Not enough free stuff
by Manny bug Minecraft on 2020/05/31 21:56
This game could be really fun and enjoyable I didn’t plan it for about a month and I’m addicted however there’s a lot of stuff you can do for free on the game there’s about six or seven songs plus the one that you can get the beginning you have to buy a lot of songs with in game currency but you don’t get a lot of in game currency like whenever you level up you only get one simoleon and songs costs 25 to 40 each which I think is ridiculous I recently discovered the VIP area and let’s just say there’s probably 200 songs that you have to pay for to get which is ridiculous I’m deleting the app right now because I can’t find any join anymore without being able to do much of anything in the game so it’s fine but I wouldn’t recommend it if you don’t want to pay
okay...THIS IS AMAZINGGGGGGGGGG

Good but slow...
by rainbow unicorn queen on 2020/05/30 23:34
This game is really fun! You can play music on the piano on a ipad or phone! But...it stopped working. I was really upset and not happy... I would wait like two minutes to wait for it to load when i open the app... IT WOULD NOT LOAD!!! It rarely works its been doing this for a while. 🙁if the creator of this app sees this review PLEASE FIX IT
Why are there extra notes?
by yerocsc2 on 2020/05/30 10:36
This is stupid. I’m trying to make a song and there are extra notes that I don’t need.
Bug issue
by Ranky Doodle on 2020/05/30 10:01
This game is a must-have. I have this app since 2015. The problem is, watching Ads to earn Smoola is glitchy now. After watching an Ad and then exit out, I did not earn any Smoola. Please fix that.
To many ads
by happycustamer on 2020/05/29 16:04
If I have to watch an ad to play a song that they are letting me play for free, that makes sense but after that another ad? Really?! It’s ridiculous! Even after songs I do own! The app would be five stars if it wasn’t for that!
It was fine at first....
by moca's bread on 2020/05/28 22:38
I needed like 5 coins to get this song I really wanted so I watched an ad, but the ad didn’t give me any coins and I tried again and still didn’t give me any. And then I don’t login for a single day and all the songs I got were gone. Kinda ruined the game for me
Changes needed
by Simply_Queen_ on 2020/05/28 17:51
I honestly don’t “play” this game anymore. I do, however, make and listen to songs. One thing that’s pissing me really bad is the “open in composer” option. Yes, you thought you fixed the “100 copies of the same stinkin song” issue.... but people are still copying songs and getting the original composer’s likes and buys!!! For example: I made an arr. of “When I Am Older” from Frozen 2 that was decent. I only have 19 buys. Some jerk made an obvious negative change to the song(added notes reminiscent of slamming your hands on the keyboard) and he has 100+ buys... FROM MY SONG!!!! So few people make REAL improvements to songs through this feature that I’m DEMANDING that you REMOVE IT!!! Also add the default ability to have a time stamp for when a song was last posted/edited and a search filter for most recently published, most popular, and (if you never remove the copy ability) originals(not “inspired” songs. Please act on these suggestions if you wanna stay in business!!!
It’s so hard to just get smoola and songs
by your ganes biggest fan :) on 2020/05/28 04:04
Whenever I try and watch videos to get smoola points or coins or whatever it never works. It works like 30% of the time, which is horrible. Fix this. You’re better than this. Cmon. (If you saw my face you’d see the visible disappointment 😔)
Annoying
by djaritzen on 2020/05/27 22:42
I love the game but it’s not allowing me to get coins
Man I’m disappointed that they wouldn’t give me more coins to play
by fukie123 on 2020/05/27 22:03
I hate this app so much aaaaaaaarge i’m sooooooo mad i hate that Jesus Christ man geez

You have to use tokens to play songs
Review
by CreepyPastaEmo911 on 2020/05/25 20:09
I love this game. Except the fact that, when I go to get more Smule coins by watching videos. (Five coins=One Video) I have watched 13 videos but haven’t gotten any money.
What happened
by Dawn19999 on 2020/05/25 01:14
This app used to be a good app but even on difficulty level easy it is too hard it needs one tap practice back the songs are becoming way too hard for people to enjoy them!!☹️☹️
Ads for smoola a not working
by BabyFwogs on 2020/05/24 22:22
First of all, there’s basically no other way to make a more than one smoola without watching a bunch of ads. 25 for a cheaper one, and you have to either watch 5 videos, or get to level 25. That’s complete bull. Especially when the whole thing you’re advertising is the songs on it. But when I DO watch the videos (or try to) it just doesn’t give me the smoola. I don’t want to play the same songs over and over again to level up to get ONE smoola. Please either make it easier to get smoola, or make the songs cheaper.
It’s good BUT-
by thank you K on 2020/05/24 19:59
It won’t give me my Smoles when I Watch a add it’s a good game though
One little thing....
by MISS🌸🌺🌹🌷 on 2020/05/24 15:10
I ❤️❤️ this game but every time I try to watch a video to try to get smula it doesn’t give me any... at all which is really really annoying so please try to fix that developers I love your game but if I’m trying to get smulas by a an ad I would expect to get smulas so thank you love this game have a nice day. 😁
Amazing app! (Aside from not getting rewards)
by fivcbyfivc on 2020/05/24 06:14
I’ll start off by saying I’ve had this app since I was in middle school. I’ve paid for all-access passes plenty of times over the years. It’s super easy to use, a great way to kill time and it’s down right fun. It’s cool to play songs without the frustrating aspects of learning them on a real piano. The interface for creating your own music is super easy and in-depth. I’ve had a lot of fun transcribing my favorite songs onto the app. I love the feature especially since I’m a pianist but, given my living situation, I’m unable to have a physical piano/keyboard. Now, the only real negative experience I’ve had is regarding the ads and smoola. This probably started happening a few years back and I just thought my app, specifically, was being glitchy. When I click on the plus in the bottom corner to watch an ad to get 5 free smoola, I never get the rewards. What’s frustrating is when you really, really enjoy an app that you use nearly every single day, only for it to cheat you out of the only reward available. I’ve stopped using this app for awhile, assuming the problem would be acknowledged and fixed. But, here I am, years later with the same problem. Considering the fact that I’ve put quite a bit of money into the app, it’s honestly super frustrating having put so much time in, only for it to basically force me to spend money just to get new songs. Don’t get me wrong, I really do like the app. But being able to play the same old songs I’ve had for years makes me wanna delete it. After this long review, here’s a summary. The app is super responsive, doesn’t lag much, can really help you de-stress from the day, is unbelievable addicting, and is a super fun non-traditional piano app. It’s honestly just a minor bug but I figure the longer that my review is, the more likely I am to be acknowledged. If not... Well, I tried giving useful feedback 🤷‍♀️
I don’t get money
by billy goat 9000 on 2020/05/24 03:29
When I get an achievement I get no money when I connect my face book no money when I watch video no money fix this!!!!
Too many ads
by But am I Wright? on 2020/05/23 10:21
Toooo many ads. After each song. And long unskippable ones at that.
I love this game but one problem
by I love cookies🍪🍪🍪🍪 on 2020/05/22 23:31
I love this game ok. now don’t read this and think this is a bad game but it here is one thing the creators need to work on. The smoola thing you can get some by watching an ad. I did that and and I didn’t get anything so I waisted my time trying to get coins because I wanted to play a song I liked
Sensoring Issues
by LexiGamerGirl on 2020/05/22 19:21
Well I used to love this game, but now I can’t play without it telling me “too many fingers” and playing wrong notes. It’s so unpleasant, and I know I’m not playing with too many. I mean, what’s the big deal with that?
I used to like this...
by And I Ooooooopppp on 2020/05/22 17:22
I use to play this app when I was little and now this app is just driving me crazy. I mean ever time I finish a song that I played there would always be an ad. Now I believe there weren’t ads after EVERY song a few years ago!?!
Why is this so hard?
by Everyhingsbs on 2020/05/22 17:07
This is so hard, what happened to the 1 finger practice?Magic Tiles is a tiny bit easier than this. Please add back the 1 finger practice!!!!! 😕
Needs Improvements
by Anne of Belany🏄🏼‍♀️ on 2020/05/22 00:56
I love lots of things about this game, it has fun and popular songs, you can choose different levels of difficulty, and it gives you a chance to discover new songs! But a few things would make people like it more and want to keep playing it: 1. When you level up, you should get something like 5 or 10 coins, instead of just 1 coin, because songs cost so much of them. Either that or the cost of the songs themselves should go down a bit. 2. You shouldn’t have to search for songs you bought, they should be in the My Music category. The first song I bought, showed up in the My Music category only AFTER I played it. If I wanted to find and play it after re-opening the game, I had to search for it. 3. Leveling up shouldn’t be so hard early on. If you want people to play the game, they need to feel like they’re making progress, at least in the first 10 or so levels. 4. You should get bigger rewards for achievements, since it is so difficult to complete them. More coins or a new song or a new piano type would make players work harder for them. Hope this is helpful. I like this game, but it could easily be better, with the makers of the game still benefiting from their awesome creation!!
Have to fix the smoola ads
by Ntran008 on 2020/05/21 19:03
I love this game it's fun it has on my favorite songs but I can't play those songs without smoolas and the easiest way to get it is by watching ads but the ads don't work. When I watch it the ad to Get some smoolas it doesn't work please fix this ad right away then I'll give it a five star rating. please and thank you.
stuck with the same few songs
by YeriTheUnicorn on 2020/05/21 04:04
I cant get any new songs because the adds don't work and literally the only way to get coins is to lvl up which takes wayyy longer than it did in the past. I'm at lvl 12 and I have 10 songs but I wont be able to get new songs until lvl 15 for coins. fix it.
Not worth your time
by ppreze on 2020/05/20 18:43
I used to love this app and in theory I still do. But now you literally can’t play anything without paying. Also side it but 9.99 a week or a month whatever brute charging either way it’s not worth it. I tried watching videos and wasted 3 min of my time bc no coins were added. Published my own thing and let me play it once before trying to get me to pay for VIP bc I can no longer play something I composed. Literally an ad if you click on anything. Sick of it. So sad to come back to this game only to not even be able to play it. Going to download the games they show me during ads and delete this one.
Problem with smoola
by Kiki popular lemon on 2020/05/20 05:12
I love this app and I have had it for quite some time, but whenever I do the watch a video get 5 smoola it lets me watch the video then doesn’t give me the smoola. In the passed it would let me get as much as I wanted. It’s kinda hard to keep interest in this app since it takes a really long time to earn smoola.
Fun but...
by mee-mer on 2020/05/20 03:24
It is fun but watching ads won’t give smoola
Well...
by Nonie Bird on 2020/05/20 01:39
I did the 7 day free trial and played smile everyday for hours, but then it expired. When it did, I could barely play anything, I couldn’t earn enough smoola to have fun, and... WTH?!?!?! WHY ON EARTH DOES IT COST TEN DOLLARS FOR ONE WEEK OF THE ALL AXCESS?!?! It is ridiculous! 😤 It was sad when I had to delete the app, I “was” literally obsessed with this game a day ago, but when you can’t do anything on your favorite game, it isn’t exactly your favorite anymore 😞 Note for the creators: please do somthing about this problem, I’m pretty sure most players have experienced this. At least add more free songs, or don’t, I probably won’t be playing the game anymore :/
Game is glitchy and a ripoff
by trustworthysource(sophiac) on 2020/05/19 22:33
I have many complaints about this app. 1. The in-app purchases are a rip off. How could this app have the audacity to charge $99.99 for one year of unlimited music? 2. You don’t get Smule coins for watching ads. I have watched several advertisements to earn Smule coins because it advertises that you can get coins by doing this, but it never gives me my coins. 3. It makes you pay to play songs after you play them too much. I played a song from the movie Moana ONCE and once I tried to play it again, it said I had to pay, even though it was already under the list of songs that were in my songbook. 4. Daily challenges are fake. I see the same players winning everyday. You can’t make the leaderboard even if you play the song perfectly. 5. Composer setting is terribly glitchy. I click to place one note and it adds two, sometimes three of the same note when I only want to place one. 6. Makes you pay to play other players songs with Smule coins. They should not be making money off of other people’s music. That’s just shallow. 7. The songs you make on composer get all messed up when you publish them. The rhythm of the song becomes completely different and it sounds awful.
Needs fixed
by Specifex on 2020/05/19 05:41
The offer wall and watching videos doesn’t give you the smoola. Have to pay real money to get anything since all the free options do not work. I watch all the videos 100% through and wait till I can safely exit out and I’ve done this 10 times and I still only have the 3 I started with. Rating is 1 star until this is fixed or I am told how to solve this.
Too many ads, smoola glitch.
by Must tune in! on 2020/05/18 13:25
I absolutely hate this game!!!!!! There are wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too many ads. Even though I’m not vip or whatever the amount of ads probably makes this app lose a lot of players. Also I want my smoola when watching a video but it doesn’t give it to me. Please fix it.
I LOVE this game! But one suggestion
by Mama688479 on 2020/05/18 13:21
I like this game. You have a million songs to play. You can even make your own songs. However, I want to make a song but I can’t just log in. Can you change how you make an account from an email to make an account like you would on Roblox? Anyway, this game still the best!
Smoola problem
by 😀😐😠 on 2020/05/17 19:29
Whenever I watch an ad or earn an achievement that usually gives me smoola it won’t give me anything. I’ve been stuck at four smoola for a while now and I don’t think I’ll be able to get any more than that.
Horrible, needs changes
by Jehovah's Wittnesses on 2020/05/16 16:06
First of all, the app wont even open. I tried for 30 minutes, and got bored of it. that is why, i don't like this game. please help me. Otherwise, the game songs are pretty good, (and i know this because my sister also has this game), but you could add some more. Please let me get in, and thank you
Watching videos for smoola
by kurburg on 2020/05/15 21:26
Free video smoola does not work
SMOOlA!!
by Melissa Takach on 2020/05/13 05:48
I hate smoola I already know I have to pay real money to get smoola and it’s stupid! You can’t even play music for free
Holy motherforking shirtballs
by AmazingFluffyUnicorn on 2020/05/12 23:37
I can’t publish my songs it keeps on saying “sorry try again later” and it’s been doing that for a whole forking week. Whenever I look at ads for smoola it doesn’t GIVE ME ANY so WHAT THE FORK. What kind of bullshirt is this such a dumb app. Also I can’t give live performances or share any wut is this dumb bullshirt??? 🍴🍴🍴👕👕👕
Freezes
by sharkee69 on 2020/05/12 13:40
Had this app for years now it is freezing and messes up constantly after a update
What happened??
by Al085 on 2020/05/12 02:50
This used to be a great app for unwinding and relaxing, but now you spend 50% of your time on the app watching ads??? It's understandable for the free songs but even songs that you've purchased?? That's ridiculous. After playing every song you're forced to watch a 30+ second ad! It literally changes the entire experience from relaxing to annoying. Sometimes you watch and ad to earn the coins but it won’t give you any...
Give me my free smula
by giamoneygirl8 on 2020/05/11 17:57
I keep watching videos for free smula and it never gives it to me
You can’t keep the songs you buy.
by ❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔ on 2020/05/11 17:19
I got the game and was pretty impressed with the wide variety of music. I used the coins to buy two songs. But even though I payed for them, I only get to keep them for a day? What kind of bs? Why can’t I just keep the song I bought?! Not to mention it’s so hard to get coins.
Not working
by upsetguys on 2020/05/11 00:47
The games fun but I can’t buy any new songs because I watch the adds but don’t get coins in return ?
It never gives you any coins!!!
by Lillian Moonlight 123 on 2020/05/10 19:40
I like this game but when I watch an add to get five coins it does not give me any coins!!! Also when you level up you only get ONE coin!!! Other wise this game is GREAT except the songs don’t always sound the same as in the real video and it never says the words to the song well anyways this game is Great maybe you should get it for your self it’s FREE!!!
I can’t play COOL SONGS?!
by Great,but I like 4 of them on 2020/05/10 00:00
I don’t like you locking COOL SONGS?!You can’t lock cool songs.You are an Idiot and you’re not an admin.Who told you to say VIP ONLY?!That don’t make sense!And that’s not fair!🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
Wouldn’t recommend
by just_me and my cats on 2020/05/09 21:03
My fingers get sore from this app, not the main issue though. After a while it deleted my progress and I had to get everything back, also it is very hard to get new songs. Maybe this would be okay for some people but I have deleted it.
Good
by princessmerida12 on 2020/05/09 20:30
I love this game! This has great songs. My only issue is that when I watch the videos it doesn’t give me smoola no matter how many I watch. It’s sad because I want to get new songs but I can’t cause the levels take forever then you only get one smoola when you do level up. I just wish the videos worked. Besides that, this game is great and I would highly recommend it for music lovers!
The ads are actually disgusting
by m3galuCArio67 on 2020/05/09 12:55
Can you take the ad for super salon off, it’s gross
Disappointed
by Give me Once Upon a Time on 2020/05/09 03:51
I played this app years ago and loved it. There were always songs to play and you could earn free points to get songs that weren’t free. However, now you get stuck after a week of playing. Even near perfect scores barely make your level increase and when you do reach the next level your reward is like one song and 2, maybe 5, points it takes FOREVER to reach enough points to buy a new song and then you have to start all over. I’ve gotten more songs by being in the top 500 on the daily challenge than I have by redeeming points. AND worst of all they offer ads to watch for x amt of points in return, but since I downloaded the app I have NOT ONCE gotten my payment for watching the ad. It’s ridiculous.
Add more songs

Can you please add these songs Lost sky: forever Unknown brain: why do I Georgia ku: ever really know
Coin system broke
by BinxyBongo on 2020/05/07 20:35
I play videos to get coins to buy songs but now after watching idk how many videos, NO coins showed up which is sad cuz I wanna play
Never got my free Smoola
by Hamiltonlover1324 on 2020/05/07 18:43
I watched 4 videos but never got my free smoola that was promised. If the team could fix this it would be amazing!!! Otherwise this is a great game and it’s very fun to play.
The advertisements oof
by GoddessOfNightNyx on 2020/05/06 12:48
Yeah it’s a great game cause we can compose our own songs and other people can play them as well but the ads!!! When I try to get smoola from ads it always fails!! And then with the other methods such as quizzes, i have to get 100% on quizzes, even though it doesn’t tell me that I have to?!
My songs are gone

Would rate 0 stars if I could
There’s a problem
by EvanRocks465 on 2020/05/05 01:33
I like this app, but the only problem is that I don’t get 5 smoola when I watch ads on the free smoola option. It would be great if this was fixed.
Really good app but one problem :/

