User Reviews for Lumosity: Brain Training


I have lost my job due to COVID-19 and Lumosity was a great escape for me and helped me expand my brain level and helped me be calm despite losing my job. It will also probably help me get a new job as my IQ has increased by A LOT and I got to say thank you to Lumosity for that. But here’s the thing, this app and the Premium is a CHEAT. I wanted to try Premium for two weeks so I bought the free trial and realized that I didn’t like it that much. It literally said cancel at any time as long as you cancel it 24 hours before and I literally cancelled it a day after I bought it. Even when I cancelled it, the subscription isn’t going away and I’m going to continue getting payed. Literally a day later, I got terminated from my job. I already have a lot to stress about right now and this is adding on to my stress. How am I supposed to pay for a mind training game when I can’t even pay for my bills on time? Now, I know this was super long, so let me summarize. The lesson learned is DON’T FALL FOR THE FREE TRIAL. These people have probably teamed up with Apple to earn money and make everyone who purchased the free trial broke.

Recovery from Brain Injury

My doctor recommended brain games after I was diagnosed with a brain stem injury after getting hit by an 18 wheeler. I have lost 11 points off my IQ (I explained it felt like 10), and then when he should me my current IQ, I was like wow, it wasn’t 10 it was 11! Can’t make that up. He suggested Sudoku, crossword puzzles, etc., and the battery of exercises in his office. However I also see sustained injuries which required two surgeries and make writing very difficult. I feel so blessed to have found this app for reinforcement, redevelopment and further development. I am new here but, I have realized positive results in two weeks. The diagnostic tool that measures improvement, or lack there of, is a great motivator as well. Thank you guys, this is exactly what I needed, and more cost-effective than seeing the neuropsychologist twice a week... the savings in gas, aggravation in traffic, etc. So it paid for itself in a week! So, keep those games coming! My favorites are the Road Race and the math problems!

I don’t write reviews, ever, but I NEED this off my chest. I saw this app on some commercial on a game I play and thought it would be fun. It would help me rewind, make my brain work faster I guess, and, overall, rework my brain with its speed, attention and math, just like it was advertised. I downloaded, set up an account, went through the tests only to discover that Lumosity only worked well if you spent MONEY. You only get 3 games with the free version, can’t do the math portion and it won’t track you as a person. It’s horrible! Do not recommend! I’m only giving this two stars because if you’re not like me, and have money to spend on useless things like this, it might be worth your time. But it’s not worth mine and anyone who is just looking for a nice app to relax playing and learn a bit at the same time. My recommendations? Add a few more aspects to the FREE mode. Here’s one way: have half the games unlocked, the other locked for premium. Example: if you have 50 games, 25 of could be for free, and the 25 have to unlocked by paying. And don’t leave one option out, like you did with the math games. Have at least one. Also, add a tracking mechanism to the free one that is set up individually, and add a more highly functional one to the premium aspect. I don’t care honestly, just make it more than 3 games so I don’t get burnt out in 2 minutes and maybe this game would be worth it, because right now, it’s really not.

Attrition vs Quality - which should inspire a purchase?

The free version only allows you to play 3 recommended games per day. While these games are fun and slightly challenging at first, they start to repeat very quickly, and I found myself groaning, “oh no, not this again!”Unlike other brain games out there, I didn’t get a sense of progress. There were no achievements or rewards. Moreover, I was unable to train in any specific categories. This likely isn’t true if I were using the paid version, but how do I know for sure?! You gotta give me a taste, man!Nearly every feature and a plethora of over 50 games are locked behind a pay wall. A wall which I was never inspired to climb. I’ve always been one to pay/support apps I enjoy, but sadly, this one seemed more nettlesome than fun or scientific or educational. It left me asking, “why is this so popular?” and thinking, “there are way more rewarding apps of this caliber which warrant my money because they made me say ‘give me more’ without giving me almost nothing.”

Top game to improve your mind @ any age

You have everything to gain and nothing to lose in using their excellent games over any other brand of brain trainers. Try it, you will be glad you did when you see for yourself the difference it makes in remembering and doing everyday tasks. Like remembering names... yes it helps. Give it three weeks and you will see a change whatever your age. I usually play the FREE games rather than purchasing it. The following is my only reason. The serious problem I have with the game is how you have to buy it through a second party, not directly from Lumosity. If your email is stolen that is linked to the your game, then your game is gone too. It’s happened to me. This is what happens when you use iTunes and I’ve NEVER gotten my money back from iTunes, never. If you could you could get the refund you’d be able to apply it to a new email that is yours. That is something they could change in iTunes by linking your game to two emails and a phone number that are each able to be changed. This happens when you must change your Apple ID as I’ve had to more than once. Presently iTunes can link your library of iBooks to two emails and I believe you may edit your linked emails by adding in a new second email, if one is stolen. Why not do that same safety with your games you buy with iTunes? I’d buy more games, if they did this so I had more security for my purchase.

