  • Came for the content, stayed for the functionality Jan 29, 2021

    By cool.as.a.mule
    I'm a hardcore member of the Rapapack so as soon as I got word that Michael Rapaport was moving his podcast over to Luminary, I signed up. For a long time I only had 3 podcasts I listened to on Luminary. The recent change to Apple Podcasts was the straw that broke the camel's back though. I couldn't take it for long. I switched all my podcasts over to Luminary where it isn't confusing to distinguish between what I've already listened to and what is new to me. I understand they have a lot of original content but I'm busy enough keeping up with the shows I already enjoy...I like this app even without having heard the original content. I love being able to customize the home screen of My Shows. I've got everything in groupings that are pleasing to me. There hasn't been a show I've looked up and wasn't able to find on Luminary so far. I guess my only complaint would be that the home page pushes the original shows. I'd love to be able to exclude certain things. I don't want to see Russell Brand's face every time I open Luminary. Unless some drastic change bums me out, I'm planning on keeping Luminary for the long haul.
  • Spooked Oct 28, 2020

    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.

    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.

    Amazing app and great content.
  • Masterful Audio Production, but App Needs Improvement Oct 16, 2020

    By JoJo Tom 96
    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.
  • Fantastic app Apr 14, 2020

    By marksroon
    This app is fantastic, and has improved light years over the last year or so. I love the smooth flow, the aesthetics, and usability. I’m not currently a paying member, but this app and the content are so good, I’ll be signing up soon for sure. Keep up the great work, I love the improvements!

  • Needs better sleep timer Jan 14, 2021

    By Jkbfes
    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.

    Downloaded after listening to a few Russell Brand videos on youtube, but after I downloaded the app, I realized that there's a Lena Dunham podcast on here. I'm not comfortable supporting someone who admitted to sexually abusing children, so uninstalled the app.
  • Really wanted to enjoy it... Jun 1, 2020

    By Katie Hummel
    I hate this app. As a podcast lover I really wanted to like it bc the regular podcast app has flaws but after using and (paying) for luminary I like that one better. My main complaints. 1. Every time I open the app it plays the same Lena Dunham podcast that I never finished months ago without me even clicking on it. And it takes a couple minutes for me to click off. 2. If you have to return to a podcast you didn’t finish it takes forever to load or sometimes doesn’t save the correct spot. 3. Doesn’t show correctly on the home page new episodes of podcasts you follow. Which is the entire reason of following a podcast. 4. And this is my biggest annoyance with this app. IT DOESNT PAUSE WHEN MY MAPS IS GIVING DIRECTIONS! Which makes me miss parts of the podcast and also is just super freaking annoying. If Guys We F***d ever goes off Luminary I am definitely cancelling my subscription.
  • Why support an app that memory-holes its own premium content? Mar 27, 2021

    By Tom Hanks Is Bela Lugosi
    The beauty of podcasting is its open nature: make something, release it to the world. That’s how I discovered A Very Fatal Murder years after its release. Terrific, terrific stuff. Season 1 was released broadly, but season 2? A Luminary exclusive. Alright, I thought. What the heck. Worth tossing some money Luminary’s way to get more of this fantastic show. Only... whoops! Luminary has seemingly wiped season 2 from existence. Why? Nobody online will say. One minute, presumably, it was there, and now... who knows? Thank god Luminary didn’t produce season 1 too, or you wouldn’t be able to listen to that either. Fortunately for you, my friend, season 1 can be listened to for the better-than-Luminary price of absolutely free. One star, because the app LITERALLY could not do the single thing I downloaded it to do. Worthless. If you want a good podcasting app, by the way, I highly recommend Overcast.

  • Mar 6, 2021

    By Peter Stevens
    I've only tried the history programmes but being used to BBC radio I have so far found these lack quality and are light in content. Unfortunately the delivery is not stimulating and has an air of slightly sensationalised story-telling rather than researched analysis. This is not a comment for all programmes of course. Tried The Blitz but it played British Vilains instead. Seems to need quality control. Still has Gov. Covid warning on one programme which is out of date and you can't skip it.
  • Disappointing Aug 11, 2020

