So I created a pathway, and then it says “Start free trial”.
I’m not gonna just start my free trial because I have to. You NEED to update this. 🙄

Homer is a great tool to get young kids excited about learning and bettering their reading score! Kids love the voice recording feature that helps them wit pronunciation and annunciation.
Great for kids with autism 5/5
My daughter is 6 years old and she loves repetition. She loves playing the different games and songs but isn’t too stuck on repeating one or two that she won’t explore and keep finding new things! Just wish it wasn’t as expensive.
Better than ABC mouse 5/5
My 2 yr old loves this app. She is liking this better than ABC mouse! She’s learning and constantly entertained. Thank you for an awesome app!
Just want my money back. 1/5
By Install right now!
The app was too easy for my child. We deleted the app and I was still charged $20 for a subscription renewal.
Love this app 5/5
I love this learn to read app. I use it with both of my little brothers. I love how it builds reading and spelling skills and how it is personalized for the kids, so it keeps their attention. I would recommend it to all the families who's kids are still learning to read.
#1 app!!! 5/5
By Theodor Kaljo
15 min a day doubles kids reading level!
Great app to teach your kid to learn 5/5
Homer really gets young kids engaged in something they actually learn from, compared to some ridiculous shooting games. They love using it and are learning so much while having fun. Recommend!
Super cool app! 5/5
By Liisi Jürgenson
My kids really love the app because it helps so much with reading. Helps them to get into a better level and ahead of others!
I really suggest the app, the price is also good. :)
Kids learning to read 5/5
this is awsome how kids enjoy learning through this app.
Amazing tool! 5/5
By bookgirl Kristi
Homer is a great app for parents to help their kids succeed in reading in an interactive way! It is fun for parents and kids!
They keep charging you 1/5
By alma 1205
Please make sure after you cancel your member ship that you call and make sure they actually cancel it other wise they will continue to charge you
Canceling subscription 1/5
I tried the 30 day trial subscription and I’ve been trying to cancel it for 4 months now. It’s not easy, I’ve emailed, and tried everything. Very disappointed in how hard it is remove my payments
GREAT App!! 5/5
By LynZ H
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!
Trying it out 5/5
I care for a 3 yr old lil darling. We’re trying this out, and so far she loves it.
Great app for stories and learning!! 5/5
By SWA Splawn
Homer is quite fun! I’m an intern with Southwestern who partners with Homer, I can now see why families and kids love using this!
App Complications 2/5
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.
By Cody the Bookman Hofer
Homer is an awesome way to get your little ones excited about reading! The slide and record feature is a huge favorite for all kids!
I would like to cancel my app
Super fun! 5/5
I wish this was around when I was a kid. Super cool app. 15 minutes a days actually doubles a child’s reading ability.
Nothing can compare 5/5
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 5/5
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! 5/5
My children have loved every minute of homer. They are way ahead of other kids their age and it is all because of this app
Very Frustrating! 1/5
By minecraft style man
Looks like it could be a great app.. only it won’t let me set up an account but is happy to take my money. The app just hangs and won’t start once I try to sign up for the trial. Worthless.
Homer is AMAZING! 5/5
Homer is so cool!! I love the pathways and all the characters! It's so fun to use and the drag and record are so useful!
Amazing system 5/5
By Chef Pauly P
The combination of fun yet educational games and activities make this a great learning tool for home educators and families alike!
Fit for any learner! 5/5
Not only have I been able to help multiple families get access to homer I have had the opportunity to use this app with my little cousins who LOVE it! The fact that they are able to record their voice and listen to it later (OR mom and dad later on) was a major game changer for them. They are both complex learners so since this app helps them learn to read by, speaking, visualizing, playing games, and repeating the words has been extremely helpful!
Amazing Product 5/5
By Trevor Nam
This product is totally awesome. Not only helps kids learn to read, but also read to learn! It’s super easy to use and very interactive!
Interactive colorful and fun 5/5
This app is amazing and helps kids learn to read and read to learn, its so dynamic with fun and interactive characters that keeps kids wanting to learn !!
The Best! 5/5
We love Homer so much in our house! It has helped my new reader to gain confidence and recognize more sight words. Best of all, we love the stories that go along with it! My kids all fight about who gets to use it first! They live learning with Homer!
