  1. BTW, an answer I forgot: wired headphones, the Samsung /AKG originals that came with the phone. Not Bluetooth, actually I never tried it with my BT headphones.
  2. Yes! I can say for sure, the glitch is gone with 829. Smooth fade to pause and skip without the stutter, as it was in the previous versions. Definitely the 828 build, maybe just didn't like some setting on my phone. But, back to normal now.
  3. I updated from 826. I did not manually change any settings, I'm using hi-res, same settings as before. I've attached screens. I see since I posted 829 is available, let me give that a try and see if the issue gets resolved.
  4. Pause and skip not smooth. Galaxy S9+ ONE UI, Snapdragon Kind of a strange thing happens since I updated to 828. When I press the headphone button to pause, it doesn't pause instantly, there a bit of stuttering of the music before it stops. Skipping ahead and back does the same thing before the next song plays. The pause and skip functions fine, it's just that kind of annoying stuttering that affects a clean transition. Kind of like changing tracks on a vinyl LP, and not picking up the needle cleanly. I do not have any silence-skipping or overlap settings. Just normal. Before 828, I did not encounter this.
  5. I bought the site version 5 or 6 years ago, at the time needed the activator. Every update has been the site version, including 792, and 795. I always had the activator installed, never a problem. Most recently I installed 795, it was working perfectly until suddenly yesterday, the license wouldn't activate. Tried to recover through the app, option was greyed out. Uninstalled unlocker, restarted the phone, same problem. Cleared all data, same. Uninstalled and reinstalled 795, same. Uninstalled, went back to 792, works perfectly. Upgraded to 795 again, no license. I don't know how I can explain any better.
  6. Activator/unlocker, whatever. I bought the original version, about 5 or 6 years ago, from the site. At that time, all site versions required the unlocker. Install trial, pay for the app, then get the link to download the activator. If you think it's fishy, you haven't been a Poweramp user very long. The unlocker file FROM Poweramp: Poweramp-(alt)-Full-Version-Unlocker-2.0-build-22.apk. It was necessary to activate at the time, still works.
  7. That would be great except for a few points: 1: 795 has been working on my phone, with license activated until this morning. I did nothing with my phone, and since it had been working until about 10:30 this morning, "Target = 28" is irrelevent. 2: I have made no rom update, I using stock rom, 8.0, no device reset, I had been listening to music until about 10:30 this morning, put the phone down, took a shower, THEN after my shower: NO LICENSE! 3: I tried everything to restore purchase, but the 795 app doesn't allow me to select that option, it is greyed out, and doesn't respond. As you can see in the screenshots below. 4: I finally uninstalled 795, and activator. I installed 792, reinstalled activator, it worked PERFECTLY as you can see in the screen shot that says "thank you for purchasing" I reinstalled (Updated) 795, and AGAIN, no license, restore not available. I ended up staying for now with 792, but destroyed all my settings. This just happened suddenly, without any input or interference from me.
  8. I just tried it, and the same thing happened after I upgraded. So I uninstalled 795 again, reinstalled 792, and 792 is normal.
  9. AHHH! I tried everything with 795 and nothing worked. I uninstalled 795, and installed 792. Voila!!! 792 is normal, accepts the license. So, it appears there is a problem with 795. So, I reinstalled 795 on top, back to "can't verify licenxe" So for sure, there's a bug in 795. This just manifested a few hours ago, so I'm sure it has nothing to do with my phone, since 792 works perfectly. Galaxy S9+ ,
  10. Thanks, I'll try, but (1) that will delete all my settings and (2) it was working perfectly, so why the change? Server?
  11. Suddenly, (worked fine a couple of hours ago), I can't start Poweramp 795 because I get the message: Can't verify license. Can't find valid Google account. Strange, because I did nothing to the program, was working fine since it was released, then just out of the blue - This happened. I went through the steps to try to restore purchase (Website) but it's greyed out, I can't access it. Any Ideas? To be clear, it was originally purchased from the website, NOT Google play.
  12. While acknowledging this is a not-ready-for-prime-time release, and absolutely not complaining, (as I can easily go back to older versions), I do have a few opinions after using 790 for a few days. First, the sound is great, that's why I sticking with it for now. However, there are a few aesthetic and usability observations. On the home screen, I'm definitely not a fan of the track info on black bars across the album art display. I kind of makes it look like something added after it was forgotten earlier, or it was a quick prototype that didn't get adjusted in time for the release, and it partially covers hi-res art downloaded. It just doesn't look like it naturally belongs there. Also, the graphical seekbar is a nice idea, but maybe it could be reduced a bit, make it narrower and put the track info above it? The pause button is too small, compared to the play button, seems really strange, and when I'm busy with my attention elsewhere, finding it quickly is inconvenient. I like using gestures, but in certain situations they're not as convenient as buttons for navigating. As for the library, as I posted above, at least the Artists, I'm able to easily work around the lack of button access by using the search function. Ok for now, but wouldn't want it to be permanent, which I know was mentioned will be fixed. I don't know if this works for playlists, as I don't have any now, maybe someone could test this, as well as other library buttons not working. Widget: When PA is turned off, none of the buttons on the widget work (no matter which style) until I start PA from the app icon. Then, play, pause back & forward buttons work, but clicking on the widget won't open PA. This is a rather large inconvenience. Not mentioned in the release, but still needs fixing. So that's it for now, until I explore more.
  13. I don't know if it's been mentioned somewhere in the previous 54 pages, but as far as the artist library option, I found a rather simple workaround. Use the search function, for Artist, the results pull albums in the top section, and songs in the bottom section. Works ok for me, until the more complete version gets released, for the times I really want to find a specific artist. Sound is much better with 790, so I'm sticking with it.
  14. I have the same basic problem, where I set to shuffle all songs, starting from all songs in the music selection. But, the issue that is bothering me, is a cycling through certain artists and CDs, while leaving others completely ignored. For instance, Plays Marc Anthony, then M.A., then another song, back to M.A., Gypsy swing, then another G.S, etc. I have box sets of ELO, Creedence, 3-5 CDs each, and more, and never plays one. So I guess the problem is overplay of certain music, and ignoring others completely.
