  1. Completely agree. Like this ui better than regular v3, much cleaner and intuitive, with title/track off of album art. Want full-size art to cover space though too! Still keeping original ui gestures.
  2. Yeah, it should have a Back button but no Forward button, since it's the "Final Song"! Sorry, just trying to inject some humor.. Hope you figured out the problem. ;)
  3. Andre, I, unfortunately for ONE, agree with you on most every point. As a power-user of PA since the first version, still think its the best player app available! But Max got it soo right early on, that change (for change sake) isnt always necessary. The shuffle button has always been a bit of a pain for me too though, as i very frequently want either ShuffleAll or No shuffle/no repeat functions, and like you have to scroll through all options... Completely agree that menu-based options are the way to go. They let all users decide what they want or do not want and set up accordingly. Then you only have to set it up once, and its there the way you like it. Still dont think text over album artwork looks good. And the UI is so pretty, otherwise.
  4. @utahman1971, Dont understand why you are always taking things so personal. He quoted you only FOR context, to explain the situation with Samsungs and how and why they don't work with the app. It wasn't really directed at you--its just information--possibly helpful for any Samsung user on this forum, so he need not repeat it a hundred times.
  5. Thanks, Andre. Yes, i had went ahead and uploaded 709 (from704) on my S3 tab last night...Seems to be functioning well! Need to use Open SL output, but still sounds good (not HR output). Must say (for fear of reprisal) that the 7xx builds still look amazing on a big sharp screen, particularly with hires art. That's another reason i don't like any boxes covering the album art - its kinda like going from the old beautiful LP art to a cassette or cd.
  6. Are the latest alpha builds 706-708 compatible with a tablet?
  7. Max, The notes mention LG v10, anything useful for LG v20 in the 707 build? Thanks for the new updates, sounds great so far!
  8. 703~707 are the Alpha builds, 790 is a beta build for the new material-design based Version 3 of Poweramp. It will be the new fully-featured version when complete.
  9. I waited for years and decided to upgrade from Note 3 to 7. That didnt go well. ? Had to turn the first one in and get replacement, Got stung by a bee while standing in line at my local verizon store (and im allergic). Then had to turn in 2nd one after the total recall of device. It was fast and sharp, and Poweramp seemed to work well even with expermental hi-res out (think it was a703--never posted as phones were recalled and seemed irrelevant). Voice quality not as good as 3. Then went to LG v20, which has amazing SQ, and unfortunately probably last phone with removable battery.
  10. Build 706: Hi-res Output seems to be working great for me now on LG V20! Sound is loud and dynamic with either output. Sounds great! One thing I've noticed is that when listening to music via PA (headphone jack), if i get a notice (email, text alert) the sound (music on PA) briefly starts playing through the phone's speaker (during the alert sound) rather than wired headphone. @Andre: glad to know someone else is still using a Note3 Mine is still going strong. Main reason i like replaceable batteries. On 4th battery in Note3, and second in V20, gives it new life! Currently testing build 790 on note3 as i need to wait for EQ profiles to be able to export. Anyone tried build 706 on Samsung S3 tablet? (704 still works well).
  11. I agree. Don't think this is a bad thing, he's just finishing up the remaining issues in the alpha. The problems for him or that there are now so many different devices, and Android is maturing now, but with many people also on old devices that will never get a newer OS pushed to them. I can see using my LG v20 for a few more years for sure, even if i move to a new phone, it will be a great music player for awhile longer, as the SQ is good, and the battery is replaceable.
  12. But wait, i thought 790 was already perfect, for You. At least you have been pointing that out every other post to all the other "whiners" and "complainers." I agree that 703/704/705 certainly seem more of a beta build and 790 more of an alpha. But why now complain that Max is helping others with the 705, and threaten to leave to another player?
  13. @maxmp, THANKS for the update (705)! Seems to work great so far for me (LG v20). Can you confirm if the quad-DAC in this device is indeed utilized with the Experimental Hi-Res output?
  14. In a perfect world, i agree with you. Flatness of frequency response is desired. And i hate Presets or 'generalized' EQ settings. But EQ is supposed to be used FOR flattening frequency response. With the equipment as well as the listening environment. I have sound treatment in my studio and a 31 band graphic as well as parametric eq rack, which also allows for mic input to measure the room acoustics. Most just use eq to "pump up" the frequencies that they enjoy, but it should mostly be used to attenuate spikes, and flatten responses throughout the octaves. Also, we dont all hear the same though, and personalized EQ isnt necessarily a bad thing. Thats the main reason i want 790 to be finalized, to be able to restore all of my EQ presets. I have a preset for every headphone, IEM, as well as my studio, car, ect. as they all sound different in terms of the equipment limitations and acoustic environments.
  15. Why are YOU even still here? You insisted countless times this update would NEVER HAPPEN at all.
  16. thinking exactly the same thing. Many cannot hear the difference between lo-res mp3 and flac file even, particularly in mobile environments without good equipment.
  17. E x a c t l y . Plus, the black boxes are a visual distraction for the otherwise beauty of the entire design.
  18. But, you are NoLongerWorking. (Sorry, couldn't help it, as Andre said "if it AIN'T broke"). ? Seriously, I'm becoming torn between buttons and gestures. Just really dont like those black boxes over the art.
  19. He has a very good point about the white: the design (at least currently without skins) is problematic when the album art is white (try the beatles "White Album" for instance)-the controls almost disappear. It also is pure white when no album art displays. I think this will be remedied with updates, but it certainly is a consideration with the design. I LIKE the overall visual design of the v3. And i am not against gesture control at all. I did like the up/down album gesture in 704. And i like swiping for track advance. I agree with Andre about the mutiple areas of swiping though, that is much harder than buttons. But the black boxes with type covering the album art LOOK horrid. Its not pretty and is a stark contrast to the other well-implemented elements of design. The waveform scroller is visually appealing and works well. Its much easier to control and is very fluid. But i just dont think it needs to be quite as big. It could be a smaller and allow for the track listing to be placed off of the art, and not even affect the control functionality. The more i use it the more i like it--but frankly, i dont need to use it very often. Why would you constantly need to scroll around in the track? I can see it in an editing function but not for basic music listening. But what bothers me more is that the waveform is not very accurate! ? It draws more attention than any visual element (including album art) but doesnt sync well with the actual music. (I have degrees in both recording engineering and graphic arts, so this just makes me crazy) ? Hopefully when the v3 is completely finalized, some of these issues will be worked out. On my device, 790 seems way more of an alpha version than 704 was. I am getting constant crashes with 709 as well, 704 seems more of the beta/more stable version.
  20. Did i not say it was personal preference? I like the look of buttons. "much faster" is your preference.
  21. Im aware of that...But you can't add the ratings (star) system. Just don't understand the reasoning for "Disliking" a track you have put on your device to begin with.
