It is sooo good for my little bro and sis, just one complaint it doesn't auto update

Aaron Clayton

Bad Loads app fine but won't load any vids so another crappy thing made by the gov well done

Michael Rumbiolo

SUCKS Im 8 years old so i instald it for my baby sister but she cant woch eny shows so it is the worst game ever im nether instaling it again so abc for kids has to update it ?

Augie D'Costa

Only to give suggestions Great app cos it has all the great shows and little one loves it.. But I have to hold it for him to make sure he doesn't press any buttons or make calls. Also.. Should have an "auto next episode mode" that combined with some sort of "lock to abc kids mode" would make this app virtually 5 stars in every way as I've had no other issues. Please please please add this on. Thankyou.

Kerri O'Connor

Great idea I have been on holidays with two four year olds and this has been a constant when when they were tired and cranky. Of course no one else wanted to watch endless hours of octonauts and petr rsbbit. Thank you.

Rebecca Triffett

Tab 2 App works well but wont play any of the shows. I have Galaxy tab 2. Seems to work fine on Galaxy tab 3 though. Please fix.

Sharon Hutman-Pearce

Disappointed Cannot load any of the tv shows, my kids were extremely disappointed & upset that it doesn't work. I would of given it 5 stars if it worked for us :( :( :(

megan rowe

Doesnt load shows It doesnt load the shows my 2 year old wants to watch, shes very disappointed. Please fix this asap.


Great app but needs lock functionality As above good app for the kids however it needs lock functionality as my son can't help but press the screen when he gets excited. Also a play all button would be good for the car.

Patricia Wang

My kid loves it Thank you ABC! A well thought of app. One improvement if possible: can it support non touch screen android devices? I installed it on my android TV, it wouldn't let me scroll to the next screen nor can I select a video...

Marcia Maclarn

Its ok but.. Where is this "abc play" app they keep advertising?! Also have to hold the phone to ensure little minion doznt push buttons to call etc etc..

Suzy Krasniqi

Awesome All their current shows and its free. Cant wait for next app to be available on here

Stuart Nicholson

Works on phone not in tablet Works fine on Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but unable to load vids on my Galaxy tab, which is disappointing. Would give it 5 stars if it worked across all my devices.

Laura Elliott

A life saver! Very helpful at keeping my daughter still when we were at the doctors!

kasey smith

Was working fine now will load home screen but wont play any of the videos

Cindy Pearce

Our Little girl loves this app Great app. if it automatically played the next episode (or there was an option to "play all") and also if the screen locked while the episodes are playing it would be even better. But still a great app to keep little minds occupied while in the car etc.

Bev Wiseman

current ABC 2 episodes perfect for sitting at Drs.....In the car etc.....Emma rules!

Chase Pursche

Samsung galaxy tab 3 lite 7'. App loads fine but does not play any shows. I and my daughter are devastated. Please fix this

Lisa L

Works perfectly on Samsung Galaxy Tab2 And I can control which shows my little guy can watch. There is an option for limiting screen time (but I haven't figured out how that works because it doesn't appear to switch off after the 30 min limit I've set). No ads, and no tears if he misses something on the tv.

Zlatko Sajnovic

Loads but does not download shows Does not work on galaxy tab 2

Dalibor Mitrovic

Loading Problems I installed the app and I am Not even able to load the episodes. I tryed every single show but nothing, it is just loading and loding and there is no end or stop. ....and still loading.....

Damien Irving

My 2yo loves this app I never showed my daughter this app she discovered it herself and learnt to use it and discovered her favorite show (Bing). I can't find any Chromecast options? seems like an obvious feature. Also the back button should be identifiable as a back button (kidified but consistent with common UI design).

Simm Beeston

The idea is great, but this needs a parent lock and chrome cast support.

Gary Krueger

Great little app Excellent for the kids, easy to use and well set out. Looking forward to being able to cast.

