Where does Sing Insights get the data?
Our statistics tool uses public data provided by Smule through their website in a machine-readable way. It’s the same kind of data anyone can see while browsing your public profile on the app or the Smule website. We just analize and reformat the data to turn it into useful statistics.
What are the statistics based on?
Currently, our tool only reads the favorites of a Smule user – up to 250 entries by default or up to 500 if you choose the “complete mode”, which takes longer to generate. Loading the data for potentially tens of thousands of collabs per user would take to long, so only favorites are used. But a user’s favorites are the collabs a user cares about the most, so it is a useful foundation for generating statistics. Of course our tool can only work if the user has fav’ed enough of his or her own collabs.
What about privacy?
The account data is loaded on the fly from the Smule website when you use our tool to generate the statistic. If you close our website, the data is removed again. We do not store the account statistics in any way and apart from the regular server logs also do not monitor which user checks which user names with the Sing Insights tool.
