Could be quite a bit better

Listen, I'm not trying to be too hard on smile here but this app isn't too great in some areas. The gameplay is truly not that bad most of the time and not having to be precise makes up for big fingers. The thing is, for the songs I played, I was playing the vocals and it sounded off as well. The least you could do is play the song in the background. That would really make it better. I do like the interface and the fact that you can get credits without money. One last annoyance is this screen that you can slide up while playing with 3 fingers. I was playing freebird and it came up more than twice. Fixing these minor things would make the game more enjoyable and a lot less irritating

Ok I LOVE my guitar. This guitar seems strange. At least after being so used to playing on a real guitar. Anyway. Like magic piano ( which I have) it needs more artists. I would love the app and give it 5 stars then. I would be soo happy if u gave it Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri. And it needs, NEEDS Taylor Swift songs. Ok when I think of guitar ( acoustic ) I think of country music. Kinda. Anyway ( I'm not big in country music but I love Taylor swift) I would really love it if magic piano and magic guitar got an upgrade with some more artists. Ok and Taylor swift is popular so I don't know I could be wrong but I think if u added taylor swift songs people would be happier with the app. This app is rated 3 stars but when u add taylor swift and christina perri songs then I will give it 5. Thank you. 😊
