  • Lefties version would be nice.....

    We just downloaded this app today. Im a lefty mother of a 3 year old lefty and it would be great to have a left-handed option when setting up the child’s personal profile. For example, when tracing the letters A and O, a lefty traces them backward from what the instruction states. It would be so nice to be praised for tracing the letters in a way that is most comfortable for a lefty.

    We signed up via a free trial. Once the trial was over we were then unable to access the app and now billed every cycle with no way to cancel. We have been billed @ $100 for an app that has not worked for us. Now our child has outgrown it and we are still stuck with it! DO NOT SIGN UP!!!!!!
  • Your child may learn to lisp

    I have two complaints. I was really excited to try this for my 3yo who reads at a first grade level. Unfortunately, the reading level was started with letter identification. I was going to see if I could change his age to fix that but I didn’t bother. I didn’t bother because the child’s voice programmed into the app that tells stories has a lisp! My child tends to pick up on accents and I know he will imitate the child’s lisp. I don’t understand why the developer of this app thought it was a good idea to use a child’s voice who has a lisp. I plan to find another app and I will cancel this subscription.
  • The app keeps crashing.

    Every time I open the app it loads then crashes. I’m certainly not paying $7.99 a month for something I can’t use. Hopefully this issue is resolved soon or I will be deleting and canceling.

    Ocean loves this app we play together and she’s learning so much. Huge problem I’m paying for this App and ur won’t even start up it keeps crashing. How can you have ppl paying for something that’s not working?! Very disappointing if your going to have an app that ppl pay monthly for it should be working at all times so 2 Stars
  • Can’t play because it won’t stop crashing

    My 4 year old and I were both excited about this game but we’ve tried to play about 20 times and only one of those times the game hasn’t crashed upon log-in. I just updated the app and the update description said they got rid of a bug that made the app crash... ? Or not. We were using the free month trial which we got from iTunes and luckily it was easy to cancel.

    We use homer as part of my daughter’s homeschooling program. It is been a vital support in helping her learn to read. The music is also great, different and refreshing! Sometimes the app can be glitchy, but reaching out to support is easy and they been highly responsive and helpful. This program has taught daughter so much! We love it!
  • Loving HOMER.
