This is one of the few things I do in my life that’s just for me. It’s entertainment, education, and personal growth, all in one.
I like Luminary a lot I think it is a very good podcast app. I love listening to podcast stories to fall asleep but also like being able to pick up at the same episode and rewind a little. The sleep timer doesn’t have a lot of options though which I think is a major downfall. A custom option on the sleep timer would be great but I would be happy with a 15 AND 20 minute timer.
Wow what a great deal. I love listening to twice the amount of ads for a service I paid $35 for! The only good podcast on here is Spooked. I wish I could have directly given Spooked $35 instead for all their episodes rather than subscribe to this app.
They also drop the price periodically, idk why but since I’ve been a member they have dropped the price. By atleast 3 bucks.
I’ve reached out to support over 2 months now and no one can figure out why when I pause an episode and go to resume it, the app has to reset and reload the episode as if I never had the app open. Really frustrating.
Love every episode. If you have an interest of the other side this is for you.
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.
Silly that this still doesn’t have CarPlay support.
History on Fire brought me here. The app seems to work the way it should.
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.
