      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. Poweramp v3 Project Update

    Two news. The bad one: an additional round of device specific optimizing and polishing is required for Poweramp v3.0, this delays release. As indicated before, v3 will run on Androids 5.0+ (O included). Poweramp v2 stays for 2.3-4.4. Good one: everything works and I'm on finishing steps. Just stuff like Samsung Mali driver bug in phones up to S8+ causing inability to render some simple stuff in 60fps need to be taken care of (if interested, some Samsung Mali based devices - the ones with Exynos - have an issue in OpenGL HWUI renderer - they lag at render like 40 nine-patch images probably due to HWUI caching issues on those devices). Keep tuned.
  2. Poweramp v3 Project Update

    Sorry for the delay) I think I'm quite good at programming, but unfortunately, I'm bad on managing other developers, so basically I do everything by myself. That of course is not speeding things up. Also, I try to polish each feature until it works 100%. It's not possible to predict how long exactly that or this feature will take time to complete. Especially on Android, when you may need to write whole functionality from scratch as platform-provided one is buggy, is not reliable, or plain doesn't work on some devices/ROMs. Currently, planned v3 beta release month is set to May. This will be full featured v3 (it's basically alpha3 + new UI + fixes for recent ROMs, but not more). Thanks!
  3. Poweramp build-589 INTEL ONLY VERSION 589: fixed issue with Android 6.0 @ Intel based devices
  4. Version

    70,700 downloads

    Poweramp v2 for INTEL-based Android devices. For more information, see What's New in Version INTEL Build 589 - 589: fixed issue with Android 6.0 @ Intel based devices
  5. Small update on UI progress: Tthe UI redesign development is finishing, but a chunk is too big to swallow, thus the delays. Basically, the animations, transitions, lists, grids, seekbar, etc. were built from zero, as Android platform just doesn't give what's needed.
  6. Poweramp force closes

    The fix is ready and will be published after small in-house testing in a day or so. Thanks!
  7. Quick fix (build-704) is available here (same link as 703, it will suggest 704 for you): Please note, that this build hasn't been tested on non N devices. Also, N preview 3 (on some devices, like Nexus 5X) introduced issues with OpenGL driver, causing Poweramp visualization become black sometimes. As UI (and album art/visualization area, specifically) is changed in development UI builds anyway, so no point to fix that for Poweramp Alpha + N preview 3.
  8. Can you please send (PM) your /etc/audio_policy.conf file and build.props file? I'll check if adding Hi-Res is possible for this device. Thanks!
  9. Please also see small alpha FAQ here: Check also (growing)list of supported Hi-Res output Android devices: Request Hi-Res support if your device supports it, but Poweramp doesn't:
  10. Poweramp alpha3 build-703 Poweramp alpha3 build-704 (N preview 3 quick fix, not recommended for any other Android versions, as it wasn't tested outside N preview 3) Known issues: - on some device @ N preview 3, OpenGL surface can fail to be restored, causing no visualization in Poweramp Google Play testing Opt-in URL: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.maxmpz.audioplayer (Use this URL again for Opt-out if needed.) This is alpha version of upcoming major Poweramp release. Please make backup of your existing Poweramp app/settings/db before installation as you won't be able to rollback to Poweramp v2 without alpha uninstallation, causing settings to be lost. You can install it over your existing v2 or any alpha version (your purchase and settings will be carried over). At this time, only ARM processors are supported. We'll add Intel support for later beta builds. Min. supported Android: 4.1. Skins are disabled in alpha as UI is partially changed and there is no point in (re-)building skins now. Alpha-3: - 704: few fixes for N preview 3 - added DVC support for Hi-Res Snapdragon 24-bit PCM variant (e.g. LG Gx/v10, HTC A9, etc.)- Hi-Res support for Sony Z3, Meizu 5 Pro, Lenovo Vibe X3- Look and Feel / Status Bar/Notification / Notification Colors option to override non-standard ROM notification colors- mp3 vbr seeking improvements- 2 Hi-Res API variants (Sony Hi Res and Snapdragon 24-bit offload) for Sony Z5/P- option to always process/send album art (useful for smartwatches)- bt pause/resume polishing- scrobbling fixes, removed obsolete ScrobbleDroid support- album art downloading update- language selection fix- better current output device detection (wired headset vs bt)- other few small fixes
  11. Version 703/704

    Poweramp v3 (ALPHA-3 test builds 703 / 704) for standard (ARM-based) Android devices. Released: 16 April 2016 This is alpha version of upcoming major Poweramp release. Please make backup of your existing Poweramp app/settings/db before installation as you won't be able to rollback to Poweramp v2 without alpha uninstallation, causing settings to be lost. You can install it over your existing v2 installation (your purchase and settings will be carried over). At this time, only ARM processors are supported. We'll add Intel support for later beta builds. Min. supported Android: 4.1. Skins are disabled in alpha as UI is partially changed and there is no point in (re-)building skins now. Alpha-3: - added DVC support for Hi-Res Snapdragon 24-bit PCM variant (e.g. LG Gx/v10, HTC A9, etc.) - Hi-Res support for Sony Z3, Meizu 5 Pro, Lenovo Vibe X3 - Look and Feel / Status Bar/Notification / Notification Colors option to override non-standard ROM notification colors - mp3 vbr seeking improvements - 2 Hi-Res API variants (Sony Hi Res and Snapdragon 24-bit offload) for Sony Z5/P - option to always process/send album art (useful for smartwatches) - bt pause/resume polishing - scrobbling fixes, removed obsolete ScrobbleDroid support - album art downloading update - language selection fix - better current output device detection (wired headset vs bt) - other few small fixes
  12. Build-702 didn't support DVC on Gx series (Snapdragon Offload PCM24 bit variant). Support for DVC for this Hi-Res variant was addedin build 703, which will be released today-tomorrow.
  13. USB DAC hardware volume

    Poweramp doesn't have driver level access to USB DACs, so anything beyond android facilities is not possible here.
  14. .jpg, .jpeg, .png are checked for album art (during scan). Though, due to quite complicated priority system for album art (as there are multiple possible sources of covers for tracks), some other image can be selected. The only exception if <album_name>.jpg - for given album, Poweramp probes it namewith just .jpg extension.