I really enjoy the brain-training games. They are challenging and fun. I especially like the mindfulness series. I am at a time in my life where it has been brought to my attention that for my whole adult life, I have been negligent of others and their feelings. Not quite aware of my own other than hurt that someone may cause me, whether the hurt was truly intended or not. These exercises are helping my become more aware with what I’m feeling, both positive and negative and how those feelings can effect how I react towards others. I’m hoping that this will especially benefit my marriage. I am married to a beautiful and kind woman who I have all but completely shut out. I know that It’s because of a perceived “attack” by her on my character (which is largely flawed). She did not attack me, she was merely pointing out how what I was feeling towards her allowed me to mistreat her. I denied it and continued to do so. Six years later I have not changed and she has continued to suffer. My hopes is these exercises will assist me in finding that balanced place between caring for me and also her and our marriage. Thank you.

An exercise for improving your cognitive skills

I have been using this app for the last 400+ days continuously and I have seen marked improvement in my cognitive index. I am running 71 and started forgetting things, probably an early sign of dementia, which is evident when I play working / short term memory games. Since I started plying the games, I have improved on my memory but it has not reached above 95 percentile so far of my age group. Deficiencies in various cognitive abilities can be noticed earlier through this game and they can be improved through continuous workout. Although I might have played for more than 3 years but Lumosity keeps track of continuous play only meaning if you did not play fir a day, it starts counting from 1 again. There could be situations when one is not able to do the full exercise one day due to illness or traveling which should not make the count to restart. Overall this is the only exercise I do as soon as I get up and before starting my day.

The Train Game Haunts Me

When I first opened the app, I was prompted to play the train game. It was slightly challenging the first several levels, but I rather enjoyed the test of my attention span. After the first two days, I got stuck on a levels 10-11 and out of frustration I deleted the app knowing I wouldn’t pay for the subscription. I settled for leaving the game at that level. However, the next day I found myself bored and wondered if perhaps I could surpass to the next level. My trial was not over so I redownloaded the app and was able to get to level 12. Then suddenly I was back where I started, but just one level higher. I convinced myself to just be rid of the taunting app as I began to believe I would need to be engineered like a computer to beat level 12. When I was bored once more the next day, I did it all over again: redownloaded, moved up a level, could not beat the newest level, the. deleted the app. Today was the third time I did this obsessive dance within the last week. I have been stuck on level 13 out of 14 for the last two days and my trial is up. I refuse to pay for the subscription as I wholly believe I am addicted to this dreadful train game. I must walk away, or else it will consume my every waking moment. Good bye train game. Oh, how I wish I made it to the very end but alas I am only a human and cannot operate like a computer. *weeps loudly

I can feel my brain working

I gave Lumosity a try because I was having some memory issues. I play games like solitaire frequently, but don’t really feel like I’m exercising my brain. I could almost feel the cogs turning when I started up Lumosity. I’m in the middle of the premium upgrade trial right now, and although I love having the unlimited workouts, I probably won’t subscribe due to the fact that my only device is my iPhone 6. It’s difficult sometimes to hit the correct answers/letters on time on such a small device, and I feel like I would score higher if I had a bigger screen. If you have an iPad, go for the premium! The only complaint I have is that, when it gives you your scores at the end of each game, it doesn’t take the higher levels achieved into consideration. In other words, it appears I did a lot better when just starting out because of course it was easier to fill more coffee cups, solve more math problems, etc, at the lower level. It’s kind of discouraging in that way. But that being said, I love Lumosity. I feel it really helps. Just don’t let the scores get you down!

Terrible customer support

I’ve been automatically billed for a monthly Lumosity subscription for close to 9 months, but each time I’ve tried to use the app, I’m locked out of the premium content *that I have been paying for*, and shown a screen giving me the option of signing up for a premium membership. Absolutely frustrating. After several attempts, I was able to get in touch with a Lumosity customer service rep whom I sent screenshots of my billing statements. The rep said I hadn’t been a subscriber according to their system since May 2018, and that Apple, rather than Lumosity, was in charge of handling refunds. Alright, that doesn’t solve the problem of the app not working as it should, but if I can get a refund for the months I haven’t had access to the app (since May 2018), I could be ok with that. I contact apple, and the maximum refund they offer is for a single month’s charge. Oh also, according to Apple, I still had an active subscription, so then the rep James at Lumosity not only failed to fix my issue of the app not unlocking content I had paid for, he gave incorrect information about my subscription status, and furthermore, didn’t seem interested in actually helping me resolve my issue. So ~$12 x 8 down the drain, and neither Lumosity nor Apple will take responsibility, it seems.
