    Looks like a great app but it says free. It shouldn’t say free and not be free. It should say trial. Disappointed

    My five year old is obsessed with this app. I love it because her letter recognition improved so quickly. She loves showing off to her friends and grandparents. The content is also really gorgeous, especially compared to other apps. It makes me think they care a lot about the product they are presenting. Overall very happy!

    My 2 granddaughters live with me, and also their parents. I live in a not so good area, so they are home schooled. They are ages 12 and 13. They had learned a lot, but none of the other schools really pushed reading very much. They were really behind on their reading level. Then I found Homer it has been an answer to prayer. The 12 year old read 4 books last night. Hip, Hip, hurray.

    I started using Homer for my 2 year old with a speech delay. The app is easy to use and he loves all the little games, stories, and songs. The subscription price is not too expensive and is worth it for all the fun and learning you get. I had an issue with not being able to get the app to work on a new device. Customer support responded to my email and had me up and running within the hour! If you haven’t tried this app yet, do it! It’s one of our favorites.
  • Love the app

    My son been using this app for months. He’s not even 2! He recognizes the colors and letters. He even does most of the games on his own. Wish they could switch up the order on some of the games to make it a little more difficult. He seems to understand the pattern.

    I dislike it when it seems like there’s a free version but you have to fill out your credit card information and cancel a subscription to get it. It’s deceptive especially after spending 3 minutes setting up a profile.
