Things for consideration
by Mmqqrr on 2020/10/24 12:16
I love Smule!! I have it for more than 5 years ago and it is my stress reliever. I am a aVIP SINce the beginning . I don’t t know what happened with the new version that I can’t no longer choose the filter that I want and also different tunes or background ( IDK THE REAL NAME) when I sing. Also, I used to listen the music I recorded at bedtime because I can hear one song after another , but now it is one by one. I need to change to the other song because it keeps playing the same one over and over again. I really would like to be as before. I would love that you take that in consideration for the next update! Thank you🦋
Disappointing update
by datboy6 on 2020/10/24 08:36
After using this app for 3 years, this update made me officially delete it. The fact that we cant even use our own filters for creativity anymore is sad. Hope they change this back to how it used to be bc this is terrible
PAY TO PLAY
by jshxjababa on 2020/10/24 07:49
This app basically forces you to be VIP to sing any of the songs. Might as well just make it a paid app rather than free to download.
Best game EVERRRRRRRR!!!!!!
by Alexi12345 on 2020/10/24 05:55
OK so first I download this app I thought it would be boring actually it was more fun Dan playing among us and that’s my favorite game and is going to change I mean who doesn’t like to sing you better download this game or else I’ll tell your mama i’m just joking I know it sounds boring but it’s not trust me it’s not like I just can’t leave it I am a VIP and a download it like 8 hours ago Who can leave this game i’m terrible at singing but this app made me a pro download now if you want to be pro in a couple hours
New version is terrible.
by @ConcentrateJake on 2020/10/24 04:17
It automatically enables the original persons filter not allowing you to adjust it. It is impossible for me to keep tempo with the insane reverb settings. I’m not using this app until they revert back to the original.
You guys are the worst
by Noviembre24Xo on 2020/10/24 04:00
You guys better fix this soon, what a trash update, many people would leave the app soon....
Your update
by mihia voinea on 2020/10/24 03:27
Your update on the new sounds are kind of crazy because some people Don’t like that you can’t choose your own sound when they don’t have vip and it’s Annoying
Like not paying that much it’s not worth it
by kousna on 2020/10/24 03:12
It make you have to pay for everything me and my sister tried to sing together but we had to pay
Please bring back the ability to use different FX on a single recording!!
by Qwertyinurface on 2020/10/24 02:39
A large community of smule users used this part of smule and it was very important for our recordings!!! Please consider 💔
Please fix the update
by luke_2038 on 2020/10/24 01:54
This app is supposed to be fun but it’s not, VIP is expensive, you have to sing with the auto tune the OTHER person picks, and we can only do duets. Please fix this
Bad Update - Put it Back!
by LTS79 on 2020/10/23 23:59
This latest update has absolutely ruined the experience on Smule. Shame on you Smule! I won’t be renewing my subscription is this is the new direction.
I’m so disappointed !
by ojerabs on 2020/10/23 22:41
What you guys did with this new version? Do something about this soon!!!!! We need the old one ! Simple but effective ! We don’t want to play with filters! come’on!
Opt out
by Dave5963 on 2020/10/23 16:56
When I saw this app on the App Store, it said free. After I clicked on the link and download it it said it was $10 a week, $40 a month. I don’t know where the free comes in but I’d love to opt up out of this. I really can’t spend $40 a month or something I’m not going to use but maybe once. Please send me a response on how to opt out at PQCEJBA@ YAHOO.COM THANK YOU IN ADVANCE. DAVID SMITH
It doesn’t let me follow people
by Loco74364 on 2020/10/23 14:49
It doesn’t even let me follow people I wait 2 days and it still says I follow to fast and sometimes when I try to make a video it just shows black and you can’t even hear the song.
Update
by Mystic Prower on 2020/10/23 11:20
I love this app. I would give it five stars but I don’t like the new update. I liked it better when we got to choose our own voice filters. A lot of people don’t like this new weird update. Could you possibly change it back and n the next update?
Don’t want the new update...It’s waste..
by Sreeraj.Pillai on 2020/10/23 04:31
The new update is horrible. Please bring us back the old effects. The new effects are utter garbage. Please listen us and give back the old nice settings...
No
by somebodyinneedofhelp on 2020/10/23 01:30
So sorry but no... I have a YouTube channel and I’m trying to endorse my singing because my fans request these things with me the only problem is I’m not getting compensation from YouTube meaning that buying a subscription for $99 a year is out of the question that is insane I tried but this is crazy for the apps amount of glitches, bugs, and inconveniences you’re sure overpricing it I know it doesn’t matter but you can forgot my download never getting this app again
Recent Update = Horrible
by Sully Sobie on 2020/10/23 00:43
I use to love singing on this App but the recent update totally takes away all the creativity from singers. You have no choice in what filter you use when joining and that is so disappointing. You guys missed the mark on this update 😞
the new update is extremely disappointing.
by Makayla_W on 2020/10/23 00:35
i have been on this app for 6 years and i’m honestly disappointed with how the newest update changed everything about the app that made it good and user friendly.
Stop With The Trash Updates
by Kimmiko2997 on 2020/10/22 22:49
I’ve Been Using This App For As Long As I Can Remember. AbLot Had Improved But To Take The FX Away????? Absolutely Terrible Move Please Go Back This Is HORRIBLE.I’d Give 5 Stars But I’m Extremely Disappointed With What You Call An Update This Time Around.
the update is terrible
by the update is so bad i hate it on 2020/10/22 22:45
pls change it back to before all these updates you're making
Antes era perfecta para cantar y hoy con la ultima actualización es una porquería
by Vela1976 on 2020/10/22 20:29
Quitaron todo lo que a la gente la gustaba y pusieron un montón de basura triste pero si no la ponen como estaba antes la mayoría se alejara de esta aplicación
The Piano
by 😒😞😞😞😡😡😡🤨 on 2020/10/22 18:56
I love the sing in this app and I want to sing more but there is A problem every time when it’s my turn to sing there is extra piano that is off key and I can barely hear myself I don’t know what happened to it but I’m not gonna give up on this app soPlease for the people that wants to sing
I used to love smule
by Cool app really works on 2020/10/22 18:53
The new update has completely ruined the app for me. I like being able to choose my own effects when joining a duet. I really dislike that we have to use the ones the other person uses. Please put it back so I can continue using the app.
new update is wack
by mochiserena on 2020/10/22 16:58
the FX was the best part. and then you took it away. 🥱🥱 uninstalling, remind me when they bring the fx back
This new update is awful
by Mrcubanbear on 2020/10/22 15:06
Please fix this update. Not only can you not change the type of sound you want to use during the recording but it’s also more frustrating to change aspects of it. I really don’t wanna cancel my membership but I don’t think I can work well with this update.
.
by L⃟i⃟ on 2020/10/22 14:34
Well the problem is, I haven’t used this app in months and it gets undownloaded and I forgot my pass to my account so if you find my account and know it’s pass please deeply tell me it, I love smule and it’s a really good singing app, I really suggest to play this, because I don’t know if my whole account is saved and I forgot my username so if you find that too tell me my pass and username please! I really like this app and I forgot it and I deeply wanted to play on it, if you do help me, I deeply appreciate that! Thank you!
All the vocal filters....
by WhyISing on 2020/10/22 12:57
With this last update we’ve received overwhelming vocal filters. I loved the simplicity of the app prior to this update now I’m so confused on what to use. It’s even harder now to match up with your duet partner as it’s almost impossible to know what they used. Was hoping they would make it easier to know what filter was used so you both could be on the same level. It’s just too much. Also once you use the filter and sing you used to be able to edit it as you played the song back. Now you do not have that option and the filter sounds completely different when you hear it back. Super dumb.
This app is supposed to be fun... but it’s not...
by MariMineCraft333 on 2020/10/22 09:21
I just wanna sing a song by myself, but I have to get VIP first? That’s just not fair. Plus you only give people one free song and if they don’t choose one they’re stuck not having one until they get VIP to unlock everything. This app is supposed to be fun... It’s not fun if you’re just wasting your money on a subscription.
No more live switch effects 👿
by Havepoints on 2020/10/22 07:49
They took away the BEST part of this app: the LIVE editing and ability to switch between effects. Now you have to start the whole song over and delete it if you don’t like one effect. Unsubbed.
Great app but it needs a way to report scams
by Dcrensh on 2020/10/22 05:23
I’ve been with Smule for 7 years it’s a great app but recently I was contacted by someone who was posing as the prince of Dubai. He definitely tried to get money from me. Smule does not have a way to report this, please take this profile off of your site the user name is “majestray”. He is one of the Nigerian scammers. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been approached, I did block his profile.
Update
by jsalee on 2020/10/22 04:35
The new update is so frustrating. It was so much better when you could change the effects when you were singing but now its stuck on polish when you duet people and it sounds terrible. Go back to the old version.
:(
by Luke.exe on 2020/10/22 04:23
I just want to sing by myself without paying
Trash update
by Korqui P. on 2020/10/22 03:47
At this point it seems like you guys want ppl to leave this app. This new update is terrible. It ruined the apps experience. Maybe listen to what your users want in the app. Why is that such a hard concept? A bunch of ppl started to move over to voisey anyway. So sad.
Update !! Nooooo
by Sc0rpi0555 on 2020/10/22 02:55
Please bring back the old effects these are confusing !
New update is terrible
by marxanderz on 2020/10/22 02:05
The new Styles update has made the app completely unenjoyable for me. I have VIP, but I’m not getting what I initially paid for. I suppose I’ll have to wait out the subscription, but I will not be extending my service if this is how it will be.
The death of Smule
by Noble 29 on 2020/10/22 02:00
I have no idea what the devs were thinking when they developed and rolled out this latest update that TOOK FEATURES AWAY, but boy what a stupid mistake. The app was already steadily declining with activity, and I fear they’ve put the nail in their own coffin. My #1 stress relief app has been ruined and I’m so disappointed.
If you want to sing anything you have to pay
by Yasfit on 2020/10/22 01:31
You can’t sing anything by yourself
Bring back old smule.
by TRINITYTRINITYTRINITY on 2020/10/21 23:48
New update is awful, and you have to pay to hear all of your older songs.
ABOUT FACE!!
by MusicNobody420 on 2020/10/21 21:18
Y’all butchered this app with the new update. I thought I found my happy place back in June when i discovered this app but now I’m so disappointed I don’t know what to do I feel lost l. Just go back to original until you figure this out no more sing style ppppplllllllleeeeeease
Update
by muhfukk on 2020/10/21 20:34
I have used this app for a lot of years now, idk who got their hands on this new update & screwed it all up. But yikes. I don’t like how you can’t change your vocals through the song anymore
PUT IT BACK.
by Opalescent-Tides on 2020/10/21 17:29
This new update is COMPLETE garbage! You took away everyone's ability to choose a sound fx that's comfortable for them and are just now matching the sound settings to whoever began the song, even if you're a VIP and for what? So you could throw in some more flashy video fx? The old audio settings were arguably the one good stable thing about the app and they got changed for no good reason! I've used Smule for over a year now AND vip and I thought the app was pretty ok for the most part but now this makes me feel like it's no longer worth the money I'm paying for it.
Major Privacy invasion
by Krystalsmmns on 2020/10/21 17:24
I will never use this app again. Without any warning or permission, Smule has decided it’s ok for anybody to view and play with anybody’s raw/unedited content. Doesn’t give you an option to opt out or remove your content from another app that I never gave them permission to add me to. I would AVOID at all cost
Very fun.
by softball_player💓 on 2020/10/21 16:24
This is a very fun singing game. but i wish it had a place where you could just save private. now i haven’t been on it very long. and there maybe one. There is another thing too. I get it if you want people to buy the VIP access, but when you want to sing solo. that’s not fun if you have to pay a membership. Welp that all.
Version
by sheebaroohu on 2020/10/21 15:49
This version is too much bad 😟😟😟😟 want old version 🙏
Deleting app after 4 years.
by PlexusMaxim on 2020/10/21 14:41
I loved this app. It was great. They recent update has taken the adjustability away and filters and sounds are canned and terrible. Clearly Smule has lost its way and no longer has a grasp on what users need and want from the product. It was fun while it lasted. If they don’t return the features we had grown to depend on this will be a fatal decision for this app. Signed, You
App no longer receives audio
by Solena2 on 2020/10/21 11:10
I’ve been using this for years, and while I have my complaints, it’s overall the best karaoke app I’ve found. However, for some reason, it no longer picks up audio? I sing at a perfectly reasonable volume, and other apps record it fine so it can’t be on my end, but whenever I try to record a song on this it ends up completely silent. This is a good app, but with this bug, it’s become completely unusable. If it still worked, I’d give it four stars, but...
this ain’t it
by fixthisstupidthing on 2020/10/21 10:18
what the hell did you guys do to the vocal effects?!? mine is stuck on super studio and i never use that one. why would you ruin your own app!?! all you’ve done is make your users angry. i’ve been on and off the app for 5+ years but this is the first time i’m considering leaving for good. the functionality of this app just keeps getting worse and worse. i don’t understand why you hate yourselves so much.
New update
by nightwinghood on 2020/10/21 07:36
This new update is really annoying, I can’t change the voice FX or make my audio louder and quieter, I liked the older versions of this app better.
Why...
by Potato Goddess 🥔🥔🥔 on 2020/10/21 06:39
So the game is good, I just wish it was like how it was before all these updates, you have to pay to actually singing in solo,Duet, and group. I only get to sing one song right now as of unlocking it some how. But you also have to pay to have it for a month or a year and only get one free week trials I don’t like it I get there trying to get money but doing it like this just takes the fun out of the game I use to have it a couple years ago and I loved it but now I don’t like it that much. So to the developers please change it, it would be a much more fun experience with the game. Thank you that’s all
Changed voice editing settings
by #1 Cheesecake on 2020/10/21 02:28
As of 12/28/2018, 5:00pm I’ve tried saving a video song several times. I’ve even deleted and re-recorded, something everyone loves doing(sarcastically) still won’t go through 😠
Stop taking away VIP user control!!
by mishmosh97 on 2020/10/21 02:18
Stay away from this app!!! I am off Smule for 6 or 7 days and I come back and I don’t even recognize it anymore. This is THE WORST change/update I have seen you guys make!!! Individuals used to have the choice of what sound effect (FX) they would like to record in & same goes for video. Now they have made it complicated and have forced whatever the OC has chosen upon the joiners. This isn’t what I’ve paid for. I never record myself in these god awful FX’s. I always record in no FX or just polished and then will tweak my settings myself to blend with the OC’s. This just looks and sounds tacky. This isn’t what I signed up for when I prepaid. Frankly I feel jipped having controls stripped away. You need to listen to your users. It’s fine to make changes, but give people the option on whether they want to allow this to take effect on their joins. Don’t force it upon us. Is anyone at Smule listening to me or is this falling on deaf ears? This was actually one nice thing I looked forward to doing during the pandemic and now you have ruined it. Anyone thinking of getting Smule, don’t!!!!
Nueva actualización 👎🏼
by Norahcruzin on 2020/10/21 01:37
Era mi app favorita hasta la reciente actualización. Ahora todo es más complicado, ya no se pueden hacer joins con diferentes efectos. No me gusta la idea de tener que combinar con otra app para “crear” efectos. Queremos la versión anterior ya o no pagaremos más VIP y nos iremos a otra app de Karaoke menos complicada. 😡👎🏼
Love this app BUT
by Ntynda on 2020/10/21 00:34
The new update is horrendous. I don’t know any of us who are happy with it. Please give up back our previous options. As a VIP member for over 5 years I’m putting my faith in the developers to listen to their users.
The update 😢
by Desire The Ray on 2020/10/21 00:09
I’ve been on this app for sooooo long and pay yearly for it and the newest update changed so many settings and I can’t adjust the fix on my singing as I’m singing any longer and that helped me sing the songs the way I enjoyed singing them. Now I have to wait until after I record the song then play with the fix. I hope it goes back to the other way, otherwise it may be time to cancel my subscription.
Update woes
by Jaldi Karo on 2020/10/20 23:26
The latest update doesn’t allow singers who join a collaboration to select their effect. The invite initiator gets to pick the effects. Period. Maybe smule should change it back to the original version.
Are you purposely trying to kill your app?
by blepstarshipnemal on 2020/10/20 23:04
Because with the mass exodus of the majority paying user base, I don’t see this being relevant for much longer. Shooting yourselves in the foot with this update, really. I was considering getting yearly VIP up until recently, so that’s a shame. Thanks for saving my $50 though, much obliged! I hope the rest of the people on here leave soon, too. At least until you come out of this ridiculous experimental phase and give us back the app we love. 😒
Pls 🙏
by glennie66 on 2020/10/20 22:30
Bring the old smule 😢 thank u 🙏
Worst Update ever
by Angelica..MK on 2020/10/20 22:10
Please how are you kind of obligating certain looks to certain style of voice!? Please Separate the voice editing tools from the audio editing tools!! Everyone has different tastes is not fair
I PAID FOR A YEAR AND CANNOT ACCESS IT
by LilyUnknown on 2020/10/20 22:06
I PAID FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR AND WAS CHARGED FOR A YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION PLUS TWO MORE MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTIONS. I EMAILED AND STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED A REPLY. I HAVE PAID MY MONEY AND I CANNOT ACCESS MY VIP ACCOUNT. I KEEP GETTING PROMPTED TO PAY! I WANT MY YEARLY ACCESS TO MY ACCOUNT. IT IS NOT RIGHT TO TAKE SOMEONE’S MONEY AND NOT EVEN ANSWER THEIR EMAILS.
New update
by jetsoverboston on 2020/10/20 20:56
This new update is terrible! So confusing and the audio sounds terrible with all this reverb and complicated settings. Please change it back!
Smule doesn’t do anything to help Anyone
by Sadjess12345 on 2020/10/20 20:49
Smule doesn’t do anything to help anyone. I you can send a complaint about your followers and following numbers going down ,up and down again. You can tell the truth about followers and the followed, and why you unfollowed the followerd. You even til the truth about why you block both the followers and followed, and till the truth about what happened before and after unfollowed the followed.You even till the truth about what happened before and after you blocked the followers and followed. The only one smule help is the one’s that til lies about you and what they know about you. Against you so your followers and followed numbers going down, up and down again. Why smule does nothing to help anyone. My name is jss _icefireair giving smule a one star ratings and a bad review. #FreeSongTuesday pop up there one minute and gone the next minute never back for scene change to sign the free song Tuesday songs. This smule app raises your hopes and then crush them.
Go back please
by msdhamis on 2020/10/20 20:12
Take us back to the old smule! This new update is awful!!!
For the love of god listen to us
by Ari :(: on 2020/10/20 19:58
The app is good and all but the prices for vip are so bad. Like 99$ for a singing app?!?! Yea cmon son lower them PLEASE. And the fact I can’t unlike smules when I accidentally like them, like I do with mine sometimes, is also extremely inconvenient. Another thing is the 100 song limit? I would appreciate if I could see my old smules without having to pay for it 😐.
New update
by hasima15 on 2020/10/20 19:55
The last update is Very worst
Don’t like the new update
by rakxoxo on 2020/10/20 19:52
I’ve always loved Smule but now in this recent update I hate it soo much!!! Change it back to its previous version please!!!!!!!
Effects Update
by iClintWilson on 2020/10/20 18:31
Please revert back to real-time effects. Seems like a huge step back and I’ve been using since 2013, spending quite a pretty penny on VIP throughout the years. Thanks.
new update
by ranyaloveswoojin on 2020/10/20 17:57
i cant even change the studio fx thing im stuck on polish ??? what??
What have you done?
by 2badithappened on 2020/10/20 16:59
What have you done?
App Changed Junk Now
by MissCrikaJ on 2020/10/20 16:10
Since Smule has decided to completely change what this app is - no longer about recording music, now just a TikTok wannabe - I’m changing my review. If you’re interested in actual music and recording/creating this is not the app for you.
UPDATES!!!
by Elenita S. on 2020/10/20 13:05
The new updates is horrible! Please bring back the old one. The videos and sounds quality is garbage!!! 😡😡😡 stop doing garbages updates!!!
New upgrade is a DOWNGRADE!
by TransparentGal on 2020/10/20 11:55
After 2 years of loving this app and it being my happy place, they shocked us all with an “upgrade”...I would have given a 5 star review, but they have added features and taken the best ones away! They added a feature that randomly changes your voice and tone during the song!! WE NO LONGER get to set our own sound or video settings as previously, and those of us that are VIP are paying!! Instead of going to sing here, I am looking at other options.. @Rose1Daisy go look, you can clearly see the difference in sound quality between those this week verses the pre-October 2020 update!! You will also notice a decrease in my activity on there.. Us faithful users are having the rug pulled out from under our feet! I haven’t heard 1 single positive remark about this update from any one of the thousands of people I know on there!! I won’t be paying for this or for any other in app purchases, including gifting VIP to others, unless they restore it to what it was before... the quality is nothing like it was!!! In fact, it lacks quality now! I signed a petition that grew quickly to 5k users that want it back how it was! And, it’s growing by the minute! No doubt there are other petitions going on too! If you want good reviews, Smule, delete what you did, please! I regret that I paid for a year subscription for what I had, only to log in days later and the best features were taken away!! I never would have paid for it!!! I was excited, as I just made the switch from an Android to an iPhone... Excited to experience the app to its fullest... didn’t have much of a chance and this happened !! HUGE LET-DOWN!! So many talented people, with many followers, are pulling the plug now!!
I don't understand why
by sidneyspade on 2020/10/20 10:10
The upgrade is just awful It took away what I love the most about this app... I was gonna pay again for another year but how I don't know anymore. Bring all filters back pls It took away the freedom to put any filters we want in a song.
The new interface is awful
by Joshlc2003 on 2020/10/20 08:48
The whole sound controls are incredibly inefficient and you have less control than before. It’s ridiculous. Everything now is Reverb this and Reverb that and there’s so much less control. They either BETTER lower the yearly subscription price or change it back because it’s a hassle when you’re trying to record and have no control over the sound until after you’re done. I don’t like it.
Can’t host
by petttttttterpippper on 2020/10/20 06:16
Since the update I can’t host a live. Keep getting disconnected to server.
KILLED the app with the new Update
by Unhappy melody on 2020/10/20 05:11
why would they make a drastic change to app?. instead of making it better they made it worst!!!🤦🏻‍♂️ I will NO longer renew my vip membership.
What the hellllllll
by GregJamison on 2020/10/20 04:19
Omg. Ok u took the flag option out. Fine. But now I can't change filters on different layers ? Now I have to use same filter as the person who opened it. Mr apple buds or less u really think I need the same filter as him to do my parts MY WAY? or if I'm using a High Quality performance mic on an amazing live sound and studio sounds mixer. I been with Smule since not long after the initial android release and Omg it was terrible. But we know why. Let me help you out or me and probably over half your subs are bouncing. Too it back to two updates ago. Bring our cover arts back. Give us our audio control back. And he'll give us flag back too. We really need that. Either get rid of or allow us to turn off the inbox or at least make a group creator the only one who can invite kick rename delete or anything except post in the room. Pleaaeessssss. That inbox is the root of all evil. And also an option to not allow messages from anyone u are not following. Etc. and make it where I can remove people who join a group effort that I start and they ruin it. I want to remove them it's my song please make it happen. And also allow us to remove a layer from our group opens and all individual joins. It's very simple coding. And the block system. Make it work geez. If I block someone THET SHOULD NEVER EVER SEE ME. not only can they still see me they can comment on tracks and chat in a inbox group and see my favorites and my pins. Blocked is. BLocked. I block you u are dead to me. I never ever wanna see you. Ever. Make it happen. All these years I've stayed silent. I've had enough now tho. Also make a report system for bullying etc without re explaining 4 times in email and nothing happens. If I say person a is harassing me then IDC if anyone else complains or not. One female complains with proof is enough. ZERO TOLERANCE. I know two ppl who killed themselves over bullies on this app. Give us the option to make fav lists on profiles public and private. Example I have a group private cypher. I'd like to select group send to .... whatever cypher or group of ppl whom I put in the private grouping number. Like me cypher rap sing. MAle female hook writ free gangsta fast emotional. All different tags I can apply to individuals I wanna invite to certain things. But first and foremost. DONT EVER DO WHAT U DID TO US ON THIS UPDATE ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. PUT ME IN BETA TEST PLEASE. IM A PROFESSIONAL WHOM U PROMISEDTO. VERIFY TWICE NOW AND HAVENT. IM ALSO A TECH GEEK AND SINGER RAPPER PRODUCER AND DJ. I WILL QUICKLY TELL U GOOD OR BAD. These new options. Make them additional options but that's it. I'd like to use the ss like u have it now but when I want to. Never forced. Please hurry or we leaving this app now. This is horrible. I've seen 7 groups disband and leave already. L
EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED
by KrystleMJ on 2020/10/20 03:53
I have been a loyal user and customer since 2017. The most recent update has completely ruined my smule experience. Smule listen to your users. I have 2 paid accounts. I will be cancelling both subscriptions if this update is not reversed.
To the Management of licensing agreements
by keegzmontana11 on 2020/10/20 02:24
I have been a paid subscriber of this app since spring and one thing that is a big issue for myself and many other subscribers is that there are not many Licensing agreements with top artists to be able to access recordings. recently I noticed that the developers Lost the licensing for many of Adele’s songs.Yes they do have a license agreement for Lewis Capaldi which is the reason I joined but since then like I said they’ve lost agreements with many top artists and I am very disappointed. Work harder on the licensing agreements or I will no longer be a paid subscriber unfortunately. I would hate to do that as I really do enjoy this app but for the price I think there should be more licensing agreements for all paid subscribers to enjoy.
Changes more often than Facebook
by trisalu on 2020/10/20 01:37
Where did the spinning earth go? One of the delights of this app was being able to see where in the world your singing partner is. Now that disappeared. Why do hundreds of random men with dummy accounts get to message me indiscriminately? I should be able to put a blanket block on people who aren’t followers/followees. It’s CONSTANT. The new filters are weird and confusing. They make it much harder to control the vocal track. It was GREAT 1.5 years ago. Literally the only thing that needed to change is that we needed the ability to fast forward/ rewind video like you can with the audio-only recordings. Now it’s all messed up. My yearly subscription runs out today and I’m left wondering whether it’s worth it to subscribe again. $60 is a big ask when they decide to pull these kinds of changes. I love singing but come on. This is a case of “it wasn’t broke so why’d you try to fix it?”
Optimizing your performance
by Jonc64 on 2020/10/20 01:00
I have been a Vip member for a while and it seem to me that in every update this app gets worse. For the price I pay for my yearly subscription this app should be a 5 star rate app. Now the problem I am having is that after I sing, the song can not be played. It says it is optimizing my performance, but it never finish optimizing. This is very frustrating.
Where’s our FX?!
by KJC1007 on 2020/10/20 00:45
Please put them back!!!
What have you done?
by Pamelina1 on 2020/10/20 00:41
I’w used this app for about six years now and the updates get worse every time you do one. 1. The gifts are ridiculous. Stupid actually. 2. the new FX; ridiculous 3. The fact that the next song doesn’t play automatically but instead keeps playing the same song until you scroll past it ( I’ve listened to the same join 4 times as I’m typing this🙄).. RIDICULOUS! 4. “internet connection” issues when my internet is fine; still ridiculous. And this is just to name a few. I use Super Studio FX and don’t understand the need for the different options, reverb, colors, etc. what does it all mean anyway? It sounds horrible. And when I finally get the sound that is the most decent (none sound good anymore) it doesn’t save that setting and I have to readjust on the next song. Your updates are horrible and I see more people that I always enjoyed singing with disappearing from the Smule Community. It used to be great but not anymore. You’re going downhill.
Whats up???
by jin_hehe on 2020/10/20 00:08
New update is trash and confusing with the voice filter set up. Will change my review when they make it more accessible again.
Free karaoke
by hippo1011 on 2020/10/19 23:47
It's like a free portable karaoke machine ! The only reason why I didn't give it the full 5 stars is because I wish they made the songs available in MP3 format so we can download it to our playlist Edit 10/19/20 - they added new filter looks ... it’s too complicated ... used to like the previous version of sound filters but now it’s really weird
Five star

