      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 and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. Other than waiting for the next best-test release of Poweramp (hopefully within the next month or so), you could try switching DVC mode off as that sometimes helps. Otherwise, you'd probably need to roll back to your original MIUI 8.5 setup. Whether you think that's worth doing for just one specific experimental feature in an alpha-test app is up to you of course. Andre
  2. Playlists are not dynamic, they are editable though. As of now there is no option to change the playback order, other than manually or via another app like TheoKlink's New Playlist Manager. So for now if workarounds don't suit you, it is here in the Feature Requests topic. Andre
  3. As you saying you are trying to revoke PA's permission to access the SD Card? Why would you want to do that? Andre
  4. You can manually sort playlists, but not auto-sort. I guess the fact that it is a list of individual files (rather than albums, artists, etc) could make sorting less flexible. Andre
  5. I use them all at various times (although rarely Shuffle List / Shuffle Songs together, I just use Shuffle All). I suggested ages ago to make tapping on the Shuffle and Repeat icons an on/off toggle feature, and long-pressing for the list of choices, but not even my feature requests hold any greater sway than any others I'm afraid. Andre
  6. No, why? If you don't want to use Folders mode, just don't use it. Andre
  7. Is your Android 8 final release or a beta? The 704 build of PA had a few minor optimisations for Nougat which was just starting to appear at the time. You could also try turning DVC off. Andre
  8. is this an official 7.0 update or a third-party ROM? Definitely worth uninstalling and re-installing; yes, your licence is tied to your Google account so should be valid to re-download just as you did before (even on completely new devices) without having to pay again. Andre
  9. That bit is already there. When you press Info/Tags from the songs list, tap Album Art to change it without first playing the song. Syncing at present can be done via a third-party app, New Playlist Manager. Andre
  10. No it isn't, but if you are too impatient to wait then there are plethora of other players out there if you want to try them in the meantime. Andre
  11. Nope, PA is not dead, but the current development work rebuilding the entire user interface from scratch is proving a very time-consuming task! Andre
  12. The alpha (there is no beta yet) does recognise FLAC files, well it recognises all of mine. Are they in the same location as other files it does detect for you? Andre
  13. The next beta release should be more compatible with newer versions of Android, when Oreo gets an official release anyway. The current alpha release 704 was built just before Nougat became official I seem to recall. Andre
  14. Correct, ratings are not imported from music files (as yet) they are only user-created inside Poweramp. Once you import a System Playlist, it becomes a Poweramp internal list and is no longer connected to the system version, it is a one-off import. Changes that you make within Poweramp will stay local to Poweramp and will not show up in the system music player (unless you export them, back to playlist files). The New Playlist Manager app from user Theoklink can help with managing both of these operations though. Andre
  15. Most of these are feature requests, but there is already a third-party app called New Playlist Manager than can export/import your ratings to avoid losing them due to a phone needing resetting, etc. Andre