    By kaitlinnie
    Crashes frequently, often unable to play episodes and when I contacted them about it multiple times and was ignored or told “we don’t know why that happens sorry” with no resolution. Search function is not good comparable to other podcast apps, it makes it difficult to search on a subject. Some functions are randomly unavailable like right now “play next” does not work. Embarrassed I paid for this honestly! The Free version of Stitcher is better than this and that’s saying something
  • MANY Interface issues Feb 6, 2021

    By tzulu
    The most recent issue is 175 listings of one podcast under the “your latest episodes” section - and nothing else. A long standing issue is the inability to push to an earlier part of a podcast — the only option is to tap the :15 sec rewind button over and over and over and over and over and over.... There are better podcast options that are free.
  • Couldn’t even start listening so deleting Nov 13, 2020

    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. Dec 3, 2020

    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.
  • It's been months... Jun 18, 2020

    By mrenduch
    At this point they clearly don't have any interest in actually developing an app that is at all usable. How do you have "premium" podcast app that doesn't have CarPlay support? Why not just give up and allow people to list to your original shows on the app of their choice like Wondery+ does? I would gladly have paid for this service of I could do that.

  • App is okay, podcasts are great! Apr 26, 2021

    By a name 123 happy?
    As the title suggest the app could use some tweaks and improvements. The search feature is not quite accurate and crashes a lot. I have had issues with downloading content and downloads in general being unplayable at times. Other than that the content is great. I love the wide variety of selections and the HOME page is done very well.
  • Compelling content Jun 15, 2020

    By BBG7972
    Great content - I look forward to finding net shows. My only complaint is the app could benefit from a bit of a UX refresh. When I find a new shows, it's hard for me to find the whole show and all the episodes to choose from without extra steps which I see as unnecessary.
  • No Ads Please - I Just Paid Premium Price Sep 16, 2020

    By HH1984!
    I am a super fan of the podcast Spooked. It’s 100% why I subscribed. Glynn Washington is amazing. 🙌 But after paying $30+ dollars…Please don’t make me listen to advertising. I’m paying premium for premium. That is all. 👍😎
  • Great original programming!!! Sep 28, 2020

  • Spooked brought me Nov 23, 2020

    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.
  • Ok but constantly crashes Apr 20, 2021

    By aliigreg
    Overall the app is alright. They have a pretty interesting selection of podcasts, however, it’s hard to listen to a complete episode when the app is constantly crashing. Each time the app updates I hope it’s fixed but it continues to happen.
  • Luminary is Slooooowminary Apr 17, 2020

    By Farkaholic
    For some reason, it takes FOREVER for episodes to load up and play, and most times they start over rather than picking up where I left off. Frustrating. Other than that, the content is great and it’s pretty user friendly.

  • WatchOS and CarPlay Apps Would be Nice Oct 20, 2020

    By matwlev
    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.

  • Like the service not the app Oct 24, 2020

    By Mrs & Mrs Bickerson
    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.
  • Still pretty sucky after a year. Oct 3, 2020

  • Tried to Use for All Podcasts. . . Dec 24, 2019

    By Jes_18402
    I have been patient and fixing Luminary a try, even sending their support some suggestions and bugs, as I’ve had downloaded since launch. Yet, the most annoying bugs remain, making it impossible to turn to this app for all podcast listening. I end up only begrudgingly using it for the podcast that brought me to the premium platform and being frustrated with the bugs even using it to only listen to one show a week. Every time I open the app it has no idea what I last listened to, it continually plays a podcast I do not subscribe to and literally only clicked on one time to read a description. Despite this, every time I open the app there’s the latest episode of this podcast playing automatically. Meanwhile for the podcast I came to Luminary to get, I have to search or find on the home page or choose my shows and scroll through content to find. It is not a viable option for all my podcasts until the minor annoying bugs and poor interface areas are fixed. Until then, I’ll keep it only as long as my fave podcast remains there.

    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. Dec 3, 2020

    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.
  • Paid Service with twice the ads! Dec 23, 2020

    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.
  • Charging Account for No Subscription! Nov 18, 2020

    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!
  • Glitchy playback and downloads Feb 17, 2021

    So sad that Hear to Slay is trapped inside this glitchy garbage app. Would totally subscribe to a Patreon for that show alone just to avoid Luminary. The downloads and playback just don’t work. Pretty annoying to have to pay for a service that doesn’t even work.
  • Glitch that no one can figure out Dec 18, 2020

    By kamllmak
    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.
