HOMER Reading: Learn to Read Reviews


4year old  ginerbliner  5 star

Homeschool Coach  MzNelo  5 star

I use the Homer App for my students and they love it.


Make for all ages please  patick1982  1 star

Make for all ages 30 year old still lean how read love the app let use it because of my age why 1 Star review


Fantastic.  MassageMom16  5 star

Although I am not sure why it says ages 4 plus , my son is 2 1/2 and loves Homer. He is an extremely intelligent little guy , so I often find it hard to challenge him . He is constantly asking to “ play with Homer “ , and is being challenged with letters , numbers , shapes , and a constant variety so he doesn’t get bored. Worth the $7.99 so far !!


Too sloooow loooaaadiiiing  Habagat0791  1 star

I don’t know if the paid app is fast in loading but the trial version can make u give up using this app. Very slow to not loading at all. I dont know if they designed it that way to make you buy the app but it effects the opposite way. Find another as am I.


Always freezing  marq50  2 star

My daughter want to play Homer taps the app chooses her profile then the game decides to freeze. Can not choose anything and the music just plays while she starts to fiercely tap everything to see if anything works. Still nothing so I end turning if off. Don’t think it’s worth the money if you can’t play and learn.


This App didnt work for me  rash2905  1 star

I downloaded it and set it up for my kid and it didnt work.. so i cancelled subscription, i have just been charged 8$ for this month, please refund and tell me what step i missed to cancel subscription?


Keeps crashing  nomoads  3 star

Loved this app, but latest version keeps crashing... can’t even get lessons to start anymore


Fantastic program for my children  Andrew.d.orton  5 star

Homer is educational and fun for the children. For my little kids, it includes all areas of English: sounds, letters, books, and more. Homer then puts those building blocks in a way that makes sense to the kids. When I can’t teach them, I can trust that Homer will do it right. My kids now request to use Homer on a regular basis. Plus, the price was right. Thanks Homer for putting this program out there for my children!


Child Loves It  Bee144  5 star

Update: iPad Pro 11” support has been added! No more ugly black bars. Thank you for listening and quickly implementing support. This app is now worthy of 5 stars. My child loves it! Original comment: I would give 5 stars but for a monthly subscription, I would hope to see the latest devices supported. App has ugly black bars and doesn’t make full use of our 11” iPad Pro (gen 3) screen. It’s been out for 7 months and I thought Apple required all devs to support XS Max and 11” iPP starting March 27th?


Charged the card for Trial period  Mmm1890  1 star

Can’t understand why my card was charged for a supposed to be a FREE Trial period? I have provided the details thinking the card will not be charged until 30 days trial, but you still charged me?


Bad app do not download this app  Krisine23456718888888899999  1 star

I have been using it app and I can’t do anything nathing works out do not download this app

Happy peoples!

Sorry if you hate me now  Happy peoples!  1 star

You need money for the trial AND I’M SORRYY IF YOU HATE ME NOWWWWWWWWW


Almost perfect  ctippett  4 star

I use Homer for four of my five children. The app has a great interface and has engaged one of my reluctant learners. The only (and it's tiny) thing I would love to see included is the option to upload an image of the child for their profile for those who can not yet identify their name - my youngest child is two years old and enjoys the app but struggles with the ”who is playing section” and with her growing independence of ”me do it pweeze” a photo option would make this so much easier.


Not very impressive  Dengdengdend1223456789  1 star

Purchased but don't think it's good enough.


Was asking me to creat account every time!  ellemogh  1 star

I was so excited about this app, but every time it was asking me to creat account although I was already subscribed and agreed to the monthly payment and received the confirmation email! When it was going through successfully the orientation of the screen was not right and I was not able to change it to landscape no matter how many times I tried different approach! Maybe it hasn’t been designed for iPhone 10


Great app  wbruceis  5 star

My daughter loves it, and is learning well


No good!  Amsie77  1 star

Just downloaded and it won’t do anything. Dissapointing when I had Head such good things.

Broken cant move pass P on ios 12  Vid Erata  1 star

Tried 3 different ipads. Please fix


Awesome app, well done!  Ssh7180  5 star

Fabulous app. My children love it, and it has improved their reading skills dramatically! The content is informative, interesting, and relevant... perfect for developing and inquisitive minds. Well done on wonderful app!


Educational Gem  dorphlthewise  5 star

My three children have been using this app for years now. It keeps their minds active and they are excited to learn. I never have to prompt them to take the next step on their “personalized pathway.” I have notice an improvement in penmanship compared to kids who do not use this app. Safe, entertaining and educational, this app has it all. Well worth the cost.


Ipad works, stopped working on iphone xs and xr  samuca  1 star

Second update it stopped working for me. Have deleted and installed many times. Problem persists, it works in the ipad. Does not work in iphone xs and xr. Crashes when you select the person that will use the app. Already sent couple emails, i might cancel this.


App will not load  sldkbd  1 star

This app will not load. I was charged for a month and am unable to get a refund for the month.

Pavan C.

Issue with payment  Pavan C.  1 star

I submitted a message through the app few days back regarding a payment/subscription issue and still no response. Very poor customer service.


This is awesome!  JD0192837465  5 star

I tried ABC Mouse and even I had troubles navigating it and bc of that one site I almost didn’t try another. I am happy I did bc Homers reading is amazing and so easy for my four year old son to navigate. He loves to play it, he loves the games and he is learning at the same time. I would recommend this to everyone!

melissa letos

Doesn’t work regularly  melissa letos  2 star

when I can get it to actually function this is my favorite app. I have 3 1/2-year-old twins and it’s great. However we have been paying for a subscription for six months and if I can figure out how to get to the App Store I’m going to cancel it. When I open up the app to try and set it up for my kids and I go to their path way more than 50% of the time I am on able to get it to load. We have 4G service and solid Wi-Fi in our home. All of the other educational apps work fine. It seems like it would be my problem but we are having the same issue on our other iPad and with none of our other apps so I have to assume it’s Homer. I came here today to see if I needed to download a different version or update it to see if maybe that was the problem


Would be great if it worked  Pokego553  4 star

It seems the app has been updated and is working good now. —— Seems like a great idea, but too often the app won’t start. When it does finally start there are multiple parts that crash it. I’d be a happy subscriber if it simply worked consistently


fun app  bluetoad102011  5 star

it will Teach you to learn


App works now  Brightpearson  5 star

This app was great and worth every penny of the subscription. The pathway which my 3 yr old was so interested in solving crashed and didn’t work for 2 weeks. Now it is back up and running. Great response from the developer team


Glitch  Juskelun  1 star

My daughter loves this app until she got to the activity bbq bop. You can click on it but gives no instructions as to what to do and does nothing when you tap on anything. She wants to continue playing it but until this glitch is fixed it looks like we will be looking for a different app.
