Similar issue here. Have loved Poweramp for 3 years and now this licensing issue nearly made me trash it for good. Was using it to as a fill in playlist at a gig I was running on friday. I always chuck the phone on silent and airplane mode to prevent any interruptions to the music, and immediately got licence verification issues - after 5 mins of silence ended up having to play my tunes on amazon mp3 player - oh the horror! Please fix this - seriously though have not had a single problem with the app before and I love it, but whoever has fiddled with the licence phone home code needs to be taken outside and shot. Wij.
