    So in the old version of Poweramp there was an option to show the song that would be up next.. It was lumped together meta data in the player UI if I remember correctly.  I know you have been hard at work to give us this new version of the app and I certainly appreciate it.  Is there a similar setting in this new version or is just something that a coming in a future update.   Thanks guys for all your hard work. 

    It's there. Just tap on whatever is displayed on that position on ur device instead of next track till it's next track


  2. Hello, with the recent redesign, that we've all been waiting for, @maxmp said goodbye to Holo (may it rest in peace) however, a small piece of it is still left. There doesn't seem to be a new icon. Yes, it's adaptive, but design wise, it's still from good ol' Holo. While that may not be a priority right now (getting it stable is just a tad more important), a new icon is imo something worth thinking about. It's the first thing potential new customers see.

    I noticed (I'm on Huawei p20 Pro, Android 8.1) that in the Library/Folders/List Options Poweramp does not remember the selected filtering. I would like the folders to be permanently sorted by the date of the addition, and meanwhile, after the option is closed, the list returns to filter by name.Can you improve this option? Can I save the setting somewhere as default? 

    And another thing: the Poweramp widget is inactive ("play" button, next / previous track button, next / previous disc buttons) in the moment when Poweramp is turned off (in my case the process works in the background). It is only when Poweramp is turned on that the widget is activated. In Version 2 I could "control" the program using the widget even when the program was turned off.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. BTW, amazing player, great sound, beautiful intrerface!



     No. That shouldn't be default. Have no issues with the widget. Try not using that cleaner thingy u use according to the third screenshot. Cleaner stuff on Android is just garbage.

  4. I posted the following in the wrong thread. (I'm pretty sure this one didn't exist yet):

    Thx @maxmp. The buttons are back and we have a black theme now, I love it. Have a problem tho. With the new version openSL hi-res won't work with my wired headphones anymore. It did work on the 709 builds. I use a OnePlus One with Oreo. I'd appreciate if u could take a look at that.

    I've presumed that this was a sock puppet account for a while, but up until how he was just trolling rather than directly abusing other users, so I had no cause to ban him (I'm all for giving people the benefit of the doubt, and hey I don't need the hassle when I'm on vacation). However he has been sending highly obscene messages to me and I believe to other users, so garry_man has joined peter_falk in the bit-bucket and I've removed his messages. I wonder what name he'll come up with next so I can ban him again?


    Thx. Enjoy ur vacation.

    By "it says the whole album is by him" do you mean in the drilldown text options, or the artwork that is displayed. It sounds rather like you are talking about the cover art, in which case please see http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/323535-how-album-art-for-a-track-is-selected . I assume that the 'Artist' name is chosen in the same way (in normal Albums view it will be taken form the ARTIST tag, not the ALBUM ARTIST one, and the Artist tag in your example above is Getter).


    To be sure we're talking about the same thing, I attach some more photos with red circles... It actually doesn't matter to me why Poweramp chooses a different artist than the album artist, it just makes way more sense to use the album artist and I want Max to at least consider changing it to that. 

    However, if someone else with the same problem stumbles across this, a workaround I just found seems to be cutting out a song were the artist is the same as the album artist and then putting it back in the folder.

    Use Album Artists view (the artist for the song will always remain as Getter though).


    That I'm aware of, but if u look at the screenshot, it says the whole album is by him. I can't see how this is intended behaviour because it's not the first track, it's not because of alphabetical order, as "d" comes before "g" and it's also not the only track with a different artist. It's just so random.

    Edit: it's also not because the song starts with "a", I edited the tag by putting a "X" in first place that didn't change a thing.

    Edit2: okay, for whatever reason, it looks for the 2nd track. 

    Edit3: No, it doesn't. On Dr. Dre's 2001 it uses the artist from the last track.

    You are using the non feature-complete test version of PA3 (build 790). The library mode that you need (Album Artists) is not yet implemented - only basic Albums, Artists and Folders category views are supported. All the other modes (there are quite a few) will be restored in the next test release, or use build 709 in the meantime which is more fully featured (but does not use the new-style interface).


