I am beyond frustrated with this tablet. I'm returning it and buying something else. Before buying, I did a lot of research because I knew I wanted a tablet that had a kids profile with access to YouTube Kids. I was aware that you can not download YouTube from the Appstore, but I learned how to download APK files to get the Playstore on the tablet so that you can download the YouTube kids app from the playstore. I was successful at doing that. But then only the parent profile had access to YouTube not the kids profile. So again, I went online and followed the steps to make sideloaded apps available on the kids profile. One of the steps was downloading the Amazon File Manager so you can copy and paste into the SD card. But for some reason the SD card isn't visible on the Amazon File Manager. I've been trying for 2 days to make YouTube kids available on the kids profile.
I am now giving up and returning the tablet. I think it is just dumb that Amazon came out with a product that restricts a google program. Google programs are everywhere and used by millions of people a day. Why make a product that limits access for so many people. Not allowing Google programs on your devices is a design flaw
