  1. That's... annoying. When 100 artists seem to fall into place, and then you have 2 that decide to ruin your neatly organized library.
  2. Then again, I assume it might not be a bug. It sure feels like one though. Thinking of it, does this occur with artists names starting with "The%20" as well?
  3. There is a bug that's pestering me and I can't help anymore but report it. Let me start off by saying that I am not sure that the "Artist list" view is the only place where it occurs, maybe it's in album view too, have not tested it. Here is the bug: I first noticed it with "A Perfect Circle" and subsequently with "A Tribe Called Quest". The first one will be sorted at "P" and the second one will be sorted at "T", ingoring the preceding "A%20". Can I have any hope this will be looked into? Or that it won't show up again in Poweramp v3 please?
  4. Great, thanks for the reply. Will do just that when I get around to it.
  5. Hi Andre, just installed v3 but it's not working for me. I wanted to report this in the v3 testing official thread, but I see it is closed. I see the Poweramp icon with alpha mark on it, I tap on it and nothing happens. Running Android 7.0, Global MIUI 9.5.4 on a Redmi Note 4x.
  6. So do you think it will get implemented in that case?
  7. Great. I will install the v3 alpha on my phone to check it out, thanks, I did not know v3 is already so far in the development process.
  8. Create a playlist for every folder? Do you think that is... something that every other user should do? And manually? Also, I fail to see how what I am suggesting is overloading the ui...
  9. Just that... could we have the search function on the main screen? Or even better, on all screens ?
  10. Currently, the Albums view is showing the albums as thumbnails, sorted by artist. Great start already since this means the behaviour is already in place. But I'd like to suggest a much cleaner way, for much easier navigation through the entire list of albums: In the "List view" from "List options": if albums were shown as a sublist of an artist, which would be shown as a header. By example, imagine how your list of contacts in your phone is shown by letters, with the letter as header. Same thing but Artist names and Albums names instead of Letters and contact names. Adding the option to show/not show thumbnails so that you can fit more on the page would also make a huge difference I guess why I'm suggesting is for a clean view which would be easier on the eyes, more minimalist and would also happen to fit more on the screen. It would it turn make navigation better in terms of both faster and easier to keep in perspective as end result.
  11. The two options one currently has at this date when looking for a song are very... bland? Let's look at the current options: "Play all" will play all songs in phone in alphabetical order: It does not take into account at all the fact that the next song is from a different album, by a different artist, in a different genre, etc. Ugh "Play filtered" will play the one, or the multiple, that popped up in the search query. Generally one, since generally only one pops up when you look for a song. Why the feature would be great: The way it works now makes up for a very frustrating search experience for a music lover: In order to play that song and the remaining from its respective album, you have to search for it first, see what album it is from, then manually navigate to the album, and play the song from there instead having this happen by default behaviour, or, by option really, which brings me nicely to the feature to be suggested itself: 1. I therefore suggest a "Play from Album", or "Play from Folder", or both as separate options. Why both? Because A folder can contain a mix of songs from different albums/artists: All (standard) albums are folders, but not all folders are albums. 2. If only one could be implemented, naturally the sensible choice is "Play from Folder". Again, All (standard) albums are folders, but not all folders are albums. 3. The default behavior for each would be: "Play from Folder" - would play the remaining songs in that folder after the song found in the search query, in order they are found in that directory: alphanumerically by definition. In the case of albums, of course this will end up happening by track number. "Play from Album" - would play the remaining songs in that album after the song found in the search query. If you think this would be a beneficial addition, I kindly ask you to upvote it.
