  • Proceed cautiously with “free” trial

    By BHill37
    This looked like a great app, so I downloaded and pressed the button for the free trial. Unfortunately, after that, things went sour. The app kept glitching out, so I was never able to get past log-in to access content. After two billings and two (still unresponded) emails to the company, I cannot recommend Homer.
  • Childs progress getting lost

    By Ari6a
    App is not working properly, wasted a ton of time trying to fix it. Kid’s progress I’s getting lost constantly. Homer’s support did not offer any solutions other than “reinstalling and updating”, five year old kid is very upset. I did not even get my money back. Wow.
  • Love this app for my 3 1/2 yr old!

    By stephanieg108
    Great app. Fun for my preschool-aged daughter. Educational. Helping her learn to identify and write letters, plus fun storybooks and activities that keep her engaged. Really well-made app!
  • Buggy

    By Jinglesdelarock
    This is is so buggy. It freezes, it locks up, it’s been inconsistent and irritating to start up for my child. For $8 a month I would have expected more original content and fewer issues
  • Bad forced pay

    By yyhgyhujhy3234
    Forced sign up and pay for monthly after “free” month
  • Problems

    By TreniseH
    This learning app keeps freezing up while my son is playing it.
  • Was great until....

    By Britt_niles91
    We can’t get past the “lets draw” path before it crashes and forces closed.
  • 🛑🛑🛑Worst App Ever🛑🛑🛑

    By blahhhhhhhhh90
    This app auto charged my card $7.99 twice each month. I didn’t even realize until I checked my bank statement,I’ve cancelled my subscription and hope that anyone that chooses to download this app keep a close eye on how sneaky the developers are and on their bank statements. 🤬🤬🤬
  • We like the app!

    By HulslanderFamily
    Our two youngest boys are 3 and 5. They both love using the Homer app. Our 5 year old enjoys the stories and the recording button. However, it does glitch from time to time causing them to be unable to continue on the pathway. I can’t say for sure that this is helping them learn how to read, but it is definitely nice to have a fun educational app to keep them occupied.
  • Ran into problem

    By Mally C.
    This was a really cute app and my four year old was really loving it. Then we came to a matching game that only has three cards. Obviously you can make one match but the remaining card has no match... so *this* level can’t be completed and we can’t move on to the next level. I will cancel the subscription before the trial ends.
