      Poweramp v3 Project Update   04/24/2017

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code. It is hoped this will be ready for final beta-testing by the end of the May. See forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. As you are probably aware, the Poweramp developer, Max, has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3, which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code so has taken over a year to develop. It's not quite ready to be released for open testing yet, and the current plan is now to have the final beta version available for downloading by the end of May. It's very hard to predict the exact development time - as a quick example, the bottom navigation panel, which was predicted to take a couple of days to complete, has already consumed a week's work. Max has all the custom components ready (buttons, new Album Art effect, lists, grids, now bottom navigation, etc., with everything animated) but during assembling - partly due to his attention to the fine details - it is taking a bit more time than anticipated. He doesn't want to just release it as is, with jerky animation and some non consistent behaviors. Slide-in side menus (drawers) have been dropped completely. All user interface and navigation is now gesture and button driven, and the primary supplied skin will be white. However when using visualizations a black background will be used as they cannot be rendered on white. A black themed skin will also be provided. Third-party skins will need to be redesigned for v3, and Max will be releasing the documentation for that closer to the main app release. The final release will include fixes for all supported hi-res audio devices and more (mostly Chinese) brands. There won't be any other major changes to the existing alpha-test audio engine or effects. The next beta release will basically be close to the intended v3 release, so effectively feature complete, and the official release will hopefully follow shortly. There won't be a lengthy delay like there was between alpha and beta. Also, Poweramp v3 will be Android 5.0+ (Lollipop+) only, although the old PA v2 version will get a few bug fixes and will remain available for users of Android 2.3 - 4.4. Max has said he will become more active here on the forums once the beta-test is released to catch feedback. Once the official v3 release is complete, Max will turn his attentions to building new features for 'v4', which will include: Audio effect plugin framework, with sample projects. More configuration options for existing Poweramp DSPs (e.g. parametric equalizer interface and selectable 5-8-10-16-24-32 EQ bands). DLNA/Chromecast output (if Google will stop changing the Chromecast APIs all the time!). A tablet-specific user interface (there is no specific tablet layout included with v3). For the latest update from Max, please see http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/10136-Poweramp-v3-project-update/&page=8#comment-40253 Andre
  2. Poweramp v3 Project Update

    OK, I've unlocked this topic, but please play nicely or it will be locked again. Andre P.S. I won't be available to check the forums much over the next five days, so I've let Max know so he or Alex can pop in to check if there's anything urgent here in the meantime. ETA requests will probably not be considered as urgent.
  3. Absence...

  4. Samsung S8 High Res Audio support

    Some people report it works for them - are you using Poweramp build 704? Andre
  5. Poweramp music player

    More information please - is this a Google Play purchase for example? Andre
  6. Does the current status in Poweramp Settings > About normally show as Verified? If so, it shouldn't need to look again. Andre
  7. I wish I knew why this keeps happening to some people. Max think some devices or ROMs might not be allowing PA to save the status data correctly, and so it does not survive a reboot and needs to check again afterwards (which of course is a problem with planes where you have to switch off for takeoff/laving). I fly several times a year and have never had a licence issue (mine is a regular Google Play licence key). I'll be taking two flights tomorrow and another two on Friday so I'll check again, but I can never recreate the problem. Andre
  8. Sorting songs by Date Descending

    It will definitely produce odd results if you don't have the Filesystem setting enabled. Without that, all of the songs which were originally scanned when you first installed the app (or last did a Full Rescan) will have the same (and oldest) 'Date Added' value. Thus newer stuff will show neatly in date-added order at the top of the regular ordering list, while all the oldest stuff will all be in one date-block at the end. This is not helpful with reverse date ordering of course, as there's no way to sort all those originally-scanned items separately. Andre
  9. Hopefully these should no longer be issues when the next beta is released as the user-interface has been rebuilt from the ground up. Andre
  10. Poweramp is not showing right the photos of the albums

    You're welcome, hope that helped. Sometimes it can be a bit of a black art balancing embedded artwork, downloaded artwork, and in-folder image files! Andre
  11. Shuffle option for milkdrop presets

    That is already available, there are several options in fact. Swipe the control panel in from the right-hand edge of the player screen, and at the bottom you will see the two manual change buttons ( << and >> ) and between them you will see a 'Lock' icon. Tap that icon to try out the different automatic change options (one of which is Shuffle). Andre
  12. 购买了,但是不能通过验证!