The best App
Updates
by 4LF3R on 2020/10/19 23:01
I sing for years on this app and this last update is simply awful, one fx , you can’t change to another fx. I didn’t like at all . The last version was much better 😞
Latest update
by Rosy-Ray26673452 on 2020/10/19 22:29
I don’t like the latest update. They took the options off for the effects for your voice. Its not cool and I hate it. It makes singing songs and having fun hard and annoying. If not fixed I’m removing it as an app in my phone. I’m been on Smule for years and this new update is not it. I rate y’all with 1 star as of now and will continue to do so until the issue is fixed. Thank you, have a nice day.
Changes for the worse
by Adventfire on 2020/10/19 22:12
Smule used to be a great karaoke app, a bit overpriced but it was the best. Now they have been changing it for the worse. You used to have some great and easy to use voice and video filters. What you have now is a hot mess. A lot of long time veterans of the app are now considering leaving because they don’t like like the changes. It’s not a matter of getting used to them either, it’s just bad. Once I would have recommended this app to everyone, now I tell everyone to go elsewhere.
NEW UPDATE IS THE WORST
by Abichuela abii1994 on 2020/10/19 22:05
WHYYYYYYYY???? I've been using this app for years and this last update got me pretty upset. SMULE is not the same, the update before the last one wasn't good enough but a least it was better than this crap.. I REALLY MISS OLD SMULE! You guys think you're improving the app but that's not what you're doing. You guys are making it worse Smule app doesn't deserve not even a Star.
newest update
by amostarkaxakaWo on 2020/10/19 20:18
is there a way to go back to older version??!
New update is very complicated
by Jasmijoy on 2020/10/19 18:12
I hate the new updated version. I have been a VIP member for 3 years and never had any issues with the updates but the recent changes you made on video and sound effects are very disappointing.
Oops

New update
by Pinay300 on 2020/10/19 14:53
I’ve been using this app for 7 years now & thoroughly enjoyed it , but I hate this new version! Don’t like the new style and sound . Bring the old version back or at least give users the choice !
How to bankruptcy a company
by Coyote999999 on 2020/10/19 13:56
Don’t waste your money anymore. Smule has ruined the app. Can’t leave well enough alone!! If you want to add features cool but they took away everything good about it. I will not be renewing my subscription and find something that works. I would give this latest update negative stars if I could. Ridiculous 🙄🙄
Unfortunate Updates
by FedUp Douglas on 2020/10/19 13:25
I have been using this app for years and have enjoyed it for the most part. It has been a good way to connect with people from all over the world and be able to have a sense of expression through music without having to leave the house. I think those years there has been many updates suppose to fix this and fix that. Last year I was charged twice for a yearly renewal emailed them multiple times only to not hear anything back in regards to the excess pay they had taken illegally may I add as I only have one account. Update to when am OC closes you can see who joins you when it expires. That was a nice idea and they have taken that away now and the only way to find it is to scroll through your page to find the joins only to sometimes be able to see who joined or who didn’t. Went from taking live jam away to giving it back without a full video option unless a part of a group and leaving the camera button in the bright overly exposed globe they have set us in. To in the groups we cannot even change the camera around or invite people by typing their name you have to go through the list by scrolling to find someone and causes people to miss jamming with each other. And now a new update, it is nice that you all are trying to make changes but it is now even more difficult to even wanna join someone as the effects you have to have the same one as the other person and it honestly sounds ridiculous to me personally I’m having a hard time to want to even sing now. We are limited to 500 favorites. How about updating that to say 1000 or beyond. If you wanna update fine but the customers who are paying for the service to use even ones like me who got charged twice for a one year subscription ask us or let it be to where we have sometype of notifications or video sent by Smule on the new updates and how to use them. This has been overall a good app but the constant change is too much. There is an old saying “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” take that into consideration. Oh and also you want people to create stickers for you all to charge for the use of someone’s artwork? Come on y’all are really hustling aintcha?
Terrible update
by sarahbethbigmad on 2020/10/19 12:26
The New Smule Styles update is less functional and more confusing... we can't switch fx and we have to download a different app now? Also the settings have been adjust and there is SO much reverb it sounds ridiculous. This is the opposite of what VIP users want. More updates that favor video and duets and less creativity and ease of use for group and self collabs. Feels like regular long-time users who have formed a community on this app are being ignored once again. Canceled by subscription. Fix this situation, smule.
This app is awsome but people are being mean…
by FOOD_FOOD on 2020/10/19 12:13
This app is on my phone and tablet it’s truly amazing I wish I have it on my pc tho but I’m happy I have it on my tablet and phone! But…why are people calling this a waste of money it’s free for me also people are saying this USED to be great but it is great but someone does like it that’s good but I like it to
Wish I could sing older songs
by a casual pedestrian on 2018/12/04 02:24
I have been on this app for so many years, back to when I remember watching a million ads to be able to accumulate enough credits to purchase songs. I had built up quite a collection before things changed. I don’t mind the current system all that much, but there is one particular flaw that has always disappointed me more than others. I am a huge broadway fan, and as much as I love the new musicals that are popular right now, I also have a lot of favorites that maybe aren’t so current and popular. There are songs on the app, but nobody is singing them. I don’t have the type of money to be able to afford a VIP subscription, so with nobody making duets there is no way that I’m able to sing the songs that I want. What I’m suggesting is that for songs that maybe don’t get a ton of attention on the app, or at least the ones that are uploaded by Smule and not by users, there might be a way to make a permanent duet track, so that when people want to go back to older songs and sing them, they are able to even if they don’t have a VIP membership like me. Thank you for your time and possibly your consideration. This is mostly just my sadness over the fact that I’m not able to sing all the Songs For a New World songs that I want, but oh well.
It’s amazing but needs tune ups
by KawaiiJellyJelly on 2019/07/22 11:13
I think this app is amazing. I am able to upload any song I want into the songbook for free and I can sing it anytime I want. I think that feature is amazing. I have been a fan of kpop for a few years and I’ve been able to express my love for this music genre through this app and I’ve made many singing buddies through live jams. The app itself is great. One thing that is an issue though, is that there is not a log out option. If you want to log out of one of your accounts you can’t. You have to delete the app and then reinstall and log in. I feel this is very inconvenient for people who have more than one account. Personally, I have gathered groups of people and created online cover groups and I have one account that is use for those group uploads and it’s basically like and online entertainment account but it’s inconvenient that there is not a log out button/option because I have to delete and reinstall each time I want to switch from my personal account to my other account. Also I think it’s a rip off that when you purchase VIP on one type of device, you don’t have VIP on another type of device. It’s very inconvenient. Also... stream ATEEZ, it will change your life and also. Watch “Victory Song” by Stray Kids and pay attention to the blonde dude in the performance video. Thank you for your time. :)
Please remove the 100 video rule.
by Nadiawaly123 on 2018/11/10 13:57
I love this app! I make funny singing videos and I never had a problem with this app! I love how you can communicate with people that have the same interest in singing! This app is really great but the only problem is the limitations for the none V.I.P members. I get that they need to make money somehow but the other limitations such as not being able to start your own duets or solos were working just fine. I don’t mean to disrespect the creators in anyway I just really would appreciate if the creators would at least let us make as much videos as we want without being limited. I never really was a fan of the limitations on this app like not being able to sing some songs if you are not a V.I.P but I know that they need to make money somehow so I never really questioned it but I feel like it’s just not that fair that we can’t make more than 100 videos if we are not a V.I.P. Again I don’t mean in anyway to disrespect the creators and I really love this app and the hard work they put in creating it but I would really appreciate that when the new updates come out that you guys can take off the 100 video limitation for the non V.I.P members. Thanks so much, I absolutely love this app otherwise!!! 👌
Overjoyed
by babydoll0401 on 2020/09/16 12:41
I have been on Smule now for over 3 years and I wouldn't trade it for the world! When I started, I thought I would just sing and maybe join some people who could sing....but it is way more than that. The app itself is absolutely amazing. It has a huge library of songs and numerous versions and genres of the songs as well as options to sing audio or if you are like me and love the camera....you can video yourself. And there are so many other things that I could tell you but there is something else that is more important to me. The Community. Within the community, there are "Groups". These groups are people that have the same taste in music get together and chat, have challenges, support your recordings, join your songs, etc. I have met some that I honestly call my family. They are always there for me when I need to talk or need advice not only about singing but about life. You also have Smule members who put together competitios. Those are really fun! All in All, I recommend this app with all my heart and soul! Thank you Smule for helping me find my happy place. And to all my family, friends, and followers...I sure do love you guys!! God bless and stay safe! Babydoll0401
Good overall, but I️ do have complaints
by Shopaholic 75 on 2020/08/16 09:42
I do like the app and community. I love to sing and I️ love the kind and positive feedback that I️ get. However, I️ do have my issues with the app. The first is the VIP membership fee. It is quite expensive and I️ wish there was a way to reduce the price. I do enjoy the app, but it is a lot to pay for what it is. My next thing is that I️ wish the app developers would upload a wider variety of genres of music. I really enjoy various types of alternative music like punk rock and post-hardcore for example, but there are few songs that I️ can sing of those genres because a lot of the uploads for them are community uploads with the vocal track still present. It’s also difficult to find uploads for some less popular musical theatre uploads. My final complaint is the messages that I️ get. I don’t know if the app has any control of this, but I️ keep getting messages from middle aged men (I️’m 18, and I️ started getting them when I️ was still underaged). They mostly message in similar formats and often have similar stories. At first I️ thought that maybe they were scammers but they’ve never asked me for money. Are they bots? I really don’t understand what their deal is, who/what they are, or what they want and would appreciate if the app would look into this.
Just listen to us for once!
by Hannah M. Washington on 2020/10/16 17:54
I'm 17-years-old and have been using Smule since I was 10-years-old. I remember the days when Smule was called Sing!Karaoke and non-VIP members could watch videos and earn credits to open songs. Since then, things have changed quite a bit, and the changes were originally pretty good and were executed pretty well. I used to be excited when the app would come out with a new update . . . but now I dread it. For the past 3 pr 4 years every update that you guys have put out has been garbage. You continuously supply us with things we didn't ask for and ignore our complaints. There are very simple things that we want: (1) A logout button or way to change between multiple accounts without having to delete and redownload the app. (2) The ability to unlike collabs. (3) The ability to change the cover art on songs. (4) GIVES US THE OLD FXs BACK! THE NEW SYSTEM IS HORRIBLE! (5) You actually listening to us for a change. You claim that you "hear us", but it's obvious that you don't because we still haven't received anything that we've asked for. There has been outrage over your latest update and I know a multitude of people who are planning to move on to another platform, so I suggest you process this review carefully because everything I listed is not only what I want, but it's what a large majority of the Smule Community have been fighting for for years now.
This app used to be great!
by facebook.com/brad.bc.smith on 2020/02/12 20:13
I really used to enjoy using this app. SMULE had so much potential. I would try songs often, but rarely posted them to my profile. I wish I would have done that more often. But the app was fun even for someone just looking to rehearse songs. I don’t have any complaints about the company trying to make money, but I think they have stifled their community growth by making it a service, and such an expensive service. Wow! That’s a crazy amount of money to ask someone to spend each year just to sing remade/covered sometimes bad quality vocal removed songs. And they now LOCK features like sing solo, or even start a duet behind the paywall. Personally if you want a great community of users that are always making new content for your big paying customers to work with, you would allow at least so many free solo tracks and duet starts per account per month without having to pay $99 per year to use a phone app. I really miss the days of a one time purchase, I get that this is something that needs updates and moderation to an extent, but not everything is a service and deserves rates competitive with Netflix and Disney+. But that’s just the opinion of someone that used to think that SMULE was a really promising app before all of the cool features were removed and placed behind a monthly fee.
Good app, but some things to improve...
by Shebeb idnidnodnisnosb on 2019/12/05 21:02
First of all, I just wanna say that Smule is the best singing karaoke app in the AppStore. I’ve meet tons of people with the same interests and we talk, so getting to meet new people is a plus. I love the option to submit songs to the song book just incase they don’t have it. The only flaws I really have is some bugs and no logout feature. I sometimes help my friends when they go on hiatus, so I need to log into their account right? The only way I can do that is to delete the app and relogin, which is a real pain. Let’s say I want to start a new profile and switch between the two, it’s so annoying to do it though because there is no logout feature. Also in the vip customize your own profile (which I have) for the color choices, you should be able to put your own color. Let’s say you have a baby pink profile theme going on, yet there is no option for pink. So the main things I really want Smule to add is logout feature and choose your own color for vip customization option. Once again I’m not bashing the app, I’m just saying some things they could add to improve the app and make it better.
I love this app but unfortunately...
by SoulSurferBlack on 2018/10/10 02:23
The VIP purchase got highly out of line... (when I first got this it didn’t have to put vip in there so I was happy without it) Even though I’m able to sing with other people, the part of the problem is “I don’t think I want to sing any of these songs with them, Is there anything else I would try out?” I’ll admit that’s how I am. Because when I get invited to a duet it’s those songs, I probably don’t even know or that it’s not my favorite. Then after I’ve gone threw those I try to sing either solo or maybe put in a duet, but apparently after the time’s has changed, it’s getting a little more boring and annoying now while not having VIP... I still have it but I hardly ever use it now because of it. I’m sorry people who works in this app but you’ve actually pretty much ruined this over trying getting more money... You probably need it for whatever kinda of reasons but... I’m sorry to say but your being... well... “Extremely Spoiled”... And even though I love the app... I’m slowly starting to feel like deleting this not “just” because of how expensive it is... but because I can’t pick what I want to try out anymore either. I love this, but it’s already taking up a lot of space on my device. So this is my result
I love this App not so much now
by buddyblue on 2017/11/08 14:47
I love to sing alone and with another person! I find it relaxing! I’m changing that review I just auto renewed through iTunes my VIP Subscription. Now for the second time the VIP status is gone! I have sent many e mails no answer! The last time they fixed it and said I should renew through them no way! I called Apple support and they said that there should be no reason why I would have to renew through Smule! ITUNES will renew my money within 2 months. When this happened before they told me that there was something wrong and I really didn’t understand. I’m hoping they help me strange thing is I have had this App since 2014 with no problem what happened SMULE FIX IT. JUST BEWARE NEVER GO THROUGH SMULE TO PAY pay through iTunes because they are very good about giving refunds and they don’t take money out when they aren’t supposed Too not sneaky! I am wondering if they take the VIP status away so you go through them that would be terrible! BEWARE PEOPLE! HAS THIS HAPPENED TO ANYONE ELSE? JUST WONDERING! ITS BEEN TWO DAYS AND NO ANSWER SIX EMAILS LATER. NOT HAPPY AT ALL. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS COMPANY NOT GETTING BACK TO ITS COSTUMERS. FROM AN ANGRY COSTUMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
a waste of money
by a former smule user on 2020/10/15 20:30
when i first got this app around 2018 the app was amazing, fun, and super addictive because it was a place where you can sing without being judged so much. but the 2020 updates are disgusting, first of all wheres the cover art? no one on smule cares where people live around the world, we want to see our cover art. us smulers take hours to make nice cover art so our group collabs look aesthetically pleasing, so that people can have a nice feel as they listen to the song, but it’s gone and all that editing was wasted for nothing. and next is fx, when it comes to a group collab people like using different fX because it makes the song sound so much better, but to only have ONE? that’s bulls*it, people spend so much time on smule recording and using different fX so people sound decent enough, and the new update gives you one fX? what a shame, smulers are leaving everyday because of these updates and i’m glad they are because this app is just trash now. we practically pay money so we can get a good app in return, but instead you smule creators are just eating our money over the most stupidest app ever. i’m no longer using this app until you bring cover art back and all the FX back to how it was. and to anyone reading this, this app is a waste of money, practically robbing you. play it safe and DONT buy VIP it’s for the best.
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Great singing app!
by BlackBeltShell on 2019/07/22 07:23
Downloaded this app a couple of years ago and never used it..it was brought to my attention again by a friend last year... Been singing pretty consistently for 15 months now and having a LOT of fun! I’ve met some amazing people with amazing talent! I’ve found my voice again after not singing for many years all thanks to this app! For those that are whining about not being able to sing solos because you aren’t VIP...many VIP singers will record a song and not sing it and put SOLO on it just for those that aren’t VIP, so you can sing too. Go look...they are out there! My advice to the developers...get rid of auto tune it really makes people that can’t sing..sound even worse! Now about the gifts...really? Those are pointless and juvenile and you only offer 1 free one! Instead, perhaps you can add more options to the ❤️ button..something similar to emojis/emoticons..maybe even make them animated. Last...make it so we can send more than 5 invites when we send out our recordings to our friends/groups. All in all a great app to sing on, keep up the good work!

