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!!!
The best! 5/5
By Besting own
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 5/5
The homer app keeps my sons attention while teaching him to read.
We love Homer! It is so great, fun, and educational. We also really like the new personalized Pathways feature. It is a huge hit. Each update keeps getting better and better!
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.
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. 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
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.
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.
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.
Better than ever! 5/5
I always get a bit nervous when apps make updates, but this is the best version of Homer yet! My kids love that they each helped create their own learning path, and have been bragging about "whose is cooler".
Lovely app, fun and entertaining but also very educational. My kid was reading a story to me the other night and it helped him along when he had trouble. The stories they add every weekend ar excellent!
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. We love Homer!
Nice app! 5/5
By Robert Underduck Terwilliger
As soon as my 4 year old started telling me about Monticello, I immediately signed up for a one year subscription.
This is a very child friendly, creative and informative app. My daughter loves it. And customer service has been especially helpful.
Thanks so much!
I'm subscribed but it's it's still locking up 3/5
I click subscribe then it says I'm good to go - she tries to go the the next activity and the subscription boxes come back up. It shows I am subscribed in my apple backend.
It's free to have the app on your device 2/5
Past that you can't do much without giving them your credit card and to only get a free month after that. At least have a minor free version without needing to sign up or without needing to provide a credit card
No way to retrieve password and turn off payments! 3/5
I would like to turn off payment but don't have my password and there is no way to retrieve it. Please help.
Not free to use 1/5
You can download the app for free, can't use without monthly subscription.
Love it 5/5
My two-year-old and my six-year-old showed no interest in ABC mouse so I searched for a new app and my kids love it! I love how my kids can record them selfs reading a book and I can hear it right after. My 6yr old gets really excited and the best part is there reward which is pickles for there Weikel . Great app, there technics are flawless. And my son's speech is improving dramatically 😍❤️ thank you!
Very buggy 2/5
By von Lopez
The app has potential, but it is extremely buggy. I walked through it with my 2 1/2 yr old and found multiple spots that wouldn't work. It kept asking for microphone and camera access, but when I went into Settings - Privacy - Microphone, the app wasn't even in the list. There were also times when neither the check mark nor the trash can icons worked, and I had to restart the app entirely. Very disappointed. Canceled the trial.
Love Love Love 5/5
By Dream Reader Kids
This app is awesome! It has so many different options to choose from. My 4 year is going to be obsessed.
Best app ever! 5/5
Have used this app with my 3 yr old and he just loves it. It's so much fun that he doesn't realize he's learning to read. The makers really did an amazing job with this app. Is there one for math in the works thought?
Fun and effective program 5/5
My three and half year old wants to learn to read like her older sister and was asking for a school to learn. Homer has been wonderful for her. She is absorbing letter and phonics. She asks to do it almost everyday.
Even thought her almost 7 year old sister can read well we needed to add her to the app too. She loves the stores and is learning so much from the history/ natural science section!
App not working for me. Please help! 2/5
I am soooo excited for my 2 year old to start using this app. I've signed up and creating a profile. However, once I open the app, go to any area and click on icons to download, I start having a hard time. The icons download, but when I click on the to open, i get a white screen with the next and back arrows and nothing plays. Please assist me with this bug so that my little one can begin using it and I can give a proper review. Thanks,
Awesome app!! 5/5
I would recommend this app to anyone with a beginner reader. My 4 year is reading thanks to this app.
No problems so far. 4/5
Bright tunes. Colorful. Still testing it out. Nice graphics quality. Variety of activities. Reads story's aloud with highlights on word being spoken.
Stuck on membership screen 1/5
Just as other reviewer's have said. Forces you to create an account and left stuck on the screen with no way to move forward.
Not worth your time 1/5
The app took hours to download. Then they ask for a credit card. It came up under free. But it's only free for a month with a card up front. Total waste of my time!
Fabulous App!!! 5/5
My girls are 7 & 8 years old and have been using this app for about 6 months now. They love it!! It has encouraged them to read and tested them on their comprehension all while making it fun for them to earn more wickles for their entertainment. The few times we have had any issues with the app the customer service department has been extremely helpful and quick to solve the issues. I highly recommend this app to parents for their children and to teachers for their students. I look forward to seeing any future updates so my kids can continue to grow with this app!!
Son loves it! 5/5
My six-year-old absolutely adores this app. Great review and some teaching happening. Thanks!
Asks for payment 1/5
Makes you sign up before using then tells you to put in payment info. No thanks.
