Top Pcmac Reviews

  • Don’t expose your children to this!

    By RLW1010 (Pcmac user)

    This is hands down the worst app ever for children/ toddlers. There is NO WAY that this app is monitored at all, like it claims to be when you setup a profile. There are so many examples I can personally give. A 20th Century Fox theme song that CLEARLY depicts a swastica. Then there is the video where Spider-Man shoots I believe Deadpool with what looks like a very real pistol (Glock 19 to be exact). Or, the finger family video where all of the I believe Spider-Man characters (again) are lined up, and are shooting each other in the head blood, death whole 9. And then you have channels like “Candyland”. A (what sounds to be an adult male) displaying gross amounts of candy on a table then exclaiming “So yummy in my tummy”. This is gross to me on so many levels. Then you have the subliminal messages in these kids videos, if you use the bar and scroll through some of the videos, you will catch an extremely brief image of something extremely creepy/ inappropriate. I do monitor what my children watch but it seems like after a week or so or after the app/device update all of the blocked videos magically appear. I uninstalled this app, it is toxic for children, I strongly suggest everyone steer clear. I have contacted you tube kids upward of 20 times but to no avail. Will be taking further action if something doesn’t change (for the poor kid who is being brainwashed).
  • Good, But Needs Better Monitoring

    By B-House (Pcmac user)

    On the outside, the seems like a fine app for the preschooler/elementary crowd. And most of the time, it is. There are many educational and do-it-yourself videos that children can access. My younger brother lives watching his “Up on the Housetop” (a Christmas song) video. However, also at children’s fingertips are a few less age-appropriate videos. These might satisfy the teenager or tween of protective parents, but they aren’t the best for the target age. Specifically, I recently found a clip of the “Bustopher Jones” scene from the musical Cats (you know, the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical that stars people in tight costumes slinking around the stage pretending to be cats). Okay for the (jr) high school crowd, but not quite what most parents want their five-year-olds to watch. Parents: you might want to preview videos you think your children would view. Developers: please try to monitor this better! I’m not saying to study every video that comes in, just the ones that look a little off-key. Thanks!
  • Quite A Few Mistakes

    By DragonWingofFire (Pcmac user)

    I like this app but there are some mistakes that need to be fixed. For example, there are videos in this app that have curse words in them, like the Gossip Girl music video. Another mistake is the Try Again button for the No Connection thing.........IS FAKE! I tried so many times but nothing happened. Speaking of No Connection, this app is so bad at connecting to the internet. Some of the videos in this app teach kids things that they shouldn’t know at all! One more thing, the YTkids app is really bad at searching for channels. Thank you for noticing these issues. This review is from a 10 year old so if this stuff is normal, oh well! 😉 P.S. I Read some reviews and noticed that hackers have been messing around with the app and GES (my school) has been effected by the rude and inappropriate vids. Channels I recommend are: DanTDM, LDShadowlady, It’s Jojo Siwa, stacyplays, Every Education Channel but The Things, Little Kelly, Littl Carly, etc.
  • Don’t recommend this app

    By mandis89 (Pcmac user)

    For one we downloaded this app because it’s titled you tube kids and well the content here should be suitable for children. With that being said my kid is 4 yrs old now and if you don’t have kids of yourself you wouldn’t understand that kids learn and do a lot of what these “child safe cartoons” show like burning each other with fire launchers, cutting each other several devious actions that my kid talks and repeats. For example my boy says if he doesn’t like something he is gonna hit it and burn it and I started looking at some cartoons that he was viewing blocked the content and well there is more like it. Which is hard to know what some cartoons consist of unless you see it all but i guess long story short my kid picked up on tantrums and things of that sort that some cartoons would do. I just think it’s not all kid friendly I wouldn’t recommend this app if you’re intention is to download it and forget it in the sense that you are gonna trust the content on here and let your child browse through some content you might not approve of.
