This is a very child friendly, creative and informative app. My daughter loves it. And customer service has been especially helpful. Thank you, Homer🤩

Lots of new amazing activities!!!! Homer is the Best!!!!! We already love the new Thanksgiving story game! I know my daughter will make up some super holiday tales using it!
Great app to improve reading 5/5
It is my daughter go-to app, she loves the stories and the songs and her reading skills keep improving. Thumbs up for Homer!
My son’s favorite!! 5/5
I recently downloaded homer and i can see how much my son loves it every time he opens up the app. Not only are the videos fun but then there’s some awesome lessons that really go in depth in teaching him to read and pronounce letters properly. I recommend it for any parent!
My 4 year old loves these stories! 5/5
And I love that he is engaged and learning, thanks Homer!!!
Wonderful app! 5/5
We love Homer! It is so great, fun, and educational. We also really like the personalized Pathways feature. It is a huge hit. Each update keeps getting better and better!
Great reading app! 5/5
My Daughter, 4, loves Homer! She has so much fun with each lesson
Love it! 5/5
Great learning tool for my three year old. I can't believe how much she is learning. What a thoughtful app that personalizes a wonderful experience that motivates her to keep going. She loves learning. We love Homer!
My daughter loves Homer! 5/5
My daughter can't get enough - she loves using "the pathway" and dressing up the wickles. The app does a great job of bing educational but still fun and engaging.
Not even worth a free trial 1/5
Takes forever to load and it was hard to understand and I have a masters in teaching...
It says iris free and has app purchases. However there is a monthly fee.
My kids love Homer! 5/5
I love this phonics program for all 3 of my children. They are ages 7,5, and 3 and there is something for each of them and they enjoy learning!
Love the pathways! 5/5
By Gina makes cake pops
We started Homer a few months ago and my son started learning his letters on his pathway. He absolutely loves Homer. There were some buggies but we reached out to their support team and their entire team was helpful in helping us troubleshoot. We're thrilled that they've fixed all the bugs that we saw in the latest version of the app!
So glad to be a grandma 5/5
This tool is a great supplement to school and is especially helpful as I watch the kids. It's something they actually want to do and I see them loving to read. The “Family” power word is our favorite—and we are loving the new Gratitude story. We have incorporated it into our nap time routine. We spend 15 min on Homer together, read two books, and then bed. Great variety of content for the grandkids-- even I learn something.
$79.99 without notice 1/5
I signed my granddaughter up for this as a trial / she did not show much interest at all so I tried to cancel - but instead of cancelling it enrolled her for a full year! No easy way to contact them - no phone numbers and I could not locate an email address. Very unhappy - next time I will look for instructions on how to cancel before signing up.
Really great app for kids 5/5
My daughter’s teacher recommended it, and I’m so glad. We do some lessons every night after dinner, and it’s a fun way to wind down, while still being educational. My daughter really loves recording herself read, and is so proud to show off her skills.
Terrific learning app! 5/5
By The Green Frog 50
The kids love the characters and I love the learning. I can really see a difference in their reading. Thank you Homer.
By Gavin’s Mom
Still worth the 7.95/month. Especially with the new pathways! My kids are loving them - and the learning value is obvious just from listening!
Amazing product to learn to learn and read 5/5
My kids love the product and I really love using the product with my kids. We can see the benefits from day 1. The pathway is a great thing that teaches and entertains. They love the recording of there voices and the personalization is amazing because it finds great things to keep my child’s attention to learning. They want to learn not watch pointless YouTube videos
Love the app but 4/5
By MFP rocks
We ran out of pathways and there won't be another available until November 22nd. Why so long? Any way to get it faster?
Signed up for the free trial for my daughters (5 & 2) and was excited to have something they could both use that was differentiated. My 5 yr old played for 10 minutes and was enjoying until the game on her pathway froze. We closed out and tried again and still nothing. She can’t go any further on her pathway now, so is bummed. Very disappointing.
How much does it cost after the free trial ?
