  • No free like the advertising

    By Me123456R
    They say it’s a free app but when you get it it requires you to pay $7.99/month. It’s only a free trial if you sign up. I don’t like the dishonesty
  • Totally worth it!

    By a fan of Caroline!!
    The app and website are one of the coolest reading platforms I’ve seen! I love that kids can not only learn HOW to read, but practice fluency and become better readers as they grow! The games and fun features make it so easy for kids, that they hardly realize they are learning in the process.
  • I just wasted $79

    By NC2018
    When we did the trial a while back, there was a learn to read mode that really helped my child. A couple months later I purchased a year subscription thinking that would still be there. It was there for a day or so, until what I assumed was an app update that now is completely different and useless. Now my child is bored picking out the color blue and other stuff way below her learning level. And no more reading aside for having stories read to her. She is bored now and wants to know where the words went. Now I appear to be stuck with a year of this ridiculously useless app as it looks like they don’t issue refunds. Has I known the updates would be this bad (and not including activities advertised in the app screenshots that are shared), I would have paid a year upfront.
  • Love it so far

    By 2Kittens love me
    My older daughter is dyslexic and her teacher noticed that she was struggling to have confidence with reading. Came across this on Pinterest one day and decided to try it. We have only been using the free trial for a few weeks and we love it!! My younger daughter is addicted to it right now. She is using the preschool pathway and loves everything. My older daughter is on the growing reader pathway and is gaining confidence, even if she is sometimes bored (it’s geared more towards younger children and she’s 8). I run a very small prekindergarten for about 6 of my friends kids. Our neighbor is incredibly bright for her age (newly 5 and can read chapter books) so I made her and her little brother profiles. However, it has her on the pre-k pathway and she says that it is really easy. Her brother is only 2 and is on the same pathway as my youngest(3). I remember that when I made my first profile, I gave me the option to chose another profile for my older daughter but I can’t do that now. Is their anyway that I can chose the pathway I think they should be on? Overall, this is a really lovely app for any child who wants to have an educational boost. Totally recommend!!!!
  • Access Learn to read

    By Netara J.
    I love the app. I just need help accessing the learn to read section for 3 of my children on my iPad. Thanks.
  • Great Application

    By YelloMello13
    My kids love the stories and activities. I’m finally glad there is something that focuses on just reading.
  • Loved but crashes now

    By garbagenickname
    My 4 year old loves this app. But after the update it crashes and won't open. She's pretty upset about it.
  • Crashing on startup

    By Zscloset
    We can’t get the app to run on either the iPhone or the iPad. I’ve contacted support and are hopeful that they get it corrected. The Homer app is a great tool for us which is why we pay for it. We will be canceling soon if the crashing is not resolved.
  • Unsatisfactory

    By Rainjuicer
    I paid for this app for a few months always with hopes of it working. It would always freeze during the personalization part and never got to the actual program.
  • Scam

    By Ayesha Saeed Haq
    App looks like a scam, have been trying to cancel my member ship but the app is stuck since morning.
