    Smule updates

    If they update so often, then there must be too many bugs to fix, like an infestation that can't be cleared properly - if ever!

    Smule updates

    There's no subscription-based app I have that's a) more than 5 years old; b) issuing new bugfix updates every week, sometimes even twice a week; c) constantly manifesting new bugs in the basic user interface; and d) removing features that most paying subscribers found useful. There is nothing normal about what's going on with this app. My guess is there's a lot of infighting within the company and the outcome is what we users have to deal with: bizarre changes for no apparent reason, and a degradation in the capabilities and user-friendliness of the app.

    Smule updates

    Not really. I just checked the latest 10 app updates on my iOS phone. Eight had those generic “bugs and stability” messages, only two actually described the specifics.

    Smule updates

    Except this is a 10 year old app. You don't have frequent bug fixes in such old apps unless the developers are making meaningless changes. In this case, the changes usually break working parts of the app. Meanwhile, loads of problems in the app which people have been complaining about, they refuse to fix. Most apps provide a detailed list of changes. These guys just write "Changes to make singing easier" or something vague like that. But the app gets worse with every change, because this team is making changes for the sake of making changes (they probably have nothing better to do). Lately I've seen menu items disappearing off the screen, which you have to refresh the app to bring back (pull down the app on an iPhone). There's no excuse for this sort of bug in a mature app which has a high subscription fee.

    Those contain minor bugfixes. This is normal in software development.

    I've noticed Smule has frequent updates - none of which is has any significance in terms of using the platform itself. Any idea what are they updating?

    Smule Unfollow: How to beat the Follow to Unfollow tactics by spammers

    Aha, thanks for clarifying! 😀 As you might've guessed, I lost track of the thread history and didn't even think of going back to reread the messages. Sorry about that! For me also, learning who unfollowed me recently is the most interesting thing. I've now gone through my whole list and unfollowed the ones I don't want to follow anymore, and from now on I'm naturally only interesed in any "new developments".

    Smule Unfollow: How to beat the Follow to Unfollow tactics by spammers

    If I unfollow someone, it means I don’t want to sing with that person anymore. It’s usually for a good reason, so I’ll be totally OK with it if they return the favor. I don’t check either, because most people I sing with, I’ve been singing with for years and I don’t expect them to unfollow me. That’s the same reason I don’t unfollow them. I just try to make mental notes of which ones I don’t want to join anymore. And if someone who doesn’t sing with me anyway unfollows me, it makes no difference to me.

    If you do decide to go this way look for the original I rig p re that runs on a 9v its the best one to date
  14. I don't check the vip status when following singers but only whether they are genuine and good. But I instantly unfollow singers if they unfollow me unless I consider them too good to part company.😁 Rarely anyone checks, I guess. Primarily because the unfollow is not notified and again many just do not care. Checking on others happens when there is an interaction like a join, like or comment. So you should be safe on your unfollow spree.😁

    Smule Unfollow: How to beat the Follow to Unfollow tactics by spammers

    Wow! Thanks to everyone who has added to this thread, and especially to @opentypefor adding this feature on Sing.Salon. Now I just have to hope that people don’t use it to find out I’m not following them 😂 I try to follow non vips who are still active and join my songs, or who I’ve joined in the past when they had vip. But I sometimes unfollow vip users when they don’t listen to their joins, and there are several I would like to unfollow but don’t because they would be the ones who would check.

    Thank you my friend for your answer. Yes, it’s one of the solutions. I will try it, I’ve the interface but sometimes is a little burdensome.
  17. The starting message on this thread is about such a feature by myself. @opentype's version is an improvement of the same idea with smule login activated to access complete followings and followers. Mine works without login but only useful if the Following/Followers count is under 500. @Bhavs suggests a method using Excel sheets which also includes copying the complete Followings/Followers lists. After finding out the way to see the recently unfollowed singers using diffchecker, it has become the better reason for using it. Because that was what I was looking for really. Knowing who unfollowed me lately allows me to recollect my activities/inactivites with that singer which prompted that singer to unfollow me.

    Smule Unfollow: How to beat the Follow to Unfollow tactics by spammers

    Thanks! 😀 Very creative, and thanks for sharing! This can be used for for other purposes as well. There's an Excel add-in called Inquire that I use very often at work, and it would also do the trick, but it's not readily available to me unless I'm at work--and using the work computer for something that isn't actually work 😬😅 I noticed that the lists have to be sorted for this to work, but that's achievable with e.g. Google Spreadsheet. Neat! I don't know if you're aware of it, but there's a newly implemented service available here (on SingSalon) with the specific purpose of showing you who follows back and who doesn't: https://sing.salon/who-is-following-me-back-on-smule/. I tried it right away and it's beautiful! It doesn't (yet) have the feature of highlighting who has recently unfollowed you, but otherwise it's simpler than using DiffChecker. I really appreciate your sharing DiffChecker with us nevertheless. I bet I'll use that site for something pretty soon/often, if not for Smule related stuff.

    I say use a irig mic pre with a apple connection a xlr mic cable and your choices of mic and call it a day problem solved.
  23. Just found out that there is an easy way to filter out singers who do not follow back. By using a file difference checker. I used https://www.diffchecker.com/ Use it on your laptop. Go to smule.com and copy your Followers to the Changed Text box (right) and Followings to Original Text box. Press Find Difference at the bottom and a beautiful color-coded result is displayed for you. The singers in red background in the left side are the ones not following you back. This can be used for finding out who unfollowed recently also. For this set up diffchecker by entering current Followers into both the boxes. Then use the option to save your diff with a name such as "Followers on September 29". Open diffchecker when you want to find out who unfollowed you and copy current Followers to the Original Text (right) box and press Find Difference. The recently unfollowed singers will be highlighted in red in the left box. Hope this helps to streamline your followings.😁

    You need to contact Smule for support. However, I am not sure they will be able to help in this case.

    I can't delete collabs that people have joined

    If you want to delete your oc and others have joined, you will have to delete their joins first, only then you can delete your oc. Hope that helps. Not very nice to delete people's joins since they took time to sing with you.

    I can't delete collabs that people have joined

    Looking at your pic above, you don't see the Delete option cos there is just you for that recording. You have to go to the joins, then there is the Delete option. If you want to delete your own song, then Edit and you can delete from there.
