      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.

max,

574-581,Look at the red ring position, as long as it is Chinese name song, show the progress of the slide, it will stay at the top, can not correctly display progress!

Previous feedback posted,Before the feedback has been posted, repetition problem, it is very difficult to repair? This problem is very affecting the normal use of Chinese users! Request Max repair!

Another not-so-good change with 580 is that the icon overlays at the very top don't go away anymore - they stay there permanently, and they sit on top of the album cover:

With the previous build, these icons would fade out of sight along with the repeat, star rating, and shuffle icons, either if you had "Auto Hide Panels" enabled, or else if you tapped on the album cover to make the overlay icons disappear. That no longer happens with 580.

 

Can this change be reverted to the previous behaviour - at least as an option for those of us who prefer nothing to cover the album image - please?

 

I've just updated to 581 via the Play Store, and the issue I described above still seems to exist: the action bar icons at the top of the screen still stay there permanently, sitting on top of the album cover - they don't go away when you tap the image like they used to in previous versions. (The icons underneath the album cover, for repeat, rating, and shuffle, do go away when you tap the image), and this is how the icons at the top used to behave:

 

581 with top and bottom icon bars showing:

581 after I tap on the album cover to make the icon bars go away - the top icons remain covering the picture (this is the behaviour that has changed):

The way it used to look in previous versions when the icon bars were not visible - no icons sitting on top of the image - this is what I'd love to see again!

It would be really great if the behaviour of those top icons could be reverted so that they don't show at all when the image is tapped!

 

And yes, I know I'm using a 3rd party skin here (as I'm sure many users are) - but this behaviour also exists with the default skin too. And ideally Poweramp should work in such a way that 3rd party skins - which are actively promoted in the settings via the "Get more skins" button - will not be negatively affected by the way it behaves! :)

Have you tried turning off the Android Action Bar and using Poweramp's skinned menus instead? (if your phone does not have a physical menu button it might also be an idea to tick the "Show Menu Icon" item too, to force that button).

Yes, I've tried that, and then it does work as expected - the top menu bar fully disappears then, when the album cover is tapped. However I'd like to be able to use the Action Bar too, and have it use the same behaviour. I'm fairly sure that the Action Bar did behave that way in the past? But even if it did not, I think it makes sense that it should behave this way, at least so the behaviour is consistent with how the skinned menu functions.

 

Are you able to ask the developer about this topic?

The dev does read this topic, but not very regularly.

So is this the best way to let him know about requests and issues, or is there another way?

You could use the Get Support feature in the app, and then click on the Menu button to see the "Contact" option. Or just email poweramp.maxmpz(at)gmail.com.

Any chances to have "Volume Ducking" implemented on "Short Audio Focus"? Or at leasty any news of the progress on Poweramp 3 (if any)?

 

Greetings.

As you may have noticed, Max has updated our forums to the latest version from IPS.

I've also taken the opportunity to set up the 'Downloads' tab (in the menu bar near the top of the page) as a better way to manage files so they are easier to find without having to hunt for Sticky posts, etc. Please let me know if there are any issues. Note: I've set the Alpha-test releases to require forum registration here, but all other files are available for general guest download.

Hi,

I have just bought a Huawei P9 (Android 6.0 / EMUI 4.1) and installed Poweramp. I have used a third party theme on my previous phone (It's the material one), I have installed it to the P9 as well, but actually I can't see anything from third parties in the themes list. (Tried it with the official HD themes, too.)

The other ussue is related to the EMUI I think, the track info and the controllers are black on the notifications list.

Hoping to fix it very soon, this is my favourite music player, using it for 4 years!

Themes/skins are downloaded from the Play Store, is that what you are asking? Once downloaded, you can choose them from within PA.

Re: the notifications panel, the issue is most likely ROM related but you could try ticking Inverse Notification Color in Settings > Look and Feel > Status Bar/Notifications

Hi.  First let me thank you for your excellent player.

Just wanted to bring to your attention that when I upgraded to Marshmallow, Poweramp lost all permissions - Could not even read SD card and I had to uninstall and reinstall to get it to work again.  Would be good if you could fix this for future.  Maybe there was some way around it in the Android settings but the Android help wasn't very helpful!
