Teacher and Parent Approved 5/5
By Kim Giron
The quality and variety of content within this program is top notch. As a kindergarten teacher, this is exactly what I was looking for to use at home with my own child!
The best 5/5
We’ve tried the others and this one is the best! We love how everything is fun and educational. And no busy virtual pets and silly stuff to distract.
Very buggy app 1/5
On multiple occasions, iPhones and iPads I have downloaded this app for my toddler while finding that we get through the whole sign up process for it to freeze at the “get started” button. Beware of the 7.99 subscription after the free trail. I would not mind paying that if the app ever worked.
Not working on phone 1/5
By Jordan 530
I was really excited to use this app, but it doesn’t seem to work correctly on my phone. I can’t use a landscape view to access all the choices being discussed on the beginning lesson.
Downloader beware 1/5
Don’t preview this app. I downloaded it quickly with several other reading apps for my daughter. I glanced through, decided against it and deleted it within a couple of days. Little did I know that I was not subscribed and deleting the app that my daughter never used would cost me $7.99 a month. Add to that the several pages and difficult process of following the links to cancel and I am fuming.
Life Saver! 5/5
My daughter had a stroke at birth and it affects her speech and language. She’s been in speech therapy for almost a year now. She’s two. I got this app, and more of the Homer apps, 2 days ago and she can already recognize colors and letter and is even starting to say them!! She begs to play the game. She will even bring me my iPad, tug on my shirt, and bring me to her big pink chair. I can’t thank the creators enough!! This app truly saved us! It’s been such an asset with her condition and she’s already doing so much! I’ve never had a app make me cry.... Thank you!
Very engaging 1/5
This is very engaging. But it keeps crashing!! It’s really annoying my daughter is getting into her lesson and the app kicks her out. I have it on a android and iPhone and it’s the same problem. Please fix the constant crashing. Especially when I’m paying for it.
Did not learn anything 1/5
By xoxlhxychlch xglxlgxlggxogxgot
My son is 5 yrs old and he said it was boring and he did not learn anything
Not free 1/5
By Princess bx
Not free. Though it says “get”
The app is ok 4/5
I’m a lab elementary teacher and I was looking for some apps that would help get my own children off on the right foot for reading! They did enjoy the app, however my daughter became bored quickly with the sight words part of the game. They enjoyed the different songs, books, etc., however they have to download all of them. This obviously became a problem with each item. They also claim to be able to track your child’s progress. This isn’t accurate. You can see what your child sees in the app. No progress, no data, etc. I emailed to company a while back about this and didn’t receive a response. My kids enjoyed it, however didn’t learn very much. Looking for a new app...
You have to put a credit card in just to get a trial of it. I’ve been falsely charged so many times, I just delete the app right away if the first thing they’re interested in is my credit card. Garbage app
Rip Off Artists 1/5
I was promised a free trial and decided not to purchase a subscription. I cancelled before the free trial was over but it automatically charged me for the next month and I couldn’t get it refunded. What a con. Never believe free trials. I learned my lesson and it wasn’t how to read.
My sons iPad was super glitchy with this app and then I downloaded it on my iPhone X and it is not displaying properly. I wanted to be able to use this app at home and on the go for learning but it’s just leaving me frustrated. Not only that but every single time we reopen the app it asks us to back sign back in. My kid is not going to be able to do that on his own each time he wants to use it. Of course I can do it for him but I wanted this to be an app he would want to play on his own. When the app wasn’t glitching he was enjoying it.
My child is actually learning 5/5
Homer is a program I stumbled upon and am glad I did. My son is in speech and needed something that focused on the letters and their sounds. Homer does that and is systematic about it. I love seeing him grow!
Force closes 1/5
Does not work anymore and I pay monthly now I can’t unsubscribe please fix or help
Won't load again 1/5
Please help. I would like to cancel before free trial is up because app won't load and unable to use. Thank you
The app it’s self is great! I think it’s engaging and fun and really is a great tool to help my daughter read. But this app never works!! I’m paying for it and it doesn’t work. I’m upset that I barley even used it last month. I even deleted it and reinstalled it. It’s a gamble if it works.
LOVE THIS!!! 5/5
By Boy Moms Rock
My daughter loves this app!! Tech support helped us with the crashing problem! Super fast responses!!! Thanks!!!!
Force closes 3/5
By Shammy Jay Hawbbzziiee
Was an amazing app until the update, which made the app force close every time you try to open it now. Literally the stars are for how
Good the app was before the update.
I had no idea my son was this close to reading! 5/5
My kid is only 3.5 and we read to him every night but I never really pushed him to sound things out or write on his own. Then he started playing around on this app and he’s SO INTO IT! He is really starting to recognize “sight words” and tries spelling and sounding out words in our nighttime stories. The letters he’s tracing on the screen look awesome. The breaks he gets to draw and play along his “pathway” give him the break that keeps us BOTH more comfortable with this early learning. He’s having fun and I can see progress, this is screen time I honestly don’t feel any mom guilt about.
Unauthorized withdrawals 1/5
I just downloaded the app and it automatically withdrew money$8.65 from my accounts by just finger print WHY? If first months is free however I just uninstall the app so can I get my refund???there are lots of apps for free I don’t want to pay for something I haven’t even try
Paid and no access 1/5
3 emails and zero response. Paid membership with no access. Should have known better with an email sent while in ‘free’ 30 days inaccessible content. FAIL
Update: response here from them is purely PC. Never once reached out to my 3 emails DO NOT BUY COMPLETE RIPOFF
Awesome educational app for 2-7 year olds 5/5
My 5 year old loves this app! I’ve been pleasantly surprised to see him choose and request Homer over non educational games! I highly recommend this app it’s totally worth every cent!
