What happened with Lumiya?
#1
I know it's still around and all, but...

It's been removed and now is gone from the viewer directory.

Does this mean it's a app that cannot be trusted anymore?

No idea, maybe it was removed since its not free?

I use it all the time, works awesomely.

At times it more stable than pc client.

If I read it rightly, the TPV is only for those APPZ/Programs that meet a certain way of doing things that LL deem to be acceptable.

If any software can do something that gives one user a better user experience than the rest then it doesn't get put in or gets in with a major warning to fix said ability ASAP or else.

I know before it's very recent update it couldn't show bento bones, so maybe thats why it got took out, but I just guessing.

But I love it.

Yes I use it too, and have no problem with it! It's great on my Samsung phone. I use it when I cant get to my pc.

Their is talk as I look more into it.. That since it was a viewer people had to pay for, that could be one of the reasons to why it was pulled.

Basically it was something one had to pay for, which should have been free.

It is possible, but Lumiya was a paid app from start, wasn't like they started free then went paid afterwards, so they had been in the TPV list for a long long time as a paid app before getting pulled out.

Check out Littlesight:

I think I know real reason Lumiya got pulled.
It's not because it's paid, as Littlesight is a paid app, but Littlesight is what I class as shareware / crippledwear, basically they offer a free version but it so completely and utterly useless till you pay that you pay for it, but technically it's free to use.

So LL goes to Lumiya creator and says, oi mush we've changed our minds we only listing free software now so go free or else.

Lumiya creator says no why should I?

LL say just make a free version doesn't matter how crap it is, not like we have any standards of quality of our own.

Lumiya creator replies I do have standards and I'm not serving up some crap version just to have a free version.

LL go fine you're off the list.

Basically the TPV list is LL's way of saying. those on this list do what we say, when we say it, and don't put up any kind of a fight.

It's not saying they are safe, just says they do as their told by us.

And thats story time over for today Smile

Linden Labs has always been afraid of the sitting US administration.
See the history of Zindra and the forced removals of all adult
businesses to one big adult continent.
I bet Lumiya was removed just because it is of Russian origine.

Yeah, as safe as any of the other viewers.

In a way, being a pure paid app, be business suicide for the creator financially to do anything sneaky, if it was a crippled ware ya paid to make fully functional then I might of replied not 100% sure.

But to put mind at ease, i use a vpn ad blocker called blokada, and i have it set to use malware and adlists to auto block, and lumiya never triggers anything.

And nothing strange shows up when I hack the app via lucky patcher on my rooted phone either.

you can also use apps like noroot firewall to monitor every single server each app tries to connect to  then allow/block what ya like.

You probably got a milion times worse things to worry about with LL themselves, they as shady as they come. Smile
