When I was signing up I accidentally put in the wrong year so now it says you are ineligible for a account!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡
So I can’t even get a account FIX THIS
I quit with the trains. It just seemed never ending getting those trains in the right station. Maybe this is also a game to test your patience; if so, I’ve failed!
Still buggy, no luck logging in 1/5
I deleted app a year ago due to multiple problems and inadequate customer support. Decided to give it snother go. Downloaded on ipad. Can’t log in, password reset doesn’t work, no email link ever appears. It recognizes that i have an account because i cant create new account using same name\email combo. Nothing wrong with my email functions or server.
Now I remember why I deleted app.
I haven’t played this game in a while and getting back to playing it lets me know where my mind has gone 🤦🏾♀️
Never stopped sending me emails after I deleted it 1/5
I deleted the app because I never played it and needed the space. This was a year ago. I still get 5 emails a month! STOP SENDING ME EMAILS!
Fun games but premium is too much 3/5
Too expensive for premium
Lifetime memberships, turns into a couple months for the same $200 (on special) 1/5
BEFORE the “meat” of this review, I just want to comment on a couple of others.
I’m with the one that said they’d tried 3 times and heard nothing, but you keep getting auto reply saying they’ll be in touch in 48 hours “write reply above the line”. When you do....you get a notice saying “we’ll be in touch with 48 hours”.
2 others stated that ONLY Apple can give refunds. EVERY TIME I finally got a response, the LIADVISOR (lying advisor) told me once that I’d “requested a refund, and that it had been applied back to my card”. The next time, they said they couldn’t find which card it’d been applied too, but it had been documented that THEY had issued my refund.”
So yes.....the lie they give you is the flavor of the day.
1- 8x12 and can’t get it back
1- $60 for the year and can’t get it back.
1-ME.....LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP, I didn’t want mine back, and they swear they refunded me. Yes....that THEY refunded me, as in, “you requested a refund and we returned it on.......”. Nothing about Apple.
“WE REFUNDED THE FEES”. BUT they SAY it’s documented, but upon request for a copy of this request, refund transaction, etc.......they aren’t able to get copies, it’s just in their system, but THEY had issued a full refund. (After 6/8 months of use? I don’t think so, and they know not!)
****ok.....the meat of the review follows****
Unless you have money to throw away and not care, OR throw it away and enjoy back and forth of them saying you LIED, DON’T Pay for this app.
Use the free part, get bored quickly and move on.
The PAID part is awesome, as long as it lasts. Occasional lifetime membership offered for $200. Great deal & fun. If you miss a few weeks, couple of months and log back in....your membership is gone. They deny you ever had one and that they don’t offer lifetime. If you be one insistent that they DO, they escalate to a senior liar who says after “MUCH RESEARCH 🤮🤮🤮that they’ve located your account (even though a week ago they swore they didn’t offer it) and you HAD a lifetime account, but you asked the funds be returned.
They just don’t tell you WHERE they returned them too. NOR do they say they gave back the full amount. (Which you KNOW for $200 aid you gave the account somewhere around 6-7 months, then an extended time away and you come back to get back in the lifetime part of your membership, they are NOT going to refund it all as the “senior liadvisor” tells you they did. SUPPOSEDLY this was returned almost 4 years ago. The card never got a refund nor did I get the money, and that bank card has now been closed out. So they tell you “if you can send them the proof or receipt of purchase that they’ll be glad to reactivate your membership.
YES......reactivate your 6 month LIFETIME membership.
So unless you plan on dying in 6 months to get your lifetime membership, OR don’t mind being screwed out of $200 for a lifetime membership that they “don’t offerl, but they are able to find a record of it, (which during the same week they send an email offering the lifetime membership” 🙄)
Or, your 3rd choice is to have back and forth banter with them for over 4 months which each person has different lines, excuses, lies....whatever the sheet for the day says. And then if you still pursue it, you then get to hear the sane crap from the senior LIADVISORS. Apparently they’ve been at this long enough they can make this crap up as they go, and don’t have to rely on a daily printout. “What 💩 to tell the customer today!”
I’ll admit, they earned that job and that LIADVISOR title, because they are GOOD at it!!!
Do yourself a favor, search for more reputable “brain game” apps. There are several, and most free. Maybe have to do 2-3 to get the variety, but they are free and no hassle/lies.
**********Memarado is AWESOME*****
******As well as Memrise*********
Even if it cost a little more $, (they haven’t offered the lifetime membership yet...(but they are honest about it), great fakes, more challenging, more fun, really make you think. And when/if you contact them, they are immediately responsive, not “in 24/48 hours”. I’m shocked that Lumosity is still allowed to offer its “services”. You’d think they’d prevent an app from providing an automatic “SCREW YOU” in their fees when you purchase the game. The least honest, caring about the purchasers if any cheesy app I’ve seen. Just something to get you sucked in, take your money and lie about it being returned.
