Before I get started, please note that this is not a rant (as we all understand that you have many requests coming at you regularly from your user base) but rather another reminder about ratings. I as well as many other users feel exactly the same way. The only "major" thing we all really agree on is the need for rating (and possibly play count) syncing to/from tags. Worst case scenario, a compatible sync format for importing/exporting ratings the way several other music apps have gone. Rating music is how many of us maintain our playlists as a song's rating can change as often a person's tastes. Rating based sync and play lists are some of the most commonly used by users with large databases and the most convenient way to maintain these ratings is on the go, as we listen to each song. Sitting down in front of a computer to rate each song is just not feasible for most people. This is a feature that has been "in the works" for a couple of years now and many of us are beginning to wonder if it will ever be implemented as the date has slipped multiple times. As ikjadoon mentioned, many of us would pay good money to either buy the app again, or purchase a separate license for this feature. We can all appreciate that you have significantly improved the application over the years and at no additional cost to existing license holders. Would it not be prudent to then make a new licensed release (separate from the 2.x release) so that you can have a new influx of cash to possibly temporarily hire additional developers to help implement this (and perhaps a few other highly requested features)? I know I personally would even be game to simply participate in a kickstarter fund for certain features. Having a separate fund for each major feature (or feature set) that people can donate or pledge to with funding goals and commitment dates would be an excellent way to help accelerate development and prioritization for new Poweramp features.
