Reviews From google play store

since i have updated to kids home, i cannot download any of the app that original on it like my camera etc. i even try to update the software, but it says cannot connect to the server, please assist. Because my girl loves that app and I love how it keeps them safe on using the app.


I updated the app & now it's gone. no icon on my screen or in my apps. I can find it in the play store under my installed apps, but when I click to open it nothing happens. so, I guess it's a dead app now? edit: I tried swiping down, there is no kids home. I went to the link you provided. just brought me to Samsung's website. the only kids app I could see there was $60/year. no thanks, I will just uninstall the kids mode app. so disappointing.


best kids app ever! once they are in they can not get out and go into anything I don't want them to get into. it is brilliant, so easy to use, and I can't live without it


I just upgraded from the s5. We loved this app on the s5. My kids were obsessed with dressing up the alligator and I liked only having apps that I chose to be loaded. The new app is ok, but lacks many of the features we enjoyed for the s5. It is ok as a parental control app, but it just isn't as good for us as it was before.


I loved this app for my nephew who just turned 2 years old the music and coloring would entertain him when we needed him to sit still for a while. But now all of a sudden the app needed updated and now I no longer have the kids mode app it says I do but it's no where to be found and I have the Samsung s9 and had kids more up until I updated it on March 23, 2019. I do not like the new kids home that I have seen in other comments as my nephew liked the kids mode music and coloring.


I really dont like the fact that the app icon is gone and you have to access it from the top. I looked for this app for my kids for 2 days and found no information about the move. The placement is currently inconvenient for me and not as fun for them. I also dont like the fact that the lock has changed and I can't change it. It is also more inconvenient now to add apps. Not sure why all of this needed to change but I'm not a fan of this new layout at all. I hope something can be done about it.


I am very interested in this app but I am unsure how to get the contacts to load in. I have given the okay for it to have permissions for my contact list but it is not populated with people I can add to the OK list. I would much rather use this version for my son than one that has in app purchase options. Can you help me out? Thanks.


kids mode is good and my baby loves it but there is one issue everytime I exit the kids mode app the icon for kids mode stays at the top of my phone and causes it not to allow me to be able to click on anything not even to go back into kids mode. I have to restart my phone and thats a pain in the behind. please fix or update your app


The original app was the best!! I had to uninstall and reinstall then find the reviews to figure out how to open the new app. It is silly that you cannot use apps on your phone for this app unless they are Samsung kidapps. Also, my kids will never be able to easily find this app, with the original they would take my phone and get on kids mode themselves. Please bring back the original app!!!!!


it is a great app but now I can't used and not see it anywhere since I switched to the Samsung Galaxy note 9 we haven't been able to use it.


I just did the update and now Kids mide has gone. but when I go to google play or samsung app it only gives me the uninstall option. I have tried uninstalling it then installing it and same thing happens. I get asked to update it then it disappears again. I can't click on the later option because it takes me out of kids mode. please help. i have a samsung note 9


Will not open after last update. System is up to date. Shame my kids used to love this feature. Now they have Kids Home...which is almost the same except you have to manually reload all the apps and every time you open it you have to change your default app loader to it and when you close it you have to change back to Samsung's app loader..it was much more streamlined the old way.


this is a fantastic app. I can have different accounts for each munchkin. so each has different apps, times and access. example: my three year old has counting apps and PBS while my oldest has Netflix and can make and receive phone calls. but can only call those who I preselected.


Why is it that I had to update this app but when I did it no longer even lets me open it? The open button isnt even there! The app itself disapeared off my home page and now its not workable. I even tried deleting it and re downloading but same thing. I opened the app it said it needed updating eventhough i just downloaded it, so I did again and now its gone again...


I love Kids Mode, but this last update was not good. Forced to update with no instruction of how to get to Kids Mode after the update. Much prefer the old app on the regular screen. My kids knew exactly how to open it, now they can't find it. Please go back to the old format!


