Daughter Requests 5/5
My formerly YouTube obsessed 3yo gets very limited screen time each day and now specifically requests Homer during her free choice time (in addition to the 10-15 minutes that we do of Homer together each morning). I am so impressed.
App never worked 1/5
I purchased this subscription last year and it worked for a few months until my son got into the further levels. We purchased other reading apps for him that were GREAT and never had any issues with. I completely forgot about it the Homer app until now. Wish I would have canceled and stop paying sooner. Total waste of money!
Upset mama...Upset child 1/5
I decided to pay for the yearly subscription,but now that I have done that, the app logged my daughter out and now won’t let her do any learning activities..Also, when I tried to get in contact with support, it says I don’t have an email registered to my apple account even though I do! I need to talk to someone asap! My daughters 30 day trial won’t even work!
Worst customer service 1/5
Worst customer service. The app never works. Customer service is non existent! Email only and even after a week still no response. We’ve had the app for 2 months and can barely access it because it constantly stalls/takes forever to load/never works. I’ve done all the updates and made sure every is up to date. We have no problems with ABCmouse or Khan academy kids. Save your money. Don’t get this app. It’s crap!
Won’t let me create account 1/5
Subscribed and signed up to pay after free trial. Nothing else happens just keeps cycling through subscribing. Really disappointed seems like a cool game
Not bad 4/5
By Preschool Prep Mom
My 2 year old is behind on his development and I am doing a “Preschool Prep” course with him this year. This app along with speech therapy helps him learn his basic shapes and colors as well as basic life words. He’s even learning his letters!
My only concern now is that when he clicks on an activity, it won’t load. It has put his progress to a halt and now he’s losing interest. Our WiFi connection is running at high speeds, so we ruled that out. I hope it gets fixed to where he can play again in the next update.
Non existent customer service 3/5
As much as I and my daughter love this app, it has really helped her in her reading journey but it has gotten so frustrating in the last one week to the point that she now dreads using the app because it crashes and keeps taking her back to the courses she has done. It hangs and won’t go on and there is nobody to talk to.
I have sent emails 3 times with no response. I have reached out to them once on their Facebook and twice on Twitter still no response.
I’m in my trial period and would have been super glad to continue but with such terrible customer service I think I will need to look elsewhere.
Such a shame it didn’t work out fine
Great for my son who’s just learning English as an 8 year old 5/5
My son is new to the US, his first language is Mandarin. This app has been amazing for him! I’m a kindergarten teacher, and I’m very finicky about the resources we use for teaching these fundamental concepts. I really love the phonics, the word segmenting, the beginning reading practice, and the sight words. He is building confidence he is really enjoying it. Thank you!
I LOVE Homer but... 3/5
By Breeze of Carmel
The app freezes every time we finish a lesson on the path. We’ve tested this on multiple phones and we’re forced to close out the entire app and reload it. Again, I love the concept and curriculum but it is a bit inconvenient to have to keep closing it.
Developers, please help!! Thanks for all you do!
Horrible Parent Dashboard 1/5
I could not load the Parent Dashboard. My son create all kind of accounts, which I want to control it. I could not get back to my dashboard. Wasting $45/years.
I subscribed today where is my access 1/5
If I’m supposed to have a free trial why it keeps taking me back to plan subscriptions?
My son loves the app, but so many bugs! 3/5
My son loves the app and has definitely learned a lot. However, there are so many bugs! It often freezes and I need to restart the app. Also he’ll do a bunch of work, get through multiple levels and then the app will glitch and it goes back a few levels or even the beginning. This has happened three times. I love the app, but I wish they could fix these issues. Also, customer service is very slow to respond.
Runs out of new material 3/5
If you work hard you run out of new material.
Great app 5/5
My 6 year old adores this app, it keeps her interest and she prefers this compared to ABC Mouse.
