Spooked

5
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

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

Like the service not the app

2
The app isn’t great. I got it to listen to one podcast in particular. It’s hard to move from one episode to the next and I’m constantly trying to figure out what I’ve already listened to if I didn’t finish it all the way. Doesn’t appear as played.

WatchOS and CarPlay Apps Would be Nice

3
The app is fine. I don’t like using it as much as the iOS Podcasts app, but it’s the only way to listen to Spooked! (my favorite podcast). My biggest issue is that there is no WatchOS or CarPlay app, so I can only listen when I’m using my phone or laptop.

Masterful Audio Production, but App Needs Improvement

3
After listening to several original podcasts including British Villains, Anthem: Homunculus, and Spooked; I am blown away by the outstanding audio production quality and content. However, I’ve experienced some streaming interruptions when my phone automatically locks itself or the app just randomly crashes. I really believe Luminary is a high-quality and groundbreaking service for the podcast and audio drama industry, but I hope the app will improve enough to overcome the crashes. When that time comes, Luminary will have a perfect 5-star app.

There might be some exclusives, but why I’m I being charged for some podcasts I can listen to on another app for free.

Can’t Stop

Amazing entertainment- I can’t stop listening. There is something for everyone!
By Jo Diddie

Still pretty sucky after a year.

2
Content still great, must be spending money on content, not app maintenance. Glitchy, crashes frequently, real problematic when outside of cell service or WiFi, even on supposedly downloaded podcasts.