Better, more challenging games.
(Unless being lied to is your thing, then this is NOT the app to get!! You’ll be aka Ed at all the creative ways they find to lie to you, s tee you over, take your money fir a lifetime membership shdcsay they don’t offer that, yet within a week you get an e-mail where they are offering a lifetime membership. You can EASILY go to the purchase page for this...and you THINK it’s going to ge a good deal, but then take a few hours, get the lube, sure me good confine, fund your favorite position and have a note pad to make a list of the creative ways they have of lying to you, you’ll be amazed. (And well screwed by the time they do their thing!!!!!!)
Fun but... 4/5
This this game is really fun every day you get three different games you can play for free kind of.
For others not sure 5/5
A very well rounded group of exercises that help you remember things you learned years ago and for me personally, I’m disabled so I’m encouraged to do mind stimulating activities. You have a lot and I thank you.
Fun and A Trap 3/5
Lumosity games are certainly fun to play. You will spend endless minutes, or hours a day if you are like me, obsessing over a challenging game or beating your last score. But that’s the thing. It may help the brain some but it also can be a time waster. I can’t say whether it improved my cognitive functioning. Lumosity was sued for making unfounded claims. So there’s that.
Cancelling is hard. Good luck finding the “Unsubscribe” link. I managed to cancel auto renew but have not yet received an email confirmation. It should be instant- so I’m worried that I’ll be charged again. Now Lumosity certainly has no problem emailing me about games and renewing. It shouldn’t be so hard to cancel. It’s like the goal is to frustrate you so you give up or forget. But little do they know I’ve been playing their memory games and I won’t forget 😉.
Can’t play your games on my iPad...I make time to play mahjong on iPad ...relaxing but frustrating when ya near the end and it says...there’s no more plays...restart.
Nice with problems 4/5
I think this app is great but there is very limited things you can do without paying for it which is too bad. I think they should be able to do stuff a little bit more but otherwise it’s really awesome
It’s a 4+ app! 2/5
I put in my birthday 10.21.07 it said I can’t make an account! It’s 4+!!!
Poor Instructions 3/5
The instructions to many of the games are not good at all. The app is a good idea but the instructions need work.
Harder than I thought 5/5
This game is honestly challenging but fun
Great Game Help 5/5
I use this app not as often as I would like to.But I will do better for my own good. Thanks for the program it is great!!
the best....!!!💯💯 5/5
Best 👍 5/5
Luminosity is awesome!! 5/5
Love this app keeps my mind sharp!!
I get frustrated 😩 3/5
Need to get better
Lumosity is ok 4/5
By Mira Mosche
I don’t get to play the games that I want all the time and some of the games are absolute trash and I hate them, but they have some good content and their games r Dina and helpful. I wish they would ask what skills I need to practice because some of the stuff is too easy I also with that they asked what games are my favorite so I could pick. But yeah overall lumosity is fun
Not freee!!!!!! 1/5
This is suppose to be free. You play one game and have to purchase. What a joke
Best mind training 5/5
Most easy and accessible also very affordable for premium. Recommend to anyone wanting to further their mental capabilities
Great mind game! 5/5
It's good way of staying focused and sharp. I do like different games using words,colors,numbers. I wish they were more free games available😊
SCAM!!! BEAWARE!!! 1/5
They took money from me
without my permission!!!
$45.00 I would not pay even $1.00
This is not efficient at all!
Shame on you!!!
Wow OK 1/5
By cat pack
So I’m new to this app so I sign up then it say I’m cant make an account 9 years old I’m going to 4th grade so I’m mad and upset 😡
Brain’s Happy hour 5/5
These little games are like my brain’s happy hour!
I find myself looking forward to my daily 10 minutes doses.
Doesn’t work well with ipad 2/5
By Not quite enough
Installed and immediately un-installed. If I can’t sit at a table and play the game I won’t have in on my ipad. And by that I mean if it doesn’t work in landscape mode it is worthless. My keyboard holds the ipad in landscape mode. HOW the hell am I supposed to use a game if I can’t see it? I’m still trying to figure out why so many app’s on the App Store aren’t able to be used on an iPad?
Once they have your email. 1/5
By Damaged teeth
I'm being spammed by these things! I can't even "unsubscribe" and expect anything to happen!
If you don't mind the same thing: go ahead and download this.
Sham Wow 1/5
By Star Ship
In the beginning the app asks for you to click on the cognitive tasks you want to improve. I only clicked math.