Way to good 3/5
Hello this is Isabels mum and she is in 2 grade and her friend Lizzie has to help her alll the time so I was spending time with her daughter she said Homer is sooo much fun so I called Isabel and she said what is that?
And I said homer. And Isabel said can I have it? And I said fine because it was a learning app so I got it and she played and played and now she knows HOW TO READ!
Fraud - unable to cancel 1/5
Unlike the terms that state you can send an email to cancel, you get a response saying you have to go through a “cancellation process” that doesn’t work.
I paid for a year subscription, my money was taken and I can’t get in, no one will return my email. 1/5
I can’t use the app I paid a year subscription for. I notified via your website the contact us email and still have heard nothing. I want my money back. I have nothing to use for my purchase.
Son loves it but App keeps freezing 3/5
The app seems to be great my toddler enjoys using it but the frustration comes every time after he completes one lesson- the app freezes constantly and I have to close it out and reopen it.
What a amazing app 5/5
By Fatima Chokr
So I’m the oldest and decided to get this app for them so I asked my mom and said it’s fine and when we got it they were non stop they are now learning so much but still prefer watching tv and the I pad lol and now I got it once again it changed there life especially since school started who ever is reading this it’s a amazing app I recommend it for your kids too. Best app ever
This app is terrible! 1/5
It is so terrible you don’t just give the kids A reading experience once they go on you have to login now that is just terrible 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
Not working 1/5
I downloaded the app signed up for the subscription is not working. I don’t understand why it doesn’t load up. Now I feel like in a month time I’m going to be robbed. Is this app legit or is it fake? I’m not getting anything when I tried to load it.
Keep charging $9.99 even not subscribe 1/5
This app is a scam, I had cancel subscription after downloading it coz my son is not interested in it, but the app keep charging me 9.99 per month!
Cannot access further 3/5
I am a subscriber.
one day it started stop working.
So I reinstalled the app, but the app requires another subscription since then. While I am doing already.
My daughter loves this application so I’d like to make this right again.
Maybe I put wrong email address after I reinstalled the app.
Please tell me how can I remove the wrong address that already registered in the app.
Thank you! 5/5
I’ve been trying to teach my 3 year old her letterings and it’s been hard for her to retain the information. I came across this app and decided to give it a shot using the free trial. I’m so glad I did! It’s been 2 weeks since she’s been using the app to learn her letters and sounds and I’m amazed at how well she’s able to retain her learning. She’s learned Aa, Tt, Pp, Mm, and currently on Nn so far. Can’t wait to see how far she’ll learn with this app.
Doesn’t even open just loads 1/5
By overit. 1
It never lets me in I paid and for nothing.
Forgot password and there wasn’t anything to link to for recovery or reset. Your basically going in circles trying to log on. Forget it. Use ABC mouse instead. Canceled my subscription.
It’s really fun for my daughter Olivia she is only 7 years old 4/5
Enjoy but... 3/5
I enjoy this app but after I started paying for it the app will not go past The Who’s playing part . It just loads and loads never goes to the actual path to play . Not sure why but I might uninstall . Super disappointed.
Like it so far! 3/5
Usually it’s very hard to keep my son’s attention but he loves this app. He is non-verbal but he’s learning and you can really tell!
I took away a star because I have an account and it was originally created on my phone, but when I opened it on my tablet, it didn’t take me to sign in, instead, it kept prompting me to subscribe again. There was no way to back out the screen and even closing the app did nothing to reset it. I’ve even tried uninstalling but it still brings me to the same page. I had to delete it and wait a few days before redownloading and it took me to the login homepage.
Did Homer changed? 1/5
I used Homer to teach but it seems that everything changed.. is there a way to go back to the old version? Honestly I liked it better before
Cool 😎 5/5
my kid loves this app and it is amazing for them and i will give it a five star ⭐️
Bad purchase 1/5
By wonder woman and Supergirl2
I hate it a regretful purchase.....
