Too often it doesn’t load 1/5
By papa vat
iPhone 7, 35gb free, 45Mbps network connection. Fully paid subscription.
It just won’t load consistently. While it’s frustrating for me, you can imagine how sad my 3 yr old daughter is when I tell her, yes honey you can play a game ... and then It doesn’t load.
Will not load 1/5
This app never loads on my child’s iPad, can’t even start my free trial
At first seemed like a great app but my daughter got tired of waiting for it to load stuff. I was curious what was going on so I turned it on myself first time it took over 5 minutes to even get one of the games to play then the rest of the times I tried the app wouldn’t even open. I have no problems with any other apps not working so my only conclusion is the app has some problems. The bad part is I paid for the monthly program which it’s been like two months now we haven’t even been able to use it. I have to figure out how to do that sadly!
Decent graphics and games to engage my little one.
App crashing all the time 1/5
I used to love it but these days my kid can't use it.
Crashes 100% of the time 1/5
By Thumper Bunny
App refuses to work on my iPhone SE, 6S, or X. It won’t even load on my 6S or SE. it loads on the X but crashes immediately.
The App loads and crashes on my iPad 4 and iPad Air 2.
I have tried to get it to run on all my iOS devices with no success. So frustrating. Apple will not refund me. Developer admitted to the bug.
Waisted $20. :(
Started this as a trial period, downloaded the app and have not been able to use it! The app opens to the “Homer Reading” page and says “loading” but it doesn’t!!! just says that it’s downloading!!! Tried on both my iPad and phone with the same results!!! Hopefully my son will get to use this before the trial period is up...
Would be great if it worked 1/5
Seems like a great idea, but too often the app won’t start. When it does finally start there are multiple parts that crash it. I’d be a happy subscriber if it simply worked consistently
Stop asking people to contact you. Hire a QA person to find these issues. All the reviews from the past couple weeks are about the same problems.
App keeps closing when we tap to continue the child’s journey and the app just closes. I have restarted the iPad uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Fix and I will give a better review
I paid the subscription for 3 months and I can’t open the app I call customer service still holding on the line
Issues with the app 1/5
By Sarah Rey
I’ve paid for this for sometime, but it never goes anywhere past the loading screen. I just have forgotten to cancel the membership, jokes on me. 🤦🏾♀️
Scam app 1/5
By cammy d maddy
This app stopped working the second week. He hasn’t been able to do anything on it. I’m not happy either.
NOT FREE 1/5
I don’t like it because it’s not FREE!
Great learning tool 4/5
My kids really enjoy using this app and after the first week I can already see how well they are progressing in identifying letters and numbers. However, I am the only person with an apple phone in my house and it’s shared between my three kids. I am hoping with time this app can be compatible kids tablets like leap pads to free my phone . Thank you for the great kids learning app.
Review update: Great App! 5/5
After a frustrating start to setting up the account, the app is actually the best child learning app we’ve used so far. Lots of great content . My 4yo loves listening to the songs (and so do I). The learning path is fun and engaging. So far it’s worth the subscription.
Won’t Open 2/5
It was cool after I downloaded the app but now when we try opening it, it won’t open. It loads and then returns to the home page.
This app does not keep track between devices. If my child uses it on one device, and then logs in from another device, they have to start from where they left off which could be many many levels behind. This frustrates an already struggling child. I want to motivate my child, not frustrate them. Furthermore, this app rarely loads the first time. I’ve never reset a device so many times and more often than not, it doesn’t load at all. This app has many many any glitches and was probably released before it should have been.
App stopped working 2/5
When the app worked I liked it for my kid, but the app stopped working so what good is it to pay for a subscription you can't use?
App keeps crashing. 1/5
My 2 year old loves it, but we can’t launch the next step in her pathway without it crashing.
CANCEL MEMBERSHIP PLEASE 1/5
I am very upset with this app/ program.

Purchased the trial. It keeps crashing.
Love it but... 3/5
We love the actual program it’s great unfortunately my son always wants to play it but if either a never loads or b loads and we click on our pathway and it turns off. So annoying and frustrating!!!! I tried turning on and off my phone I also tried deleting app and redken loading. I have the newest iPhone and I also tried it on iPad to no help.
By Samitha loves her hubby
My son is learning and enjoys this app. I was surprised at first how interested and focused my son displayed using this app - he is two years old. I recommend this app.
Best App Ever 5/5
My child, Venus, has been using this app daily for the past two months and I can't get her away from it. Makes my job as a mom much easier.
LOVE homer! 5/5
My daughter is 5 years old and has been learning so much. She was having a few issues reading in kindergarten when one of the other parents recommended Homer. I could see improvement in her reading almost immediately but after a few months the improvement was dramatic. her confidence really increased and she began to read stories on her own.
