Most apps she likes for a few days & is back to something else.. she has chosen this over her favorite "YouTube" kids! That speaks volumes! I think the interaction is a huge part.” -Ashley G. Mom of a 4 year-old “My daughter uses Homer every single day! Her teachers tell me she is reading way above grade level and I know it’s because of Homer.” - Kelly S., Mom of a Kindergarten student "In just six weeks, with no intervention from teachers, students who used HOMER for 15 minutes per day improved the key skills most highly correlated with future reading success. That’s a big deal.” - Dr. Susan B. Neuman, Former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education, Professor of Early Childhood & Literacy Education, NYU quoted in USA Today. We love hearing from our users!

  • So far very unhappy

    This seems like a nice idea but it moves so slow thru different steps. My 5 year old wants to advance faster. PLUS - it is so buggy. You go to run the next module along the pathway and nothing happens. I need to check my Apple billing. I hope it hasn’t billed it. I was planning on the trial period to see if I like it for daughter. So far, it’s a crummy experience.
  • So Engaging!

    In the beginning it was great and my son loved it. This app would constantly need to be updated it would not work and when I contacted customer support all they would say was that I needed to reset my device. Why would I need to reset my device constantly in order for their app to work. I think they need some updates. Also when I signed up for a trial it automatically charged me the full price for the app and I did not give me a trial. It would also lose all of my sons saved progress and data and he would have to restart from the beginning. It was frustrating for a six-year-old because it wouldn't save his progress and that's ridiculous.
  • Fun and educational

    Homer is the best! My daughter is so engaged and she learns so much. She goes to all parts of the app, but she is really enjoying pathways. She loves moving from one section to the next. And I love hearing her call out, "I did another one, Mom!" This is screen time that makes us BOTH feel good!
  • Happy Reading

    I signed up for this for my son, was not only billed $99 for the year, but was also billed 7.99 per month for this subscription. I tried to contact customer service for a refund, but found they basically don’t have customer service. Highly disappointed in this and would never recommend this to anyone. Especially since my son lost interest after about a month. DO NOT USE THIS APP!
