This app, at least for xbox is awful. We don't keep cable in the bedrooms for the purpose of not being in front of the TV forever but one thing I do like to do is sit with my son for a 20 minute episode an hour before bed. This app continually says "the app is having errors, please check back"....more often than not. The episodes are the same 6 on repeat. I don't see how it would be difficult for Nick to rotate the episodes once in a blue moon. There is only 1-2 shows that I find suitable for a 10 year old before bed that I can enjoy with seems like little effort goes into this app.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (10):

For fans of Nick, the iPad app is sure to please. There are lots of laughs and bits of interesting trivia that, along with the games and full episodes, will entertain for hours. For general browsing, the grid is pretty cool but borders on visual over-stimulation. Kids who have just a few favorite characters might prefer pulling the Nick switch and selecting just their favorites to make their grid more customized.

Shows with full episodes at the time of this review include Sam & Cat, Sanjay and Craig, See Dad Run, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Power Rangers Megaforce. Some of the shows contain violence and other iffy content for younger kids.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
