  1. The new folder list "List - Compact" is great, now if we could get the list to display in this format. Not the colors, but the items in the list. If the list is sorted by Artist then the first row displays the artist tag, then the track tag, and finally the album tag and for those who like it the track length and file type. I hope others like this layout and that it could be implemented in a future beta. <View android:id="@+id/group_one" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="80dp" android:background="@android:color/darker_gray" app:layout_constraintLeft_creator="@id/listLayout" app:layout_constraintTop_creator="@id/listLayout" /> <ImageView android:id="@+id/album_art1" android:layout_width="80dp" android:layout_height="80dp" android:contentDescription="@string/image_description" android:src="@drawable/image1" app:layout_constraintLeft_creator="@id/listLayout" app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="@id/listLayout" /> <View android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent" /> <TextView android:id="@+id/meta_artist1" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_marginStart="4dp" android:fontFamily="@font/abeezee" android:textColor="#ffffff" android:textSize="18sp" android:textStyle="bold" app:layout_constraintLeft_toRightOf="@id/album_art1" app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="@id/listLayout" tools:text="@string/tag_artist1" /> <TextView android:id="@+id/meta_title1" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_marginStart="4dp" android:fontFamily="@font/abeezee" android:textColor="#ffffff" android:textSize="18sp" android:textStyle="bold" app:layout_constraintLeft_toRightOf="@id/album_art1" app:layout_constraintTop_toBottomOf="@id/meta_artist1" tools:text="@string/tag_title1" /> <TextView android:id="@+id/meta_album1" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_marginStart="4dp" android:fontFamily="@font/abeezee" android:textColor="#ffffff" android:textSize="16sp" app:layout_constraintLeft_toRightOf="@id/album_art1" app:layout_constraintTop_toBottomOf="@id/meta_title1" tools:text="@string/tag_album1" /> <TextView android:id="@+id/meta_time1" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_marginEnd="4dp" android:layout_marginStart="4dp" android:fontFamily="@font/abeezee" android:textColor="#ffffff" android:textSize="16sp" app:layout_constraintEnd_toStartOf="@+id/meta_delimiter1" app:layout_constraintTop_toBottomOf="@id/meta_title1" tools:text="@string/tag_length1" /> <TextView android:id="@+id/meta_delimiter1" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_marginEnd="4dp" android:layout_marginStart="4dp" android:fontFamily="@font/abeezee" android:textColor="#ffffff" android:textSize="16sp" app:layout_constraintEnd_toStartOf="@+id/meta_file_type1" app:layout_constraintTop_toBottomOf="@id/meta_title1" tools:text="@string/tag_delimiter" /> <TextView android:id="@+id/meta_file_type1" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_marginEnd="4dp" android:layout_marginTop="4dp" android:fontFamily="@font/abeezee" android:textColor="#ffffff" android:textSize="16sp" app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="@+id/meta_time1" app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="@+id/listLayout" tools:text="@string/tag_file_type1" />
  2. No, just not paying attention, I installed V2 of the skin.
  3. Get Mp2Tag and use the Extended Tag editor to add lyrics.
  4. 1. When the Static Seekbar is off and the Pro Buttons are off the Main Player does not display. 2. List > long press > Play is not an option 3. List doesn't keep the position in the list, always returns to the first song. 4. All Songs List displays the Album name before the Artist.
  5. It seems that Poweramp was overhauled as opposed to being given a face lift. Everything in V2 worked great except the shuffle and repeat buttons could not be disabled . With V3 some of the logic was removed or altered. Please forgive my use of "should", I use it only as an indication of my opinion not as a demand. It would be great if there were options that allowed everyone to get most of their preferences. Things I like about V3 1. On the player screen the art work displays correctly and generally the screen looks better. 2. The menu shortcuts are at the bottom. 3. Shortcut icons are clearly understood. 4. Elapsed and remaining time display. 5. Lyrics display is much better, although the lyrics window should either hide after the track finishes or the lyrics for the new track should display. 6. Alpha scrolling in the track list. Things I don't like about V3 1. The seek bar. 2. Swiping can't be disabled and their function changes depending on the screen displayed. From the track list swiping takes you to the library list, swiping from the library list takes you to the player, swiping on the player changes tracks and you can't go back to the library by swiping. If we have to have swiping, left to right should, in my opinion, cycle between, player, library, track list and swipe up/down should change tracks and honor the users shuffle setting. 3. More buttons have been added that can accidentally be activated/changed. My feeling is that I would set these things once and rarely if ever change them again so why have them on the screen?! 4. The lists are harder to use and read. I would prefer Title, Artist, Album (in that order) on separate lines with the same font size and maybe 2px of padding between lines. And I would remove the length and file type. 5. Art work in the lists looks nice but limits the number of items in the list resulting in more scrolling. With the list set to small, 4 tracks are displayed initially, then after scrolling 7 tracks are displayed, V2 displayed about 10. 6. List sort keeps defaulting to sort by Title. 7. New buttons in the lists for Shuffle, Play, Select. 8. If PA is running in the background and the phone locks, unlocking it takes you to PA not where you were when the phone locked. 9. Queue allows duplicate entries, before there was a setting to prevent this. 10. Queue used to have a setting to resume the queue if all items weren't played, it may still work this way but it isn't clear. 11. It would be nice if the alpha scroll on the right of the list had a bit more padding between letters. 12. Track selection in the library used to be simple - our setting for what happened used to be "play the song" or "place it in the queue" and long press gave you more options. And a notification displayed if the track was added to the queue. Now when you click on an item, if the setting is add it to the queue, there isn't any indication that your click was recognized. 13. Notification - Navigate to to the list used to take you to the song list with the currently playing song, and the song had a seek bar below it, now it takes you to the high level library list. 14. Previously, there was a setting to hide the meta data, which is now gone.