Rachael Dean

ABC I view app My 4 an 21 mths old boys just love it this abc kids 4 an perfick app just 4 kids an any big kid at heart like myself

Damon Abbey

No casting?!? ? Selection is good and great that it is free... however, when will the ability cast it be added? (As per the standard ABC app) - so I can get my tablet back

Amin Shayan

Great app and content but... No chromecast!?! C'mon how hard is it really.

Bek Fuller

Have to keep installing and uninstalling. Mr 2 gets very frustrated when it stops loading shows

Hayden Byrnes

Awesome Service When I downloaded this app on my Galaxy Tab 2 it would not play any videos. After an email to ABC Childrens TV, details found within the app, they responded quickly with some recommended device setting. Now all works well.

Rachel Bowrey

Have to wait for the video to load HATE it hate it hate it hate it

Sonja DT

Awesome I love it. I've never had any problems with it, in any way. Loads the videos, plenty of great programs for my son to watch and it appears to load the programs regularly.

Stuart Stuartson

Almost perfect Works great. Please consider a button lock out mode and chromecast functionality, it would make this perfect!

Johnny Antolis

Great but It would be better if it had a playlist feature so I could put all the shows in a row instead of having to play each episode for my daughter. Other than that, great app.

Natalie Skiller

Update broke App Finally available on Android. This app WAS a lifesaver and I rated it 5 stars. However the most recent update seemed to break the app. Now no shows appear on the screen and shows cannot be played. When it is fixed I'll change my rating.

James Lemon

Does not work After install it says all currently available shows are turned off. Never used the app yet so makes no sense.

Christopher Hhancock

My 3yr old loves it watchs all his favorite shows

Nirzara Patel

Wow My sister spends hours in the ipad and lets me enjoy


For baby goats, not grown men. A grown man can't possibly be mentally stimulated by the contents of ABC's iview? On a good note though, this keeps three year old children off the streets, and away from drugs. So thank-you. Imaginations contorted.

Tie Khun

Does not play videos Just a load screen but doesnt play videos. Looks like a hangup crap program bug.

Rodney Allen

Video Loading Issues As per other reviews, app loads fine but videos do not load. Just stays on the loading symbol. This is for a Galaxy Tab A. Is there a way to rectify this issue? Otherwise this would be a very useful app for my 3yo.


Chromecast Please add chromecast, it is ridicukous to have this on such a tiny screen for children. Also i don't have an accessible antennae plug. Pretty awesome otherwise

Latisha Peters

Fails to play video Keeps popping up with please check your internet connection when using mobile data. Fix it please and I'll be happy to rate with higher stars

Sam Moore

Works well on my phone cant get to load any vids on the tablet

Chris Marinos

Does not want to work Galaxy s6 - have installed and uninatalled multiple times. Sometimes works on 4g data, does not like wifi at all.

Amber Celeste

Fantastic except... Fantastic app. Video sound & quality is amazing. Love the timer, adult only access to settings & the fact we can choose what shows they can select. My 2.5yo can easily navigatr it himself. Also only uses little data. HOWEVER - it needs a lock function. To lock in the app so the kids can't access the rest of the device by pushing a button accidentally. It also needs a casting function. This way we can cast to a tv or other device. This way I can still use my phone while my child can watch a few shows.

Matt Rowcliffe

iOs app at least works, this doesn't I'm not a huge fan of the interface to start with, but this froze 20 seconds into videos. Grab my wife's iPhone, same video no problems. If you aren't serious about android support, just take it off the store and leave it as iOs only.. Easier to explain to the kid that it only works on mums device than to get 20 seconds in and dies....

Linda Taylor

Absolutely brilliant! Must have for younger kids. Have waited for ages for the ABC apps, so happy they now have a few. My youngest son loves play school and watches as he goes to sleep. Now he can do that on his tablet. BEST APP EVER FOR YOUNGER KIDS..... BRILLIANT ! ! ! UPDATE REVIEW was a 5* review but like others videos just stopped working. VERY DISAPPOINTING. PLEASE FIX IT. fix it & it will be 5 stars again.