I like it but...
by heaven_1267🎧 on 2018/09/10 04:49
I used sing since 2012 and I love but with the recent updates I haven’t really like the app as much... First in the past used to be able to watch a Videos to get credits to buy songs or so sometimes they would automatically give you credits on your profile as soon as you login but now you have to be a VIP just to get songs seriously...Second you used to be able to view all your videos from your first everyone to your most recent now you have to be a VIP just to view any of your older posts after two years ago like wow...Third you used to be able to choose if you want to do a solo duet or group song if you don’t have enough credits for the song you got to earn more but now just to be able to do a solo duet or group creation for people to join you also have to be VIP just wow.. it’s really upsetting because some people can’t give VIP i used this app for a long time now I’m 13 even if I asked my mom to buy VIP on this app I know she wouldn’t and I know plenty of people are probably upset over the new updates because now you just have to buy vip for stuff like
Great, but ADD BLUETOOTH MIC SUPPORT!!
by UnknownPersõn101 on 2020/04/29 01:24
Hiya! I’ve been using this app for like six years now. I use it on and off, but when I do use it it is very easy to sing songs and record them and all that technical jazz. A lot of people are now relying on wireless, bluetooth-enabled technology to get through their days. I think it would be awesome to include support for bluetooth microphones! I have wireless, bluetooth earbuds, and when I want to sing a song I am unable to do so without annoying feedback. The app doesn’t even detect that I have earbuds at all. It just says “headphones recommended” and plays the music through my phone speaker. I could just go out and buy a pair of wired headphones, but with the ongoing pandemic and the financial troubles I’m sure we’re all dealing with, it’s kind of hard to do that. I have no idea how all that technological stuff works, but I would certainly enjoy this addition to the app. Especially now, since I’m literally trapped in my house 24/7. I also remember when you could earn coins to unlock solo songs, and think maybe that would be nice to add back (maybe just for certain songs). I give three stars because of my current inability to enjoy the app :( PLEASE FIX THIS!!! ❤️
NEVER download this app. Here’s why:
by Arsenic Reviews on 2019/06/14 23:56
I had Smule OG. It was so fun and I could just sing my heart out for FREE. You might see ads of great singers singing songs you probably like. Download it for free, sing one song, then overpay to even sing another. Honestly, I don’t have any type of social media and I don’t want to. This is just a sly form of social media where you post and sing along with others. ‘Others’ as in random people. You also have to sign up with a Facebook account, phone, or email. Obviously, as I already stated, I don’t have social media so Facebook was out. I didn’t want the developers to call me for something so I went along with email and I already regret it. This app is pointless. I hate it. Also, you can’t sing without signing up. Also, this app does NOT help you with your vocals or help you sing better. For my first song, just to prove it, I did it in a weird voice and sometimes just whispered and I got the highest score and a ‘Bravo! Good job!’ This game is rigged. Don’t waste money on it. I was excited, though, because it had songs I like but I had to pay to sing more. I deleted the app immediately after that. If you read this, DON’T BUY THIS APP. I’m literally reviewing after I delete the app. Developers, thanks for making a scam. Much appreciated. Thank you for your time.
Great app, but have some flaws...
by Emma cute girl on 2020/04/06 22:17
This app is great but I don’t like one of the rules. It’s the 100 recordings rule. If you aren’t subscribed or a VIP, you can’t have more that’s 100 recordings. I love this app. I’m a person that likes to always try to improve on what I like doing and this is a great app to improve your singing voice by singing when you have time. I am in love with music, especially K-Pop. This is also a great app to listen to music. I would be happy if Smule would change that rule and let people without the subscription to be able to sing however many songs they want and keep them on their profile. If people want to sing more, but the already have 100 recordings, and don’t want a subscription, what would they do? Do you think that they would just not sing anymore? If someone wants to do something and another thing is blocking them from doing what they want, most people will try. Basically, I think Smule shouldn’t have the 100 recording limit to people that don’t have a subscription. I think that Smule should take that rule off.
Can’t Load nor Listen to songs
by Donna Hubler on 2020/09/10 04:19
I have had this app for two years with a break in between. First time the app would not load and count followers, I would get messages I had new followers but they would never be added. (So could not invite them to sing with me) I researched this on their site and they simply said it doesn’t matter your number of followers just sing and have fun. Obviously something they didn’t care to investigate nor fix. When signed up again, seems first problem I mentioned was fixed, but I have had nothing but problems loading invites to sing (I get error messages or will simply change screens) and then listening to songs I have done in the past, they WILL NOT LOAD and I have emailed support innumerable times with no resolution. I am told to send them a video? How I have asked to accomplish this with no response. I can use all of the other hundred or so apps installed on my phone along with other singing apps but CANNOT use this one. I have asked several times for my money back since I CAANOT GET THIS APP TO WORK but they ignore me. They simply don’t care. So if you have a problem don’t expect any help. I CANNOT use this app but they can use my money. Been going on since June so have wasted enough time.
Big fan with small issues
by TheHailstorm on 2019/07/21 20:55
I’ve been using this app for a little over 2 years now and it has become one of my favorite things. Especially because I’m a theater kid and there are TONS of theater songs and people make groups for them and it’s AMAZING. But I only give it 4 stars because it has a lot of stupid updates, for example, the newly installed gifts that are pointless, you need VIP or a lot of VIP friends to do a lot of things in this app, and sometimes the notifications just stop working even though they are on in the app and device settings. Also it took them years to get Bluetooth enabled, and we’ve been asking for the ability to make a playlist for like a year now and it still hasn’t been created, but useless gifts are there! I know half of that sounded really negative but I honestly do love this app. It’s really easy to use and it’s great to talk to other people who like the same things I do. Plus it is LITERALLY GLOBAL so there is literally ALL KINDS OF MUSIC. I don’t see why anyone who loves singing would dislike the app.
Stop 🛑
by 100%MeMyself&I on 2018/09/19 18:37
PLEASE Stop storing sooo much junk on my phone! For an app that you can’t even open if you’re not online you sure store a lot on my phone! I deleted this app and then re-downloaded it, and as soon as I logged into my account it stored an extra 1.7 gb of data!!! I love singing and I have friends who use this app so I don’t want to delete it, but my phone has limited space! Also how is it possible that people can afford $8 A WEEK for VIP??? I know for sure that I can’t! Also please stop shortchanging you’re non-VIPs so much! I read somewhere within the app (I don’t remember where) that non-VIPs have 100+ songs to choose from otherwise they can join others or become a VIP. Well, I have only found about 5 songs that I can sing or open as invites (and trust me I have looked very very hard)!!! The other 95+ must either not exist or are in a different language! And another thing: seriously!?!?!? I have to be a VIP to listen to MY OWN RECORDINGS!?!?!?!?!?! I wouldn’t mind if others couldn’t listen to them but me!?!?!?! Really!?!?!?! Sure I can listen to a few of them but the more I sing the less I can listen to! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS APP UNLESS YOU REALLY LOVE TO SING, CAN AFFORD TO PAY $8 A WEEK (which obviously I cannot), OR REALLY DON’T MIND GETTING SHORT CHANGED!!!
Brilliant Platform
by ameliAmuseD on 2018/12/22 01:06
As an artist of many mediums and a founder of two organizations to support creativity as well as connect the muses with the creators and inspire others, I am well versed in apps made for profit VS option of ‘prophecy’ I applaud Smule for their artistic centered apps, though Sing! Karaoke is my favorite. The options are magnificent for those interested in singing for sake of joy thru live streaming free-styles with own instruments, Lyrics, choreography, ect. I didn’t sing Karaoke before this came out. Now I have connected with talented and kind people worldwide utilizing our voices, remembering to speak up and be the verbs we are, instead of the nouns we are told to be. Excellently thought out, fantastically well cared for, and admired much. I recommend Smule Sing! Karaoke to all, and thank the developers for keeping in contact the connection of artists, aware of stream. When you grouped your magic guitar app with Sing! years ago I knew this was not made to sell anything but consciously promote worth in the arts. Ty! ~ meliamuse
Has gotten so bad!!
by Rebecca Withey on 2020/10/16 15:10
I HATE THIS FEEAKING UPDATE!!! You ruined everything I love about this app! This app has gotten so bad!!! The newest update is crap!!!! You took away all audio mixing capabilities forcing users to use a single effect after years of being able to stack multiple layers for group songs?! That is just cruel!! A group of harmonizers and I were in the middle of doing a complex group song and this update completely crapped all over the song and destroyed days of work. I don’t want all of these stupid fancy filters! WHY ARENT YOU LIST RING TO YOUR USERS WHO PAY FOR THIS FREAKING APP??? I want to just see my friends face-to-face, sing and have a good audio choices and video choices separately, have freaking live jams the way that they used to be so we could just sing publicly with people and meet people from around the world, I don’t need gifts, I don’t need super filters, I don’t need Snapchat anymore like stuff. If I wanted to do something like this I would just as well just go over to TikTok! I am starting to hate this! I have made amazing friends on Smule and a lot of us are trying to find another app, like BandLab. Those new to Smule will never know how wonderful this app used to be. This company does NOT care about its user base.
Smule review
by gabMV11 on 2019/12/23 04:30
I am going to be open and honest with you guys. So I got the app and for a little while I could sing for free, then after some time I got back on the app and I realized that I could not sing for free. 😞😒 and on top of that the only way you can sing on it is if you go to invite and sing with some Random person you don’t even know. I am not saying the app is bad, but there are some thing that I don’t like about the app. For the parents if you did not know this the app is considered a social media. I mean it just ruins it for the people who really want to use the app and cant because they can’t pay or sing with some Random person you don’t even know. I have tried some other apps just like this for example it was something like the voice that I got and I don’t even think I got to sing on it cause it wants me to pay. Once again the app can by fun until you have to pay and do all these things that some people can’t. I wanna say that you have to pay for the VIP. If you guys know some we that you can prevent these things from happening please let me know,😊 but this is just the experience I’ve had with the app. I hope these things like having to pay after some time can be changed. 🙂
Where is the talent at?
by Mysterynite77 on 2019/03/17 17:53
I am a singer when I got this app I was shocked that a lot of vip members can’t carry a tune way off but yet their video has million of views comments they are wonderful but yet ones commenting are worse singers then them people this isn’t a singing app it’s a buy your way to the rank and level singing app I dropped it about a year ago even when I didn’t use it they charged me not happy at all with it I never want to ever use it again only way I would is if I wanted to download one of my songs I recorded just horrible people who are tone deaf who lie to others say they could go on American idol even those so called groups wanted me to join and you have to get invited to be super talentive I heard some of them I thought no way cause I know what singing is they ain’t got it I never did except their invite cause they knew I could sing but how ever it floats your boat if you wanna spend money on something to drain your bank account go for it not me🤦🏻‍♀️
how bad the background is for some people
by fun game word cookie on 2018/07/10 01:32
some people get bad backgrounds beacuse they have noises bothering them when they are singing. And when that happens people dont want to listen to that recording that has bad noises in the background. I dont understand why people just dont go in quiter places like were people wont bother you or talk to you in your singings, plus that is the worst part about the singings. The annoyinces are bad they can get worser sometimes. This singing app is good to use but, those annoying people in your background make people hate your singings and just by singing people want to annoy you and your veiwers by that i mean your viewers will get annoyed by watching your video. When people dont like your videos its not by your tone of voice its just beacuse your background was a little too anoying and too loud. When people annoy you they sometimes may be louder than your singing. When people annoy you in your backgrounds ur singing becomes quiter than your usal singing tone of voice.
Great, but what happened to landscape mode?
by kre410 on 2018/03/23 22:52
This last update took away the ability to rotate my iPad. The reason it’s important is the camera. If I want to do a video I have to prop on pillows and the charger port is on the bottom and there’s a cord problem.....cord, chord...pun. Ok so please bring it back. My iPad Pro is designed to prop in landscape mode. On the positive and there are many...there is no song too underground or obscure. Someone has uploaded it. If I can fine the original Venus In Furs by Velvet Underground, you can find most anything unless it’s x-rated. The quality is spot on and no special headset needed. This works perfectly with you apple headset. It’s fun and the community is very forgiving and kind. Oh sure, you have some Divas and clubs who judge...but they are nobody and I simply block anyone who is rude or critiques me. After all, this is karaoke and its for fun. We aren’t looking for the next big thing here. Anyway, it’s very fun and hours go by quickly. And that’s what’s important . Fun.
Great Therapy
by Pzammy on 2017/09/21 23:50
This is one of the best forms of therapy I have ever found would you like to sing in anyway this is it. I'm 51 and sing-along I met some really cool people some not so cool people but it's anywhere you go or anything you just got to pick them out right have a good time sing with people all over the world don't judge other people sing with them and have fun everyone has their own style such a different variety of music you don't have to pay if you don't want to if you don't want to pay to sing a lot to do with us if you want to pay a little bit a month or a yearly feethat would be your choice and you can make that. Pick out your own song sing solos or get some people to join you I love it so glad that my daughter him tell me about this website I'll talk to people about it work we have a good time with it so can you release in life I need some therapy this just may be your answer please make sure you wear your headphones have a blessed day
I freaking love 💗 this app
by DA_POTATO🥔 on 2019/08/13 16:00
So I’ve been on this app for almost two years and this art is amazing! Everyone I’ve sang with are super nice to me. I’m only eleven and I have so many amazing followers and back when I was a beginner with Smule all my followers were and still are VIPs. I’ve had so much fun. To me Smule is my escape from reality. It’s an amazing program with awesome people with incredible talent. It’s really a place where I can be myself and shine while having fun in the process. The thing with the VIP that everyone else complains about is actually not as bad as they make it out to be. There are people who are nice enough to make solos for those who aren’t vip. And honestly I have more fun singing with other people rather than myself. I love Smule and I hope others can find there talent and once they do show others what your voice is capable of. Just remember every voice is beautiful in their own special one of a kind unique way. Keep singin’ - Love jlrosebud
Mildly inconvenienced
by _PaigeK_ on 2019/09/08 04:14
So Smule is a daily activity for me. It’s part of the routine now and I’ve been on the same account for four years. I’ve never had an urge to leave a review until now and it’s simply to shed light on a recent update to the app. The new addition of “gifts” is a complete redundancy to the already-present options to love or comment on an OC and, frankly, the addition of gifts next to these two choices is annoying to look at as well as annoying to watch as the gifts given cycle through as you’re listening to an OC. This new update has no feasible use and clutters the design of the app as well as the ease of use. What’s the point of a “gift”? It means nothing to me as the receiver of one, and I don’t think I would ever send one to another user. Overall, I still use Smule and this doesn't deter my love for the platform in any substantial way, it’s an incredible app! I just wanted to express my confusion and annoyance with a new feature in some way, so that solution was writing a review.
Fun app but..
by Jessmyst on 2017/10/16 03:18
The app itself is a fun concept and I do enjoy it. However, for an app that makes you subscribe for many features, they seem to care very little about being easy to use for everyone. As an iPhone 7 user, there is of course no headphone jack, making wired headphones annoying to deal with since it’s so easy to loose the adapters. Anyone who uses the app a lot knows that headphones make for much better quality recordings. Well, for whatever reason, the app makes it so if you use Bluetooth headphones; they disconnect when you go to record. This has been an issue for a while and I’ve seen many complaints, but with each update they make, they fail to fix that. I expect more from an app that forces you to pay for many of the features than ignoring the complaints of users. I’ll continue to use it because it is quite fun for passing time, but I unsubscribed to it and do not plan to pay for it again until they fix that issue. It’s such a simple feature to include and they continue to ignore the needs of the customers
Great App! Just dropping an opinion.
by Samaria Taylor 😊 on 2020/03/27 00:06
I enjoy this app and enjoy singing on it as well. It’s pretty cool to be able to sing with people across the world and share my love of singing with others. I think the only thing that I would say that bothers me is that in my activity tab, I have songs from accounts “verified” on the app such as celebrities whom I never followed, nor am I interested in seeing their content. I think it would be much easier and more organized for my activity tab if you all could ask who we would like to follow in terms of verified accounts. That way, my activity doesn’t get clogged up with things that aren’t my taste. I just don’t care for constantly scrolling through my activity to find the people whom I actually follow instead of these artists whom I didn’t. I’m not sure if this bothers anyone else, and I’m also not sure why the app is set up this way, but I figured why not let them know. You’re all doing great!
Amazing App
by Mallardman76 on 2019/08/08 19:45
I love This app so much! Except I hate the new update! Why can only VIPs do live Jams now😡😡😡 I did lie Jams everyday and now all of my followers and friends are so disappointed in this app! Why would u do that Smule, why? This app was amazing for many reasons but this is just utterly stupid! I was so upset at first I almost deleted the app! I understand you’re just trying to get the profit of people becoming VIPs but this just crossed the line! I loved live jamming with my friends and hearing different voices all around the world but this update was terrible I am very sad that u did this and I would really like u to change that again! Until Smule updates back to regular I would absolutely NOT recommend this!!!! Very bad idea! This app actually gave the non VIPs a chance to have the same options as VIPs! Now it’s just another one of those apps that u only have one option VIP or nothing! Please update back to regular 😡 Thanks - A Very Unhappy Girl 🙁🙁🙁
The VIP
by Cheyenn0 on 2019/11/09 16:38
I absolutely love having this app. But the reason I gave it 3 stars is all because of the VIP. There are so many songs that I would like to sing, but I cannot since no one else sings the songs so I cannot duet with them. So I would recommend that some of the less known songs would be free and then any of the more popular ones the user would have to duet. And the Livestreams when I first got the app anyone could do them, But now with the VIP I cannot do a livestream anymore which I liked joining more people who were my age that I could sing along with, now the VIP is mainly grown-ups so I cannot join any. So I would just ask that the VIP lifestream would be taken down so anybody can livestream again and that some of the songs anyone could do it with them and not have to have the VIP for not just artist sing-alongs. This is just a recommendation but I hope that it would possibly help some of the users of the app and get you some better ratings. Sorry about this lengthy review. Just want to address some issues that I have at the app.
Good, if you like being scammed
by #marvelisawesome on 2019/10/21 16:31
I just got this app and it was fun at first,but all of that VIP stuff just annoys me. Honestly, who wants to pay 9 bucks a month for a video game? And who can afford that also? I mean like, people already pay like 10 bucks a month for PHONE SERVICE, witch is WAY better than a video game. Also, because I am not VIP, I cannot record my own videos, I have to do them with a STRANGER, and not everyone has a good voice. Also, (this is not my iPhone) I am not allowed to be on social media, so when I play Smule, I can’t post, but after I make a video, it post it automatically! 😡 for example, I did a video with Lucas Graham, and it was ok I guess, but the next day, I went on the app, and my video was loved by a stranger! So it posted it automatically! And I’m not allowed to post! So now I have to delete my videos right away, or else it will post them. I find not being able to make my own videos because I’m not VIP obnoxious. I mean, I know they got to make money somehow , but that’s just unfair. So get this app if you don’t mind being scammed. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
This App is Crap!
by Via2096 on 2018/08/19 19:42
I wanted to check this app out, because I saw lots of ads for it on Smule’s Magic Piano app. I love to sing, so I thought it would be fun. But it’ll be a cold day in heck before I sing with some stranger on the other side of the world. You need VIP to sing by yourself? That is ABSURD! PREPOSTEROUS! You shouldn’t have to pay to sing! All of this VIP crap... I am sick of it. Every app there is now, it seems like you have to pay for everything in a FREE app! We are all “Very Important People”. We all make a difference in this world. We are all special and unique. I’m sure there are talented people like myself who find it ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS that you should have to pay that much money to use a FREE app! Singing is my life, and you are OBVIOUSLY too incompetent to provide an app worthy of someone as talented as me. Considering that I AM competent enough to know that it is RIDICULOUS to charge that much money to use the app. You might as well get rid of VIP and make the app A Billion dollars! This app has WAY too many 5 star reviews! There must be lots of incompetent people in this world! Now... If you’ll excuse me I am going to browse through the app store for a GOOD singing app!
The updates and customer service are horrible
by sahayla02 on 2020/10/16 19:50
I have used this product for years and one thing has been unfortunately consistent, poorly rolled out and thought out updates. It is clear that those who regularly use the app are not consulted. The only ppl who seem to like the updates are those who you actively promote. I have yet to see a positive review of the latest update. Also, your responses that users just need to learn how to use it are extremely condescending. We understand exactly what the new changes are and they are horrible. We do not like them, they are limiting, and ruin the experience. There are plenty of times being able to leverage completely different sound fx in a single song is necessary and results in a much better product. We use the product and actually sing, it is clear whoever thinks up these changes does not. Do not presume to tell us what sounds better and that that is why we should embrace this. Like I said, your responses have been extremely condescending. I am so disappointed in this change, rollout and response. Do better and change it back!
The new UI is not an improvement.
by DragonFractal on 2020/08/20 18:38
I really loved using this app. Please revert back to the previous UI. Why? 1. It is too easy to switch songs by accident. I scroll down to see comments, not to switch songs. I choose songs deliberately. I am now getting frustrated and exiting the app sooner than I otherwise would. 2. It is hard to navigate the playback because the slider is not sensitive enough to notice my finger most of the time. Instead, I end up accidentally pressing the share button or some other button below the playback bar. Please, at a minimum, fix this. I actually prefer the version where the play/pause button was to the left of the slider (that you had a couple years ago) because it was easy to stop playback at a specific time, see what exact time that was, and listen to a certain section over and over for practice. 3. Where did the list of singers in a group go? 4. Where did the globe go? I loved seeing people’s general locations around the world.
Great app if equal access!
by Kay Music Fan on 2019/02/23 20:53
Why did some people get Spotlight AND Hype FX before others got either...? Love this app but still really want Hype FX available to ALL soon! Also wondering why Super Harmony only shows up on some songs, and isn’t a set iOS FX choice...? Other issue is with the “bad gateway” message where songs are just GONE when you try to save them...ONCE I found them saved in a queue like Smule was backing them up, but it seems like that was only one day, cus I never saw it again otherwise. And the option for saving something when you come back to the app has NEVER worked for me, only crashed the app until I agreed to trash the recording. If you could fix these problems, it would be a 5 star app. And if you could magically find a way to allow for an in-ear monitor when using Bluetooth headphones (the lag currently makes this impossible, but Bluetooth is becoming a necessity), that would make you a 6 star app 😆😆😆
I love this app!
by LunaLizzard on 2019/01/29 18:26
It’s so much fun! I would’ve given it 5 stars but when I signed up for the 7 day VIP trial it only worked 5 of those days. I contacted support and this was their response: It appears that you have not started a free trial from the account associated with email address l......@.....com. If you subscribe to a free trial, you’ll gain the same VIP privileges as a subscriber. If you enjoy your free trial, do nothing and it will automatically convert to a VIP subscription at the end of the trial period. So I sent screenshots to show them I had and their response was very... Nonchalant. They repeatedly told me to check my iTunes subscriptions. Even after asking if they could give me the days that didn’t work, their response was As per our system, your 7-day trial started on Dec 17th and ended on Dec 24th so everything seems fine on our end. Unfortunately, we do not have any further information about your subscription, as it was processed via iTunes. Please check out the Apple subscription article if you have further questions. I’d have to just say, I have had a lot more enjoyable experiences with other companies support but as far as the app goes I enjoy it a lot. I haven’t heard of anyone else having issues with the trial so maybe it was something on my end. But after the issue I experienced I’m unsure about paying for VIP. I think I’ll just continue with a free account.
All Time Favorite App 💜
by Joro9o on 2018/12/02 23:20
I have always loved singing, just not around/with other people listening - Until this year. I was going through a rough patch, started to record myself singing on Voice Memos (acapella in parking garages and showers for the acoustics) as a distraction from life. Then I wondered if there was a better way to save my songs. Googled and searched the App Store and found this gem! All it took was that one week trial and I was hooked.. I can go back and fix minor mistakes I made without having to record the ENTIRE song again. I can add a filter effect to change my voice to match the music of the songs I’m singing. I can sing along with celebrities. I can sing along with friends I invite privately or publicly. I can even sing with strangers around the world! Music is healing, and music truly does connect all humans. Thank you Smule for helping us to heal and unite all of us! 🙏🏼

