  • Better than the rest

    By Douliss2
    We tried ABC Mouse with our 3 year old daughter. She was not interested at all. So, we hesitated to try Homer, but decided to give it a try. She's learning and has favorite things she goes directly to in the app. Thanks!
  • Just WOW!

    By Faith373
    I am a teacher and am learning new things about animals while using this with my foster kids. Did you know an owl has 3 eye lids? I’m engaged while they play on it. The only complaint is there are not a lot of challenging brain games for the older kids. But there is so much other stuff to keep them engaged. LOVE THIS APP!
  • MOM & DAD stereotypes

    By one fabulous mom
    My 6 & 2 year olds love this app. They love the stories that are read to them. They like to earn wickles for their pickle. It isn’t a struggle to get my 6yo to follow his learning path. He’s remembering words. They love the stories that are read to them. I did too until I heard the MOM & DAD little videos back to back. MOM gets yelled at, while DAD gets sweetly spoken too. Way to further these stereotypes. Be nice to DAD, but MOM deserves to be yelled at. Hmmmm.

    So I created a pathway, and then it says “Start free trial”. REALLY? I’m not gonna just start my free trial because I have to. You NEED to update this. 🙄

    Homer is a great tool to get young kids excited about learning and bettering their reading score! Kids love the voice recording feature that helps them wit pronunciation and annunciation.
  • Great for kids with autism

    My daughter is 6 years old and she loves repetition. She loves playing the different games and songs but isn’t too stuck on repeating one or two that she won’t explore and keep finding new things! Just wish it wasn’t as expensive.
  • Better than ABC mouse

    The app was too easy for my child. We deleted the app and I was still charged $20 for a subscription renewal.
