What's New in Version 3.0.4
Used to love this app!
Since the most recent update video will not chromecast anymore. I used to love this app because it was the only for my daughters to watch Wild Kratts and Dinosaur Train. Now it sends some kind of menu that I cannot in any way interact with, instead of the video I am trying to watch.
It's really hard for them to both watch on my phone, and most times I actually need my phone if they're watching something.
Chromecast Issue Resolved
The Chromecast issue that turned up in the last version release has been resolved and my review is once again 5 stars.
