Server Issue 1/5
So when I like to watch wild kratts every time it says server issue .
The server is down. 1/5
By T. Renee Dean
All day today, I haven’t been able to play any videos because it says “Sorry! There was a server issue.”
I’ve restarted the app many times, and have turned on and off WiFi as well. I even switched to a different WiFi. Now I’m here to let you know there‘s a problem with the app. It loads the app up to the point where the icons appear along the side, but when I click on one of the icons (Daniel Tiger, for example), I only hear the audio playing but the ‘serve issue’ white screen comes up.
Server connection 3/5

When I am trying to watch a video on this app it says Oops there was a server issue now what’s that all about
PBS kids Is awesome but a bug has appeared 5/5
PBS kids is very educational the age range is probably 1 to about 8 there’s nothing bad on any episodes except for one in Arthur it happened in season 22 but every thing is great
The bug that happened is that whenever I get on pbs kids it says no internet try again I know what you are about to say check your internet but I did a bazillion times all my other apps work great except for pbs kids Hope you read this sincerely
Its great 5/5
By PBS Kids is the best for kids
The shows are appropriate for kids. :)
Great app but one problem 5/5
By collins kk
So cillou is a very bad influence on kids he not only disrespects his parent but also is mean to his sister and wines all of the time my two year old sister wines all of the time because of him is there anyway you can make a way to block the shows you don’t want to watch or let your kids watch.but other than that this app is amazing it gives kids and baby’s the knowledge they need to be nice and respectful thanks for making a app where kids can be taught great lessons.
By The only weird person
I get this app is for younger children but there is always instructions or whatever turned on even when I had just turned them off. Otherwise a good app for kids 7 and under
Casting to the TV is a challenge 3/5
Overall PBS provides a generous amount of access to content on their channel without having to verify cable info etc as with most apps of this nature. They also update content frequently. This is lovely! Because my daughter loves watching Daniel and Curious George every day. The most frustrating thing about this app is that it hardly ever casts to the TV especially lately, making it 100% useless for me as this is really the only time we use it. I hope the bugs causing this are fixed soon.
Help Please!!! 😡 1/5
One time, at this app, the server is broken! Can you help fix it? If you can I will give you five stars. Or not, I will give you 0 stars & I quit. So please help me!!! 😎 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
So so so great! 5/5
Absolutely love what PBS kids does! This is all my 2.5 yo son watches and he truly enjoys the shows and picks up all the educational material. I love how I don’t have to worry with PBS and the other PBS apps are phenomenal as well. Thank you PBS, keep it up!
So Far So Good 5/5
Absolutely love the set up of this app. I had been trying to find a video app for my daughter for a while now and I can’t believe it took me this long to think of PBS. I have no critiques or criticism at this point. Keep it up 👍👍
Hard to choose programs, clip length 2/5
I don’t normally rate apps, but this ostensibly family friendly, educational app has led to more fights with my preschooler than I can count. The problem is that you can’t really choose what clip plays next or the length. So our 3-year old ends up demanding to watch the entirety of a clip that could be as long as 25 minutes and then taking the iPad or phone away from him results in a huge tantrum. This app has been a a disaster for our family. I hate it.
Need Chromecast support 1/5
Would love to be able to use this app. Why can’t I stream to Chromecast???
Love the app....when it works!?! 😔 3/5
I love the app for my son and so does he especially if traveling or on a cold rainy day. It’s not working today please fix!
Good Content, Frustrating Apps 3/5
By Curtis R. Shideler
This, like the Roku app, often has issues like the CC/titles of episodes (Daniel Tiger) not matching the actual episode that plays. Plus, the iOS app doesn’t allow you to select episodes and clips. The app is confusing and not as convenient as the Roku app. I wish a cable subscription allowed for choosing any episode instead of just 4 per week. Anyway, content is great, I just hope the app becomes more convenient.
Please add feature to stop auto play! 3/5
We love most of the shows but it would be great to have the ability to turn off the auto play feature. Otherwise my kids will just keep watch even though I’ve said to turn off the TV after the show has ended.

Amazing! What else to say? 5/5
By GachaLuv YT
It’s the best thing! My brother and I watch together all the time! Not only do you guys get kids excited about the education and funny bits, older people want to watch for the story! And the app makes it so much easier! I’ve been able to watch so much odd squad!
Only one thing.. 4/5
By Gamer wolf Hope
ok ok so i love this app very much for my little neice but... i would like it if you would take out Arthur... because i was letting her play on my ipad and i saw the Wedding video and 2 Gay men. I imidiantly deleted it..
Yes I like it. Son cómicos. Comment. En mis tiempos de mí adds, 5/5

Yes call Rivera,Fdez de? Many gente talk
Won’t play keeps showing error 1/5
I have never had any problems for a long time but now it keeps saying it can’t play because you can only use this app in USA and duh I live in the USA I tried reinstalling the app and same thing on my phone and on my TVs help please my kids use this app everyday it has their favorite cartoons
Amazing App!!! 5/5
By Moonwatcher Kitty
This is such an amazing app! My kids enjoy watching their favorite shows! Not only do they love watching PBS kids shows, but they also get educated, and I love that. As long as my kids are happy, then I’m happy! 5 stars for me!! <3
App isn’t working code never worked either
Great for my niece and nephew 5/5
By Eyeless Fish
As an auntie, I want my niece and nephew to be educated, and not just sitting mindlessly watching videos. This app is really good for them. Especially considering my niece will be starting school here soon. Good job.
Broken. Won’t cast 2/5
Great app when it works.
Is bob the builder on here? 1/5
I’m so confused I couldn’t find it I hope it’s on this app. Thanks!
Mom of 4 for real 1/5
By fun 😯
So I was just whacking a show and some inappropriate things were on it I am not going to say what but fix it
Fantastic content/annoying setup 4/5
I wish I had downloaded this sooner, because the content is just so good. I love watching the shows with my 6 yr old and discussing the lessons.
BUT the way the app is set up is pretty annoying. I can’t just go to episode 11 of Molly of Denali. It starts at ep 1 every time, so I have to skip through every episode before it, and they aren’t labeled so sometimes it’s just a guess as to which one I land on. It would be very convenient and great reading skills for my kid if she was able to go through and find particular episodes.
Awesome app 5/5
By animal lover 🦔🐇🐈🐀
I think this is a awesome app and I highly recommend it! 😊 and there are no subscriptions or trials involved. I think 🤔 that’s pretty awesome like when I was trying out the noggin app I deleted it right away because it was waaay to pricy on noggin it said it’s free but it involves a subscription so that’s annoying but with this app it’s perfect 👌

