    To be correct.....he only wrote that it will be probably tonight, not that for sure a new version be released tonight.


    But for some reason a lot of people erase some words out of their mind if they read stuff....

    I was just poking fun. I'm not having any issues with 793. And yes I saw "probably", which it's still 3 days later. Now had he said "maybe", that would have meant less likely than "probably".

    Today the same happened to me. Verification 793/792 License validation error. Installed version 709 and everything became normal.


    Is this with the web versions that you had the issues or with the Play Store? I know it's only $4, but I'm tempted to just pay the $4 again and get the Play version, so I don't have to keep looking on the website for any updates.

  3. APM response - No valid google accounts.


    Using 793. I originally purchased through the website in July 2015... I then used Google Play to install the beta. How do I fix this? I tried asking if they could switch my purchase from website to Google Play... but was told no. ?

    @eddie_the_man, are you seriously think for this needed special topic? You can using long press but anybody wants to use long press. That's all.

    No reason to be an ignorant asshole about it. This guy along with any other PA users has a right to post whatever topic they want... and you have the right to not read the topic if you're not interested. So piss off.

  5. Is there no option to list Artist including prefixes? I like to have all groups with "The" and "A" in the order they should be and not how it is currently, that it ignores prefixes. For example the Artist - A Flock of Seagulls is sorted by Flock of Seagulls... when it should be up with all the Artists beginning with "A".

    no offense but this is a pointless request, first it looks good and unless you spend the entire song looking at the cover or trying to do things just in that spot, i rather see other things fixed.

    Did anyone say they only want these options and didn't care about anything being fixed? I mean really? Wow! I can see you as a mechanic: "Ma'am, I skipped fixing your breaks, but I did shake out your dirty floor mats." And lets use your logic in a few other things in life...

    1. Don't bother making your bed, cause it's just going to get messed up again.

    2. Why flush the toilet, when you're just gonna have to flush it again next time.

    3. Don't waste your money pimping out your car, because it's pointless, unless you're gonna stand outside of it and stare at it all the time.

    4. Why do anything at all with your life, when eventually you're just gonna die.

    I am not all that surprised at the behaviour of some users.  Impatient, thinking they are owed stuff, etc.  Let's look at the details:

    - People voted for a Material Design upgrade.  This doesn't make Poweramp truly better, but, sigh.... the majority want it.  Redesign and re-coding is required.

    - Poweramp v2.x works great.  That's what people paid for.  It doesn't matter that it's several years old.  People got what they paid for.  Did I mention it works great?

    - Poweramp v3.x is going to be a free upgrade.  That should be enough to keep people happy, but sadly, it isn't.

    - Poweramp v3.x beta releases have been made available.  If you don't mind the bugs and lack of features, it might be enough for you.

    - Max maintains Poweramp as a side interest.  He probably has another full-time job, and more important "family" obligations.  Developers have lives too.

    - Life has a way of stirring up crap that has to be dealt with, causing other things to get shelved, delayed, and reduced in priority.  No doubt crap that's more important than Poweramp.

    - Lots of people complaining about low rate of beta releases, lack of communications from the developer, and broken promises.  It doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.  Really, it doesn't.

    - Poweramp is not a rip, a circus tent, or a sham.  If that was true, we wouldn't have a beta release in April 2018.  Let's be honest.  You want something new, and the silence is uncomfortable.

    - Max never has to do this, or do that.

    - As the first post clearly states:  [Admin Reminder: Development timings are very hard to predict, so timescales can vary. Repeated ETA requests won't help speed up the process, and may even get your post removed as clutter]

    I'm happy to have found a Poweramp v3 beta that works on my phone, and provides great sound.  I can depend on it.  It doesn't crash on me.  It has never let me down.  Would it be nice to have more?  Sure, why not?  But I'd rather Max take his time and get it right, while still being able to take care of the things that truly matter in his life, whether it's a wife/husband, kids, pets, a business where he might be responsible for employing people in turn helping them put a roof over their heads, food on the table, etc.

    If you're not happy with the pace of Poweramp development, may as well move on to something else.  Complaining about it produces zero results.  There are lots of other music players available; perhaps you'll find one you like.  Or, you could write a killer music app of your own, release it, make money, and better the android platform.


    To Max,
    Thank you for creating Poweramp, and continue to develop/upgrade it.  Looking forward to the next release.  I don't care when it comes out.  Much respect dude.  If it never comes out, at least I got more than what I paid for - v2, and some v3 betas.  Hope everything is going well with you.


    Agree with 99% of what you said and excellent post. My complaint you have listed... is lack of communication.. IMO unless you're in a hospital/coma etc... there is no reason that a dev can't pop in give even a simple update... a little communication can go a long way. A weekly update is not too much to ask. He hasn't even been online in coming up on 1 1/2 months.
