Doesn’t render my touch

I cant even play the three fingered notes it just lags and then play like 2 of the notes
I don’t know

This game is so fun I spend hours playing this game
It’s ok
by Moongirl3 on 2020/11/22 18:52
It’s not as great as I had hoped. It’s really hard to get songs and it gets boring fast. Good songs though 🙂.
Sloth lover❤️❤️❤️🍭🙂
by cindee-loo on 2020/11/20 22:41
This app is very good and there could bet more songs but over all it is very adicting. And the songs are appropiate and it is so much fun. So I really suggust this app
Gave me a virus
by Conrack36 on 2020/11/19 16:02
I went to the free coins section that is in the app and i took a survey and it gave me a virus
Not good
by Lauren Wangy on 2020/11/18 03:57
I always have problems with this app. Sometimes it refuses to open. When it actually does, it tells me most of the songs were not able to download. So there’s really no point in having this app since it hardly works.
Why wouldn’t I not love it?!
by KWRencher on 2020/11/18 03:02
I love this app! Even though all the time I mess up! And thank you for adding the song someone you loved! Because...THAT’S ONE OF MY FAVORITE SONGS!!! Thank you for reading this short message!
Won’t let me publish songs
by Kristy Murray on 2020/11/17 14:15
When I try to publish a new song, it says I don’t have internet although I do, please fix this.
Not as good as it used to be.
by Alyssa Vanderwall on 2020/11/17 05:21
I remember when this game wasn’t a pay to play and was actually enjoyable. Songs werent short cut remixes of the what they were trying to be, and you were able to play EVERY song without any trouble. Too bad to see a once good game go to trash like this.

by RSM1973 on 2020/11/16 04:24
So you update the app but don’t add additional levels? I’ve been maxed out for several months now.
It was fun..
by ThuglifeMLG on 2020/11/15 22:46
I used to use this app all the time, it was great fun even if i wasn’t good at hard difficulties, but now the songs won’t download and it claims that i have internet issues when in reality I don’t, therefore it won’t let me play songs or even listen to them, all i get is the message: “could not download the song; check your internet connection”
Ad and smoola problems
by Sweet_beequeen on 2020/11/15 03:37
When I do an ad for free 5 smoola it doesn’t give me it to unlock a song so I do it again and still don’t work and when I do it again it doesn’t and then TRY AGAIN now it works but dude please fix it
Bugs!
by Navylove13 on 2020/11/15 03:03
This game is so glitchy that it’s impossible to play. Every time I try, I get an error.
THIS CRAP WONT SYNC
by duck DUCKY on 2020/11/15 01:57
I’ve been playing this game for a while and have payed to get songs, when I decided to download on my phone it keeps my level and all my data as the non-login. I’ve restarted and deleted this app multiple times to try to fix this problem. The help pages speaks nothing of this issue. I’m angry because I truly enjoyed this app but what am I supposed to do if my stuff isn’t there. A waste of all the time I put into it beforehand.
I’m so happy I could die right now
by Nightwillfall on 2020/11/14 00:18
Sorry had to say it. They fixed it they fix the watching ads so I can get smoola coins to get more music and not have to wait for a 1000 years for the level up bar to give me coins I nearly cried I was so happy. I can’t do karaoke with out the song the artist singing with me so karaoke is out of the question thank you creators 😱😁😁😭🤣
Fix my problem asap
by KoalaTeen on 2020/11/10 04:52
I love magic piano. But there are several problems. The “watch am ad and get 5 smulas” hasn’t been working. And also 32 out of 51 of my songs say “download failed. Please check your connection and try again.” If the songs have been removed fine. But I’m going to watch all my smulas back. That’s 32 times 25.
I love pianos I have wanted one ever since I was a little girl 👩🏼
by like awsome on 2020/11/10 03:25
I love this game it is so fun and I love it so much I can’t stop playing it because I love pianos I give a five star rate because I am so bored because of the corona 🦠 But I still love pianos 🎹 I love this game also because it helps me to get rid of all my negative emotions.like when my great grandfather passed away and I cried so much I love ❤️ him ☹️😞😔😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
Love this game
by Cheena-G on 2020/11/08 15:50
This is one of my favorite games to play! It’s so much fun and has all varieties of songs and difficulties. Pretty much any song you may be looking to play you’ll find a rendition of. I do wish there was a way to notate the songs I enjoy playing to be able to go back and replay, but aside from that definitely recommend!
Awful
by pidgeooooo on 2020/11/08 02:06
I stopped playing after you all deleted my entire library that I worked hard to build up for years. I redownloaded today and saw it was just as broken as it was when I last played it. There is no free way to get smoola, ads are broken, and of course my songs are all still gone. Never going to play this again unless this crap is fixed.
Smile is a frat game but fixes have to be in place
by Supersonic1991 on 2020/11/06 23:18
Smile is a great game to play if you are ever feeling bored. Play some of your favorite songs to your heart’s content as you relive your favorite memories. The content you upload to the smile website however does NOT match the song you played with the piano format you chose. Needs to be fixed, PLEASE! 😡
I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH
by piggienightmare9 on 2020/11/06 21:34
I love this game so much I used to play it all the time when I was little but then I got a new iPad and I forgot to reinstall it. Then I remembered the game so you downloaded it again and all I do is play this game. It makes me so happy and it’s so sad how much hate it gets. I will always love this game and only write good reviews on it. Please don’t change anything about it. I love you game and creators of the game ❤️
Loveable, life-long game! HERES SOME RECOMMENDATIONS
by fattestbitchontheblock on 2020/11/05 21:41
I’ve played this game since I was 11 years old and i’m almost 18 now. Let me just say, this app has improved insanely since the beginning and I’m super proud of the developers for opening the Composer ability. This has opened so many possibilities when it comes to music, I myself have purchased the pass to have full access to the library. It is a little pricey at $7.99 a week, but if your very deep into it then it shouldn’t be too much of a deal. I feel that long term users should get a discount if that was possible. Anyways, if the developers are still checking reviews and trying to improve their app, I feel like a perfect idea for improvement would be the ability to ORGANIZE your songs. Maybe you have a lot of classical songs and you would like them to be in a group. This is a KEY feature that would make navigating the app much more useful. Secondly, I would also recommend a feature that allows you to delete songs you didn’t enjoy playing, off of your songbook. Everyone has played a song they didn’t quite enjoy, but it stays on your songbook as long as you’ve played it. These two features would make the $7.99 a week pass much more worth it in my opinion. That’s all. Thank you guys!
Smule broken
by Axelle838 on 2020/11/05 21:33
Getting smule from watching videos has been broken for months. Makes it impossible to buy new songs
This, and Sing! used to be great...
by A Frustrated Player12345678910 on 2020/11/03 01:27
This game used to be awesome. It would challenge me and my ability and help keep me focused. You could watch adds to earn songs and their weren’t as many adds as there are now... sing(now called smule)was great, amazing even. I was able to sing with people and sing my favorite songs(sometimes even with popular artists) even though they weren’t live it was still cool. But now smule has gone the direction of money. Games that I would call legendary are now boring! There are way too many adds and not much of a chance to have fun. It’s all about the money. And that is ruining a great game like this. Just like it did with Minecraft!! I miss these old games but now their gone. I will be deleting this soon and I probably won’t download a game from smule ever again. Don’t download! It’s not worth it...
Smoola
by read1294 on 2020/11/01 18:36
I used to have this app when I was about 6-7 years old. Now that I have the app now, I think everything about it is great. Well, except for the smoola. I was on level 7 and was only able to afford one song. This I found very disappointing. When you level up you only get 1 smoola, and for the achievements you only get 1-2 smoola. Despite this, the app is great! I would just appreciate if you would fix this. Sincerely, A person
