Poweramp for Windows 8 phone

20 posts in this topic

Any chance of a Poweramp App for the Windows 8 Phone OS? Pleeeeeaaassse?

Both media player solutions currently available(nokia music and xbox music) are rudimentary pieces of garbage that does everything on training wheels. It also leans way to heavily on cloud based solutions. I miss the control and slick UI of Poweramp on my old Android. I'd definitely pay again for Poweramp Full if there was a Windows 8 Phone version.

Windows 8 is a pretty dope OS but I think it should trust it users a bit more and allow more granular control of the UI and media features.

Ditto here. What needs to happen to get Poweramp on Windows Phone ? Money? Programmers? Would love to participate in getting this going.

Another request here for Poweramp on Windows Phone. (Phone 8 for me) I just switched from my aging android phone to a new Windows Phone 8. Nice OS but the stock music player needs some love. I miss my Poweramp. :-( I'm missing the gapless playback and general usability of PA.

Not sure if enough people on Windows Phone are familiar with Poweramp, but I'd gladly prepay on something like Kickstarter if that'd help.

A Poweramp port (or rather full code re-write) has already been confirmed for iOS (iPhone/iPad). I should imagine that a Windows Phone version is plausible after a first release on iOS.

Max has stated somewhere that he will begin work on other platforms after the release of Poweramp 3.0 on Android. Cheers :)

I agree with them, I just moved from Android to Windows... with how poorly designed the current available music players are, you could make a killing.. I miss my power amp, time for you guys to send some lovin to us window 8 mobile users!

Well currently Max is working very hard on Poweramp 3.0, then I think, if he is ready, it'll be iOS first and then maybe WP8 can be worked on.

Depending on the architecture for a Windows 8 device (ARM vs Intel) that would mean a possibility of Poweramp coming to desktop PC too since Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 are near same convergence. So for users in the other thread requesting a desktop PC version of Poweramp this prediction of mine could come as some comfort....

...However, after Powermp 3.0 on Android, then iOS is next, then after iOS then likely Windows 8/Phone and I reckon that's the roadmap dev order that Max will follow. I did write 'reckon'. Thanks

Another hopeful here. I loved Poweramp on my EVO 3D but I just switched to a Lumia 920 (love this phone! A much smoother experience, no lagging at all) but a great miusic player is missing. Like a previous poster said, you would make a killing with Poweramp on wp8. I'll even help you get the word out and promote it on windows phone websites. Please get this going.

Please...do it! I have 2 phones...Sony Xperia Tipo Dual with Android 4.1 wich i use to listen music with Poweramp...and a Nokia Lumia 520 with Windows Phone 8...guess what...Lumia 520 doesn't have any equalizer...XBox Music doesn't have equalizer...and Nokia Music doesn't have an equalizer too...so... Poweramp for Windows Phone 8 is very welcome...i do like crossfade between tracks just like fm radios...and good equalizer!

 

PLLEEEAAASEEE DO IIIITTT!

WINDOWS PHONE NEEDS Poweramp!!! It remains to be the only app that I have ever paid for. I loved this app on android, but have since switched to windows phone 8. While I am fairly satisfied with WP8 (other than not supporting flash player) the media players are mediocre at best. I would be more than willing to pay for the app again in the windows phone market. Please do whatever it takes to get Poweramp on WP market.

Also if you could integrate voice commands into the app that would be pretty boss.

I just bought my first WP phone on Friday and already Poweramp is missing for me! :-)

I hope it will be available soon for WP too!

As has been said, the main focus of development is on Android, and once 3.0 is out and stable, maybe an iOS version... I think Windows Phone is a lot further down the pecking order at the moment. Sadly Poweramp does not have the human resources of a large company to just throw people at new versions.

When is 3.0 scheduled for release?  Will it have import/export features? Will it install over 2.x and retain ratings, equalizer settings, etc?

Sorry, this isn't a project, it's a wishlist by Windows Phone users. There are no currently plans to do anything along these lines as far as I know.

Hi. I thought of passing by here and manifest my wish to have this app ported to Windows Phone 8/10. 
I currently have a Lumia 930 and am willing to happily purchase this software.

Thank you.

With Microsoft releasing new tools so that developers can easily port their existing Android code to create apps for Windows maybe we can rally some more support for a Windows port. Doesn't seem like that it should be that involved.
