    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!

    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!!!!!!)

    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

    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 😉.

    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!

  • Poor Instructions

    The instructions to many of the games are not good at all. The app is a good idea but the instructions need work.