Great!
by Gamejr. on 2020/11/01 18:35
I love this app! I would recommend it! Although, a lot of songs cost a lot of coins. I really wan tot but a bunch of Demi Lovato songs. It just takes so long to get coins and earn them. I would recommend maybe and easier way to coins faster and more. Other wise great app! Definitely worth recommending!
Offline?
by harleyquinzel1018 on 2020/11/01 14:08
I remember that you used to be able to play offline with the songs in your songbook and now it doesn’t let me. I miss being able to play offline.
Ad! Ad! Ad!
by Mama_Pike07 on 2020/10/31 05:23
I hate after every. single. thing. I do, THERES AN AD! I understand been paid to play ads but seriously??? The excessive amount of ads takes literally all the fun out of this truly awesome game. Very unfortunate.
Had this back on my iPad 2
by hi man how are ya on 2020/10/30 02:04
You NEED an iPad to play this well. The button inputs are way to close and I find myself constantly missing buttons to press. But an iPad makes it far easier
No Download?
by SnowFolem1238 on 2020/10/26 16:37
A lot of the songs in my songbook won’t let me play them any more, including five, FIVE, of my composed songs. They just say it failed to download. This is very disappointing, as I put a lot of work into those song and now they cannot be played; not to mention all the other songs that I spent smoola on and now cannot play. Please fix this quickly.
Pay for your own compositions :(
by yung dagger dik on 2020/10/26 06:05
I believe if someone took the time to provide music to your audience you should at least give them their own composition free to play but this is not the case. You need to pay the subscription or do 30 things for the “smoola” needed to play your piece. This is truly disgraceful. I won’t even bring up the amount of ads and no offline capability.
Ok app but WAY too much money for subscription
by TheRiot81 on 2020/10/25 16:51
This app is a decent piano playing app with a good catalogue of songs to play. However, what they charge for a subscription (which you absolutely need if you want to play more than 1 song per day) is completely overpriced! Save your money and buy a real keyboard and play for real.
Doesn’t even open
by Leapeed2000 on 2020/10/25 00:40
Can’t even open the app. Just loads indefinitely
Problem with “composer”
by Crystal_Leopard on 2020/10/22 18:03
I had been working on “composing” a song on this app for days. It’s now been finished for months. I can’t publish it. It always says “song failed to publish. Please check your internet connection and try again.” However, my connection is perfectly fine. At this point, I am 100% sure that there are absolutely no problems with my WiFi connectivity. I also checked it by using a different device. I tried publishing an unfinished song and it worked. So obviously my WiFi isn’t the problem since there was no problem publishing a song using a different device. I have checked on this problem after every update but it still persists. I’m quite disappointed that I am unable to publish a song that I worked on for several hours and days.
Trash
by u/dank memer bot on 2020/10/22 00:13
This used to be a good game, it really was. Until the developers decided money was more important. Everyone is going to delete your game. Fix this trash.
Great! Composer could use a bit of work though
by Melana :) on 2020/10/21 16:44
Honestly I’ve seen a lot of reviews saying that this app has a bunch of problems, but I disagree. Sure, it has a tiny glitch every week or so, but that’s no reason to uninstall it and say that it glitches all the time. I have apps that actually DO glitch multiple times a day, and this is not one of them. The only thing that SLIGHTLY annoys me is that so power shuts down randomly. But it saves your progress, and everything is fine after that, so it doesn’t really bother me that much. The real reason I’m writing this review is because of one TINY little detail of something think they could improve. I am a composer, not actually, but I compose on this app. I am a musician, and it annoys me when they don’t give you the option to do things that are a little more complex in composer. Like changing time signatures in the middle, giving the ‘piece’ dynamics, or putting in a triplet. I have found ways around the triplet thing, but it’s very difficult. I also wish that they would put some lower notes in, as the notes go very high but not very low. I also feel like more complex time signatures should be a thing as well. The other thing is it’s hard to get smoola, and the songs cost a lot of it. I feel like that issue is self-explanatory, but I wish they would do something about that. Now that my suggestions are out of the way, I can say that this app is great. It’s so different from the other piano apps that I’ve tried downloading (which I uninstalled after a week because I didn’t like them), and I love it’s uniqueness. Playing the songs are very fun, and doing it with the artist singing is even better and creative. I would recommend this app for anyone, regardless of it’s tiny issues.
stuck with the same few songs
by YeriTheUnicorn on 2020/10/21 13:19
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. Plus now it’s telling me it can’t download my songs, so now I can’t even play my OWN songs. This app has multiple problems and it’s being ignored, so I’ve given up on it
Can y’all please fix this
by FamousOrangeCat :3 on 2020/10/18 18:58
I can’t get free smula by watching ads anymore.
songs won’t open
by Rojin-san on 2020/10/17 22:53
hi so most of the songs I had in “my songs” won’t open. it gives this error that they can’t be downloaded... what’s this about? I love some of my songs and I would like to play them... I am just hoping that this would be fixed with the next update which doesn’t seem to come! been waiting for the update for a long time... I’d appreciate it if you could fix this problem. I WANT MY SONGS BACK.
One of the greatest games I've ever played!
by brookieswaysway on 2020/10/15 23:34
Now, I have an iPhone 4s (it's a hand me down) and I can't download many good games, but when I DO find a game compatible with my IPhone, it doesn't open. But Magic Piano actually works and it has NO lag! It is one of the GREATEST games I have ever played! Thanks for making this smule!!!
My creations aren’t fast enough and I can’t report to songs.
by joeydiiorio on 2020/10/14 22:30
I need more than 220 BPM on my composed songs. And I want to report songs. AND I want more songs because one I think maybe it would be my 9th if I made it and it said I didn’t have Wi-Fi connection when I did so I couldn’t make it. I also think you should make easy one note at a time, medium either 2 or 3 notes at a time, and hard stay how it is (how it’s composed). I figured out the changing easy part in the song called “Turkish March: Impossible.
App hardly works!!
by ChicaBaka on 2020/10/13 23:07
I literally cannot play any of the songs i already got with coins and the watching videos for coins option doesn’t give you coins, no songs will load without me getting a message telling me to check my connection, only a few selected songs work which is boring, please fix this app, this is one of my favorite apps for many years, this app even got me through not having electricity and depending on a generator after getting hit by hurricanes pretty bad and brings back a lot of memories with family and it’s a shame nothing is being done to fix these issues!!
For the love of gawd!!!! ADS ADS and more ADS
by Menace10101 on 2020/10/11 09:14
Play a ditty for 20 secs then be forced to watch three GD ads! It is total garbage.
No sound
by Ccgirard on 2020/10/10 21:43
I can hear the ads, but sound stopped working yesterday on the songs and still not working today. No fun if you can’t hear what you’re playing
Smoola problems
by foreshadow011 on 2020/10/10 14:39
I’ve loved this game for years but recently I’ve been having problems. It started out with not getting smoola from the ads which was very annoying. Now there’s another problem. When I click on an ad it says no offerings today or something like that. At first I thought it was just my internet, but it’s everywhere I go! Now don’t get me wrong this is a very fun game. I’ve had it for almost three years! You just have to fix these problems
FIX THIS
by Skydivejenna on 2020/10/08 19:12
So I have been a long time player( like to level 60) and my smoola stopped working. I level up, and it doesn’t give me smoola. It didn’t bother me that I had to watch adds to earn smoola but now the adds don’t work either. This game was the only thing I played up until now. I have like 100 songs on my account but now it won’t let me download the either. Please fix this so I can continue playing. This game was so fun🙁