Smule really helps me relax , I can watch videos of people singing, even duet with them or solo.I love to watch lives because they show me to be confident.I enjoy Smule a lot , Just a few things tick me off , How you can’t do Solo or start a Group or Duet because you’re not VIP. I really have nothing to do at home so I play on my phone and Smule is one of the best , but I think Smule should have some better quality , Cause some people ( Like me ) Don’t like earbuds or headphones, they irritate me so much so yeah... But on the bright side , I can have fun when I’m bored and have a great day with the microphone In MY PHONE!!! 🏅🏅Also, It’s so amazing that you can meet new friends sing with them and create friendship through 1 single song! Smule brings together people which is lovely. 😊 I love how you can change the voice to Like “ Double You “ ( That’s my Fave. ) I have to wrap it up here , But Smule , Keep rising , gaining and Winning! 🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤💗💗
Group songs
by Tobytyga on 2018/08/28 17:46
I think it’s not right for anyone to subscribe to Smule when they have a discrepancy in their group song allowing sabotaging of the song. What Smule don’t understand that It causes conflicts, when allowing people to sing over everyone else instead choosing a part of the song as group song suggests. Smule allows this to happen and want address the problem instead turn a blind eye and refuses to refund you. That’s a problem. Nobody should have to pay for someone’s else mistake. Smule doesn’t give you an option to delete the one off the song so they get it right. But instead you have to delete the whole song and start over again for the same action to happen again by someone else. Then you want customers to respectful, when Smule can’t hold same standard. Buyers beware you want this out until you subscribe.
Suggestions
by Flak shahs on 2019/09/06 04:09
My sister and I both live the concept of this phone game there’s only 2 things I suggest 1. Work on making council versions of your game (such as pair with Xbox and or Nintendo something like that) that connect to the internet same as the phone app to allow people with head sets and microphones that already play games and like singing to have a bigger screen and more control over the sound of our voices and more playing options 2. Make your own head set or pair with a already well known company to perfectly match with the singers. Inturn help them with harmonies and vocals by making them have a good amount of song and voice Hurd rather then the singers putting in headphones not being able to hear them selves screaming the music sounding bad and never getting the practice or recognition they are working towards all while using your fun vocal app.
Need a pitch adjusting option
by KHAN ROSNE on 2018/09/27 09:22
Hi. This is Rosne. I’m using smule from 10 month. It’s a greatest app for singing. I’m using every option of it. I’ve improved my singing so much better than before. I’m just loving this app so much. Everything is so well in this app. But one thing I want the developers to make. Please make an option as pitch adjust. Sometimes some music creat on high scale & everybody can’t sing on high scale. So some people still try to sing on high scale or skip it. Sometimes We can’t sing our favourite song because of high scales. But singing out of your voice range can damage voice... please make this “”PITCH ADJUST”” option so that anybody can sing any song. I’m requesting smules developer to make this option pleeeeeaaaassssseeeee....... & make it a fastest app ever with fast massages & fast loading. we want to sing heart out..... sing to relief our heart. Not to damage voice. Thanks for reading my review 🎼🎼🎼
Deceiving, very disappointed
by ElizabethPauline on 2019/07/10 08:47
I got the app for the sole purpose of recording and listening to practice my vocals, never even got to record anything. You have to pay $9.99 a week to sing literally anything other than something in an entirely different language, or something you’ve never heard of before. Sure, you could do duets, but I’d rather record alone and not share my progress on an open profile like an Instagram, I personally find it embarrassing. If duets are the only option offered for non “VIP” members, this app is deceitfully claiming to be the best singing app. Extremely limiting. But, if price is not an object, the quality of what I had seen was very nice and there are many different options to choose from. This is literally the only app in the 10 years that I’ve owned an iPhone that I have even bothered to write a review for. I was very excited to try the app but the unwavering restriction to content was very disheartening. Hope this can be modified in the future.

I love this game no joke I get to do duets with other people and I have so much fun on it I don't know what I would be doing if I didn't have this game I would probably be bored sitting in my room doing nothing set for homework I love this game and I've had so much fun playing this game and I am not being paid to say this message like some people think I actually really love this game and I think anyone who doesn't have this game should get it because other people around the world that have singing talents can use the singing talents and sing with other people and people can get really high expectations and be really happy with this game and it even rows my whole my extreme a lot for singing I think I'm not now might not be stage fright after this I want to play every single day after school and I cannot wait to play some more!!!!!!!!!😇😍😂😝😜😍😇😂🤣😘😋😋😋
Meh
by NickiTheFox on 2019/05/19 04:15
Yeah, it’s great and all but I’ve gotten double charged for some reason. I get it, it’s only $10 a week but at the same time, I can’t be dealing with getting double charged. I have literally the same charge on my account back to back. From the same place as this app always charges me. It’s happened once but if it happens again, I’ll probably end up unsubscribing from the app and not using it again. Besides that little issue, the app is great. I enjoy being able to hear myself when talking or singing but it’s not an echo that makes you mess up. It’s weird but it’s very satisfying to be able to correct the flaws I have in my voice. I can pick out the wrong notes I sing a split second after I sing them because I can hear myself. I don’t have to hope for the best and see if my recording did any good. I’ll technically know before hand. I think it’s perfectly balanced sound echo that doesn’t mess with your head. I don’t know how else to put it.
I love this app!
by MeaghanLemon on 2017/10/19 13:52
It's a great app. I love it! The only thing I would like changed is that I would like it a bit better if they could somehow either figure out how to make it so that you would not need headphones to reduce feedback, or stop telling you to put headphones on when you just don't care about the feedback noise. Sometimes a bit of feedback can be okay (depending on the song), so, sometimes, I don't care. But whatever, it's a great app, and there are so many good songs on there! Edit: one more thing I would like them to do is I would like a way to delete unwanted invites (invites to songs you don’t know or don’t like). I get invited to sing some songs that I’ve never even heard of, and some songs that I’m not really into. I’d like a way to delete those invites so that I can more easily get to the invites to songs that I do want to sing!
Livejams issues and non-vip struggles
by kellita99 on 2019/09/11 22:28
Livejams were one of the best updates that this app had however, it would’ve been better if there weren’t so many issues coming with them. Here’s what I mean by issues; First, livejams have been crashing more than usual; The app just randomly shuts down during lives which causes people to lose their lives. Also, it’s annoying when you’re singing a song and then the app crashes in the middle of it. Next, livejams are also lagging more than usual; it lags so much that you can’t hear anything the people on the mic are saying, your screen freezes (if you’re on the mic) or either the lyrics don’t load or when you’re singing with others you hear a delay. Also, I think that the app is being very unfair to non-vip users (they can’t do anything except join someone else’s collabs while vips can open collabs, go live, be admin on lives and have unlimited storage/nice layouts). If you’re not going to give the non-vips more options then why even make the app free?!

