  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. Now you are being pedantic, "should" and "could", in the future I will be more careful. of my wording I will endeavor to follow your advice and be more respectful. I'm am so sorry to have stepped on your toes.
  8. Let's agree to disagree. I do know enough about coding to know that what I am asking for is not terribly difficult. Yes, I do know what a sycophant is. I won't belabor the point.
  9. You are still missing the point. V1 and V2 had many options that have been removed from V3. Making the UI look better doesn't preclude having options. Don't know why you and your fellow sycophants don't want options but you sure seem willing to tell others to give up their desires. But carry on with your goofy diatribe.
  10. Again, a person who hasn't followed the conversation too well. This all began with the OP saying the beta was a failure, I chimed in and said I agreed. Then I backtracked and said, that Failure was to harsh as the beta wasn't a failure but that there where things I didn't like. Then someone said we (people who don't like everything about the beta) should STFU. So I started getting snide. Is it childish, maybe. But all along, I have said that the detractors didn't want to remove things others liked but to give options to all. This reinforces what you have said "others might have different priorities or desires than you..", I fully realize others have different desires, which is why I ask for options. But instead some keep telling us to STUF and accept what we are given. So then I become crass. Childish, maybe, but it appears I'm dealing with children. It appears you are another of these ignorant individuals that think they have the right to tell others to STFU. Have I once said Max must do these things? No, not even hinted at it. So how does that make me a dictator?
  11. So arrogant and self-entitled because we are hoping to get things that existed before and maybe some other things we have been asking for for several years. I'm happy that you are willing to bend over and get fucked without complaining, the world needs sheep.
  12. That shows how ignorant you are, I was dissing you and the people like you who think this is important information at this stage of your music listening. The bit rate is important when you are buying music, after that if you need to see it on the screen for every song you're a little dim. Same whit the visualizer, this is for drug addled individuals. Programmers put this stuff in their programs because there are simpletons like yourself who like to look at bouncy things. It isn't a comment on Max, it's a comment on you.
  13. You seem to miss the point too. First Moon+ Reader isn't supposed to look flashy, it's an eBook reader. Second, the point I was making is that having options is not difficult. If you look back at V1 and V2 of Poweramp there were a lot more options, many of these options were taken away. Who know why, only Max does, but I can't think of a good reason. Having the option doesn't remove the Material design. You're as rigid as Imperfection, you believe that it is an all or nothing situation. And what kind of idiot refers to a coder as a code monkey and also implies that they are not competent nor obedient.
  14. I would like you to back up all the assertions that you have made that the majority of users are happy with the interface. Just because people don't speak up doesn't mean they are happy. I currently live in a country where they don't say anything even when they really dislike something. Poweramp has around 50 million downloads and the full unlocker has around one million. Do your really think that all 50 million or 1 million are all satisfied? You're dreaming. And just because the vote was to prioritize updating the UI doesn't mean they voted to receive what ever was delivered. You and others may like what you have received, others would like some changes, that doesn't mean we think Max did a poor job. Also, I am willing to bet that the majority of those users don't even know about this forum. I came here a year or so ago and there wasn't much activity, so I didn't visit often. Then I signed up for the Play Store Beta Program and expected to receive regular updates. That never happened, there was one update and that was it. All the other updates came through the forum, which I wasn't aware of. This is not really the best way to do beta testing, either the Play Store beta program should have been eliminated or it should have received the same updates as the forum. But that is a separate issue. My point is that you make a lot of assumptions because you have been coming her regularly, unfortunately you are only one of millions and you seem to want to speak for all of us. I think it is you who should piss off. If you had a brain, you would realize that removing an item from the display is not difficult, it has nothing to do with logic. Hiding something is not the same as asking for if (Imperfection cries) Then change the sample rate, spin in circles, resort the list by artist, change the tone by 10 octaves end if No, this is what it entails If (Imperfection cries) <span>"Show a crying adult."</span> else <span></span> end if Yup, very complicated.
