      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.

Dislike a song button

9 posts in this topic

Hi Team,

There should be a dislike option or button for currently playing song.

Once we have disliked a song it will never play automatically unless we again remove the dislike tag.

Also we should be able to browse all dislike songs in library so that either we can delete them at once or selectively delete some of them.

How would that be different from giving a song a one-star rating, and then you can display all your songs in the Library sorted by their ratings and scroll to the one-star items and either delete them one-by-one or multi-select and delete. There isn't currently a specific way to shuffle only songs above a certain rating, but that is something that has been requested in the past.

This feature is not necessary, any song you don't like? Delete it.

There can be times..

When you don't want to delete a song (user may have his own reasons), but you also don't want it to be played during shuffle.

deleting solves one problem of song being not played, but then the song is gone forever.

If we have a dislike option, then both problems are resolved, song wouldn't play in shuffle but still you got the song available always.

As I said, just give the song one or zero stars, and all the songs you like more stars.

If you batch-edited all your songs to include an average rating first, and then use TheoKlink's New Playlist Manager app to import those file-based ratings into PA's database, you could use the Top Rated library view to Shuffle only the rated songs, while never hearing any unrated ones.

I think it's more important to have a way to exclude tracks from Shuffle to be honest. My phone always has a number of current 1-2 hour podcasts on it, and some 30 minute radio dramas, and assorted concept/soundtrack albums, which while I want to keep them on the phone, I don't want to appear in a routine random music mix.