Things for consideration
by Mmqqrr on 2020/10/24 12:16
I love Smule!! I have it for more than 5 years ago and it is my stress reliever. I am a aVIP SINce the beginning . I don’t t know what happened with the new version that I can’t no longer choose the filter that I want and also different tunes or background ( IDK THE REAL NAME) when I sing. Also, I used to listen the music I recorded at bedtime because I can hear one song after another , but now it is one by one. I need to change to the other song because it keeps playing the same one over and over again. I really would like to be as before. I would love that you take that in consideration for the next update! Thank you🦋
Disappointing update
by datboy6 on 2020/10/24 08:36
After using this app for 3 years, this update made me officially delete it. The fact that we cant even use our own filters for creativity anymore is sad. Hope they change this back to how it used to be bc this is terrible
PAY TO PLAY
by jshxjababa on 2020/10/24 07:49
This app basically forces you to be VIP to sing any of the songs. Might as well just make it a paid app rather than free to download.
Best game EVERRRRRRRR!!!!!!
by Alexi12345 on 2020/10/24 05:55
OK so first I download this app I thought it would be boring actually it was more fun Dan playing among us and that’s my favorite game and is going to change I mean who doesn’t like to sing you better download this game or else I’ll tell your mama i’m just joking I know it sounds boring but it’s not trust me it’s not like I just can’t leave it I am a VIP and a download it like 8 hours ago Who can leave this game i’m terrible at singing but this app made me a pro download now if you want to be pro in a couple hours
New version is terrible.
by @ConcentrateJake on 2020/10/24 04:17
It automatically enables the original persons filter not allowing you to adjust it. It is impossible for me to keep tempo with the insane reverb settings. I’m not using this app until they revert back to the original.
You guys are the worst
by Noviembre24Xo on 2020/10/24 04:00
You guys better fix this soon, what a trash update, many people would leave the app soon....
Your update
by mihia voinea on 2020/10/24 03:27
Your update on the new sounds are kind of crazy because some people Don’t like that you can’t choose your own sound when they don’t have vip and it’s Annoying
Like not paying that much it’s not worth it
by kousna on 2020/10/24 03:12
It make you have to pay for everything me and my sister tried to sing together but we had to pay
Please bring back the ability to use different FX on a single recording!!
by Qwertyinurface on 2020/10/24 02:39
A large community of smule users used this part of smule and it was very important for our recordings!!! Please consider 💔
Please fix the update
by luke_2038 on 2020/10/24 01:54
This app is supposed to be fun but it’s not, VIP is expensive, you have to sing with the auto tune the OTHER person picks, and we can only do duets. Please fix this
Bad Update - Put it Back!
by LTS79 on 2020/10/23 23:59
This latest update has absolutely ruined the experience on Smule. Shame on you Smule! I won’t be renewing my subscription is this is the new direction.
I’m so disappointed !
by ojerabs on 2020/10/23 22:41
What you guys did with this new version? Do something about this soon!!!!! We need the old one ! Simple but effective ! We don’t want to play with filters! come’on!
Opt out
by Dave5963 on 2020/10/23 16:56
When I saw this app on the App Store, it said free. After I clicked on the link and download it it said it was $10 a week, $40 a month. I don’t know where the free comes in but I’d love to opt up out of this. I really can’t spend $40 a month or something I’m not going to use but maybe once. Please send me a response on how to opt out at PQCEJBA@ YAHOO.COM THANK YOU IN ADVANCE. DAVID SMITH
It doesn’t let me follow people
by Loco74364 on 2020/10/23 14:49
It doesn’t even let me follow people I wait 2 days and it still says I follow to fast and sometimes when I try to make a video it just shows black and you can’t even hear the song.
Update
by Mystic Prower on 2020/10/23 11:20
I love this app. I would give it five stars but I don’t like the new update. I liked it better when we got to choose our own voice filters. A lot of people don’t like this new weird update. Could you possibly change it back and n the next update?
Don’t want the new update...It’s waste..
by Sreeraj.Pillai on 2020/10/23 04:31
The new update is horrible. Please bring us back the old effects. The new effects are utter garbage. Please listen us and give back the old nice settings...
No
by somebodyinneedofhelp on 2020/10/23 01:30
So sorry but no... I have a YouTube channel and I’m trying to endorse my singing because my fans request these things with me the only problem is I’m not getting compensation from YouTube meaning that buying a subscription for $99 a year is out of the question that is insane I tried but this is crazy for the apps amount of glitches, bugs, and inconveniences you’re sure overpricing it I know it doesn’t matter but you can forgot my download never getting this app again
Recent Update = Horrible
by Sully Sobie on 2020/10/23 00:43
I use to love singing on this App but the recent update totally takes away all the creativity from singers. You have no choice in what filter you use when joining and that is so disappointing. You guys missed the mark on this update 😞
the new update is extremely disappointing.
by Makayla_W on 2020/10/23 00:35
i have been on this app for 6 years and i’m honestly disappointed with how the newest update changed everything about the app that made it good and user friendly.
Stop With The Trash Updates
by Kimmiko2997 on 2020/10/22 22:49
I’ve Been Using This App For As Long As I Can Remember. AbLot Had Improved But To Take The FX Away????? Absolutely Terrible Move Please Go Back This Is HORRIBLE.I’d Give 5 Stars But I’m Extremely Disappointed With What You Call An Update This Time Around.
the update is terrible
by the update is so bad i hate it on 2020/10/22 22:45
pls change it back to before all these updates you're making
Antes era perfecta para cantar y hoy con la ultima actualización es una porquería
by Vela1976 on 2020/10/22 20:29
Quitaron todo lo que a la gente la gustaba y pusieron un montón de basura triste pero si no la ponen como estaba antes la mayoría se alejara de esta aplicación
The Piano
by 😒😞😞😞😡😡😡🤨 on 2020/10/22 18:56
I love the sing in this app and I want to sing more but there is A problem every time when it’s my turn to sing there is extra piano that is off key and I can barely hear myself I don’t know what happened to it but I’m not gonna give up on this app soPlease for the people that wants to sing
I used to love smule
by Cool app really works on 2020/10/22 18:53
The new update has completely ruined the app for me. I like being able to choose my own effects when joining a duet. I really dislike that we have to use the ones the other person uses. Please put it back so I can continue using the app.
new update is wack
by mochiserena on 2020/10/22 16:58
the FX was the best part. and then you took it away. 🥱🥱 uninstalling, remind me when they bring the fx back
This new update is awful
by Mrcubanbear on 2020/10/22 15:06
Please fix this update. Not only can you not change the type of sound you want to use during the recording but it’s also more frustrating to change aspects of it. I really don’t wanna cancel my membership but I don’t think I can work well with this update.
.
by L⃟i⃟ on 2020/10/22 14:34
Well the problem is, I haven’t used this app in months and it gets undownloaded and I forgot my pass to my account so if you find my account and know it’s pass please deeply tell me it, I love smule and it’s a really good singing app, I really suggest to play this, because I don’t know if my whole account is saved and I forgot my username so if you find that too tell me my pass and username please! I really like this app and I forgot it and I deeply wanted to play on it, if you do help me, I deeply appreciate that! Thank you!
All the vocal filters....
by WhyISing on 2020/10/22 12:57
With this last update we’ve received overwhelming vocal filters. I loved the simplicity of the app prior to this update now I’m so confused on what to use. It’s even harder now to match up with your duet partner as it’s almost impossible to know what they used. Was hoping they would make it easier to know what filter was used so you both could be on the same level. It’s just too much. Also once you use the filter and sing you used to be able to edit it as you played the song back. Now you do not have that option and the filter sounds completely different when you hear it back. Super dumb.
This app is supposed to be fun... but it’s not...
by MariMineCraft333 on 2020/10/22 09:21
I just wanna sing a song by myself, but I have to get VIP first? That’s just not fair. Plus you only give people one free song and if they don’t choose one they’re stuck not having one until they get VIP to unlock everything. This app is supposed to be fun... It’s not fun if you’re just wasting your money on a subscription.
No more live switch effects 👿
by Havepoints on 2020/10/22 07:49
They took away the BEST part of this app: the LIVE editing and ability to switch between effects. Now you have to start the whole song over and delete it if you don’t like one effect. Unsubbed.
Great app but it needs a way to report scams
by Dcrensh on 2020/10/22 05:23
I’ve been with Smule for 7 years it’s a great app but recently I was contacted by someone who was posing as the prince of Dubai. He definitely tried to get money from me. Smule does not have a way to report this, please take this profile off of your site the user name is “majestray”. He is one of the Nigerian scammers. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been approached, I did block his profile.
Update
by jsalee on 2020/10/22 04:35
The new update is so frustrating. It was so much better when you could change the effects when you were singing but now its stuck on polish when you duet people and it sounds terrible. Go back to the old version.
:(
by Luke.exe on 2020/10/22 04:23
I just want to sing by myself without paying
Trash update
by Korqui P. on 2020/10/22 03:47
At this point it seems like you guys want ppl to leave this app. This new update is terrible. It ruined the apps experience. Maybe listen to what your users want in the app. Why is that such a hard concept? A bunch of ppl started to move over to voisey anyway. So sad.
Update !! Nooooo
by Sc0rpi0555 on 2020/10/22 02:55
Please bring back the old effects these are confusing !
New update is terrible
by marxanderz on 2020/10/22 02:05
The new Styles update has made the app completely unenjoyable for me. I have VIP, but I’m not getting what I initially paid for. I suppose I’ll have to wait out the subscription, but I will not be extending my service if this is how it will be.
The death of Smule
by Noble 29 on 2020/10/22 02:00
I have no idea what the devs were thinking when they developed and rolled out this latest update that TOOK FEATURES AWAY, but boy what a stupid mistake. The app was already steadily declining with activity, and I fear they’ve put the nail in their own coffin. My #1 stress relief app has been ruined and I’m so disappointed.
If you want to sing anything you have to pay
by Yasfit on 2020/10/22 01:31
You can’t sing anything by yourself
Bring back old smule.
by TRINITYTRINITYTRINITY on 2020/10/21 23:48
New update is awful, and you have to pay to hear all of your older songs.
ABOUT FACE!!
by MusicNobody420 on 2020/10/21 21:18
Y’all butchered this app with the new update. I thought I found my happy place back in June when i discovered this app but now I’m so disappointed I don’t know what to do I feel lost l. Just go back to original until you figure this out no more sing style ppppplllllllleeeeeease
Update
by muhfukk on 2020/10/21 20:34
I have used this app for a lot of years now, idk who got their hands on this new update & screwed it all up. But yikes. I don’t like how you can’t change your vocals through the song anymore
PUT IT BACK.
by Opalescent-Tides on 2020/10/21 17:29
This new update is COMPLETE garbage! You took away everyone's ability to choose a sound fx that's comfortable for them and are just now matching the sound settings to whoever began the song, even if you're a VIP and for what? So you could throw in some more flashy video fx? The old audio settings were arguably the one good stable thing about the app and they got changed for no good reason! I've used Smule for over a year now AND vip and I thought the app was pretty ok for the most part but now this makes me feel like it's no longer worth the money I'm paying for it.
Major Privacy invasion
by Krystalsmmns on 2020/10/21 17:24
I will never use this app again. Without any warning or permission, Smule has decided it’s ok for anybody to view and play with anybody’s raw/unedited content. Doesn’t give you an option to opt out or remove your content from another app that I never gave them permission to add me to. I would AVOID at all cost
Very fun.
by softball_player💓 on 2020/10/21 16:24
This is a very fun singing game. but i wish it had a place where you could just save private. now i haven’t been on it very long. and there maybe one. There is another thing too. I get it if you want people to buy the VIP access, but when you want to sing solo. that’s not fun if you have to pay a membership. Welp that all.
Version
by sheebaroohu on 2020/10/21 15:49
This version is too much bad 😟😟😟😟 want old version 🙏
Deleting app after 4 years.
by PlexusMaxim on 2020/10/21 14:41
I loved this app. It was great. They recent update has taken the adjustability away and filters and sounds are canned and terrible. Clearly Smule has lost its way and no longer has a grasp on what users need and want from the product. It was fun while it lasted. If they don’t return the features we had grown to depend on this will be a fatal decision for this app. Signed, You
App no longer receives audio
by Solena2 on 2020/10/21 11:10
I’ve been using this for years, and while I have my complaints, it’s overall the best karaoke app I’ve found. However, for some reason, it no longer picks up audio? I sing at a perfectly reasonable volume, and other apps record it fine so it can’t be on my end, but whenever I try to record a song on this it ends up completely silent. This is a good app, but with this bug, it’s become completely unusable. If it still worked, I’d give it four stars, but...
this ain’t it
by fixthisstupidthing on 2020/10/21 10:18
what the hell did you guys do to the vocal effects?!? mine is stuck on super studio and i never use that one. why would you ruin your own app!?! all you’ve done is make your users angry. i’ve been on and off the app for 5+ years but this is the first time i’m considering leaving for good. the functionality of this app just keeps getting worse and worse. i don’t understand why you hate yourselves so much.
New update
by nightwinghood on 2020/10/21 07:36
This new update is really annoying, I can’t change the voice FX or make my audio louder and quieter, I liked the older versions of this app better.
Why...
by Potato Goddess 🥔🥔🥔 on 2020/10/21 06:39
So the game is good, I just wish it was like how it was before all these updates, you have to pay to actually singing in solo,Duet, and group. I only get to sing one song right now as of unlocking it some how. But you also have to pay to have it for a month or a year and only get one free week trials I don’t like it I get there trying to get money but doing it like this just takes the fun out of the game I use to have it a couple years ago and I loved it but now I don’t like it that much. So to the developers please change it, it would be a much more fun experience with the game. Thank you that’s all
Changed voice editing settings
by #1 Cheesecake on 2020/10/21 02:28
As of 12/28/2018, 5:00pm I’ve tried saving a video song several times. I’ve even deleted and re-recorded, something everyone loves doing(sarcastically) still won’t go through 😠
Stop taking away VIP user control!!
by mishmosh97 on 2020/10/21 02:18
Stay away from this app!!! I am off Smule for 6 or 7 days and I come back and I don’t even recognize it anymore. This is THE WORST change/update I have seen you guys make!!! Individuals used to have the choice of what sound effect (FX) they would like to record in & same goes for video. Now they have made it complicated and have forced whatever the OC has chosen upon the joiners. This isn’t what I’ve paid for. I never record myself in these god awful FX’s. I always record in no FX or just polished and then will tweak my settings myself to blend with the OC’s. This just looks and sounds tacky. This isn’t what I signed up for when I prepaid. Frankly I feel jipped having controls stripped away. You need to listen to your users. It’s fine to make changes, but give people the option on whether they want to allow this to take effect on their joins. Don’t force it upon us. Is anyone at Smule listening to me or is this falling on deaf ears? This was actually one nice thing I looked forward to doing during the pandemic and now you have ruined it. Anyone thinking of getting Smule, don’t!!!!
Nueva actualización 👎🏼
by Norahcruzin on 2020/10/21 01:37
Era mi app favorita hasta la reciente actualización. Ahora todo es más complicado, ya no se pueden hacer joins con diferentes efectos. No me gusta la idea de tener que combinar con otra app para “crear” efectos. Queremos la versión anterior ya o no pagaremos más VIP y nos iremos a otra app de Karaoke menos complicada. 😡👎🏼
Love this app BUT
by Ntynda on 2020/10/21 00:34
The new update is horrendous. I don’t know any of us who are happy with it. Please give up back our previous options. As a VIP member for over 5 years I’m putting my faith in the developers to listen to their users.
The update 😢
by Desire The Ray on 2020/10/21 00:09
I’ve been on this app for sooooo long and pay yearly for it and the newest update changed so many settings and I can’t adjust the fix on my singing as I’m singing any longer and that helped me sing the songs the way I enjoyed singing them. Now I have to wait until after I record the song then play with the fix. I hope it goes back to the other way, otherwise it may be time to cancel my subscription.
Update woes
by Jaldi Karo on 2020/10/20 23:26
The latest update doesn’t allow singers who join a collaboration to select their effect. The invite initiator gets to pick the effects. Period. Maybe smule should change it back to the original version.
Are you purposely trying to kill your app?
by blepstarshipnemal on 2020/10/20 23:04
Because with the mass exodus of the majority paying user base, I don’t see this being relevant for much longer. Shooting yourselves in the foot with this update, really. I was considering getting yearly VIP up until recently, so that’s a shame. Thanks for saving my $50 though, much obliged! I hope the rest of the people on here leave soon, too. At least until you come out of this ridiculous experimental phase and give us back the app we love. 😒
Pls 🙏
by glennie66 on 2020/10/20 22:30
Bring the old smule 😢 thank u 🙏
Worst Update ever
by Angelica..MK on 2020/10/20 22:10
Please how are you kind of obligating certain looks to certain style of voice!? Please Separate the voice editing tools from the audio editing tools!! Everyone has different tastes is not fair
I PAID FOR A YEAR AND CANNOT ACCESS IT
by LilyUnknown on 2020/10/20 22:06
I PAID FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR AND WAS CHARGED FOR A YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION PLUS TWO MORE MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTIONS. I EMAILED AND STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED A REPLY. I HAVE PAID MY MONEY AND I CANNOT ACCESS MY VIP ACCOUNT. I KEEP GETTING PROMPTED TO PAY! I WANT MY YEARLY ACCESS TO MY ACCOUNT. IT IS NOT RIGHT TO TAKE SOMEONE’S MONEY AND NOT EVEN ANSWER THEIR EMAILS.
New update
by jetsoverboston on 2020/10/20 20:56
This new update is terrible! So confusing and the audio sounds terrible with all this reverb and complicated settings. Please change it back!
Smule doesn’t do anything to help Anyone
by Sadjess12345 on 2020/10/20 20:49
Smule doesn’t do anything to help anyone. I you can send a complaint about your followers and following numbers going down ,up and down again. You can tell the truth about followers and the followed, and why you unfollowed the followerd. You even til the truth about why you block both the followers and followed, and till the truth about what happened before and after unfollowed the followed.You even till the truth about what happened before and after you blocked the followers and followed. The only one smule help is the one’s that til lies about you and what they know about you. Against you so your followers and followed numbers going down, up and down again. Why smule does nothing to help anyone. My name is jss _icefireair giving smule a one star ratings and a bad review. #FreeSongTuesday pop up there one minute and gone the next minute never back for scene change to sign the free song Tuesday songs. This smule app raises your hopes and then crush them.
Go back please
by msdhamis on 2020/10/20 20:12
Take us back to the old smule! This new update is awful!!!
For the love of god listen to us
by Ari :(: on 2020/10/20 19:58
The app is good and all but the prices for vip are so bad. Like 99$ for a singing app?!?! Yea cmon son lower them PLEASE. And the fact I can’t unlike smules when I accidentally like them, like I do with mine sometimes, is also extremely inconvenient. Another thing is the 100 song limit? I would appreciate if I could see my old smules without having to pay for it 😐.
New update

Don’t like the new update

I’ve always loved Smule but now in this recent update I hate it soo much!!! Change it back to its previous version please!!!!!!!
Effects Update
by iClintWilson on 2020/10/20 18:31
Please revert back to real-time effects. Seems like a huge step back and I’ve been using since 2013, spending quite a pretty penny on VIP throughout the years. Thanks.

