  1. Hi Andre This only happens with Launcher3 but not with Google Now Launcher (the previous "official" Google launcher) so maybe it's just a glitch. It's not a big deal anyway, it just means losing space for a row of icons. Frankly, nothing that cannot wait to be fixed in the far future. I'll wait for the next version. Thanks for replying
  2. Confirmed in my device running 7.1.1 I can't go into details about the phone model at this time, sorry. All widgets from Poweramp, but not from other apps, appear to be one "unit" taller than they really are. Also, they cannot be resized. Using Launcher3 (default Google Launcher from AOSP). If needed, I can provide with screenshots.

    Output volume very low

    I happen to have the EXACT same smartphone as you, and I don't have that problem after being using Poweramp for more than four months on that device. I was going to suggest to turn on DVC, but you already did that. So, my suggestions to find the reason are: - First, uninstall Poweramp and reinstall it. Android is famous for causing a lot of problems because of damaged cache and problems when installing apps. This is easy and fast, and I would try that first. For that, do the following. Go to Settings->Apps->Poweramp->Storage and touch "CLEAR CACHE" and "CLEAR DATA". Then, uninstall the app. After that, reinstall it. Please don't import your configuration from your Samsung player to the A4.5, let's try to use Poweramp with the default settings to see if that works. - Second, test with DVC off. That will allow Dolby to kick in and you SHOULD have the same output level with Poweramp than you have with other apps). - Third, make sure this is not caused by ReplayGain. - If that doesn't work and you know for sure the problem doesn't lie in your headset (e.g. other apps work OK with them), let me know and we will try to isolate the problem. Last, but not least, your native language is probably Spanish. I think it's MUCH better to help other users if we keep this conversation open, here and in English, but if this is a problem for you and you prefer to solve this problem in Spanish, you can send me a private message if you want. In the end, even though this information may be quite useful for other users, the fact is that it probably affects just your terminal, so maybe it doesn't make any sense to deal with the problem here. It's up to you

    Reshuffle?

    @mwalimu, even though I've used the player for some time, I think it's a great idea to write such a manual. And you look like the one to do it, your writing is good, you are good at explaining things. If you ever write such a manual, contact me and if I can afford the time I'll collaborate with you by translating it to Spanish, if you want me to. Thanks for the initiative.
  5. Hi! Version 588, official, from Play Store. BQ Aquaris A4.5 phone, Android 6.0.0, Stock ROM. I'm sorry I didn't notified this before, because even though I noticed it just after installing version 588 I thought it was a problem with my headset, not with Poweramp. The problem is simple: when I turn the volume up or down, it fluctuates sometimes a bit before settling. For example, let's say I'm listening music at certain volume X. If I turn the volume UP one "click", the volume drops BELOW X and then goes up to the definite level. If I'm at volume X and I turn the volume DOWN one "click", the volume drops BELOW the desired level and then goes a bit up to the proper level. This happens when crossfading, too: the old song slowly fades into the new song (correctly) but when the new song's volume is going up, at certain point which I can't determine the volume goes down again and then goes up again. This happens using a headset, headphones and even the smartphone internal speaker. I don't know if all this is caused by some setting I've activated, but when I disable DVC, the problem disappears. It comes back when I activate DVC again. Yes, I can live without DVC, but one of the main reasons why I use Poweramp is sound quality, if I can't use DVC, I lose some of that. As I told, this didn't happen in previous versions, at least I didn't notice it, and given that now is VERY noticeable and I'm using the same headphones, I bet it didn't happen before. Max if you need more information, just ask.

    @Andre, looks like we share the same views about Google developing process (or lack of)...

    Error license check

    Andre, you removed the email address of the user from the public post... but the guy used his email address as his user name anyway...

