  1. You can't expect DRM-free unlimited downloads for a subscription fee. From a business perspective a user could sign up for one month of prime and download thousands of songs and then end their subscription. People always feel hurt by DRM. They should on individual items they buy outright eg an album or movie. However, in terms of unlimited subscription type services there is no place for DRM-free (unless you disband copyright).
  2. It'll be all guess work by the apps I figure. I've been using doubletwist a bit with airsync and with that organising my directories for me and translating the paths. The doubletwist player is terrible mind so I use Poweramp which can see the doubletwist playlists (as it wonderfully saves them as m3u). The difficulty comes with the fact editing the lists is only one way sync (doubletwist desktop to phone). If you add a track to the list in Poweramp it gets lost the next time you sync - a shame. So I've added my "favourites list" to a Poweramp playlist which i edit and play with and leave Pow
  3. Sounds like you're tracks might not be tagged properly and/or are placed in a single folder and you're in folder mode, or you've activated one of the list shuffle modes. http://lifehacker.com/5994516/how-to-take-a-screenshot-on-android A picture is worth 1000 words
  4. NB I'd also suspect the fault lies with WMP rather than PA.
  5. Copy the m3u playlist onto your PC. Right click and open with a notepad app. Now look in the app for find and replace. Put in the find box ..\ and replace with nothing. Select replace all. m3u relative paths use no leading characters see http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/M3U
  6. Looks like WMP is using relative rather than absolute paths. By using the find and replace feature of a notepad type program you should be able to sort this out. How is your music saved on to your phone? What is the folder structure? I recommend "es file explorer" as an android file manager to view your folder structure and find the paths in full.
  7. I'm a big fan of Poweramp and it's genuinely made listening to music on android feel so much more controlled by me rather than by the company that made it. It reminds me a lot of the early days of winamp. I also like these forums and think it would be great if there was an off topic thread/area. I don't want to go and post random information in common talk if it's going to get in the way of app discussion.
  8. If this is added I'd appreciate an option to switch it off
  9. Well there is the option of turning up the preamp in the equalizer. Over do it and there may be distortion but a small boost may get it to the level you want.
  10. Sounds like tagging could be to blame - the xiph flac FAQ is talking about how flac files can have ID3 tags put on them but have their own tagging system "flac tags" http://xiph.org/flac/faq.html#general__tagging Do you have any way of identifying if there is a discrepancy between type of tags of files that work and those that don't?
  11. I know this is a feature of Poweramp and deserves a fix but I still recommend telling Poweramp to use in folder images then saving the art in the folder as AlbumArt.jpg or using album art grabber to pick your art. Keeping it "open"/under your control
  12. Similar to the requests for spotify support, I really don't see this as a useful feature. If you're keeping your music in the cloud then that is your priority - not control of your music in terms of location/format/quality/eq. You've locked yourself into a system but want the best of both worlds. Get your music downloaded so you've got your files and control of them. Buy mp3s from Amazon as (even though they are a cloud system) when you click download in the app mp3 files come rather than a cached/encripted mess. If you use a cloud system you gain space & subscription music but the price
  13. I don't think this is a worth while feature. Using the spotify app should be sufficient.
  14. Interesting to hear about musicbee. I'm not sure I'm keen to install another app to fix this but it's a cool idea. I figure it's harder to program this than you say cookie. Indeed you've had 2 years to create a 3rd party solution yourself. It's difficult as a customer sometimes-you feel entitled because you spent money and in some respects you are. However, you have bought the app "as is" -meaning you are only entitled to the features advertised and no more. The fact you get updates with new features (and not just bug fixes) is actually rather generous.
