  • Too many glitches

    I did the trial and downloaded the updates but it never worked. The games either freeze, don’t let you click anything or the app just randomly shuts off and sends you back to the ipad home screen. I think it would be a great app if it worked.
  • Stories not working

    Five-star app but stories (35% of app) stopped loading, so downgrade to 3. Give it 5 stars when fixed. Update: now main screen won’t load. Down to two stars. Will cancel subscription soon I they don’t respond.

    My son didn’t like this app at all, and the process to delete it was very obnoxious.

    Was so excited to play this with my daughter, but after trying on two different iPads, the app just keeps glitching and crashing. Now my 2 year old is extremely disappointed that she can’t play.

    This app is terrible! Always crashes and freezes! Please tell me how to cancel so I do not get charged for this junk.

    My kids love playing and I’m totally okay letting them have this screen time. The games change up so my kids don’t get bored. The program moves slowly enough for my preschooler and kindergartener to follow without getting frustrated but they progress fast enough I don’t feel like they are wasting time. So many reasons we have been loving Homer. My kindergartener is a little ahead of a lot of kids in her class so this is fun for us to let her spend time perfecting the things she knows and improving while still progressing.
  • A difficult registration process but seems to be working now.

    My 3yo loves it! I don’t have to make her do it, she wants to. ABC Mouse is ok but it’s kind of slow and my kids lose interest but this app moves along smoothly so she doesn’t get bored.
  • Would not let me get past the next stage after accepting free trial.

    I went for the free trial but it would not let me log on after excepting the 7.99 a month. I cannot get to the next lesson without the free trial and monthly payment always popping up in my face. Uggh frustrated, my daughter started to like this.