U can’t get coins any more not sure why
Went downhill
by bamitsbritt123 on 2020/05/04 15:04
I’ve had this app for years and recently downloaded it again, only to be filled with disappointment. There are ads galore... before playing songs, after playing songs, and even in between ads in order to get more smoola. That’s another thing, the app is almost forcing you to pay to have more songs because you can’t even do actions to get more smoola to buy more songs. I’ve tried multiple surveys, inviting friends, watching an unhealthy amount of ad videos, you name it. I should be filthy stinking rich, but there is no reward for doing any of the actions that the app promises will be rewarded with smoola. The only way to get money to purchase more songs is by 1) paying for VIP which I, a broke college student, will not bring myself to do 2) getting 1 whopping smoola after leveling up.. that’s a lot of daily challenges and repetition of the few songs I already own. Overall, I am very unhappy with the changes this app has made and it brings me more pain than joy to game during my quarantine
Good game but one problem
by Santos zombie elf on 2020/05/03 20:55
I love this game but I can’t earn Smoola by watching ads anymore, I can’t get more songs unless I level up.
Love this game but I can’t get smoola
by MarieWT on 2020/05/03 17:47
I love this game it’s so much fun! I’ve played this game for years and it’s been great. I love the daily challenges and the songs. There’s just one thing that can get annoying there’s so many songs I want to play, but can’t because I don’t have enough smoola. I tried watching the free ads to get five smoola but it won’t give me any so if you could fix that problem that would make me very happy. If you could also add more achievements to the game that be nice as well. 🙂

by xxArcaDeer305xx on 2020/05/03 12:50
The free options to get smoola do not work, you’ll watch an ad to get free smoola but once it’s over...nothing happens you don’t get any smoola.And since 90% of the songs cost smoola, you have to buy smoola with real money
TOO MANY ADS
by Chained2darren on 2020/05/03 05:28
An ad before AND after every song? You spend more time watching ads than actually playing. Ridiculous.
So much better!!!
by graygrayblue on 2020/05/02 05:14
Thank you sooooooooo much for dropping the price back to what it was!! Bought the year pass because I love this game (honestly I was boycotting the big price and got way too excited when I saw it dropped lol) Ahhh can’t wait to start playing again!! 😍😍😍
Too many ADS
by Coffee❤️❤️❤️ on 2020/05/02 03:31
There is an ad after EVERY SINGLE SONG and I don’t mean a pop up, I mean a full 15-30 second ad that you can’t get rid of! On top of that, when you choose to watch ads to get the in game currency, guess what? You only get the ad. No reward. The game itself is amazingly fun and I love finding my favorite songs to play. But I’m starting to feel like it’s not worth it!
Used to be great
by Mitsy Puffin on 2020/05/01 01:24
This used to be a wonderful app. But now it simply has too many ads to be even remotely enjoyable (literally one before AND after each song), it’s more frustrating than anything. Additionally, you progress much more slowly than used to be the case, so you are encouraged to spend money in order to get anywhere. I can’t love it anymore, I can’t even like it, so I deleted it.

