We’ve only had this app for a short while but it seems to only work on my most expensive smartphone. I let my daughter use my old phone to play on this app and my pathway stays on a white screen. We tried my tablet as well, same problem.
The app stopped working since the update. We have an iPad and we got to the sight word “the” on my child’s pathway and the screen just turns black and frozen. I also tried to run the app on a different iPad and iPhones. Our app is updated and so are our apple software. I have emailed support last week and still no response. I tried to access Homer through an android tablet and a desktop computer but my child’s pathway there are completely different and will just throw her off and confuse her. The app needs to be fixed for Apple devices or at least make the pathway on all devices the same. We haven’t been able to use the app for a week now.
One of the very few consistent things in my son’s life is his love for the Homer Stories app. Today I found out that you’ll be abandoning the app on which we have spent many, many $$ in subscription for him. I looked at this new app, and the navigation and UI for the Stories section is terrible - just an endless, cluttered scroll of thumbnails. This is just ridiculous and, frankly, lazy on the part of the developers. The original Stories app was thoughtfully crafted in a way that encouraged the young user to explore the various categories with voice feedback, and was presented in an engaging way. That attention to detail and obvious pride in the craft was one of the reasons I have been spending so much on the subscription. Now I get to look forward to watching my son get upset about his favorite app going away - when there is no reason whatsoever that it needed to change. I’ll never understand what possesses app developers to betray their most loyal users by “updating” apps to make them worse. How disappointing. I’m going to be looking for apps from a different developer, and will cancel my Homer subscription if we find something my son enjoys.
The game is not free. False advertising.
We love our Homer app!! However, the new update makes my speakers sound blown on some screens. Also, we would LOVE some more math please!!
Loved this review! Had my daughter engaged for hours with educational learning! Recommend for all!
The idea behind this app is great and I was excited for my kids to try it. One problem, it crashes every time I open it. I can’t even get to the ‘parent' tab to request help.
Terrible customer service. No response to emails regarding issues with the app. The app itself seems like a good idea but my child lost interest quickly (about one week). My second child’s profile will not work at all. I was billed for the entire year and used not even 2 weeks. Disappointing.
Homer Reading was a wonderful app that our 4 year old loved and was making great progress in. Unfortunately, it has been ruined for us by the switch to Learn & Grow. Now all she does is listen to the songs or play games. We would love a way to disable parts of the program or set time limits on them. Otherwise will likely stop paying for this soon since there are plenty of apps that will let her listen to songs for free.
I am a kids ok It dos not help ok dont get Ok I am helping you ok
