Ratings and Reviews
Teach young children early literacy skills using a comprehensive program full of interesting activities. Featuring everything from letter tutorials and short books to poems and folk songs, this expertly designed app will engage students with diverse learning styles. To help keep lessons fun and active, kids are prompted to draw pictures and record their thoughts, and they can even exchange virtual postcards with friends and family.
Proceed cautiously with “free” trial
This looked like a great app, so I downloaded and pressed the button for the free trial. Unfortunately, after that, things went sour. The app kept glitching out, so I was never able to get past log-in to access content. After two billings and two (still unresponded) emails to the company, I cannot recommend Homer.

If you could, please try reaching out directly to email@example.com. Our Member Experience team is here to help, and will assist you as quickly as possible.
I have spend last 60 minutes trying to put in my child’s year of birth 100 times. Just loops back to the same screen for the plan. When I click to sign up for the plan loops back again to the same screen. Such a waste of time.
Developer Response ,
We apologize for any frustration you have experienced when trying to use HOMER. It sounds like you may be stuck on a parent gate which requires you to enter in your date of birth, not your child's date of birth. These gates are to ensure that children are not able to access and edit important information in your account settings. If you continue to experience any issues, please write to our Member Experience team at firstname.lastname@example.org, and they would be happy to assist you!
