SCIENCE BEHIND LUMOSITY
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.
IN THE NEWS
Harvard Business Review
"Designed by neuroscientists, a brain training approach such as Lumosity builds on breakthrough concepts such as neuroplasticity and fluid intelligence."
"The mini-games are fun rather than dry, making it a daily habit that never feels like a chore."
"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."
"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."
"This site offers a wide variety of games designed by neuroscientists to help keep your brain agile and to improve cognitive function."

Ehere's the competition?!
I absolutely love Lumosity... but I'm an extremely competitive person and want to see my friends high scores or BPI's at the very least. Maybe have a feature where those that would like to share can allow it to connect to facebook and then have a screen inside the app where you can scroll down and see your friends faces next to their stats, if they choose that privacy setting, kind of like CandyCrush. I'm already challenging myself to do better each day but we'd all play tons more and refer to others if there was a competitive aspect without having to actually screen shot our app and post to our FB wall annoyingly. People that don't play wouldn't care to see that clogging their feed.
I have to say this is the first time that I have been so impressed by an app that I have taken the time to rate one. This app while claiming to sharpen my brain and other important tasks that exercise it all the while enjoying myself as much if not more than other games or apps made strictly for fun. Thank you and best of luck pumping out future apps and or games with such benefits. Maybe something geared towards children, I myself have a ten year old and an 18 month old.