    You don't say how you bought the unlocker (Google Play or from the website). If it was from the website, please see http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/323571-unlocker-without-google-account . If that doesn't help, please email Poweramp.maxmpz@gmail.com with your full details. Andre
  13. I don't know why a stock Galaxy S8 should have this issue, unless there is some issue with saved licence retention methods on this device (did you have to turn your phone off and reboot after takeoff?). Once a licence has been fully verified (within 48 hours or so of first install) it should not need to be checked again. http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/323557-is-internet-connection-required Andre

  15. PA - Play Album?

    What do you mean by 'kill', do you mean delete the album from your device memory? If you just mean stop playback then just press the Pause button, or choose a different track from the library list. Andre
  16. Refoumd app

    Please contact Poweramp.maxmpz@gmail.com with your full purchase details so this can be looked into for you. Thanks. Andre
  17. HOW TO CONTACT Poweramp?

    Warning: There are places to discuss piracy tools on the internet. This, however, is not one of them. 4 posts deleted. Andre
  18. HOW TO CONTACT Poweramp?

    Not going to bother answering your tirade of insults further than to say that there are several million happy (paid up) users of Poweramp and it is widely regarded as one of the best music apps on the market. You were also given a first response to your query here within about 30 minutes of your posting the issue, so good luck with finding better support elsewhere if that is your definition of a scam. Poweramp is developed by a single person, not a company, incidentally. If you are determined to be unhappy, and unwilling do anything to help yourself other than by trolling about finding a pirate copy then there's obviously nothing anyone here can do for you. And as you appear to have resolved your problem, any further unsubstantiated rants with no useful content will be deleted. Andre
  19. HOW TO CONTACT Poweramp?

    If you have a problem with license verification, first please check the FAQs (e.g. http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/323557-is-internet-connection-required ) If that does not resolve your problem, please email Poweramp.maxmpz@gmail.com to discuss user-account specific information. Have a nice sleep (I have no idea what your bedtime is). [Duplicate thread removed, and moved this one to a more relevant forum as it is not related to alpha-testing of Poweramp v3] Andre
  20. Poweramp for Windows 10

    I rather doubt it, it takes all his time to work on the Android version. Andre
  21. Poweramp v3 Project Update

    I'm closing this thread for 24 hours until people calm down. The beta will be out when its out, and shouting and cussing about it won't make any difference. Andre
  22. Poweramp v3 Project Update

    I wish I could give you a definitely answer, but as Max has said the development game is notoriously unpredictable, and sometimes just one unexpected issue can take days or weeks to resolve. Given that he stated that some device-specific issues have caused a few further delays, I do wonder whether still hoping for a May release may now be a bit optimistic. I am going to be away with my family for the whole of the week starting 29 May by the way, but I'll try to catch up with any outstanding forum issues when I return - and hopefully I'll have a shiny new beta version of Poweramp to install when I get back! Erm... Andre
  23. Nexus 6p Poweramp keeps stopping

    I would stick to the release build in the meantime until the next beta release which should address a number of recent device and/or Android N issues. Andre
  24. Poweramp v3 Project Update

    If you have 1800 songs to work on, then doing anything in Poweramp is going to be a horrendously long-winded process anyway. I would suggest using a proper PC rather than anything on a mobile device, and use a decent batch tag editor (I use TagScanner for example). Andre
  25. Poweramp Resets After Exit (Nexus 5X)

    That is the startup behavior you will see when you click on a homescreen icon to launch the app, which you can adjust in Poweramp Settings > Look and Feel > General > Startup Screen. If you want to return to the last screen you were on while the app is still in memory, just use the Recent Apps button on your device to resume Poweramp from the recent list. Andre