App Changed Junk Now
by MissCrikaJ on 2020/10/20 16:10
Since Smule has decided to completely change what this app is - no longer about recording music, now just a TikTok wannabe - I’m changing my review. If you’re interested in actual music and recording/creating this is not the app for you.
UPDATES!!!
by Elenita S. on 2020/10/20 13:05
The new updates is horrible! Please bring back the old one. The videos and sounds quality is garbage!!! 😡😡😡 stop doing garbages updates!!!
New upgrade is a DOWNGRADE!
by TransparentGal on 2020/10/20 11:55
After 2 years of loving this app and it being my happy place, they shocked us all with an “upgrade”...I would have given a 5 star review, but they have added features and taken the best ones away! They added a feature that randomly changes your voice and tone during the song!! WE NO LONGER get to set our own sound or video settings as previously, and those of us that are VIP are paying!! Instead of going to sing here, I am looking at other options.. @Rose1Daisy go look, you can clearly see the difference in sound quality between those this week verses the pre-October 2020 update!! You will also notice a decrease in my activity on there.. Us faithful users are having the rug pulled out from under our feet! I haven’t heard 1 single positive remark about this update from any one of the thousands of people I know on there!! I won’t be paying for this or for any other in app purchases, including gifting VIP to others, unless they restore it to what it was before... the quality is nothing like it was!!! In fact, it lacks quality now! I signed a petition that grew quickly to 5k users that want it back how it was! And, it’s growing by the minute! No doubt there are other petitions going on too! If you want good reviews, Smule, delete what you did, please! I regret that I paid for a year subscription for what I had, only to log in days later and the best features were taken away!! I never would have paid for it!!! I was excited, as I just made the switch from an Android to an iPhone... Excited to experience the app to its fullest... didn’t have much of a chance and this happened !! HUGE LET-DOWN!! So many talented people, with many followers, are pulling the plug now!!
I don't understand why
by sidneyspade on 2020/10/20 10:10
The upgrade is just awful It took away what I love the most about this app... I was gonna pay again for another year but how I don't know anymore. Bring all filters back pls It took away the freedom to put any filters we want in a song.
The new interface is awful
by Joshlc2003 on 2020/10/20 08:48
The whole sound controls are incredibly inefficient and you have less control than before. It’s ridiculous. Everything now is Reverb this and Reverb that and there’s so much less control. They either BETTER lower the yearly subscription price or change it back because it’s a hassle when you’re trying to record and have no control over the sound until after you’re done. I don’t like it.
Can’t host
by petttttttterpippper on 2020/10/20 06:16
Since the update I can’t host a live. Keep getting disconnected to server.
KILLED the app with the new Update
by Unhappy melody on 2020/10/20 05:11
why would they make a drastic change to app?. instead of making it better they made it worst!!!🤦🏻‍♂️ I will NO longer renew my vip membership.
What the hellllllll
by GregJamison on 2020/10/20 04:19
Omg. Ok u took the flag option out. Fine. But now I can't change filters on different layers ? Now I have to use same filter as the person who opened it. Mr apple buds or less u really think I need the same filter as him to do my parts MY WAY? or if I'm using a High Quality performance mic on an amazing live sound and studio sounds mixer. I been with Smule since not long after the initial android release and Omg it was terrible. But we know why. Let me help you out or me and probably over half your subs are bouncing. Too it back to two updates ago. Bring our cover arts back. Give us our audio control back. And he'll give us flag back too. We really need that. Either get rid of or allow us to turn off the inbox or at least make a group creator the only one who can invite kick rename delete or anything except post in the room. Pleaaeessssss. That inbox is the root of all evil. And also an option to not allow messages from anyone u are not following. Etc. and make it where I can remove people who join a group effort that I start and they ruin it. I want to remove them it's my song please make it happen. And also allow us to remove a layer from our group opens and all individual joins. It's very simple coding. And the block system. Make it work geez. If I block someone THET SHOULD NEVER EVER SEE ME. not only can they still see me they can comment on tracks and chat in a inbox group and see my favorites and my pins. Blocked is. BLocked. I block you u are dead to me. I never ever wanna see you. Ever. Make it happen. All these years I've stayed silent. I've had enough now tho. Also make a report system for bullying etc without re explaining 4 times in email and nothing happens. If I say person a is harassing me then IDC if anyone else complains or not. One female complains with proof is enough. ZERO TOLERANCE. I know two ppl who killed themselves over bullies on this app. Give us the option to make fav lists on profiles public and private. Example I have a group private cypher. I'd like to select group send to .... whatever cypher or group of ppl whom I put in the private grouping number. Like me cypher rap sing. MAle female hook writ free gangsta fast emotional. All different tags I can apply to individuals I wanna invite to certain things. But first and foremost. DONT EVER DO WHAT U DID TO US ON THIS UPDATE ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. PUT ME IN BETA TEST PLEASE. IM A PROFESSIONAL WHOM U PROMISEDTO. VERIFY TWICE NOW AND HAVENT. IM ALSO A TECH GEEK AND SINGER RAPPER PRODUCER AND DJ. I WILL QUICKLY TELL U GOOD OR BAD. These new options. Make them additional options but that's it. I'd like to use the ss like u have it now but when I want to. Never forced. Please hurry or we leaving this app now. This is horrible. I've seen 7 groups disband and leave already. L
EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED
by KrystleMJ on 2020/10/20 03:53
I have been a loyal user and customer since 2017. The most recent update has completely ruined my smule experience. Smule listen to your users. I have 2 paid accounts. I will be cancelling both subscriptions if this update is not reversed.
To the Management of licensing agreements
by keegzmontana11 on 2020/10/20 02:24
I have been a paid subscriber of this app since spring and one thing that is a big issue for myself and many other subscribers is that there are not many Licensing agreements with top artists to be able to access recordings. recently I noticed that the developers Lost the licensing for many of Adele’s songs.Yes they do have a license agreement for Lewis Capaldi which is the reason I joined but since then like I said they’ve lost agreements with many top artists and I am very disappointed. Work harder on the licensing agreements or I will no longer be a paid subscriber unfortunately. I would hate to do that as I really do enjoy this app but for the price I think there should be more licensing agreements for all paid subscribers to enjoy.
Changes more often than Facebook
by trisalu on 2020/10/20 01:37
Where did the spinning earth go? One of the delights of this app was being able to see where in the world your singing partner is. Now that disappeared. Why do hundreds of random men with dummy accounts get to message me indiscriminately? I should be able to put a blanket block on people who aren’t followers/followees. It’s CONSTANT. The new filters are weird and confusing. They make it much harder to control the vocal track. It was GREAT 1.5 years ago. Literally the only thing that needed to change is that we needed the ability to fast forward/ rewind video like you can with the audio-only recordings. Now it’s all messed up. My yearly subscription runs out today and I’m left wondering whether it’s worth it to subscribe again. $60 is a big ask when they decide to pull these kinds of changes. I love singing but come on. This is a case of “it wasn’t broke so why’d you try to fix it?”
Optimizing your performance
by Jonc64 on 2020/10/20 01:00
I have been a Vip member for a while and it seem to me that in every update this app gets worse. For the price I pay for my yearly subscription this app should be a 5 star rate app. Now the problem I am having is that after I sing, the song can not be played. It says it is optimizing my performance, but it never finish optimizing. This is very frustrating.
Where’s our FX?!
by KJC1007 on 2020/10/20 00:45
Please put them back!!!
What have you done?
by Pamelina1 on 2020/10/20 00:41
I’w used this app for about six years now and the updates get worse every time you do one. 1. The gifts are ridiculous. Stupid actually. 2. the new FX; ridiculous 3. The fact that the next song doesn’t play automatically but instead keeps playing the same song until you scroll past it ( I’ve listened to the same join 4 times as I’m typing this🙄).. RIDICULOUS! 4. “internet connection” issues when my internet is fine; still ridiculous. And this is just to name a few. I use Super Studio FX and don’t understand the need for the different options, reverb, colors, etc. what does it all mean anyway? It sounds horrible. And when I finally get the sound that is the most decent (none sound good anymore) it doesn’t save that setting and I have to readjust on the next song. Your updates are horrible and I see more people that I always enjoyed singing with disappearing from the Smule Community. It used to be great but not anymore. You’re going downhill.
Whats up???
by jin_hehe on 2020/10/20 00:08
New update is trash and confusing with the voice filter set up. Will change my review when they make it more accessible again.
Free karaoke
by hippo1011 on 2020/10/19 23:47
It's like a free portable karaoke machine ! The only reason why I didn't give it the full 5 stars is because I wish they made the songs available in MP3 format so we can download it to our playlist Edit 10/19/20 - they added new filter looks ... it’s too complicated ... used to like the previous version of sound filters but now it’s really weird

by 4LF3R on 2020/10/19 23:01
I sing for years on this app and this last update is simply awful, one fx , you can’t change to another fx. I didn’t like at all . The last version was much better 😞
Latest update
by Rosy-Ray26673452 on 2020/10/19 22:29
I don’t like the latest update. They took the options off for the effects for your voice. Its not cool and I hate it. It makes singing songs and having fun hard and annoying. If not fixed I’m removing it as an app in my phone. I’m been on Smule for years and this new update is not it. I rate y’all with 1 star as of now and will continue to do so until the issue is fixed. Thank you, have a nice day.
Changes for the worse
by Adventfire on 2020/10/19 22:12
Smule used to be a great karaoke app, a bit overpriced but it was the best. Now they have been changing it for the worse. You used to have some great and easy to use voice and video filters. What you have now is a hot mess. A lot of long time veterans of the app are now considering leaving because they don’t like like the changes. It’s not a matter of getting used to them either, it’s just bad. Once I would have recommended this app to everyone, now I tell everyone to go elsewhere.
NEW UPDATE IS THE WORST
by Abichuela abii1994 on 2020/10/19 22:05
WHYYYYYYYY???? I've been using this app for years and this last update got me pretty upset. SMULE is not the same, the update before the last one wasn't good enough but a least it was better than this crap.. I REALLY MISS OLD SMULE! You guys think you're improving the app but that's not what you're doing. You guys are making it worse Smule app doesn't deserve not even a Star.
newest update
by amostarkaxakaWo on 2020/10/19 20:18
is there a way to go back to older version??!
New update is very complicated
by Jasmijoy on 2020/10/19 18:12
I hate the new updated version. I have been a VIP member for 3 years and never had any issues with the updates but the recent changes you made on video and sound effects are very disappointing.

How to bankruptcy a company
by Coyote999999 on 2020/10/19 13:56
Don’t waste your money anymore. Smule has ruined the app. Can’t leave well enough alone!! If you want to add features cool but they took away everything good about it. I will not be renewing my subscription and find something that works. I would give this latest update negative stars if I could. Ridiculous 🙄🙄
Unfortunate Updates
by FedUp Douglas on 2020/10/19 13:25
I have been using this app for years and have enjoyed it for the most part. It has been a good way to connect with people from all over the world and be able to have a sense of expression through music without having to leave the house. I think those years there has been many updates suppose to fix this and fix that. Last year I was charged twice for a yearly renewal emailed them multiple times only to not hear anything back in regards to the excess pay they had taken illegally may I add as I only have one account. Update to when am OC closes you can see who joins you when it expires. That was a nice idea and they have taken that away now and the only way to find it is to scroll through your page to find the joins only to sometimes be able to see who joined or who didn’t. Went from taking live jam away to giving it back without a full video option unless a part of a group and leaving the camera button in the bright overly exposed globe they have set us in. To in the groups we cannot even change the camera around or invite people by typing their name you have to go through the list by scrolling to find someone and causes people to miss jamming with each other. And now a new update, it is nice that you all are trying to make changes but it is now even more difficult to even wanna join someone as the effects you have to have the same one as the other person and it honestly sounds ridiculous to me personally I’m having a hard time to want to even sing now. We are limited to 500 favorites. How about updating that to say 1000 or beyond. If you wanna update fine but the customers who are paying for the service to use even ones like me who got charged twice for a one year subscription ask us or let it be to where we have sometype of notifications or video sent by Smule on the new updates and how to use them. This has been overall a good app but the constant change is too much. There is an old saying “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” take that into consideration. Oh and also you want people to create stickers for you all to charge for the use of someone’s artwork? Come on y’all are really hustling aintcha?
Terrible update
by sarahbethbigmad on 2020/10/19 12:26
The New Smule Styles update is less functional and more confusing... we can't switch fx and we have to download a different app now? Also the settings have been adjust and there is SO much reverb it sounds ridiculous. This is the opposite of what VIP users want. More updates that favor video and duets and less creativity and ease of use for group and self collabs. Feels like regular long-time users who have formed a community on this app are being ignored once again. Canceled by subscription. Fix this situation, smule.
This app is awsome but people are being mean…
by FOOD_FOOD on 2020/10/19 12:13
This app is on my phone and tablet it’s truly amazing I wish I have it on my pc tho but I’m happy I have it on my tablet and phone! But…why are people calling this a waste of money it’s free for me also people are saying this USED to be great but it is great but someone does like it that’s good but I like it to
Wish I could sing older songs
by a casual pedestrian on 2018/12/04 02:24
I have been on this app for so many years, back to when I remember watching a million ads to be able to accumulate enough credits to purchase songs. I had built up quite a collection before things changed. I don’t mind the current system all that much, but there is one particular flaw that has always disappointed me more than others. I am a huge broadway fan, and as much as I love the new musicals that are popular right now, I also have a lot of favorites that maybe aren’t so current and popular. There are songs on the app, but nobody is singing them. I don’t have the type of money to be able to afford a VIP subscription, so with nobody making duets there is no way that I’m able to sing the songs that I want. What I’m suggesting is that for songs that maybe don’t get a ton of attention on the app, or at least the ones that are uploaded by Smule and not by users, there might be a way to make a permanent duet track, so that when people want to go back to older songs and sing them, they are able to even if they don’t have a VIP membership like me. Thank you for your time and possibly your consideration. This is mostly just my sadness over the fact that I’m not able to sing all the Songs For a New World songs that I want, but oh well.
It’s amazing but needs tune ups
by KawaiiJellyJelly on 2019/07/22 11:13
I think this app is amazing. I am able to upload any song I want into the songbook for free and I can sing it anytime I want. I think that feature is amazing. I have been a fan of kpop for a few years and I’ve been able to express my love for this music genre through this app and I’ve made many singing buddies through live jams. The app itself is great. One thing that is an issue though, is that there is not a log out option. If you want to log out of one of your accounts you can’t. You have to delete the app and then reinstall and log in. I feel this is very inconvenient for people who have more than one account. Personally, I have gathered groups of people and created online cover groups and I have one account that is use for those group uploads and it’s basically like and online entertainment account but it’s inconvenient that there is not a log out button/option because I have to delete and reinstall each time I want to switch from my personal account to my other account. Also I think it’s a rip off that when you purchase VIP on one type of device, you don’t have VIP on another type of device. It’s very inconvenient. Also... stream ATEEZ, it will change your life and also. Watch “Victory Song” by Stray Kids and pay attention to the blonde dude in the performance video. Thank you for your time. :)
Please remove the 100 video rule.
by Nadiawaly123 on 2018/11/10 13:57
I love this app! I make funny singing videos and I never had a problem with this app! I love how you can communicate with people that have the same interest in singing! This app is really great but the only problem is the limitations for the none V.I.P members. I get that they need to make money somehow but the other limitations such as not being able to start your own duets or solos were working just fine. I don’t mean to disrespect the creators in anyway I just really would appreciate if the creators would at least let us make as much videos as we want without being limited. I never really was a fan of the limitations on this app like not being able to sing some songs if you are not a V.I.P but I know that they need to make money somehow so I never really questioned it but I feel like it’s just not that fair that we can’t make more than 100 videos if we are not a V.I.P. Again I don’t mean in anyway to disrespect the creators and I really love this app and the hard work they put in creating it but I would really appreciate that when the new updates come out that you guys can take off the 100 video limitation for the non V.I.P members. Thanks so much, I absolutely love this app otherwise!!! 👌
Overjoyed
by babydoll0401 on 2020/09/16 12:41
I have been on Smule now for over 3 years and I wouldn't trade it for the world! When I started, I thought I would just sing and maybe join some people who could sing....but it is way more than that. The app itself is absolutely amazing. It has a huge library of songs and numerous versions and genres of the songs as well as options to sing audio or if you are like me and love the camera....you can video yourself. And there are so many other things that I could tell you but there is something else that is more important to me. The Community. Within the community, there are "Groups". These groups are people that have the same taste in music get together and chat, have challenges, support your recordings, join your songs, etc. I have met some that I honestly call my family. They are always there for me when I need to talk or need advice not only about singing but about life. You also have Smule members who put together competitios. Those are really fun! All in All, I recommend this app with all my heart and soul! Thank you Smule for helping me find my happy place. And to all my family, friends, and followers...I sure do love you guys!! God bless and stay safe! Babydoll0401
Good overall, but I️ do have complaints

I do like the app and community. I love to sing and I️ love the kind and positive feedback that I️ get. However, I️ do have my issues with the app. The first is the VIP membership fee. It is quite expensive and I️ wish there was a way to reduce the price. I do enjoy the app, but it is a lot to pay for what it is. My next thing is that I️ wish the app developers would upload a wider variety of genres of music. I really enjoy various types of alternative music like punk rock and post-hardcore for example, but there are few songs that I️ can sing of those genres because a lot of the uploads for them are community uploads with the vocal track still present. It’s also difficult to find uploads for some less popular musical theatre uploads. My final complaint is the messages that I️ get. I don’t know if the app has any control of this, but I️ keep getting messages from middle aged men (I️’m 18, and I️ started getting them when I️ was still underaged). They mostly message in similar formats and often have similar stories. At first I️ thought that maybe they were scammers but they’ve never asked me for money. Are they bots? I really don’t understand what their deal is, who/what they are, or what they want and would appreciate if the app would look into this.
Just listen to us for once!

I'm 17-years-old and have been using Smule since I was 10-years-old. I remember the days when Smule was called Sing!Karaoke and non-VIP members could watch videos and earn credits to open songs. Since then, things have changed quite a bit, and the changes were originally pretty good and were executed pretty well. I used to be excited when the app would come out with a new update . . . but now I dread it. For the past 3 pr 4 years every update that you guys have put out has been garbage. You continuously supply us with things we didn't ask for and ignore our complaints. There are very simple things that we want: (1) A logout button or way to change between multiple accounts without having to delete and redownload the app. (2) The ability to unlike collabs. (3) The ability to change the cover art on songs. (4) GIVES US THE OLD FXs BACK! THE NEW SYSTEM IS HORRIBLE! (5) You actually listening to us for a change. You claim that you "hear us", but it's obvious that you don't because we still haven't received anything that we've asked for. There has been outrage over your latest update and I know a multitude of people who are planning to move on to another platform, so I suggest you process this review carefully because everything I listed is not only what I want, but it's what a large majority of the Smule Community have been fighting for for years now.
This app used to be great!

