I already have folders for kid specific content (TV & movies) on the home screen.
I suppose my point is that whilst I understand that the prior search service showed ALL content and allowed you to navigate to the information screen of that content, it did not let you play it if it fell under a PIN protected folder unless you entered the PIN.
Now, you can’t even get into the search function without a PIN. This would be considered a poor user experience.
I’m OK with having to use a PIN code to enter the Settings menu, and also anytime I want to edit metadata, but Search should be available to all users.
Could I ask you to consider the different use cases that many different types of users may have when you look at this next? I understand it is difficult to build a solution that meets the needs of the many, but hampering a basic function like search due to having some parental controls in place is a bridge too far for me …
Thanks for your understanding. Love your product. Keep up the great work.