I've had lumosity for a few weeks now. The only games that consistently stay unlocked and inaccessible are the math games. Coincidence? It doesn’t feel like it.
How can this be fixed?
I have hot found a way to share my wife’s premium account. Two accounts is too expensive.
My head hurts
Good app but not for 12 dollars a month 3/5
By Samantha Karasek
I really enjoy this app but the fact that premium is 11.99 a month is just too much. 5.99 or 6.99 is one thing but 11.99? No thanks. I play the free games but have honestly been playing the same ones everyday which are helpful but not the point of wanting to upgrade. I’m aware you can just pay annually (59.99) but realistically it’s more convenient to pay monthly Incase you ever want to cancel. If they lowered the monthly rate I would definitely be upgrading.
Excellent challenge 5/5
Lumosity is so helpful. The games are so much fun.
SO WORTH IT😁💕💋🤜🏾🤛🏾 5/5
By Zmoney 2471
Look I’m telling you download this game !!
This is a really good game to get your brain works and more. I’m only thirteen and my boyfriend goes on my phone saying, “ Why do you have a brain game on your phone?!😅” This is why!
1. Fun and the games aren’t boring
2. The brain game works
3. I got the PREMIUM and it’s worth my money 😂
4. You heard it from a youngster 👌🏾🤘🏾🤪
So dumb 1/5
I am tryna practice my brain stuff but me being a twelve year old it says I am not allowed to make an account, so retarded
Memory and speed 5/5
By Auntie Mariam
I have started using Lumosity 3 years. Sometimes I train regularly and sometimes I leave it for a while. I found that lumosity charges me up to score and beat the next level. But more importantly it has taught me how to organize my thoughts and plan better. So it has not been about scoring but about understanding the logical way about scoring. I find some games more interesting than others. There are games that I enjoy playing (math, language, train track, leave direction and remembering the items on the beach) but some games I simply don’t understand (eg coffee machine). My grand children (aged 7&11) play as well and they enjoy it immensely. They too started playing 3 years ago.
Fun and challenging 5/5
I am enjoying these games because each one is different. As most are simple you do have to concentrate. I recommend this app to all.
Premium Lumosity 5/5
It is AWESOME and I get to play whatever I want!!
It has in app purchases
Utterly useless 1/5
By jame falangy
This game serves no purpose. I can’t describe the stupidity of this game. It is the same everyday no new games. How is that supposed to improve your brain if you don’t learn anything. So I give this game 1 star because apple doesn’t let people give 0 stars.
Love it! 5/5
By Kat and Ewe
A friend of mine use this to recover her brain after a concussion. She said it really helped. I am using it to increase my memory and speed up my brain processes. I do believe I see a difference. Free version is a brief daily brain workout that wakes up my thinking and gets the gears going.
brain training games shouldn’t come at a cost 1/5
This app goes down all the wrong roads as meditation apps — part of it is free, but most comes at a price. These apps honestly shouldn’t cost money as they have the potential to help so many people if they didn’t.
Helps me focus but premium 4/5
The Lumosity daily workouts help me to focus just I don’t have premium and cos money to get but premium gives you 50+ more games to play but I don’t have it so it gives me Three more games for each Day and The games change every day so I get to try new games every day but I wish I Could get the premium for free but it’s $11.99monthly and $59.99 yearly but it still helps me focus a lot and it makes me focus more and remember things more and do stuff quickly
I’m upset it doesn’t work in other countries. 4/5
So I was trying to play Lumosity,I was on my friends account and they just started,so I went to log in my account to show someone how it is,but I’m in Brazil.It didn’t work,I thought hmm maybe it’s the wrong password,I tried other passwords and they didn’t work. I logged onto a different account and it still didn’t work,I was like hmm maybe I’ll make another account, (and yes I do have internet) I tried making another account and it STILL didn’t work, so creators if you are reading this please fix this.
Still New 3/5
Still new to the status of reports kinda was expecting more information?
Best Brain Game diversity out there! 5/5
By Mark Keller
This is one that I go through spurts of playing everyday...highly addictive...progressive too...I phase in & our on different games here...more games added every so often...
Mostly enjoyable games 3/5
Since I first purchased this app a couple of years ago, recommended by a friend, the company has added games- it was getting boring so I stopped playing for a while. One of the games, Star Search, is very poorly designed and uses dark colors on a dark background. It’s almost impossible to discern the differences unless you have your phone under a very bright light. Not sure it’s worth the hefty annual fee.
The app that’s too smart 1/5
By Lonster guy
They can build an app, but it will not run in landscape. Makes you wonder.why cell phone mode is ridiculous. People even make stupid videos in cell phone mode and are silly enough to post their garbage on YouTube. Why on earth is everything in portrait mode? People are too lazy?
