      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.

Yestarday Max told me that he working on notification for Oreo. Later he wants to upload github logs thats anyone can see status of update.

I guess we have to wait until Google runs out of letters and stops creating new Android versions after Z, so Max can finally release something.

P.S.: Internet Explorer users, you can fire up your browsers soonish.

Oh man. It's been a long time.

Like people already said, I'm worried this will turn into a vicious cycle. He optimises for a new version of Android or a new phone but when he's done, a newer version comes out and then it'll be "Let's just do this one real quick" and then when it's nearly ready, another newer version comes out. I'm not trying to sound too entitled here and I know that real life can fuck things up, but if something like this happens or is happening right now, do one version, push it, then do another. I mean, it says "You are now a beta tester for this app" for a reason. If I want to wait, I could just use the normal Play Store version.

Again, we don't really know what's going on (or at least I didn't bother to read all posts). Some communication would be nice, otherwise, this can be considered dead. My expectations for getting any updates in the future are basically 0 at this point.

Oh. We write the month of September, 5 Month, FIVE MONTH have passed since it was called "End April comes an update" Practically this after a base update of Google the Betas for the next version starts, so you can always say "I have to adjust" 

As long as I do not officially see what was done at all, I see the whole communicated as a last step still make some money. 

Slowly makes me the whole really sour, you pay money and is faked for it And it 's not about the few euros but about the fact that you can Say what you want, so a behavior is just embarrassing. I would be ashamed of people who have been loyal to an app for many years and have bought so to fool.

It's frustrating for sure.  i got fed up bought playerpro but their owner never replied to my posts about problems and they're updates are just about as slow as Poweramp and their forum is a graveyard.  I got bored and bought Jet Audio Player Plus and a sound plugin.  The player has some issues but they update frequently.

For all the wait , Can't say that I'm super excited about the new UI. Gesture control is a nice feature, but that seek bar just have to go. At least Neutron has became more stable with new updates. It's UI is also growing on me.

If max is already working  on Oreo, this means that he is done for nougat right? Why not release a v4 for stable nougat and for us to test it out

I don't know if he's working on Oreo, last thing he said (at the end of May) was he was making some minor adjustments and tweaks so the new interface worked correctly on all devices. But as I said, that was fourth months ago...

But you are among the administrators of Poweramp site so you gotta tell us about the update info. 

I purchased it more than an year ago and from then there is no any update.

He is the forum Admin. anmd not the dev. Max is the dev and as Andre stated max has not made any contact on progress for a long time, so there is no info that he has about the update schedule.

this thread is useless. If he ever woke up and released a new update he can create a new one..

This has to be one of the worst handled updates from an app developer. Disappearing for months on end and making impossible to meet ETAs. Max can't even keep his own forum admins informed on what's going on, I feel sorry for andrewilley having to try and keep a bunch of angry customers in line whilst not having much more information on the situation than them...

LOL, thanks for the sympathy, it does get a bit wearing at times. At least if it starts to get too personal or offensive I have control of the Delete Post button. :)

It's a bit sad. The countless hours of enjoyment of having a personal music player at one's disposal is unable to overcome impatient behaviour and self-entitled complaints. Instead of requesting for dialogue patiently and tirelessly, people now resort to accusations and passive-aggressive "improvement" statements on the developer's workflow and style. 

All these, while they are still enjoying their favourite music on the player he created which they paid for.

Such is life.

You are posting in the wrong thread (please see http://forum.powerampapp.com/topic/8735-requests-for-hi-res-support-please-ensure-you-are-using-poweramp-build-704-before-requesting/ for high-rez device requests) and you don't even tell us what sort of device you have - could be an Android-based TV set for all we know. Please provide the information referred to in the first post of that thread. Thanks.

I just realized there is a alpha build just yesterday after buying the app for at least a few years lol. Welcome the changes but I do miss my skins though.