TERRIBLE!!!
Fewer Ads
by ronniemj on 2020/04/30 01:40
I previously wrote a negative review, which criticized the number ads, as did many other reviewers. Thankfully, Smule has scaled back the number of ads, and the game is playable again, so I am changing my review.
fun but dumb
by Mikeypmcg on 2020/04/30 01:03
there’s literally no way to get smoolas without spending money. every time i watch an ad to get some it never gives me any and every time you level up you get ONE. what the point in playing when you can only replay the five songs over and over again..
Ads
by pon pon ninja on 2020/04/29 21:16
The ads let you get simolas but is does give you any
Too hard to progress
by MILES🌈 on 2020/04/29 20:33
It’s a fun game, it’s just that to buy a song you wanna play is SO expensive! 25 smula. When you level up you get one. When you complete an achievement you get 1 or 2. I am aware that you can do stuff like watch adds for more, but I never get my award after. Please fix this is make changes. This used to be such a great app
It’s fun but...
by thefunnycat on 2020/04/29 17:14
Well I had an acc and I did delete the app got it agin and it did not remember me?! I am upset I mean it’s a good app and another thing is the coins i watch ads o get free coins but I don’t I did redownloas it now thank you
Disappointing
by missveehorse on 2020/04/29 02:25
I used to play this game and recently re downloaded it. There are SO MANY ads! You can't play a single song without being bombarded with ads. On top of that, the game won't give me my smule rewards so I can't even earn new songs. This app has gone way downhill.
Very bad method of earning smoola
by waloook on 2020/04/28 16:06
I loved this game until I knew that I can’t get smoola even after watching these stupid videos !!! Even tho it says that I’ll get smoola if I watched the videos!!!
To many ads
by #animallover#1 on 2020/04/28 16:06
This game is so much fun if you ever get to play it they have so many ads
Money
by 1 month ago on 2020/04/28 08:23
Ive watched a ton of videos and it won’t let me claim and smoola is there a way around this?
Ad problems
by veva8 on 2020/04/28 00:11
I love this game but when I try to get smola from watching a ad at the end of the ad it doesn’t give me anything
SMOOLA AD ISSUE!!! PLEASE FIX THIS!!!
by SailorVenus418 on 2020/04/27 18:19
Please fix this!!! Every time I watch an ad to gain 5 Smoola, it doesn’t give me any at all! I noticed I’m not the only one experiencing this massive issue... SMULE, PLS FIX!!! - SailorVenus418
Ads
by g1392 on 2020/04/26 22:43
ive also had a problems with never recieving any smule even after watching ads to get some. It gets really annoying cause now I cant buy any songs even after watching many ads
Composer Tool Suggestions
by annajc0922 on 2020/04/26 20:27
Other than the constant ads like you’ve probably seen complaints about in every other review, I think this app is really enjoyable, as a composer. I’ve had a lot of fun with making piano arrangements of my favorite songs that are not yet in the game’s song library. However, I think there are a few tools that would be really helpful if they were added to the game. One of them is the ability to make tempo changes within the song. Right now you can only set a tempo for the entire song, which makes it hard to arrange songs that may start slow but speed up further into the song. Secondly, I think it would also be great if there was an option to have multiple meter changes within the song. Thirdly, something I thought would be good for stylistic purposes is being able to make a glissando be one motion or something like that instead of having to put every individual note of the glissando, which can get a bit difficult and tiring for the player to play at the right speed to make it sound right in the context of the song. Additionally, it’d be nice if I could work on more than one song at a time. Also, I like that there’s a button to jump down to the beginning of the song, but I also think there should be one to jump up to the end of what you’ve worked on so far. There have been so many times when I play through my song, then accidentally hit the “jump to beginning” button and have had to scroll all the way back up. Finally, there have been multiple instances where I wished there were one or two more lower octaves below what there is now. Anyway, I don’t know if this will get read by the developers or not, but it’s worth a shot. Overall I still really enjoy the game. 4/5 stars!
No more Smola after watching ads.
by Ends of the Wayward Storm on 2020/04/26 01:20
I used to be able to watch ads and then get five Smola, but that doesn't work anymore. Please fix this. This is such a fun app!
what king of game says “play faster” when you start playing the song?
by fry chickennugget on 2020/04/25 22:19
This is so stupid when started playing it says “pLaY sLoWeR” then I played slower but it said “pLaY fAsTeR” bruh I JUST STARTED PLAYIng the sONg!!
Not Counting Smoola
by Cootgirl on 2020/04/25 16:44
The app is pretty good except it’s not counting my Smoola whenever I watch an ad to get 5 Smoola. Please fix.
>:(
by micraftisdabest:) on 2020/04/25 15:13
Alright, so I remembered this app from when I was about 3 years old. My brother had it on his tablet, so I would always ask to play it. Hey, at least back then it was good! But now it’s gone REALLY down hill. There’s an ad every time I finish a song. Then when I go to play a different song, there’s another ad! It’s super annoying when I go to play songs! Also, there is a glitch. When I go to get free Smoola by watching an ad, it doesn’t make the count go up! If there’s a demo after the ad it doesn’t go up, but if there is no demo it will go up. So I basically waste 5 minutes trying to get some more Smoola by watching ads. So maybe try to get the ads WITHOUT demos. Because every single ad I get, there’s always a demo. That’s fine after playing a song, but not when I get free Smoola. It’s really annoying wasting my time which I could spend on better things watching ads. So try to fix this glitch please! Other than that, it’s still kinda good. You can still get songs, and I love composing my own songs, so it’s kinda good. Thank you for reading.
Free Smoola? Free NOTHING.
by R@Nd0M N@m3 :3 on 2020/04/25 14:02
Ok, this app is very good. (for the free songs you have to watch ads to get, and every time you want to play it, you have to watch an AD.) However, when I go to the free Smoola section of the app, I watch an ad, I earn absolutely nothing. I watched 25 freaking advertisements to get absolutely nothing in return. I really do hope you guys fix the advertisement issues, and PLEASE, fix the Smoola. (It’s literally the only way I earn it.) Meanwhile, the song that you get when you actually have Smoola, and are able to spend it on the things you want, the songs that are by Smule are very accurate. (most by other composers will too, but some just don’t put the work into it.) The piano sounds are accurate, and overall, the only problem is advertisements! (and Smoola) With hope that you fix this mess, Kawaiikekki09
MAJOR BUG, but otherwise fantastic game
by MRW_Stacking on 2020/04/25 04:56
This game is fantastic, but there’s a major bug with getting Smoola. That is if you watch a video, you don’t get your 5 Smoola.
Too many ads!
by AmpKarim on 2020/04/25 02:09
The app is great and all but it just wants to force you to get its premium version. I mean even free songs have an add playing before and after each trach EVERY SINGLE TIME!
Not fair
by ishqkgsiwzgiwgxiwnxi on 2020/04/24 15:53
I really love the game but when I got my new iPhone 6 I went to easy mode on all my songs I get to play and I always get 2 finger and 1 finger but when you have a samsung you only get 1 finger why is it that iPhones get 2 fingers it’s not fair
Smoola glitch
by 935370383626926472938373 on 2020/04/23 21:15
So I find this game fun but most songs cost 25-75 smoola so I go to the store to buy smoola so I watch a video for 5 smoola but yet when the video is over it doesn’t give me anything. Please fix this. On the side note maybe you add more ways to get smoola or something such as getting smoola daily
Fun.. but many problems
by Nikki Shook on 2020/04/23 19:42
Magic Piano is so much fun and I play it DAILY! Thank you so much Smule for making this game. Although there are some problems with the game. I used to buy so many songs with my Smoola because I would watch ads for 5 free Smoola, but now, I basically watch ads for no reason! It won’t give me the Smoola anymore. Please fix this. Another issue. When I’m playing a song a lot of times it tells me to play slower. So I do. But then it tells me to play faster. No matter what I do in less than 15 seconds it tells me to fix how I’m playing. Here’s another one. It’s not an issue it’s just a complaint..not to be rude. I’ve been trying so hard to get on the top 50 list of the daily songs for a couple of months now, but it’s super hard! Could you please make it easier to get on the top list? If you need my username it’s NicoleTwinkle12.
Either intentional or a bug it’s annoying.
by Warrior cats pickle on 2020/04/23 18:13
I don’t know if other users have had this occurrence, but when I play a song and it has a note of four coming up, I hit it, and it pauses the song, that feature is super annoying and if it’s a bug please fix it. I despise having to click that “resume” button a good 30 times to even finish one song.
Horrible Game!!!
by abu234554 on 2020/04/23 00:30
I USED TO PLAY THIS GAME AND IT WAS RLLY FUN SO I DECIDED TO DOWNLOAD IT AGAIN BUT IT GIVES ME AN AD EVERY TWO SECONDS AND YOU CANT EVEN EARN COINS EASILY ANYMORE AND THE REASON IM WRITING THIS REVIEW IS CAUSE ONE OF YOUR STUPID ADS CHARGED MY PHONE COMPANY AND MADE ME SUBSCRIBE TO THIS STUPID AD AND NOW I OWE $10 EACH MONTH
Not very good
by TienManX on 2020/04/22 03:22
The app had a lot of ads and when I tried to watch one and get rewards it didn’t even give me them
Great app!
by Kz81 on 2020/04/22 01:37
I really love this app! And a lot of the songs or pieces are easy to play! Your game is really fun to play! And rate it 5 starts.
Smoola and ad problems
by gamerwskills on 2019/08/11 19:28
I’ve had this app for at least 6 years and I loved playing it when I first downloaded it. I don’t really mind all the changes that made the app look different, but I’m having problems that I never had in the past. When I played this app on my iPad, I watched videos to get at least 75 smoola and it worked. Then recently when I started to do it again, it worked but then I would get ads that didn’t get me any smoola. When I first started having this problem, I thought that there might be a glitch in the app. So I tried to buy a song from the Songbook because I thought I would get the song I wanted even though I didn’t have the right amount of smoola. But when I tapped on the song to buy it, it said that I didn’t have the right amount even though I watched videos to earn smoola. Sometimes I would wait to get more smoola and then when I press the button to earn 5 smoola, it would say there I should come back later to watch more videos. Then I go to use another app to occupy myself. Then when I go back to the app, I would press the same button again, but then I would get an ad that doesn’t get me any smoola. I also wish that I wouldn’t have to watch videos after playing songs and I wouldn’t have to watch videos to play free songs even though I already played the song I want to play again.
I used to love it...
by @miggysbiggestfan on 2017/12/01 21:09
So I've had this app probably since I was 15 when I first got my iPhone 6, and it was addicting up until now. Okay so last night every single song I have showed 3 stars next to each level of difficulty that I have played at, and just a few minutes ago when I went to open the app, ALL of my songs showed no stars highlighted, no scores, no nothing. Like I just bought them or composed them and haven't even started playing them yet. I am really angry. 😡😡 Also there are just too many ads. 👎🏻 Every ten seconds after I finish a song, a stupid ad pops up about some coloring book or food game and it's really annoying. 😤 Also I really hate how the majority of everyone's favorite songs nowadays can't be played unless you have a VIP membership accessibility. It's ridiculous. I feel that VIP membership to play a song on Magic Piano should be banned, because you know, there are not very many VIP members in the world. I'm seriously thinking about deleting this app from my phone for permanent. I've not only had to deal with the troubles I stated above, but I've also had to deal with the app freezing up, songs I compose that won't let me publish no matter what I do, and Daily Challenge songs taking decades to load and then refreshing the app only for it to crash every time I reopen it. It's getting really frustrating and I can't take it any longer. 🚫
Not like I remember
by PennePastaCat on 2019/07/28 18:58
I had this app a couple years ago and absolutely loved it. It was challenging to play, since I only had a tiny device to play it on, but it was great. I actually felt like I was making progress with each song and difficulty I completed. I fell out of touch with the app in college and recently decided to redownload it because of how fun I remembered it being. I am disappointed with what Ive found. It feels like the only way to actually progress and earn coins for new songs is to spend money. It’s either that, or play the same few songs over and over again, making little progress each time. I could play a song on the hardest level without missing a single note, and still barely progress to higher levels. Not to mention the plethora of ads. I fully understand that when you play a game for free to expect a few ads here and there, but no other free app I’ve ever used has shoved so many ads in my face. I was able to tolerate it for a while, because the game itself is loads of fun, but my patience has worn out and I’ve deleted the app from my devices. It’s a shame because I absolutely adore the gameplay and ability to compose my own songs. I got this app to help relax when I have an idle moment between school and work, but it’s proven to be more stressful dealing with the above issues than it’s worth. It’s absolute waste of time, money, and effort.
Fun to play, but not my style
by FoxeGamer01 on 2019/02/28 05:04
I’ve downloaded this app on and off lately, for separate reasons. First of all, I hate all of these ads! I mean, sometimes every time you enter a different song, the same ad pops up. So on top of having to watch these stupid ads for different games, it’s the same one over and over and over. It’s so annoying that I’ve purposely turned off my Wi-Fi just to get rid of ads. It’s ridiculous! Second of all, I hate that the achievements give you only one or two coins! I mean, about eighty percent of the songs cost twenty five coins! And you work so hard on a single achievement to only get one coin? It’s stupid! Last but not least, there’s the case of this VIP stuff! I mean, half the songs in the entire app is in the VIP section! And almost all of my favorite songs are in the VIP section! It’s just not fair. Why should we spend our money on some stupid things like VIP memberships when eventually we’re gonna delete the game for all these reasons! Basically what this game- and all games in fact- is saying is that instead of using money to buy exciting things, we’re using it for an online item that isn’t real. It’s ridiculous, it’s stupid, and it’s a waste of money. Even though I somewhat enjoyed the game, all of these things are making my interests go down! Fix these things!
Went downhill
by lencofam on 2017/12/11 05:07
I used to have this app as a very young child, and the only reason why I deleted it was because I got frustrated at its difficulty. Just recently, the game crossed my mind and I decided to re-download it and give it another go. Because I’ve gotten a lot better at video games over the years, the difficulty of the game was no longer a problem. There, were, however, new problems with the game that I didn’t expect to encounter. For starters, the game has WAY to many ads. I can’t play a single song, not even a short one like Happy Birthday, without being forced to watch a stupid, boring video that I don’t care about. I got this game because I remembered how fun it was, but it’s kind of hard to have fun when 90% of the game is just you watching ads for other games. Second of all, this game is basically begging you for money at this point. The fact that some of the songs are only available to VIP users is just stupid. Do they really expect us to spend actual money on a stupid piano game that we have on our phones? Besides from that, every achievement you can accomplish in the game (leveling up, getting new songs, etc.) can be bought with just a few bucks. The fact that literally everything in this game has been put up for sale is terrible. Well, that’s my review
$mule.. it’s all about the $$$
by Samiam1023 on 2018/04/13 00:43
I loved this game for a long time but over the last year or more the ads are ridiculous and every time before you start a song .. there’s an ad.. finish a song... another ad... select another song.. an ad.. and on and on. I paid for a one week trial and didn’t realize it continued charging me. I originally signed up for 7.99 a month only to find out a couple months later they were billing me 2.99 a week! Being able to compose songs was a cool idea until I finished a level and earned 200 coins... purchased a newer song for 75 coins that was nothing more than a few taps and that was it. I didn’t get the song I paid for and that’s happened many of times. When someone submits a composure I think someone at the company should review it first before putting it out there for people to waste their money. Lastly... I have maxed out on levels so all the songs I rack points up on are of no use since the app is now not even giving me credit so unless I want to pay for VIP I have no way to earn what little reward you get for completing a level. What started out as my absolute favorite game is now nothing more than a money sucker and it doesn’t appear that it’ll improve. Great game gone to the deleted aps of my account! They aren’t getting anymore of my money!
Horrible ads!
by Mefens on 2017/12/06 13:51
I’ve always enjoyed playing magic piano. Over the years, I’ve had a membership and at other times did not. Currently, I don’t feel I play it enough to justify paying. With that being said, I have noticed some things that make this app not very enjoyable. 1. It takes FOREVER to earn smule coins. Which makes the app not much fun because I feel like I get to play the same songs over and over again. Not cool and not challenging. 2. Under “my songs” I have a bunch of songs which I have either bought or had while having a membership. At this point without clicking on each one there is no way to tell if I’m able to play it or if I need more smule. Confusing. 3. This is the most annoying of all. The ads that I see (which I do feel there are too many of) are not ones that I wish for my kids to see. There are ones that show a doll that is getting beat up and bloodied and tells you you “kick it’s a**” and that this will “relieve your stress”, really?! Not the message I want to send. There are others I have seen that are similar, zombies I believe, and there is a lot of blood. I don’t expect or desire to see these ads, ever, yet alone, over and over again. That needs to be changed or I will have to delete this once great app.
Very good, but some flaws.
by Trtplayer on 2019/02/24 17:46
Your game is very good and I honestly think it could be quite more famous. But there are some flaws... take the amount of ads for example... every time you finish a song, ad. Whenever you want to play a song in the free song list, and I quote,”your free content will be available after this message!” And then an ad. I feel like you just went a little overboard with the ads. And second of all MEMBERSHIPS. People already know that memberships are becoming a problem. They attract you into buying them, they give you a free trial, and they make it so almost everything is membership only. I counted that vip only song list in the menu. Over (drumroll please) 700 SONGS. You might wanna check how much you do to non-members. Finally, this isn’t too much of a complaint but just a thing to tell you. You’re age rating is 4+ right? Well.... Whenever I have to rack up smoola I watch ads and one of them has been catching my eye. You might wanna check your advertising because one of the ads legit has 18+ in the corner and the end of the ad even says,” adult game for adult emotions.” But so yeah just check your ads every so often and I feel like that this game could be much better
Fingers too big?
by Jen Reeves on 2017/09/25 23:10
So I've only had the app for a couple of hours and I signed up for the free seven day trial. I love the selection of songs, and I played a couple on easy mode and thought they were quite fun. But if I change the difficulty above easy, there are times when I'm asked to hit three notes at once. The two dots off to the right are so close together I can't hit them both at the same time. I put my two fingers together as tightly as possible and tap the screen and it's only registering that I'm hitting one of the dots. I don't have big hands, I'm a woman of average height and average weight so my fingers are not chubby or unusual in any way. I feel like I am missing something. Like there Nice to be an obvious solution then I'm just not noticing. Especially because I don't see anyone else complaining about this problem. Maybe there should be settings I can change to make the dots a little bit further apart so that my fingers can hit them, but I don't see anything like that anywhere. So I really like the song selection and I like the concept of the game and the sound is very nice, so I would give it a higher rating if I could actually Play it above easy. Until I figure out what's wrong and how to fix it this app is useless to me.
Love game but....
by Unicorn Magic 432 on 2019/06/27 03:43
This game is a perfect game for when you are bored or stressed and you just want to play the piano. I also love how you are able to make your own music on the app. There are a couple of problems in the problems in the game. The first issue is that the game glitches a lot sometimes and I have to shut my phone off a couple of times and that gets annoying. A second issue is that the game takes a while to load once you open it (the longest I ever waited was about 5-8 minutes). A third issue is that if you want to play a song you have to pay for it or use coins which you have to pay for or earn by watching ads (sometimes the ads don’t even load correctly so you can’t watch the video for coins).The songs are also expensive so it’s hard to get songs. A fourth reason is that when ever I click on something I the app there is add. Adds always pop up and one time one was inappropriate(a choices add that had sexual content).Also if you create a song you don’t get to be able to own it you have to pay for it!!! I understand you guys need to make money somehow but still!!!! I like the game but it needs some tweaks for the perfect fun experience.
WHAT THE HECK SMULE
by I'm a Artist on 2018/04/19 02:09
So I get you guys are a big app now, and I have had Magic Piano since it first came out, years ago. I used it when there was only basic songs like Twinkle Twinkle little Star. I’ve kept it all these years, and never have I gotten so many ads. I have over 150 songs, do you know how many Ads I had to watch? Plus free songs. I also did TapJoy stuff, and never once got my Smula (should be almost 6800 since I did ones you actually had to pay for also) I’ve reported it and then was told it was “Lost” but it said I had done it. Of course I got a little mad. Yet, I still have the app. How am I re-payed? ADS AFTER EVERY SONG! I like to play the songs but it’s annoying when a ad comes in every two seconds. As before I can play to ad after I play then repeat. It’s used to be reasonable, 1 ad after every 3-4 songs. Sometimes 5 if you watched a Smula ad. Don’t you guys already have Millions just from all of your apps combined? You guys are getting greedy. Also the VIP thing. Why are all the good songs VIP? The daily challenges used to be VIP songs, which was cool. But now it’s songs you can go and buy. Tired of it smule. I’ll keep the game and I wish to have my 6800 Smula, but I’m not going to force it. And PLEASE KEEP THE ADS ON A DOWN LOW!
Terrible
by tifpow on 2018/03/21 05:36
This app has gotten worse and worse. There is very rarely any free content created. I have a large library of songs that I accumulated when the app had a bigger variety of free songs, but even I get bored of playing those. So, does that mean I buy a VIP membership? Of course not! It’s super overpriced! To put it into perspective, a year of VIP is $40 which is about as much as a good quality Nintendo DS game. Not only does the Nintendo DS game have more to offer (offense intended) you also get to play it forever. It’s one payment of $40, not $40 a year like Magic Piano. Who in their right mind would buy a VIP subscription to Magic Piano? So, that’s off the table. I should just play the songs I have and get over it right? Or maybe save up smoola to get more. First of all, smoola takes forever to earn. I’ve been playing this game on and off for years and I got enough smoola to buy one song ONCE. Not to mention I had accumulated a lot of smoola at a point (probably over 100) and I opened the app one day and it was gone! The only reason I gave this app any stars at all is because if you’re playing one of the few decent songs you can, it’s really really fun. But it’s a terrible app that begs for money from us and lost what made it so great.
Loving it, just one problem...
by iiStar_Strxckxx on 2019/07/05 17:00
Ok so I’m really loving this game, but there is just one problem that is just so annyoying. So I was just finishing up medium level on Colors by Halsey, and then I decided to try hard, so all was well the first few seconds, UNTIL... this popped up, “Why is magic piano paused?? Go to settings and turn off multitasking so your screen doesn’t slide off to another app! “ And so I went to setting and went to general, Like is showed in the picture, and I couldn’t find it! It wasn’t there! So I went back to magic piano to see the picture, and it was the exact thing I did! I couldn’t find “ MULTITASKING” So I just went back to the song, thinking it was just a one - time thing, and the NEXT TIME I press 4 finger it pops up again! It was so annoying! So I ignored it. And then a few peachy notes later it pops up again! Ughh it was so annoying! And so I finishing the song, and because of the pop up thing, I only got 2 stars!! But other than that, this game is awesome! Now I know that this review is just going to be one of the other reviews, lost in the ocean of reviews, but PLEEEEAAASE! Try to fix this.
Timing....too slow...???!
by lilpkrmnstr on 2018/04/30 04:47
I love this app, but the one thing I can't stand is when it tells me I'm being too slow.. but I'm trying to play the song the way it sounds.. And it always seems to want to rush me. I'd rather be able to play the song the way it feels in the way it sounds rather than having the app tell me I'm playing too slow. Messing up is one thing, but having a longer pause at the end of that set because you're playing it with feeling is another. I think that should be fixed. Make room for a real or with feeling pause. Also.. I LOVE the community section. However, I think people just messing around makes it hard to find the people who have actually created an amazing piece. That's frustrating. If you want the quality of the app, you pay for it. Have a passion for piano music, you pay for it. People who love it will pay for it. I would love to get rid of the “junk” on it... the songs people create that make no sense. They should have to be approved or something. Keep the crap out.
UUGGHH SO ANNOYING!! ADS?!?
by Pookeylookey on 2018/10/31 12:14
So many ads!! I know it helps the company, but there’s so much to were I get out of the game because of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game (kinda addicted) but I redownloaded the game the other day, and I don’t remember the game having so much ads. I mean cmon. I get on the app, ad, when I pick a song that I’ve already watched 40 million ads for, ANOTHER AD, and even when I get done playing a song..guess what, ANOTHER AD!!! cmon smule, where’s the game that I enjoyed without getting all these stupid ads. Plus, it’s like the same ads everyday. I’m okay with ads (because every game has them). Buttttt when they interrupt EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY, then I’m either gonna delete the game I love, or give y’all a review and hope y’all address and fix the problem. :) Yes, I understand y’all benefit from ads, but surely for how many people play yalls apps, and how many ads y’all have on a game in general, I think y’all are good on money. Please Please PlEaSe fix the PrObLeM!!!!! LOVE AND KIND, LAYTHEN!!! :) P.s- I love the game, and the games y’all produce. But, it’s basically all the stikin ads that I have to deal with just on this game. I hope y’all can fix this. Have a great day! :)
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
In Game Currency
by bubblez110123 on 2019/09/13 01:01
Ive had this game for about 5 years. I have had 3 accounts and all has been good. Though, i wouldn’t recommend you download this app. Here are a few reasons why. 1)you cant watch adds to get in game currency to buy new songs, but the past 2 years if you get an add that has a demo at the end ( and if the x isnt tinted grey ) you wont get your currency. I kid you not i watched 20 mins of adds and got 5 (= 1 add) its bs. 2) the game feels rather single player even though its an online game. While yes you can play other peoples songs ( and their copies) you cant do anything else. It would be nice to at least have a comments section. 3) copies are on about every song. And they do absolutely nothing about it. Now the copies of their 75 smoola ( igc ) songs are completely fine by me! But the countless copies of one persons hard work is ridiculous. The one person who tapped their screen for hours get no credit because there isn't even a way to find the original creator. Overall this game is a money scheme. They want your money so you can progress and you unlock new songs to progress. But at least its a reasonably fun money scheme!
AD AND BUG/GLITCH INFESTED APP!!
by Alcrex0260 on 2017/11/15 03:31
Used to like the game but maybe if they added an instant replay feature pianist can see where they might have messed up, and also there’s a bug or glitch that makes the songs I purchased with smolda coins via search, the only songs that show up in the “my songs” section is the songs that the app created. It’s really annoying when I can’t play the songs I spent a long time watching ads to get. And also sometimes I sit through a 30-50 second ad and I don’t even get the coins for it, um..... WHATTTTT?!?!?!? I used to really like this game. I played it for hours without any ads and it was fun and enjoyable and all bugs were squashed, but now we have ads around every corner, bug nests everywhere and ads with sexual content, um excuse me but (no offense intended to Smule) who do you think you are?! It’s an app rated 4+ so there should be content that’s appropriate for 4+ aged people. UNACCEPTABLE!! How would you feel, developers of Smule, if your child was playing an app and encounters an ad containing sexual content? I would feel like a bad parent! And if more and more people feel the app makes them feel like bad parents, they’ll delete the app and you’ll loose money! Then what will you do? Just think about that.
Good but some problems
by doglover828 on 2020/01/11 01:12
I love this game! I think it’s very creative the way they made you play the piano. I have never seen a game like this before it’s so unique! But there is always a but sooooo story time! So I was trying to get some more money ( I forgot the name of the money in the game) so I watched an add to get some money and I looked at where my money was and it stayed the same! But I thought it was a little glitch so I tried again and the same thing happened! I rebooted my iPad several times but it still never gave me more money. I got very frustrated with this problem. Please work on it. (or is it my iPad...) ok next problem ( I know too many problems and and it’s getting annoying but just stay with me PLEASE!) ok so the next thing that happened was I finally got enough money to get a new song. And I picked the song I wanted but then when I looked back at my songs it wasn’t there! Please work on that problem (or is it just my iPad again?!) ok so the point is GET THIS GAME I know I complained a lot but I would still get this game if I were you so yeah. PEACE OUT
