  • Pbs rocks the brains of the little people. Dec 1, 2019

    By viceviking
    I loved pbs as a kid and still love it to this day. This is an amazing app because it brings with it old childhood memory’s. In the future I hope we keep pbs around with enough donations. Because I would extremely like it for my kids in the future as long as it doesn’t become some way of trying to manipulate my children through the shows. Please always keep it the same. Besides that I find pbs great because I have had conversations with other “adults” who are to “mature” for the shows 😂 and have found that pbs has taught me things the most adults don’t know, but here is the thing. I gave the app a four star because it doesn’t seem to be as organized as it could be. I like the individual tabs that show the shows and main characters. When you click on them though most of the episodes cut out before the show ends or begins or even in the middle sometimes like not all of the episode is there? Also it would be cool if we could just get all seasons and episodes all in chronological order like. Season 1 episode 1,2,3 and so on. That way the viewers can choose or pick favorite episodes for there kids. Or make it so you could bundle all your favorites together. I am so glad you guys have cyberspace and Clifford and many others on here. Coming from a viewer like me. Thank you! For creating such a good education program for kids. One of my favorites is Sid the science kid!

    Omgoodness my child loves, loves, loves this app. All 3 of my lil ones enjoy it, but my 9 year old spends the most times w/your apps. He has moderate to severe autism & SPD. He can find much calm through this app, and usually uses it while bouncing on his peanut ball & w/his sensory sack. He brings the tablet & PBS w/him & it is soothing for him.

  • Terrific App!!! When it works :/ Nov 29, 2017

    By Rachelswork
    I love PBS. We are PBS supporters. I love this PBS kids app. We mostly watch Daniel tiger and Sesame Street. However, sometimes the app doesn't work. Today is one of those days where the "wheel of death" just keeps spinning around and around and around with no loading of any kind. Other times when it doesn't work, it's more of a connection problem for casting to the TV. Most of the time if I have the app on the background of my phone, casting to the TV, while I do other things like make phone calls etc, if I open the app again it completely refreshes and causes disconnection with what was already play on the TV (it'll start the episode over again or go to live TV or even the wheel of death comes on the TV because it's getting mixed signals). This is annoying. But not enough to make me hate the app, just disappointed. 4 ⭐️ because I LOVE PBS but the app needs a bit of tweaking.

    Hi I’m Meredith a mom of 3 girls Priscilla Ammonia and Lilia. My youngest daughters Priscilla and Ammonia have begged me for this app since forever and they really enjoy playing on this app. I got all episodes unlocked for them. They enjoy watching episodes of their favorite shows and sometimes I even watch along with them. PBS kids helps me get the stuff I need to get done well they watch tv on their tablets. This app is very educational and will help my girls in the future! You can play games, watch shorts and even watch you’re favorite shows! This app is going to help my children learn and grow throughout the future. They can learn social skills and more skills that will be successful for them. You can watch shows anytime and anywhere. I use to love PBS when I was little and I’ve passed it off to my girls and then new generations will always like it! PBS is like my childhood donation! I have many memories of this! I still have the app so I can interact with my daughters and teach them more so they can get ready for the school year!

    Love this!! All of the shows are appropriate and i dont mind letting my 3yr old watch videos without worry that she will click on something she shouldn't see. I also like the live tv option. I prefer this to youtube kids. Better educational content and no uploaded videos from people just making their own channel. I deleted the youtube kids after i got pbs kids. Well done.

    Moto x4 unlocked. Every time I open the app and select a video, the app begins glitching and picks random other videos. Until this is fixed, I cannot use the app.

    PBS isn't what it use to be. I do not want my children to use this app any longer due to the hate from people they hire. Loved PBS for 40 years, sorry to say good bye.
  • Having issues when linking to chrome cast Jul 29, 2019

    By G4|\/|3R
    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.

    Can't play videos anymore. Anyone knows why?
  1. Kids can now watch their favorite PGS KIDS series in a child-friendly experience anywhere with a 3G or WiFi connection
  2. If you're in the USA you can watch any PBS KIDS series with new full episodes added every Friday
  3. Hey, parents! You too can use this to access TV schedules, learn about shows, download other PBS Kids related apps, and buy shows from Google Play

  • Good channel, app and brand, but it could use some improvements Jul 16, 2020

    By bgradina
    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! - Jovan 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!

  • Please please please! Sep 6, 2017

    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.

  • No restrictions on shows Mar 6, 2019

    By RaeRae0210
    I think the app is great with one exception, there are no show restrictions, I love PBS and how they have educational shows but I don’t feel like all of them are appropriate for my 3 year old. I would like to be able to restrict access to certain shows. Such as Cyberchase for example (I really don’t see how educational that show is at least for his age) or to have the ability to add certain shows so that he’s only watching what I’m okay with him watching. Other than this I love the app, it’s convenient, he can flip through he shows and watch Daniel Tiger and if he’s bored with that he can switch to Sesame Street, etc.

    This app is fantastic and works well on a variety of the devices we own. Only reason I knocked off a star is because I cannot find a way to lock the touchscreen while in app to keep my kids from constantly changing the videos. Add this feature please!

    I love the amount of content I can access and works well on my phone but the casting options do not work so knocking off stars as its less useful to stream content to the tv, so not sure I'll really be able to use this app.
  • New Episodes? Dec 31, 2019

    By Bjf217
    This is a wonderful app. It can get glitchy at times but usually is resolved with an appletv restart. My only complaint is the rotation of available full episodes. Maybe there are contractual conflicts or something else but it seems like even when new episodes are rotated on, they are the same episodes that were just rotated out. If your kiddo only watches 2 or 3 shows this gets old pretty quickly. We are a curious George house and the howlin Hal episode has been playing for years. When my kiddos have screen time options I want them to want Pbs kids, but that is getting less and less likely because the same episodes of their favorite shows have been in heavy rotation for over a year and sometimes two.

  • Love PBS Kids - wish the app was more consistent Dec 15, 2019

    By Katicita919
    We absolutely love and support public TV and radio in our household. Thank you for providing free access to quality shows for our toddler, like Daniel Tiger! Unfortunately, I can only get the app to work maybe a quarter of the time. We pick the episode and cast to the TV, and it starts to load, but all we get is a black screen with the PBS Kids logo in the corner. We’ve tried rebooting the Chromecast and using other HDMI ports, but the issue persists. Other apps work fine, so there’s something with this app that causes an issue. And I definitely can’t pause or change anything about the video once it is playing, or I’ll get the same black screen. We love Daniel Tiger - please help!
