Customer Reviews

No Fun!

I initially found this product through an email, and somehow when I signed up I ended up with a PC only version. So when I downloaded the app and tried to log in I was denied access and it told me I had a "web based only" version for the free trial To make my experience even more fun, you can't cancel your free subscription without calling their 800 number M-F, 8-5, EST. When I finally got ahold of them the next week I was informed that I would have to delete my account and create a new one, and sign up yet again with my credit card info. To add insult to injury, about an hour after I canceled my account I received an email, offering me 50% off for six months if I stayed with them… For a web-based only account. Again, not what I wanted.

I can't speak to the quality of the product, but their customer service could use some serious work. It also seems manipulative to force a phone call to cancel something that you can sign up for online.

More Presidents Day content!

While a lot of other apps go for the easier to digest Valentine’s Day option at this time of year, Homer, true to form, digs deeper into information that will actually be useful to children in the future. And the Theodore Roosevelt lesson is sponsored by The American Museum of Natural History. We may never get to go there, but now my kids can have a part of the experience at home. They love the Night at the Museum movies so were excited to find more about TR in Homer yesterday.

My daughter loves this app!

I just downloaded this app to help my 3 year old daughter learn to read and she absolutely loves it from the minute he picked it up. The learning curriculum is really great and keeps my kid engaged for hours. Not to mention the illustrations are beautiful. This is one of the best learning apps I have downloaded. I would definitely recommend this to any parent with children. Good work Homer team. Keep it coming!!
