  1. Sooo how about that ratings sync feature? I downloaded Poweramp again after not using it for a couple years and was absolutely floored by all the improvements (it might be one of the best UI's I've ever seen), but was/am very disappointed to see ratings sync still isn't there after all these years. I mean that with no disrespect, but I'd wager there are plenty of other people for whom Poweramp isn't even an option just because of this one feature not being present. Not to mention the original post listing "planned features" mentioning ratings sync was from nearly 9 years ago. Anyway. Back to the much-less-pretty Rocket Player I go, because all the flash in the world can't overshadow missing features. Here's hoping this is prioritized someday!
  2. The ability to assign Ratings in Poweramp that are then written to ID3 tags has been heavily requested for 6 years now. Considering that such a ludicrous amount of time has passed, can we get an official update as to whether or not this is something that will realistically happen? P.S. I'll happily PayPal the developer $60 for this feature.
  3. Well, I've now abandoned all hope that Poweramp will ever handle Ratings in a way that's even remotely useful... but it's still very disappointing, seeing how passionate the PA community is (was) about this feature and how it's been consistently ignored and blown off. And I guess that speaks volumes of the developer. The app advances to a certain point, it's seen as "good enough", then it's no longer supported (or the updates are painfully minor) and users are forced to shift to another option. iSyncr + PlayerPro is a combo that's far from perfect, but at least it's able to accomplish what Poweramp has been promising for five years.
  4. I will send the developers $50 via PayPal if this feature is made to work. Not much, I know, but it's killing me, not being able to use Poweramp as my primary listening app - all because of the inability for Ratings to transfer to my home/desktop library.
  5. PlayerPro does it, so clearly it is not impossible. But it's been 3+ years since this was suggested. I officially doubt it will ever happen.
  6. *sigh* I really love Poweramp. Big time. I've tried other music players casually in the past, but always came back to Poweramp. That being said, I've never used my Android device much for music simply because I've never had enough storage space. Well I just ordered a Nexus 6P with 128GB on a quest to ditch my iPod Touch, and now I'm looking more seriously. Naturally there's no good way to manage music on a Mac and an Android device, but there are some workarounds, like iSyncr. My big requirement is Ratings. So I can use iSyncr, but I'm stuck using their proprietary music player, which is garbage, or PlayerPro which is a poor man's Poweramp that's ugly to boot. iSyncr has a workaround that I can LISTEN using Poweramp, but I have to apply the Rating via their widget, which is ugly and just unnecessarily complicated. I came here in hope to find a better workaround that would let me use Poweramp to assign the ratings, then iSyncr would sync those ratings and playcounts to iTunes. But instead I've found that in 4 years this issue has not been addressed outside "oh, well it's coming." Well Poweramp Pro didn't cost a fortune but I have the right to express that that's just ridiculous. You have a user above who outlined all the technicality of what it would require, practically did the work for you, and yet still, nothing. Again, I love Poweramp. But this just shows how asleep the developer is on this project. You created something great, then abandoned it because hey it's great and it can't get any better, right? Wrong. It's great, but it's officially not good enough. I sincerely hope that however ratings are handled someday works with iSyncr or any other service that actually allows you to manage music on your Android device in a way that makes sense, but until then I'll have to jump ship to PlayerPro. While their app is undeniably ugly, even with skins, it's clear their developer listens to his/her users. This whole process should be MUCH easier and it's baffling to me that no one out there has developed a desktop app for Mac and PC that seamlessly syncs with your Android device when it's so clearly where the iPhone has the upper hand, but so be it. As much as I don't particularly enjoy this aspect of it, as an Android user I'm more than used to being overlooked and having to bend backwards for certain basic capabilities.
