  1. Hello. I'm a long time Poweramp user (bought it ages ago on a SonyEriccson phone with Android 4). Lately I'm trying to de-google my life as much as I can, but there is one problem, my favourite music app (Poweramp of course) was bought on Google Play. Using LineageOS on my main phone with no Google I wasn't able to use it (and if I installed Google Play and then removed it, Poweramp V2 at the time, would deactivate after a while) so I just used other players for a few years now. Now I got a new phone from my employer and even though I could probably mod this one as well, I'd rather keep it stock. Having Google and everything already on the phone, I could reinstall Poweramp from Play store using my original Google account. So I did to try out V3 on the new phone (it was still at beta last time I actually used it). Now that the introduction is done, my question: I noticed that it says that I can uninstall the unlocker after two days. Does this mean that if I keep the Play Store and Unlocker installed for two days, after that I can remove it and my Poweramp will stay activated forever? Or will I still have problems if I remove Google Play and kill the Play Services? In other words, what are the requirements when it comes to Google crap if I want to keep my Poweramp activated? While I'm at it, is there any way to have PA V2 or V3 stay activated even without Google Play or Play Services? Or any way to get the non-play version without buying it again or with a discount? I know the app is cheap enough at 5€ but it's the only app I ever bought and I honestly don't feel like buying it again. PA is by far the best player on Android and possibly out of any device, but I found many alternatives that just work even though not as well as PA. That is mostly the reason why I don't feel like paying it again. Thanks in advance to anyone who may reply.
  2. Oh, and I found another small bug with visualization. You know I'm a huge fan of Milkdrop, I've played and tripped with it since the days of Winamp on Windows XP. Anyway, it seems certain parts of the visualization aren't rendered properly if HD mode is selected. I notice it a lot with some presets I imported from my pc, on the built in ones is very noticeable in some such as Blur Mix 3,the superscope or whatever it's called is not rendered properly as you can see.
  3. Got the update via Play Store, everything seems fine on my Oneplus3. I love the new UI, very innovative but still intuitive. I wouldn't be surprised if within a year every other music player copies this style, as always PA is far ahead of the competition. Anyway, only one thing is bothering me, is there any way to skip to the next album with a gesture? Or is it only possible to do so with the buttons? As for bugs, compatibility with my car's Bluetooth head unit has been completely ruined, the controls don't even work anymore and metadata isn't displayed anymore on the screen. Since this is so important for me, I'm willing to help the dev troubleshooting or trying out different builds to get the Bluetooth working perfectly like it did on v2.
  4. I find it funny that many of you are concerned about HD Audio and pristine quality then go all out and enable all kinds of distorting bullcrap like Dolby Crapmos or XxXtremexXx Sikk Audio Mod #23754 Mega Bass Edition, and then proceed to listen to music using godawful Skullcandy or Beats or if you're lucky low end Sennheiser earbuds.
  5. I don't have that many issues with this build except for using Bluetooth in my car. The compatibility went from "literally perfect" to "basically nothing works" when I updated my phone to Android 8.0 (phone is the original OnePlus3). The situation in this beta got even worse compared to the previous Alpha version. Basically, my car supports full ID3 tag display, seekbar with time, fast forwarding and rewind, toggling of shuffle and repeat, and of course play pause and skipping back and forth. I'm pretty sure it also supports browsing the music library but I've never seen it work on Android (I've seen it work on some iPhones). On Android 7 on both the alpha and the regular version everything was just perfect, I could even triple click the fast forward or rewind button to go to the next album or playlist, it was the best thing ever. On Android 8 on alpha only the audio streaming works but nothing else, there is no display of seekbar and ID3 info, buttons don't work except for play/pause, and there are major skips in the sound. Since this is a mandatory feature for me, if you need a beta tester to check out BT compatibility I will offer myself volountary. I do not have this issue with other player, besides, on Android 7 it worked just perfectly. My car is the Toyota Aygo 2015 which uses the same system as the Peugeot 108 and Citroen C1 2015.
  6. This new update is just lovely. Fresh, innovative interface that is also super easy to use and fast. Only thing I'm not a huge fan of is the wave seekbar which is clunky when I need to seek through a long mix or other long (1 hour or more) recordings. Also I miss the lack of seekbar in lists. Keep up the good work, even in the current state the app is miles ahead of everything else on Android.