  6. I wouldn't use either rating system, but if I had to choose I would choose the 5 star rating.
  7. The default sort of lists appears to be by Title, when I change the default to something else it stays as long as PA is not closed. If PA is closed and then reopened then the sort is returned to the default.
  8. As long as it's an option, I hate visualization. Battery life is always paramount and I want to listen to my music, not watch bouncy bars on my screen. Maybe I don't do enough drugs and alcohol.
  9. Exactly, "Shuffle Songs" should only shuffle songs in the library but possibly (god I hope not) the playlist or queue list . Shuffle All then would seem to imply that the shuffle would affect, library songs, playlist songs, and queue songs. The dev or moderator should confirm the logic. There used to be a very clear setting for the queue - Ignore Shuffle. The current design is unclear. There should be a setting to explicitly say Do not shuffle the Queues and another explicit setting to say Do not shuffle the play lists. I personally can't imagine wanting to shuffle either of those, but we should have options to make everyone happy.
  10. I haven't had the current beta long enough, but that has been my experience with all prior versions - the same songs are played repeatedly. It seems that the shuffle logic includes some logic that says if this song was played before play it again, and again, and again. lol It would be nice if the logic was something like this Count number of songs in the collection. Randomize that number. If the selection matches a song that was played in the last (user defined time) month, then skip the song, and play the next song.
  11. I'm glad they play the queue and playlist in order, but I think you need to enable Shuffle All if you want the Queue and Playlist lists shuffled.
  12. There are a lot of nice changes, but... When PA is playing and the screen locks, pressing the power button displays the standard UI with all the possible settings, I would like an option to just have play, pause, previous, next – like before. And no swiping. What if someone picked up my phone and started adjusting all my settings?! When PA is playing and the screen locks, using fingerprint unlock takes us to the PA player, I want to go to the last app that was active when the screen locked. I want to be able to disable the visualization, timer, repeat, and shuffle buttons. And have the option to hide them, individually, from the screen. It is too easy to accidentally change them. I really dislike the thumbnails in the lists. I would like to be able to disable them. The lists show the track time and type 3.48 | mp3. I would like to remove this information as it is not useful to me. Knowing the time isn’t going to affect my decision to play the song and all of my music is mp3. The lists display the Artist and Album information on one line, I would like to display the information on separate lines and match the font size to the Track size. Many of my songs have long album names and long artist names. On the main screen, the Artist and Album information share one line, I would like to display them on separate lines. Frequently these two items are very long. The Queue used to have a setting to ignore the Shuffle setting, now there is a button in the Queue list for shuffle but pressing it keeps displaying the same thing “Shuffle Songs and Categories”, there isn’t even a display tell what the setting has been changed to. Can we get the old setting back, and remove the button from the queue list, please? Can we remove the Shuffle button from the Playlists? It is too easy to press the button and accidentally change the setting. I’m not sure what the little triple arrows on the pro buttons <<< | >>> are for as they don’t seem to do anything. Can we get an option to disable and hide them? I don’t like the new seekbar, can we get an option to display the old one? I would like to be able to hide the meta data, bit rate, sample rate, file type. Again, not useful information, plus all my songs are 160 bit, 44,000 sample, and mp3.
  13. Well past experience tells me not to hold my breath. Personally, I would have been happy with a few minor improvements, better font choices, better widgets, and the ability to disable repeat and shuffle buttons in the main UI. Visualizations are nonsense, I listen to music, I don't stare at the blinky lights (thankfully, we can disable it). This is similar to live wallpapers, really you clear your screen so you can meditate on your wallpaper? Nice parlor trick. My desktop is covered with the app I'm using, I guess developers should make their apps transparent so we can see that animation while we are trying to read email, play a game, watch YouTube, etc. It's about a sensible as having a strobe flashing in your eyes while you are driving.