Magic Piano
by Del52mas on 2020/10/06 07:34
I do love this app although sometimes when you're offered a free song it will give you one that you've already played. Also under free songs there's rarely one to try. There’s a message saying a new version of this app is coming. This was months ago. Still no upgrade or another? I finished level 101

Money grab
by ElG617 on 2020/10/02 19:20
Don’t bother watching ads no smula is awarded. They basically just want you to subscribe. Would be better if I could at least permanently buy the songs.
Really
by Margrk0521 on 2020/10/02 12:09
Don’t much appreicate signing up for a FREE trial and then being charged basically $11 for only 7 days of use like what the hell is that about?! Have properly asked for a refund
its fun but not...
by bubblez110123 on 2020/10/01 00:41
ive had the game for about 7 or 8 years and have had a lot of fun with it. but its just kinda lost its spark. i mean ads are ducked up you HAVE to dupe a song if u want it and it hasn't been updated in i think 4 or 5 years. Now do note the last time i wrote a review they fixed ( for about 2 months anyways) one of the major problems i rambled about in that review. buuuuut here i am... again 1) you can’t get any in game currency unless you buy it. end of story. you can waste your time watching ads but it will give you nothing this means the only my way to get a song and stay interested is to dupe it. which is technically stealing 2) all songs are duped. on my pricing i’ve got almost 130 songs. i only made about 4 of them. but you have to do this to be able to use the app. ( for those who don’t know his to avoid ads just look up free song magic piano on yt) overall id say that ads need to not be the main way to get in game currency. there is a daily competition where you can get double points for about 24 hours. your score should give you points. whenever you play a song could give you points. they just need to revamp it or its gonna die. i know technically it already is but i see a few pol here like me who dont want to get rid of it but at some point or another will when problems keep arising. smule if you are reading this stop focusing on sing and pay a little attention to us please
Good game but I have a problem
by Skittle_girl657 on 2020/09/29 13:49
This is a really good game but unfortunately I had to get all new songs because I couldn’t log into my old account but it’s not letting me watch videos for smoola so I don’t know what to do can you help me
A review i guess
by kmcoop02 on 2020/09/29 04:40
The app is good and all but without premium there is a ad before and after every song so I can’t give it a higher rating than just a stupid mobile game (because it is).
This is stupid
by bro why?😭😭😭😭😭 on 2020/09/26 22:28
I made a smule account like 2 years ago and was non stop grinding, and I try logging back in and it doesn’t say log in to smule account This is stupid, please help me.
Used to be fun
by justagaymer on 2020/09/25 21:40
Easy mode used to be super fun you only needed to use one finger now you need two and that’s too difficult for me which is why I never did anything but easy mode
Changes You Can Add
by Judy McSmartiePants on 2020/09/25 20:15
Overall, I think this game is calm and relaxing. I just wish you could get coins more easily. For example, every time you level up, you usually get 1-5 coins. The songs usually cost around 25-50. So you have to level up A LOT to get some short songs, which to me is very unfair. Another thing I wish you would change are the ads. Every time you finish a song (which is usually 2-3 minutes long) you get an ad. Sometimes, before you even start the song. This gets pretty annoying the more you play. Even after all that, I still would recommend the game to music lovers! It contains almost every song I know, ranging from K-Pop (im an ARMY :D) to just mozart! I highly suggest you download this. ( This is only a review, please don’t take it to heart :) )
Can’t sign in with Facebook
by SingSmile on 2020/09/25 04:10
I’ve enjoyed this app in the past, so I downloaded it again despite the fallen reviews. I wanted to see if my progress and inventory of songs were preserved by signing in with Facebook. Alas! I’m met instead with an “error” or an “oops!,” depending on whether I sign in with the Facebook app or a browser (the latter of which required me to delete the Facebook app first, by the way). Please fix this app so we can enjoy it again!
WiFi problems
by loving pokemon and rise up :) on 2020/09/25 00:17
So, I decided to play a tad bit of faded or demons. When it finished the add, I hit easy and it said connection failed. I restarted my iPad, did it again. Refreshed the app. Did it again. Took every single thing open and closed it all. Did it again, please take the problem away. My iPad is in perfect WiFi rooms and it still does not work, the living room is the one with the best. Wen’t in there, didn’t work. FIX THE APP! SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH ITS FINDING WIFI CONNECTIONS! ALL APPS ARE WORKING FINE! AND THIS GAME IS NOT! a please fix this solution, I wish to play again after a month of not playing this game properly when it kept kicking me out when I hit play on it, just solve this WiFi problem.
Best game
by ballora1025 on 2020/09/24 17:17
I usually play roblox and this the only thing i don’t like is adds
Adds
by Freckle Face 1313 on 2020/09/24 16:41
Good morning, I love this app and play it a lot but there is one specific add that has a high pitched girl screaming because of a fire. When I play the piano on this I turn my volume all the way up. when I press next when I get my star rating it continues to hurt me ear. Thank you, from,Reviewer
Used to be better
by GhostAnimoji on 2020/09/24 03:18
The Magic Piano used to be the game of all games. It was a nice challenge between friends and family, and it was fun. Now however, they have switched to a money making approach rather than keeping the app engaging. After each song you finish, you get an ad. After every action you take, you get an ad. You don’t earn many smoola and you level up very veeery slowly. Furthermore, the only way to get any free smoola doesn’t even work! How come does Smule thrown so many ads in my face and when I want to watch an ad for free smoola, it always says there are no ads currently available? Also, the “surveys and miscellaneous” smoola earning section does not work. I have tried many times and haven’t gotten any smoola. Finally, a lot of the songs I got a long time ago require me to watch an ad before playing them, and then another ad after. And some songs I bought don’t even work anymore with the error that they can’t download. All in all, it’s an amazing app. I love it and I have been using it for a looong time but it has changed for the worse.
Erm..
by Ya mommaz mama on 2020/09/24 00:01
I’m sure ya can do better. I kept on downloading this app over and over because it always kicked me out. Every time I download this the next day I have to wait like a long time to play. I went to go make a sandwich and then I found out I loaded in but my iPad went off. So as soon as I got back on it glitch and kicked me out. I’m pretty sure ya can fix that. On the other hand good app!
Good but there is a problem with smoola
by Fernanda knowing on 2020/09/23 19:59
One I did not like how they put smoola almost on every song even gravity falls theme! Two it’s not a bad app dust not the best it crashes my games if I leave it open.
Barely playable anymore
by Mynicknameforthisreview on 2020/09/22 22:30
I used to LOVE this game when I was a kid and had so many fond memories of it. When I redownloaded it on my phone a year or two ago I had to start over, but I thought it would be fine. For a game that I used to love so much, I rarely ever play it, because it’s just not what it used to be. There are WAY too many ads and everytime I try to watch an ad to get more smoola it just says there’s no ads available. You should be able to watch ads and then buy a song, it makes no sense that I can’t do that. There’s a way to have ads in your app and make money, Smule, while still making sure the game is fun for people. Point is, it’s barely even playable anymore. It seems like Smule doesn’t even care about the players, just about making money, so I think they deserve 1 star. I might delete it as I never play it anymore, but I’m just really mad and disappointed in what it has become. I hope Smule changes things, but I’m pretty sure they don’t care about what their players think.
glitches every time i try to watch a vid!!
by Emma Mayhugh on 2020/09/21 23:33
so im gonna start by saying i love this game it’s so addicting once u start playing u can’t stop!! but there’s one thing that’s annoying me... every time i try to watch an add for coins it keeps telling me there’s “no more offers for today” and doesn’t let me watch an add (ᗒᗣᗕ)՞ its been happening for a couple of days the first time i tried it i thought ok theres no more ill just have to try tmw but when i tried the next day it still said that 😭overall the game if fantastic and theres nothing else wrong with it! but please fix my game 😓🥶
Interface doesn’t work on medium and hard
by dj12247 on 2020/09/19 22:04
I used to love this app and recently re-downloaded it. However, any time I try to play a song on medium or hard, the app doesn’t recognize three or four-finger taps. This makes it impossible to play at higher levels and takes away all the fun. I hope this issue is fixed soon.
The ads
by MattIvy07 on 2020/09/17 17:58
Pretty good but my god the ads their before and after every song AND ITS THE SAME EXACT ONE
Great overall
by CherryBlossom9184 on 2020/09/15 17:55
For the years I’ve had it, it’s been great. More so lately I’ve gotten good at using the composer for writing my own songs, (be it most of them are unfinished 😅) but recently it wasn’t working where it won’t let my into composer at all, but I’m not sure if it’s just my tablet or if there’s a bug issue. Anyway, besides that star costing issue, full marks from me.
It’s terribly disappointing !
by Mahsajessybob on 2020/09/15 17:20
It doesn’t even play free songs! It says the content will be shown after ads but it doesn’t even work then! Aweful!
ad problem
by huhuyuuiurfiuurh on 2020/09/14 18:07
when o try to get free smoola is says wait a little bit and when i do when i try again it will play a video and crash and you don’t get smoola and sometimes it will just crash either way please fix this
Free smoola ads not working
by jnuehuxebxjnxje on 2020/09/14 18:03
Everytime I try the game crashes and I don’t get my smoola please fix this
Nowadays Terrible
by EP_06 on 2020/09/12 17:48
The app used to be amazing. I loved playing the songs everyday when I was younger. Nowadays it is infested with ads and crappy songs made by the users.
Ads
by harry potter grifffindor on 2020/09/11 16:49
I really like playing this game it's really enjoyable other than the ads. If I want to play a song it'll give me an ad but I'll get kicked out of the game and this happens every time I try to watch ads for smoola or just to play a free song so it's hard to even play new songs or get smoola.
Issues
by TheSingingGuy on 2020/09/08 13:41
I have had this app for many years, love it...but lately every song I click on to play won’t download. Ridiculous.
Ads, VIP, smoola
by Meee todai on 2020/09/08 10:34
I used to love this app but I don’t like it at all anymore because there’s VERY few free songs and every other song you either have to spend like an hour watching ads to pay for it through Smoola, or you have to pay. Lame.
Im impressed
by we are loving! on 2020/09/07 18:44
Hey there! Just wanted to write something. So really I’m amazed with everything in this app, but what I mostly like about this app is that you can add songs through the composer which is what I’m literally doing all day, so yeah and I love being able to play other people’s songs that they put in! This app makes me feel like I can actually play the piano and have fun while I play! Ok thanks for reading this bye.
Umm
by whatislife145 on 2020/09/03 23:32
You can hardly play any songs without ‘smoola’, which are hard to get. On top of that, the game is always telling me to ‘play faster’ while playing slow songs. Please please change that!
Good but..
by Meowkitty52106 on 2020/09/02 19:58
I have loved this app for years!!! But I am no longer earning coins when I should! This app owes me at least 18 coins and I haven't gotten them. Therefore I can't get more songs. Then, today, it deleted all my progress star wise. I had three stars on every level on all the songs I had and now I have zero. PLEASE FIX!!!
soooo many ads
by duwkurfiudhhrhtu on 2020/08/27 13:55
i’ve played this on and off for years, but now i don’t even have the motivation to play for more than ten minutes. you can’t breathe without an ad. wanna play a song? ad. finished playing a song? ad. it’s constant, and it’s annoying. the in-game currency is wayyy too hard to get. vip is way too expensive for a decent, repetitive game. this app used to be fun, but now it’s a blatant cash grab.
I can’t play my songs?
by colinzzzz on 2020/08/26 22:03
Smule is a great way to play the piano without lugging one into your home. I am very happy with this app, but sometimes it gets on my nerves. For example the ads are terrible. They pop up every time I finish playing a song. Some ads are inappropriate. I really hate it when they say “You can no longer play this song”, and then try to get me to pay for a subscription. It is really not necessary. And... the VIP section. Almost half of the songs are in that category. Most of my favorites, too.
Pretty good
by Karalou23 on 2020/08/24 17:28
It’s pretty good over all. Most of the songs are good. But I watched three videos for free token things and it didn’t give me anything. Fix it?
Won’t let me into the composter.
by Crowncity on 2020/08/24 12:12
Hi so the game won’t let me in the composter. I don’t know if it’s a bug but I know that it won’t let me in please fix it ok by
Too expensive
by rettyiiu on 2020/08/22 21:36
Why would you charge 20 dollars a month but 50 dollars for the year? Than you have 9.99 a week? Way too expensive for how buggy it is as well as how a lot of these songs aren’t legit they are just created by other players.
Eh
by GnaderP🏍💨 on 2020/08/22 01:02
Needs rap music
Thank you!
by Ranky Doodle on 2020/08/21 05:20
Thanks a lot for fixing the game. I can get free Smoolas again.
Does not have any sound
by Caye12 on 2020/08/21 04:53
Fix this issue
please fix the glitch
by SkyRaver13 on 2020/08/19 19:34
I've been playing this app for several years and every so often it gets a glitch. I still like it because it's easy to play and hear the melodies. I have VIP subscription to skip ads and play any song. However... please fix the current glitch! Several of my favorite songs are not playing! It says to check my internet connection! And then randomly I can play other songs. Thanks.
Smoola ad problem
by Joebshdhdhdhdhsh on 2020/08/17 12:58
I watched the ad and then I got no smoola this is annoying because of course every song cost money I’m deleting the app very annoying
Ads, Smoola, and VIP blocks make it very hard to enjoy
by Miles Wolfers on 2020/08/17 05:49
WAY too many ads. Want to play a free song? Ad. Finish playing a song and want to play next difficulty? Ad. Want to do literally anything? AD. STOP WITH ALL THE ADS. Also Smoola (in-game currency) are almost impossible to get! You might get one when you level up which takes forever to do, and half the time when you try to watch an ad to get some for free it crashes the app and/or you don't get anything out of it other than a cruddy ad for an app no one with an iq over 0 is interested in. About 70-80% of the songs are unavailable to play without paying for VIPmembership, which just wouldn't be worth it for an already low-quality game. It's supposed to be a simple relaxing game, but all the issues make it more frustrating than it's worth. Lots of problems and each update only says "bug fixes" and makes no discernible changes. I played this as a kid and don't remember this many ads. I actually enjoyed it then but not so much now.
Too many ads
by Bear_Clau on 2020/08/17 02:57
The app was better when you didn’t have to watch an ad every time you wanted to play a free song. There’s also pop up ads after most of the songs. I had this years ago and loved it, now it’s awkward to use having to stop every 15 seconds for an ad that’s longer than the songs.
Inappropriate ads
by Pls fix it. on 2020/08/16 23:16
Why does an app that is rated for ages 4+ have inappropriate adult ads?