Major Problem (developers please fix)
by pink whale dolphin on 2019/06/12 14:07
At first I really loved this game but lately I have been having a huge problem with it. If you own this game and only have a few songs you won’t see this problem as much but I own around 20 songs. Not all of the songs I have bought, won, or chosen from “free songs” show up in “my songs” many of them are still in free songs and some of them don’t show up anywhere. Now that is a problem but wait there is an even bigger one. Some times a song that I own doesn’t show up in “my songs” or in “free songs” it shows up in “suggested songs” or in “editor’s choice” (even when I search my songs this happens) it says I own it and the stars are even fulled in. Well I go to click on it because obviously I have payed for that song and I want to play it but it says that I am blank many smoolas short like I have to buy it again. WHAT? I ALREADY PAYED FOR IT ONCE I HAVE TO PAY FOR IT AGAIN? This is really frustrating. If it wasn’t for this major problem I would give this app five or four stars if it didn’t have this problem, it is really fun and I love playing the songs. But please fix this major problem I want my songs back.
Disappointing
by uwu 4 u on 2019/01/13 04:55
Ideally this would be a great app. It was fun for a bit but there is really not that much you can do without spending money. Smoola, their currency, is soooo hard to obtain. There are these achievements you can get but after the first few easy ones you realize that the rest are impossible to get. You have to play more songs to get the achievements that get you smoola, but to be able to play those songs you have to buy them with smoola. Either way you need smoola and the only way to get it is to buy it with real money. There are tons of ads just to play song that last only one or two minutes. Whenever I saved up enough smoola ( a rare occurrence) I was so happy because that means I could get a song. So over the course of the few years that I have had this app, I have been able to buy ONLY FOUR SONGS! (I don't use this app that often, maybe once a week or a bit more). I also wish there was a way to preview the songs before you buy them. For two out of my four purchased songs, I have been disappointed with the way they sound. This app would be so much better if you didn't have to spend so much money to enjoy it.
Great Game... but also some honesty
by lSIRsmokeALOTl on 2018/03/02 20:42
Alright, so I would like to start by stating that I absolutely love this game as a game, but I've come across some shady business practices from Smule considering their billing agreement. I did the one week trial, loved it and then paid for another. I decided I needed to not pay for the subscription for personal finance reasons, so I canceled my VIP membership. Low and behold they charged me for VIP the next week, so I removed PayPal from my payment methods on iTunes. Funny thing is, even after cancelling the subscription and removing PayPal as a payment method they continued to charge me for four more consecutive weeks. I had to claim fraudulent charges through my bank to get the payments to stop. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or shady business practices, but make sure you manually stop the recurring charges through your bank if you want to stop the VIP membership. That is honestly the only reason I gave this game three stars. If not for that singular incident I would definitely have rated it 5 stars. Great game! Love it! But I'm going to be uninstalling it after my experience.
Scam
by Cchhoollee on 2018/07/19 03:07
I used to love this app, but now it’s just disappointing. I opened the app for the first time in about a year yesterday, and all of the thirty something songs I had ever purchased and played were gone. Even a song that I bought last night was gone by this morning. It’s pretty much impossible to get coins without purchasing them with real money, and I wasn’t going to spend that much time watching ads. Another horrible change that I’ve noticed is the increase in ads. A year ago, all of the songs in the free section used to actually be free. But now, you have to watch an ad before playing one. Even if you want to change the difficulty, you have to watch an ad. Ads never used to be apparent in the app unless you watched them for coins, but now they pop up after you play almost any song, even if you have actually purchased it. After reading a lot of reviews, I am positive that everything that is happening to me is not a unique glitch, and is probably a scam put into place by Smule so they can earn more money. Don’t waste your time trying to make good use of this app. It’s not worth it. There are plenty of other much better versions out there.
So. Many. Freaking. Ads.
by LittleNerdyElephant on 2018/01/11 01:03
Ugh, BEFORE and AFTER I play a song, I have to watch an ad. I can’t X out of it, because then I just close out of the app and lose my progress, and end up repeating what I tried and failed to do before. I give it three stars, mainly because it is a great app overall, with fun songs and options, xp points after every song you play that you save to level up, rewards, etc. I think it would be such a better game if there weren’t as many advertisements! Also, almost everything is too pricey. It is hard to get through the game without purchasing something. There are only eight free songs I know of, without being a VIP, and once you complete those, you kinda have to just replay them until you level up and get more smoola to buy a song. I think this game has potential, but please add in more free songs and lower the amount of ads I see, because honestly it is super annoying, and I want to delete it but I would lose all my progress. If you make these simple changes, my star rating will go up, and I guarantee others will too.
Time for a change!
by On the second day on 2017/08/10 18:03
I've had Smule for about three years now and have noticed major changes in the downward direction, sometimes I ask myself why do I still play....why because it is fun after you get through the extremely loud commercials. Some commercials can last as long as 30 seconds and they are now using commercials with sexual orientation and I heard the F word this week on a new commercial. I hope Smule doesn't think only adults use this app because I know several minors that use this. Usually you have to listen to two commercials before playing a song which is tiresome. As for the new composers feature I personally do not care for it because all it does is make about 20 songs of the same song and when you finally get a free song it'll give you a duplicated song that you already have, just made by someone else. it takes a long time sometimes to get a free song even when it asks you would you like a free song today?... and then they don't give you one! I will not pay an annual membership to play this game. Smule needs to get it together and make this app fun for everyone.
The glitch😤
by I❤️EDM on 2018/06/23 19:57
Overall I think this app is fun and I like that there’s a ton of songs to choose from. But I’m writing this review because of one problem in particular I’m having. When I play on the hard level, (using up to four fingers) often for some unknown reason it will keep pausing even though I do NOT hit the pause button. This happens a lot now (sometimes ten times a song...no exaggeration!) Also it’s started to glitch out right into other apps when I’m right in the middle of a song. It’s getting very annoying. Please fix this! (A month later) Something just popped up on my screen on how to make it stop pausing right in the middle so many times of every song. I did it and it worked. Thanks! I’ll bump it up to four stars now. I’d have a better chance of giving it five stars if there weren’t soooo many ads (An ad after every song you play and sometimes you’re required to watch an ad before you can even begin playing a song) and if the songs didn’t cost so much.
This is my favorite game in the whole world
by Wifey290 on 2018/01/13 08:16
This is the best game I have ever played in my life I play it all night an day literally I am obsessed with this game. When I saw it I thought it was going to be boring but I played it and I said to myself don’t judge a book by its cover especially this game. This game is not joking this is lit this is fire this is omg I can’t even explain the whole story like it is life keep doing what your doing but I am about to go buy the microphone game you guys made like please make more like it is life to me o ya I forgot to say who I am and what my name is I am Ailani Thomas I am nine years old and I am in 4 th grade I never ever in my life got left back or sent back if you don’t now there to different thing left back is going to the same grade but left back means they but you I the same grade because you did not learn as much as the other kids I but sorry for bringing school up I just Love school because I get to learn 😘😍😃😀😅😄😁☺️🙂😇😉😌😏🤔🤗
AWESOMENESS, MOSTLY‼️‼️🎹🎼🎶🎵
by Sookie words and more on 2017/08/18 20:23
Magic Piano is SO fun but also SO too funny‼️‼️I'm reading reviews and SMH!! Many if not most of us are far from Bach or Mozart but Magic Piano gives us an opportunity to at least feel like we can actually play a piano!! Realistically, though, NOT!! Now I hear ya about these darn, often occurring, loud ads, they are quite troublesome but at least you can get smules but 1 is not equal to each ad in my opinion. Now granted I love it when I play a song and people in the same room can recognize and identify the song I'm actually trying to play!! I did learn much from reading the reviews in regards to options within the app. such as you can practice, pause, play songs people like us have composed vs. actual composers and so on so I think I can enjoy the experience even better. It's always a plus and boost to the old ego when you play well enough to to unlock more songs and level up!! Thumbs up for me👍🏼👌🏽😜👏🏼👏🏼🎹🎧🎤
No longer any good
by Lvsdolls on 2019/06/24 01:46
I played this app when it was first available. I loved it! There were a few ads plus you could earn Smula by watching an ad. It was reasonable. Now! You have to watch an ad before and after the few free songs available AND the songs that are mine, that I bought, now have an ad after playing but before u get your points. If you don’t watch the ad you lose your points. Earning Smula is insane! The number of ads involved just to get points towards a level that when complete gives you 1 Smula. Any song to buy is 25 Smula (to put it in perspective). I don’t recommend this game or any games thru this company. They are greedy and underhanded. They used to be one of my favorite and trusted companies. I hope this company realizes that no one is going to pay u for ads if u have no one playing your games. You seriously need to revamp how your doing your games before your greed puts you out of business!!! It’s not like there’s no competition with other similar games!! DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME. Be prepared to spend 90% of your time watching ads if you try out this game. The single star I gave is a tribute for the way this game used to be.
Im so bitter
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2018/08/02 04:03
I’m so incredibly disappointed in this app. I used to have it a long time ago and I loved it SO MUCH. it was so soothing and I would play it every night before I went to sleep. But that was on my old iPad, and now it’s incompatible with the app. I had never played it with my phone cause I thought the screen would be too play to play properly (I was right), so I never got it. Then I saw an ad for it and I thought “that would be fun to try again!” WRONG. I’m so mad. The first thing it’s greets me with is “you wanna but a membership that’s way overpriced?”. Then after that I tried to play a song and was bombarded with SO MANY ADS!! Also, I tried to play a song from the little mermaid that had the voice along with it, and it WAS NOT synced up at all!! I used to play the ones with the voice all the time, so I know how it works. I wasn’t doing it wrong. When did this app become such a sell out?!? Literally like 3/4th of the app is all ads. It’s completely ridiculous. I’m so disappointed and frustrated. I just wanted that soothing experience again. Listen Smule, you don’t need all this crap to sell your app. You’re just making people mad. Please give up back what we want.
>:(
by micraftisdabest:) on 2020/04/25 15:13
Alright, so I remembered this app from when I was about 3 years old. My brother had it on his tablet, so I would always ask to play it. Hey, at least back then it was good! But now it’s gone REALLY down hill. There’s an ad every time I finish a song. Then when I go to play a different song, there’s another ad! It’s super annoying when I go to play songs! Also, there is a glitch. When I go to get free Smoola by watching an ad, it doesn’t make the count go up! If there’s a demo after the ad it doesn’t go up, but if there is no demo it will go up. So I basically waste 5 minutes trying to get some more Smoola by watching ads. So maybe try to get the ads WITHOUT demos. Because every single ad I get, there’s always a demo. That’s fine after playing a song, but not when I get free Smoola. It’s really annoying wasting my time which I could spend on better things watching ads. So try to fix this glitch please! Other than that, it’s still kinda good. You can still get songs, and I love composing my own songs, so it’s kinda good. Thank you for reading.
Helpful ideas!!!!
by JHONOSAURUS REX on 2018/05/16 01:29
I think that this is a very fun and creative app, but only when people stop copying the same song from each other. The sad thing is that they aren’t even the right song. For example, I wanted to play the song “Every time we Touch” by cascada and when I search it up, I see that all of the songs say cascada on them. But when I listen to them, they aren’t even remotely close to the actual song. I would love it if you could add something to prevent that since it is very annoying. Aside from that, I think it would be a good idea for you to add a function that allows you to transpose songs that you have downloaded on iTunes for the piano. So basically, if I have a song on iTunes that isn’t on the app, I could select the function and it would transpose itself to match the app. I think that it would be a good idea, and I think that it will make the app more enjoyable. Overall, it is a very fun app and I would like to see more happen with it. Thank you!
Too many Ads now! Poor song selection
by Ashlish on 2017/10/16 04:12
I'm finally irritated enough to write this review. This use to be my favorite app, hands down. So fun and included challenges and current music. However, now there are so many ad disruptions. Playing a new tune, first an ad....playing a song you have already paid for, first an ad.... playing a free song made by another user, first an ad. It's ridiculous. Now, I barely play it, unless I have time and patience to sit through five ads in less than ten minutes. Total sell out move, btw Smule. I wouldn't mind buying it, but a monthly fee is charged with an auto subscription, or you have to sign up for a slippery trial offer. Not a good deal. Also, there use to be new songs made by Smule that were free. Now, it's the same songs over and over made by different users-Chasing Cars, Gravity Falls Theme, Hokage's Death, Hallelujah, What a Wonderful World.....seriously! It's been those songs for at least a year now. Change it up a bit and I don't mean different Smule user composers. That comes off pretty cheap and makes me wonder what I would get from allowing you to charge my card every month if I signed up.
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
It is okay, BUT could be better!!!
by Twinkies5everrr on 2018/02/16 05:58
I believe that Magic Piano is a good app. It is fun and creative.., and I really like the fact that people have the opportunity to compose songs ^-^... however, there are some huge problems about this app -.-... To begin with, there are SERIOUSLY WAYYYYY too many advertisements. (No exaggeration) There is an ad EVERY single time I finish a song. Also, when I select a free song (Or even one of mY songs!¡!) to play, an ad/video pops up. I think this is very annoying and makes me a lottt less interested to play the game. Another problem is that since a lot of the songs are not free, it is really hard to buy songs when you barely have any smoolas. It is so hard to get smoolas because (i don't know if this is just me) every time i complete those free offers to get smoolas, it NEVER works. Back in the olden days where the compose magic piano update was long gone, the offers would actually work and reward me... Magic Piano was not that bad a while ago, but now, its progress is going downhill :(
Isn’t worth it if you don’t pay VIP
by tessmelane on 2019/11/01 06:24
I’ve used this app since 2012 and it’s definitely changed over the years. Before there were no adds and it was easier to gain Smoola. Now it’s really not worth playing if you aren’t going to pay for it, there is an INSANE amount of adds, and saving up money takes a while so it’s hard to get songs, at least the ones that aren’t VIP only anyways. I pay for the app and honestly it’s not that horrible in price if you’re going to actually spend time with it. There’s no adds and you can basically play whatever you want. I like that you can add whatever songs or search for literally anything from others who have added songs. For some reason or another (probably the lack of the plague of adds) the VIP version runs super smoothly in comparison and I haven’t experienced any glitching, which honestly surprises me. Basically, if you don’t want to pay for it save yourself the frustration. If you do, it’s a great app.
Not Sure What to Think
by BlitzyWolf on 2019/01/21 02:29
I grew up playing this and thought it was amazing. However, after deleting it after a few years and deciding to revisit a childhood memory...it most certainly disappointed me. The constant ads drive me insane whenever I play various songs of a relatively short duration. Not only that, but being able to afford the songs I wish to play is just depressing to look at without the means of spending money. Although I understand there must be ads and a reason to become a VIP to earn money, I don’t see a purpose strong enough to convince me to spend a penny on this app. On a different note, I’ve played this on my iPad and have found it exceedingly frustrating to attempt playing songs on a hard difficulty due to the four finger taps available during them, because it pauses the song and brings up a menu from the bottom about half of the times I try to play the four finger notes. I’m unsure why a pausing mechanic like that was implemented into the game due to inconvenience and how unnecessary it is. So, I highly doubt that I will return to using this app unless some of its serious issues are properly addressed.
Great app, but..
by Gohrikat on 2020/04/14 21:01
This app is truly amazing! So much fun and occupying, very easy and fun, and there are so many different songs to play. However, I sincerely wish that we did not have to watch so many ads. It gets annoying very fast, and it makes me not want to play. Another problem I have with this game is that you have to pay a lot of smoola for just one song. The songs get up to 75 smoola currently, and to get free smoola, you need to do things that some people can’t actually do. For example, you can connect to Facebook, which some people are unable to do because they don’t have Facebook. And there are a lot of children playing this game as well that are not allowed to have certain social media. Another thing is you can watch a 23 second ad for just 5 smoola. Its not very fun when all you can do at one point is watch ads for smoola and play all the free songs. (Which, in my opinion, are ever very fun.) This app would be absolutely amazing if we could do some easier things to get smoola.
Good game...needs improvement
by mashingpotatoV22 on 2019/06/16 16:28
I have been playing smule piano for a long time on and off, and I have realize the pros and cons of the game. Here are the pros... PROS: 1. Good music selection 2. Different piano sounds 3. Daily challenges + rewards For the most part smule has done a good job creating music and allowing others to do so too, but here are the cons..... CONS: 1. When let’s say you have an account and make a song inspired by another person’s song, you should be allowed to play it without having to buy it with smule coins, which brings me to the next con 2. There should be more opportunities to get smule coins then leveling up (which only gives you like 2 coins). When there are songs that cost 25 coins each, you should have more options to get coins than just watching the same video over and over again for 5 coins 3. Sometimes when I get in to the app (on iPhone and iPad) it just stops at the smule logo and I have to tap out and try it again. 4. And finally, when playing on an iPhone, it is sometimes hard to keep up on the singing piano mode because the 4 notes are hard to press. This meet mean I’m not the best digital piano player but I think amateur will understand Overall smule piano is a great game but it needs some improvements. And know that it was hard for me to come up with pros. And one last thing, can smule please change the singing on the ads for smule singing because man, they are so out of tune.😒🙏🏻
Amazing but a few cons
by 🐱Graystripe🐱 on 2019/12/24 16:29
Magic piano is amazing! I love to play it everyday and compose new songs. Considering I play the piano in real life, magic piano Is so much like that. But, there are a few cons for this game that should be fixed. 1) It’s so hard to get smoolas. Every song is at least 25 or 75 smoolas. Every time you level up, you always get one. 2) I love to compose song, but the problem is that once it is composed and published, you can’t play it anymore. You would need to spend 25 smoolas if you would want to. For your OWN SONG. 3) You can always listen to the song before playing it, but the problem is that you can’t listen to the whole song. So thanks to that, I spend 25 smoola on a song that WASN’T EVEN FINISHED! Besides all of this, it is fun 4) As a pianist, I actually enjoy this app, but what I don’t like is that every note is a quarter note. That is why some song don’t sound correct. Most song have half notes, eighth notes, whole notes, dotted half notes, and so on. So can you PLEASE fix that. 5) it’s hard to keep your songs. There was this song that was given to me as a gift when I first joined Magic Piano, and now it wants me to pay for its access. I should have kept it, but nooo, now they took it away from me. There is this other song I was given free, and now they took the access away from it too Please fix these if you can. Also, keep up the good work.
Not worth the time
by Hunter(Soda_Pressed) on 2019/07/14 18:31
It’s pretty fun, and I don’t really mind the excessive amount of ads, I know you need to get money somehow. But my complaints are that first of all, there is very few chances to earn Smoola (or Smula, or however it’s spelled). I don’t feel like signing up for some subscription to pay for an app on my iPod, so if I want to get a new song I have to use the in-game currency. It’s extremely hard to just accumulate the currency over time, so I tried watching the ads to get 5 more Smoola, but nothing happened and I didn’t receive any money. I watched an ad, and the number of Smula I already had showed a loading sign, but then disappeared and I still had the same amount I did before. Usually I wouldn’t really care, after all, it’s just a game and I doesn’t really matter. But I really wanted to play this one song, and besides, I watch so many ads all the time, that if i got 5 Smula every time I watched one, I’d be rolling in cash. Another issue is how half the songs are only for VIPs. Again, I’m not going to pay real money just to play a song I already know how to play on a real piano. But of course, you don’t really read the reviews at all, do you? Dozens of people like me have the same complaints, and you haven’t changed a single thing. I’m wasting my time. Sorry for it being so long. Those are my thoughts. I say don’t get this app if you’re going to take it seriously. If you just want some relaxation, this is fine. Hunter
Sort of amazing.!
by iab524 on 2019/12/26 16:45
So this game is so FUN! It’s so addicting. But I have to list a few problems. 1. When I compose a song, (I made jingle bells) I have to pay smoola for my own song? I wanted to play it, for free. It’s confusing. Would the smoola go to me? Or will it go to a random player? Or will it go to you? My brain is confused. Also, I payed for the jingle bells once, and I have to pay again. And, smoola is hard to get. You should get 5-10 smoola each level up. 2. I have to watch an ad for every song I play. Okay, I get that you need someway to make money, but I play a lot of 30 sec to 20 songs and then I get a one minute ad? At least have the duration of the ad shorter or about the same length of the song. (This is my opinion, and I get it and I’m okay with if you can’t change the ads.) 3. The levels. It takes too long for you to level up. I really want to level up to get the classic guitar, it is relaxing, but I don’t want to pay like 495 smoola to get it. Also, it is the same for the Vocal Choir. It is so funny but I don't want to pay 495 smoola. Who has that much, anyway? (Not meant to be rude) I only have 17, haha! Like I said, this app is amazing. Please tale this as constructive criticism to make your app better. Sorry if this was offensive to you guys in any way. Thank you for making this app! Have a good day. Iab signing out!
Used to be great
by Pyrowo1f on 2018/03/20 20:53
This app used to be a lot of fun. I used to play it every day. Since then, I moved on, but I remembered the app and came back. It’s taken a turn for the worst now. You used to have an ad-free experience even as a free user. You could still watch ads to get the in-app currency, Smoola, so you could buy songs. I did this almost religiously day by day. You can still do this, too. However, now you also get an ad after every. Single. Song. And that’s assuming you own the song. If you don’t, you’ll need to watch an ad before you play the song, too. The composer feature is incredible, and the user created songs are wonderful. The fact that they only cost 25 Smoola a piece is awesome. The ability to share your performances with friends, family, and the world (through the in-app “World” feature and the Smule website) is cool, too. But the entire experience is completely ruined by the prevalence and disruptiveness of the endless ads. Unless, of course, you pay the subscription fee on a monthly, three month, or annual basis.
It’s great!!! But...
by Heggru on 2018/09/03 22:51
This is by far my favorite app of all time! But... it’s got a one thing that isn’t so great. when ever I try to watch an video to get more smoola, it lets me watch it but then doesn’t give me the smoola and I’ve tried over and over again but it still won’t work!!! And when ever I get free songs it says that I need to pay for them even after it lets me play them!!! And sooooo many of my favorite songs need VIP access and I don’t have the money for something a stupid as a couple of songs on an app!!! But I still love this app even when it kills me off of it repeatedly and sometimes forces me to delete it along with all the songs I’ve payed for!!! And don’t even get me stated on the freaking billions of ads!!!! They suckkkkk!!! And almost every time I mess up it either doesn’t say anything or says something completely different then what I did and I know what I did but it’s kinda annoying to have it not tell me.
It’s amazing a few fixes tho
by five stars girls on 2019/04/08 15:37
This game is absolutely amazing I love all of the songs they are difficult I like that.... But it could use a few fixes like it does freeze a lot that is a little bit annoying if you guys could fix that that would make my day also about the memberships why do all of every ones favorite song require a membership I am a little disappointed about that but it’s is still an amazing app a few another thing why is there so many pop ups after every song you have to either watch a video or see another pop up it is very annoying if you guys could fix it that would be great this app needs a few fixes but that’s ok because I still rated it 5 stars it is an amazing app I love it is addicting, fun, challenging, and I absolutely love it thanks for making this game such a successful game for every one😎😁😊🥳🤩
This app has gone downhill.
by Pinapplesonpizza on 2018/08/21 06:09
I used to thoroughly enjoy this app, but it has become consistently worse as time has gone on. There used to be occasional ads, which are understandable, as you do have to make money, but now there are ads before and after almost every song. In similar fashion, you used to be able to play your songs offline, however now, to foster more advertising, no doubt, you must be online to play. Songs you purchase also have developed a nasty tendency of disappearing from one’s list of songs, and are still playable without purchase if you search for them, however this is annoying when you just wish to scroll through yours songs and play one, and it disappeared without your knowing. There was a time I’d have rated this app 5 stars, but due to increasing problems that add up, I’m giving it 2. I’m going to keep it downloaded in case updates fix any of these problems, but for now I’m going to stop playing, so they don’t get advertising money that I don’t think they deserve off of me.
Some magic in magic piano smule
by sophieshopkins😊 on 2018/06/24 01:49
I used to not like this game at all. I was thinking about deleting the app last time I played, but when I played it again, some things changed. There is actually some songs I like that are free, but ads. When you click on a song to play, it says your free content will be available after this ad, and it’s really annoying. I’ve gotten used to it, but I feel like they should get rid of that. Tons of people are tired of ads on games, and maybe magic piano smule can get rid of the ads on this game. That would totally bring back a lot of people. I 85% of me thought it was a good idea to delete this app, but I’m lowering it to a 40% now because I’m kinda impressed. Also, it’s kind of cool how there’s a ton of options other than ads to get free smoola. And I like that it’s only 25 smoola for songs I like instead of like 50. But on the other hand, you don’t get much smoola at all when you level up. They should give you 5 smoola, not like two! I’ll give it one more stars than I did before.
AWESOME! Get it! its worth it!
by WaterAirFireEarth on 2018/07/13 02:05
Okay so i have probably had this app for like three years or something and i just recently came back to it and fell in love with it. and theres all these bad reviews like “ Oh theres too many adds” or “They all cost coins to get them!” Witch is bull because all games have adds try to think of one game on you're phone or iPad right now that doesn't have adds? Yeah you couldn't think of any could you. and its not like theres That many either. and for the people who say “oh well most of the songs cost coins!” Seriously? Theres a get more coins section and all you have to do is watch an add and u get enough coins for you're new song there. all i'm trying to say is this a great app and anyone who is thinking about getting it get it! because theres no hurt in giving it a try and if u don't like it then just delete it.
This is not fair
by Frankiew0415060 on 2017/09/23 14:25
Ok so my 6 year old brother had my phone and he knows everything about it so he added his finger print to the phone and I had the Touch ID for my Apple ID and I found out I was getting these charges I didn’t know what they were at first but then I checked it out and saw charges from magic piano I haven’t even played this game in like 2 months so when I saw I got charges I thought that it was a mistake but I called my card and they told me that about a month ago I applied for a subscription on the app magic piano like I said I haven’t played this game I’m forever the only person that played it was my little brother and since he had my finger print he purchased the subscription and no one knew he might’ve thought it was free because when the purchase screen shows up it says free trial key word free so my brother saw that and pressed the button he saw the fingerprint sign and but his finger this is not fair at all we didn’t even know we were being charged and we weren’t even playing the game this is really unfair and I will never download this game again