    Poweramp for Desktop

    @r4pt0r, for PC try foobar2000. Only for Windows, unfortunately, because I never found a player as good as fb2k for Linux. A pity, really.
  9. I utterly love @Brainscollector UI mockup. If that ends up in Poweramp there won't be, IMHO, a better audio player out there. Right now the only thing I don't like about Poweramp is the user interface. I'm already familiar with it, but this year (and it's only April) FOUR of my friends have tried and disliked Poweramp ONLY because the looks. Sound quality is amazing, but frankly if you have a pair of cheap headphones and 128kbps MP3, the main difference between players is the user experience. My friends didn't want to spend the time required by Poweramp's current learning curve, and at least two used Neutron instead. In the end, four sales lost just because of an overcomplex UI. I'm not going to stop using Poweramp even if the UI gets actually worse, because I love the program, but frankly a more modern and more practical UI would get quite a lot of users, and @Brainscollector design is great.
  10. Aaaaaaaamen, Andre. My exact views, point for point. Maybe I'm not so picky with Material Design, but I spent like 80% on my smartphone swearing and cursing at Google and their "inventions". Sometimes it's like if they loved giving hell to their users. Of course, they LOVE giving hell Android developers (ask Max...), so doing the same to the end users was only a natural next step, I suppose...

    Bugs

    No, Andre, the "bugs" (if they were bugs and not just preferences in behaviour) were not fixed, the poster ended the message with "éxitos" because he was wishing success to the project, not because he had all fixed. That's why I didn't translate it in my reply, it's just a formula for ending a message, not real content. Chrome translation is far from perfect If the poster explains to me (in Spanish) the problems he is having, I will translate them for the forum. So far, I don't fully understand what the problems are...

    Purchase problem...my problem!

    If the system memory is so low, there's little you can do, unfortunately. I can understand that vendors try to reduce manufacturing costs, and that usually mean low storage, but some of them reduce the system storage so much that the device ends up being totally useless. In this case, the problem is not only the lack of system memory, but the fact that the "Parrot Store" doesn't have the apps you need. I don't see what you can do here. For Poweramp to work (check the license) I suppose you need Google Play services installed. That means you need, at a bare minimum, 80 MB (If I recall correctly) to store both apps (Play and Poweramp), and throw another 100 MB, at least, for the data that Google Play Services needs (at least in my terminal the amount is about 100-150MB, on average). If you add the amount needed by Poweramp itself, the total amount of storage consumed may be well above 300MB. Impossible to fit that and the system apps (and their data, presumably) in 600MB. Maybe some Android guru can give you some trick to achieve what you want, but certainly I don't have any idea about how to fix this. And don't worry, I can understand your English And I insist, if you have problems explaining anything in English, just drop me a note and I'll translate it for you, no problem. Yes, Google translator sucks most of the time

    Bugs

    Celerino, if I understand things correctly, this forum is English-only (with a Russian subforum) so with your permission I'm going to translate your message: "Huawei Ascend P2 I like Poweramp so much that I joined the testing to lend a hand with v3.0, and I found a bug when showing the configs (they look transparent or under the cover), I don't find the Dolby config and we are awaiting the Spanish translation". I have to say I don't understand the bit about the configurations looking transparent or under the covers, though. Do you refer to the icons to access the three-dot menu, the equalizer, etc.? If you don't speak English, explain the bug in detail here in Spanish and I will translate the message if I can. Anyway, this message will be better in the Poweramp-alpha testing subthread, but it's better if Andre decides about that.

    Next builds priorities

    Ankur, I understand why you want this feature, but really it doesn't make sense to add an speaking clock to a music player, it just doesn't belong to it. I'll give you another example, much more related with music playing but which wouldn't make sense either: I would love if PA detected where I am (my location, I mean) and if I'm on the gym, switch automatically to a playlist named "gym" or even better, only play music with high tempo and rhythm, automatically. Or monitor my heart rate with an activity bracelet so it detects I fell asleep and turns down the volume of the music gradually... The problem here is bloating. There's a gazillion of features, not difficult to implement, which could be added to PA, and I bet each and every user have a different one. A music player should ONLY play music, manage a library at the very most. Of course, it's a matter of preferences, but I have "UNIX" spirit: do just one small thing, do it well. I'd rather have an small app for each operation rather than a huge one which does everything. As Andre mentioned, a speaking clock will be useful, and I bet it exists For running, though, surely there must be an app which reads you the time. I know runners which have apps on their phones (don't know which app) which not only read the time but also the time per lap, time per kilometre/mile, and other stats.

    Purchase problem...my problem!

    Yuls, can you add an SD card to the parrot device and move as many apps as you can there? That way maybe you have enough space to install the Google Play Services, activate Poweramp and then move the apps back, or something like that. Also, if you feel more comfortable writing in Spanish, I'm from Spain too and you can send me a private message. Mind you, my knowledge about these things is quite limited, so maybe it's better to try to write in English here and get more elaborate and quality replies
