  1. That should be the default. Just a thought, but you haven't tried to install PA to your memory card have you? It should be on internal memory. Music files can be on SD Card of course, Andre
  2. By "return to the home screen" do you mean you want o exit Poweramp and return to your device's home screen, or to you want to return to the main player screen when listening to your new track? If the latter, that is default behaviour (although it can be changed in Settings > Library > Lists). To select an album for playback, just go to the album (or folder, or whatever you want to play) and tap the Play button at the top of the page. It's not hard, and it avoids having to long-press on an album title and select Play (now it's just a simple tap and then press Play, so easier than before). Andre
  3. Older PA did not use Album Artist correctly, which as I said might be causing your problem. Andre
  4. If it has already happened, you would need to clear the artwork cache and/or do a Full Rescan. Do you have Album Artist tags set properly n your files, as that should also stop this happening. Andre
  5. I don't use scrobbling much myself, but if I did it would be to see what songs have been played, not how many times one song was repeated in one session. But that's just my view, others may think differently. Andre
  6. Clear your Android cache, that should give you enough space short-term to update any apps that need more memory for the update process. Or delete a big app (something like Facebook) and re-install it afterwards. Andre
  7. I thought that 'repeat one track' was only meant to send the song title once anyway, as it's still technically the same song playing? I could be wrong though. Andre
  8. I've always felt that Explicit notifications are useful on streaming systems, or when downloading music, but once you've decided to actively place the song on your own device, it's rather up to you to decide if you want to listen to it or not. Rather like I don't see the point of the Thumbs Down button on a local file-based library, as if you don't like a song surely you'd just delete it rather than flagging it as something you don't like. I do like the idea of editing Title tags though. A decent batch tag editor should allow you to first filter by a field (such as your Explicit tag) and then you just modify all of the results currently being shown. Andre
  9. The queue would change matters. The 'currently playing' position would now be somewhere in the Queue view, not in Library > Album Artists, as you are no longer playing Album Artists. Tap on the album artwork within the player screen and you should be taken to the currently playing song in the currently playing list. Once the queue has finished and playback has returned to normal, you should be taken to the song in the Albums Artists view (or whatever category you were playing before anyway). Andre
  10. When you return to a list view after having listened to music for a bit, by design the view will be centred upon the currently playing track, not the previous one. Andre
  11. I'll move this to Feature Requests, because as Theo says this is intended behaviour for the current releases of PA so not a bug. Andre
  12. I believe it's an Android issue (thanks Google) not a Poweramp one. Andre
  13. Export Settings saves to internal device storage, not to SD Card. Some Android versions mess up the original default path to storage though - does /storage/emulated/0/ exist on your device? Also are you using the latest PA (build 841) as I think Max made some changes to try to bypass those issues. Andre
  14. Thanks for the request. Most of the development work on PA tends to go towards improving the accuracy and fidelity of pure audio reproduction, and I suspect that gimmicks like tempo and pitch changing which actually have the opposite effect tend to appear more as side-effects of other work. That's not to say it will never happen (and it has been asked for a few times over the years) but I doubt it will be a high priority either. Andre
  15. Normally that sort of thing will be caused by non-standard embedded tags, file formats that don't read cleanly, etc. Is there anything different about the ones that don't appear in the Library? What happens if you copy those files into a different location (copy them, not move them) and rescan? Andre
  16. I think this came about as a result of people complaining that when they updated one track of an album it did not update all the other songs in the same album. Just can't win I guess. Making it (another!) option might help though. Andre
  17. You can first export and the later re-import settings, see the bottom of the Settings menu. Andre
  18. Might be worth asking in the Skins forum in case anyone can do this via a skin? I know you can change the top-level icons, but not sure if it can be done on the actual content lines. In Settings > Library > Lists there is an to hide any Unknown Album wording (but not artist at present) or to use the filename as the tile, but not to hide the artist/album line completely. Again, there are skins that can do this, but probably only globally rather than on a per-song basis. Andre
  19. That's not a song-level list, it's a category list. The clef is used to symbolise 'songs' - i.e. the following number shows how many songs are in that drill-down category (e.g. there are 13 songs in the folder Ethnic/Shivia In Exile). Andre
  20. The only time you should see a treble clef is when opening the complete (huge!) All Songs list, as a treble clef is the icon for that category view (Folders, Albums, Genres, etc each have their own different icons). (There is also a tiny clef symbol used in each category view to indicate the number of songs that exist inside that group (Album, Folder, etc). But you should ever see it next to each track, could you perhaps post a screenshot to explain why this is a problem? Andre
  21. What file format? That sounds like a missing or broken contents table. How many files does this affect, could you upload one to test? Andre
  22. As long as you are in Folders mode when you start playing (put it in that mode before you start driving, tap any song to start playback) then it will play a folder at a time, in whatever order you have previously set in List Options. Don't start new songs playing with AA / voice commands though, as that will revert out of Folders mode. Andre
  23. Poweramp is exceptionally good at sorting and arranging music any way you like in its Library. Google voice commands are somewhat more hit-and-miss though, personally I rarely bother with them. Andre
  24. Yes, I'm assuming there is a clue in the word "ultra", that it blocks any background tasks during deep sleep. I would have thought that's rather the point of that mode. Andre