Not enough free stuff
by Manny bug Minecraft on 2020/05/31 21:56
This game could be really fun and enjoyable I didn’t plan it for about a month and I’m addicted however there’s a lot of stuff you can do for free on the game there’s about six or seven songs plus the one that you can get the beginning you have to buy a lot of songs with in game currency but you don’t get a lot of in game currency like whenever you level up you only get one simoleon and songs costs 25 to 40 each which I think is ridiculous I recently discovered the VIP area and let’s just say there’s probably 200 songs that you have to pay for to get which is ridiculous I’m deleting the app right now because I can’t find any join anymore without being able to do much of anything in the game so it’s fine but I wouldn’t recommend it if you don’t want to pay
okay...THIS IS AMAZINGGGGGGGGGG
by hadley the slime lover on 2020/05/31 16:15

Good but slow...
by rainbow unicorn queen on 2020/05/30 23:34
This game is really fun! You can play music on the piano on a ipad or phone! But...it stopped working. I was really upset and not happy... I would wait like two minutes to wait for it to load when i open the app... IT WOULD NOT LOAD!!! It rarely works its been doing this for a while. 🙁if the creator of this app sees this review PLEASE FIX IT
Why are there extra notes?
by yerocsc2 on 2020/05/30 10:36
This is stupid. I’m trying to make a song and there are extra notes that I don’t need.
Bug issue
by Ranky Doodle on 2020/05/30 10:01
This game is a must-have. I have this app since 2015. The problem is, watching Ads to earn Smoola is glitchy now. After watching an Ad and then exit out, I did not earn any Smoola. Please fix that.
To many ads
by happycustamer on 2020/05/29 16:04
If I have to watch an ad to play a song that they are letting me play for free, that makes sense but after that another ad? Really?! It’s ridiculous! Even after songs I do own! The app would be five stars if it wasn’t for that!
It was fine at first....
by moca's bread on 2020/05/28 22:38
I needed like 5 coins to get this song I really wanted so I watched an ad, but the ad didn’t give me any coins and I tried again and still didn’t give me any. And then I don’t login for a single day and all the songs I got were gone. Kinda ruined the game for me
Changes needed
by Simply_Queen_ on 2020/05/28 17:51
I honestly don’t “play” this game anymore. I do, however, make and listen to songs. One thing that’s pissing me really bad is the “open in composer” option. Yes, you thought you fixed the “100 copies of the same stinkin song” issue.... but people are still copying songs and getting the original composer’s likes and buys!!! For example: I made an arr. of “When I Am Older” from Frozen 2 that was decent. I only have 19 buys. Some jerk made an obvious negative change to the song(added notes reminiscent of slamming your hands on the keyboard) and he has 100+ buys... FROM MY SONG!!!! So few people make REAL improvements to songs through this feature that I’m DEMANDING that you REMOVE IT!!! Also add the default ability to have a time stamp for when a song was last posted/edited and a search filter for most recently published, most popular, and (if you never remove the copy ability) originals(not “inspired” songs. Please act on these suggestions if you wanna stay in business!!!
It’s so hard to just get smoola and songs
by your ganes biggest fan :) on 2020/05/28 04:04
Whenever I try and watch videos to get smoola points or coins or whatever it never works. It works like 30% of the time, which is horrible. Fix this. You’re better than this. Cmon. (If you saw my face you’d see the visible disappointment 😔)
Annoying
by djaritzen on 2020/05/27 22:42
I love the game but it’s not allowing me to get coins
Man I’m disappointed that they wouldn’t give me more coins to play
by fukie123 on 2020/05/27 22:03
I hate this app so much aaaaaaaarge i’m sooooooo mad i hate that Jesus Christ man geez
Trash game

A terrible app
by bvhbjbnbgjvlvjv on 2020/05/26 23:40
You have to use tokens to play songs
Review
by CreepyPastaEmo911 on 2020/05/25 20:09
I love this game. Except the fact that, when I go to get more Smule coins by watching videos. (Five coins=One Video) I have watched 13 videos but haven’t gotten any money.
What happened
by Dawn19999 on 2020/05/25 01:14
This app used to be a good app but even on difficulty level easy it is too hard it needs one tap practice back the songs are becoming way too hard for people to enjoy them!!☹️☹️
Ads for smoola a not working
by BabyFwogs on 2020/05/24 22:22
First of all, there’s basically no other way to make a more than one smoola without watching a bunch of ads. 25 for a cheaper one, and you have to either watch 5 videos, or get to level 25. That’s complete bull. Especially when the whole thing you’re advertising is the songs on it. But when I DO watch the videos (or try to) it just doesn’t give me the smoola. I don’t want to play the same songs over and over again to level up to get ONE smoola. Please either make it easier to get smoola, or make the songs cheaper.
It’s good BUT-
by thank you K on 2020/05/24 19:59
It won’t give me my Smoles when I Watch a add it’s a good game though
One little thing....
by MISS🌸🌺🌹🌷 on 2020/05/24 15:10
I ❤️❤️ this game but every time I try to watch a video to try to get smula it doesn’t give me any... at all which is really really annoying so please try to fix that developers I love your game but if I’m trying to get smulas by a an ad I would expect to get smulas so thank you love this game have a nice day. 😁
Amazing app! (Aside from not getting rewards)
by fivcbyfivc on 2020/05/24 06:14
I’ll start off by saying I’ve had this app since I was in middle school. I’ve paid for all-access passes plenty of times over the years. It’s super easy to use, a great way to kill time and it’s down right fun. It’s cool to play songs without the frustrating aspects of learning them on a real piano. The interface for creating your own music is super easy and in-depth. I’ve had a lot of fun transcribing my favorite songs onto the app. I love the feature especially since I’m a pianist but, given my living situation, I’m unable to have a physical piano/keyboard. Now, the only real negative experience I’ve had is regarding the ads and smoola. This probably started happening a few years back and I just thought my app, specifically, was being glitchy. When I click on the plus in the bottom corner to watch an ad to get 5 free smoola, I never get the rewards. What’s frustrating is when you really, really enjoy an app that you use nearly every single day, only for it to cheat you out of the only reward available. I’ve stopped using this app for awhile, assuming the problem would be acknowledged and fixed. But, here I am, years later with the same problem. Considering the fact that I’ve put quite a bit of money into the app, it’s honestly super frustrating having put so much time in, only for it to basically force me to spend money just to get new songs. Don’t get me wrong, I really do like the app. But being able to play the same old songs I’ve had for years makes me wanna delete it. After this long review, here’s a summary. The app is super responsive, doesn’t lag much, can really help you de-stress from the day, is unbelievable addicting, and is a super fun non-traditional piano app. It’s honestly just a minor bug but I figure the longer that my review is, the more likely I am to be acknowledged. If not... Well, I tried giving useful feedback 🤷‍♀️
I don’t get money
by billy goat 9000 on 2020/05/24 03:29
When I get an achievement I get no money when I connect my face book no money when I watch video no money fix this!!!!
Too many ads
by But am I Wright? on 2020/05/23 10:21
Toooo many ads. After each song. And long unskippable ones at that.
I love this game but one problem
by I love cookies🍪🍪🍪🍪 on 2020/05/22 23:31
I love this game ok. now don’t read this and think this is a bad game but it here is one thing the creators need to work on. The smoola thing you can get some by watching an ad. I did that and and I didn’t get anything so I waisted my time trying to get coins because I wanted to play a song I liked
Sensoring Issues
by LexiGamerGirl on 2020/05/22 19:21
Well I used to love this game, but now I can’t play without it telling me “too many fingers” and playing wrong notes. It’s so unpleasant, and I know I’m not playing with too many. I mean, what’s the big deal with that?
I used to like this...
by And I Ooooooopppp on 2020/05/22 17:22
I use to play this app when I was little and now this app is just driving me crazy. I mean ever time I finish a song that I played there would always be an ad. Now I believe there weren’t ads after EVERY song a few years ago!?!
Why is this so hard?
by Everyhingsbs on 2020/05/22 17:07
This is so hard, what happened to the 1 finger practice?Magic Tiles is a tiny bit easier than this. Please add back the 1 finger practice!!!!! 😕
Needs Improvements
by Anne of Belany🏄🏼‍♀️ on 2020/05/22 00:56
I love lots of things about this game, it has fun and popular songs, you can choose different levels of difficulty, and it gives you a chance to discover new songs! But a few things would make people like it more and want to keep playing it: 1. When you level up, you should get something like 5 or 10 coins, instead of just 1 coin, because songs cost so much of them. Either that or the cost of the songs themselves should go down a bit. 2. You shouldn’t have to search for songs you bought, they should be in the My Music category. The first song I bought, showed up in the My Music category only AFTER I played it. If I wanted to find and play it after re-opening the game, I had to search for it. 3. Leveling up shouldn’t be so hard early on. If you want people to play the game, they need to feel like they’re making progress, at least in the first 10 or so levels. 4. You should get bigger rewards for achievements, since it is so difficult to complete them. More coins or a new song or a new piano type would make players work harder for them. Hope this is helpful. I like this game, but it could easily be better, with the makers of the game still benefiting from their awesome creation!!
Have to fix the smoola ads
by Ntran008 on 2020/05/21 19:03
I love this game it's fun it has on my favorite songs but I can't play those songs without smoolas and the easiest way to get it is by watching ads but the ads don't work. When I watch it the ad to Get some smoolas it doesn't work please fix this ad right away then I'll give it a five star rating. please and thank you.
stuck with the same few songs
by YeriTheUnicorn on 2020/05/21 04:04
I cant get any new songs because the adds don't work and literally the only way to get coins is to lvl up which takes wayyy longer than it did in the past. I'm at lvl 12 and I have 10 songs but I wont be able to get new songs until lvl 15 for coins. fix it.
Not worth your time
by ppreze on 2020/05/20 18:43
I used to love this app and in theory I still do. But now you literally can’t play anything without paying. Also side it but 9.99 a week or a month whatever brute charging either way it’s not worth it. I tried watching videos and wasted 3 min of my time bc no coins were added. Published my own thing and let me play it once before trying to get me to pay for VIP bc I can no longer play something I composed. Literally an ad if you click on anything. Sick of it. So sad to come back to this game only to not even be able to play it. Going to download the games they show me during ads and delete this one.
Problem with smoola
by Kiki popular lemon on 2020/05/20 05:12
I love this app and I have had it for quite some time, but whenever I do the watch a video get 5 smoola it lets me watch the video then doesn’t give me the smoola. In the passed it would let me get as much as I wanted. It’s kinda hard to keep interest in this app since it takes a really long time to earn smoola.
Fun but...
by mee-mer on 2020/05/20 03:24
It is fun but watching ads won’t give smoola
Well...

I did the 7 day free trial and played smile everyday for hours, but then it expired. When it did, I could barely play anything, I couldn’t earn enough smoola to have fun, and... WTH?!?!?! WHY ON EARTH DOES IT COST TEN DOLLARS FOR ONE WEEK OF THE ALL AXCESS?!?! It is ridiculous! 😤 It was sad when I had to delete the app, I “was” literally obsessed with this game a day ago, but when you can’t do anything on your favorite game, it isn’t exactly your favorite anymore 😞 Note for the creators: please do somthing about this problem, I’m pretty sure most players have experienced this. At least add more free songs, or don’t, I probably won’t be playing the game anymore :/
Game is glitchy and a ripoff
by trustworthysource(sophiac) on 2020/05/19 22:33
I have many complaints about this app. 1. The in-app purchases are a rip off. How could this app have the audacity to charge $99.99 for one year of unlimited music? 2. You don’t get Smule coins for watching ads. I have watched several advertisements to earn Smule coins because it advertises that you can get coins by doing this, but it never gives me my coins. 3. It makes you pay to play songs after you play them too much. I played a song from the movie Moana ONCE and once I tried to play it again, it said I had to pay, even though it was already under the list of songs that were in my songbook. 4. Daily challenges are fake. I see the same players winning everyday. You can’t make the leaderboard even if you play the song perfectly. 5. Composer setting is terribly glitchy. I click to place one note and it adds two, sometimes three of the same note when I only want to place one. 6. Makes you pay to play other players songs with Smule coins. They should not be making money off of other people’s music. That’s just shallow. 7. The songs you make on composer get all messed up when you publish them. The rhythm of the song becomes completely different and it sounds awful.
Needs fixed
by Specifex on 2020/05/19 05:41
The offer wall and watching videos doesn’t give you the smoola. Have to pay real money to get anything since all the free options do not work. I watch all the videos 100% through and wait till I can safely exit out and I’ve done this 10 times and I still only have the 3 I started with. Rating is 1 star until this is fixed or I am told how to solve this.
Too many ads, smoola glitch.
by Must tune in! on 2020/05/18 13:25
I absolutely hate this game!!!!!! There are wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too many ads. Even though I’m not vip or whatever the amount of ads probably makes this app lose a lot of players. Also I want my smoola when watching a video but it doesn’t give it to me. Please fix it.
I LOVE this game! But one suggestion
by Mama688479 on 2020/05/18 13:21
I like this game. You have a million songs to play. You can even make your own songs. However, I want to make a song but I can’t just log in. Can you change how you make an account from an email to make an account like you would on Roblox? Anyway, this game still the best!
Smoola problem
by 😀😐😠 on 2020/05/17 19:29
Whenever I watch an ad or earn an achievement that usually gives me smoola it won’t give me anything. I’ve been stuck at four smoola for a while now and I don’t think I’ll be able to get any more than that.
Horrible, needs changes
by Jehovah's Wittnesses on 2020/05/16 16:06
First of all, the app wont even open. I tried for 30 minutes, and got bored of it. that is why, i don't like this game. please help me. Otherwise, the game songs are pretty good, (and i know this because my sister also has this game), but you could add some more. Please let me get in, and thank you
Watching videos for smoola

by AmazingFluffyUnicorn on 2020/05/12 23:37
I can’t publish my songs it keeps on saying “sorry try again later” and it’s been doing that for a whole forking week. Whenever I look at ads for smoola it doesn’t GIVE ME ANY so WHAT THE FORK. What kind of bullshirt is this such a dumb app. Also I can’t give live performances or share any wut is this dumb bullshirt??? 🍴🍴🍴👕👕👕
Freezes
by sharkee69 on 2020/05/12 13:40
Had this app for years now it is freezing and messes up constantly after a update
What happened??
by Al085 on 2020/05/12 02:50
This used to be a great app for unwinding and relaxing, but now you spend 50% of your time on the app watching ads??? It's understandable for the free songs but even songs that you've purchased?? That's ridiculous. After playing every song you're forced to watch a 30+ second ad! It literally changes the entire experience from relaxing to annoying. Sometimes you watch and ad to earn the coins but it won’t give you any...
Give me my free smula
by giamoneygirl8 on 2020/05/11 17:57
I keep watching videos for free smula and it never gives it to me
You can’t keep the songs you buy.
by ❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔ on 2020/05/11 17:19
I got the game and was pretty impressed with the wide variety of music. I used the coins to buy two songs. But even though I payed for them, I only get to keep them for a day? What kind of bs? Why can’t I just keep the song I bought?! Not to mention it’s so hard to get coins.
Not working
by upsetguys on 2020/05/11 00:47
The games fun but I can’t buy any new songs because I watch the adds but don’t get coins in return ?
It never gives you any coins!!!
by Lillian Moonlight 123 on 2020/05/10 19:40
I like this game but when I watch an add to get five coins it does not give me any coins!!! Also when you level up you only get ONE coin!!! Other wise this game is GREAT except the songs don’t always sound the same as in the real video and it never says the words to the song well anyways this game is Great maybe you should get it for your self it’s FREE!!!
I can’t play COOL SONGS?!
by Great,but I like 4 of them on 2020/05/10 00:00

Wouldn’t recommend
by just_me and my cats on 2020/05/09 21:03
My fingers get sore from this app, not the main issue though. After a while it deleted my progress and I had to get everything back, also it is very hard to get new songs. Maybe this would be okay for some people but I have deleted it.
Good
by princessmerida12 on 2020/05/09 20:30
I love this game! This has great songs. My only issue is that when I watch the videos it doesn’t give me smoola no matter how many I watch. It’s sad because I want to get new songs but I can’t cause the levels take forever then you only get one smoola when you do level up. I just wish the videos worked. Besides that, this game is great and I would highly recommend it for music lovers!
The ads are actually disgusting
by m3galuCArio67 on 2020/05/09 12:55
Can you take the ad for super salon off, it’s gross
Disappointed
by Give me Once Upon a Time on 2020/05/09 03:51
I played this app years ago and loved it. There were always songs to play and you could earn free points to get songs that weren’t free. However, now you get stuck after a week of playing. Even near perfect scores barely make your level increase and when you do reach the next level your reward is like one song and 2, maybe 5, points it takes FOREVER to reach enough points to buy a new song and then you have to start all over. I’ve gotten more songs by being in the top 500 on the daily challenge than I have by redeeming points. AND worst of all they offer ads to watch for x amt of points in return, but since I downloaded the app I have NOT ONCE gotten my payment for watching the ad. It’s ridiculous.

by BinxyBongo on 2020/05/07 20:35

Never got my free Smoola
by Hamiltonlover1324 on 2020/05/07 18:43
I watched 4 videos but never got my free smoola that was promised. If the team could fix this it would be amazing!!! Otherwise this is a great game and it’s very fun to play.
The advertisements oof
by GoddessOfNightNyx on 2020/05/06 12:48
Yeah it’s a great game cause we can compose our own songs and other people can play them as well but the ads!!! When I try to get smoola from ads it always fails!! And then with the other methods such as quizzes, i have to get 100% on quizzes, even though it doesn’t tell me that I have to?!

