This is a fantastic app and it's used a lot by our five year old. My only issue is the data usage. When we first started using it there was an option for lower quality video vs. HD to reduce data use when you were on your network plan. That option has been taken out (or maybe I just can't find it anymore) and the amount of data this app now uses is staggering. Make SURE you have a WIFI connection or unlimited data. Frustratingly, this app also has issues disconnecting when minimized (currently on Android KitKat, though this has been an issue for awhile now), so you can't be sure the app isn't drawing data unless you manually close it out of the tray. I still highly recommend it, but you might have to have some rules governing when it can/can't be used.

We love streaming from the PBS Kids app, and we cast to our TV. We really wish the app didn't force our phones into landscape mode the moment we launch it though! It's super frustrating, and it happens even when we have auto-rotate turned off. There's no reason for it to be in landscape when we're not watching it from that device. We'd love to see this changed in a future update. Thank you.

The content of PBS does are great as always. I use this app to cast shows on the TV. It would be helpful to have an in-picture scrolling and time bar (?). Sometimes, the kids want to rewatch a song/scene, and trying to find the start of it is like a stab in the dark. Also, the "grown up" button just changes the show that's playing. I don't understand the function or the purpose of that button.

Hi Miju - Thanks for your review and suggestions. You are not the first to suggest the need for a more Grownups oriented UI/UX. We will look into improving this! The Grownups section is intended to provide adult users with the ability to learn more about PBS KIDS resources. Thanks again for supporting PBS KIDS! - Best, the PBS KIDS team
