Train your memory and attention. Used by over 50 million people worldwide, Lumosity creates a Personalized Training Program that challenges your brain.


Lumosity is designed by neuroscientists to train memory, attention, and more. With foundations in the study of neuroplasticity, Lumosity games have improved working core cognitive abilities in several research studies.


Harvard Business Review
"Designed by neuroscientists, a brain training approach such as Lumosity builds on breakthrough concepts such as neuroplasticity and fluid intelligence."

The Guardian
"The mini-games are fun rather than dry, making it a daily habit that never feels like a chore."

Dr. Oz
"Your body isn’t the only thing that needs a workout – your brain needs stimulation to stay in peak shape. This Oz-approved game works to improve your memory."

"The app itself is very clean, and performance is excellent."

Wall Street Journal
"The games offer a scorecard of your performance and let you follow changes in performance over time, so you can see if you're getting better or backsliding. You can also choose what skills you want to improve."

PC Mag
"I’ve found the Lumosity training fun, challenging, and—as it only takes 15 or 20 minutes a day—brief enough that it doesn’t become a time-sink."

USA Today
"This site offers a wide variety of games designed by neuroscientists to help keep your brain agile and to improve cognitive function."

    by lavendarandlilac

    This app is absolutely amazing and I'm soo so glad I downloaded it!

  • Smart app

    by Bombs brew

    Really enjoy the app and I've noticed a big difference

  • About the app


    I really like the app and it gets better and harder every time I play so its really fun. But I think there should be a NEW update I thinks that u can play ----- as much as u want so that u can unlock and play new levels,that's what would make it better. But I will give it 5⃣

  • Love it.

    by Katie Kegley

    I just finished my first day of exercises. It only took a few minutes. This seems like a great app. If you're going to spend mins/hrs on your phone.. Why not train your brain rather that mindless tap a bird around.

  • All-star app

    by Lisa Snider

    Great app for mobile devices. It's so fun and useful to be able to improve your mind thanks to Lumosity! I'm even contemplating buying a subscription.

  • Great app

    by Fire fighter wife

    This app is great. I play it everyday and I love it. Very worth gettin

  • Great App!

    by Luvdokter

    I gave this app 5 stars, but I still think there's room for improvement and hope they continue to do so. That being said...I love this app! In our world of mindless entertainment (and I love my other mindless apps, too!), it's great to have an app that works on improving my quality of life through mental health. Thanks Lumosity!

  • Great

    by TruCode

    It definitely customized to my brain function. It even skipped a couple of levels, cause I'm sure it new I wasn't ready for them. Haha. Great to play after waking up, jump starts your brain!

  • Dig it.

    by nico.bailey

    I haven't had the chance to play with this too much but so far I think it's a fun way to pass the time.

  • Love it

    by Sabrinakpyne

    This the best app is helping me alot

  • Worth trying

    by EstMer

    I don't know if it helps with brain cognition but in my opinion it helps.

  • Great app

    by Orgoneeyes

    Luminosity has been the leader in brain games and this app works great.

  • Not Sure About It

    by OneBertolucci

    The idea is great, and the effort is worth while. I analyze some of the studies but there are plenty to look at. The only problem is: the mobile apps. Many people don't have time to sit down on a compute and play the games; they may have transient lifestyles. It would be great if the games here became a bit more complex and more in number; because otherwise this app turns into a game challenge, and not a brain one.

  • Fun Game

    by Krdlmd

    Makes you think and it's fun to do! Highly recommend.

    It helps with my memory and hand eye ordination in sports; the full version is much better though; there should be more games available for the app. I highly recommend buying the full version.

  • What an awesome scam

    by Ghadjoe

    If you think this is making you smarter, you should meet my buddy the Nigerian prince who needs some help getting his money out of the country. He is happy splitting his fortune with you 50/50...

  • Finely crafted!

    by steveline60

    I play daily. I am very smart. I've seriously injured my brain which inhibited its short and mid term memory. Playing challenges all my weak spots. Since I play daily it works them out well. It is like being a professional athlete and practicing. They are all responding and getting better!

  • Nice

    by Ethvxe


  • Entertaining

    by 7/2Nancy

    by Melsvols79

    I am not sure if I am getting smarter or not but I do love playing these Mind games!! The are fun and challenging. I do recommend the creators add the ability to compare my score with the average person who plays the game. All in all great app!

  • Lumosity

    by Noah Dean

    The game is really fun and educational. Good for people trying to learn skills.

  • Lumosity

    by Dmwine

    Fun program, but it needs more games on the mobile version. Also would be nice if scores carried across devices since I'm signed in.

  • Love it

    by LeeJVee

    So glad to have this on my iPhone - makes it more likely I'll do it every day!

  • Brain tease

    by Ryoalo

    Fun game

    by ces68 doubt a really good brain much fun!

  • Great app

    by Dejuane87


  • Full access WAY TOO EXPENSIVE

    by Clarkeh35

    Excellent app but full access is ridiculously expensive, you would sell 10,000 X's more if it were a reasonable 15$ annually.

  • Muy buena

    by Viton2

    Lastima que la version sin pago sea tan limitada

  • Love it

    by Fitlobo

    Is a great app this us a must download

  • Makes you think

    by Rsalzbrun

    I just purchased this app (saw it on tv) and I figured, why not? It's exercise for your brain. I love it.

  • Great training

    by Gt4life

    Just needs more of a variety

  • Fun and challenging!

    by Toast dude

    Great app!

  • Useful? Maybe. Diverting? Definitely.

    by Berliner

    Entertaining games, nice variety. Wish you could get a lifetime family subscription, but for now the lifetime subs are just for individuals. Lumosity does a nice job of charting your progress and they continue to add games.

  • Great App, more rewarding than most video games

    by Jenafruta

    Fabulous app! Loads of fun & great brain training!


    by fiestiilaylow


  • Lumosity

    by BubbaBr3nt

    This is great it really stimulates my mind i can tell im getting smarter

  • Wow!

    by illestG35

    It gets me really really focused in what I'm doing

  • Great "brainercise

    by Future Genius

    I've always considered myself to be of average intelligence, I'm confident that with Lumosity's help, I can raise the bar to genius level!. I've only been using it for about two weeks, and each passing day just seems somehow easier. Crossword puzzles, card games and even work, all seem less challenging and so much more fun!...
