    This app is awesome! It has so many different options to choose from. My 4 year is going to be obsessed.
  • Best app ever!

    By Animartrom12
    Have used this app with my 3 yr old and he just loves it. It's so much fun that he doesn't realize he's learning to read. The makers really did an amazing job with this app. Is there one for math in the works thought?
  • Fun and effective program

    By maoriord
    My three and half year old wants to learn to read like her older sister and was asking for a school to learn. Homer has been wonderful for her. She is absorbing letter and phonics. She asks to do it almost everyday. Even thought her almost 7 year old sister can read well we needed to add her to the app too. She loves the stores and is learning so much from the history/ natural science section!
  • App not working for me. Please help!

    I am soooo excited for my 2 year old to start using this app. I've signed up and creating a profile. However, once I open the app, go to any area and click on icons to download, I start having a hard time. The icons download, but when I click on the to open, i get a white screen with the next and back arrows and nothing plays. Please assist me with this bug so that my little one can begin using it and I can give a proper review. Thanks, TheMoodyMom
  • Love it!

  • Good for learning to read

    By Kfly1234567890
    The learn to read section of the app does a really nice job of introducing the building blocks of reading with fun games around each sound type. I feel good knowing this is educational and fun!
  • No problems so far.

    Bright tunes. Colorful. Still testing it out. Nice graphics quality. Variety of activities. Reads story's aloud with highlights on word being spoken.
  • Stuck on membership screen

    By Jkarmach
    Just as other reviewer's have said. Forces you to create an account and left stuck on the screen with no way to move forward.
