What's New in Version 2.3.1
minor bug fixes
Annoying that there is no option to put on tv
I hate that you took all your shows off Netflix. I loved having them available on there because I can stream the shows to my tv. I hate hate having my kids use my phone and that's my only option now if I want them to watch something educational. So now I get to chance having my phone broken because I don't have a tablet or Apple TV to be able to stream your show to my tv. I have chrome cast.
It's annoying you have commercials and it's also annoying to have another app to have to use to watch the pbs shows just taking up more space when we all ready had Netflix.
Why the commercials?
This app has great content. The new refresh is really puzzling. The profusion of commercials confuses and annoys my kids and makes them not like the app near as much. Now they mostly watch PBS content on other apps. The puzzling part is that the commercials are just for other PBS shows. Why interrupt PBS content with PBS content at the expense of the user experience? If they were paying commercials it mike make sense, but I am at a loss here.
Good enough when it works, but not as good as it could or should be
App often has trouble connecting to chromecast. Doesn't show full episodes, shows clips so there is no coherent story line. I think kids benefit from coherent story lines, so I'm not very satisfied. At least it always worked on Netflix! I have a kindle, but the kindle is very touchy and ends up frustrating my son.
