5.0 out of 5 stars Great App for Kindle Fire November 10, 2012
By crlenn
Verified Purchase
I was skeptical about downloading this app since my Kindle Fire refuses to play videos from the internet including the videos from the CW Network app which I previously downloaded to my Kindle Fire. Just to be clear, the PBS Kids app is specifically designed for the Kindle Fire. It plays video clips from all of the children shows on the PBS network; Curious George, Dinosour Train, Sesame Street, ect. The app even plays full episodes of some of the shorter telivision shows. The video picture expands to the size of the Kindle screen and flips as you turn the tablet whereas other apps are stuck in the upright position and won't turn with the tablet. It does take some time for the video to load, but once loaded it plays without issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great App! November 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
Let me preface by saying we use WiFi at home. Let me also say I have a Kindle Fire HD. Im not aware of any issues as I haven't read the reviews on this... so I can only explain that my four year old loves this app. He has access to many PBS shows and they feature different shows every week (so ive been told) My son is fairly easy to please. I have seen the Super Why Halloween show 6 times in the last day :) Its easy to run, doesn't eat alot of memory.. and has a simple user interface for him. I couldn't be more pleased. The downside (even though it doesn't bother him or I) is you dont get that clear HD picture. But it's not a deal breaker for us.

2.0 out of 5 stars buggy November 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
I really like that this app is available for the kindle fire HD but it doesn't work half the time. It takes a while to load videos and after one minute or so the screen turns black but the sound is still going. If i tap the home button it shows me the carousel with the PBS audio still running in the background. I need to force quit the app 90% of the time.
I actually deleted the app off the Kindle fire HD but my daughter wanted it so much i needed to download it again. However she gets so mad when it doesn't work smoothly & that is getting on my nerves too. I'm hoping the problems will be fixed soon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Needs bug fix March 9, 2014

The play button won't leave the center of the screen, you can watch the show but you have a larger play button in the forefront, not very excited for a two year old

I love this for my little one, the only thing I don't like is the fact that when we travel, he can not watch it, other than that, he has hours of fun watching, and learning.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only works half the time January 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
I first had this app on my iphone and it worked great for a while then it just plain wouldn't load the video feed. So when I got me a new Kindle HD I was hoping it would act better well, no such luck it's actually worse on the Kindle. However my kindle has issues playing video. IDK why but it just plain dosen't want to play anything on the PBS Kids app.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible app December 27, 2012
By lina
Verified Purchase
Terrible. It never works. Videos never load and when I open the app now, it starts shutting out and trying to load and shuts down then reloads again and again and again. All within 3 seconds I have to shut my kindle down because it won't stop doing it!! Just terrible.
My kids were so excited to see this app for the kindle. Instead we will stick to watching on my iPhone.
