  1. Thanks for the reply. I did some digging, and I've discovered the source of the problem. Where an album contains songs from several different years, only those from the most recent year are showing in the category list; the rest are missing. (So, say, a compilation of tracks from 1979, 1980 and 1981 will only appear under 1981.) The reason I noticed it with the 1927-33 album was because it's earlier than anything else in my library, so I'd expected the songs to show up all by themselves at the bottom of the list.
  2. I recently added to my library an album of songs mainly recorded in 1927-8, with one song recorded in 1933. The album shows up correctly in most of Poweramp's lists, and when I view All Songs arranged by year, the tracks from 1927-8 are placed where they should be, at the top (or at the bottom, depending on which way the list is ordered). But when I click on the 'Years' category option, it shows nothing from 1927 or 1928; the track from 1933 is the only one that appears. Out of interest I tagged a few other random files with dates in the 20s and 30s, with the same result: nothing from before 1
  3. Great skin - the cleanest I've yet come across. Just one complaint: when you hide the top buttons (which I like to do as I never use them), the track counter is placed over the album art, and if said art happens to be white or light blue/grey it can be very hard to see. Perhaps add a thin dark outline to the text, or else move it to above the track title (there seems to be some room there)?
  4. Not sure if this is a bug or intentional design, but on my device (Lenovo Tab 4 8 plus, Android 8.1), embedded lyrics only show in the bottom third of the screen - the rest being taken up by faded album art. If it's meant to look like this, then it seems like a waste of screen space; there are times when you might want to view more than a few lines of lyrics at a time (for example if, as in the attached example, the track has both the original Latin lyrics and an English translation).
  5. 'Visceral' and 'bloodcurdling' aren't adjectives usually associated with Anglican church music, but they're about right for Giles Swayne's unique setting of the Magnificat. I heard it yesterday at evensong in St Paul's Cathedral and was listening to this recording on repeat on the train home. Guaranteed to wake up even the doziest congregation and make them wonder when the demons got into the choir stalls.
  6. I'd like for Poweramp to return to its former behaviour of displaying lyrics and info/tags in fullscreen, rather than squashing them into the bottom third as the current version does. I have some classical albums that have embedded lyrics, translations and notes for each track, and these are much better viewed in fullscreen.
  7. Nice skin - I prefer it to the default version. Just one thing: the track counter and sample rate/bitrate info need either a background or outlines to the text, as at present they become invisible if the album art is predominantly white (see attached screenshots).
  8. Count me another vote against the boxes over the album art. It seems particularly silly to put the artist name and album title there when 99% of the time the cover art will show that anyway. Other than that, great to see that things are moving again.
