“Homer has something for everyone! My two year old is not ready to read, but he loves the songs, stories and games. When he’s ready, he’ll use the learn to read lessons just like my older son who is 5 and sounding out words. It’s great to have one app that they both love.” Kate G. mom of two boys.
“My daughter uses Homer every single day! Her teachers tell me she is reading way above grade level and I know it’s because of Homer.”
- Kelly S., mom of a Kindergarten student

Additional Homer Info:
“One of the most comprehensive apps for teaching reading.”
- The New York Times
"In just six weeks, with no intervention from teachers, students who used Homer for 15 minutes per day improved the key skills most highly correlated with future reading success. That’s a big deal.”
- Dr. Susan B. Neuman, Former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education, Professor of Early Childhood & Literacy Education, NYU quoted in USA Today.
Throughout 2017, Homer is free to qualified and verified teachers and librarians to support educational instruction with progress tracking for up to 32 individual students.
A recent study showed using Homer 15 minutes a day over a 6 week period nearly doubled scores on the Test of Preschool Early Literacy, making it perfect for whole and small-group instruction, resource rooms and libraries as the most reliable and effective app for teaching a child to read.
“I have LOVED having this wonderful resource right at my fingertips! … The content is rich and correlates with what the students are learning. I have had several teachers ask me about how they can use it in their classrooms! Everyone is so impressed, including the kids!”
- Amanda H., Elementary School Teacher

What is the cost after 30 day trial??
My twins really like this app and the progress they’ve made is quite amazing. Would highly recommend it
My daughter is sounding out words much better
So glad to have found Homer just as the school year is ending. I'm excited to have the kids use Homer over the summer to work on their letters and reading, even more excited that they actually ask to play with Homer!
It seems like every time this app has an update, it logs me out, and when I sign back in, I'm forced to either choose the free month before subscribing, or log out and not be able to use the app at all. I have spoken with support before about this issue, and they reassured me we could continue to use the app for longer than one month for free, and just not have access to the subscription-only features, so I'm not sure why this keeps happening. We love this app and recommend it to everyone we know with a child, but this continually happening is very irritating.
The homer app keeps my son's attention without it seeming like homework and sometimes it makes him giggle.
Great app and customer service
This app has been really helpful! I have a first grader who reads at a kindergarten level. I'm hoping to get him on level with supplements like this one.
With asked you pay with you credit card number and charge monthly automatically, and every time ask if you are parents or teacher and your birthday and password and so on to make sure kids can never do anything by themselves ! So always need bother adults! And since kids don't even like it so long time no use it so every Tim when I remember to ask them to do it I don't even remember the password! And I so much HATE it need I help to get to use a kids app!
My kids love the product and I really love using the product with my kids. They love the recording of there voices
Homer is hands down the best learn to read program out there. I love that my godson asks for it and is so engaged. Keep up the good work!
$80 bucks a year only first month free save yourself the time and hassle
Downloading the app is free but after a month its an $80 a year.
Very disappointed that the cost doesn't show up until after you do the preview with your child & they are intrigued. Very sad
This app is way better and actually teaches phonics without confusing your child!
Would love to try this app out But trying to log in and all it does is spins and spins. Why does it need to contact iTunes I tried this on 3 different emails and same things Spinning.......
With 4 young kids I may have tried every educational app out there. Learn with Homer is by far the best educational app on the market. One of my daughters had learned to read at 4 years old just playing the app 20 minutes a day. I was shocked when I started doing phonics lessons at home with her and she already knew! Our whole family has loved the history lessons, folklore and folk songs! I love when we get to a history lesson (we homeschool) and my kids can add information they've learned from Homer. My kids are no longer preschool-kindergarten ages, but Homer continues to enrich our lives and education because of all my kids learned from it. I will continue to recommend it as the best app out there!
The Homer app has been quite a game-changer for our family. My grandson has been struggling to read and the app has not only motivated him to want to read, but he is also feeling more confident about reading. The recording functionality is really helpful and engaging and I can see his face light up as he completes each level. Thank you for creating this wonderful product!
Love the tool Keeps the children engaged. They love it Great opportunity for all of us to learn Spanish and French!