I really used to enjoy using this app. SMULE had so much potential. I would try songs often, but rarely posted them to my profile. I wish I would have done that more often. But the app was fun even for someone just looking to rehearse songs. I don’t have any complaints about the company trying to make money, but I think they have stifled their community growth by making it a service, and such an expensive service. Wow! That’s a crazy amount of money to ask someone to spend each year just to sing remade/covered sometimes bad quality vocal removed songs. And they now LOCK features like sing solo, or even start a duet behind the paywall. Personally if you want a great community of users that are always making new content for your big paying customers to work with, you would allow at least so many free solo tracks and duet starts per account per month without having to pay $99 per year to use a phone app. I really miss the days of a one time purchase, I get that this is something that needs updates and moderation to an extent, but not everything is a service and deserves rates competitive with Netflix and Disney+. But that’s just the opinion of someone that used to think that SMULE was a really promising app before all of the cool features were removed and placed behind a monthly fee.
Good app, but some things to improve...
by Shebeb idnidnodnisnosb on 2019/12/05 21:02
First of all, I just wanna say that Smule is the best singing karaoke app in the AppStore. I’ve meet tons of people with the same interests and we talk, so getting to meet new people is a plus. I love the option to submit songs to the song book just incase they don’t have it. The only flaws I really have is some bugs and no logout feature. I sometimes help my friends when they go on hiatus, so I need to log into their account right? The only way I can do that is to delete the app and relogin, which is a real pain. Let’s say I want to start a new profile and switch between the two, it’s so annoying to do it though because there is no logout feature. Also in the vip customize your own profile (which I have) for the color choices, you should be able to put your own color. Let’s say you have a baby pink profile theme going on, yet there is no option for pink. So the main things I really want Smule to add is logout feature and choose your own color for vip customization option. Once again I’m not bashing the app, I’m just saying some things they could add to improve the app and make it better.
I love this app but unfortunately...
by SoulSurferBlack on 2018/10/10 02:23
The VIP purchase got highly out of line... (when I first got this it didn’t have to put vip in there so I was happy without it) Even though I’m able to sing with other people, the part of the problem is “I don’t think I want to sing any of these songs with them, Is there anything else I would try out?” I’ll admit that’s how I am. Because when I get invited to a duet it’s those songs, I probably don’t even know or that it’s not my favorite. Then after I’ve gone threw those I try to sing either solo or maybe put in a duet, but apparently after the time’s has changed, it’s getting a little more boring and annoying now while not having VIP... I still have it but I hardly ever use it now because of it. I’m sorry people who works in this app but you’ve actually pretty much ruined this over trying getting more money... You probably need it for whatever kinda of reasons but... I’m sorry to say but your being... well... “Extremely Spoiled”... And even though I love the app... I’m slowly starting to feel like deleting this not “just” because of how expensive it is... but because I can’t pick what I want to try out anymore either. I love this, but it’s already taking up a lot of space on my device. So this is my result
I love this App not so much now
by buddyblue on 2017/11/08 14:47
I love to sing alone and with another person! I find it relaxing! I’m changing that review I just auto renewed through iTunes my VIP Subscription. Now for the second time the VIP status is gone! I have sent many e mails no answer! The last time they fixed it and said I should renew through them no way! I called Apple support and they said that there should be no reason why I would have to renew through Smule! ITUNES will renew my money within 2 months. When this happened before they told me that there was something wrong and I really didn’t understand. I’m hoping they help me strange thing is I have had this App since 2014 with no problem what happened SMULE FIX IT. JUST BEWARE NEVER GO THROUGH SMULE TO PAY pay through iTunes because they are very good about giving refunds and they don’t take money out when they aren’t supposed Too not sneaky! I am wondering if they take the VIP status away so you go through them that would be terrible! BEWARE PEOPLE! HAS THIS HAPPENED TO ANYONE ELSE? JUST WONDERING! ITS BEEN TWO DAYS AND NO ANSWER SIX EMAILS LATER. NOT HAPPY AT ALL. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS COMPANY NOT GETTING BACK TO ITS COSTUMERS. FROM AN ANGRY COSTUMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
a waste of money
by a former smule user on 2020/10/15 20:30
when i first got this app around 2018 the app was amazing, fun, and super addictive because it was a place where you can sing without being judged so much. but the 2020 updates are disgusting, first of all wheres the cover art? no one on smule cares where people live around the world, we want to see our cover art. us smulers take hours to make nice cover art so our group collabs look aesthetically pleasing, so that people can have a nice feel as they listen to the song, but it’s gone and all that editing was wasted for nothing. and next is fx, when it comes to a group collab people like using different fX because it makes the song sound so much better, but to only have ONE? that’s bulls*it, people spend so much time on smule recording and using different fX so people sound decent enough, and the new update gives you one fX? what a shame, smulers are leaving everyday because of these updates and i’m glad they are because this app is just trash now. we practically pay money so we can get a good app in return, but instead you smule creators are just eating our money over the most stupidest app ever. i’m no longer using this app until you bring cover art back and all the FX back to how it was. and to anyone reading this, this app is a waste of money, practically robbing you. play it safe and DONT buy VIP it’s for the best.
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Great singing app!
by BlackBeltShell on 2019/07/22 07:23
Downloaded this app a couple of years ago and never used it..it was brought to my attention again by a friend last year... Been singing pretty consistently for 15 months now and having a LOT of fun! I’ve met some amazing people with amazing talent! I’ve found my voice again after not singing for many years all thanks to this app! For those that are whining about not being able to sing solos because you aren’t VIP...many VIP singers will record a song and not sing it and put SOLO on it just for those that aren’t VIP, so you can sing too. Go look...they are out there! My advice to the developers...get rid of auto tune it really makes people that can’t sing..sound even worse! Now about the gifts...really? Those are pointless and juvenile and you only offer 1 free one! Instead, perhaps you can add more options to the ❤️ button..something similar to emojis/emoticons..maybe even make them animated. Last...make it so we can send more than 5 invites when we send out our recordings to our friends/groups. All in all a great app to sing on, keep up the good work!

