Review Lumosity

Vlad Popa
8.3Excellent
Interesting mini-games, no ads
Requires a subscription for all the features
Lumosity for Android is a nifty little app that advertises improving your brain power. It does this by generating a daily workout consisting of tiny brain teasing games.
After initially selecting what parts of your brain functions you want to improve, the app will pick which games are suited to your needs and instruct you in playing them, suggesting you do so about 3-5 days per week in order to get the best results. A short description is offered before every mini-game, containing useful information, such as: how to play and what it hopes to achieve. For example Lost in Migration, a nice little mini-game in which you are presented with a flock of birds on a sky background and must swipe in the direction the middle bird is pointing while ignoring the rest of the flock, hopes to improve your attention and focus on the goal while teaching your brain to ignore unnecessary distractions.
The interface feels really well put together. It works fluidly and responds quickly. The only downside i could find was that a subscription must be set up in order to take full advantage of every feature, such as comparing your scores, or LPI as the app calls it, to other users.
Overall it’s hard to say whether Lumosity actually improved my mental capacities, but the games are nice little time wasters which do feel like they test your brain power. It’s nice that after performing your daily workout you can just play the mini-games for the heck of it.

I have the app on my phone so whenever I follow the QR code to download the app on my Kindle Fire it tells me that it is already downloaded. Am I missing something?

Yes, for a start, you'll need to install from the amazon app store on your kindle fire... the easiest way to do this is probably just to search for it in your kindle's app store;

My sister, who is disabled, is trying to login to Luminosity on her Kindle. I signed her up for it on my computer. She can't seem to login

I haven't used this myself, but let's see... so you've got a log in form on the kindle right, but the password you set up on your PC isn't logging for you? Have you paid a subscription for it? Can you just make another account in the app itself? You might just need to email them on this one info@lumosity.com