Trying to love it 1/5
My 2.5 year old likes this better than abc mouse. But setting up the stupid pathway is constant. It has to be done over and over and no pathway is ever really set up. I have to skip it just so she can play games and read stories. She’s learning from it but the pathway popping up constantly is frustrating. Especially for an app I pay monthly for.
Not cool 1/5
Our family does not believe in evolution. However one of the homework books supports evolution. My four-year-old came up to me and said monkeys are mammals and we are mammals my books and we came from monkeys. So, I am canceling my subscription because I would like to do the influence and introducer of these topics.
Does not work 1/5
This app was great until it stopped working. My son was loving it and would often pick this over a regular game. Now we can’t use it or report the problem. If it gets fixed I’d love to change my review.
Very Unhappy 1/5
Very unhappy that after 10 months of inactivity homer started charging monthly without my consent. We never really used this app to begin with, and now I discovered 15 months later that I have been charged last 3 months for their services which I never used. Don’t sign up—-it’s a scam to to get your money!!!!
Don’t know if it’s any good or not. 2/5
By Magarooni o.o
I was charged but don’t remember setting up an account. Also I can’t even let my niece use the app to make it worth the 8 dollars because I don’t know the sign in information. I don’t blame the app it was probably my fault but in case it wasn’t be carful.
This is probably a decent educational app, but if you sign up and then try to cancel they continue to bill you forever! No way to stop it!
My Granddaughter is special needs,an Homer is helping her so much,she is 25 an for the first time on her own,wrote the alphabet.
Truly the Best 5/5
By Aryn Sanchez
I don’t usually take time to leave reviews, but this app needs one!
I am a Kindergarten teacher and a mother of a 3 year old. This is by far the best app around to help build early literacy skills. It has everything! Comprehension, vocabulary, phonemic awareness, phonics, sequencing, story telling, letter recognition, etc. Not only does it have everything, but it makes everything ENGAGING for children. This is my daughter’s favorite app. She does a little bit of her pathway every week, and she has learned so much in just the month that we have had it.
As a teacher, my recommendation is to train your children to use the pathway and not just choose random videos on the app. Although those are good, too, the pathway is where the learning takes place.
If there was a way to utilize this for all of my students within my classroom using a teacher account, I would love that!
My kids love it and their teachers are impressed! 5/5
The app really is pretty amazing. I have never seen a learning app engage my children so well and teach them things at the same time. I have already been taught some new thing from my kids that they learned on the homer app about animals and dinosaurs:)
Does not work on multiple devices 1/5
By Master tetris
Can’t get passed subscription questions
Looks like a great app but it says free. It shouldn’t say free and not be free. It should say trial. Disappointed
Building confidence with Homer! 5/5
My five year old is obsessed with this app. I love it because her letter recognition improved so quickly. She loves showing off to her friends and grandparents. The content is also really gorgeous, especially compared to other apps. It makes me think they care a lot about the product they are presenting. Overall very happy!
Homer Home School 5/5
My 2 granddaughters live with me, and also their parents. I live in a not so good area, so they are home schooled. They are ages 12 and 13. They had learned a lot, but none of the other schools really pushed reading very much. They were really behind on their reading level. Then I found Homer it has been an answer to prayer. The 12 year old read 4 books last night. Hip, Hip, hurray.
Both kids and mom been very happy with it until we cant launch the app anymore please solve this issue because we use it daily
This is not just a learn to read app... 5/5
I started using Homer for my 2 year old with a speech delay. The app is easy to use and he loves all the little games, stories, and songs. The subscription price is not too expensive and is worth it for all the fun and learning you get. I had an issue with not being able to get the app to work on a new device. Customer support responded to my email and had me up and running within the hour! If you haven’t tried this app yet, do it! It’s one of our favorites.
Love the app 4/5
My son been using this app for months. He’s not even 2! He recognizes the colors and letters. He even does most of the games on his own. Wish they could switch up the order on some of the games to make it a little more difficult. He seems to understand the pattern.
Not happy 1/5
Doesn’t move past the letter “a” says email isn’t configured to message you guys but it is
Charged for free trial 1/5
I just signed up for a free trial and was automatically charged for the app. I was supposed to have a month.
