    Sorry, it's not in 2.3 - these are OEM (closed non standard) extensions. It's not possible "just" add support for 3rd party player which playing outside stock media player, as it requires custom low level bluetooth socket implementation.

    Can you please send me a track (one will be enough) which fails to be shown by PowerAMP with embed album art to poweramp.maxmpz gmail.com?

    This can be related to embed art size, PowerAMP will automatically display album art within some limits, i.e. > 200x200 px and up to 1.5mb in size. If embed album art is not within these dimensions, it won't be displayed automatically, but will be still available for manual selection in Select Album Art.

  3. Thanks for the feedback.

    I assume, you referred to hierarchy folder mode, right? In PowerAMP v1.x, "play all" means "in the selected list play first available song". In PowerAMP v2.0 I removed some redundant (as I think) menu items. Basically, for lists like albums, plain folders, playlists, etc, there is no any benefit in having "play all", as it's absolutely the same as going into the list and clicking the first song in there (same numbers of clicks).

    For hierarchy folders though, the first song can be in a some deep folder, thus "play all"/"shuffle" actions can be really useful in this mode, as it reduces number of clicking.

    Let me know if you meant exactly this (hierarchy mode).

  4. First, thank you all for the feedback, it really helps.

    GUI: when the Equalizer is viewed in landscape mode, the lower section of it, where the knobs are placed is corrupted with these being split or sectioned, as per below. The screen size on SGSII is standard VWGA.

    Right, this is scrollable view. As I see there is a confusion across early adopters, this is pretty standard android style scrolling container (with the gradient indicating that there is something to scroll to). I'm considering redesigning this screen into two tabs (like Folders/Library tabs, but for Equ/DSP, the problem is that custom presets include tone settings as well, thus dividing it into two screens is not so great).


    DVC makes it louder on most phones (some, like samsungs, mess too much in their sound driver, thus it's not so noticeable, and some, like newer HTCs cut that functionality completely from their ROMs).

    As for Equalizer, it's bit-to-bit the same in non-DVC mode (assuming, limiter is off and stereo x on zero). In DVC mode it allows much greater basses (or whatever frequency is available in equalizer) and tone control has more +dB, but still nothing forces you to turn thumbs to max, you can get almost the same sound as in non-DVC (1.4) mode from this mode if you wish.

    (Almost, as bass tone frequency/q-factor was changed).

    "Limit" is a soft limiter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limiter). This is sort of fast dynamic range compression which helps to avoid overload when too much equalization added. This mostly helps non DVC mode though.

    There will be up/down (way much better than in v1.x) swipes in Beta 2.

    As for skins, I have many android devices around here for testing purposes, and guess what, none of them match their screen brightness, so on some it will be darker, on some lighter, not to mention personal screen brightness setting. Skin dev is done on AMOLEDs mostly, and it looks there the best. Anyway, PowerAMP v2.0 offers (will offer really soon) more skin variety via external/downloadable skins.

    There will be certainly "classic" skin (like v1.4, at least for main UI) :)

  5. Thanks for the request.

    Newer HTC phones do that (srs + other effects like those beats) via "closed" APIs, still it's possible to hack into it, the stability is the concern - HTC is free to change these APIs with even minor ROM update, and this will immediately break it in PowerAMP, if implemented.

  6. Poweramp-2.0-build-430-beta-1.apk

    Known issues with the beta 1:

    - settings will crash if Poweramp installed on SD Card (move it to main memory)


    - will be posted later (please refer to completed TODO here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=172)

    What's not in this beta release (but will be in final 2.0 release, mid October 2011):

    - 4x1, 4x2, 2x2 widgets

    - couple of extra skins (external apk/jars)

    - widget pack compatibility

    - a bit better skins for tablets. 2.0 release works on most Android 3.0+ tablets, still, skins are not optimized for large screens in this release (planned for 2.1)

    - help update

    - skin SDK

    - settings backup to sd card/restore deferred until 2.1
