  1. Hmm, but don't you guys use a headset? I mean most headsets (like the Galaxy S2 standard headset) support the function you want. So theoretically there is no need to change the volume buttons in order to skip tracks. Just my opinion. If you're talking about handing the phone in your hand, then I can understand your request somehow. By the way: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.itbenefit.android.Minesweeper&hl=us This is Minesweeper. It supports the feature to use the volume keys for something else. I ain't no developer but you guys might be able to find out how it works.
  2. Hello guys, I think I created a similar thread for that some months ago, but I ain't sure no more. So sorry for creating this one. PowerMP is really a great app and I'm so happy that I bought it. However, please fix this volume button problem that is unfortunately an Android problem! It's such a pity that the volume gets increased/decreased so inaccurately when you press the volume buttons. PowerMP has a master volume bar and an extra volume bar. These options give users a perfect possibility to adjust their favorite volume. Well, but many users don't hold their cell phones in their hands when they're listening to music. Pressing the volume buttons is never a problem, though, but it's almost useless since it's so inaccurate. It'd be perfect if PowerMP had an option that lets you adjust how many percent the volume gets increased/decreased when you press the specific volume button or for example to set up the volume steps, 64 instead of 16, or 32 instead of 16 etc. Please, we ain't no dogs that could hear any theoretical quality loss since someone mentioned 16 was a perfect number to adjust volume, it just ain't! If that was true, all the MP3 players out there would have hearable quality loss cause they got more than 16 volume steps. Honestly guys, I can't see that ugly green Android volume bar no more - it makes me angry and sick! All those Apple guys laugh at Android's ridiculous volume system We should teach 'em a lesson! I got a Samsung Galaxy S2 with Android 2.3.4 and the newest version of PowerMP and the unlocker of course. P.S: Sorry for being emotionally charged - it just ain't my day today... Thanks!
  3. Hi friends, Congratz regarding V 2.0. I have two questions/requests: Is it possible that you remove the standard function of the volume buttons? There is an app called Minesweeper (the game with the mines). The newest version of that games changes the volume buttons so that you can use them for other games. I thought it might be possible that Poweramp can also change their functions. The standard Android volume bar is pretty lame because it is too inaccurate. Poweramp 2 features much better volume control. If the volume buttons could control Poweramp's volume, it would be great. There is also a tool called "Fine Volume Control 2". You can check that too. I'm not sure if you devs can benefit from such programs in case you're able to see the source code. The other question: Is that new volume bar in Poweramp 2 the same as the master equalizer? If I press the volume buttons so that the lame android volume control comes up, I see that the volume bar of Poweramp changes too. So if I change the Poweramp volume bar myself (without the buttons) it looks like I can change the volume very accurately. Is this really true or just fake?^^ P.S. My cellphone: Samsung Galaxy S2 with Android 2.3.4. Thanks
  4. Sorry for "bumping". I hope I won't get banned for that. Ok, another question: Is it possible that the two volume buttons (on the Galaxy S2) don't decrease/increase the system volume but the volume of Poweramp? Of course it might take longer to change the volume because the steps are really fine, but it wouldn't be a problem for me. I can always reach these two buttons very simply, so if it's possible that Poweramp changes their function, it will be great. And thank you again for this app!
  5. HI friends, I'm the new guy. Today I installed a trial version of Poweramp 1.4 build 387. I really like this app because it has its own volume control that lets you adjust the volume very accurately. Now I'm looking for a new headset that has an integrated multimedia control. (For example the Etymotic MC2 - don't know its quality, though.) As far as I know Poweramp supports such buttons as "Next track", "Previous track", "Pause" etc - at least there is an option for that. However, some headsets also give users the possibility to change the volume, digitally (some people say analog volume controlers aren't good because there's some loss.). Now I wonder if they'll change the global volume of the cellphone or the volume of Poweramp. The global volume sucks because it goes from 0 till 15 by single steps (1, 2, 3 etc.) I would like to increase Poweramp's volume control because it's, as already said, really really fine. Is this possible and can you recommend some specific headset to me? Thank you very much!
