      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.

OMG i hate setting up playlists!

6 posts in this topic

i moved to a new phone and it's a mare. it's a total PITA using Poweramp to do anything with playlists - won't even let me move 1 song up 1 place in the list.

i have to use winamp to setup the new playlists on the new phone, then import them info Poweramp but i made a single mistake in the song order and can't fix it in Poweramp or winamp so have to delete the playlists and reimport again in the right order.

there has to be an easier way than this!

As far as importing and exporting playlist, there's an option for that in the folder setting in the new versions of Poweramp

i tried that and the playlists were moved over but of course the songs were in a different location. i assume it's due to the sgs2s sd card being linked to (root>external_sd>) and in the note 2 both storage devices appear as 2 separate spaces. the playlists were therefore empty :(

all fixed now via winamp sync and then importing into Poweramp.

p.s am i missing something or is there really no way to move a song up in the playlist order on the phone itself?

You can move songs up and down if you create a playlist then just choose playlist you want to play (in order to do this just tap on music sign in the top of main Poweramp screen, choose playlist and in playlist you can drag songs by taping and hollding it by the two triangles near time length of the song.

tried that since that's how doubletwist does it. i go into playlist>my gym playlist> but whether i tap or hold, the same thing happens. i get options coming up like enqeue,play add to playlist etc. no option in there to move.

For a real easy way to create playlists, try my app "Playlist Manager" on Google Play.  It maintains playlists for android but has a special "export to m3u" feature. All you need to do is tell Poweramp to also scan the folder playlist_manager. Several options are available too such as relative or absolute path, unix or windows format.

If you were to loose your m3u playlist, simply create it again using my app. Apart from this, it has some other nice features and makes the creation of playlists a sinecure.