George Stasinopoulos

Doesn't work I have a Samsung galaxy tab 3 and this app doesn't work on it.

Deanne Coffey-O'Brien

Won't open I have the same app on another device and it works perfectly. The newest update sucks

Joy Boonsom

Doesn't work Everytime i go to play a video it says to check internet connect. I am connected and using the internet and it still says im not.

Wall Fur

Great, but why portrait?! One has to continually switch between landscape and portrait because the menu doesn't allow landscape, and the video is microscopic in portrait. Not very good for little eyes and, frankly it's poor design. Just stick to landscape only. Then everything will just work.

Hope Pountney

My son loves it I was initially worried it take up too much data on my mobile plan, however I was pleasantly surprised! This ap keeps my son happy when we're out and about!!

Dan Baazman

Broken after update Latest update seems to have broken this app. Crashes when you start a video. Happens on two different devices.

Luca Ranieri

Unreliable This app gets your kid addicted then crashes never to work again. Tells me i have no internet when i clearly do. Must be due to me owning an S5

Kai Lian

This app is keep crashing on my android set top box, which's uses android 5.1 version.

James Hector

Good but no Chromecast Great interface and content but the lack of Chromecast support is a major let down considering the main iview app supports it. My daughter is all over Chromecast for Netflix and YouTube kids and would really like to watch this app on the big screen.

Tianhao Li

One year later and still no Google cast support Material design and Chromecast support is must

Kirsty Walkee

Fix it!!! Would be good, if i could useit. Keeps telling me no Internet connection. I have unintalled and reintstalled and still no change. Would also love tobe able to cast it!!!

David Paterson

Great app but would suggested adding a lock screen option while video playing as well as a chromecast option to screen to the TV. Great content through. A firm favorite

Stephen Thorley

Good but no chrome cast The normal iView app has chrome cast so why not the kids one? Otherwise a great app.

Chris Colborne

Great, apart from lack of Chromecast!

Hamish Cross

Absolutely awesome Free cartoons for kids, no adverts, tax payer money going to something useful instead of politician helicopter rides

Rosalee Beloti

ABC iView Absolutely love it

Leigh Vernon

Wont work anymore.... Doesnt work on s3 or tab2 but did in the past. Would be 5 star but now my child has gone feral. Thanks for that.

mahony fenn

No internet connection Keeps telling there is a problem with my internet connection and wont play. Disappointed.

Jacqui Walder

One extremely happy mum and child. App is perfect, we love it. Initially had trouble loading the videos but with a quick email to developers and a super fast response from them all was fixed. Simple thing with the time being incorrectly set on the tablet. So easy to fix. Thanks xx

Craig Coffey

Use to work fine but now wont load any shows even after a reinstall. You guys need to sort out development processes because you are making lots of little kids unhappy

Steve Austin

Easy to use and great features My 3 year old can easily use. Best feature is I can set a time limit and it will let the show fi ish if is close to the end.

nothinglike rottielove

Doesn't even play anything All i can do is open the app on my samsung tablet. Click on a program tells me to check internet connection!? I have nbn and theres nothing wrong with my internet!!!!

Nomiki Amorginou

Frustrating It was a great & helpful app until lately when my kids try to watch something it says check connection when My nbn is fine. Please fix.

Stacy Hollis

Crashes all the time. I have a Samsung t530 and this app is only ever used in kids mode, and it ALWAYS crashes in kids mode so I can never report it!

Jayden Harding

Needs to be fixed asap !!!!!! Will not play anything keeps sayimg problems with internet connection which is really annoying cause my 4yr old loves it

Cash Anarchy

Lock screen Great app to access abc but it needs a way to lock the screen and function keys. And then this app would be prefect. Maybe a dual key combination to unlock. Applies to iphones and ipads aswell.