Fun game to download when your bored
I love the songs I played but when I watched the adds for smule it didn’t give me anything.

:/
ehh-
by Ingrid 💕💕 on 2020/08/14 06:03
it’s a very good app but wayyyy too many ads, there’s some games that give you a lot of ads but they atleast give you a 1-2 minute break from them but with this app whichever song you choose will give you an ad and it’s so annoying! Also the fact that the ads are all the same?! What?!! atleast give me different games I’ll be interested in!
Free Songs aren’t even free
by Sibow on 2020/08/13 22:46
The free songs playing hard and then after the ad they tell you they’re unavailable to use if you wanna play them again, there’s another ad. Nothing “free” about it
Used to be nice
by TNSCrew on 2020/08/12 14:54
It’s a fun little app, but in the past few months I’ve been unable to get the in game money by watching ads, which makes the app completely useless since you get 1 smoola every level, and songs cost between 25-75 smoola. I’ve tried to get in contact with customer support, but I don’t think they care and are trying to make people spend actual money rather than watch ads. Pretty crappy.
Smoola and ad problems
by gamerwskills on 2020/08/10 17:54
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. Those problems seem to bug me but overall this app is pretty 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.
its fun but not...
by bubblez110123 on 2020/10/01 00:41
ive had the game for about 7 or 8 years and have had a lot of fun with it. but its just kinda lost its spark. i mean ads are ducked up you HAVE to dupe a song if u want it and it hasn't been updated in i think 4 or 5 years. Now do note the last time i wrote a review they fixed ( for about 2 months anyways) one of the major problems i rambled about in that review. buuuuut here i am... again 1) you can’t get any in game currency unless you buy it. end of story. you can waste your time watching ads but it will give you nothing this means the only my way to get a song and stay interested is to dupe it. which is technically stealing 2) all songs are duped. on my pricing i’ve got almost 130 songs. i only made about 4 of them. but you have to do this to be able to use the app. ( for those who don’t know his to avoid ads just look up free song magic piano on yt) overall id say that ads need to not be the main way to get in game currency. there is a daily competition where you can get double points for about 24 hours. your score should give you points. whenever you play a song could give you points. they just need to revamp it or its gonna die. i know technically it already is but i see a few pol here like me who dont want to get rid of it but at some point or another will when problems keep arising. smule if you are reading this stop focusing on sing and pay a little attention to us please
Loveable, life-long game! HERES SOME RECOMMENDATIONS
by fattestbitchontheblock on 2020/11/05 21:41
I’ve played this game since I was 11 years old and i’m almost 18 now. Let me just say, this app has improved insanely since the beginning and I’m super proud of the developers for opening the Composer ability. This has opened so many possibilities when it comes to music, I myself have purchased the pass to have full access to the library. It is a little pricey at $7.99 a week, but if your very deep into it then it shouldn’t be too much of a deal. I feel that long term users should get a discount if that was possible. Anyways, if the developers are still checking reviews and trying to improve their app, I feel like a perfect idea for improvement would be the ability to ORGANIZE your songs. Maybe you have a lot of classical songs and you would like them to be in a group. This is a KEY feature that would make navigating the app much more useful. Secondly, I would also recommend a feature that allows you to delete songs you didn’t enjoy playing, off of your songbook. Everyone has played a song they didn’t quite enjoy, but it stays on your songbook as long as you’ve played it. These two features would make the $7.99 a week pass much more worth it in my opinion. That’s all. Thank you guys!
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.

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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Really?
by g-c-hoo on 2020/06/20 18:13
This used to be a great app. But now all sorts of problems have surfaced. The first one is a terrible glitch that ruins the whole game. I am currently trying to earn achievements to earn smoola. The one I’m doing right now is play ten songs perfectly. I keep trying to play songs, but as I am tapping the screen, say on the right side, it will say I’m also tapping on the left and will say that I’m tapping with too many fingers! This makes it impossible to complete the achievement. The second one is how hard it is to earn smoola. To earn them you either have to level up, or earn an achievement. It is extremely hard to level up and as I said before that glitch makes it very hard to earn achievements. The reason it is hard to level up is that it barely gives you any xp after you finish a song. You need about 10,000 xp to level up where I’m at. But when you finish a song that lasts longer than three minutes it only gives you 300 xp.
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.
Used to be better
by GhostAnimoji on 2020/09/24 03:18
The Magic Piano used to be the game of all games. It was a nice challenge between friends and family, and it was fun. Now however, they have switched to a money making approach rather than keeping the app engaging. After each song you finish, you get an ad. After every action you take, you get an ad. You don’t earn many smoola and you level up very veeery slowly. Furthermore, the only way to get any free smoola doesn’t even work! How come does Smule thrown so many ads in my face and when I want to watch an ad for free smoola, it always says there are no ads currently available? Also, the “surveys and miscellaneous” smoola earning section does not work. I have tried many times and haven’t gotten any smoola. Finally, a lot of the songs I got a long time ago require me to watch an ad before playing them, and then another ad after. And some songs I bought don’t even work anymore with the error that they can’t download. All in all, it’s an amazing app. I love it and I have been using it for a looong time but it has changed for the worse.
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.
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 😘😍😃😀😅😄😁☺️🙂😇😉😌😏🤔🤗
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 :(
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 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.😒🙏🏻
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.
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 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.

