    If you are a fan of games which give your intellect a challenge rather than your thumb reflexes, then you might be pleased by this news. Lumosity is a popular brain straining/training app which has been exclusive to iOS devices... until now.

    The game/app just came to Android, and while the app is free, the full experience is a subscription based service which is $11.95 per month. While this price might be considered expensive by mobile app standards, what you get for your money is an ever evolving challenge to your synapses. The game boasts over 60 Million users around the globe, and was “designed by neuroscientists to train memory, attention and more”.

    What do you think? Is it worth checking out or are you skeptical?

    Here's a quote with a full Google Play Description (followed by the Play Store Link):

    By the way for anyone who is interested, I found a coupon on Retailmenot.com for Lumosity. I got my wife and I an account paid in full for 2 years for only $80. So I would check that site often if you are interested, the coupons come up all the time.

    The trainings value can be seen as both real or perceived depending on who you talk to or what you believe. Personally, I think it is a bit more repetition training that improves your score, but still it is nice to do the games and work the different areas of the brain on a daily basis.

    I'll train your brain for free: "Don't pay $12 a month for a game."
    There, you're smarter already.

    So even if you pay the subscription there are only 5 mobile games? Granted you get access to the 45 online games as well but 5 isn't that many for an app...
