      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 am still using Poweramp as my main player but I too am shopping around. I don't want the next version of Poweramp to be a gift- I'd like it to be a sustainable and frequently updated product and am willing to pay for it. I would love to pay for continued development of what is still the best player on the market. I think the fact that major updates are free is bad for all of us, including the developer. On my PC I pay for Jriver Media Center (after the initial purchase of $50, major releases are ~$25 usually every year) and for Roon ($120 a year, mostly for the terrific back end music database it uses to help organize and view your own library). I sure as hell am willing to pay for Poweramp updates and am kind of getting the tired of the updates being viewed as a 'gift'. Charge us for the software (we know it's a hell of a lot of work) and release.
  2. Posting an update to say that this is no longer an issue in Android O Preview 3.

  4. Putting this here to make sure it gets noticed: Bluetooth controls to play, pause forward and back don't work in build 704 and Android O. Bluetooth controls in other apps work fine. I have tried to disable then re-enable controls in Poweramp with no effect.

  6. For my part I think it's somewhat unfair to expect much from a 2$ app and I think even in its current state Poweramp represents tremendous value. On my desktop I paid $80 for my music player/manager more for every version number upgrade (.i.e. version 20 to 21, not 20.1 to 20.2). At that price i expect frequent updates and feature additions and guess what, that's what gets delivered. It's hard to expect much from a $2 phone app, especially what is essentially a niche app. I think Poweramp should cost more (perhaps not $80)- and then maybe complaints about updates would be more valid. I am also in agreement that a good UI and eye pleasing design is functional, not mere eye candy. A frustrating, busy and ugly design makes an app more difficult to use (especially while driving, working out, etc). The app must also do its job of course but I think it's proper to expect good quality on all levels. But this gets back to the silly prices we expect of phone apps: time, quality and cost have to be balanced- when one facet is out of wack the other facets seek equilibrium.
  7. Perhaps has part of the UI redesign Android Auto support is possible to add? I appreciate all of the work put into this app!
  8. I'd like it to display the order newest to oldest that the album was added to Poweramp. Even with the use file system time stamp option I get the same result. BTW, in Folder view all of the folders are in the expected order. Also of note: Artist view shows the expected order, but All Songs (both with Date Added / Reverse selected in list options) do not.
  9. When in album view and I use list options By Date Added and Reverse, Poweramp displays albums in a seemingly random order. If I uncheck the Reverse option the albums display in an expected order. As the Reverse view is my preference it would be great if this bug could be fixed.
  10. Unfortunately this did not work for me.
  11. Running the power amp beta on a Nexus 6p with N. Playback of MP3 (320 in this case) over bluetooth is randomly garbled or sounds highly distorted at times. I have tried this to two separate devices: Ford Sync in my truck and a Braven-X speaker. It seems all tracks i played experienced the same issue. I did not experience this is in the production release of Poweramp.