I don’t know

This game is so fun I spend hours playing this game
It’s ok
by Moongirl3 on 2020/11/22 18:52
It’s not as great as I had hoped. It’s really hard to get songs and it gets boring fast. Good songs though 🙂.
Sloth lover❤️❤️❤️🍭🙂
by cindee-loo on 2020/11/20 22:41
This app is very good and there could bet more songs but over all it is very adicting. And the songs are appropiate and it is so much fun. So I really suggust this app
Gave me a virus
by Conrack36 on 2020/11/19 16:02
I went to the free coins section that is in the app and i took a survey and it gave me a virus
Not good
by Lauren Wangy on 2020/11/18 03:57
I always have problems with this app. Sometimes it refuses to open. When it actually does, it tells me most of the songs were not able to download. So there’s really no point in having this app since it hardly works.
Why wouldn’t I not love it?!
by KWRencher on 2020/11/18 03:02
I love this app! Even though all the time I mess up! And thank you for adding the song someone you loved! Because...THAT’S ONE OF MY FAVORITE SONGS!!! Thank you for reading this short message!
Won’t let me publish songs
by Kristy Murray on 2020/11/17 14:15
When I try to publish a new song, it says I don’t have internet although I do, please fix this.
Not as good as it used to be.
by Alyssa Vanderwall on 2020/11/17 05:21
I remember when this game wasn’t a pay to play and was actually enjoyable. Songs werent short cut remixes of the what they were trying to be, and you were able to play EVERY song without any trouble. Too bad to see a once good game go to trash like this.

by RSM1973 on 2020/11/16 04:24
So you update the app but don’t add additional levels? I’ve been maxed out for several months now.
It was fun..
by ThuglifeMLG on 2020/11/15 22:46
I used to use this app all the time, it was great fun even if i wasn’t good at hard difficulties, but now the songs won’t download and it claims that i have internet issues when in reality I don’t, therefore it won’t let me play songs or even listen to them, all i get is the message: “could not download the song; check your internet connection”
Ad and smoola problems
by Sweet_beequeen on 2020/11/15 03:37
When I do an ad for free 5 smoola it doesn’t give me it to unlock a song so I do it again and still don’t work and when I do it again it doesn’t and then TRY AGAIN now it works but dude please fix it
Bugs!
by Navylove13 on 2020/11/15 03:03
This game is so glitchy that it’s impossible to play. Every time I try, I get an error.
THIS CRAP WONT SYNC
by duck DUCKY on 2020/11/15 01:57
I’ve been playing this game for a while and have payed to get songs, when I decided to download on my phone it keeps my level and all my data as the non-login. I’ve restarted and deleted this app multiple times to try to fix this problem. The help pages speaks nothing of this issue. I’m angry because I truly enjoyed this app but what am I supposed to do if my stuff isn’t there. A waste of all the time I put into it beforehand.
I’m so happy I could die right now
by Nightwillfall on 2020/11/14 00:18
Sorry had to say it. They fixed it they fix the watching ads so I can get smoola coins to get more music and not have to wait for a 1000 years for the level up bar to give me coins I nearly cried I was so happy. I can’t do karaoke with out the song the artist singing with me so karaoke is out of the question thank you creators 😱😁😁😭🤣
Fix my problem asap
by KoalaTeen on 2020/11/10 04:52
I love magic piano. But there are several problems. The “watch am ad and get 5 smulas” hasn’t been working. And also 32 out of 51 of my songs say “download failed. Please check your connection and try again.” If the songs have been removed fine. But I’m going to watch all my smulas back. That’s 32 times 25.
I love pianos I have wanted one ever since I was a little girl 👩🏼

I love this game it is so fun and I love it so much I can’t stop playing it because I love pianos I give a five star rate because I am so bored because of the corona 🦠 But I still love pianos 🎹 I love this game also because it helps me to get rid of all my negative emotions.like when my great grandfather passed away and I cried so much I love ❤️ him ☹️😞😔😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
Love this game
by Cheena-G on 2020/11/08 15:50
This is one of my favorite games to play! It’s so much fun and has all varieties of songs and difficulties. Pretty much any song you may be looking to play you’ll find a rendition of. I do wish there was a way to notate the songs I enjoy playing to be able to go back and replay, but aside from that definitely recommend!
Awful
by pidgeooooo on 2020/11/08 02:06
I stopped playing after you all deleted my entire library that I worked hard to build up for years. I redownloaded today and saw it was just as broken as it was when I last played it. There is no free way to get smoola, ads are broken, and of course my songs are all still gone. Never going to play this again unless this crap is fixed.
Smile is a frat game but fixes have to be in place
by Supersonic1991 on 2020/11/06 23:18
Smile is a great game to play if you are ever feeling bored. Play some of your favorite songs to your heart’s content as you relive your favorite memories. The content you upload to the smile website however does NOT match the song you played with the piano format you chose. Needs to be fixed, PLEASE! 😡
I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH
by piggienightmare9 on 2020/11/06 21:34
I love this game so much I used to play it all the time when I was little but then I got a new iPad and I forgot to reinstall it. Then I remembered the game so you downloaded it again and all I do is play this game. It makes me so happy and it’s so sad how much hate it gets. I will always love this game and only write good reviews on it. Please don’t change anything about it. I love you game and creators of the game ❤️
Loveable, life-long game! HERES SOME RECOMMENDATIONS
by fattestbitchontheblock on 2020/11/05 21:41
I’ve played this game since I was 11 years old and i’m almost 18 now. Let me just say, this app has improved insanely since the beginning and I’m super proud of the developers for opening the Composer ability. This has opened so many possibilities when it comes to music, I myself have purchased the pass to have full access to the library. It is a little pricey at $7.99 a week, but if your very deep into it then it shouldn’t be too much of a deal. I feel that long term users should get a discount if that was possible. Anyways, if the developers are still checking reviews and trying to improve their app, I feel like a perfect idea for improvement would be the ability to ORGANIZE your songs. Maybe you have a lot of classical songs and you would like them to be in a group. This is a KEY feature that would make navigating the app much more useful. Secondly, I would also recommend a feature that allows you to delete songs you didn’t enjoy playing, off of your songbook. Everyone has played a song they didn’t quite enjoy, but it stays on your songbook as long as you’ve played it. These two features would make the $7.99 a week pass much more worth it in my opinion. That’s all. Thank you guys!
Smule broken
by Axelle838 on 2020/11/05 21:33
Getting smule from watching videos has been broken for months. Makes it impossible to buy new songs
This, and Sing! used to be great...
by A Frustrated Player12345678910 on 2020/11/03 01:27
This game used to be awesome. It would challenge me and my ability and help keep me focused. You could watch adds to earn songs and their weren’t as many adds as there are now... sing(now called smule)was great, amazing even. I was able to sing with people and sing my favorite songs(sometimes even with popular artists) even though they weren’t live it was still cool. But now smule has gone the direction of money. Games that I would call legendary are now boring! There are way too many adds and not much of a chance to have fun. It’s all about the money. And that is ruining a great game like this. Just like it did with Minecraft!! I miss these old games but now their gone. I will be deleting this soon and I probably won’t download a game from smule ever again. Don’t download! It’s not worth it...
Smoola
by read1294 on 2020/11/01 18:36
I used to have this app when I was about 6-7 years old. Now that I have the app now, I think everything about it is great. Well, except for the smoola. I was on level 7 and was only able to afford one song. This I found very disappointing. When you level up you only get 1 smoola, and for the achievements you only get 1-2 smoola. Despite this, the app is great! I would just appreciate if you would fix this. Sincerely, A person
Great!
by Gamejr. on 2020/11/01 18:35
I love this app! I would recommend it! Although, a lot of songs cost a lot of coins. I really wan tot but a bunch of Demi Lovato songs. It just takes so long to get coins and earn them. I would recommend maybe and easier way to coins faster and more. Other wise great app! Definitely worth recommending!
Offline?
by harleyquinzel1018 on 2020/11/01 14:08
I remember that you used to be able to play offline with the songs in your songbook and now it doesn’t let me. I miss being able to play offline.
Ad! Ad! Ad!
by Mama_Pike07 on 2020/10/31 05:23
I hate after every. single. thing. I do, THERES AN AD! I understand been paid to play ads but seriously??? The excessive amount of ads takes literally all the fun out of this truly awesome game. Very unfortunate.
Had this back on my iPad 2
by hi man how are ya on 2020/10/30 02:04
You NEED an iPad to play this well. The button inputs are way to close and I find myself constantly missing buttons to press. But an iPad makes it far easier
No Download?
by SnowFolem1238 on 2020/10/26 16:37
A lot of the songs in my songbook won’t let me play them any more, including five, FIVE, of my composed songs. They just say it failed to download. This is very disappointing, as I put a lot of work into those song and now they cannot be played; not to mention all the other songs that I spent smoola on and now cannot play. Please fix this quickly.
Pay for your own compositions :(
by yung dagger dik on 2020/10/26 06:05
I believe if someone took the time to provide music to your audience you should at least give them their own composition free to play but this is not the case. You need to pay the subscription or do 30 things for the “smoola” needed to play your piece. This is truly disgraceful. I won’t even bring up the amount of ads and no offline capability.
Ok app but WAY too much money for subscription
by TheRiot81 on 2020/10/25 16:51
This app is a decent piano playing app with a good catalogue of songs to play. However, what they charge for a subscription (which you absolutely need if you want to play more than 1 song per day) is completely overpriced! Save your money and buy a real keyboard and play for real.
Doesn’t even open
by Leapeed2000 on 2020/10/25 00:40
Can’t even open the app. Just loads indefinitely
Problem with “composer”

