why is bully for Binky / misfortune teller muted
pbs Kids 5/5
this app is the best when i cant get my 1 year old twins to listen they love it
Wishing I could watch full episodes of Maya and Miguel with my baby boy to show him how good the show was but it’s only short clips of it
Good but... 4/5
I really like the app but sometimes when I go to school my teachers allow us to bring our devices but the day before that I would be watching this app so then I take out my iPad and turn it on and my iPad automatically opens this app and then there is a really loud voice saying “you’re watching Houston public media!” I would really like you to take that voice out
Good channel, app and brand, but it could use some improvements 5/5
Hi, My name is Jovan Gradina, I am 10 years old, I don’t have my own Apple so I am using my dad’s. I REALLY am a big fan of PBS Kids shows (with some favorites including Arthur, Peg + Cat, and Hero Elementary, plus many others) but it could use some improvements, First, lets start with the app, #1, Why isn’t there an option to resume where you left off? #2 When I click on Ready Jet Go!, the theme song audio is a little low, even when I turn the volume up. Can you guys fix this? #3, How come Peep and the Big Wide World isn’t in the on demand section? Next, is some questions about the channel/block itself
#1: Why were the E/I bugs removed
#2: Why is the TV rating bug outside the 4:3 safe zone?
#3 Is Esme and Roy coming to the block anytime soon?
Overall I like PBS Kids and its app and channel but I hope you guys can answer my questions and take my suggestions into consideration, Bye!
EDIT: I have one more question about LIVE TV. Is PBS Kids going to air Nature Cat and Wild Kratts in 15 min slots on July 17 at 1:30 and 1:45AM? This is pretty confusing, PBS usually NEVER does that on the main and PBS Kids channel! Is this an error? My TV guides show the same thing!
Annoying even for kids 1/5
Do you like watching the same thing over and over again? Because while there's a good number of shows on the app, there's only ever about 3 episodes available for each, followed by some number of short segments from each show. This bothers me, but it even annoys my kids. We watched one snow where the same two episodes kept repeating over and over again. Another time the app played the intro of a show three times in a row.
This app is garbage, which is a shame because it's the only app I don't mind my kids playing with without supervision.
2 plus not working 5/5
2 shows full other ones not working please get response please .
Best and Worst Shows 3/5
By 🐺🐟 The Lupine Fish 🐟🐺
Downloaded just to write review, from real TV experience.
1. Wild Kratts. Been watching since I wasn't even in school, always loved. 10/10
2. Xaiver Riddle. Made an entire Roblox game dedicated to it. Bearded kid. 10/10
3. M.O.D. A newer show, really named Molly of Denali. 10/10
4. Nature Cat. Most would disagree. He is so funny yet weird. 9/10 due to bad graphics and might be too weird (I love weird)
5. Hero Elementary. Might not have it yet, but it's great. 8/10 because it's cheesy and "copied Nature Cat's fake-lore-related nickname"
1. Arthur. Some reviews say it all. 1/10 Not appropriate and against the Bible.
2. Something that startes with a C. Find the one describing this show with a "whiny brat" 1/10, clearly
3. Daniel Tiger. Makes plopping sounds when he's going poop. 1/10, ew.
4. Pinkalicious. Just why. 2/10, this is not how girls OR boys act. This boi was at a tea party lol.
5. Let's Go Luna. When this is on the TV, Luna, my doggo, looks at me. 3/10, just why, and the singing things are creepy.
6. (not came out) Elinor Wonders Why. Voices sound too weird. Teaches things that some might already know. ?/10, might actually be good
You might like the things in the worst category, or hate the things in the best. Everybody loves Daniel and thinks Nature Cat is stupid. However, nobody likes the C thing and loves Wild Kratts. This is only my opinion, although a friend has a similar perspective. See, I hate Paw Patrol and made an entire comic set/character group called Paw Pack that also HAAAAATES it. Only my opinion.
PBS KIDS Video app 5/5
I Love it
Please allow parents to block shows 3/5
Love most of the shows on here but it needs a function to allow parents/guardians to block specific shows (looking at you, Pinkalicious and Caillou)
TOO EDUCATIONAL! 1/5