The app is really easy to use. I like that there are different profiles for different kids. The painting game is really fun. So far it’s worth the subscription fee.
Too much going on 2/5
I have a masters degree and felt it was too difficult to use/too much going on, and gave up before even showing it to my 4 yr old. How is a kid supposed to use this independently if it’s not intuitive how to get started and there are too many choices?
Nephews Love It! 5/5
All my little nephews love this! Best is that they’re learning while having fun! Win win!
Happy Reading 5/5
The homer app keeps my sons attention while he learns. His favorite stories are the ones about contraptions. He also loves the puzzles and the stickers.
Started ok 1/5
Started ok. Constantly needed updates. Takes forever to recognize touch on iPad or iPhone. Took my kids both 2years apart to the same place to start. I don't think it was individualized at all. Gave them the same stories. Gave them the same activities. Not impressed.
They can’t get enough! 5/5
Brought Homer along to share with my friend’s little guy and, he was instantly hooked! For me, it was a fun way to bond with him. For him, it was all ‘learning through play.’
Great app 5/5
By Grandmom K
So many interesting topics. It has kept my granddaughter engaged , who usually gets bored fast. I have tried other learning apps and this one is by far the best one. The children are able to use this app with little assistance.
So far very unhappy 1/5
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! 5/5
I would definitely recommend this app! My daughter is highly engaged and learning a lot! It is an amazing resource. As a teacher, I find this app highly valuable!
Simply amazing 5/5
My son loves this game by far it's better than abc mouse way more educational I believe wish I knew about this app way earlier.
We had nothing but problems with this app on my sons iPad 1/5
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 5/5
The step-by-step learn to read program is really effective
Cancelled and still being charged 1/5
I cancelled this service months ago and am still being charged! Reached out to developer with no response. Subscription was removed through the my apple acct. BEWARE!!!
Very unhappy 1/5
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!
Thank you 5/5
By Alex Blix
We've been using this app with our 3 year old for a little over a month and I can see improvements already!
My daughter' sounding out words now 5/5
She's really into this app and gets excited about seeing the things she's interested in on her pathway.
Loving Homer! 5/5
We have been using Homer with my 5 year old for a while, and absolutely love the new update. With all the new stuff, my 2 year old is using Homer now also, or as he calls it “oma”! Can’t wait to see what else they have coming!
Wonderful, but new update is terrible 4/5
Since the new update, the app has been freezing and buttons to go to the next page are unresponsive. Please fix! I have an iPhone 6 with the newest iOS.
No not buy! 1/5
By Jess PA
This app does not work! I downloaded the app and was going to try the free trial and the app won't even load!! Waste of time
Amazing engagement 5/5
My kids (4 and 6) love this app. I use it as a reward. And I don't feel guilty about the time they spend because they really learn so much. The stories are beautiful, and I hear the kids singing the songs from the stories all the time.
story time and learning time! 5/5
This app is great for story time!
Awesome, fun reading app for kids! 5/5
My two boys, 3 & 5, love using Homer. They each get their own profile so they can go at their own pace. There’s a lot of stories, songs and games to help them practice letters and words!
Our favorite kids app 5/5
I have four girls 2, 4, 6, and 8 years old and this is the go to app in our house. We use it as a part of our homeschool curriculum. Our girls base their presentations on the information that they learn about animals and instruments and such. Homer has played a big part in getting them reading... I love to hear them singing folk songs that homer has taught them as they jump on the trampoline. I can't say enough. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
My son his homeschooled and we had trouble finding apps that would keep him entertained and learning at the same time, but this one is great! He loves it and I approve!
Literacy made fun 5/5
By Westin's mommy
My 3 boys (6,4,2) love this app! It really tackles literacy head on, but in a fun and exciting way.
Amazing app 5/5
This app tough my kids how to read and they r having fun reading!! So thank you for this app 😊
Waste of time 1/5
Nothing about this is free. It requires paying to do anything at all.
It seems good 4/5
It just won't load my daughter's "pathway". Not sure why.
