Not blessed with musical talent? No problem! There's no need to enter if you don't feel like it.
iSing brings you fresh new faces and music all the time. And iSing lets you be the audience and judge for all the people entered. You can listen to recordings and vote thumbs up or down in this worldwide challenge to see who has the most fans.

What's New in Version 2.0
Version 2.0 adds the ability to send Fan Mail!
Tap an iSing performer to view their details. Then tap the Fan Mail button, and complete the In-App purchase.
Then you can compose your Fan Mail, telling the performer how great you think they are. We moderate the message just to make sure it's not offensive, then we pass it onto the performer.
This continues to be fun
I don't usually buy entertainment/games apps, but this one caught my eye. And it's even more fun than I expected. It's like American Idol for the rest of us with instant gratification on entering and doing the reviews of contestants. I like surfing through the contestants and sorting by best and worst. If you like music and singing and hearing people have fun, this is for you. And it's one of the few entertainment apps that I keep coming back to. Most games I just play once or twice. This one stays fresh and fun in an ongoing way. Give it a try!
I like the idea behind this app and it would still be on my iPod if they had only just refreshed the submissions regularly. I checked this app every day for a week to see if my submission had been reviewed and everyday I was disappointed. It wasn't just me either. There were NO new submissions in 7 days. Doesn't that seem a bit strange to you? I checked the FAQs to see if this was normal and found that submissions are supposed to be reviewed in about one business day. This lack of maintenance frustrated me to the point of deleting the app. I won't be downloading it again until this issue is resolved.
Love but confuzed
Heyy! I love this app and it's so much fun to see what people think of my voicebut I just went on it and for some odd reason it said: An Error Occurred While Loading The Data. I'm sad now and my upload for last month says it's published but it did t show up! I posted it on October 3!
