  • It actually works!!

    By NYCgal1109
    I gifted HOMER to my best friend and her family for the holidays and her 5 year old can’t get enough of it! Not only is she having fun, but she’s actually reading faster and learning more words through the app. What a powerful program for young learners!
  • Should be five stars

    By Shine4christ
    I truly love the Homer app. I am a teacher and have four kids as well. The way that Homer teaches is wonderful! Unfortunately, we have difficulties getting the app to work on our older devices, which is what the kids play on. So we will be discontinuing our subscription.
  • Love It

    By alyssaH777
    Great app for my son to learn! He loves it! I would highly recommend.
  • It keeps crashing

    By Judythe mom
    Great program when it works. But mostly it doesn’t.
  • Was promising

    By BamBamLex
    Loved it in the beginning until a few months after it kept asking my son (4) to upgrade. For 7.99/mo and my son kept getting the same request over and over when he hit a hard stop. He couldn’t go any further with the games until he upgraded.
  • Teacher review

    By Kklotown
    Works great! I love that it has an interest inventory before beginning to engage children based on their interest.
  • Paid for two months and never worked

    By Lizdunn007
    Paid for two months and all the features were locked. It kept asking me to enter in all my child’s info every single time before it would open and I just didn’t have the time for me to actually go in and play with all the features each time to figure out what was going on. Very frustrating. Then of course trying to get your money back was not easy or even possible. Contacted the developer and they told me to contact apple. Now that took some time to figure that out because there are to options to apply for or contact them for a refund. Lots of time wasted on my part for an app that never worked.
  • Great app!

    By @kikidoo07

    By Denisse C.

  • Perfect for grandkids

    By papajoe1960
    My granddaughter loves Homer and I see she is learning to read letters.
  • Buggy and not user friendly at all

    By deadmanwalking11
    Bought this and tried to get it to work correctly for a few weeks and it’s full on bugs. A lot of the functions work outside of the app and forces you to do on a web browser. You can’t delete users as well so it can get messy fast. Very disappointed and frustrated. Can’t understand why anyone with rank this high at all.
  • Hooray for Homer

    My nieces and nephew love this app! Its great entertainment when they come to visit!
  • Exceptionally poor peformance

    By Galnar
    Unless you have the latest generation iPad and a very fast pipe, your kids will not have the patience. Hard freeze at least one per session.
  • Love

    By Teacher-Grandma
    Homer is positive and encouraging! We love this app!
  • Wonderful!

  • So amazing!

    By jorjordoh
    I’m a teacher and all my kids LOVE this app! Run don’t walk to download HOMER! 👍🏻👍🏻
  • Good app

    By Segyptianaura
    My two year old has gone all the farther on her pathway that she can, and we miss the Wickle dress up! Now you tube kids is just as good for her. Maybe when she is older she will have fun again, but for now I canceled the subscription. Please bring back the Wickle feature.
  • Love it!

    By ktylima
    User friendly, fun, educational and an overall great tool for kids!

  • My son loves to read now!

    By allicat92
    Not only is my son reading better than ever before, he actually ENJOYS reading now! Would recommend to anyone whose children struggle with the desire to learn how to read. Nothing makes me happier than to experience my son having fun while learning.
  • Teaching Tyler

    By tylerkenny619
    This app keeps my child ahead of the game at all times. Tyler has learned so much in such a short amount of time. Highly recommend 👍
  • So great!

    By Labdielac
    Love using this with my students to help them with reading and phonics! Great app
  • Great app

    By apersoniknow
    My son’s teacher recommended I download Homer to help him with his reading as he was having some trouble. We’ve been using it for months and he is really improving! He’s starting to become such a confident reader, I can’t recommend this program enough.
  • Thanks Homer!

    By Hamm836
    With a 1,4 and 6 year old I’m always looking for screen time that isn’t just YouTube kids. Homer is perfect for my middle and older ones, I’ve seen so much improvement in the months since they’ve been playing!
  • Educational Fun!

    By AndyCuse
    The Homer app is a great way to provide my nephew with some educational fun!
  • I love this app!

    By Deejmeister

  • Grandkids

    By farfar Arild

  • So great!

    By macsmom4287
    My son loves this and I do too!
  • Really amazing app

    By mamapalsson
    My child loved the app from the first time I gave it to them. I really appreciated how it was truly personalized to my child and the lessons are really engaging and thoughtful. Most learning apps are full of tricks to win prizes to dress up your character, this one is built around the fun of learning
  • Homer is so helpful!

    By erical2002
    I’ve been using Homer with the students i tutor, the games are fun and the kids love to use it. I can’t wait to play with my niece when she’s a little older!
  • My son loves Homer!

    By happyhomerlover
    We got Homer about 3 months ago and he is obsessed. He’s been making progress with his phonics and letters. There are also a lot of bedtime stories that I can read to him. I’m so happy that there are educational apps like this.
  • Great app!!

    By evelynkl1
    My granddaughter loves this app and I really see amazing improvement! It’s our favorite thing to do together!
  • It works

    By MamaYana80
    My boys 6 and 3 love this app. Every time I give the the iPad this is the first app they ask for. And I could see it working, they are learning quickly. I love the fact that it’s personalized for each one and while my older boy can play games dinosaurs which he likes, the younger one plays animal games.
  • Cannot unsubscribe and being charged

    By mr!23432!
    Very bad experience. I was logged out of the app after the trial charge and couldn’t log back in to cancel the subscription. I contacted iTunes to cancel the subscription and still being charged.
  • The best reading app I found

    By lanadelberg
    I’m a teacher and I was looking for an app that would gradually teach my daughter how to read. I’ve tried a lot of different apps, including ABC mouse, Teach my monster and nothing even comes close. Homer was the only app that came close to having a real curriculum. My daughter absolutely loves it, she always asks to play. She started out with learning letters and now she’s is on to reading simple words. It’s was glitchy for two weeks, but I think they fixed it because it works perfectly fine now.
  • No STARS

    By lilwaif
    Do not try this app, not a really great app we tried it one day and never looked at it again. With that being said, doing a trial, they have you purchase a subscription unknowingly and do an unauthorized charge in your bank account. I don’t ever use my bank account to pay for iTunes. Save your money and delete app!
  • What

    By qrae27
    I love this app but my brother got past the first level and we weren’t able to get to the next one, also no where did it show how to Change the level
  • My nephew loves it!

    By Hoos123
    I got this app when I was babysitting my nephew. It’s great - he’s having fun while learning how to read. Will definitely recommend this to my friends with kids.
