    Genre tag enhancemet

    I agree with Andre's point about Album Artist, since this effectively is supposed to help group specific tracks from mixed Artists together on a single Album. However others may use their library sorting methods differently. So if the ability to include this is somewhat as straightforward as doing so for Artist, the flexibility could be appreciated by some. Gord

  3. It would be nice to add a function to the options for Crossfade to only work when the Shuffle is active. I find that the current choices lead to crossfading during album play if the tracks are not tagged as gapless (i.e. many older rips before mp3 gapless was added by LAME). Or if gapless tracks play back-to-back during shuffle, they do not fade as expected. My preference for this would be a new option that would always crossfade all tracks when tracks are shuffled, and to not crossfade when playing album tracks in order. Is this possible? GB

    Poweramp Build 826

    Great idea. This is something that could be done using file and folder tags. Very flexible for any user preference if @maxmp goes with this.

    Poweramp Build 826

    Thank you very much for the new feature "Animate Long Labels" on the Now Playing screen! This completely changes how well the information can be displayed. Some skins that have reduced to one line to save space for larger album art can really benefit from this added feature. Now for the feature request - can you add the ability for the user to choose the tag details that are displayed in both lines on the Now Playing screen? Currently the default display shows; %title% %artist% - %album% In some cases the %artist% tag has been replaced with %albumartist% if that has been selected as the preference. But if you could add support to choose the tag contents of both lines, users could display any details they prefer. Common tags besides these are %composer%, %year%, %track%, %disc%, %kind%, and %genre%. There are plenty more. But if some of the basic ones could be supported, that would be great. With the animation feature added in 824, this can add a whole new level of customization to Poweramp! Thanks @maxmp!

    New Poweramp Skin - alternative layout

    Thanks again @flyingdutchman for the incredible support. Hope my feedback was helpful for you to improve future updates of these skins!

    Poweramp Build 823

    That helps, but normally when scrolling with this disabled, it reappears when the list is dragged back up a bit and stays. With the Yaps skin enabled, it only briefly reappears then disappears again. It doesnโ€™t happen with other skins so far, I guess the skin developer will have to check.

    New Poweramp Skin - alternative layout

    @flyingdutchman I really enjoy the Yaps skin, great. A couple of suggestions if they are feasible that may provide some additional customizations. For the record, I am using v3/823 on a LG G6 phone with Oreo. 1. The Status Bar at the top of the screen always has the bluish background. Is this something that can be configured with the same background settings as the other elements, including a transparent option? 2. For the Wave Seek bar when enabled, can the standard, scrolling wider version be an option? 3. For the Alternate skin version, is there a way to at least make the Track name fit below the artwork similar to the standard version? The Artist/Album can still be left out since the artwork should reveal those details, but the track name would be great, even better if it was toggle selection. 4. Lower the icon buttons for the Visualizer/Timer/Repeat/Shuffle modes so they aren't over the text? See screenshots of what I currently have, using the current Yaps options. They look great, thanks for the work!

    I have found the same thing. If I quickly scroll the list up and down, the mini player appears but often disappears again. I also have the Yaps skin, the standard skins are okay.

    Poweramp Build 815

    There was a lengthy discussion about this in December. Several other users echoed their agreement that while using the Album Artist tag for browsing was helpful, the Now Playing screen should still display the current track Artist tag. Is there any expectation that something will be implemented to support this? For compilation albums especially, this would be a benefit to see the actual artist performing once the track is actually playing. I'm currently on 820 with no change.
  11. Any chance the sort tags will get implemented in PAv3? It is the biggest difference of how libraries are displayed between all of the current Android media players versus iOS devices. Showing artists by last name is how I refer to see them.

    Nav bar transparent.

    This will be great, thanks!

    Poweramp Build 815

    With 815, the artist display on the Now Playing screen always shows Album Artist, regardless of selection in the Library settings. Even after selection from Album or Album Artist list, I would expect to see the actual performing Artist when the Now Playing main window.is showing.
  14. Sound is better in Poweramp than any other music player. Always was, still is. There is no question about that. But why complain about making the UI more functional and taking advantage of the best displays Smartphones have today? If that was the case all albums would ship in plain brown wrappers. I think the interface is very intuitive and follows the flow of the most advanced Android apps. And the attention to detail of the meta tags and function continues to improve well beyond what the stock Android music database covers. For those that don't want an update, turning off auto-update is probably your best solution. But for myself and everyone else that has been part of the development beta for some time now, Poweramp continues to show why it is the best music player app out there. Thanks for your efforts Max!

    Poweramp Build 814

    Hi Max, not sure if this was noted from the previous post. Are you able to consider if this is something you can update to the 815 version?

    Poweramp Build 814

    I am using the latest 813 build on a stock LG G6. Everything seems to be running pretty smooth now, and this has become my daily driver for music. Thanks for the efforts in building and evolving this amazing player! One item that seems to not follow. I have the option enabled for list click actions to play and go to the main UI, and it works when selecting specific items from within the list. However if using the shuffle or play buttons at the top of the list in the header area, the list UI remains even though the action is executed. Is this the expectation? I would prefer if it would follow the list click action, and in this case move to the main now playing UI same as after clicking on list items. GB
  17. Other tags iTunes and other players use exist for Title, Album, and Composer. Besides making it easy to ignore articles like โ€œAโ€, โ€œAnโ€, and โ€œTheโ€ it also allows for sorting by Last Name, First Name while still display First Name Last Name. Reviving this relatively old request in 2018. With all the changes in V3 coming, any chance this can be something the updated database can manage? GB

    Please add support for various iTunes tags

    Bump on this older feature request. Any plans to use the artistsort, albumartistsort, albumsort, and titlesort tags for improving the list displays in v3?
