  1. I'm not actually certain now if I've got a problem or not. What I want to do - and what I was doing with the previous version - is to shuffle my albums randomly, but then play each album from beginning to end before advancing to the next one. The new version doesn't seem to have anything called "album shuffle", but it does have "shuffle categories", which seems to be working in at least a similar manner. It's kind of hard to be sure if it's doing exactly what "album shuffle" used to do, in part because this new version doesn't seem to want to display the track number of the current track - so until I get to an album I know by heart, it's hard to tell whether I'm getting the tracks in order. (I use Poweramp in my car, so I'm listening it rather than watching it - and I can't be pushing a lot of buttons while I'm driving!)
  2. Perhaps this has already been answered, but: What happened to Album Shuffle? This feature was kind of tricky to find before the latest update, but I can't find it at all now - and that means Poweramp is basically useless for me! :-(
  3. I generally use Poweramp to play music (on "album shuffle") in my car as I drive, with Waze running. Poweramp plays through my car's bluetooth audio system, and I set Waze to use the phone's speaker for its audio prompts. When I set Poweramp to "respect audio focus", every time Waze has something to say, Poweramp stops playing entirely; stopping and restarting the audio both seem to be slightly slow. This mode of operation can be extremely annoying, particularly when Waze gives a bunch of audio prompts in rapid succession. ("In 400 meters, at the roundabout, take the second exit. In 200 meters, at the roundabout, take the second exit. At the roundabout, take the second exit." Get the picture?) As a result, I've set "respect audio focus" off, and I have to hear the Waze prompts (some of which are actually important) over the full-volume music. Another audio player I've used - which shall remain nameless, but has the initials "N7 Player" - implements "respect audio focus" by lowering the volume of the music playing over bluetooth, without actually stopping the music. This mode of operation is far less annoying, and I would love to see it implemented (either as the normal "respect audio focus" mode or as an option) in Poweramp. (I've got other problems with N7 Player, which prevent me from using it in my car.) If this kind of "kinder, gentler" respect-audio-focus mode could be made available in Poweramp, I'd be most grateful! -Don Radlauer