Loved until it started crashing 2/5
App closes itself and is unable to open
I can’t get it to work and it already started charging me 1/5
Don’t know how to cancel
App keeps closing 2/5
I really liked this app until my child gets to a specific point in her pathway & now i go to click on it and it shuts the entire app down. Please help
Good For younger kids 3/5
We originally got the app for our 2nd Grad daughter who is very behind in reading. I’ve changed her settings multiple times and she still thinks it is too easy on the pathways, but she enjoys the library.
Our 5 year old is a bit more challenged by it, but the app seems to keep losing his place and making him start over, which is frustrating for both of us.
Great game but quits unexpectedly 3/5
By lives with her mom
My daughter doesn’t say a lot of words yet but has surprised me by how much she knows when I watch her use this app. She will be going to speech therapy to help with her development, but I have really enjoyed this app that gives her the right questions for her age and abilities that she can actually answer. I think it makes her feel good about herself being able to answer questions frustration free! BUT since the new update the game crashes! She is now stuck on her pathway and cannot go any further. You can’t skip over any games on the pathway so we are just stuck.
This game is worth 5 stars but with the disappointing crashing I can’t give it more than 3. It really is a great app. I hope this issue gets fixed.
Keeps quitting 1/5
I have used the app for a day. It quits mid path and won't work on my new or old apple devices. Very frustrating. My child loved the games, but it's really buggy.
Great for grandkids 4/5
By TAG tchr
I tend my granddaughter, age 4, two days a week. She loves the Homer app! I created a pathway for her, and she is making good progress! She will enter kindergarten next fall as the youngest in her class (August birthday), and one of the most advanced. I am a retired reading specialist, and I like the sequence of skills taught, the variety of activities, and the opportunities to record. It is engaging and good practice. Homer is well worth the price for preschoolers and beginning readers!
Great app but keeps crashing 1/5
My 3yr old loves this app but she can’t get any further in the app because it crashes every time she tries to open the H letter in her pathway and for some reason you have to complete that before she can move on. Very frustrating
I wish it worked 1/5
I can tell it would help my 7yo with her delayed reading but it just hangs or crashes all the time. I’ve created more space on the iPad but it still is too slow in loading and it loses her attention.
It worked in the beginning and I could see the potential. I really wished it worked. After 3 months of trying, I give up. So disappointed.
APP WONT LOAD 1/5
After getting my payment info for a “free” trial the app will not open again. It just stays on the first screen saying loading. I’ll be deleting it and I would like to cancel the subscription, along with the $3 hold on my card😒😒.
Continues to not load 1/5
Still every time we click on an assignment the app shuts down. All began after the last update. Have still not heard back from the company after emailing them. This is terrible considering you pay a monthly fee for this app. If not fixed soon will be demanding our money back
Super glitchy 2/5
I really love the content in this app but that doesn't matter if my son can't play it. It freezes and gets stuck in loops. The mouths never match the audio. I feel disappointed because this app was expensive and my son can't use it.
My 5 year old and 7 year old like it. They don’t get bored of it as easily as they do with other apps. The reason I gave a 2 star is because my daughter was doing her pathways and when she clicked on her next assignment it closed the app. We restarted the app several times but it keeps just closing out. Really disappointed in it. So is my daughter.
Hi, Please let me know, How to get refund and unsubscribe?
Best app for kids 5/5
My nephew absolutely loves this app. The UA is super friendly and it is very easy to use the app. I highly recommend it for young children. They will learn while enjoying the games.
By farfar Arild
Perfect for my grandkids. Keeps them busy when I have my coffee. The kids love it. They’re totally into it. They also learn!
App crashes 3/5
This app keeps crashing is anyone else having this issue. Other than that my two year old loves this app we use it everyday. I am giving it three stars because this is an app that we pay for monthly and right now I can not use it because it keeps crashing.
I gave the gift of reading! 5/5
With Homer to my godchild and he LOVES it. He is learning new vocabulary and loves reading the interactive stories. Thanks Homer!!
It’s really great! 5/5
My son is 3 years old and has had issues in the past identifying certain letters. I’ve been using this app for a few weeks now and it’s certainly has been helpful, my son really loves it and it keeps him interested!!
Highly recommend !
Great app! 5/5
By Rachel Aubrey
We’re loving Homer so far. The profiles for multiple kids is perfect, allowing my kids at different levels to have their own experience all under the same subscription. With my older child now engaged, my youngest is now wanting to play and it works really well for him, too.
My 4 year old niece loves this app she isn’t allowed much screen time but whenever she is she’s always asking me for Homer reading, it has various categories to select from in terms of child’s interests and needs which is amazing!! I would highly recommend this app to anyone with school aged kids.
Great app 5/5
I love it💯💯
Great reading app for young kids 5/5
By I wish this was real
My kids are older, but was with a neighbor and her pre-schooler while she was using the app. Wish my kids had something this comprehensive when they were younger.
I wish this app was around when my kids were younger! 5/5
This app is awesome! Love how it combines individual interests and aptitude