App deleted TWO WEEKS of hard earned progress 1/5
I’ve tried multiple programs/apps to get my four year old son interested in reading. Homer was finally one that kept him engaged and it seemed like he was learning from it. But two weeks into using the app, we opened it to discover ALL of the progress he had made was DELETED. Needless to say, I’m furious and my son is sad. Apparently this has happened to other people, as well. Cancelled my membership immediately.
Great app 5/5
My son almost reached the highest level.
He enjoys Homer so much.
A little bit amazing 5/5
The intent wasn’t ever to force my kid into learning, he just turned 3 and I don’t want to overwhelm him. That said, several weeks into playing Homer on a regular basis and he is sounding out words, recognizing which letters form together to spell names of the places we go and showing a genuine interest in learning to read and write. If this is the effect that a game can have on my kid then I am all for it! Only drawback I can foresee is running out of content. Quickly.
Missing features 1/5
My child has the teacher login and none of the features are present to teach them how to read that are in the non-teacher subscription. Why are these different?
I hate it 1/5
By Isabelle valentina
it's terrible yikes. too terrible so that's why I hate it. and it's boring.and why can I turn it into second grade kids？
No cancellation option 1/5
Don’t get this app. There’s no way to cancel it. I purchased from App Store. But nothing showing in my subscriptions. So naturally I went to contact them. No phone number and auto-responses from emails sent. I contacted Apple and they couldn’t find a subscription with Homer either. I don’t have/never have had another iTunes account. This is ridiculous. It’s literally charged me for the past two months. No one will get back to me. Do not sign up. Even with free trial!!
I haven’t played this in a LONG time 4/5
From my memory, I think I LOVED THIS
Now I remember why I deleted it 2/5
Loved this app at first. But for some reason it freezes ALL THE TIME. Not worth paying for something that can’t be used.
Updated: Subscribed but not able to access 4/5
We downloaded the app and registered our cc details for monthly deductions but we were not able to access the app. UPDATE: we were contacted by customer support who found a glitch, fixed it and then were kind enough to extend our free trial since we had lost some time. We have been using the app for two weeks. It was worth the effort. The pace of some of the exercises is quicker than in other apps so keeps our daughter engaged. She loves the games and voice recordings. This app works for us and I would recommend it. In addition, customer support was great.
App Will Not Load 1/5
By Lets work it out
I purchased a subscription for my daughter and the app will not load at all!! I have rebooted my iPad over and over in hopes of getting it to work and sent emails, and have had no response. This is disappointing and frustrating after having paid for the subscription!! Wasting money!,
Love it but has been freezing 4/5
Recently the app freezes
Great Activities...but... 3/5
Great activities and games for my kid to learn from and play with, and my son likes them. I just wished that it updates across devices so that my son can pick up where he left off on any device. And also the app’s interface on an iPad is different from the one in a fire tablet (and vise versa) and the one on the fire tablet have misarranged or overlapping graphics too :(
App keeps freezing 3/5
By Bulbul Rajon
Hi, This app constantly keeps freezing after just 5 minutes of usage. This is happening in both of my iPad Pro 2020 and iPad Pro 2017.
If this keeps happening I am not sure if I will keep the subscriptions after the trial period. Please fix this.
Takes a long time to load and hangs 1/5
This app was great at first but after awhile it has failed to load too many times.
Not working 1/5
By nickname that important?
I debated a while before I decided to subscribe to the app. Right after I took my time to add card information & subscribe I get a message free trail was canceled even though I didn’t start yet & now it can not get pass the subscription screen. Reset app it’s the same thing. Kind of a bad start to something that’s $60 a year
IM BEING CHARGED WHEN I UNSUBSCRIBES OVER A YEAR AGO! 1/5
By Tia Briggs
Please offer some contact information. I have contacted Apple support and they stopped the recurring charges. They say that Homer is continuing to charge me when they shouldn’t be. I have no way of contacting you all.
Deletes progress 1/5
My son completed a bunch of stuff, and logged in today it’s all gone and he’s back to square one
