Best Walkout Songs / Re: Walkout Song Of the day
« on: April 15, 2021, 05:04:38 am »
Thanks for reviving the topic...

I used to gather the most popular songs by logging app usage, but new privacy laws make that a legal minefield a solo developer can't really navigate so I let that go.  It's also been 4 years since my last kid played his last high school game so I don't even know what's popular for Walkout Songs these days.  :)

Counting on you guys to let the users know what's lit!

I would suggest:
Make sure you have the latest version of Walkout Songs App 2.5.28
Kill and restart the Apple Music app as that is the host application for the iTunes song picker.
Kill and restart the Walkout Song app
Go to your device settings app and make sure the Walkout Song app has permission to access your "Media & Apple Music"
Power down and restart your device

If none of that works...  do a screen recording of you trying to open the iTunes song picker and email it to me at walkoutsongdj @

If you are on Apple, get the latest update of the app from the App Store.  I did a recent fix for that problem that Apple introduced with iOS 14.3

That function is based on the file format being mp3 and file permission allowing the Walkout Songs app to write to them.  If you can locate the files in your android file manager, make sure they are in mp3 format and then you could try moving them to another location where the Walkout Song app would have better access to write to them.

Some other Android options include the free online video converter at

Put in the song title and artist in their search bar and their web site will locate the youtube video for it and let you download as an mp3 music file. You can either download on a pc/laptop or directly on your Android.   They do limit you to 10 per day, but that works reasonably well in a couple days to get all you need for the app.

A little more expensive would be buying the songs individually from Amazon, download on a pc and copy to your device with usb cable.  You can also use the Amazon music app to purchase and download on your Android. They charge like 1.19 per song.

A little less expensive would be buying the songs individually from , or similar discount mp3 sites.  They charge around .10 per song and the files can be directly downloaded on your Android.

I wrote a very simple open source Android app to gather walkout songs from YouTube called 'Simple Song Collector'
You can download it from here:
(may need to long tap and select download link on newer Android devices)

You may need to change your Android settings when prompted to allow installation from your browser and override safety warnings, but there are no ads, tracking, or malware included so it should be safe to do so.

Just enter title and artist in the search, pick the best match, tap the download button and it will add the song to your android files and Walkout Songs will be able to see and use them in the My Music selector.  There is a choice of music or video search from the three dot in the upper right.  Some songs seem to only be available in the video category.

The Simple Song Collector is based loosely on an open source project called Newpipe.  If you would like to check out the original with all the bells and whistles, you can get it from here:

Search for your walkout songs in the app search bar, pick the best match from the result, tap it to open details, tap the download button and it will add the song to your android files and Walkout Songs will be able to see and use them.

Contact Casey Motter on Facebook at AllstarIntros.  He is the stadium announcer for the Atlanta Braves. You send him your player names and he will create announcements for your players for around $4 per player.  He will send you MP3 announcement files in an email.  Tap on the files, open with Walkout songs to import, and pick announcement as the type.

No, the family share functionality is at the iOS operating system level and my app has no control over it. 

I do see some steps to try from a google search:

and, as they mention at the end, if those steps do not solve the issue, open a support ticket with Apple to see if they can get it working for you.  It sure should be working.

The latest update version 2.5.26 for iOS available from the App Store has a fix to restore the direct air drop functionality for mp3 and m4a files.  If you could give it a try and see how it works, I would appreciate confirmation that it works.

From the native files app in iOS, you have two options with the latest version of Walkout Songs.  You can long tap on a music file and select share...  Walkout Songs should be in the list as a target and present the option to copy to import folders.  You can also tap the select button in the files app and multi-select audio files and import as many as you like.

If you are not seeing those options, I would suspect the files you are using are not being recognized correctly.  What audio format are they in?  You could share one to email to me at and I can try to duplicate the issue you are having.

The new version of the app also does a safety save of your data file to iCloud so you can recover if you delete/reinstall the app.  Unfortunately older versions of the app did not save the backup so there is nothing to restore from.

For Apple Music on an Apple phone, you don't need to import anything, just add a player, tap to select song, pick iTunes library and your Apple Music songs will be listed.

« on: February 27, 2020, 02:03:36 pm »
The default volume value is still 1.0, but the value now used is whatever you set on the config page or 1.0 if you never touch the setting.  if you take slider all the way to the right, it will be the default of 1.0

Like I did mention, your's seemed an odd request because I have never heard anyone mention that the text to speech was too loud.  I expect there was some odd situation on your device where either the text to speech engine was disproportionately loud or the song playback was disproportionately quiet and now it has fixed itself.

I guess the slider setting will help if anyone else's device gets in that funky situation.

Also, what is the source of the songs it is reporting as duplicate?  Are they from Apple Music, iTunes purchases, or imports?  If they are imports, can you email those to me as well?
