  • Crashes constantly!

    By Kaye1976
    We just started using this and can’t get further than a few clicks without it crashing IF it even opens. Very frustrating and we have no clue what the actual app is like because we can’t get in! I want to cancel this subscription.
  • My kids are doing great!

    By Netara J.
    I use this app as a homeschool supplement. My sons are 2,4, and 5. They are growing greatly in just the short amount of time we’ve been using it. They do lessons everyday and my 5 year old is doing great reading on his own in just about a month. I expect him to be on a second grade level before the end of our school year! Thank you so much! Great Program! It’s so original and fun! I and my husband enjoy working with our kids!

    I would definitely recommend this app !! being a blind person, it was very refreshing to see an app that worked with the screen reader voiceover and the iPhone. My daughter loves this app as well! There are some buttons in the app that are not labeled correctly for voiceover, but that isn’t easy workaround. Thanks for such an awesome app
  • Question

    How do I change it to Spanish?
  • Game Changer

    By AEvans888
    We LOVE Homer! Our daughter struggled in school with letters, sounds, writing and overall confidence. Then was started using Homer. Her unique pathway grew her confidence and within a few weeks she was not only loving school again but also mastering writing skills and knew all the letter sounds! Homer was and is a game changer for our little one!

    I’ve been trying to delete this app and it’s like they are holding me hostage just to keep getting my money and no one to reach out to stop this nonsense. Please if you have any contact information about this app please let me know. ASAP. Thank you. Nancy Belser
  • My daughter loves this app!

    By iPhone Fan 500
    My daughter asked me to write this review because she loves Homer so much. She has learned many reading concepts through this app. The graphics are good, she loves the stories and poetry, and she loves sounding out words.