I like this app, but the only problem is that I don’t get 5 smoola when I watch ads on the free smoola option. It would be great if this was fixed.
Really good app but one problem :/

Went downhill
by bamitsbritt123 on 2020/05/04 15:04
I’ve had this app for years and recently downloaded it again, only to be filled with disappointment. There are ads galore... before playing songs, after playing songs, and even in between ads in order to get more smoola. That’s another thing, the app is almost forcing you to pay to have more songs because you can’t even do actions to get more smoola to buy more songs. I’ve tried multiple surveys, inviting friends, watching an unhealthy amount of ad videos, you name it. I should be filthy stinking rich, but there is no reward for doing any of the actions that the app promises will be rewarded with smoola. The only way to get money to purchase more songs is by 1) paying for VIP which I, a broke college student, will not bring myself to do 2) getting 1 whopping smoola after leveling up.. that’s a lot of daily challenges and repetition of the few songs I already own. Overall, I am very unhappy with the changes this app has made and it brings me more pain than joy to game during my quarantine
Good game but one problem
by Santos zombie elf on 2020/05/03 20:55
I love this game but I can’t earn Smoola by watching ads anymore, I can’t get more songs unless I level up.
Love this game but I can’t get smoola
by MarieWT on 2020/05/03 17:47
I love this game it’s so much fun! I’ve played this game for years and it’s been great. I love the daily challenges and the songs. There’s just one thing that can get annoying there’s so many songs I want to play, but can’t because I don’t have enough smoola. I tried watching the free ads to get five smoola but it won’t give me any so if you could fix that problem that would make me very happy. If you could also add more achievements to the game that be nice as well. 🙂
To many micro transactions
by xxArcaDeer305xx on 2020/05/03 12:50
The free options to get smoola do not work, you’ll watch an ad to get free smoola but once it’s over...nothing happens you don’t get any smoola.And since 90% of the songs cost smoola, you have to buy smoola with real money
TOO MANY ADS
by Chained2darren on 2020/05/03 05:28
An ad before AND after every song? You spend more time watching ads than actually playing. Ridiculous.
So much better!!!
by graygrayblue on 2020/05/02 05:14
Thank you sooooooooo much for dropping the price back to what it was!! Bought the year pass because I love this game (honestly I was boycotting the big price and got way too excited when I saw it dropped lol) Ahhh can’t wait to start playing again!! 😍😍😍
Too many ADS
by Coffee❤️❤️❤️ on 2020/05/02 03:31
There is an ad after EVERY SINGLE SONG and I don’t mean a pop up, I mean a full 15-30 second ad that you can’t get rid of! On top of that, when you choose to watch ads to get the in game currency, guess what? You only get the ad. No reward. The game itself is amazingly fun and I love finding my favorite songs to play. But I’m starting to feel like it’s not worth it!
Used to be great
by Mitsy Puffin on 2020/05/01 01:24
This used to be a wonderful app. But now it simply has too many ads to be even remotely enjoyable (literally one before AND after each song), it’s more frustrating than anything. Additionally, you progress much more slowly than used to be the case, so you are encouraged to spend money in order to get anywhere. I can’t love it anymore, I can’t even like it, so I deleted it.

Fewer Ads
by ronniemj on 2020/04/30 01:40
I previously wrote a negative review, which criticized the number ads, as did many other reviewers. Thankfully, Smule has scaled back the number of ads, and the game is playable again, so I am changing my review.
fun but dumb
by Mikeypmcg on 2020/04/30 01:03
there’s literally no way to get smoolas without spending money. every time i watch an ad to get some it never gives me any and every time you level up you get ONE. what the point in playing when you can only replay the five songs over and over again..
Ads
by pon pon ninja on 2020/04/29 21:16
The ads let you get simolas but is does give you any
Too hard to progress
by MILES🌈 on 2020/04/29 20:33
It’s a fun game, it’s just that to buy a song you wanna play is SO expensive! 25 smula. When you level up you get one. When you complete an achievement you get 1 or 2. I am aware that you can do stuff like watch adds for more, but I never get my award after. Please fix this is make changes. This used to be such a great app
It’s fun but...
by thefunnycat on 2020/04/29 17:14
Well I had an acc and I did delete the app got it agin and it did not remember me?! I am upset I mean it’s a good app and another thing is the coins i watch ads o get free coins but I don’t I did redownloas it now thank you
Disappointing
by missveehorse on 2020/04/29 02:25
I used to play this game and recently re downloaded it. There are SO MANY ads! You can't play a single song without being bombarded with ads. On top of that, the game won't give me my smule rewards so I can't even earn new songs. This app has gone way downhill.
Very bad method of earning smoola
by waloook on 2020/04/28 16:06
I loved this game until I knew that I can’t get smoola even after watching these stupid videos !!! Even tho it says that I’ll get smoola if I watched the videos!!!

Composer Tool Suggestions
by annajc0922 on 2020/04/26 20:27
Other than the constant ads like you’ve probably seen complaints about in every other review, I think this app is really enjoyable, as a composer. I’ve had a lot of fun with making piano arrangements of my favorite songs that are not yet in the game’s song library. However, I think there are a few tools that would be really helpful if they were added to the game. One of them is the ability to make tempo changes within the song. Right now you can only set a tempo for the entire song, which makes it hard to arrange songs that may start slow but speed up further into the song. Secondly, I think it would also be great if there was an option to have multiple meter changes within the song. Thirdly, something I thought would be good for stylistic purposes is being able to make a glissando be one motion or something like that instead of having to put every individual note of the glissando, which can get a bit difficult and tiring for the player to play at the right speed to make it sound right in the context of the song. Additionally, it’d be nice if I could work on more than one song at a time. Also, I like that there’s a button to jump down to the beginning of the song, but I also think there should be one to jump up to the end of what you’ve worked on so far. There have been so many times when I play through my song, then accidentally hit the “jump to beginning” button and have had to scroll all the way back up. Finally, there have been multiple instances where I wished there were one or two more lower octaves below what there is now. Anyway, I don’t know if this will get read by the developers or not, but it’s worth a shot. Overall I still really enjoy the game. 4/5 stars!
No more Smola after watching ads.
by Ends of the Wayward Storm on 2020/04/26 01:20
I used to be able to watch ads and then get five Smola, but that doesn't work anymore. Please fix this. This is such a fun app!
what king of game says “play faster” when you start playing the song?
by fry chickennugget on 2020/04/25 22:19
This is so stupid when started playing it says “pLaY sLoWeR” then I played slower but it said “pLaY fAsTeR” bruh I JUST STARTED PLAYIng the sONg!!
Not Counting Smoola
by Cootgirl on 2020/04/25 16:44
The app is pretty good except it’s not counting my Smoola whenever I watch an ad to get 5 Smoola. Please fix.
>:(
by micraftisdabest:) on 2020/04/25 15:13
Alright, so I remembered this app from when I was about 3 years old. My brother had it on his tablet, so I would always ask to play it. Hey, at least back then it was good! But now it’s gone REALLY down hill. There’s an ad every time I finish a song. Then when I go to play a different song, there’s another ad! It’s super annoying when I go to play songs! Also, there is a glitch. When I go to get free Smoola by watching an ad, it doesn’t make the count go up! If there’s a demo after the ad it doesn’t go up, but if there is no demo it will go up. So I basically waste 5 minutes trying to get some more Smoola by watching ads. So maybe try to get the ads WITHOUT demos. Because every single ad I get, there’s always a demo. That’s fine after playing a song, but not when I get free Smoola. It’s really annoying wasting my time which I could spend on better things watching ads. So try to fix this glitch please! Other than that, it’s still kinda good. You can still get songs, and I love composing my own songs, so it’s kinda good. Thank you for reading.
Free Smoola? Free NOTHING.
by R@Nd0M N@m3 :3 on 2020/04/25 14:02
Ok, this app is very good. (for the free songs you have to watch ads to get, and every time you want to play it, you have to watch an AD.) However, when I go to the free Smoola section of the app, I watch an ad, I earn absolutely nothing. I watched 25 freaking advertisements to get absolutely nothing in return. I really do hope you guys fix the advertisement issues, and PLEASE, fix the Smoola. (It’s literally the only way I earn it.) Meanwhile, the song that you get when you actually have Smoola, and are able to spend it on the things you want, the songs that are by Smule are very accurate. (most by other composers will too, but some just don’t put the work into it.) The piano sounds are accurate, and overall, the only problem is advertisements! (and Smoola) With hope that you fix this mess, Kawaiikekki09
MAJOR BUG, but otherwise fantastic game
by MRW_Stacking on 2020/04/25 04:56
This game is fantastic, but there’s a major bug with getting Smoola. That is if you watch a video, you don’t get your 5 Smoola.
Too many ads!
by AmpKarim on 2020/04/25 02:09
The app is great and all but it just wants to force you to get its premium version. I mean even free songs have an add playing before and after each trach EVERY SINGLE TIME!
Not fair
by ishqkgsiwzgiwgxiwnxi on 2020/04/24 15:53
I really love the game but when I got my new iPhone 6 I went to easy mode on all my songs I get to play and I always get 2 finger and 1 finger but when you have a samsung you only get 1 finger why is it that iPhones get 2 fingers it’s not fair
Smoola glitch
by 935370383626926472938373 on 2020/04/23 21:15
So I find this game fun but most songs cost 25-75 smoola so I go to the store to buy smoola so I watch a video for 5 smoola but yet when the video is over it doesn’t give me anything. Please fix this. On the side note maybe you add more ways to get smoola or something such as getting smoola daily
Fun.. but many problems
by Nikki Shook on 2020/04/23 19:42
Magic Piano is so much fun and I play it DAILY! Thank you so much Smule for making this game. Although there are some problems with the game. I used to buy so many songs with my Smoola because I would watch ads for 5 free Smoola, but now, I basically watch ads for no reason! It won’t give me the Smoola anymore. Please fix this. Another issue. When I’m playing a song a lot of times it tells me to play slower. So I do. But then it tells me to play faster. No matter what I do in less than 15 seconds it tells me to fix how I’m playing. Here’s another one. It’s not an issue it’s just a complaint..not to be rude. I’ve been trying so hard to get on the top 50 list of the daily songs for a couple of months now, but it’s super hard! Could you please make it easier to get on the top list? If you need my username it’s NicoleTwinkle12.
Either intentional or a bug it’s annoying.
by Warrior cats pickle on 2020/04/23 18:13
I don’t know if other users have had this occurrence, but when I play a song and it has a note of four coming up, I hit it, and it pauses the song, that feature is super annoying and if it’s a bug please fix it. I despise having to click that “resume” button a good 30 times to even finish one song.