I had been working on “composing” a song on this app for days. It’s now been finished for months. I can’t publish it. It always says “song failed to publish. Please check your internet connection and try again.” However, my connection is perfectly fine. At this point, I am 100% sure that there are absolutely no problems with my WiFi connectivity. I also checked it by using a different device. I tried publishing an unfinished song and it worked. So obviously my WiFi isn’t the problem since there was no problem publishing a song using a different device. I have checked on this problem after every update but it still persists. I’m quite disappointed that I am unable to publish a song that I worked on for several hours and days.
Trash

This used to be a good game, it really was. Until the developers decided money was more important. Everyone is going to delete your game. Fix this trash.
Great! Composer could use a bit of work though
by Melana :) on 2020/10/21 16:44
Honestly I’ve seen a lot of reviews saying that this app has a bunch of problems, but I disagree. Sure, it has a tiny glitch every week or so, but that’s no reason to uninstall it and say that it glitches all the time. I have apps that actually DO glitch multiple times a day, and this is not one of them. The only thing that SLIGHTLY annoys me is that so power shuts down randomly. But it saves your progress, and everything is fine after that, so it doesn’t really bother me that much. The real reason I’m writing this review is because of one TINY little detail of something think they could improve. I am a composer, not actually, but I compose on this app. I am a musician, and it annoys me when they don’t give you the option to do things that are a little more complex in composer. Like changing time signatures in the middle, giving the ‘piece’ dynamics, or putting in a triplet. I have found ways around the triplet thing, but it’s very difficult. I also wish that they would put some lower notes in, as the notes go very high but not very low. I also feel like more complex time signatures should be a thing as well. The other thing is it’s hard to get smoola, and the songs cost a lot of it. I feel like that issue is self-explanatory, but I wish they would do something about that. Now that my suggestions are out of the way, I can say that this app is great. It’s so different from the other piano apps that I’ve tried downloading (which I uninstalled after a week because I didn’t like them), and I love it’s uniqueness. Playing the songs are very fun, and doing it with the artist singing is even better and creative. I would recommend this app for anyone, regardless of it’s tiny issues.
stuck with the same few songs
by YeriTheUnicorn on 2020/10/21 13:19
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. Plus now it’s telling me it can’t download my songs, so now I can’t even play my OWN songs. This app has multiple problems and it’s being ignored, so I’ve given up on it
Can y’all please fix this
by FamousOrangeCat :3 on 2020/10/18 18:58
I can’t get free smula by watching ads anymore.
songs won’t open
by Rojin-san on 2020/10/17 22:53
hi so most of the songs I had in “my songs” won’t open. it gives this error that they can’t be downloaded... what’s this about? I love some of my songs and I would like to play them... I am just hoping that this would be fixed with the next update which doesn’t seem to come! been waiting for the update for a long time... I’d appreciate it if you could fix this problem. I WANT MY SONGS BACK.
One of the greatest games I've ever played!
by brookieswaysway on 2020/10/15 23:34
Now, I have an iPhone 4s (it's a hand me down) and I can't download many good games, but when I DO find a game compatible with my IPhone, it doesn't open. But Magic Piano actually works and it has NO lag! It is one of the GREATEST games I have ever played! Thanks for making this smule!!!
My creations aren’t fast enough and I can’t report to songs.
by joeydiiorio on 2020/10/14 22:30
I need more than 220 BPM on my composed songs. And I want to report songs. AND I want more songs because one I think maybe it would be my 9th if I made it and it said I didn’t have Wi-Fi connection when I did so I couldn’t make it. I also think you should make easy one note at a time, medium either 2 or 3 notes at a time, and hard stay how it is (how it’s composed). I figured out the changing easy part in the song called “Turkish March: Impossible.
App hardly works!!
by ChicaBaka on 2020/10/13 23:07
I literally cannot play any of the songs i already got with coins and the watching videos for coins option doesn’t give you coins, no songs will load without me getting a message telling me to check my connection, only a few selected songs work which is boring, please fix this app, this is one of my favorite apps for many years, this app even got me through not having electricity and depending on a generator after getting hit by hurricanes pretty bad and brings back a lot of memories with family and it’s a shame nothing is being done to fix these issues!!
For the love of gawd!!!! ADS ADS and more ADS
by Menace10101 on 2020/10/11 09:14
Play a ditty for 20 secs then be forced to watch three GD ads! It is total garbage.
No sound
by Ccgirard on 2020/10/10 21:43
I can hear the ads, but sound stopped working yesterday on the songs and still not working today. No fun if you can’t hear what you’re playing
Smoola problems
by foreshadow011 on 2020/10/10 14:39
I’ve loved this game for years but recently I’ve been having problems. It started out with not getting smoola from the ads which was very annoying. Now there’s another problem. When I click on an ad it says no offerings today or something like that. At first I thought it was just my internet, but it’s everywhere I go! Now don’t get me wrong this is a very fun game. I’ve had it for almost three years! You just have to fix these problems
FIX THIS
by Skydivejenna on 2020/10/08 19:12
So I have been a long time player( like to level 60) and my smoola stopped working. I level up, and it doesn’t give me smoola. It didn’t bother me that I had to watch adds to earn smoola but now the adds don’t work either. This game was the only thing I played up until now. I have like 100 songs on my account but now it won’t let me download the either. Please fix this so I can continue playing. This game was so fun🙁

Magic Piano
by Del52mas on 2020/10/06 07:34
I do love this app although sometimes when you're offered a free song it will give you one that you've already played. Also under free songs there's rarely one to try. There’s a message saying a new version of this app is coming. This was months ago. Still no upgrade or another? I finished level 101

Money grab
by ElG617 on 2020/10/02 19:20
Don’t bother watching ads no smula is awarded. They basically just want you to subscribe. Would be better if I could at least permanently buy the songs.
Really
by Margrk0521 on 2020/10/02 12:09
Don’t much appreicate signing up for a FREE trial and then being charged basically $11 for only 7 days of use like what the hell is that about?! Have properly asked for a refund
its fun but not...
by bubblez110123 on 2020/10/01 00:41
ive had the game for about 7 or 8 years and have had a lot of fun with it. but its just kinda lost its spark. i mean ads are ducked up you HAVE to dupe a song if u want it and it hasn't been updated in i think 4 or 5 years. Now do note the last time i wrote a review they fixed ( for about 2 months anyways) one of the major problems i rambled about in that review. buuuuut here i am... again 1) you can’t get any in game currency unless you buy it. end of story. you can waste your time watching ads but it will give you nothing this means the only my way to get a song and stay interested is to dupe it. which is technically stealing 2) all songs are duped. on my pricing i’ve got almost 130 songs. i only made about 4 of them. but you have to do this to be able to use the app. ( for those who don’t know his to avoid ads just look up free song magic piano on yt) overall id say that ads need to not be the main way to get in game currency. there is a daily competition where you can get double points for about 24 hours. your score should give you points. whenever you play a song could give you points. they just need to revamp it or its gonna die. i know technically it already is but i see a few pol here like me who dont want to get rid of it but at some point or another will when problems keep arising. smule if you are reading this stop focusing on sing and pay a little attention to us please
Good game but I have a problem
by Skittle_girl657 on 2020/09/29 13:49
This is a really good game but unfortunately I had to get all new songs because I couldn’t log into my old account but it’s not letting me watch videos for smoola so I don’t know what to do can you help me
A review i guess
by kmcoop02 on 2020/09/29 04:40
The app is good and all but without premium there is a ad before and after every song so I can’t give it a higher rating than just a stupid mobile game (because it is).
This is stupid
by bro why?😭😭😭😭😭 on 2020/09/26 22:28
I made a smule account like 2 years ago and was non stop grinding, and I try logging back in and it doesn’t say log in to smule account This is stupid, please help me.
Used to be fun

