  • Spooked brought me

    By Convo wa 3yo
    I have the app for Spooked and love that pod. The app itself glitches out, stops playing or closes. I have to go back in, re-find the show to get it started again. A bit frustrating when on long drives and it stops playing. I use the app a ton, flipping between apple podcasts and this one. If it could stop crashing out, I would use it primarily.
  • Charging Account for No Subscription!

    By BrightEyedLeo
    I am being charged $4.30 for a subscription that I cancelled months ago. It says that I am currently on a “free” subscription, and I am not using this app at all anymore. I need someone to figure this out because I should NOT be being charged for ANYTHING!
  • Terrible app

    By Damnit Mamott
    Trying to subscribe to listen to spooked, signing up for subscription, but the only button that works on the page is “no thanks, not interested.” I guess they literally don’t want my money
  • I’m hooked on the Spooked podcast!

    By iloveme1234
    I subscribed because I wanted to hear the episodes on Spooked that I cannot hear anywhere else but Luminary. I’m having a great time catching up on those episodes this evening! Thank you!
  • Couldn’t even start listening so deleting

    By AnnettieB
    I am such a fan of one podcast (Spooked) that I finally relented and attempted to download this app as it has exclusive episodes. This app makes you sign up. Fine. Not doing Facebook, so options are Google (no), email or Apple. Tried email but the keyboard just doesn’t show for the password entry. Fine, tried Apple, but that somehow routed me to change my Apple password. Ugh I don’t think so. F this app deleting after downloading.
  • Not worth it.

    By Dimitri1177
    App itself is decent. Nothing special. It doesn’t connect to google home speakers like other apps do. That’s a major con for me. Overwhelming majority of content is stuff that’s free and can be accessed on other better apps. The amount of original content is minimal. Not all of it is even original. It’s stuff that already existed but is now exclusive to luminary. For most, there may be 1 or 2 originals that interest you, if any. $5 isn’t a lot but I just don’t see it as a good value. I mean think about it. Netflix is $10 and has a ridiculous amount of original content that costs a fortune to produce. I’m willing to bet all these originals combined don’t cost as much to produce as 1 episode of stranger things. .
  • Bad quality

    By kamllmak
    I listen to podcasts between tasks at work. Unlike the Apple Podcast app that allows you to tap your screen without unlocking and resume an episode, the luminary app makes you unlock the phone to resume and episode. And then sometimes it doesn’t even keep your place in the episode. Many glitches and errors.
  • Need more features

    By DejaDrewit
    I really really wish i can sort my episodes better. 1. If an episode is already played, I don’t even want to see it on the list. Yet it’s still there and keeps randomly playing old episodes 2. I want to sort and see only luminary episodes and not the ones from the Podcast app because I already listened to all those. It’s frustrating to have to keep listening to every episode only to realize you already heard it then have to manually mark it as played and then keep going down the list but the old played episodes still show on the list.
  • Spooked

    By Krystle Menter
    I am obsessed with all of the spooked stories. Listening to stories while working everyday has become an addiction at this point. The only thing that I can come up with that would make It better would be to have some sort of system identifying if a particular episode is on the free subscription on the Apple podcast app- just so I don’t have to listen to half of the episode before realizing I’ve already heard It.
  • Not ad free

    By QuitTakingMyNicknamesMan!
    Having an ad at the top of the episode is not ad free...
