crashing on load

Wanted to play some kids shows for my son, but the app doesn't even open. Starts loading some screen and then crashes to desktop.

Freezing/Crashing/Not working

It stops in the middle of the cartoon saying "Loading." After it gets loaded, it starts the cartoon, and does it again. This is very aggravating, even more for a child!!

Since even my childhood

Ever since my childhood PBS has always had great programs. Even now these shows and the website help , and have helped my kids in so many ways. The whole family loves many of the shows that are on PBS. Thanks for all those wonderful years.

First the app worked but after a while when I tried to watch my favorite shows. First it starts for like ten seconds playing the show but then it starts to load and foes back to home page it is a constant repeat. The thing is I daily charge my phone I have no apps and my phone is a little less than a year old. I love the idea of the app and it started out great but I wish they would update it to fix the needs of the app

Distorts after recent update

After updating to windows 10 the video distorts as if there is no end to the side and its stretching all the way to the right side of the window.

This AP is great on iPhone but awful on windows phone. Hangs, navigation bar doesn't hide on full screen mode so, when it finally plays my kids thumb always hits the button and it closes. Dumb. Fix this thing or remove it from the store. Booo!
