      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. I third/fourth/whatever this. I just bought a Pioneer to replace the Android Tablet that had been in my car for the specific reason that it had Android Auto. Google Play REALLY sucks. I would be very happy to pay for a mod or pay extra or whatever to get this functionality.
  2. Well, I DO get the songname and artist and even album name, but I was really hoping to be able to browse and see what's next, etc. That's the main reason I paid for this thing.
  3. Damn. OK. Thanks.
  4. So I paid a bunch to have a (supposedly) really good Pioneer stereo installed in my car. It's not an Android tablet, but I figured I'd just stream via bluetooth from Poweramp 703. This stereo's bluetooth was supposed to let me browse the music on the phone from the stereo. The problem is, it streams fine, but when I try and browse the collection, I get a box with a folder icon that says "temp Player" instead of the folder name which is "music". There's nothing to browse in temp Player as that folder doesn't even exist. It actually works fine with Google Play Music, but I absolutely detest that player. Does anyone know of a way I can resolve this? Thanks Steve
  5. I understand I can go to settings->Headset/Bluetooth and toggle Resume on Bluetooth, but the toggle doesn't seem to work. I've checked and then unchecked the option and then restarted my phone, but as soon as I turn on my bluetooth, music starts. Not that big a deal - I can just pause it, but I figured I'd mention it. Steve
  6. Oh. Good idea. Thanks much! Steve
  7. Nope. Can't find it. Although actually, when I'm listening to music via bluetooth from my phone to the car stereo, the steering wheel buttons DO work. I meant getting those buttons to work with Poweramp when it's installed and playing music that's on the car stereo itself. The stereo gives me a menu of limited options to program those buttons, and none of those options give me the capability to program the buttons for anything other than the basic stereo features. Steve
  8. OK, I'll look again, thanks. I've tried, but I probably missed something. Thanks.
  9. Album/playlist displayed via bluetooth. And/or ability to contol song (pause/ff/rew, etc) via media buttons. Especially steering wheel buttons on Android tablet car stereos.
  10. OK, that makes sense. Thanks! Steve
  11. Now I'm even more confused. Why then does that music app on the Note 4 just called music display a list? Not that I doubt what you're saying at all, I just don't get it. That app (with no name or help menu) is FAR inferior to Poweramp in every way I can think of. Except that one single way.
  12. I've got an Android tablet/car stereo. I leave my phone either at home or at work a LOT, so I started playing music from my car stereo that was stored on my phone via bluetooth. The music app that came as the default on my phone (a Galaxy Note 4) is just called "music". (It's a green music note on a circular white field with a blue border) shows the name of the song that's playing via bluetooth plus it shows a list of the songs on the album/playlist. That's a REALLY nice feature. And that is where the nice features of that music app end. The biggest drawback that it has (to me) is that it won't play music gaplessly. I listen to live and continuous music all the time and those pauses where none should exist ARE irritating. There are a bunch of other drawbacks, but that (to me) is the biggest one. Poweramp has none of those drawbacks. The problem is, I can't seem to find a way to get Poweramp to display that songlist. I actually got desperate and curious enough to download and try a bunch (10-12) other music apps. Compared to Poweramp, they all stink, and none of them show that list anyway. So, I either do without the list I really like - or I listen to music with gaps where no gaps belong. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated! They really would. Thanks
  13. My car stereo is an Android tablet. I downloaded and installed Poweramp from the play store and it works fine, but I can't get it to respond to the pause and track forward/track back buttons on the stereo or on the steering wheel. Any ideas? (it's already set as the default mp3 player). Thanks Steve
  14. It's possible that this is already an option and I haven't been able to find it, but I just upgraded to a Note 4. Before I had a chance to download and install Poweramp, I paired my new phone with my car stereo and the default Note 4 music player started. It's FAR inferior to Poweramp, but it has one really great feature. The songs in a playlist/album were listed over on the screen, so I could tell what song was coming up (or after that, etc.) That's a REALLY nice feature, but I haven't been able to duplicate it with Poweramp. Am I missing something or is this a possible feature to come? Thanks Steve
