We’re #1 because we actually teach kids to read. Kids love us because they are having fun. After a 30-day FREE trial, Homer costs only $7.99/month. You’ll need to enter your Apple ID and set up payment for the trial, but can easily cancel at any time in your iTunes account settings.

And unlike most apps that just offer reading and spelling practice, Homer is home to the most advanced reading curriculum that teaches a child to read and spell one step at a time while they explore topics they are passionate about.

How do we do it? Our advanced algorithm delivers to your child exactly what lessons they need when they need it and your child chooses what passions they want to explore to deepen their knowledge.

Educators can access Homer free in 2017-2018. Perfect for small groups, center time, & libraries.


“This is the 1st learning program that my 4 yr old wants to continue to use! Most apps she likes for a few days & is back to something else.. she has chosen this over her favorite "YouTube" kids! That speaks volumes! I think the interaction is a huge part.”
-Ashley G. Mom of a 4 year-old

“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

"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.

Customer Reviews

Hooray for Homer

We love the new pathways! My daughter is so engaged and so committed to learning. She loves sharing what's she's learned in stories. She loves that HER interests count. She adores the games -- Super Stickers is a huge favorite! And the new matching games, too. Her reading has improved hugely. I could not be happier and, more importantly, neither could she.

Amazing engagement

My kids (4 and 6) love this app. I use it as a reward. And I don't feel guilty about the time they spend because they really learn so much. The stories are beautiful, and I hear the kids singing the songs from the stories all the time.

Loving Homer!

We have been using Homer with my 5 year old for a while, and absolutely love the new update. With all the new stuff, my 2 year old is using Homer now also, or as he calls it “oma”! Can’t wait to see what else they have coming!
