  1. @Capndirk The dialog is shown if Poweramp was killed during playback. This shouldn't happen on fully Android compatible devices, but in reality it happens due to the "battery" optimizers or some other app or device forced shutdown events. Poweramp will generally work OK, but it won't store (obviously) last playback position in the last played track.

    The problem is that Google keep moving the storage goalposts with each new Android release

    Androids 5-9 were stable in this regard, in Android 10 the paths changed due to (enforced by Google) the "new" Storage Access Frameworks (SAF) API requirement to access files.

    For SAF you first hit that Enable button, find the desired storage and optionally a root folder and hit "ALLOW..." button. Depending on ROM, additional menu / Show Internal Storage selection is required + side menu should be used to select the target storage.

    Poweramp then either uses default Music/Downloads/Playlists folders on storage by default or selects the user defined folder. As previously, subfolders in the allowed storage/folder can be further checked/unchecked without extra permissions step.

    Google initially wanted to force this (quite slow and weird) API for any file access in Android 10, but later backpedaled to allow direct file access in Android 10 with Android 11 being the first version enforcing SAF. Poweramp is already optimized for SAF nevertheless.

    You can enable old way of accessing files in Poweramp via Settings / Misc / File Access Legacy Mode.
    I also recommend this in case device is "missing" core Android system file picker or external storage component.

    PS Many quotes here:
    - "new" SAF - SAF exists from Androids 4.x but was enforced only for USB-sticks previously
    - "missing" file picker - usually disabled via apps like Package Disabler or "optimized" out by ROM authors
    - "optimized" - I don't think removing critical core part and breaking updated apps is an optimization. Granted, non-updated apps built for previous Android SDKs will continue to work, but updated apps will be broken

  3. @Jack07 Poweramp doesn't need notification access permission as it doesn't "Read" other apps notifications.

    You can check how Poweramp processes headsets (and similar, e.g. lockscreen or bluetooth) commands in Poweramp Settings / Headset/Bluetooth / Last Processed Commands. If nothing appears there when you click buttons - system doesn't send events to the app, but events can be also ignored due to some settings or due to other causes.


  4. @Birdman if you purchased before Summer 2018, you can reuse license on the another device, provided same (google or email) account. For the newer purchases we changed conditions so it's strictly per one user device starting from Summer 2018 (but you can move license to the new device if you upgrade, etc.). The website purchase is the most versatile in any case. Thanks!

  5. There is little point in adding list mode just for albums - if ever implemented, it should be available for all track lists. Poweramp stores these options by list type, so if that new "album art-less" mode is selected for Albums, it won't affect other categories.

    The main reason there is small album art in the "compact" list mode - it's a placeholder for the checkbox. But probably for this new mode checkbox could be moved to the right so it doesn't overlap labels in the beginning (I don't want to add extra item animations for the checkbox there).

    Thanks for the request.

  6. Unfortunately I can't reproduce this issue (as for builds 874 release, 875 beta). And this feature is not device/ROM dependent. Treble works just fine for frequencies 10kHz+. If you can't hear it:

    - your device can't play frequencies >10kHz
    - your audio source doesn't contain frequencies > 10kHz
    - you can't hear 10kHz+
    - hacked version has no equalizer/tone