I love this app because I love to sing and it’s super good you can sing with people You can sing like all your favorite songs it is a really good app if you love to sing and stuff like I do and it’s just a lot of fun and like you can just do so much stuff with that you can do popular songs you can do like all types different songs you can sing like songs from around the world like it’s just super cool I don’t know like everything about this but I had it before and I thought is really cool and really fun you guys really need to get this right because I did all stars because it’s a really good app it’s really fun I still need to look into it more because I didn’t look into it all of it but it’s like a really really good fine and if you love to sing like I said this is good for you and you can like practice is it stings are the lyrics and yeah so just give this a bunch of stars you don’t like that’s OK it’s your opinion but yeah I think it’s a really good app so make sure you get is a big thumbs up and you like it sorry didn’t spell everything right I’m trying to say this is a really good app🦄🦄....
I like it but...
by heaven_1267🎧 on 2018/09/10 04:49
I used sing since 2012 and I love but with the recent updates I haven’t really like the app as much... First in the past used to be able to watch a Videos to get credits to buy songs or so sometimes they would automatically give you credits on your profile as soon as you login but now you have to be a VIP just to get songs seriously...Second you used to be able to view all your videos from your first everyone to your most recent now you have to be a VIP just to view any of your older posts after two years ago like wow...Third you used to be able to choose if you want to do a solo duet or group song if you don’t have enough credits for the song you got to earn more but now just to be able to do a solo duet or group creation for people to join you also have to be VIP just wow.. it’s really upsetting because some people can’t give VIP i used this app for a long time now I’m 13 even if I asked my mom to buy VIP on this app I know she wouldn’t and I know plenty of people are probably upset over the new updates because now you just have to buy vip for stuff like
Great, but ADD BLUETOOTH MIC SUPPORT!!
by UnknownPersõn101 on 2020/04/29 01:24
Hiya! I’ve been using this app for like six years now. I use it on and off, but when I do use it it is very easy to sing songs and record them and all that technical jazz. A lot of people are now relying on wireless, bluetooth-enabled technology to get through their days. I think it would be awesome to include support for bluetooth microphones! I have wireless, bluetooth earbuds, and when I want to sing a song I am unable to do so without annoying feedback. The app doesn’t even detect that I have earbuds at all. It just says “headphones recommended” and plays the music through my phone speaker. I could just go out and buy a pair of wired headphones, but with the ongoing pandemic and the financial troubles I’m sure we’re all dealing with, it’s kind of hard to do that. I have no idea how all that technological stuff works, but I would certainly enjoy this addition to the app. Especially now, since I’m literally trapped in my house 24/7. I also remember when you could earn coins to unlock solo songs, and think maybe that would be nice to add back (maybe just for certain songs). I give three stars because of my current inability to enjoy the app :( PLEASE FIX THIS!!! ❤️
NEVER download this app. Here’s why:
by Arsenic Reviews on 2019/06/14 23:56
I had Smule OG. It was so fun and I could just sing my heart out for FREE. You might see ads of great singers singing songs you probably like. Download it for free, sing one song, then overpay to even sing another. Honestly, I don’t have any type of social media and I don’t want to. This is just a sly form of social media where you post and sing along with others. ‘Others’ as in random people. You also have to sign up with a Facebook account, phone, or email. Obviously, as I already stated, I don’t have social media so Facebook was out. I didn’t want the developers to call me for something so I went along with email and I already regret it. This app is pointless. I hate it. Also, you can’t sing without signing up. Also, this app does NOT help you with your vocals or help you sing better. For my first song, just to prove it, I did it in a weird voice and sometimes just whispered and I got the highest score and a ‘Bravo! Good job!’ This game is rigged. Don’t waste money on it. I was excited, though, because it had songs I like but I had to pay to sing more. I deleted the app immediately after that. If you read this, DON’T BUY THIS APP. I’m literally reviewing after I delete the app. Developers, thanks for making a scam. Much appreciated. Thank you for your time.
Great app, but have some flaws...
by Emma cute girl on 2020/04/06 22:17
This app is great but I don’t like one of the rules. It’s the 100 recordings rule. If you aren’t subscribed or a VIP, you can’t have more that’s 100 recordings. I love this app. I’m a person that likes to always try to improve on what I like doing and this is a great app to improve your singing voice by singing when you have time. I am in love with music, especially K-Pop. This is also a great app to listen to music. I would be happy if Smule would change that rule and let people without the subscription to be able to sing however many songs they want and keep them on their profile. If people want to sing more, but the already have 100 recordings, and don’t want a subscription, what would they do? Do you think that they would just not sing anymore? If someone wants to do something and another thing is blocking them from doing what they want, most people will try. Basically, I think Smule shouldn’t have the 100 recording limit to people that don’t have a subscription. I think that Smule should take that rule off.
Can’t Load nor Listen to songs
by Donna Hubler on 2020/09/10 04:19
I have had this app for two years with a break in between. First time the app would not load and count followers, I would get messages I had new followers but they would never be added. (So could not invite them to sing with me) I researched this on their site and they simply said it doesn’t matter your number of followers just sing and have fun. Obviously something they didn’t care to investigate nor fix. When signed up again, seems first problem I mentioned was fixed, but I have had nothing but problems loading invites to sing (I get error messages or will simply change screens) and then listening to songs I have done in the past, they WILL NOT LOAD and I have emailed support innumerable times with no resolution. I am told to send them a video? How I have asked to accomplish this with no response. I can use all of the other hundred or so apps installed on my phone along with other singing apps but CANNOT use this one. I have asked several times for my money back since I CAANOT GET THIS APP TO WORK but they ignore me. They simply don’t care. So if you have a problem don’t expect any help. I CANNOT use this app but they can use my money. Been going on since June so have wasted enough time.
Big fan with small issues
by TheHailstorm on 2019/07/21 20:55
I’ve been using this app for a little over 2 years now and it has become one of my favorite things. Especially because I’m a theater kid and there are TONS of theater songs and people make groups for them and it’s AMAZING. But I only give it 4 stars because it has a lot of stupid updates, for example, the newly installed gifts that are pointless, you need VIP or a lot of VIP friends to do a lot of things in this app, and sometimes the notifications just stop working even though they are on in the app and device settings. Also it took them years to get Bluetooth enabled, and we’ve been asking for the ability to make a playlist for like a year now and it still hasn’t been created, but useless gifts are there! I know half of that sounded really negative but I honestly do love this app. It’s really easy to use and it’s great to talk to other people who like the same things I do. Plus it is LITERALLY GLOBAL so there is literally ALL KINDS OF MUSIC. I don’t see why anyone who loves singing would dislike the app.
Stop 🛑
by 100%MeMyself&I on 2018/09/19 18:37
PLEASE Stop storing sooo much junk on my phone! For an app that you can’t even open if you’re not online you sure store a lot on my phone! I deleted this app and then re-downloaded it, and as soon as I logged into my account it stored an extra 1.7 gb of data!!! I love singing and I have friends who use this app so I don’t want to delete it, but my phone has limited space! Also how is it possible that people can afford $8 A WEEK for VIP??? I know for sure that I can’t! Also please stop shortchanging you’re non-VIPs so much! I read somewhere within the app (I don’t remember where) that non-VIPs have 100+ songs to choose from otherwise they can join others or become a VIP. Well, I have only found about 5 songs that I can sing or open as invites (and trust me I have looked very very hard)!!! The other 95+ must either not exist or are in a different language! And another thing: seriously!?!?!? I have to be a VIP to listen to MY OWN RECORDINGS!?!?!?!?!?! I wouldn’t mind if others couldn’t listen to them but me!?!?!?! Really!?!?!?! Sure I can listen to a few of them but the more I sing the less I can listen to! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS APP UNLESS YOU REALLY LOVE TO SING, CAN AFFORD TO PAY $8 A WEEK (which obviously I cannot), OR REALLY DON’T MIND GETTING SHORT CHANGED!!!
Brilliant Platform
by ameliAmuseD on 2018/12/22 01:06
As an artist of many mediums and a founder of two organizations to support creativity as well as connect the muses with the creators and inspire others, I am well versed in apps made for profit VS option of ‘prophecy’ I applaud Smule for their artistic centered apps, though Sing! Karaoke is my favorite. The options are magnificent for those interested in singing for sake of joy thru live streaming free-styles with own instruments, Lyrics, choreography, ect. I didn’t sing Karaoke before this came out. Now I have connected with talented and kind people worldwide utilizing our voices, remembering to speak up and be the verbs we are, instead of the nouns we are told to be. Excellently thought out, fantastically well cared for, and admired much. I recommend Smule Sing! Karaoke to all, and thank the developers for keeping in contact the connection of artists, aware of stream. When you grouped your magic guitar app with Sing! years ago I knew this was not made to sell anything but consciously promote worth in the arts. Ty! ~ meliamuse
Has gotten so bad!!
by Rebecca Withey on 2020/10/16 15:10
I HATE THIS FEEAKING UPDATE!!! You ruined everything I love about this app! This app has gotten so bad!!! The newest update is crap!!!! You took away all audio mixing capabilities forcing users to use a single effect after years of being able to stack multiple layers for group songs?! That is just cruel!! A group of harmonizers and I were in the middle of doing a complex group song and this update completely crapped all over the song and destroyed days of work. I don’t want all of these stupid fancy filters! WHY ARENT YOU LIST RING TO YOUR USERS WHO PAY FOR THIS FREAKING APP??? I want to just see my friends face-to-face, sing and have a good audio choices and video choices separately, have freaking live jams the way that they used to be so we could just sing publicly with people and meet people from around the world, I don’t need gifts, I don’t need super filters, I don’t need Snapchat anymore like stuff. If I wanted to do something like this I would just as well just go over to TikTok! I am starting to hate this! I have made amazing friends on Smule and a lot of us are trying to find another app, like BandLab. Those new to Smule will never know how wonderful this app used to be. This company does NOT care about its user base.
Smule review
by gabMV11 on 2019/12/23 04:30
I am going to be open and honest with you guys. So I got the app and for a little while I could sing for free, then after some time I got back on the app and I realized that I could not sing for free. 😞😒 and on top of that the only way you can sing on it is if you go to invite and sing with some Random person you don’t even know. I am not saying the app is bad, but there are some thing that I don’t like about the app. For the parents if you did not know this the app is considered a social media. I mean it just ruins it for the people who really want to use the app and cant because they can’t pay or sing with some Random person you don’t even know. I have tried some other apps just like this for example it was something like the voice that I got and I don’t even think I got to sing on it cause it wants me to pay. Once again the app can by fun until you have to pay and do all these things that some people can’t. I wanna say that you have to pay for the VIP. If you guys know some we that you can prevent these things from happening please let me know,😊 but this is just the experience I’ve had with the app. I hope these things like having to pay after some time can be changed. 🙂
Where is the talent at?
by Mysterynite77 on 2019/03/17 17:53
I am a singer when I got this app I was shocked that a lot of vip members can’t carry a tune way off but yet their video has million of views comments they are wonderful but yet ones commenting are worse singers then them people this isn’t a singing app it’s a buy your way to the rank and level singing app I dropped it about a year ago even when I didn’t use it they charged me not happy at all with it I never want to ever use it again only way I would is if I wanted to download one of my songs I recorded just horrible people who are tone deaf who lie to others say they could go on American idol even those so called groups wanted me to join and you have to get invited to be super talentive I heard some of them I thought no way cause I know what singing is they ain’t got it I never did except their invite cause they knew I could sing but how ever it floats your boat if you wanna spend money on something to drain your bank account go for it not me🤦🏻‍♀️
how bad the background is for some people
by fun game word cookie on 2018/07/10 01:32
some people get bad backgrounds beacuse they have noises bothering them when they are singing. And when that happens people dont want to listen to that recording that has bad noises in the background. I dont understand why people just dont go in quiter places like were people wont bother you or talk to you in your singings, plus that is the worst part about the singings. The annoyinces are bad they can get worser sometimes. This singing app is good to use but, those annoying people in your background make people hate your singings and just by singing people want to annoy you and your veiwers by that i mean your viewers will get annoyed by watching your video. When people dont like your videos its not by your tone of voice its just beacuse your background was a little too anoying and too loud. When people annoy you they sometimes may be louder than your singing. When people annoy you in your backgrounds ur singing becomes quiter than your usal singing tone of voice.
Great, but what happened to landscape mode?
by kre410 on 2018/03/23 22:52
This last update took away the ability to rotate my iPad. The reason it’s important is the camera. If I want to do a video I have to prop on pillows and the charger port is on the bottom and there’s a cord problem.....cord, chord...pun. Ok so please bring it back. My iPad Pro is designed to prop in landscape mode. On the positive and there are many...there is no song too underground or obscure. Someone has uploaded it. If I can fine the original Venus In Furs by Velvet Underground, you can find most anything unless it’s x-rated. The quality is spot on and no special headset needed. This works perfectly with you apple headset. It’s fun and the community is very forgiving and kind. Oh sure, you have some Divas and clubs who judge...but they are nobody and I simply block anyone who is rude or critiques me. After all, this is karaoke and its for fun. We aren’t looking for the next big thing here. Anyway, it’s very fun and hours go by quickly. And that’s what’s important . Fun.
Great Therapy
by Pzammy on 2017/09/21 23:50
This is one of the best forms of therapy I have ever found would you like to sing in anyway this is it. I'm 51 and sing-along I met some really cool people some not so cool people but it's anywhere you go or anything you just got to pick them out right have a good time sing with people all over the world don't judge other people sing with them and have fun everyone has their own style such a different variety of music you don't have to pay if you don't want to if you don't want to pay to sing a lot to do with us if you want to pay a little bit a month or a yearly feethat would be your choice and you can make that. Pick out your own song sing solos or get some people to join you I love it so glad that my daughter him tell me about this website I'll talk to people about it work we have a good time with it so can you release in life I need some therapy this just may be your answer please make sure you wear your headphones have a blessed day
I freaking love 💗 this app
by DA_POTATO🥔 on 2019/08/13 16:00
So I’ve been on this app for almost two years and this art is amazing! Everyone I’ve sang with are super nice to me. I’m only eleven and I have so many amazing followers and back when I was a beginner with Smule all my followers were and still are VIPs. I’ve had so much fun. To me Smule is my escape from reality. It’s an amazing program with awesome people with incredible talent. It’s really a place where I can be myself and shine while having fun in the process. The thing with the VIP that everyone else complains about is actually not as bad as they make it out to be. There are people who are nice enough to make solos for those who aren’t vip. And honestly I have more fun singing with other people rather than myself. I love Smule and I hope others can find there talent and once they do show others what your voice is capable of. Just remember every voice is beautiful in their own special one of a kind unique way. Keep singin’ - Love jlrosebud
Mildly inconvenienced
by _PaigeK_ on 2019/09/08 04:14
So Smule is a daily activity for me. It’s part of the routine now and I’ve been on the same account for four years. I’ve never had an urge to leave a review until now and it’s simply to shed light on a recent update to the app. The new addition of “gifts” is a complete redundancy to the already-present options to love or comment on an OC and, frankly, the addition of gifts next to these two choices is annoying to look at as well as annoying to watch as the gifts given cycle through as you’re listening to an OC. This new update has no feasible use and clutters the design of the app as well as the ease of use. What’s the point of a “gift”? It means nothing to me as the receiver of one, and I don’t think I would ever send one to another user. Overall, I still use Smule and this doesn't deter my love for the platform in any substantial way, it’s an incredible app! I just wanted to express my confusion and annoyance with a new feature in some way, so that solution was writing a review.
Fun app but..
by Jessmyst on 2017/10/16 03:18
The app itself is a fun concept and I do enjoy it. However, for an app that makes you subscribe for many features, they seem to care very little about being easy to use for everyone. As an iPhone 7 user, there is of course no headphone jack, making wired headphones annoying to deal with since it’s so easy to loose the adapters. Anyone who uses the app a lot knows that headphones make for much better quality recordings. Well, for whatever reason, the app makes it so if you use Bluetooth headphones; they disconnect when you go to record. This has been an issue for a while and I’ve seen many complaints, but with each update they make, they fail to fix that. I expect more from an app that forces you to pay for many of the features than ignoring the complaints of users. I’ll continue to use it because it is quite fun for passing time, but I unsubscribed to it and do not plan to pay for it again until they fix that issue. It’s such a simple feature to include and they continue to ignore the needs of the customers
Great App! Just dropping an opinion.
by Samaria Taylor 😊 on 2020/03/27 00:06
I enjoy this app and enjoy singing on it as well. It’s pretty cool to be able to sing with people across the world and share my love of singing with others. I think the only thing that I would say that bothers me is that in my activity tab, I have songs from accounts “verified” on the app such as celebrities whom I never followed, nor am I interested in seeing their content. I think it would be much easier and more organized for my activity tab if you all could ask who we would like to follow in terms of verified accounts. That way, my activity doesn’t get clogged up with things that aren’t my taste. I just don’t care for constantly scrolling through my activity to find the people whom I actually follow instead of these artists whom I didn’t. I’m not sure if this bothers anyone else, and I’m also not sure why the app is set up this way, but I figured why not let them know. You’re all doing great!
Amazing App
by Mallardman76 on 2019/08/08 19:45
I love This app so much! Except I hate the new update! Why can only VIPs do live Jams now😡😡😡 I did lie Jams everyday and now all of my followers and friends are so disappointed in this app! Why would u do that Smule, why? This app was amazing for many reasons but this is just utterly stupid! I was so upset at first I almost deleted the app! I understand you’re just trying to get the profit of people becoming VIPs but this just crossed the line! I loved live jamming with my friends and hearing different voices all around the world but this update was terrible I am very sad that u did this and I would really like u to change that again! Until Smule updates back to regular I would absolutely NOT recommend this!!!! Very bad idea! This app actually gave the non VIPs a chance to have the same options as VIPs! Now it’s just another one of those apps that u only have one option VIP or nothing! Please update back to regular 😡 Thanks - A Very Unhappy Girl 🙁🙁🙁
The VIP
by Cheyenn0 on 2019/11/09 16:38
I absolutely love having this app. But the reason I gave it 3 stars is all because of the VIP. There are so many songs that I would like to sing, but I cannot since no one else sings the songs so I cannot duet with them. So I would recommend that some of the less known songs would be free and then any of the more popular ones the user would have to duet. And the Livestreams when I first got the app anyone could do them, But now with the VIP I cannot do a livestream anymore which I liked joining more people who were my age that I could sing along with, now the VIP is mainly grown-ups so I cannot join any. So I would just ask that the VIP lifestream would be taken down so anybody can livestream again and that some of the songs anyone could do it with them and not have to have the VIP for not just artist sing-alongs. This is just a recommendation but I hope that it would possibly help some of the users of the app and get you some better ratings. Sorry about this lengthy review. Just want to address some issues that I have at the app.
Good, if you like being scammed
by #marvelisawesome on 2019/10/21 16:31
I just got this app and it was fun at first,but all of that VIP stuff just annoys me. Honestly, who wants to pay 9 bucks a month for a video game? And who can afford that also? I mean like, people already pay like 10 bucks a month for PHONE SERVICE, witch is WAY better than a video game. Also, because I am not VIP, I cannot record my own videos, I have to do them with a STRANGER, and not everyone has a good voice. Also, (this is not my iPhone) I am not allowed to be on social media, so when I play Smule, I can’t post, but after I make a video, it post it automatically! 😡 for example, I did a video with Lucas Graham, and it was ok I guess, but the next day, I went on the app, and my video was loved by a stranger! So it posted it automatically! And I’m not allowed to post! So now I have to delete my videos right away, or else it will post them. I find not being able to make my own videos because I’m not VIP obnoxious. I mean, I know they got to make money somehow , but that’s just unfair. So get this app if you don’t mind being scammed. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
This App is Crap!
by Via2096 on 2018/08/19 19:42
I wanted to check this app out, because I saw lots of ads for it on Smule’s Magic Piano app. I love to sing, so I thought it would be fun. But it’ll be a cold day in heck before I sing with some stranger on the other side of the world. You need VIP to sing by yourself? That is ABSURD! PREPOSTEROUS! You shouldn’t have to pay to sing! All of this VIP crap... I am sick of it. Every app there is now, it seems like you have to pay for everything in a FREE app! We are all “Very Important People”. We all make a difference in this world. We are all special and unique. I’m sure there are talented people like myself who find it ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS that you should have to pay that much money to use a FREE app! Singing is my life, and you are OBVIOUSLY too incompetent to provide an app worthy of someone as talented as me. Considering that I AM competent enough to know that it is RIDICULOUS to charge that much money to use the app. You might as well get rid of VIP and make the app A Billion dollars! This app has WAY too many 5 star reviews! There must be lots of incompetent people in this world! Now... If you’ll excuse me I am going to browse through the app store for a GOOD singing app!
The updates and customer service are horrible
by sahayla02 on 2020/10/16 19:50
I have used this product for years and one thing has been unfortunately consistent, poorly rolled out and thought out updates. It is clear that those who regularly use the app are not consulted. The only ppl who seem to like the updates are those who you actively promote. I have yet to see a positive review of the latest update. Also, your responses that users just need to learn how to use it are extremely condescending. We understand exactly what the new changes are and they are horrible. We do not like them, they are limiting, and ruin the experience. There are plenty of times being able to leverage completely different sound fx in a single song is necessary and results in a much better product. We use the product and actually sing, it is clear whoever thinks up these changes does not. Do not presume to tell us what sounds better and that that is why we should embrace this. Like I said, your responses have been extremely condescending. I am so disappointed in this change, rollout and response. Do better and change it back!
The new UI is not an improvement.
by DragonFractal on 2020/08/20 18:38
I really loved using this app. Please revert back to the previous UI. Why? 1. It is too easy to switch songs by accident. I scroll down to see comments, not to switch songs. I choose songs deliberately. I am now getting frustrated and exiting the app sooner than I otherwise would. 2. It is hard to navigate the playback because the slider is not sensitive enough to notice my finger most of the time. Instead, I end up accidentally pressing the share button or some other button below the playback bar. Please, at a minimum, fix this. I actually prefer the version where the play/pause button was to the left of the slider (that you had a couple years ago) because it was easy to stop playback at a specific time, see what exact time that was, and listen to a certain section over and over for practice. 3. Where did the list of singers in a group go? 4. Where did the globe go? I loved seeing people’s general locations around the world.
Great app if equal access!
by Kay Music Fan on 2019/02/23 20:53
Why did some people get Spotlight AND Hype FX before others got either...? Love this app but still really want Hype FX available to ALL soon! Also wondering why Super Harmony only shows up on some songs, and isn’t a set iOS FX choice...? Other issue is with the “bad gateway” message where songs are just GONE when you try to save them...ONCE I found them saved in a queue like Smule was backing them up, but it seems like that was only one day, cus I never saw it again otherwise. And the option for saving something when you come back to the app has NEVER worked for me, only crashed the app until I agreed to trash the recording. If you could fix these problems, it would be a 5 star app. And if you could magically find a way to allow for an in-ear monitor when using Bluetooth headphones (the lag currently makes this impossible, but Bluetooth is becoming a necessity), that would make you a 6 star app 😆😆😆
I love this app!
by LunaLizzard on 2019/01/29 18:26
It’s so much fun! I would’ve given it 5 stars but when I signed up for the 7 day VIP trial it only worked 5 of those days. I contacted support and this was their response: It appears that you have not started a free trial from the account associated with email address l......@.....com. If you subscribe to a free trial, you’ll gain the same VIP privileges as a subscriber. If you enjoy your free trial, do nothing and it will automatically convert to a VIP subscription at the end of the trial period. So I sent screenshots to show them I had and their response was very... Nonchalant. They repeatedly told me to check my iTunes subscriptions. Even after asking if they could give me the days that didn’t work, their response was As per our system, your 7-day trial started on Dec 17th and ended on Dec 24th so everything seems fine on our end. Unfortunately, we do not have any further information about your subscription, as it was processed via iTunes. Please check out the Apple subscription article if you have further questions. I’d have to just say, I have had a lot more enjoyable experiences with other companies support but as far as the app goes I enjoy it a lot. I haven’t heard of anyone else having issues with the trial so maybe it was something on my end. But after the issue I experienced I’m unsure about paying for VIP. I think I’ll just continue with a free account.
All Time Favorite App 💜
by Joro9o on 2018/12/02 23:20
I have always loved singing, just not around/with other people listening - Until this year. I was going through a rough patch, started to record myself singing on Voice Memos (acapella in parking garages and showers for the acoustics) as a distraction from life. Then I wondered if there was a better way to save my songs. Googled and searched the App Store and found this gem! All it took was that one week trial and I was hooked.. I can go back and fix minor mistakes I made without having to record the ENTIRE song again. I can add a filter effect to change my voice to match the music of the songs I’m singing. I can sing along with celebrities. I can sing along with friends I invite privately or publicly. I can even sing with strangers around the world! Music is healing, and music truly does connect all humans. Thank you Smule for helping us to heal and unite all of us! 🙏🏼
Smule Is The Way To Go! 🤩
by AshleyPrincess22 on 2018/08/28 00:08
Smule really helps me relax , I can watch videos of people singing, even duet with them or solo.I love to watch lives because they show me to be confident.I enjoy Smule a lot , Just a few things tick me off , How you can’t do Solo or start a Group or Duet because you’re not VIP. I really have nothing to do at home so I play on my phone and Smule is one of the best , but I think Smule should have some better quality , Cause some people ( Like me ) Don’t like earbuds or headphones, they irritate me so much so yeah... But on the bright side , I can have fun when I’m bored and have a great day with the microphone In MY PHONE!!! 🏅🏅Also, It’s so amazing that you can meet new friends sing with them and create friendship through 1 single song! Smule brings together people which is lovely. 😊 I love how you can change the voice to Like “ Double You “ ( That’s my Fave. ) I have to wrap it up here , But Smule , Keep rising , gaining and Winning! 🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤💗💗
Group songs
by Tobytyga on 2018/08/28 17:46
I think it’s not right for anyone to subscribe to Smule when they have a discrepancy in their group song allowing sabotaging of the song. What Smule don’t understand that It causes conflicts, when allowing people to sing over everyone else instead choosing a part of the song as group song suggests. Smule allows this to happen and want address the problem instead turn a blind eye and refuses to refund you. That’s a problem. Nobody should have to pay for someone’s else mistake. Smule doesn’t give you an option to delete the one off the song so they get it right. But instead you have to delete the whole song and start over again for the same action to happen again by someone else. Then you want customers to respectful, when Smule can’t hold same standard. Buyers beware you want this out until you subscribe.
Suggestions
by Flak shahs on 2019/09/06 04:09
My sister and I both live the concept of this phone game there’s only 2 things I suggest 1. Work on making council versions of your game (such as pair with Xbox and or Nintendo something like that) that connect to the internet same as the phone app to allow people with head sets and microphones that already play games and like singing to have a bigger screen and more control over the sound of our voices and more playing options 2. Make your own head set or pair with a already well known company to perfectly match with the singers. Inturn help them with harmonies and vocals by making them have a good amount of song and voice Hurd rather then the singers putting in headphones not being able to hear them selves screaming the music sounding bad and never getting the practice or recognition they are working towards all while using your fun vocal app.
Need a pitch adjusting option
by KHAN ROSNE on 2018/09/27 09:22
Hi. This is Rosne. I’m using smule from 10 month. It’s a greatest app for singing. I’m using every option of it. I’ve improved my singing so much better than before. I’m just loving this app so much. Everything is so well in this app. But one thing I want the developers to make. Please make an option as pitch adjust. Sometimes some music creat on high scale & everybody can’t sing on high scale. So some people still try to sing on high scale or skip it. Sometimes We can’t sing our favourite song because of high scales. But singing out of your voice range can damage voice... please make this “”PITCH ADJUST”” option so that anybody can sing any song. I’m requesting smules developer to make this option pleeeeeaaaassssseeeee....... & make it a fastest app ever with fast massages & fast loading. we want to sing heart out..... sing to relief our heart. Not to damage voice. Thanks for reading my review 🎼🎼🎼
Deceiving, very disappointed
by ElizabethPauline on 2019/07/10 08:47
I got the app for the sole purpose of recording and listening to practice my vocals, never even got to record anything. You have to pay $9.99 a week to sing literally anything other than something in an entirely different language, or something you’ve never heard of before. Sure, you could do duets, but I’d rather record alone and not share my progress on an open profile like an Instagram, I personally find it embarrassing. If duets are the only option offered for non “VIP” members, this app is deceitfully claiming to be the best singing app. Extremely limiting. But, if price is not an object, the quality of what I had seen was very nice and there are many different options to choose from. This is literally the only app in the 10 years that I’ve owned an iPhone that I have even bothered to write a review for. I was very excited to try the app but the unwavering restriction to content was very disheartening. Hope this can be modified in the future.

I love this game no joke I get to do duets with other people and I have so much fun on it I don't know what I would be doing if I didn't have this game I would probably be bored sitting in my room doing nothing set for homework I love this game and I've had so much fun playing this game and I am not being paid to say this message like some people think I actually really love this game and I think anyone who doesn't have this game should get it because other people around the world that have singing talents can use the singing talents and sing with other people and people can get really high expectations and be really happy with this game and it even rows my whole my extreme a lot for singing I think I'm not now might not be stage fright after this I want to play every single day after school and I cannot wait to play some more!!!!!!!!!😇😍😂😝😜😍😇😂🤣😘😋😋😋
Meh
by NickiTheFox on 2019/05/19 04:15
Yeah, it’s great and all but I’ve gotten double charged for some reason. I get it, it’s only $10 a week but at the same time, I can’t be dealing with getting double charged. I have literally the same charge on my account back to back. From the same place as this app always charges me. It’s happened once but if it happens again, I’ll probably end up unsubscribing from the app and not using it again. Besides that little issue, the app is great. I enjoy being able to hear myself when talking or singing but it’s not an echo that makes you mess up. It’s weird but it’s very satisfying to be able to correct the flaws I have in my voice. I can pick out the wrong notes I sing a split second after I sing them because I can hear myself. I don’t have to hope for the best and see if my recording did any good. I’ll technically know before hand. I think it’s perfectly balanced sound echo that doesn’t mess with your head. I don’t know how else to put it.
I love this app!
by MeaghanLemon on 2017/10/19 13:52
It's a great app. I love it! The only thing I would like changed is that I would like it a bit better if they could somehow either figure out how to make it so that you would not need headphones to reduce feedback, or stop telling you to put headphones on when you just don't care about the feedback noise. Sometimes a bit of feedback can be okay (depending on the song), so, sometimes, I don't care. But whatever, it's a great app, and there are so many good songs on there! Edit: one more thing I would like them to do is I would like a way to delete unwanted invites (invites to songs you don’t know or don’t like). I get invited to sing some songs that I’ve never even heard of, and some songs that I’m not really into. I’d like a way to delete those invites so that I can more easily get to the invites to songs that I do want to sing!
Livejams issues and non-vip struggles
by kellita99 on 2019/09/11 22:28
Livejams were one of the best updates that this app had however, it would’ve been better if there weren’t so many issues coming with them. Here’s what I mean by issues; First, livejams have been crashing more than usual; The app just randomly shuts down during lives which causes people to lose their lives. Also, it’s annoying when you’re singing a song and then the app crashes in the middle of it. Next, livejams are also lagging more than usual; it lags so much that you can’t hear anything the people on the mic are saying, your screen freezes (if you’re on the mic) or either the lyrics don’t load or when you’re singing with others you hear a delay. Also, I think that the app is being very unfair to non-vip users (they can’t do anything except join someone else’s collabs while vips can open collabs, go live, be admin on lives and have unlimited storage/nice layouts). If you’re not going to give the non-vips more options then why even make the app free?!