    I guess u misunderstood. The 709 also says this album is by Getter which it is not.

  9. So, if u have an album on ur phone that happens to have a song on it, that's not from the album artist or when the album artist is just "various artists", Poweramp thinks that's a reason to sort the album to the artist, that did one song on the album, instead of the album artist. I'll attach screenshots, to show u what I mean. It's obviously a deadmau5 album, but PA decides it isn't. That may look like a aesthetic issue, but it's pretty annoying when u set PA to go to the next list after finishing the one before and u want to listen to all ur songs sorted by album artist that way.

    Patience :D guy you must be new here 


    Why do you guys defend him and just lie to further defend his laziness and broken words? He said many times when he's planning to release something, have exact dates and deadlines that he NEVER meet. Saying it's good enough that he updates Poweramp anyway it's like saying that it's good anyways that you are working in Tesco as cash register for 40 years because you have a job and it's success that there's a job anyways. 

    It's just a pure joke that he edited once again good post to hide ETA and deadlines just for you brave defenders to say "see he didn't promised anything". If some developer is considered generous and awesome because he's updating his work after over 5 f* years with some mayor changes, you are freaking 0. Since I have bought my first Android phone that was Samsung Galaxy mini and I bought Poweramp this app haven't changed since then to this day. And that was almost 7 or 8 years ago. He just earned his money and don't give a S about this app anymore and that would be ok if he would at least admit it, not just gaining defenders like you that just stand and bash anyone who tries to prove how sad this man is

    I have sent many material design examples how this app could look alike, I was about to help max for free with his job and give him as many design concepts he would need but he didn't give a S* about it but that's ok, but whining how this app looks alike, how sad implementation of material design there is in it as most people expected, is his problem because he decided to do it his way not even implementing one thing that could be considered material 

    Just small reminder from over a year ago that was made in a week after many changes people advised


    So much salt because u'r design wasn't chosen... Hey Dude, u said it urself, it took u only a week. Since u are so disappointed with the wait, u had around 2 years (this is about 104 weeks btw) to make ur very own player. Eta plox.

    Sorry to say... But it doesn't take years to develop.... So in this case you are wrong.... If the developer isn't sure about the release of the new build than he himself should not give the eta... Even I m a dev...but do deliver it on time.... And the thing about paying... If you buy a cellphone do u pay extra for the updates..? No... Still u expect it... So even if we paid for v2 we have rights to ask about the update... Bcz we trusted that's the reason we paid... 

    When i bought my phone, the manufacturer guaranteed updates for at least two years, so it was part of the deal. People here complain because they want the next beta, the v790 is barely a month old. And on top of that, Max never posted an exact release date.

  12. Damn, people here are stupid. On one side, they annoy everyone with eta requests and when Max finally is annoyed enough that he just says anything to make them stop, they complain that he couldn't keep his "promise", that they pressured him to make. On xda u can get banned for eta requests and I have no idea, why it isn't done here.

    U'r so toxic, calling him a untrustworthy person etc. F*** off, try to develop anything and u'll realize, it's not just pushing a button, it's work. Work he doesn't get paid for. Work he does in his free time, next to his regular job (I suppose). U paid for Poweramp v2. U paid for the current state. Everything u get now, is a f***ing bonus. A bonus, which toxic a*** like u do not deserve. 

    For the sake of all the others, I hope Max doesn't agree with me and continues developing anyways. He wouldn't be the first to stop developing because of a toxic community. Unlike other projects, Poweramp is unique, have fun trying to find a replacement if he stops.

    @andrewilley, will there be a way to re-purchase the new version? Somewhere back in the comments I read that the new version will be free upgrade. As a developer myself I know how much time and effort it costs to upgrade everything and do a full refactoring. I would like to show my appreciation and purchase the app again. Would that be possible? 

    Maybe purchase it for a family member or make urself a second account.
