    This is a scam - please DO NOT GET CAUGHT. Did the free trial over a year ago. It didn't work properly. Sent a message through their app telling them it wasn't working. Got no reply. Thought I had cancelled the free trial (it is very unclear on the app) and deleted the app. A little while later I was billed£59.99 for something I no longer had. I had to search for an email contact for them - not easy! Told them what had happened and that I wanted my money refunding please. The response was that they wanted a copy of my initial messages - very convenient as I had sent it through THEIR app, which I no longer had! Today I have been charged another £59.99 for an app that I have never used! STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY - PLEASE
  • Good app

    This is helping an adult with a learning disability to learn to read in a fun way. The only real criticism is that the the words in some of the games appear in the same position e.g. The game with the bananas.
  • Best phonics app

    I have used it for almost six months with my four years daughter and the results are amazing. Her phonics have significantly improved and her blending is amazing. The best app ever for learning phonics with fun and games.

    Signed up to the trial, could never get the app to actually do anything beyond set up. I thought I had cancelled the subscription and deleted the app as it was not fit for purpose only to discover I have been billed for the full app a month later...not happy!

    Requires an ongoing subscription. Downloaded to find I had a "one month free trial" IF I signed up with my Apple ID.
  • Engaging and enlightening

    Having looked at other educational apps for my four year-old daughter, this one seemed the most promising. Despite some functional issues at the outset the app soon ran as expected after dealing with the support team who were very helpful and friendly (thank you Fanny) and I am pleased to say that my daughter uses it daily while making real and lasting progress with her reading development. Although I am still testing the app within the terms of the 30-day free trial, I already see myself commiting to a full purchase when the time comes. Well done everyone and keep up the good work!

    We've been using this app as part of our boy's reading practice, I like the way the exercises are planned out.

    Download, sign up and it just gets stuck. Saying something worrying about how you can cancel your account hassle free anytime. Kind of makes you think you have signed in and agreed to the terms and conditions and now it's frozen? You start to wonder what you have just signed up for and are you being charged for this account? After a number of attempts to get into the app, in the end I gave up and deleted it. Will be keeping my eye on my account to make sure I'm not being charged for the account I set up on the app.
  • Very helpful reading app!

    As a Montessori teacher with 16 years teaching experience, I would recommend Homer to all my friends who are teachers or they have children are learning phonics and reading. It's a very helpful and well designed app. It would help the children learn to read step by step.