Smoola and ad problems
by gamerwskills on 2019/08/11 19:28
I’ve had this app for at least 6 years and I loved playing it when I first downloaded it. I don’t really mind all the changes that made the app look different, but I’m having problems that I never had in the past. When I played this app on my iPad, I watched videos to get at least 75 smoola and it worked. Then recently when I started to do it again, it worked but then I would get ads that didn’t get me any smoola. When I first started having this problem, I thought that there might be a glitch in the app. So I tried to buy a song from the Songbook because I thought I would get the song I wanted even though I didn’t have the right amount of smoola. But when I tapped on the song to buy it, it said that I didn’t have the right amount even though I watched videos to earn smoola. Sometimes I would wait to get more smoola and then when I press the button to earn 5 smoola, it would say there I should come back later to watch more videos. Then I go to use another app to occupy myself. Then when I go back to the app, I would press the same button again, but then I would get an ad that doesn’t get me any smoola. I also wish that I wouldn’t have to watch videos after playing songs and I wouldn’t have to watch videos to play free songs even though I already played the song I want to play again.
I used to love it...
by @miggysbiggestfan on 2017/12/01 21:09
So I've had this app probably since I was 15 when I first got my iPhone 6, and it was addicting up until now. Okay so last night every single song I have showed 3 stars next to each level of difficulty that I have played at, and just a few minutes ago when I went to open the app, ALL of my songs showed no stars highlighted, no scores, no nothing. Like I just bought them or composed them and haven't even started playing them yet. I am really angry. 😡😡 Also there are just too many ads. 👎🏻 Every ten seconds after I finish a song, a stupid ad pops up about some coloring book or food game and it's really annoying. 😤 Also I really hate how the majority of everyone's favorite songs nowadays can't be played unless you have a VIP membership accessibility. It's ridiculous. I feel that VIP membership to play a song on Magic Piano should be banned, because you know, there are not very many VIP members in the world. I'm seriously thinking about deleting this app from my phone for permanent. I've not only had to deal with the troubles I stated above, but I've also had to deal with the app freezing up, songs I compose that won't let me publish no matter what I do, and Daily Challenge songs taking decades to load and then refreshing the app only for it to crash every time I reopen it. It's getting really frustrating and I can't take it any longer. 🚫
Not like I remember
by PennePastaCat on 2019/07/28 18:58
I had this app a couple years ago and absolutely loved it. It was challenging to play, since I only had a tiny device to play it on, but it was great. I actually felt like I was making progress with each song and difficulty I completed. I fell out of touch with the app in college and recently decided to redownload it because of how fun I remembered it being. I am disappointed with what Ive found. It feels like the only way to actually progress and earn coins for new songs is to spend money. It’s either that, or play the same few songs over and over again, making little progress each time. I could play a song on the hardest level without missing a single note, and still barely progress to higher levels. Not to mention the plethora of ads. I fully understand that when you play a game for free to expect a few ads here and there, but no other free app I’ve ever used has shoved so many ads in my face. I was able to tolerate it for a while, because the game itself is loads of fun, but my patience has worn out and I’ve deleted the app from my devices. It’s a shame because I absolutely adore the gameplay and ability to compose my own songs. I got this app to help relax when I have an idle moment between school and work, but it’s proven to be more stressful dealing with the above issues than it’s worth. It’s absolute waste of time, money, and effort.
Fun to play, but not my style
by FoxeGamer01 on 2019/02/28 05:04
I’ve downloaded this app on and off lately, for separate reasons. First of all, I hate all of these ads! I mean, sometimes every time you enter a different song, the same ad pops up. So on top of having to watch these stupid ads for different games, it’s the same one over and over and over. It’s so annoying that I’ve purposely turned off my Wi-Fi just to get rid of ads. It’s ridiculous! Second of all, I hate that the achievements give you only one or two coins! I mean, about eighty percent of the songs cost twenty five coins! And you work so hard on a single achievement to only get one coin? It’s stupid! Last but not least, there’s the case of this VIP stuff! I mean, half the songs in the entire app is in the VIP section! And almost all of my favorite songs are in the VIP section! It’s just not fair. Why should we spend our money on some stupid things like VIP memberships when eventually we’re gonna delete the game for all these reasons! Basically what this game- and all games in fact- is saying is that instead of using money to buy exciting things, we’re using it for an online item that isn’t real. It’s ridiculous, it’s stupid, and it’s a waste of money. Even though I somewhat enjoyed the game, all of these things are making my interests go down! Fix these things!
Went downhill
by lencofam on 2017/12/11 05:07
I used to have this app as a very young child, and the only reason why I deleted it was because I got frustrated at its difficulty. Just recently, the game crossed my mind and I decided to re-download it and give it another go. Because I’ve gotten a lot better at video games over the years, the difficulty of the game was no longer a problem. There, were, however, new problems with the game that I didn’t expect to encounter. For starters, the game has WAY to many ads. I can’t play a single song, not even a short one like Happy Birthday, without being forced to watch a stupid, boring video that I don’t care about. I got this game because I remembered how fun it was, but it’s kind of hard to have fun when 90% of the game is just you watching ads for other games. Second of all, this game is basically begging you for money at this point. The fact that some of the songs are only available to VIP users is just stupid. Do they really expect us to spend actual money on a stupid piano game that we have on our phones? Besides from that, every achievement you can accomplish in the game (leveling up, getting new songs, etc.) can be bought with just a few bucks. The fact that literally everything in this game has been put up for sale is terrible. Well, that’s my review
$mule.. it’s all about the $$$
by Samiam1023 on 2018/04/13 00:43
I loved this game for a long time but over the last year or more the ads are ridiculous and every time before you start a song .. there’s an ad.. finish a song... another ad... select another song.. an ad.. and on and on. I paid for a one week trial and didn’t realize it continued charging me. I originally signed up for 7.99 a month only to find out a couple months later they were billing me 2.99 a week! Being able to compose songs was a cool idea until I finished a level and earned 200 coins... purchased a newer song for 75 coins that was nothing more than a few taps and that was it. I didn’t get the song I paid for and that’s happened many of times. When someone submits a composure I think someone at the company should review it first before putting it out there for people to waste their money. Lastly... I have maxed out on levels so all the songs I rack points up on are of no use since the app is now not even giving me credit so unless I want to pay for VIP I have no way to earn what little reward you get for completing a level. What started out as my absolute favorite game is now nothing more than a money sucker and it doesn’t appear that it’ll improve. Great game gone to the deleted aps of my account! They aren’t getting anymore of my money!
Horrible ads!
by Mefens on 2017/12/06 13:51
I’ve always enjoyed playing magic piano. Over the years, I’ve had a membership and at other times did not. Currently, I don’t feel I play it enough to justify paying. With that being said, I have noticed some things that make this app not very enjoyable. 1. It takes FOREVER to earn smule coins. Which makes the app not much fun because I feel like I get to play the same songs over and over again. Not cool and not challenging. 2. Under “my songs” I have a bunch of songs which I have either bought or had while having a membership. At this point without clicking on each one there is no way to tell if I’m able to play it or if I need more smule. Confusing. 3. This is the most annoying of all. The ads that I see (which I do feel there are too many of) are not ones that I wish for my kids to see. There are ones that show a doll that is getting beat up and bloodied and tells you you “kick it’s a**” and that this will “relieve your stress”, really?! Not the message I want to send. There are others I have seen that are similar, zombies I believe, and there is a lot of blood. I don’t expect or desire to see these ads, ever, yet alone, over and over again. That needs to be changed or I will have to delete this once great app.
Very good, but some flaws.
by Trtplayer on 2019/02/24 17:46
Your game is very good and I honestly think it could be quite more famous. But there are some flaws... take the amount of ads for example... every time you finish a song, ad. Whenever you want to play a song in the free song list, and I quote,”your free content will be available after this message!” And then an ad. I feel like you just went a little overboard with the ads. And second of all MEMBERSHIPS. People already know that memberships are becoming a problem. They attract you into buying them, they give you a free trial, and they make it so almost everything is membership only. I counted that vip only song list in the menu. Over (drumroll please) 700 SONGS. You might wanna check how much you do to non-members. Finally, this isn’t too much of a complaint but just a thing to tell you. You’re age rating is 4+ right? Well.... Whenever I have to rack up smoola I watch ads and one of them has been catching my eye. You might wanna check your advertising because one of the ads legit has 18+ in the corner and the end of the ad even says,” adult game for adult emotions.” But so yeah just check your ads every so often and I feel like that this game could be much better
Fingers too big?
by Jen Reeves on 2017/09/25 23:10
So I've only had the app for a couple of hours and I signed up for the free seven day trial. I love the selection of songs, and I played a couple on easy mode and thought they were quite fun. But if I change the difficulty above easy, there are times when I'm asked to hit three notes at once. The two dots off to the right are so close together I can't hit them both at the same time. I put my two fingers together as tightly as possible and tap the screen and it's only registering that I'm hitting one of the dots. I don't have big hands, I'm a woman of average height and average weight so my fingers are not chubby or unusual in any way. I feel like I am missing something. Like there Nice to be an obvious solution then I'm just not noticing. Especially because I don't see anyone else complaining about this problem. Maybe there should be settings I can change to make the dots a little bit further apart so that my fingers can hit them, but I don't see anything like that anywhere. So I really like the song selection and I like the concept of the game and the sound is very nice, so I would give it a higher rating if I could actually Play it above easy. Until I figure out what's wrong and how to fix it this app is useless to me.
Love game but....
by Unicorn Magic 432 on 2019/06/27 03:43
This game is a perfect game for when you are bored or stressed and you just want to play the piano. I also love how you are able to make your own music on the app. There are a couple of problems in the problems in the game. The first issue is that the game glitches a lot sometimes and I have to shut my phone off a couple of times and that gets annoying. A second issue is that the game takes a while to load once you open it (the longest I ever waited was about 5-8 minutes). A third issue is that if you want to play a song you have to pay for it or use coins which you have to pay for or earn by watching ads (sometimes the ads don’t even load correctly so you can’t watch the video for coins).The songs are also expensive so it’s hard to get songs. A fourth reason is that when ever I click on something I the app there is add. Adds always pop up and one time one was inappropriate(a choices add that had sexual content).Also if you create a song you don’t get to be able to own it you have to pay for it!!! I understand you guys need to make money somehow but still!!!! I like the game but it needs some tweaks for the perfect fun experience.
WHAT THE HECK SMULE
by I'm a Artist on 2018/04/19 02:09
So I get you guys are a big app now, and I have had Magic Piano since it first came out, years ago. I used it when there was only basic songs like Twinkle Twinkle little Star. I’ve kept it all these years, and never have I gotten so many ads. I have over 150 songs, do you know how many Ads I had to watch? Plus free songs. I also did TapJoy stuff, and never once got my Smula (should be almost 6800 since I did ones you actually had to pay for also) I’ve reported it and then was told it was “Lost” but it said I had done it. Of course I got a little mad. Yet, I still have the app. How am I re-payed? ADS AFTER EVERY SONG! I like to play the songs but it’s annoying when a ad comes in every two seconds. As before I can play to ad after I play then repeat. It’s used to be reasonable, 1 ad after every 3-4 songs. Sometimes 5 if you watched a Smula ad. Don’t you guys already have Millions just from all of your apps combined? You guys are getting greedy. Also the VIP thing. Why are all the good songs VIP? The daily challenges used to be VIP songs, which was cool. But now it’s songs you can go and buy. Tired of it smule. I’ll keep the game and I wish to have my 6800 Smula, but I’m not going to force it. And PLEASE KEEP THE ADS ON A DOWN LOW!
Terrible
by tifpow on 2018/03/21 05:36
This app has gotten worse and worse. There is very rarely any free content created. I have a large library of songs that I accumulated when the app had a bigger variety of free songs, but even I get bored of playing those. So, does that mean I buy a VIP membership? Of course not! It’s super overpriced! To put it into perspective, a year of VIP is $40 which is about as much as a good quality Nintendo DS game. Not only does the Nintendo DS game have more to offer (offense intended) you also get to play it forever. It’s one payment of $40, not $40 a year like Magic Piano. Who in their right mind would buy a VIP subscription to Magic Piano? So, that’s off the table. I should just play the songs I have and get over it right? Or maybe save up smoola to get more. First of all, smoola takes forever to earn. I’ve been playing this game on and off for years and I got enough smoola to buy one song ONCE. Not to mention I had accumulated a lot of smoola at a point (probably over 100) and I opened the app one day and it was gone! The only reason I gave this app any stars at all is because if you’re playing one of the few decent songs you can, it’s really really fun. But it’s a terrible app that begs for money from us and lost what made it so great.
Loving it, just one problem...
by iiStar_Strxckxx on 2019/07/05 17:00
Ok so I’m really loving this game, but there is just one problem that is just so annyoying. So I was just finishing up medium level on Colors by Halsey, and then I decided to try hard, so all was well the first few seconds, UNTIL... this popped up, “Why is magic piano paused?? Go to settings and turn off multitasking so your screen doesn’t slide off to another app! “ And so I went to setting and went to general, Like is showed in the picture, and I couldn’t find it! It wasn’t there! So I went back to magic piano to see the picture, and it was the exact thing I did! I couldn’t find “ MULTITASKING” So I just went back to the song, thinking it was just a one - time thing, and the NEXT TIME I press 4 finger it pops up again! It was so annoying! So I ignored it. And then a few peachy notes later it pops up again! Ughh it was so annoying! And so I finishing the song, and because of the pop up thing, I only got 2 stars!! But other than that, this game is awesome! Now I know that this review is just going to be one of the other reviews, lost in the ocean of reviews, but PLEEEEAAASE! Try to fix this.
Timing....too slow...???!
by lilpkrmnstr on 2018/04/30 04:47
I love this app, but the one thing I can't stand is when it tells me I'm being too slow.. but I'm trying to play the song the way it sounds.. And it always seems to want to rush me. I'd rather be able to play the song the way it feels in the way it sounds rather than having the app tell me I'm playing too slow. Messing up is one thing, but having a longer pause at the end of that set because you're playing it with feeling is another. I think that should be fixed. Make room for a real or with feeling pause. Also.. I LOVE the community section. However, I think people just messing around makes it hard to find the people who have actually created an amazing piece. That's frustrating. If you want the quality of the app, you pay for it. Have a passion for piano music, you pay for it. People who love it will pay for it. I would love to get rid of the “junk” on it... the songs people create that make no sense. They should have to be approved or something. Keep the crap out.
UUGGHH SO ANNOYING!! ADS?!?
by Pookeylookey on 2018/10/31 12:14
So many ads!! I know it helps the company, but there’s so much to were I get out of the game because of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game (kinda addicted) but I redownloaded the game the other day, and I don’t remember the game having so much ads. I mean cmon. I get on the app, ad, when I pick a song that I’ve already watched 40 million ads for, ANOTHER AD, and even when I get done playing a song..guess what, ANOTHER AD!!! cmon smule, where’s the game that I enjoyed without getting all these stupid ads. Plus, it’s like the same ads everyday. I’m okay with ads (because every game has them). Buttttt when they interrupt EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY, then I’m either gonna delete the game I love, or give y’all a review and hope y’all address and fix the problem. :) Yes, I understand y’all benefit from ads, but surely for how many people play yalls apps, and how many ads y’all have on a game in general, I think y’all are good on money. Please Please PlEaSe fix the PrObLeM!!!!! LOVE AND KIND, LAYTHEN!!! :) P.s- I love the game, and the games y’all produce. But, it’s basically all the stikin ads that I have to deal with just on this game. I hope y’all can fix this. Have a great day! :)
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
In Game Currency
by bubblez110123 on 2019/09/13 01:01
Ive had this game for about 5 years. I have had 3 accounts and all has been good. Though, i wouldn’t recommend you download this app. Here are a few reasons why. 1)you cant watch adds to get in game currency to buy new songs, but the past 2 years if you get an add that has a demo at the end ( and if the x isnt tinted grey ) you wont get your currency. I kid you not i watched 20 mins of adds and got 5 (= 1 add) its bs. 2) the game feels rather single player even though its an online game. While yes you can play other peoples songs ( and their copies) you cant do anything else. It would be nice to at least have a comments section. 3) copies are on about every song. And they do absolutely nothing about it. Now the copies of their 75 smoola ( igc ) songs are completely fine by me! But the countless copies of one persons hard work is ridiculous. The one person who tapped their screen for hours get no credit because there isn't even a way to find the original creator. Overall this game is a money scheme. They want your money so you can progress and you unlock new songs to progress. But at least its a reasonably fun money scheme!
AD AND BUG/GLITCH INFESTED APP!!
by Alcrex0260 on 2017/11/15 03:31
Used to like the game but maybe if they added an instant replay feature pianist can see where they might have messed up, and also there’s a bug or glitch that makes the songs I purchased with smolda coins via search, the only songs that show up in the “my songs” section is the songs that the app created. It’s really annoying when I can’t play the songs I spent a long time watching ads to get. And also sometimes I sit through a 30-50 second ad and I don’t even get the coins for it, um..... WHATTTTT?!?!?!? I used to really like this game. I played it for hours without any ads and it was fun and enjoyable and all bugs were squashed, but now we have ads around every corner, bug nests everywhere and ads with sexual content, um excuse me but (no offense intended to Smule) who do you think you are?! It’s an app rated 4+ so there should be content that’s appropriate for 4+ aged people. UNACCEPTABLE!! How would you feel, developers of Smule, if your child was playing an app and encounters an ad containing sexual content? I would feel like a bad parent! And if more and more people feel the app makes them feel like bad parents, they’ll delete the app and you’ll loose money! Then what will you do? Just think about that.
Good but some problems
by doglover828 on 2020/01/11 01:12
I love this game! I think it’s very creative the way they made you play the piano. I have never seen a game like this before it’s so unique! But there is always a but sooooo story time! So I was trying to get some more money ( I forgot the name of the money in the game) so I watched an add to get some money and I looked at where my money was and it stayed the same! But I thought it was a little glitch so I tried again and the same thing happened! I rebooted my iPad several times but it still never gave me more money. I got very frustrated with this problem. Please work on it. (or is it my iPad...) ok next problem ( I know too many problems and and it’s getting annoying but just stay with me PLEASE!) ok so the next thing that happened was I finally got enough money to get a new song. And I picked the song I wanted but then when I looked back at my songs it wasn’t there! Please work on that problem (or is it just my iPad again?!) ok so the point is GET THIS GAME I know I complained a lot but I would still get this game if I were you so yeah. PEACE OUT
Major Problem (developers please fix)
by pink whale dolphin on 2019/06/12 14:07
At first I really loved this game but lately I have been having a huge problem with it. If you own this game and only have a few songs you won’t see this problem as much but I own around 20 songs. Not all of the songs I have bought, won, or chosen from “free songs” show up in “my songs” many of them are still in free songs and some of them don’t show up anywhere. Now that is a problem but wait there is an even bigger one. Some times a song that I own doesn’t show up in “my songs” or in “free songs” it shows up in “suggested songs” or in “editor’s choice” (even when I search my songs this happens) it says I own it and the stars are even fulled in. Well I go to click on it because obviously I have payed for that song and I want to play it but it says that I am blank many smoolas short like I have to buy it again. WHAT? I ALREADY PAYED FOR IT ONCE I HAVE TO PAY FOR IT AGAIN? This is really frustrating. If it wasn’t for this major problem I would give this app five or four stars if it didn’t have this problem, it is really fun and I love playing the songs. But please fix this major problem I want my songs back.
Disappointing
by uwu 4 u on 2019/01/13 04:55
Ideally this would be a great app. It was fun for a bit but there is really not that much you can do without spending money. Smoola, their currency, is soooo hard to obtain. There are these achievements you can get but after the first few easy ones you realize that the rest are impossible to get. You have to play more songs to get the achievements that get you smoola, but to be able to play those songs you have to buy them with smoola. Either way you need smoola and the only way to get it is to buy it with real money. There are tons of ads just to play song that last only one or two minutes. Whenever I saved up enough smoola ( a rare occurrence) I was so happy because that means I could get a song. So over the course of the few years that I have had this app, I have been able to buy ONLY FOUR SONGS! (I don't use this app that often, maybe once a week or a bit more). I also wish there was a way to preview the songs before you buy them. For two out of my four purchased songs, I have been disappointed with the way they sound. This app would be so much better if you didn't have to spend so much money to enjoy it.
Great Game... but also some honesty
by lSIRsmokeALOTl on 2018/03/02 20:42
Alright, so I would like to start by stating that I absolutely love this game as a game, but I've come across some shady business practices from Smule considering their billing agreement. I did the one week trial, loved it and then paid for another. I decided I needed to not pay for the subscription for personal finance reasons, so I canceled my VIP membership. Low and behold they charged me for VIP the next week, so I removed PayPal from my payment methods on iTunes. Funny thing is, even after cancelling the subscription and removing PayPal as a payment method they continued to charge me for four more consecutive weeks. I had to claim fraudulent charges through my bank to get the payments to stop. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or shady business practices, but make sure you manually stop the recurring charges through your bank if you want to stop the VIP membership. That is honestly the only reason I gave this game three stars. If not for that singular incident I would definitely have rated it 5 stars. Great game! Love it! But I'm going to be uninstalling it after my experience.
Scam
by Cchhoollee on 2018/07/19 03:07
I used to love this app, but now it’s just disappointing. I opened the app for the first time in about a year yesterday, and all of the thirty something songs I had ever purchased and played were gone. Even a song that I bought last night was gone by this morning. It’s pretty much impossible to get coins without purchasing them with real money, and I wasn’t going to spend that much time watching ads. Another horrible change that I’ve noticed is the increase in ads. A year ago, all of the songs in the free section used to actually be free. But now, you have to watch an ad before playing one. Even if you want to change the difficulty, you have to watch an ad. Ads never used to be apparent in the app unless you watched them for coins, but now they pop up after you play almost any song, even if you have actually purchased it. After reading a lot of reviews, I am positive that everything that is happening to me is not a unique glitch, and is probably a scam put into place by Smule so they can earn more money. Don’t waste your time trying to make good use of this app. It’s not worth it. There are plenty of other much better versions out there.
So. Many. Freaking. Ads.
by LittleNerdyElephant on 2018/01/11 01:03
Ugh, BEFORE and AFTER I play a song, I have to watch an ad. I can’t X out of it, because then I just close out of the app and lose my progress, and end up repeating what I tried and failed to do before. I give it three stars, mainly because it is a great app overall, with fun songs and options, xp points after every song you play that you save to level up, rewards, etc. I think it would be such a better game if there weren’t as many advertisements! Also, almost everything is too pricey. It is hard to get through the game without purchasing something. There are only eight free songs I know of, without being a VIP, and once you complete those, you kinda have to just replay them until you level up and get more smoola to buy a song. I think this game has potential, but please add in more free songs and lower the amount of ads I see, because honestly it is super annoying, and I want to delete it but I would lose all my progress. If you make these simple changes, my star rating will go up, and I guarantee others will too.
Time for a change!
by On the second day on 2017/08/10 18:03
I've had Smule for about three years now and have noticed major changes in the downward direction, sometimes I ask myself why do I still play....why because it is fun after you get through the extremely loud commercials. Some commercials can last as long as 30 seconds and they are now using commercials with sexual orientation and I heard the F word this week on a new commercial. I hope Smule doesn't think only adults use this app because I know several minors that use this. Usually you have to listen to two commercials before playing a song which is tiresome. As for the new composers feature I personally do not care for it because all it does is make about 20 songs of the same song and when you finally get a free song it'll give you a duplicated song that you already have, just made by someone else. it takes a long time sometimes to get a free song even when it asks you would you like a free song today?... and then they don't give you one! I will not pay an annual membership to play this game. Smule needs to get it together and make this app fun for everyone.
The glitch😤
by I❤️EDM on 2018/06/23 19:57
Overall I think this app is fun and I like that there’s a ton of songs to choose from. But I’m writing this review because of one problem in particular I’m having. When I play on the hard level, (using up to four fingers) often for some unknown reason it will keep pausing even though I do NOT hit the pause button. This happens a lot now (sometimes ten times a song...no exaggeration!) Also it’s started to glitch out right into other apps when I’m right in the middle of a song. It’s getting very annoying. Please fix this! (A month later) Something just popped up on my screen on how to make it stop pausing right in the middle so many times of every song. I did it and it worked. Thanks! I’ll bump it up to four stars now. I’d have a better chance of giving it five stars if there weren’t soooo many ads (An ad after every song you play and sometimes you’re required to watch an ad before you can even begin playing a song) and if the songs didn’t cost so much.
This is my favorite game in the whole world
by Wifey290 on 2018/01/13 08:16

AWESOMENESS, MOSTLY‼️‼️🎹🎼🎶🎵
by Sookie words and more on 2017/08/18 20:23
Magic Piano is SO fun but also SO too funny‼️‼️I'm reading reviews and SMH!! Many if not most of us are far from Bach or Mozart but Magic Piano gives us an opportunity to at least feel like we can actually play a piano!! Realistically, though, NOT!! Now I hear ya about these darn, often occurring, loud ads, they are quite troublesome but at least you can get smules but 1 is not equal to each ad in my opinion. Now granted I love it when I play a song and people in the same room can recognize and identify the song I'm actually trying to play!! I did learn much from reading the reviews in regards to options within the app. such as you can practice, pause, play songs people like us have composed vs. actual composers and so on so I think I can enjoy the experience even better. It's always a plus and boost to the old ego when you play well enough to to unlock more songs and level up!! Thumbs up for me👍🏼👌🏽😜👏🏼👏🏼🎹🎧🎤
No longer any good
by Lvsdolls on 2019/06/24 01:46
I played this app when it was first available. I loved it! There were a few ads plus you could earn Smula by watching an ad. It was reasonable. Now! You have to watch an ad before and after the few free songs available AND the songs that are mine, that I bought, now have an ad after playing but before u get your points. If you don’t watch the ad you lose your points. Earning Smula is insane! The number of ads involved just to get points towards a level that when complete gives you 1 Smula. Any song to buy is 25 Smula (to put it in perspective). I don’t recommend this game or any games thru this company. They are greedy and underhanded. They used to be one of my favorite and trusted companies. I hope this company realizes that no one is going to pay u for ads if u have no one playing your games. You seriously need to revamp how your doing your games before your greed puts you out of business!!! It’s not like there’s no competition with other similar games!! DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME. Be prepared to spend 90% of your time watching ads if you try out this game. The single star I gave is a tribute for the way this game used to be.
Im so bitter
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2018/08/02 04:03
I’m so incredibly disappointed in this app. I used to have it a long time ago and I loved it SO MUCH. it was so soothing and I would play it every night before I went to sleep. But that was on my old iPad, and now it’s incompatible with the app. I had never played it with my phone cause I thought the screen would be too play to play properly (I was right), so I never got it. Then I saw an ad for it and I thought “that would be fun to try again!” WRONG. I’m so mad. The first thing it’s greets me with is “you wanna but a membership that’s way overpriced?”. Then after that I tried to play a song and was bombarded with SO MANY ADS!! Also, I tried to play a song from the little mermaid that had the voice along with it, and it WAS NOT synced up at all!! I used to play the ones with the voice all the time, so I know how it works. I wasn’t doing it wrong. When did this app become such a sell out?!? Literally like 3/4th of the app is all ads. It’s completely ridiculous. I’m so disappointed and frustrated. I just wanted that soothing experience again. Listen Smule, you don’t need all this crap to sell your app. You’re just making people mad. Please give up back what we want.

