I've only played the free subscription and it is great! My short term memory has improved thanks to lumosity and the games are fun!

Warning! Don't get suckered into this site

Lumosity has an automatic renew policy and they don't let you know about the reoccurring charge! They are shameful and out of integrity. Stay away!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5):
Kids say (1):

It's no wonder that Lumosity is used by over 25 million people. Its activities are comprehensive and they make it simple to get started with a training program. Best of all, it's fun. The daily program lasts between 10-15 minutes, and goes quickly when kids are super-focused on the games (they all require some serious concentration!). Kids will love watching their skills improve, and parents will be thrilled that Lumosity's games are anything but time-wasters. Using Lumosity, kids won't just be improving game scores, but also improving brain function across the board, making things like homework and focusing in class a little easier.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
