There’s a bug bugging me out 3/5
Okay so when I’m watching one of the episodes, A wheel will pop up and bring me to a whole different time and episode. Then I lose the one I was watching. The apps ok if you ask me but I wanna stay on the same episode until it’s done
Mixing Streams 2/5
Live TV auto plays even before app finishes the starting animation. The animation takes too long and the chime that plays with it is loud. The live TV doesn’t shut off when navigating away from the main screen and continues to play after starting a different video. Audio from Live TV is mixed with the audio from the video visible on screen.
Baby Ruth 5/5
Can you please put some water adventure for the wild carts on the app please and can you make an episode of how they met and formed together as a team please thank you
Great app, almost there with it! 4/5
We love this app. We only watch Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers. Our baby is 19 months and everything moves so fast, even Sesame Street. We’d like to be able to choose episodes, or for it to randomize episodes each time we choose the program. It plays the same one every time and they’re all in the same order, so we press forward a few dozen times to try and find a new episode. Please load more episodes of Mr. Rogers! Or we’ll have to use YouTube or something for our boy. The 80s and early 90s programming was the best. Thank you for putting this together!
I downloaded this bc I love Arthur and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Hulu/Netflix don’t have these so I’ve been watching this on YouTube but then I had the “rootle” channel on and saw the commercial and was like oh okay this may be better than watching others fuzzy recordings on YouTube with a million ads but Arthur wouldn’t even load and it won’t like I imagined maybe I had to high of hopes and compared it to Netflix/Hulu and how you can choose what episodes you want like idk lol but I couldn’t even figure out how to choose a show for a while and this is for children lol but I waited an hour and then deleted and reinstalled and still same issue but I’ve figured out what time these shows come on but I’m in poor health and am asleep most likely durning these times so.. I wish that Hulu or Netflix would pick up these shows I mean wouldn’t like they make more money doing that anyways? It’s a win win right? Idk lol but I understand that the app is free and there’s going to be issues and bugs to work around etc I just didn’t think it’d be this bad.. but in the future I think it’ll improve a lot I have high hopes for it! c:
Hard to find what you need to find... 4/5
By dabcat jack 99
I can't find anything without browsing through hundreds of episodes of different shows, so please add a search bar please. Otherwise I like the app. But add more shows they are not all there. Thank you!
Can't activate on apple tv 1/5
After I enter the activation code, the pbskids.org site does not show the local networks for me to choose. So I am unable to activate my account.
Love the app 4/5
I love this app for my kids I give it 4 stars because I updated because it wasn’t working and it still isn’t working and won’t play anything.
Wonderful app with a few appleTV issues 4/5
We use this app constantly and really love it. However, on the Apple TV, the audio is a little funky. When you open the app, a video will auto play above the list of shows. Once you click into a show and start watching it, the audio from the main menu video continues alongside the audio from the episode you’ve chosen. It’s a little frustrating because you have to close and reopen the app to solve the problem. Any chance you could look into this, developers? Aside from that, great app!

This App Is Good For Home And Vacation 5/5
By Beating Drum
The Shows On This App is amazing. And Can you PBS Kids add Cyberchase to the stickers app so I can say “Live From New York It’s Cyberchase!”
So babyish👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 1/5
By Alice Escobar
I first got this Game I thought it was justFine but it’s babyish I don’t know why I got the game but it just looked interesting for me and I’m a grown-up if you’re a kid don’t buy this up it’s too babyish for you and I really don’t like this they don’t buy it please !if you do tell me
Not an Education App 1/5
This is not an entertainment app. I want to limit my child's video watching with screen time settings, but I can't do do for this app without limiting other actual education apps. Please reclassify.
Good but antother app.. 3/5
By game lover 👾🦄🦄🦄
Ok so kart kingdom is not on here
I’ve been connected again 2/5
I’m only eight years old and I’ve been loving this app ever since I started playing it. My mom loves it too because there is still old shows like Mr. Rodgers and we really like that. This app is great I can’t see why some people don’t like it. This app is a really great game. I’d recommend it to anyone for like seventy to four. It’s a great game to watch on the go... or at home when somebody is hogging the T.V. I’ve felt so happy and in a great mood after I got this app.

Problems connecting to server 3/5
We love this app but lately hasn’t been working. Not sure if it’s just us. I’ve deleted from iPad and phone and reinstalled and still can’t connect. Is there an issue happening with the app? It’s been like this for 3 days now.
Update: the app just crashes. It definitely works better on iPad and iphone vs amazon fire tablet but many times we get an error message and it will crash or I have to force close the app and try again
Latest Nov 6 Update no longer can connect 1/5
Thanks to the latest update our Spectrum child can no longer watch PBS kids on his iPad 1 and we can't get him a better one at this time, why did you do it why can't you just leave well enough alone? It worked fine yesterday some glitches here and there but it worked how are supposed to explain to him that he can no longer watch it on his IPad? Believe me you wouldn't want to be the one who had to try to explain to an ASD kid!
Wrong picture 5/5
You have the wrong picture. Its supposed to have Cat in the Hat not Peg + Cat.
Love everything except the sound 4/5
The app is great but for some reason at max volume it is barely a whisper on the Fire tablet where my daughter watches it the most.
Please bring PBSKIDSGO.org back.
I don’t care what it takes or how long it takes, so BRING BACK PBSKIDSGO.org AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing and free! 5/5
I love that my favorite tv channel when I was a kid is also available for free for my daughter! Thank you PBS for not going corporate crazy like all the other streaming options out there.
Somewhere in the last few updates the Apple TV app won’t stop playing the live feed. If I choose to watch something else such as Sesame Street for instance, it will play that AND the live feed at the same time.
Needs to be fixed.
😍 love it! You should get it!
Great but why? 3/5

