  1. Ah, so it's nothing to do with technical specs, features or functionality, but you prefer the paint job. You should completely uninstall PA v3 and any unlocker app that you've installed from Google. Might even be worth deleting the /Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/ folder. Then install PA v2 from the downloaded .APK file for build 588 and go through the website-purchase validation process (make sure you have the correct email address set up as an account on the phone, and use the ID supplied in the confirmation email, etc). See the FAQs for restoring purchase status, e.g. http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/324284-restore-poweramp-purchase Andre
  2. In a situation like that, the Play button should cause playback to commence with the first song in the first folder in the list (with Shuffle mode Off, and Repeat set to Advance List). Then when that is complete, the second folder in that list will be played, and so on. In the above case, all of the contents of "2014. Substances EP" should be played, then all of the contents of "2014. Vacuum EP", etc. Andre
  3. Poweramp only stores and displays certain common tag types. I think Composer is used, but not Work, Conductor or Ensemble. Andre
  4. The 'Play Next' suggestion was not relating to the queue, but instead would cause normal playback - i.e. non-queue - to start playing a new track (just as if you simply tapped on the song title in the list) but only after the currently playing song had finished. Once started, the new song would then become the current playback position and category. Andre
  5. Although v2 is obsolete as far as newer Anrdroid platforms are concerned (and not guaranteed to work forever), for the time being you ought to be able to install and verify the licence on v3, then uninstall v3 and reinstall v2. The licence should just pick up again (you'll need to turn Updates for PA off on your device though, otherwise the store will continue to try to update for you). As you have been issued a refund by Google though, I suggest you might want to buy the version direct from the website instead, which will avoid further auto-updates and should be simpler to validate. See https://powerampapp.com/buy-poweramp/ Out of curiosity, what is the reason you need to use v2 ? The newer V3 should do everything that v2 does, and a whole lot more besides, with a more versatile and easier interface. Andre
  6. The only way to install a skin is from the Play Store or from an APK file (if the developer will provide you with one). If Fiio restrict you from doing that though (they sound like Apple!) then you need to take that up with them - or root your device and regain your own control of it if they refuse. Andre
  7. I don't think .pla format playlists are supported by Poweramp, just m3u, m3u8, pls & wpl. I'm not sure about converting them, but M3U and M3U8 are both very simple text-list file formats. Andre
  8. I think you may find the third-party app "New Playlist Manager" helpful, might be worth a look. Andre
  9. I guess I use PA differently to you. When I create a playlist it's for a specific reason and once created and populated with songs, I rarely edit it much. For regular listening, I use the normal playback categories. Andre
  10. Inserting an album into a playlist is performed using whatever specific List Options setting is in place when you carry out the action. So if you have the songs level set to be sorted by Track#, that's the way the songs will get added to a playlist too. Yes, a separate new option in the Re-Sort Playlist menu is what I was suggesting too. Andre
  11. To be honest, while I can see the point of adding multiple songs to one playlist, I can't really see why you would want to add one song to multiple playlists at the same time. Andre
  12. @maxmp has mentioned in the past that the Album Art area in lists is also used for multi-selection of items (via long press), so removing the artwork would cause other interface issues. Perhaps sometime in the future, it might be possible for the main app to highlight the whole line of each selected entry when choosing multiple items, rather than using a tickbox at all? My file explorer app does it that way, and it works very well without using up any space from the filename or obscuring any content. Andre
  13. That's nearly a year old, might be worth updating to 845 and seeing if your issue has been resolved in the meantime? Andre
  14. That would make a lot of sense to me. Plus Composer, for those who use it. Some tagging formats (such as Vorbis) allow multiple instances of the same tag too of course, which makes the task easier still. Andre
  15. There is a setting to exclude short files (notification audio, game sounds, etc). Make sure it is disabled in Settings > Library > Ignore Short Tracks. Andre
  16. Moved to Bug Reports forum for v3. Andre
  17. I assume this would be due to 'one star' meaning the same as 'thumbs down', i.e. a disliked song, so it would not appear in a top rated list. You could use another list type (e.g. "All Songs") and set the List Options to sort by Rating, then you'd get 5-stars at the top, then 4-stars, all the way down to 0 (unrated). Andre
  18. Poweramp has never generated PLA files during export, only M3U(8) ones. Poweramp's M3U8 files are very simple, they just consist of a series of individual lines containing the path and filename for each song in the list. That's what you get if you Export any internally created playlists to files. When you talk about "pasting PLA files," do you mean copying such a file over to a new location so Poweramp can see it, or using a text editor to cut'n'paste the actual lines of text from one file to another? Andre
  19. Many search engines require at least three letters, allowing searches for one or two character returns too many results. I assume search provider that PA uses has a similar restriction. Andre
  20. Huh? This feature was added recently, see the last few posts above yours. Andre
  21. This option had been asked for repeatedly by many users for years, and finally made it into the app recently. Andre
  22. Comma separation would not always work, as there are some artist/group names with commas in already - "Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young" for example is regarded as a group name, not four artists. Separators should probably be same as for genres, which are ";" or "//". Andre
  23. Playlists do not have any album structure per se, they can contain songs from anywhere. Thus re-sorting a playlist can give somewhat random results. There may be one or more songs from any given album, so defaulting to sorting by Track# would be a bit odd. Perhaps Max could add an extra option to the list for 'Album/Track#' ? Andre
  24. Which version of Poweramp? You are posting in the legacy v2 area (build numbers up to 588) for which there is no further planned development. Andre