Easy mode used to be super fun you only needed to use one finger now you need two and that’s too difficult for me which is why I never did anything but easy mode
Changes You Can Add
by Judy McSmartiePants on 2020/09/25 20:15
Overall, I think this game is calm and relaxing. I just wish you could get coins more easily. For example, every time you level up, you usually get 1-5 coins. The songs usually cost around 25-50. So you have to level up A LOT to get some short songs, which to me is very unfair. Another thing I wish you would change are the ads. Every time you finish a song (which is usually 2-3 minutes long) you get an ad. Sometimes, before you even start the song. This gets pretty annoying the more you play. Even after all that, I still would recommend the game to music lovers! It contains almost every song I know, ranging from K-Pop (im an ARMY :D) to just mozart! I highly suggest you download this. ( This is only a review, please don’t take it to heart :) )
Can’t sign in with Facebook
by SingSmile on 2020/09/25 04:10
I’ve enjoyed this app in the past, so I downloaded it again despite the fallen reviews. I wanted to see if my progress and inventory of songs were preserved by signing in with Facebook. Alas! I’m met instead with an “error” or an “oops!,” depending on whether I sign in with the Facebook app or a browser (the latter of which required me to delete the Facebook app first, by the way). Please fix this app so we can enjoy it again!
WiFi problems
by loving pokemon and rise up :) on 2020/09/25 00:17
So, I decided to play a tad bit of faded or demons. When it finished the add, I hit easy and it said connection failed. I restarted my iPad, did it again. Refreshed the app. Did it again. Took every single thing open and closed it all. Did it again, please take the problem away. My iPad is in perfect WiFi rooms and it still does not work, the living room is the one with the best. Wen’t in there, didn’t work. FIX THE APP! SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH ITS FINDING WIFI CONNECTIONS! ALL APPS ARE WORKING FINE! AND THIS GAME IS NOT! a please fix this solution, I wish to play again after a month of not playing this game properly when it kept kicking me out when I hit play on it, just solve this WiFi problem.
Best game
by ballora1025 on 2020/09/24 17:17
I usually play roblox and this the only thing i don’t like is adds
Adds
by Freckle Face 1313 on 2020/09/24 16:41
Good morning, I love this app and play it a lot but there is one specific add that has a high pitched girl screaming because of a fire. When I play the piano on this I turn my volume all the way up. when I press next when I get my star rating it continues to hurt me ear. Thank you, from,Reviewer
Used to be better
by GhostAnimoji on 2020/09/24 03:18
The Magic Piano used to be the game of all games. It was a nice challenge between friends and family, and it was fun. Now however, they have switched to a money making approach rather than keeping the app engaging. After each song you finish, you get an ad. After every action you take, you get an ad. You don’t earn many smoola and you level up very veeery slowly. Furthermore, the only way to get any free smoola doesn’t even work! How come does Smule thrown so many ads in my face and when I want to watch an ad for free smoola, it always says there are no ads currently available? Also, the “surveys and miscellaneous” smoola earning section does not work. I have tried many times and haven’t gotten any smoola. Finally, a lot of the songs I got a long time ago require me to watch an ad before playing them, and then another ad after. And some songs I bought don’t even work anymore with the error that they can’t download. All in all, it’s an amazing app. I love it and I have been using it for a looong time but it has changed for the worse.
Erm..
by Ya mommaz mama on 2020/09/24 00:01
I’m sure ya can do better. I kept on downloading this app over and over because it always kicked me out. Every time I download this the next day I have to wait like a long time to play. I went to go make a sandwich and then I found out I loaded in but my iPad went off. So as soon as I got back on it glitch and kicked me out. I’m pretty sure ya can fix that. On the other hand good app!
Good but there is a problem with smoola
by Fernanda knowing on 2020/09/23 19:59
One I did not like how they put smoola almost on every song even gravity falls theme! Two it’s not a bad app dust not the best it crashes my games if I leave it open.
Barely playable anymore
by Mynicknameforthisreview on 2020/09/22 22:30
I used to LOVE this game when I was a kid and had so many fond memories of it. When I redownloaded it on my phone a year or two ago I had to start over, but I thought it would be fine. For a game that I used to love so much, I rarely ever play it, because it’s just not what it used to be. There are WAY too many ads and everytime I try to watch an ad to get more smoola it just says there’s no ads available. You should be able to watch ads and then buy a song, it makes no sense that I can’t do that. There’s a way to have ads in your app and make money, Smule, while still making sure the game is fun for people. Point is, it’s barely even playable anymore. It seems like Smule doesn’t even care about the players, just about making money, so I think they deserve 1 star. I might delete it as I never play it anymore, but I’m just really mad and disappointed in what it has become. I hope Smule changes things, but I’m pretty sure they don’t care about what their players think.
glitches every time i try to watch a vid!!
by Emma Mayhugh on 2020/09/21 23:33
so im gonna start by saying i love this game it’s so addicting once u start playing u can’t stop!! but there’s one thing that’s annoying me... every time i try to watch an add for coins it keeps telling me there’s “no more offers for today” and doesn’t let me watch an add (ᗒᗣᗕ)՞ its been happening for a couple of days the first time i tried it i thought ok theres no more ill just have to try tmw but when i tried the next day it still said that 😭overall the game if fantastic and theres nothing else wrong with it! but please fix my game 😓🥶
Interface doesn’t work on medium and hard
by dj12247 on 2020/09/19 22:04
I used to love this app and recently re-downloaded it. However, any time I try to play a song on medium or hard, the app doesn’t recognize three or four-finger taps. This makes it impossible to play at higher levels and takes away all the fun. I hope this issue is fixed soon.
The ads
by MattIvy07 on 2020/09/17 17:58
Pretty good but my god the ads their before and after every song AND ITS THE SAME EXACT ONE
Great overall
by CherryBlossom9184 on 2020/09/15 17:55
For the years I’ve had it, it’s been great. More so lately I’ve gotten good at using the composer for writing my own songs, (be it most of them are unfinished 😅) but recently it wasn’t working where it won’t let my into composer at all, but I’m not sure if it’s just my tablet or if there’s a bug issue. Anyway, besides that star costing issue, full marks from me.
It’s terribly disappointing !
by Mahsajessybob on 2020/09/15 17:20
It doesn’t even play free songs! It says the content will be shown after ads but it doesn’t even work then! Aweful!
ad problem
by huhuyuuiurfiuurh on 2020/09/14 18:07
when o try to get free smoola is says wait a little bit and when i do when i try again it will play a video and crash and you don’t get smoola and sometimes it will just crash either way please fix this
Free smoola ads not working
by jnuehuxebxjnxje on 2020/09/14 18:03