Justin’s reviews 5/5
I love PBS kids!
I love PBS kids! 5/5
By I L❤️VE PBS KIDS!!!
You know here are 5 reasons why I LOVE pbs kids
1. It lets me watch odd squad which is my favorite show on PBS Kids
2. I love how it’s for little kids and it actually surpriseing that I’m 10 and I love the app
3. It’s great for little kids
5.I mean I have nothing else to say I’m speechless
AppleTV app is quirky in the new update 4/5
The AppleTV app doesn’t seem to play the “live” tv any more. Also sometimes after launching the app and then selecting a video, the initial audio stream will continue underneath the selected video. A force quit will fix this.
Also the iPhone app is named “Watch Videos”. This can make finding it by name amongst a bunch of other apps kind of difficult. Normally I think “PBS Kids” as the name of the PBS Kids app would be a good name. 😉
I LOVE IM A KID 5/5

SO MUCH MR ROGERS
Apple TV playing multiple audio feeds at once 3/5
By mister porche
Friends—when we’re streaming a show on the PBS kids app for Apple TV, and then we pause the show, when we hit play and restart the show we can hear both the show audio and the audio from the slash video of the home screen simulteneously. Seems like there’s a bug to find. Happy hunting!
Great app!!!! 👍👍👍 5/5
I love this app it’s watching funny videos but it’s for kids and it’s cool I love it and everyone should get it ❤️❤️😃😃👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
Update: after this new update I downloaded the all again in all 3 platforms and its working👍🏻
More than 3 weeks or so I’ve been trying on the iPhone app, iPad and also AppleTV and none of them work anymore!
Not working 1/5
Cannot watch videos. Try Again. Try Again x 10000000
Love content - app kinda buggy 3/5
I love PBS kids content and so does my 3 year old. It’s so good!
But... Biggest complaint - how do I close the app on my iPhone X?
The usual gesture to pull up app windows and close them on the button-less iPhone X doesn’t work in this app. So, once I launch it, I can’t close it, no matter what I swipe or tap. I have to shutdown my phone with side buttons and totally restart, just to close the app. Please fix that. 😕
Cannot connect on WiFi 1/5
I have to use LTE data to watch. Cannot watch on WiFi. It’s been weeks and everything else works on WiFi but this app. Hope you find a fix
Seriously 🙄 1/5
Ok I swear it’s a cool app but seriously it’s blocked in Mexico I come often and my cousins would like to watch it but they can’t so umm can you not
Is there a child lock option? 5/5
By mommy cameron
I and my son love to watch one together with all the shows. I have been watching it since my first son was born. He is now 13. I would love though if I could hand the tablet or phone to my child and push buttons all over. Is there somewhere on there I could lock the screen so he can’t change it?
Cannot Connect to Server Issue 4/5
We can no longer connect to app...”cannot connect to server” is the error message. Using IPad with IOS version 12.0.1. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling app, rebooting iPad, nothing works.
This is my daughters favorite app, and we never had any problems before.
Apple TV Issues 3/5
The app is great and love the updated layout for the iPhone, iPad and the Apple TV apps. My kids love having all their shows in one place. BUT we don’t get any sound when we use the app on our Apple TV and HomePod as our speakers. Other devices work fine. Apple TV and HomePod are only ones not working. :(
Great Apple TV app with one big flaw 3/5
My daughter loves so many of these shows, and we love knowing that she is learning while she has fun watching her favorite characters.
However, the new Apple TV app has two BIG flaws.
1) There is now a logo permanently located in the upper left corner, which poses a risk of burning into my TV screen. Whereas my daughter shouldn’t be watching hours of TV, it’s still one of the main things we watch day to day. OLED TVs are on the rise and I’m sure I’m not the only one affected by this. PLEASE developers, can we turn this logo off?
2) Sometimes the audio for the promo which starts auto playing doesn’t turn off when you go into a show menu, and the app needs to be restarted or you hear two audio tracks simultaneously. This happens nearly every day for me.
Content is 5 stars, but I’m dropping it to 3 until these issues are fixed.
Please restore AppleTV app 1/5
The TV app was great. Now it blares shows while you’re trying to find what to watch. And finding what to watch is made supremely difficult by an odd two row scroll to the side which makes it difficult to locate content.
Awesome app!!! 5/5
Can y’all please make a quick way to get a specific episode?
I love this app!!!! 5/5

By Jazz Bligen
Thank yu. For making this as a app.. My 7 year old grew up on PBS and my 1 year old loves PBS.. With the app being convenient on the go. Ah man its the best.
If you could please... 3/5
By Why you little toy
Please add something other than just learning
videos maybe you would get more money from
our electricity bill. My apps are boring enough as it is.
Poorly designed for parents 2/5
This app has great video but it seems like it was designed to drive parents crazy.
1. It has a special video player that doesn’t show you how long the videos are or how much time is left. This makes it very hard to manage my kid’s screen time, resulting in tears and frustration.
2. It is not possible to download videos for viewing offline for example during plane trips or long car rides.
3. Streaming videos uses HUGE amounts of data. My daughter watched about 3 hours during a car trip using my cellular service. This used up 9 gigabytes of data and blew out my cellular plan. This is crazy! These are cartoons. There is no reason for them to use so much bandwidth.
This could be a great app but it is currently parent-hostile. PBS could fix it if they just considered what it is like for real world families to use it.
Love this alternative 💙 5/5
I’ve been watching PBS since I was a little kid and now my 2.5 year old is loving watching too! Great educational and wholesome shows. Plus we love the live feature. It’s a great alternative for families without cable and don’t want to go down the YTkids path. Keep up the good work!
It’s a great app 4/5
