  1. I know you can see it in the folder/album/artist, however, given my previous example, I want to play all my Pokemon soundtrack Battle! music. And if I have them all added, if I want to swap from one battle track to a specific other one on a different album, I can't easily do that. It's counterintuitive. And I know the list will repeat, but, as I mentioned, it's an "organized random" instead of truly random. It goes and plays the "random" tracks in the same exact order once it shuffles back. Windows Media Player, Winamp, MediaMonkey, built in music players on all Android devices I have owned, and PlayerPro, have all had this plug-and-play option - you don't even need to make a playlist to do so. You shouldn't have to make a playlist for that. I understand Poweramp wants to set itself apart, but if doing so it hinders users and takes away from flexibility, it's not a good way to go about doing it.
  2. So I understand that the current queue is a "set it and forget it" option. I'm trying to find a similar queue feature to Poweramp, where, for example, you'll add in songs A, B, C, D, and E. You play all five and it goes back to A. That I've been able to figure out how to do...sort of. But what if I want to shuffle it? Let's say A-B-C-D-E shuffles to B-E-C-A-D. Nice and randomesque, and I can replicate that - once. With PlayerPro, it would go, using my above example, B-E-C-A-D to, say, A-D-B-C-E. With Poweramp it would go B-E-C-A-D straight back to B-E-C-A-D and play it in that organized random order. Also, say, if I search for a term (in this case from the past I've searched for Battle!) I can play all results with that, but I can;t easily open up what's playing when it's playing so as to choose which Battle! track I'm playing. This could likely be resolved with a "Now Playing" that would take priority and stick those in there. Pretty much, I want a classic "now playing" that takes priority over everything else, shuffles randomly, and when it gets to the end, does a reshuffling and keeps playing. That way I can swap what I want on the fly without adding and removing from a playlist.
  3. That did it for me. I had the folders deselected but it wasn't rescanning. Now all I need is a truly random dynamic queue and it will be a 5 star app for me! Thanks for the advice!
  4. I don't know if this is an information request or a feature request - I'll find out soon enough. I've noticed questions about shuffling and queues have been done to death, but I could not find an exact answer to what I'm looking for.

Folder, playlist, album playing...that's fine for me. It's just the sporadic "throw it in and shuffle, listen for a while" that's either lost or I am just ignorant how to do it. One other small issue I have is I have my ringtones folder showing up which was auto scanned. I changed the folders to be SD card only but the internal Ringtones folder still shows up. Is there a way to remove folders without deleting them? Thank you much!
  5. Note - I am the idiot in this equation. All I'm really looking for is, for example, a way to have say two albums and three songs from a third album playing at once. I could then set the thing to repeat just those, and shuffle through those, and be happy. No saved playlists or anything like that. I haven't had any luck with the Enqueuing feature - if I try to go back, it just takes me to other music I have listed. And I don't want it as a saved playlist - I guess I'm looking for a feature to lock in the music you set up so no other music will play, and that you can do on the fly. Am I missing something? Or is there no way to do this?