I used to LOVE this app but I got a new phone and no matter how many times I uninstall and reinstall, the icon does not appear on the top bar.


I was told the app needed to update and it supposedly did update but now I can not find the app anywhere. It says that it is downloaded but I can not open it. It's a shame because this is one of the few kids apps I liked and so did my kids. We have had it for years and now it isn't really there. I have a Samsung Galaxy 9 and it used to work fine until the update 2 days ago.


I am giving this 2 stars since the kids home update. my grands use this all the time they know the widget. Now there is no widget for them to access. Please make a widget. Also was very difficult to find after the update took me a day or so to find it. why is it only on the drop down screen?


Love this app except for one thing. Please make it possible to remove the "samsung apps for kids" app from the home screen. I get that you want to make more money, but every 5 seconds my kid is asking to download something new. A way to remove that and you get 5 stars!


love this app, but just did an update on my Samsung 9 and it is no longer available!! what happened? help! *update, I can now access kids home but it doesn't have the fun dinasour games that kids mode had. really miss it and was my primary reason for using it.


i installed the update and read (after frustration and confusion) on someone else's review that it was supposed to turn into kids home, but i can't even find that. i found something called kids home in the play store but the icon is totally different and it wants me to start set up all over again so I'm not even sure it's the right app. this update was very poorly managed. Edit: I've since found the icon but I'm still giving 4 stars because I'd prefer having an icon on the screen.


I love this app but it no longer works on my Samsung S9. 2 days ago it just disappeared from my homescreen. I can't find it in the Playstore anymore. I can find it by Google Search and says it's installed but it is not on my phone. Very disappointed. Please fix


I now realize the new kids mode app is the kids home, but I am not a fan of the fact that you cant change the passcode to get out of kids home... it is set as the same code to get into your phone. So if your kids knows your unlock passcode to get into your phone, they can also get out of the new kids home. Which is pointless to then have kids home!


won't let me use the app without updating it. As soon as I update it, the app disappears all together! I can't find it on my phone anywhere. Very frustrating as this was always my favorite kids app.


changed from app to a settings button in the quick panel. very frustrating. not a quick app to open anymore. when i want my child quickly distracted I wasn't too unlock my phone abs open the app, not drag the screen and find the app. removing update and starting as kids mode! kids home sucks!


This new update has really screwed up this app! It is not in my pull down menu or in my quick menu. It is gone! I am extremely frustrated right now. We use this app everyday. Fix it! or put the old app back! please!


l updated my kids mode app and now it's gone. It disappeared from my homescreen and when I look for it there is only a uninstall button. I would love to give more stars after this problem is fixed.


I loved the old kids mode. the new one is inconveniently located for a child to get to and dies not have as many fun games in it. I have not figured out how to get it to my home screen.


What happened to kids mode? My child wanted to play and it said the app needed to update. I updated and now I cannot find it on my phone. it is not available in either app store. My device still states the app is there, yet when I click on it, the app wants me to uninstall. Please bring the app back.


I have s9+ and this app no longer works. Sad to see it go. I downloaded that kids home app and it is horrible compared to this app. It's not even close to comparison with this app. What a shame my family loved this app. Does not give me an option to open it and can not find on my phone. Why is this so difficult now?


forced me to update or it wouldn't open and now it says its installed but the icon has disappeared from my phone and it won't allow me to open from the play store. have uninstalled and reinstalled several times and it won't work


HOW TO FIND NEW KIDS MODE... If you've updated to the new software on Android and the kids more with the crocs disappeared. If you scroll down from the top of your screen to where you see your bluetooth, airplane mode settings etc on the second page theres something call kids home. this is essentially the same app but its moved to there. i havent figure out how to create a shortcut but hopefully this helps people coz it took me hours and samsung cannot explain anything for love nor money!!


Loved this app, my son would open it himself to play "his games." Now it won't open without doing the update and when I do the update, it disappears and can't be opened. Disappointed.


