      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.

I rolled back to v2 because in my opinion it sounds better too. Cant see the point to update if I will not use milk.

Anything which keeps the screen on all the time will drain the battery pretty quickly. But as has been said, it's optional - I have my screen turned off 99% of the time while listening to music.

Im trying again with the new version. The audio quality is very good like in the v2 if I not use the new effect reverb (sounds horrible) Why to have it....???. A limiter like in Neutron would be very much better to have.

My battery life is longer when I stream videos from YT then when using the milkdrops... ;(

You don't apply all Instagram filters either just because they're there... but more options are always a good thing IMO.
Songs with an already epic and wide soundstage can sound even cooler with some reverb, like a live recording for example.
It adds a certain flair, definitely not recommended when listening to music casually.

There already is a limit function in the EQ, in fact it has been there for ages...
