  1. I agree, "Advance List" is hardly a user-friendly way to phrase it. Glad I could help you anyway. (I wonder how many other users out there never knew how to do this?) I did suggest some minor wording changes to the Repeat icon a few years ago - basically a more logical sequence of "Play Track", "Play Album/Folder/List", "Play All" and then "Repeat Track", "Repeat Album/Folder/List", "Repeat All" - which the dev agreed at the time was a good idea. However as with so many other minor (and major) requests, we're still waiting for the elusive version 3. Andre
  2. From memory, if you delete from a playlist, it will just remove that track from the list. You need to be in one of the direct file playback modes or views to delete from the SD Card. Also do you have the Delete Action enabled in Settings>Look and Feel>General? Andre
  3. To solve that, set the Repeat icon (bottom-left of the album art on the player screen) to "Advance List". Andre
  4. I always navigate by folders too, but I'm happy to open/close them for viewing the contents as and when I need to I guess - mainly to avoid an almost-unmanageable list of 4,000+ titles. Andre
  5. Ah, you're talking about the folder view rather than just the playback order. Sounds like you're saying you'd like a full view where all folder contents are expanded by default. Maybe an 'Expand All' tickbox for all view modes would be a good idea, so whether you are looking at Folders, Albums or Artists, you would see the full contents of every subgroup in one long list. Andre
  6. I'm pretty such this is on the planned features list. Unfortunately, the whole planned features list has been planned since sometime in 2011, and currently appears to be dependent on a new audio engine that Max is working on first before any of it is going to happen. And "this year" is the closest anyone has seen to an ETA for that. Andre
  7. Hopefully Max will be along at some point to let you know if this should work, it's not something I've tried as I always just use a proper file explorer. Andre
  8. Go to Poweramp Settings > Folders and Library > Music Folders and untick any folders you don't want to be included. Personally I tend to work the other way, and I only tick the one top-level music folder that I do want. Andre
  9. As this is more of a file transfer task than an audio playback one, why not use a proper file explorer app? (I use ES File Explorer, which handle Bluetooth and LAN/SMB file transfers fine). Andre
  10. It does? Darn, that'll be why I sometimes find it's still playing in the morning and my battery is half-flat even though I set the sleep timer. I suggested ages ago (must be 2-3 years?) that it'd be nice to have an 'automatic stop' option, where you could set Poweramp to always automatically stop playing after (say) 60 minutes of no user interaction. Just tapping and releasing pause, or a quick volume down/up, would reset the counter to zero again. My TiVo DVR does this (set to 2 or 4 hours), as did my audio player on my old Windows Mobile phones, and I found it really useful. Andre
  11. I can confirm this bug. And you know, I've used the Sleep Timer function pretty-much every night for several years now, and I've not even noticed that icon until now! I guess I just activate it and turn the screen off so would never see it. Andre
  12. Quite. There are so many relatively small fixes and minor feature requests which would go such a long way toward placating the general level of user unease and frustration that sadly now seems to surround Poweramp (at least if these forums are anything to go by). It rather feels as though the current Poweramp project has in effect been largely abandoned, and all efforts are being made into building what will be basically a new product that looks much the same. I don't know whether I can speak for any other users, but personally I don't actually want a wholly rebuilt system and new audio engine, I just want incremental features to be regularly added to a product which I already like very much, but which unfortunately has seen no really substantial updates for 2+ years (see the changelog). I guess the problem is there's just not enough Max to go around, it's hard for a one-man-band to do everything when you start to find yourself looking after what is now a multi-million users project. Andre
  13. I wasn't trying to defend the delay, merely suggesting one solution which might work for you in the meantime. With a decent batch encoder and LAME you could probably automatically re-encode large amounts of music in one go. But as you say, it's a lot of work. I can't disagree with your frustrations of seeing popular feature requests being effectively dismissed for years though; I'm in the same boat as you, and many of the other dedicated users here, over a number of requested features. Andre
  14. Well there are lots of ways, but basically just go into Manage Apps in your phone's Settings menu, click on Poweramp and choose to Uninstall. Andre
  15. Personally, I don't really use tags much at all, apart from Title and cover art. I organise my music by folders and files, so I control how it works rather than the system trying to do it for me. But then that's pretty-much why I went down the Android path rather than iPhone in the first place. However none of the above is a reason not to support Album Artist for those who need it, as you say it's another very long overdue feature. Andre
  16. Or just use MP3s like everyone else? With a good encoder and a decent bitrate you'll be hard-pressed to tell any difference on a phone. Andre
  17. Make sure that only the folders containing your actual music files are ticked within the Poweramp Settings > Folders and Library > Music Folders list, not any folders which only contain videos, ringtones and notification sounds. Andre
  18. For me, the Song Title scrolls, but the second line of smaller text (artist/album/filename/whatever) does not. Andre
  19. As long as you have got Repeat mode set to "Advance List" (yeah, I know, perhaps not too obvious wording) then that's how Poweramp should normally behave - you start playing the first song in the first subfolder, and it will then carry on playing the contents of each subfolder in turn until you tell it to stop. Andre
  20. Have you tried ticking Settings > Folders and Library > Lists > Sort by Filesystem Date/Time ? That might help. Otherwise it sorts by the date/time that Poweramp added the tracks to its Library (which will all become the same time/date after a Full Rescan). For random playback of whole albums (but still playing all of the tracks in each album in the right order), on the Player screen tap the Shuffle icon until you get to "Shuffle Lists, Songs in Order". Andre
  21. Or perhaps you are impatient, as you only posted your request 10 hours ago? But no, you're right it can't be done, "/extSdCard" is part of the full path on Android, just like "C:\" is in Windows. Andre
  22. But it's not a media player, it's an AUDIO player. You want a media/video player there are tons around (I suggest MX Player) Andre
  23. Not possible at the moment I'm afraid, but as you say it would appear to be a useful and fairly simple request. I've been asking for just this sort of feature for more than two years now (as have other users) so I wouldn't hold your breath on this one... Andre