Still great except for the shortcut is no longer available on the homescreen. Huge bummer if I'm busy and want to let my kid have my phone. Also as another review mentioned...the passcode out of Kids Home being the same as my phone passcode. What's the point?๐Ÿค”


Kids Mode worked great, until it tried to update then it uninstall. It is crazy! No problem with my 7S but got the new 9S and Kids Mode has been horrible.


Had an update on my phone and now the app has disappeared from my phone. My son LOVES this app as do I because it keeps him out of apps he doesn't need on. Now I don't have a kids app that works like this. Very very disappointing!


Found it on kids home. works ok kinda glitches a bit. My daughter is able to get out sometimes by clicking on any app in the kids home. I do have a password set too which she doesn't know.


My nephews loves this app, but after I updated it all it says is uninstall. I am very unhappy with this situation. I've been using kids mode since I bought my Samsung Galaxy S3 & I now have a Samsung Galaxy Note 9.


Same here. Updated and it wont show up on my phone or open. But I cannot keep my old KidsMode either because it requires me to update to this junk. NOT HAPPY!


after I figured out how to find it again its great. The version I had on my 8 seemed a little better, but soo glad to have it back!!


Its awesome...but for some reason now, when I download it, it says it needs to update so I do then it won't open.


Used to like this app. Now, my phone prompts me to download updates, and when I downloaded, the app isn't opening at all! HELP!


my little 2y old loves kids mode but since I have done the update on my Samsung s9 kids mode came up with an update and wouldn't open once updated and has disappeared from my phone. just comes up on my apps saying uninstall. I cannot open it


My daughter loves the app. Just a shame that I was asked to update it, when the update finished it disappeared off my phone but still coming up as installed.


it installed then wpuldbt let me open it I couldnt even find it in my library of APPs. was trying to download for my 2 yr old so he may be satisfied to play with my phone but never mind I'll go thru some other app. get this fixed and I may redownload


What happened to this app? it was fine the way it was and now I cant get into it. it was the best way to ensure my kids weren't able to do things on my phone without ending up somewhere I didn't want them. why was it changed?


I loved it. It worked great with my S8, now it won't even open on my S9.๐Ÿ˜ญ


I can't open Kids Mode with the new forced update. I don't like Kids Home. There are no fun alligator games for kids and they have a forced timer.


it is a great app until now I can't see it anywhere not even in search I had to go through Google to find it saying it's installed but can't find it to open it anywhere


annoying to use since adding to the button menu as hard to find and my kids asking where the crocodile has gone! the parental tools great but please bring back the actual app button! thank you!


used to work on my phone note 9 it was perfect for my son , all.of a sudden an update happened and now it no longer works! my son was devastated!


Updated it and the app for kids mode disappeared :/ tried looking for this kids home that everyone says it's switched to but nothing...it says I have kids home in my apps list but I can't find it anywhere on my phone to open it for my kids...


you tube kids is no longer working on the app, which was my main reason for keeping the android. hopefully u guys can fix soon. my kids are pretty bummed out about the change


used to work after last update it does not open and icon goes away.


My daughter exit this mode in 5 minutes ๐Ÿ˜•, she is 11 years old. She enter wrong password few times then is open Samsung account, she writes Samsung password and - no more Kids mode.


Ever since the recent update, I cannot access this app. Prior to the update I used this app almost non-stop for my children.


Finally figured out update. I use this app religiously. I've even upgraded my phone so I could keep the app, one time. I hope it never goes away


I have just done latest software update on my s9 and now can no longer use this app! why is this!!? I use this every day for my children! Plz sort this asap


not working after update!!! I even updated the kids mode still can't find it!! please help!!


I am no longer able to open on my S5. I still have it on my S9. I went into apps and it does not come up after searching for "kids mode". Is kids mode no longer compatible with the S5?


didn't have any problems until now, not allowing me to update.
