    We LOVE Homer! Our daughter struggled in school with letters, sounds, writing and overall confidence. Then was started using Homer. Her unique pathway grew her confidence and within a few weeks she was not only loving school again but also mastering writing skills and knew all the letter sounds! Homer was and is a game changer for our little one!

    I’ve been trying to delete this app and it’s like they are holding me hostage just to keep getting my money and no one to reach out to stop this nonsense. Please if you have any contact information about this app please let me know. ASAP. Thank you. Nancy Belser

    My daughter asked me to write this review because she loves Homer so much. She has learned many reading concepts through this app. The graphics are good, she loves the stories and poetry, and she loves sounding out words.

    My son loves playing the games and has really picked up some useful knowledge. It glitches sometimes and the only way to fix it is to delete the app and reinstall. I am really getting sick of that. When we open it, it won’t let you click on anything. Please help Homer developers.
