HOMER Learn & Grow App

A research-based personalized reading program

When my kids request screen time, I feel better if they are on a learning app rather than play mindless games. For this reason, I’m always on the lookout for good apps that include learning while playing. I had been hearing about HOMER from friends and online, so when I got an opportunity to review the app, I decided to try it out!

Once I downloaded the app, I loved how HOMER personalized the platform for my child, who loves space and dinosaurs. After a quick quiz, HOMER adjusted questions based on my child’s learning level. The app is child-friendly, easy to use and I did not need to help my kid navigate it. 

HOMER helps build skills in reading, math, creativity, critical thinking, social-emotional learning, and much more! And most importantly, there are no ads or in-app purchases, so I do not have to constantly worry about my child being navigated outside the platform.

We also got access to free activities and printables for easy offline fun!

For the last few days, my child has been playing every day on HOMER. I love how fun and engaging learning has been. I definitely recommend the app. We have used other learning apps and have been frustrated or not been challenged enough.

Thankfully that has not been an issue with HOMER. Currently, the company has a Back to School offer, which includes a 30-day free trial + a discounted $45 annual subscription (normally $59.99/yr) that runs through September 7th. You can also buy all three learning exploration kits for an annual cost of $99.99 (regularly $209.06). With more than 1,000 games and stories for kids 2 to 8 years old, it’s totally worth it.
