I believe SingSnap could really benefit from having a mobile version of itself! You could listen to recordings, read the message boards, and send/receive PMs, and whatever else a mobile version would support.

I personally have an iPhone, and there are over 50,000 apps for the iPhone. Seems every influential website has an app on the iPhone. Most are free, some are $0.99, etc. I would so pay $0.99 (or even $4.99 for that matter!) for a SS app! Think of how much revenue that could generate! Or, to be fair to the blue members, they could have a free, ad-supported app, and a non-ad app for $0.99.

Surely there is someone on SS who would be willing to volunteer to write a mobile version for SS, perhaps in return for free gold membership!

It doesn't even have to be an iPhone app. Maybe just a web-based mobile version. The url could be something like http://m.singsnap.com or http://www.singsnap.mobi.

What do you think?

Oh... well lol my phone doesn't support flash, so anytime I visit a page, instead of the recording I get a blue box with a question mark in it. All I can do is read the message boards and PMs. It would be nice to have a version dedicated to mobile browsers.

I agree. There have been many times I've wanted to show people singsnap on my iPhone and have been unable to play them a song or video. I would love it and I also think it would be beneficial to the company.. We need this... Please take this suggestion Trevor!

I wish I could listen to recordings on my lunch break. Would be neat to make it a gold sub perk, but I'm not above chucking a few bucks at it.

Hi. This is a great idea. I've wanted to be able to record my karaokes on my iphone. There are recording apps out there for the iphone already, none of them support adding a karaoke track.

The problem is, Steve Jobs hates Adobe for some personal reason, so he refuses to add flash to his iphone and ipads. He is hoping the whole industry will bend to his wishes and adapt html 5.0 which plays flash without flash.

I would pay $10 for a Singsnap app on any mobile phone. I think your best bet is the new Google cell phones coming out. They are open source and will automatically play flash as compared to iphone, which will NEVER play Singsnap.

Even people who are trying to develop appications for the iphone have problems because Apple is so secretive about how the programs codes work on the iphones.

Short answer? Get a Google phone! It will already run the flash necessary to play Singsnap, and has headphone and microphone outputs!

Singsnap should convert their videos to run via HTML 5 which will allow it to play on the iPhone. Many more iPhone owners and now iPad that could be using singsnap.

I second HTML 5. This would be a first for a mobile app for karaoke and Singsnap could start the innovation. Flash will soon be on it's way out as HTML 5 becomes more prevalent in cyberspace.

I gave up on Iphone ever getting flash.. I had a chance to upgrade and I now have a Samsung Galaxy Captivate and I love it!!!! I can play Singsnap videos and share them with my friends.. It's very similar to the Iphone in a lot of the functions but much better in my honest opinion..

I can get to Singsnap on my Samsung Galaxy Fascinate & read msg board and different things but cannot play any one's recordings or play a Karaoke song just to show someone how it works or to sing when away from my computer. AN APP would be great!!!! I have some other Karaoke apps on my phone but one is only MIDI songs and not that reliable. We NEED this app...I can't believe no one has done this for SINGSNAP yet!!??? Or, am I mistaken cause I haven't been on here in a while??

Edited reply by pauld2468GOLD

well, you are in luck sort of.

I say sort of because it only works for those who do on "cam" recording and not video. the app is called skyfire. it's $2.99 in the app store. It's a browser like safari that does play flash "Video".

The one problem with it is I found the audio a is a bit off pitch and the video jerks even on Wii-Fi. kind of like listening to really old internet radio stations back in the mid 90's early 2000's but hey it does work.

Since all my recordings are on web cam you can view my recordings as an example on the iphone as long as you make sure you use SS original flash player while using skyfire and not the beta one. you toggle this right above the player window. it finds the video and plays it. that simple. until something better comes around, that's what we have for now.

Good Luck

I listen to singsnap on my galaxy tablet..Very disappointed in Adobe not going forward with flash for mobile devices..Very poor business move on their part.

Ammm ummmm... not suggesting anybody should do anything hastily but
SS (and flash) does work on iPhone should one care to jailbreak it...
and SS does work on other mobile platforms even without the need of jailbreaking...
I hear LOL!

WTB portable phone tripod when playing acoustic guitar and singing in the SS chatroom on the go. I have been waiting for this for a long time. Years actually, lol! For the longest time I have just taken my laptop with me wherever to jam. This would be much simplier.

We're currently working on and testing an app for iPhones. We'll also be working on an Android app too. We don't currently have an estimated completion date though. When we start testing on Android phones we'll post a thread in the General Discussion group asking for testers.

There is a web browser called Photon in AppStore.
If you pay $4.99, then your problems will be solved forever.

Wow!!! DennoDen was right.... Photon worked like a charm. And actually it's now going for $3.99. Not bad in the meantime, while the app is developed. It works great. Thanks DennoDen.... I am a new member, but love to sing, and I'm glad I can now partake in my guilty pleasure on the go with this app. I'm loving SIngSnap so far and am SOOOOOO excited to post up mah first recording. Hope to make some cool new friends here.!!!

Trevor has on his status that SS songs now play on iPhone and iPad. I have an iPhone4 and they don't play on mine. Is there now an app to get them to play that you don't have to pay for?

Recordings should play natively on iDevices now. You don't need a special app for the songs to play. However, recording isn't possible at this time. So only recorded renditions will play.