Nowadays Terrible
by EP_06 on 2020/09/12 17:48
The app used to be amazing. I loved playing the songs everyday when I was younger. Nowadays it is infested with ads and crappy songs made by the users.
Ads
by harry potter grifffindor on 2020/09/11 16:49
I really like playing this game it's really enjoyable other than the ads. If I want to play a song it'll give me an ad but I'll get kicked out of the game and this happens every time I try to watch ads for smoola or just to play a free song so it's hard to even play new songs or get smoola.
Issues
by TheSingingGuy on 2020/09/08 13:41
I have had this app for many years, love it...but lately every song I click on to play won’t download. Ridiculous.
Ads, VIP, smoola
by Meee todai on 2020/09/08 10:34
I used to love this app but I don’t like it at all anymore because there’s VERY few free songs and every other song you either have to spend like an hour watching ads to pay for it through Smoola, or you have to pay. Lame.
Im impressed
by we are loving! on 2020/09/07 18:44
Hey there! Just wanted to write something. So really I’m amazed with everything in this app, but what I mostly like about this app is that you can add songs through the composer which is what I’m literally doing all day, so yeah and I love being able to play other people’s songs that they put in! This app makes me feel like I can actually play the piano and have fun while I play! Ok thanks for reading this bye.
Umm
by whatislife145 on 2020/09/03 23:32
You can hardly play any songs without ‘smoola’, which are hard to get. On top of that, the game is always telling me to ‘play faster’ while playing slow songs. Please please change that!
Good but..
by Meowkitty52106 on 2020/09/02 19:58
I have loved this app for years!!! But I am no longer earning coins when I should! This app owes me at least 18 coins and I haven't gotten them. Therefore I can't get more songs. Then, today, it deleted all my progress star wise. I had three stars on every level on all the songs I had and now I have zero. PLEASE FIX!!!
soooo many ads
by duwkurfiudhhrhtu on 2020/08/27 13:55
i’ve played this on and off for years, but now i don’t even have the motivation to play for more than ten minutes. you can’t breathe without an ad. wanna play a song? ad. finished playing a song? ad. it’s constant, and it’s annoying. the in-game currency is wayyy too hard to get. vip is way too expensive for a decent, repetitive game. this app used to be fun, but now it’s a blatant cash grab.
I can’t play my songs?
by colinzzzz on 2020/08/26 22:03
Smule is a great way to play the piano without lugging one into your home. I am very happy with this app, but sometimes it gets on my nerves. For example the ads are terrible. They pop up every time I finish playing a song. Some ads are inappropriate. I really hate it when they say “You can no longer play this song”, and then try to get me to pay for a subscription. It is really not necessary. And... the VIP section. Almost half of the songs are in that category. Most of my favorites, too.
Pretty good
by Karalou23 on 2020/08/24 17:28
It’s pretty good over all. Most of the songs are good. But I watched three videos for free token things and it didn’t give me anything. Fix it?
Won’t let me into the composter.
by Crowncity on 2020/08/24 12:12
Hi so the game won’t let me in the composter. I don’t know if it’s a bug but I know that it won’t let me in please fix it ok by
Too expensive
by rettyiiu on 2020/08/22 21:36
Why would you charge 20 dollars a month but 50 dollars for the year? Than you have 9.99 a week? Way too expensive for how buggy it is as well as how a lot of these songs aren’t legit they are just created by other players.

please fix the glitch
by SkyRaver13 on 2020/08/19 19:34
I've been playing this app for several years and every so often it gets a glitch. I still like it because it's easy to play and hear the melodies. I have VIP subscription to skip ads and play any song. However... please fix the current glitch! Several of my favorite songs are not playing! It says to check my internet connection! And then randomly I can play other songs. Thanks.
Smoola ad problem
by Joebshdhdhdhdhsh on 2020/08/17 12:58
I watched the ad and then I got no smoola this is annoying because of course every song cost money I’m deleting the app very annoying
Ads, Smoola, and VIP blocks make it very hard to enjoy
by Miles Wolfers on 2020/08/17 05:49
WAY too many ads. Want to play a free song? Ad. Finish playing a song and want to play next difficulty? Ad. Want to do literally anything? AD. STOP WITH ALL THE ADS. Also Smoola (in-game currency) are almost impossible to get! You might get one when you level up which takes forever to do, and half the time when you try to watch an ad to get some for free it crashes the app and/or you don't get anything out of it other than a cruddy ad for an app no one with an iq over 0 is interested in. About 70-80% of the songs are unavailable to play without paying for VIPmembership, which just wouldn't be worth it for an already low-quality game. It's supposed to be a simple relaxing game, but all the issues make it more frustrating than it's worth. Lots of problems and each update only says "bug fixes" and makes no discernible changes. I played this as a kid and don't remember this many ads. I actually enjoyed it then but not so much now.
Too many ads
by Bear_Clau on 2020/08/17 02:57
The app was better when you didn’t have to watch an ad every time you wanted to play a free song. There’s also pop up ads after most of the songs. I had this years ago and loved it, now it’s awkward to use having to stop every 15 seconds for an ad that’s longer than the songs.
Inappropriate ads
by Pls fix it. on 2020/08/16 23:16

ehh-
by Ingrid 💕💕 on 2020/08/14 06:03
it’s a very good app but wayyyy too many ads, there’s some games that give you a lot of ads but they atleast give you a 1-2 minute break from them but with this app whichever song you choose will give you an ad and it’s so annoying! Also the fact that the ads are all the same?! What?!! atleast give me different games I’ll be interested in!
Free Songs aren’t even free
by Sibow on 2020/08/13 22:46
The free songs playing hard and then after the ad they tell you they’re unavailable to use if you wanna play them again, there’s another ad. Nothing “free” about it
Used to be nice
by TNSCrew on 2020/08/12 14:54
It’s a fun little app, but in the past few months I’ve been unable to get the in game money by watching ads, which makes the app completely useless since you get 1 smoola every level, and songs cost between 25-75 smoola. I’ve tried to get in contact with customer support, but I don’t think they care and are trying to make people spend actual money rather than watch ads. Pretty crappy.
Smoola and ad problems
by gamerwskills on 2020/08/10 17:54
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. Those problems seem to bug me but overall this app is pretty 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.
its fun but not...
by bubblez110123 on 2020/10/01 00:41
ive had the game for about 7 or 8 years and have had a lot of fun with it. but its just kinda lost its spark. i mean ads are ducked up you HAVE to dupe a song if u want it and it hasn't been updated in i think 4 or 5 years. Now do note the last time i wrote a review they fixed ( for about 2 months anyways) one of the major problems i rambled about in that review. buuuuut here i am... again 1) you can’t get any in game currency unless you buy it. end of story. you can waste your time watching ads but it will give you nothing this means the only my way to get a song and stay interested is to dupe it. which is technically stealing 2) all songs are duped. on my pricing i’ve got almost 130 songs. i only made about 4 of them. but you have to do this to be able to use the app. ( for those who don’t know his to avoid ads just look up free song magic piano on yt) overall id say that ads need to not be the main way to get in game currency. there is a daily competition where you can get double points for about 24 hours. your score should give you points. whenever you play a song could give you points. they just need to revamp it or its gonna die. i know technically it already is but i see a few pol here like me who dont want to get rid of it but at some point or another will when problems keep arising. smule if you are reading this stop focusing on sing and pay a little attention to us please
Loveable, life-long game! HERES SOME RECOMMENDATIONS
by fattestbitchontheblock on 2020/11/05 21:41
I’ve played this game since I was 11 years old and i’m almost 18 now. Let me just say, this app has improved insanely since the beginning and I’m super proud of the developers for opening the Composer ability. This has opened so many possibilities when it comes to music, I myself have purchased the pass to have full access to the library. It is a little pricey at $7.99 a week, but if your very deep into it then it shouldn’t be too much of a deal. I feel that long term users should get a discount if that was possible. Anyways, if the developers are still checking reviews and trying to improve their app, I feel like a perfect idea for improvement would be the ability to ORGANIZE your songs. Maybe you have a lot of classical songs and you would like them to be in a group. This is a KEY feature that would make navigating the app much more useful. Secondly, I would also recommend a feature that allows you to delete songs you didn’t enjoy playing, off of your songbook. Everyone has played a song they didn’t quite enjoy, but it stays on your songbook as long as you’ve played it. These two features would make the $7.99 a week pass much more worth it in my opinion. That’s all. Thank you guys!
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Really?
by g-c-hoo on 2020/06/20 18:13
This used to be a great app. But now all sorts of problems have surfaced. The first one is a terrible glitch that ruins the whole game. I am currently trying to earn achievements to earn smoola. The one I’m doing right now is play ten songs perfectly. I keep trying to play songs, but as I am tapping the screen, say on the right side, it will say I’m also tapping on the left and will say that I’m tapping with too many fingers! This makes it impossible to complete the achievement. The second one is how hard it is to earn smoola. To earn them you either have to level up, or earn an achievement. It is extremely hard to level up and as I said before that glitch makes it very hard to earn achievements. The reason it is hard to level up is that it barely gives you any xp after you finish a song. You need about 10,000 xp to level up where I’m at. But when you finish a song that lasts longer than three minutes it only gives you 300 xp.
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!

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.
Used to be better
by GhostAnimoji on 2020/09/24 03:18
The Magic Piano used to be the game of all games. It was a nice challenge between friends and family, and it was fun. Now however, they have switched to a money making approach rather than keeping the app engaging. After each song you finish, you get an ad. After every action you take, you get an ad. You don’t earn many smoola and you level up very veeery slowly. Furthermore, the only way to get any free smoola doesn’t even work! How come does Smule thrown so many ads in my face and when I want to watch an ad for free smoola, it always says there are no ads currently available? Also, the “surveys and miscellaneous” smoola earning section does not work. I have tried many times and haven’t gotten any smoola. Finally, a lot of the songs I got a long time ago require me to watch an ad before playing them, and then another ad after. And some songs I bought don’t even work anymore with the error that they can’t download. All in all, it’s an amazing app. I love it and I have been using it for a looong time but it has changed for the worse.
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.
This is my favorite game in the whole world
by Wifey290 on 2018/01/13 08:16

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 :(
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 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.😒🙏🏻
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.
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 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.
