FESTICKET Traveller Guide



  • Go out of business

    By jmw9900
    That is all. Stop paywalling my favorite shows.
  • Great content

    By arnbar123
    Love the premium content on this app. David Axelrod, Trevor Noah, and many other great shows.
  • How to curate?

    By LaLeona122
    I love the content, I went there to follow The Bright Sessions and Spooked (note to Luminary - I would also have come to you just to follow “Ghosts In the Burb”, you might consider pursuing Liz Sower, she’s an amazing talent). My only complaint is that I can’t figure out how to remove a show from “My Shows”. My sense is that it’s something simple that I'm just not seeing, please advise.
  • Podcast stops every few seconds

    By Yucajey Dijo Que No
    Like other listeners, I’ve been unable to listen to a single Fiasco episode without unexpected halts every couple of seconds. It’s extremely annoying.
  • Great but missing simple feature

    By eat tangerine
    Why can’t I create playlists? What is this continue listening that I have no idea what’s being played next? Please fix and I’ll give the last star
  • Not smooth in the slightest

    By Tedwards45
    I love and keep the app purely for some of the great shows on it. However, I’m tempted daily to cancel just because it is such a pain. It’s not uncommon to press play on an episode and then to have an episode from a completely different show start playing. The only way to fix it is by restarting the app, but startup takes forever even when I have a show downloaded and I’m on WiFi. They don’t have the ability to delete shows from your history, so the app often defaults to playing a show I listened to once back in May and hated. It gets two starts for content but that’s all.
  • Not great

    By Jly137
    Things I like: The couple shows that are exclusive to luminary, the fact it has a 1.25x speed listening option Things I don't: it's glitchy. It'll stop randomly and start again from the beginning of an episode. Sometimes it'll go back to where you were sometimes it wont. Once it started playing an episode of something that wasn't even the most recent thing I was listening to when my phone was in another room, hours after even listening to anything. It kinda freaked me out. If you're going to charge money for something that is usually free, be better.
  • Content vs App Performance

    By 4 33
    Really wonderful content on a profoundly slow opening app. We are utilizing iPhone X Maxes and it is hands down the slowest opening and content loading app we’ve ever experienced since the first generation iPhone. It literally takes almost 30 seconds for just the full Luminary splash logo to appear.
  • $7.99

    By cacaca44
    So I will be charged $7.99 for this app
  • Needs some work

    By Shibilet2
    I’m really disappointed. It’s a beautiful app, but it just doesn’t work. I even tried paying for a subscription (there’s a Luminary-only podcast I really like, it used to be on Apple), and the app wouldn’t let me. It’s a shame, but I guess I stick to Apple and Stitcher.
