  • GREAT App!!

    Homer is by far my favorite educational app for my son right now. He is just about 2 and he already knows all of his uppercase and lowercase letters, plus his colors and numbers 1-12. I started looking for some educational apps because I wasn't sure what to help him learn next and we have tried several different apps but most of them are not user friendly for such young children. Homer is great and my son has no problems navigating it on his own! He loves it and is so obsessed and begs me to "pway game" "Ohmer!" I would definately reccomend this for little learners! After using it for a little over a month he now knows most of the sounds the letters make!

  • App Complications

    The program itself is really good. My two year old son really liked it and I thought it would help him learn to speak, not just read. He played it daily, but as soon as the 30 day trial was up, the app stopped working completely. It has been two months and my account was charged the monthly fee for an app that does not even load and kicks him off. He got so upset, I had to remove the app from my device so he could not see it. I do not know how many others have had this problem, but the program itself is great...as long as the app continues working. It is worth it.
  • Amazing!!!

    There are so many learning to read and educational apps out there and some are really good at their job! Homer however is the best by far! Every kid gets a personalized pathway where they can follow all of their interests and move at their own pace. That way the kids don’t get bored or give up! The parents can even track what the kids are learning and they watch them go from learning to read is reading to Learn.
  • For everyone

    Love that it teaches kids not only how to read but teaches the older kids how to continue reading to learn more. It also records their voices so they can hear themselves pronouncing words and reading sentences. SO COOL. Love showing other families this resource.
  • Homer rocks!
