  1. Every time I see feature requests pop up for pretty-much anything in the Category options / sorting areas, I keep thinking that this User-Customisable Category concept that I've been banging on about for years would actually achieve the desired result perfectly. I can only assume that my idea either does not fit in with @maxmp's long-term roadmap for PA, or it would involve a lot more internal re-coding than would appear to be the case just looking from the outside.

  2. You can purchase a license directly from the website rather than using Google at all (mainly aimed at markets where accessing the Play Store is difficult) but you'd need to get a refund from Google to avoid paying twice. You could try contacting Support at poweramp.maxmpz@gmail.com and see if there's anything they can do. However I would suggest uninstalling both the app and unlocker, reboot if desired, then reinstall both apps and make sure you have a live internet connection for the next 48 hours or so to be safe. Then the licence should not be checked again. Andre
  3. I use Folders sorting mode, and I simply prefix each folder name with the release year whenever I want an artist's work to be displayed chronologically. But I agree that sorting each artist's albums by Year rather than by Title within other categories would be a nice option Andre
  4. Poweramp requires something to be the designated as the current track, even when playback is stopped. Andre
  5. The ReplayGain feature requires the music file to contain a ReplyGain tag within the file's metadata (the extra data within the file that stores Title, Artist, Album, Year, Track#, etc information). This RG tag indicates the peak volume level that occurs within each track, so playback software can reproduce each track with the same peak level. If your files are not properly tagged, you can use batch programs to do it for you (such as foobar2000) which can also read and show you the currently saved data if you're not sure. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReplayGain for more information. Andre

  7. Can you roll back to the previous ROM update? Not always an easy thing to do though. Also, check out this post (which related to Android 10, but still worth a look): Andre
  8. Use ReplayGain. As long as your songs are tagged correctly, the maximum (peak) volume of each track will be played back at the same level. See Settings > Audio > Replay Gain. Andre
  9. Go to Account Settings (https://forum.powerampapp.com/settings/) and select the 'Edit Profile' link on the right and you can change / remove anything you have entered into your Profile fields (although I can't see anything in there?). You can also change your display name and password, but not your logged-in email address (if you need to change that, please let me know via PM) Andre
  10. Not really, @maxmp any ideas? I assume this is stock Android 9 by the way, not a custom ROM? Andre
  11. Only by adding your voice to the thread, as you have just done. Andre
  12. The POPM ID3 tag does support storage of both a rating and the playback count, see http://id3.org/id3v2.3.0#Popularimeter . The spec also suggests saving the email address of the person creating the rating, thus allowing multiple tags for different users in the same file which always struck me as a bit overkill and a potential privacy issue with shared files. This tag is neither read nor written by Poweramp at present though, as Max had concerns that not all file formats support it, and writing to audio files automatically 'on the fly' could be potentially dangerous and also cause playback glitching should the whole file need re-writing. There is a great third-party app called New Playlist Manager by the way. It can read tag ratings from files into Poweramp, and also write Poweramp's ratings database back into the individual files. See https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.flyingdutchman.newplaylistmanager Andre
  13. OP is asking for category changes (next/previous album for example) to be available by swiping up or down with your finger on the album art area, in the same way that you can currently go to next/previous track by swiping left or right. It used to be a standard feature in v2, but never made it into the v3 interface for some reason. Andre
  14. Presumably it is starting when Bluetooth connects? Does it start playing, or just opens the app screen? Take a look in Settings > Headset/Bluetooth for starters anyway. Andre
  15. You have tried removing the SD Card and re-inserting it I assume? There have been a few reports of this sort of issue with Android Q (10) beta versions due to changes Google have made to file access methods, but not with Android 9 as far as I'm aware. Andre
