App Reviews

  • Free trial still charged me

    By MandyPalhofski
    It chose to do the free trial but $8.47 was taken out of my bank account. Thanks for the “free trial” Otherwise my child does enjoy the app now that i am forced to pay for it for this month, i will see how it does for this month.
  • So many glitches

    By Jenn shao
    I wanted to love this app. Luckily i tried the limited trial version before putting in my credit card info for the 30 day version with recurring payments. There are so many glitches and it is only our 3rd time (2nd day) trying it out. First it forgot where he was along the pathway. Then he kept playing the same thing and would not go to new activity. I restarted the app and it finally remembered where he was on the pathway, but it will NOT let him do the next activity (it was light up and had a play symbol). It was glitching and you can’t press play. It was very frustrating for me as an adult, even more frustrating for a 4 year old. Totally not worth $8/month if it glitches like this. I wasn’t even sure i wanted to pay $8/month for an app in the first place.
  • Doesn't work

    By Me becka
    I've been paying for it. I liked it. Then suddenly it acts as if I'm on a feee trial and bumps me off. Disappointed.
  • It was great

    By krisja23
    Since the last update , it no longer moves from space to space on the pathway. It’s now a complete waste of money, which is too bad since the reading part was good. We will be canceling.
  • Excellent

    By rinan88
    I downloaded this app after reading about it on Understood.org. My son was struggling with phonics in a program at school that is largely auditory based. This app offers a multi-sensory approach to learning phonics and phonetics. My son enjoys it. We have only been using it for a couple of weeks so I cannot comment on outcomes at this point but I have no hesitation recommending this app. Let me also say that we also have ABC Mouse and I would recommend Homer over that program.
  • Won’t stop charging after cancellation

    By Jubeironin
    I liked this app, but we didn’t use it enough to justify paying $8 a month. I removed it through my iPhone Apple ID, but they continued charging our account. I then re-downloaded the app and cancelled through the app - but they continued charging me. I emailed their customer service but got no response - and another charge this month. The app is alright, but I would not recommend giving them account info.
  • Deleting the app is not enough

    By Any_given_name
    Please be cautious when you try to stop subscription. I deleted the app from my phone long time ago, and they still charged my account. Sikply don’t download it in the first place
  • The app is impressive but...

    By fearlessaura
    The app is helpful with letter recognition and writing letters, putting events in order to know what happens first to last. I keep running into the problem when it’s time to level up for my 3 year old pathway the app is stuck she’s unable to move toward to next letter to learn. I uninstalled reinstalled app but the problem persists.
  • It’s bad

    It’s bad
  • Terrible app

    By unsatisfied 817
    Don’t waste your money. This app takes about 15 minutes to open and will not even start. I uninstalled the application the second day. Thought that would unsubscribe myself bc there were no unsubscribe option only to find out that I was charged a few days ago. Trying to get my refund but no reply yet.