Great App 4/5
I have had a great experience with the app. However, when it came time to not renew membership or just not pay the following month I can’t seem to get my account deactivated. So if I could get some insight on how to deactivate the account it would be appreciated.
Not good experience 1/5
My kid used on iPad, but one day it’s stuck. No matter what I did:reset, upgrade the iOS or the app, it’s just stuck on iPad. It’s stuck about 2 months, and today I remembered, so finally unsubscribed it.
The app says there’s a free trial. It then allows you to set up a profile for your kid, then once everything is ready the app asks for your payment details to continue.
A free trial means you shouldn’t request payment detail. Also, if you are going to do so, payment details should be requested up front so you don’t waste people’s time.
5 year old loves it! 4/5
Such a fun resource for my 5 year old. He really enjoys playing/learning.
Won’t work 1/5
I wish I could give this app a try. It doesn’t move from the “starting free month” loading page. It’s just loads forever with out doing anything else. I’ve tried removing the app and downloading several times but it does the same thing.
Not adaptive to the child 3/5
I gave it a 3 because my pre-k/K child does enjoy the app; however, it can and should be better.
For example, he initially selected the incorrect answer on every try of an exercise and it still allowed him to go on to the next exercise.
1. There should be a minimum number (3 or 4) of consecutive correct answers before they are able to move on to the next exercise. This will ensure the child has at least some grasp of the concept.
2. Since the exercise is focusing on a particular letter, make everything in that exercise about that specific letter, including the drawing and create-your-own story portion.
Great for ages 2-9 5/5
Really helps reading development for kids 2-9
Doesn’t work 2/5
App stopped working
So my child likes it, I think more than ABC mouse. But thought I read that it didn’t need to have WiFi, but it’s looking as if it does. Why do games don’t have to have WiFi and something good for a child does? Sad about that any way overall it a very good tool. Maybe I’m of the few that don’t have internet 🤷🏽♀️ in time. Thank you
But thought I read that it could have been on a review don’t remember.
Not loading 1/5
Paid for the app and after a few days it won’t load. I’ve tried deleting it and redownloading it but it still has the loading circle and nothing happens. What’s up with that?
The app keeps freezing 3/5
We have had multiple issues with this app freezing or just turning itself off. No internet issues, just the app which is very frustrating for my 2.5 and 4.5 yr olds. It also appears that you have updated the apple app but not the android version. We have both. We will not continue our subscription if the app is not consistent and keeps closing and freezing - not a good way for kids to learn
Good app so far 5/5
I just downloaded but my daughter likes this app so far . But I was trying to figure out if there is a way that I can check her process on my login . And most of the time when she’s on it I will be at work and she will be at camp since school is almost over.
Successfully achieving a passion 5/5
By Mama HD
My four-year-old has cousins and friends who love to read, so he asked if he too could learn. I sought after this app in hopes of continuing his passion for reading and the skills required to read. As a four-year-old, he's learning at his own pace and making progress each day we use the app. We celebrated the little successes daily until he reaches his goal of reading.
By Jake 500
He loves it
Stopped working back in April 2/5
When the software worked, I did like it. However, it stopped working (cannot access My Path) in April and after contacting the customer support multiple times (including sending a video of the problem), it is still not resolved. I tried reinstalling the app many times, tried iPhone, IPad, resetting both devices and still have the same problem. The support told me that they can reproduce the problem but unable to solve it. Anyway, I think this is not acceptable for an app that requires monthly subscription fee. I will give it one more week and if the issue is still not resolved, I will be removing the app.
Can not delete this app!! 1/5
I downloaded for free trial to try, didn’t like it and tried to delete. I can not get it off my phone and have been charged TWICE now!! Ive emailed and tried contacting in multiple ways, no one has responded to me and been over a month! DO NOT DOWNLOAD UNLESS YOU'RE READY TO BE CHARGED! I’m still hoping someone contacts me to get a refund, two now! And I hope someone tells me how to get this app away from me, off my cloud and stop charging me please!
Won’t load since update 3/5
My daughter has been using this app for years to help with reading as a homeschooler. But since the most recent update this week, the app refuses to load at all. We just get an endless loading screen. We ha e tried on mobile data and on WiFi. So our net source is NOT the problem. It’s the app itself since the update. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED IMMEDIATELY. We are using an iPhone SE so the phone isn’t the issue either as the app is fully compatible with this phone model.
It was terrible It 5/5
It did not make sense and I saw aloughtnof glitches
4year old 5/5
My 4 yr old enjoys this app. We have been using it for a month now and haven’t had any problems with the programs. I like that he is read to. He enjoys the app.
Homeschool Coach 5/5
I use the Homer App for my students and they love it.
Make for all ages please 1/5
Make for all ages 30 year old still lean how read love the app let use it because of my age why 1 Star review
Although I am not sure why it says ages 4 plus , my son is 2 1/2 and loves Homer. He is an extremely intelligent little guy , so I often find it hard to challenge him . He is constantly asking to “ play with Homer “ , and is being challenged with letters , numbers , shapes , and a constant variety so he doesn’t get bored. Worth the $7.99 so far !!
Too sloooow loooaaadiiiing 1/5
I don’t know if the paid app is fast in loading but the trial version can make u give up using this app. Very slow to not loading at all. I dont know if they designed it that way to make you buy the app but it effects the opposite way. Find another as am I.
Always freezing 2/5
My daughter want to play Homer taps the app chooses her profile then the game decides to freeze. Can not choose anything and the music just plays while she starts to fiercely tap everything to see if anything works. Still nothing so I end turning if off. Don’t think it’s worth the money if you can’t play and learn.
This App didnt work for me 1/5
I downloaded it and set it up for my kid and it didnt work.. so i cancelled subscription, i have just been charged 8$ for this month, please refund and tell me what step i missed to cancel subscription?