Casey Thompson

Fantastic!! My 3 year old son loves this app we have it on 2 tablets plus my phone.

Pat Ronan

Used to work - doesn't work now Disappointed that this ap no longer works. Please fix it. Says check internet connection

Anthony Cole

WiFi only option The Netflix app has an option to allow it to not use carrier data but WiFi only. This would be a great option to have in this app too.

Lisa Ray

Does not PLAY on my android samsung galaxy tablet I can download fine, choose what i want but when i click on 'play' its unable to play it and says " check internet connection" internets all good, now my 2yr old is sad asking " why u not playing firesam sam"....u dissapointed me ABC!!!!!

Justin Page

Wont play Just says check internet connection but my internets fine wont play on samsung tab 2

Sarah Devine

Play app?? Love this app, but when is the ABC play app going to FINALLY be available for all android users, not just for iPad??

Davis Mul

Great app but please add lock screen Just an idea would it be possible to add a way to lock the touch screen so I'd young children are watching something they can't keep changing it? Even just a lock icon over the video that can be turned off and off

Anne Abou-mehrez

Bubs loves ABC, but.... My biggest problem with this app is that it has no lock function. Anyone with a baby/child knows they like to touch and grab your phone so its constantly stopping and starting play mode. It's definitely missing the lock function while playing video...

Mick Morgan

Doesn't play anymore This app used to work well but now for the last month all I get constantly is can't play check your Internet connection. This is the only app that is doing this.

Kate Watts

By far the best app on my phone My 12mo loves this app and so do I! It keeps me interested as well since there's so many episodes to choose from. This app has helped us get through the painful, cranky stage of teething. Definitely a life saver!! Thanks ABC ?

Janet Poczyhajlo

Playback issue Since update it wont work on the samsung tablet

Rhiannon Mecchi

Constant check internet connection Rubbish app. More ofte than not telling me to check internet connection and fails to play video. My tax dollars at work


My daughter tries to play her shows and they freeze exactly on 1:28 and the voices keep going but the picture freezes.....fix this bug!!!! ????

Jonathan Negus

Samsung galaxy tab problem Doesn't play any videos. Tells me to check internet connection.

Daphne Motley

Wont play Was working fine 10mins ago now it keeps telling me no internet yet i have internet working but the app tells me it keeps crashing... same crap happened with my iphone and now the samsung... fix it please properly...

Terri Druett

Love it until We keep receving the check your internet connection as well. Did anyone get this problem solved?

Becky Duggan

Amazing never seen anything like it keeps my daughter occupied ???????

Maryshane Leandado

Abc kids play app My girls liked it a lot!!

Said Balkhi

My two daugthers love this but as of late show keep getting reduced and some have completely disappeared

Mel Storton

Says no Internet connection now did work well but not now needs to be fixed asap

christianne hall

Daughter loves it My daughter loves this however I would be happier paying a monthly subscription to have a feature included such as to view offline... this eats my data quite substantially

Jason C

Playback error -fixed Unfortunately this didn't work on my Galaxy note pad with the latest software, running on wifi only, prompts you to check internet connection. I HAVE NOW Fixed the playback issue by syncing the time with the network, who would have thought it was a time related issue. Galaxy S6 mobile phone works fine. Just intermittent connection issues from time, time but a great app if the software could be more reliable.

St Sm

Great app but it all doesn't work My 2 year old loves the app but although my app is constantly updated, it still doesn't work properly. Some of the tv shows although they appear on the main screen, don't have episodes available? Eg charlie bear. But of course my 2 year doesn't know this when clicking it on the main screen. And its not updated with new shows on abc. Any chance this could be fixed? Apart from that i love having it there for my 2 year old to use on occasions.

Romeo Kilo

Desperately needs a screen lock function as well as the ability to remove or hide shows that i dont want my children to watch. I swear if am forced to watch that 30 second ad for 'Puggles' that my 15 month old is obsessed with one more god damn time im going to gouge my own eyes out with a spoon.

