    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!
