      Poweramp v3 Project Update   03/22/2017

      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's not quite ready for open testing yet, and although he would like to be able to get it out by the end of the March it may just drop over into April. See forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. I need to correct myself - at the time of writing I only saw the 'summary' of the pinned notice not the full message. Great to see some detail in there... look forward to seeing the result of this hard hard work....
  2. I see that - but it just sounds like echoing the already tired response of "it needs a full rebuild", a little more _detail_ on the progres might actually go a long way with appeasing hungry users who want nothing more than to see Max release a great, killer player. Currently all we see are delays, and no hint of progress - which unfortunately instills fear in users. Hopefully it'll be ready soon....
  3. Maaaax! Wake Up!

    Sounds like the last.fm scrobbling bugs will remain then? Man, spending a year solely on UI - sounds like a nightmare - I feel for Max - tho can't help but think that it'll something be so tailored and special, that it'll quite possibly become brittle over time ( I hope not ). Hopefully there's some judicious Dagger2 usage in there separating the core code from the UI. Personally I would have liked to have seen more/better features than a sole focus on a UI rewrite. As awesome as Poweramp is, it does still lack in areas. Still, I look forward to seeing it - given we're so close to release, I would have thought we'd have seen some kind of marketting hype/previews/hints coming out.
  4. Maaaax! Wake Up!

    So is there any sign of the new release at all? I sure hope to god there's something more than JUST the material UI in the new version when it lands....
  5. Is there any news about new build?

    Well that's more than I got from this twitter exchange recently, 9 months with no news of progress really leaves me wondering just what Poweramp 3 will be like with little user feedback. Here's hoping we'll be surprised with awesomeness.
  6. Poweramp alpha-build-703/704

    Oooo so looking forward to seeing what delights you're bringing us. I can see why it's taking time!
  7. Patience! Foul language should be banned!

    Amen. Mostly idling here, but I get the feeling that a bit more visibility into the progress of development might also help mitigate things ( altho, it might infuriate some with more "ack I want that feature NOW" type posts You're right - you can't rush quality or performance - but in part, that's why alpha builds get made - to get feedback from the wider community of random devices, media library sizes etc. etc. It's a hard line to cross for us dev type folk tho - toooo many builds yield way too many duplicate bug reports, not enough builds yield bugs reports never being filed.
  8. Poweramp alpha-build-703/704

    This sounds like a problem I recently had, and worked thru with Justin and crew at JRT. I'm going to guess your running Android 6? I was having endless issues with the m3u files being deleted, or not syncing properly, these problems where fixed in one of the more recent iSyncr Android updates - so it might pay to check you've got the latest APK installed and try resyncing.
  9. PowerAMP v2.0 beta 3

    I'm seeing something similar - but I've not tracked down exactly what its doing just yet. One thing I have noticed which may just be making me THINK this problem exists, is that Poweramp shows the number of tracks that USED to be in a .m3u playlist the last time it looked at them. I use iSyncrWifi to update my playlists with iTunes, and it rewrites the .m3u playlists, which when I go and look at them will say for example "10 songs", but if I add the playlist then I'll see "30 songs" ( 10 being yesterdays count, 30 being the current ). It could just be misleading you?
  10. PowerAMP v2.0 beta 3

    Actually - one thing that REALLY bugs me about the queue. If I'm sitting at track "45/100" in a queue, then clear the queue, and add 100 or so songs to the queue, the player is still at "45/100" in the queue, rather than what I'd expect - being 1/100.
  11. PowerAMP v2.0 beta 3

    Good to know - I had noticed that but wasn't sure. It's not really a problem, it just "felt" wrong. Maybe a menu option to "remove played tracks", similar to "remove duplicates".
  12. PowerAMP v2.0 beta 3

    This is one thing I don't particularly like about Poweramp. In my mind, once a song's been played it should REMOVED from the queue, not just greyed out, otherwise - it's not really a queue.
  13. PowerAMP v2.0 beta 2

    I think its just me - did an erase/rescan and everything seems back again.
  14. PowerAMP v2.0 beta 2

    Anyone noticing that beta2 isn't picking up file based playlists anymore ( well, not all of them ). I'm using iSyncrWifi and have a bunch of .m3u files in my /external_sd/syncr directory, Poweramp has picked up about 4 of them, but not the other 5-6... Maybe it's just me?
  15. PowerAMP v2.0 beta 2

    Awesome build! I would say "release" but I'll reserve that for the final. One thing I'm noticing, and I'm not sure I noticed this in beta1, or the previous stable release - due to how I'm syncing my music to my SGS2 device I have a few album folders that have album art, but no longer actually have any MP3/AAC files in them - however, Poweramp still shows them up as valid albums ( took me a while to work out why beta2 was adding 0 files to the queue - NO FILES *doh* ). It'd be great if Poweramp hid them from view.
