  • Toddler loves this app

    By larakendra92
    My toddler is singing to some of the songs she discovers
  • Extremely slow

    By petrsf
    My kids loved it until "it stopped working". I tried myself and was surprised how slow it is. I clicked "Storytime" and it took 19 seconds to load and then stopped reacting at all. My subscription is till December and I will not renew.
  • Great, when it works

    By Angof4
    We have had this app downloaded for less than a week. It worked great for the first couple of days. However, it keeps freezing up and does not work at all. Now to figure out how to not get charged for this app that will not work.
  • Good but...

    By swwwwyatt
    This has totally stopped working for us. Freezes constantly. Good when it works though!
  • It’s crashing and unresponsive.

    By Kuldeep Negi
    Hey, since last update, it is even more slower and crashing very frequently. Hung and become very unresponsive. I was very excited and pleased up until the last upgrade. All other apps working fine but not homer. Please look into it. Thanks.
  • I’m so far impressed

    I just download this app, and I’m definitely the one to not ever leave a comment or say much, but I love this app, my son is struggling in school with sight words , so I thought I’ll give it a try, listen guys this app is amazing , I’m more excited than he is. He loves this. Homer is his new friend. Lol ,he wakes up wanting to go on homer, I hear 15 minutes a day, but he’s on there for 2 hrs a day that how much he loves it. I told a friend about it, now she download the app . I wish we had this growing up. #TEAMHOMER
  • Glitchy

    By JoMulv16
    I can not deny the app itself is awesome...when it works. But I’ve tried everything I know to refresh the app, including restarting my phone, and when my daughter opens her pathway, it freezes on the day she picks and we can’t touch anything on the screen. Nothing downloads on the screen, it’s super lame. Will be deleting, and hopefully getting no more bills. Expensive for something that doesn’t work.
  • Runs TERRIBLE!!!!

    By crystal311:(
    This app would have gotten 5 stars from me, but it runs terribly slow on both my iPad mini and my iPhoneX. Crashes several times. We just tried using the app, tried for 15 mins. Crashed 2 times. We spent I’d say 13 of those 15 mins waiting for it to load. I plan on calling the company and requesting to cancel our subscription. I’m done paying every month for an app that my 3 year old can’t even enjoy. 😡😡😡
  • Would be higher but the app doesn’t work well

    By KOstapiuk
    My son loves this app and always asks to, “do his homework.” I love the different stages in his pathway. Unfortunately the app has stopped working. It says that it is downloading his lesson, but the app will then close. I would love to give this app 5 stars, but for the price this app should actually work.
  • Too many glitches

    By Heathersb9
    I did the trial and downloaded the updates but it never worked. The games either freeze, don’t let you click anything or the app just randomly shuts off and sends you back to the ipad home screen. I think it would be a great app if it worked.
