  • Fantastic app even for 1.5 year old daughter

    My 1.5 year old daughter loves Homer. Whenever she sees the Homer app icon on my phone she squeals, asks for it, and can pretty much play on it by herself. She loves the Power Word videos, loves tickling Homer the pigeon, and particularly loves recording herself - she is still learning to talk but she will say “bababa” or “dadada”, and then replays her recording and giggle. Thank you Homer for developing such a delightful app!
  • Great for children with Autism

    My 4 year old has Autism and this year my goal was to get him off of YouTube and instead, an educational app. I’ve tried ABC mouse and compared to Homer, my son did not take to it. We’re working on learning the Alphabet and numbers. This app has already done wonders in reintegrating what I’m teaching him. The app focuses a lot on repetition which works GREAT with my son since he likes to repeat things. Ha ha! Please parents, get your little ones off YouTube and use Homer. This app really is great!
  • Pretty good app

    My son (3) loves this app! He’s been learning so much! My only complaint is, since the newest update, there are more stories on the pathway and less interactive learning. My kid only gets so much screen time, 20 minutes, and every other activity is a 5-8 minute story. At three years old, I would rather he not be just sitting and listening to stories while on the app. That’s what our story time is for!

    When I open the app it asks me to review my child’s pathway or start free trial. (I am already paying monthly for this app) I can not get past this first page. Therefore this app is useless. Unless this is fixed I will be cancelling. (I was billed yesterday) 😠

    My son never spoke much but he is able to know say the words Homer. And always wanting to learn, he is loving that he can write with his finger and he is wanting to read the books as well. The songs keep him coming back for more. Great learning app !! We love it
  • Extremely frustrating

    Learning to read can be a very emotional task. This app unfortunately does not help. I really wanted to like this app but after watching my daughter in tears for the 4th time because the app didn’t save her accomplished levels and dropped her back 2 levels, I realized it wasn’t worth the frustration. The app is very exciting when it works. Great celebration and sense of accomplishment but when that accomplishment is essentially taken away, that’s too much for a beginner to handle. Also, the app does not track progress between different devices. So if my daughter primarily works on her iPad and then maybe wants to use my phone, her progress will not display. To be fair, this is something they know and have admitted in there FAQ. All in all, there are many apps out there, find the one that will make the wonderful world of reading fun and not frustrating. One more thing, don’t bother contacting customer service, you will get no where fast.
