I hope everything is okay, and becomes available again. I need to reinstall it.

Removing it from 3rd party listings had to hurt sales- developer likely abandoned SL for opportunity were those they do business with are not overnight cutting off the ability to pay rent or put food on table- LL is WELL KNOWN to destroy a business overnight without warning that has made the mistake of becoming overly invested in the platform.


I mostly use this mobile viewer. Without it Its not likely I will continue sub.... 😢 Mobile connection is a MUST 2019...


Well the good news is that gaming streaming services like Shadow are becoming more popular and with Shadow you can stream SL in ultra on your portable device.

Word of the street is Linden Lab filed a complaint of IP Infringement against her in the play store forcing her to discontinue the viewer availability and development.

Hello, you can still get the viewer as an apk or from aptoide which is an apk withing a apk like the playstore.


I've played for nearly 13 years the last 6 on mobile. It's time to move on. You really dropped the ball on this one LindenLabs


what is shadow if so can i have link on how to get it?


Update. Lumiya is available for free on aptoid now.trusted and safe.i have downloaded and it works great.passed virus scan with avg too

Stacy Whitney

for those of you who may not have found out..Lumiya is available on slideme.com. You have to first download and join slideme, then purchase lumiya..yes this sucks for those of us who had bought it already on play store..but we have to do it again..then you purchase and download Lumiya. You will get pop ups saying your device wont allow you to download it, but will give the option to do it anyway

Stacy Whitney

p.s..there is a free version available on that sight as well, but is an older version


Lumiya viewer is still available on Aptoid