STOP GIVING PEOPLE THE SAME RESPONSE
Great App to get 5/5
Never had a problem with this app. Always updating videos and lots to choose from.
Update: My last review was 4yrs ago and still say the same thing. Love the wide variety of videos!! Never had it mess up or crash on my daughter. Easy to navigate for children. Would recommend to anyone.
Great app. Could be better 4/5
This app is great, but I would appreciate the option to remove shows that we don’t like our kiddo to watch (*cough* Caillou *cough*). Parental controls or customization would be a much appreciated feature in this household.
By carter howard
What happened to The Electric Company I am so mad!!!!!!!🔥😡
A favorite for sure 4/5
My daughter absolutely loves Daniel Tiger and Curious George!! I have to limit her time because she could watch the same show over and over. She is 2. It doesn’t always work so that’s frustrating but she has figured out how to close the show and reload it. Overall it’s a great app. Thank you for Daniel Tiger!!! It’s helped immensely for toddler and mama!!
There was some shows that the kids like watching but one of the shows was Spanish and we tried to change it but it did not work so if they can that would be the change
We love PBS!! 5/5
I really enjoy and appreciate PBS ! For grown ups and kids. I recommend all my friends and family to watch, I don’t know if the developers can make the cast function from the kids app to also detect smart TVs, I know it works for chromecast but not smart TVs. My tv doesn’t have the Pbs kids app either in their store (LG)
But I still manage to put it on the kids tablets.
By app needs update!!!!
Not all the videos work, whenever I try to watch Caillou, It doesn’t load
Everything else works fine
Please fix this
Having issues when linking to chrome cast 2/5
Normally, the app works great but this last update has serious issues when casting to a tv using Chromecast. I use this app on my iPhone and my iPad mini and they both have the same issues.
1) the app will continue playing sound on my phone or iPad after casting onto the Chromecast. The only way to stop the sound from continuing on my devices is by closing the app.
2) the app has issues with live tv. It takes forever for the app to properly cast what’s supposed to be live onto the tv. For example, the app kept playing a different cartoon instead of playing what was live for my region (which I selected). I kept pressing the live tv “button” but it kept playing the cartoon over and over again. It only resolved after I closed the app and tried again.
Both these issues have made the app really difficult and cumbersome to use. I exclusively use Chromecast to use the app since we always cast pbs on our tv for our toddler to watch together as a family.
Please review these bugs and update in the next patch.
App not working properly It’s saying I don’t live in the United States but I do thank you . 2/5
Bye I live in Texas
So long, great app... 1/5
This used to be a five star app. During the last few months, though...😖 There have been so many glitches - from the occasional freezing to freezing and restarting live shows, to the app just not working. Connection problems surface between using WiFi and using just data. I’ve reset the app, reinstalled the app, rebooted my different devices, but the problems persist. I pray this app is permanently repaired, because it’s so necessary.
Awesome app 5/5
This app is amazing you can do anything
By sir waffels🥞🍩🥓
This app is amazing and it lets my children to watch PBS whenever they want!! Super great!🤩
Awesome! Just a few quirks 5/5
I absolutely love pbs kids, and have been watching it since I was born, I'm in middle school now and still watch most of the shows! Anyway, back to the review: I love the idea of this app, but I think that there should be a time near the slider (like on Youtube) to show you exactly how far into the video you are, and a time at the end to show you how long the video is. There should also be access to the little bar at the top of your device that shows what the time is, how much battery you have, etc. and you don't have to close the app to find out. This would make this app so much better, but I still give it 5 stars. Thanks!
Buggy / Annoying Mess of an app 2/5
I would expect better from PBS.
It is common when switching shows for the audio from the original show to continue playing, even after starting a new show. So you end up with two audio tracks playing simultaneously. On the AppleTV the app must be uninstalled and reinstalled or the AppleTV must be rebooted to recover from this bug since exiting and reopening the app doesn’t fix it.
There is no option to disable auto-play after an episode, making it difficult to manage TV viewing time, especially with episodes / video clips that are not consistent in length from one to the next. The app will continue looping episodes one after the next in perpetuity.
Also, there is no way to disable or mute the stream that automatically starts when launching the app.
And subtitles always default to on when launching the app.
Does not stream anymore 2/5
I use this app to stream Daniel Tiger for my daughter and it no longer works. It worked for a couple months and has just stopped. One sad little girl misses her tiger friend.
Didin’t like it😕😕 1/5
It’s really short but I don’t like it because I’m not from US and it doesn’t let me watch it because it says I got to be from the US...I wish the fix that.
daniel tigers neighborhood is cancelled! 2/5
pbs kids just announced that daniel tigers neighborhood is currently cancelled!
