    They need to change up these games, I get tired playing the same games over and over. I am not going to upgrade to premium until they do.

  • Points

    The points indicated at the end of each game would mean more to me if it were, for example, 36500 OUT OF 36800 points instead of just a point number.
  • It won't help, but it's fun to play

    The free version allows you to randomly work on 3 skills per day, but you will never get any feedback on your skills and what it all means unless you pay. If you want to increase certain skills on a routine basis it is not possible since you cannot choose. In addition, I asked a psychologist about what experts think of Lumosity and she informed me that her colleagues felt it has no real value, although she didn't say how many she'd asked. Reviews are available on: - Psyberguide states these drawbacks: skills learned may have less value in the real world, less opportunity for systematic skill building, really needs a trained therapist for best results, no clinical data for those with severe cognitive impairment, and less useful than other programs. - Fortune wrote an article in 2017 that says brain games don't work, and Lumosity had to pay the FTC $2 million last year due to unsubstantiated claims, and stated that the Journal of Neuroscience reported that Lumosity caused no improvements in cognitive functioning or decision making. - Quora comes to similar conclusions. - The NYT also comes to similar conclusions. So, have fun but don't hope for much in the way of results.

    I have been a premium member of Lumosity since 2012. Love the variety of games to keep my brain active and thinking; while also enjoying the smooth transition from mobile to mac (ios to os x) platforms keeping things interesting but familiar without the slightest chance of mundaneness.

    I love the app but the only thing that I would like to change is to have a free week or even month of premium to see if that’s really what I would like to invest in. But I love the rest of the app.

    My husband bought the app again. I play every day many times a day. This game will improve your way of thinking. I love all the games trains I’m on level 13 and I need 6 trains to make it to 14 level. I love to play only this I think better at problem solving. Is a super fun way to keep your brain growing. Thank you Lumosity you are the best!
  • Getting the animals home

    By Lenenay
    It's too slow. I tap the animal and have to tap the house multiple times before the vehicle can get the animal to the house, which most of the time it doesn't l, which is really frustrating. The rest of the games are excellent!