Natalia Castro

Cant play anything .... PLAY BACK ERROR??? Come on ABC IT guys, i hace twins and got them the same Samsung tablet... this silly app works well in one but not in the other? Which means the error is random and you guys wouldn't even have a clue on how to replicate it not to mention fixing it????? Otherwise you wouldn't have SO MANY CRITICS.. extremely disappointing. .. NOT GOOD ENOUGH ABC!!!

Rodney Laba

Lifesaving app for parents of young ones! Possibly my most used app at the moment! It would be 5 stars if chromecast was naively supported, and if the orientation of the device determined the menu and playback screen orientation - i.e. video playback is currently fixed in landscape mode, then the video finishes and returns to a portrait menu, which requires a phone flip to pick the next video. Also an autoplay next video option would be nice, for binge watching!

Adam F

Almost perfect Just needs landscape-rotatable main menu. Also fails to hide status bar after adjusting settings within videos. Otherwise super awesome (& lifesaving when away from iPad) thanks!

Jon Peachey

Its pretty good, easy to use, but there's no kids lock, so she presses the home button and it exits, or pauses the video. also does not work on the Samsung Kids tablet, (which is a galaxy tab 3), it should be on a tablet marketed for kids. other than that, this app does what it says on the can.

Nikki Marie

Great app Bub and i love this app but somehow needs a lock so that her little fingers dont keep closing the app and mucking everything up ? also never realized that it chews through ur data like crazy. I think there should be a botton to be able to save favorite shows ?

Rubbish, won't play on my smart TV. Says error with playback check internet connection. Have a strong signal, have uninstalled and re installed, still won't work.

Belinda Nelson

Doesn't work Keeps coming up every time to check internet connection. My 3 girls where excited to sit down and watch shows but couldn't coz every single video came up like that.


Good app, lacking basic features Needs a setting to work on wifi only, has no chromecast support, should be able to lock the app. Timer and show filter are great ideas though!

shen zhang

Will rate 5 if it support chromecast the abc iview support chromecast, it will be great if this kid iview support as well. Anyway this app share a lot of great cartoons which I cannot find on youtube due to the licence limitation.

cameron dalgleish

If you are having playback issues on a Samsung device; go to date and time settings and ensure they are correct. Sounds weird, but my time was out by 10 minutes and adjusting it to the correct time resolved this issue. The kids love me even more now that I have it working again!

Lachlan Botticchio

Use it with Samsung Kids Tablet and works great. Only issue is the video only works in Portait mode. Hopefully they fix this soon so my kids don't go cross eyed!

John Hancock

Single rotating 'seasons' of children's TV are a mixed blessing ... for a two year old. Favorites dropping out of cycle with no listed expiry dates for major series like Octonauts and Puffin Rock, no episode and season codes and no favouriting or sorting options make it a good and useful app, but far from a great one. No screen lock function and occasionally programs listed but with no episodes or episodes listed with no content other than a splash screen are other frustrations.

Karmin Piercy

great app would be better if there was anoption to lock the screen while viewing my kids like to point at things while watching and always hit the volume and power buttons which get out of the app.

Eddie Mayfield

Good app The quality and sound of the shows is perfect, streams quickly and lots of selections for the kids. I havnt had any problems with it

Mimi Ten

Great Entertainment Great distraction for the baby, though the shows are too short and no touch lock. Had to install a touch lock app which solved the problem.

Rinna Widjaja

Auto play and lock My dd loves Abc kids so much. But its better if i can make a fav list and auto play. And i also need lock feature to avoid my dd touch it. Thank you so much for the app..

Monica Mbuta

Pretty good Its good because every time my baby brother starts crying he stops when he starts watching like whaaaaaaat does songs and that app hipnotise people

Keiron Frazer

Great but offline option would be great Great app but would love if there was an offline function so my data didnt get chewed up on my phone.