Alright, so I remembered this app from when I was about 3 years old. My brother had it on his tablet, so I would always ask to play it. Hey, at least back then it was good! But now it’s gone REALLY down hill. There’s an ad every time I finish a song. Then when I go to play a different song, there’s another ad! It’s super annoying when I go to play songs! Also, there is a glitch. When I go to get free Smoola by watching an ad, it doesn’t make the count go up! If there’s a demo after the ad it doesn’t go up, but if there is no demo it will go up. So I basically waste 5 minutes trying to get some more Smoola by watching ads. So maybe try to get the ads WITHOUT demos. Because every single ad I get, there’s always a demo. That’s fine after playing a song, but not when I get free Smoola. It’s really annoying wasting my time which I could spend on better things watching ads. So try to fix this glitch please! Other than that, it’s still kinda good. You can still get songs, and I love composing my own songs, so it’s kinda good. Thank you for reading.
Helpful ideas!!!!
by JHONOSAURUS REX on 2018/05/16 01:29
I think that this is a very fun and creative app, but only when people stop copying the same song from each other. The sad thing is that they aren’t even the right song. For example, I wanted to play the song “Every time we Touch” by cascada and when I search it up, I see that all of the songs say cascada on them. But when I listen to them, they aren’t even remotely close to the actual song. I would love it if you could add something to prevent that since it is very annoying. Aside from that, I think it would be a good idea for you to add a function that allows you to transpose songs that you have downloaded on iTunes for the piano. So basically, if I have a song on iTunes that isn’t on the app, I could select the function and it would transpose itself to match the app. I think that it would be a good idea, and I think that it will make the app more enjoyable. Overall, it is a very fun app and I would like to see more happen with it. Thank you!
Too many Ads now! Poor song selection
by Ashlish on 2017/10/16 04:12
I'm finally irritated enough to write this review. This use to be my favorite app, hands down. So fun and included challenges and current music. However, now there are so many ad disruptions. Playing a new tune, first an ad....playing a song you have already paid for, first an ad.... playing a free song made by another user, first an ad. It's ridiculous. Now, I barely play it, unless I have time and patience to sit through five ads in less than ten minutes. Total sell out move, btw Smule. I wouldn't mind buying it, but a monthly fee is charged with an auto subscription, or you have to sign up for a slippery trial offer. Not a good deal. Also, there use to be new songs made by Smule that were free. Now, it's the same songs over and over made by different users-Chasing Cars, Gravity Falls Theme, Hokage's Death, Hallelujah, What a Wonderful World.....seriously! It's been those songs for at least a year now. Change it up a bit and I don't mean different Smule user composers. That comes off pretty cheap and makes me wonder what I would get from allowing you to charge my card every month if I signed up.
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
It is okay, BUT could be better!!!
by Twinkies5everrr on 2018/02/16 05:58
I believe that Magic Piano is a good app. It is fun and creative.., and I really like the fact that people have the opportunity to compose songs ^-^... however, there are some huge problems about this app -.-... To begin with, there are SERIOUSLY WAYYYYY too many advertisements. (No exaggeration) There is an ad EVERY single time I finish a song. Also, when I select a free song (Or even one of mY songs!¡!) to play, an ad/video pops up. I think this is very annoying and makes me a lottt less interested to play the game. Another problem is that since a lot of the songs are not free, it is really hard to buy songs when you barely have any smoolas. It is so hard to get smoolas because (i don't know if this is just me) every time i complete those free offers to get smoolas, it NEVER works. Back in the olden days where the compose magic piano update was long gone, the offers would actually work and reward me... Magic Piano was not that bad a while ago, but now, its progress is going downhill :(
Isn’t worth it if you don’t pay VIP
by tessmelane on 2019/11/01 06:24
I’ve used this app since 2012 and it’s definitely changed over the years. Before there were no adds and it was easier to gain Smoola. Now it’s really not worth playing if you aren’t going to pay for it, there is an INSANE amount of adds, and saving up money takes a while so it’s hard to get songs, at least the ones that aren’t VIP only anyways. I pay for the app and honestly it’s not that horrible in price if you’re going to actually spend time with it. There’s no adds and you can basically play whatever you want. I like that you can add whatever songs or search for literally anything from others who have added songs. For some reason or another (probably the lack of the plague of adds) the VIP version runs super smoothly in comparison and I haven’t experienced any glitching, which honestly surprises me. Basically, if you don’t want to pay for it save yourself the frustration. If you do, it’s a great app.
Not Sure What to Think
by BlitzyWolf on 2019/01/21 02:29
I grew up playing this and thought it was amazing. However, after deleting it after a few years and deciding to revisit a childhood memory...it most certainly disappointed me. The constant ads drive me insane whenever I play various songs of a relatively short duration. Not only that, but being able to afford the songs I wish to play is just depressing to look at without the means of spending money. Although I understand there must be ads and a reason to become a VIP to earn money, I don’t see a purpose strong enough to convince me to spend a penny on this app. On a different note, I’ve played this on my iPad and have found it exceedingly frustrating to attempt playing songs on a hard difficulty due to the four finger taps available during them, because it pauses the song and brings up a menu from the bottom about half of the times I try to play the four finger notes. I’m unsure why a pausing mechanic like that was implemented into the game due to inconvenience and how unnecessary it is. So, I highly doubt that I will return to using this app unless some of its serious issues are properly addressed.
Great app, but..
by Gohrikat on 2020/04/14 21:01
This app is truly amazing! So much fun and occupying, very easy and fun, and there are so many different songs to play. However, I sincerely wish that we did not have to watch so many ads. It gets annoying very fast, and it makes me not want to play. Another problem I have with this game is that you have to pay a lot of smoola for just one song. The songs get up to 75 smoola currently, and to get free smoola, you need to do things that some people can’t actually do. For example, you can connect to Facebook, which some people are unable to do because they don’t have Facebook. And there are a lot of children playing this game as well that are not allowed to have certain social media. Another thing is you can watch a 23 second ad for just 5 smoola. Its not very fun when all you can do at one point is watch ads for smoola and play all the free songs. (Which, in my opinion, are ever very fun.) This app would be absolutely amazing if we could do some easier things to get smoola.
Good game...needs improvement
by mashingpotatoV22 on 2019/06/16 16:28
I have been playing smule piano for a long time on and off, and I have realize the pros and cons of the game. Here are the pros... PROS: 1. Good music selection 2. Different piano sounds 3. Daily challenges + rewards For the most part smule has done a good job creating music and allowing others to do so too, but here are the cons..... CONS: 1. When let’s say you have an account and make a song inspired by another person’s song, you should be allowed to play it without having to buy it with smule coins, which brings me to the next con 2. There should be more opportunities to get smule coins then leveling up (which only gives you like 2 coins). When there are songs that cost 25 coins each, you should have more options to get coins than just watching the same video over and over again for 5 coins 3. Sometimes when I get in to the app (on iPhone and iPad) it just stops at the smule logo and I have to tap out and try it again. 4. And finally, when playing on an iPhone, it is sometimes hard to keep up on the singing piano mode because the 4 notes are hard to press. This meet mean I’m not the best digital piano player but I think amateur will understand Overall smule piano is a great game but it needs some improvements. And know that it was hard for me to come up with pros. And one last thing, can smule please change the singing on the ads for smule singing because man, they are so out of tune.😒🙏🏻
Amazing but a few cons
by 🐱Graystripe🐱 on 2019/12/24 16:29
Magic piano is amazing! I love to play it everyday and compose new songs. Considering I play the piano in real life, magic piano Is so much like that. But, there are a few cons for this game that should be fixed. 1) It’s so hard to get smoolas. Every song is at least 25 or 75 smoolas. Every time you level up, you always get one. 2) I love to compose song, but the problem is that once it is composed and published, you can’t play it anymore. You would need to spend 25 smoolas if you would want to. For your OWN SONG. 3) You can always listen to the song before playing it, but the problem is that you can’t listen to the whole song. So thanks to that, I spend 25 smoola on a song that WASN’T EVEN FINISHED! Besides all of this, it is fun 4) As a pianist, I actually enjoy this app, but what I don’t like is that every note is a quarter note. That is why some song don’t sound correct. Most song have half notes, eighth notes, whole notes, dotted half notes, and so on. So can you PLEASE fix that. 5) it’s hard to keep your songs. There was this song that was given to me as a gift when I first joined Magic Piano, and now it wants me to pay for its access. I should have kept it, but nooo, now they took it away from me. There is this other song I was given free, and now they took the access away from it too Please fix these if you can. Also, keep up the good work.
Not worth the time
by Hunter(Soda_Pressed) on 2019/07/14 18:31
It’s pretty fun, and I don’t really mind the excessive amount of ads, I know you need to get money somehow. But my complaints are that first of all, there is very few chances to earn Smoola (or Smula, or however it’s spelled). I don’t feel like signing up for some subscription to pay for an app on my iPod, so if I want to get a new song I have to use the in-game currency. It’s extremely hard to just accumulate the currency over time, so I tried watching the ads to get 5 more Smoola, but nothing happened and I didn’t receive any money. I watched an ad, and the number of Smula I already had showed a loading sign, but then disappeared and I still had the same amount I did before. Usually I wouldn’t really care, after all, it’s just a game and I doesn’t really matter. But I really wanted to play this one song, and besides, I watch so many ads all the time, that if i got 5 Smula every time I watched one, I’d be rolling in cash. Another issue is how half the songs are only for VIPs. Again, I’m not going to pay real money just to play a song I already know how to play on a real piano. But of course, you don’t really read the reviews at all, do you? Dozens of people like me have the same complaints, and you haven’t changed a single thing. I’m wasting my time. Sorry for it being so long. Those are my thoughts. I say don’t get this app if you’re going to take it seriously. If you just want some relaxation, this is fine. Hunter
Sort of amazing.!
by iab524 on 2019/12/26 16:45
So this game is so FUN! It’s so addicting. But I have to list a few problems. 1. When I compose a song, (I made jingle bells) I have to pay smoola for my own song? I wanted to play it, for free. It’s confusing. Would the smoola go to me? Or will it go to a random player? Or will it go to you? My brain is confused. Also, I payed for the jingle bells once, and I have to pay again. And, smoola is hard to get. You should get 5-10 smoola each level up. 2. I have to watch an ad for every song I play. Okay, I get that you need someway to make money, but I play a lot of 30 sec to 20 songs and then I get a one minute ad? At least have the duration of the ad shorter or about the same length of the song. (This is my opinion, and I get it and I’m okay with if you can’t change the ads.) 3. The levels. It takes too long for you to level up. I really want to level up to get the classic guitar, it is relaxing, but I don’t want to pay like 495 smoola to get it. Also, it is the same for the Vocal Choir. It is so funny but I don't want to pay 495 smoola. Who has that much, anyway? (Not meant to be rude) I only have 17, haha! Like I said, this app is amazing. Please tale this as constructive criticism to make your app better. Sorry if this was offensive to you guys in any way. Thank you for making this app! Have a good day. Iab signing out!
Used to be great
by Pyrowo1f on 2018/03/20 20:53
This app used to be a lot of fun. I used to play it every day. Since then, I moved on, but I remembered the app and came back. It’s taken a turn for the worst now. You used to have an ad-free experience even as a free user. You could still watch ads to get the in-app currency, Smoola, so you could buy songs. I did this almost religiously day by day. You can still do this, too. However, now you also get an ad after every. Single. Song. And that’s assuming you own the song. If you don’t, you’ll need to watch an ad before you play the song, too. The composer feature is incredible, and the user created songs are wonderful. The fact that they only cost 25 Smoola a piece is awesome. The ability to share your performances with friends, family, and the world (through the in-app “World” feature and the Smule website) is cool, too. But the entire experience is completely ruined by the prevalence and disruptiveness of the endless ads. Unless, of course, you pay the subscription fee on a monthly, three month, or annual basis.
It’s great!!! But...
by Heggru on 2018/09/03 22:51
This is by far my favorite app of all time! But... it’s got a one thing that isn’t so great. when ever I try to watch an video to get more smoola, it lets me watch it but then doesn’t give me the smoola and I’ve tried over and over again but it still won’t work!!! And when ever I get free songs it says that I need to pay for them even after it lets me play them!!! And sooooo many of my favorite songs need VIP access and I don’t have the money for something a stupid as a couple of songs on an app!!! But I still love this app even when it kills me off of it repeatedly and sometimes forces me to delete it along with all the songs I’ve payed for!!! And don’t even get me stated on the freaking billions of ads!!!! They suckkkkk!!! And almost every time I mess up it either doesn’t say anything or says something completely different then what I did and I know what I did but it’s kinda annoying to have it not tell me.
It’s amazing a few fixes tho
by five stars girls on 2019/04/08 15:37
This game is absolutely amazing I love all of the songs they are difficult I like that.... But it could use a few fixes like it does freeze a lot that is a little bit annoying if you guys could fix that that would make my day also about the memberships why do all of every ones favorite song require a membership I am a little disappointed about that but it’s is still an amazing app a few another thing why is there so many pop ups after every song you have to either watch a video or see another pop up it is very annoying if you guys could fix it that would be great this app needs a few fixes but that’s ok because I still rated it 5 stars it is an amazing app I love it is addicting, fun, challenging, and I absolutely love it thanks for making this game such a successful game for every one😎😁😊🥳🤩
This app has gone downhill.
by Pinapplesonpizza on 2018/08/21 06:09
I used to thoroughly enjoy this app, but it has become consistently worse as time has gone on. There used to be occasional ads, which are understandable, as you do have to make money, but now there are ads before and after almost every song. In similar fashion, you used to be able to play your songs offline, however now, to foster more advertising, no doubt, you must be online to play. Songs you purchase also have developed a nasty tendency of disappearing from one’s list of songs, and are still playable without purchase if you search for them, however this is annoying when you just wish to scroll through yours songs and play one, and it disappeared without your knowing. There was a time I’d have rated this app 5 stars, but due to increasing problems that add up, I’m giving it 2. I’m going to keep it downloaded in case updates fix any of these problems, but for now I’m going to stop playing, so they don’t get advertising money that I don’t think they deserve off of me.
Some magic in magic piano smule
by sophieshopkins😊 on 2018/06/24 01:49
I used to not like this game at all. I was thinking about deleting the app last time I played, but when I played it again, some things changed. There is actually some songs I like that are free, but ads. When you click on a song to play, it says your free content will be available after this ad, and it’s really annoying. I’ve gotten used to it, but I feel like they should get rid of that. Tons of people are tired of ads on games, and maybe magic piano smule can get rid of the ads on this game. That would totally bring back a lot of people. I 85% of me thought it was a good idea to delete this app, but I’m lowering it to a 40% now because I’m kinda impressed. Also, it’s kind of cool how there’s a ton of options other than ads to get free smoola. And I like that it’s only 25 smoola for songs I like instead of like 50. But on the other hand, you don’t get much smoola at all when you level up. They should give you 5 smoola, not like two! I’ll give it one more stars than I did before.
AWESOME! Get it! its worth it!
by WaterAirFireEarth on 2018/07/13 02:05
Okay so i have probably had this app for like three years or something and i just recently came back to it and fell in love with it. and theres all these bad reviews like “ Oh theres too many adds” or “They all cost coins to get them!” Witch is bull because all games have adds try to think of one game on you're phone or iPad right now that doesn't have adds? Yeah you couldn't think of any could you. and its not like theres That many either. and for the people who say “oh well most of the songs cost coins!” Seriously? Theres a get more coins section and all you have to do is watch an add and u get enough coins for you're new song there. all i'm trying to say is this a great app and anyone who is thinking about getting it get it! because theres no hurt in giving it a try and if u don't like it then just delete it.
This is not fair
by Frankiew0415060 on 2017/09/23 14:25
Ok so my 6 year old brother had my phone and he knows everything about it so he added his finger print to the phone and I had the Touch ID for my Apple ID and I found out I was getting these charges I didn’t know what they were at first but then I checked it out and saw charges from magic piano I haven’t even played this game in like 2 months so when I saw I got charges I thought that it was a mistake but I called my card and they told me that about a month ago I applied for a subscription on the app magic piano like I said I haven’t played this game I’m forever the only person that played it was my little brother and since he had my finger print he purchased the subscription and no one knew he might’ve thought it was free because when the purchase screen shows up it says free trial key word free so my brother saw that and pressed the button he saw the fingerprint sign and but his finger this is not fair at all we didn’t even know we were being charged and we weren’t even playing the game this is really unfair and I will never download this game again
