  1. If a playlist .M3U file is changed, PA should notice the modified status and rescan it. Assuming the location it is saved in is scannable anyway. It might be that a syncing program is not setting the file correctly though, try editing the new file on the device. or moving it with a file explorer app, and see if it is detected then. Andre
  2. I guess that would really be up to a skin designer to produce, the main general=purpose interface is optimised for regular devices with 5+ inch screens. Andre
  3. Currently only supported in certain categories (Album, etc) but I agree it should be in most of them. Probably not in folders/filenames though. Andre
  4. I assume your device is using a very old version of Android (pre 5.0), otherwise please use PA v3 instead of the legacy v2 app. If you purchased via Google Play, you need to be using the same Google Play account on any device that needs to use that licence. It will not work without Google Play present and logged in. If you purchased from the website, you need to have the email account that you originally registered with set up on that device, and enter the details from the confirmation email. See the FAQs, e.g: http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/324284-restore-poweramp-purchase http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/323571-unlocker-without-google-account http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/323561-apm-response-no-valid-google-accounts Andre
  5. There is a mini-player at the bottom of the PA Library screen, is that what you mean? Otherwise, there is a mini set of controls in the notification status drop-down, or you can also put a Widget on your home screen. Andre
  6. Sounds like the device is not allowing PA to continue running properly while it is asleep. Check in PA Settings > Misc to ensure Wakelock and Keep Service are enabled, and also check in the device's power saving menu to ensure PA is excluded from any power saving features. Andre
  7. Presets can be assigned to songs, albums, genres, etc. Whatever values you set will also remain as the current listening EQ setting until you change it, or until PA finds a song/folder/genre/etc that has its own saved preset that overrides it. Could you have accidentally assigned it to a broader group than you intended to? It would be worth deleting the newly saved preset, then reset the current EQ to defaults, and if the default setting then sticks. Andre
  8. Then as I said, please can you post the command sequence that your device is generating. PA normally only does what the BT commands tell it to. Andre
  9. This is intended behaviour. When you select your desired mode, it is meant to stay in place until you decide to select a new one - or you choose a playback method which requests a new one, such as tapping on the icon to play an album in Shuffled mode for example. Andre
  10. Please upload the results of Settings > Headset/Bluetooth > Last Processed Commands to show what commands your device is sending. For the record, the similar touch controls on my Parrot Zik bluetooth headphones work fine for volume, play/pause, and next/prev track. Andre
  11. If you have it set to resume on BT connection, that's what it will do. To avoid this happening, you would need to turn this feature off and press the Play button manually when you want to listen in the car. Andre
  12. There have been a number of threads on this subject, but no universal answer. Generally, I believe many head-units have this problem as they don't allow the app to shut down properly before powering down. Steering wheel controls depend on the interface built-in by the manufacturer, and are not guaranteed to work fully with third-party apps. I know the dev ( @maxmp ) has said he plans to get a generic car head-unit at some stage for testing purposes, as though PA is an app designed for use on phones, using it in a car is becoming a common request. Andre
  13. There is no such thing, only settings which work best for your equipment and ears. If there was a universal 'best' setting, then that would be programmed in advance and there would be no user-controls at all. Andre
  14. If another app (e.g. YouTube) requests access to audio playback, then PA has to be stopped. Avoid using other apps that require that sort of access while listening to your music. However just browsing normal non-audio websites in Chrome should be fine. It might also be your device being to aggressive in power-saving background apps, it's worth checking that PA is listed as an exception to power-saving modes. Also check that Wakelock and Keep Service are enabled in the Settings > Misc page. Andre
  15. You can choose to start PA at either the Player screen or the main Library view. (Settings > Look and Feel > Start at Library) Then you can configure the default library top-level view to be a specific category - e.g. Artists - if you wish. Go to the Library top-level view and tap on the three-dots menu icon. Select List Options and then long-press on the category that you wish to become the default entry screen (Artists in your case). Andre
  16. 'Now Playing' and 'Play Next' are defined by the library category and sorting orders that you have chosen to listen to. You can however choose something outside of that 'normal' listening order by using the Queue. Simply find the extra song (or songs, or even full albums/etc) that you want to listen to, long-press on the title and tap Add to Queue (">>> Queue") and the songs will be enqueued ready to play after the currently playing track (or can optionally be set to play immediately if you prefer). Once all of the enqueued songs have been played, PA will return to your regular chosen playback category wherever you left off (again, options are available if you don't like that end behaviour). Andre
  17. Export Settings (which includes EQ presets) and copy the file over and re-import on the new device. Andre
  18. From what Max was saying, I assume it's a new interface option that is being introduced within Android 10, so no it won't be on older versions of Android. I could be wrong though. Andre
  19. I just loaded up my ancient Galaxy S3 which still has PA v2 installed on it, and album art download doesn't seem to work via wifi on that either (it used to). All I can guess is that whatever API was being used to scan for images 4+ years ago is no longer available, and while @maxmp has updated all the code in v3 in the meantime to keep it compatible, v2 will no longer be able to access cover art via downloading (other than embedded artwork or images from your own gallery). If anyone else is still using v2 and artwork downloads are still working for you, could you post here? Andre
  20. Max has said it will be available from Android Q (sorry, Android 10). Andre
  21. I used to have a Note 3, but I really dislike the more recent Samsungs with those curved 'edge' displays. When my Note died on me I had to make a quick purchase, and chose the new Samsung A70. It's only a mid-range device, but has a huge 6.7" FHD+ SAMOLED screen, under-screen fingerprint reader, 3.5mm headphone socket (a must for me too), three cameras (OK quality, nothing spectacular though), good 128GB / 6GB memory, massive 4500mA battery with very fast 25W USB-C charging, two-SIM cards plus an SD Card slot. It does everything I need of it, except wireless charging really (but the charging is so fast and the battery so good I don't miss that). The only downside is there is very little development community. It is rootable now, but there has been no ROM development that I know of. However for £369 (UK list price) it's a bit of a bargain. Andre
  22. I think you already have, but perhaps mention it in the Bugs forum too. Andre
  23. It's just started happening to me after an Android Auto update, previously I was getting album art correctly on the car headunit without needing to see it on my phone lockscreen too (which I don't want). Andre
  24. As long as a reshuffle occurs (e.g. stop and start a new shuffled session) then any new songs should be shuffled along with everything else. I'm not sure whether the act of finding new songs and scanning them into the library forces a reshuffle or not though. Andre
