  1. When viewing the Recently Added songs list, tap the three-dots menu icon and in List Options you can choose how the list should be sorted (including by filesystem date, or date added to library). Andre
  2. Yes, if you have excessively large images (over 1000x1000, I seem to recall?) then I'm pretty sure PA will scale them down to reduce memory consumption. Mine are mostly 500x500, although a few are a bit larger. Andre
  3. Just enter your friend's email address as the account, and make sure they use the same account details on their phone. They will get the confirmation email, so let them know to expect it. Andre
  4. Normally Albums appear first in the search results. I wonder if you've got them disabled in the Search List Options ? Tap the three-dots icon in the search screen and use List Options to choose what type of results you'd like to see, and in what layout. Andre
  5. As I said, that's by design. There is a background process to allow audio playback while you are doing other things with your device. It does not need the main player interface to be loaded in order for it to continue. Just press the pause button, much easier than messing around with swiping things away from the recent tasks list. Andre
  6. What skins are you trying to use? As long as you are using v3 skins with the v3 app (or v2 skins with the v2 app) then I've not come across any major issues. You obviously can't use old v2 skins with v3 of the app though, as the interface layout, icons, controls, textual content, etc were all completely updated for modern devices - that would be a bit like expecting an old VHS tape to fit into your new DVD player. Certain Huawei ROMs had problems with loading some specific v3 skins a while back (thread) but I think that has been resolved now, could that be your issue? You don't give much info to go on... Andre
  7. Press the play/pause button in the app or the Status Bar Notification. If you just exit from the user interface by pressing Back or Home, playback is meant to continue in the meantime while you do other stuff (there is a service which runs in the background to ensure this). Andre
  8. Very odd, must be something strange with the way your sync software is writing the file back so PA is seeing it as a new item. Does a FULL Rescan (bottom of Settings > Library) make any difference? Andre
  9. How large are the images in question? PA caches artwork up to a maximum size (it would eat too much memory to cache huge images for every song). Andre
  10. The above are now added to the Knowledgebase FAQs list. Andre
  11. I think notifications, rings, etc still occur, they are just silent. You would need to disable the ability for calls to be received at all, I guess putting the phone into Flight Mode would do that. Andre
  12. No idea, try removing it for a bit and see if your problem goes away. Andre
  13. I think this is going round in circles, and it was a five month old question anyway. I'm going close to close comments now, before this turns into a flame war over whether to reverb or not. As I said, quite honestly it's down to personal choice. Andre
  14. This is not something Poweramp can do. I don't know for sure, but rather doubt any apps on the Play Store would be allowed to do this for security/privacy reasons - but perhaps some root apps might? Andre
  15. As I keep saying, it's personal choice how (or if) you set your reverb settings, everyone has their own opinions varying between wanting to hear the music as the band and studio engineers intended it, to making it sound like you are listening to music in an echoey cathedral or stadium. Your earlier post and link were helpful in outlining what reverb does to your music, and thank you for sharing it. Andre
  16. Adding from Search is different, that adds anything to the queue in title order. However if you first tap on the Album title in the search list you will see all of the songs displayed in your chosen Album sorting order. Long-press and select them all (just tap the 'All' button) then use the ">>> Queue" button to add them to the queue in the displayed order. Andre
  17. I use TagScanner on my PC, but there are other good batch tag editors around too - MP3Tag is another one often mentioned. Andre
  18. Restore the Settings > Audio > Output options to default. There is also an option in Settings > Advanced Tweaks to mute the internal speaker, which can come in handy with some high-res output modes. Andre
  19. Ah, if you only changed the filenames then the tag-based info won't alter. The filenames can be whatever you want them to be, often useful for esoteric sorting (maybe adding a year or disc/track numbering to the start of a name for example), but the title/artist/album/artwork/etc shown in PA's lists will be taken from the embedded tag metadata hidden inside the files. Andre
  20. Try a Full Rescan (bottom of Settings > Library) Andre
  21. Not sure then, it could be down to the custom ROM. Andre
  22. It does look a bit squished to fit it in, but all you are trying to show are the dB numbers under the sliders so it should do the job fine. Andre
  23. That's mobile/wifi data usage, not RAM storage. But PA should not be using 1.5GB of data in a month anyway. Andre
