  1. I'm on Beta and still got it, even though I was already on 860 and was updating through Google Play Store
  2. I don't know if I put this in proper category, as this isn't necessarily a feature request, rather adding to an existing feature. There's a website valled "itunes artwork finder" https://bendodson.com/projects/itunes-artwork-finder/ that you can use to search for and download high-resolution artwork from iTunes. It usually has the best quality/highest resolution album covers I can find. Google images/reverse image search rarely comes up with higher quality covers. It would be cool if when searching for album art in Poweramp, if it could search iTunes aswell. The developer of the site has the source code publicly available on GitHub so other devs can host it themselves, as mentioned at the bottom of the webpage: "NOTE TO DEVELOPERS: If you want to do any automation or hit the API I've written directly, please consider getting the source code I've made publicly available on GitHub and hosting it yourself. I can't guarantee uptime nor give permission for you to hit my server from your own apps so please host the code above on your own server if you wish to do anything like that."

  3. @Herbie With some of the settings such as dithering I think it's more of a matter of learing about what dithering is, to get an understanding of how it affects the sound of hour music, rather than an instructional video specific to Poweramp. There are probably tons of educational videos on dithering. I'll try to be a little more constructive and do my best to explain dithering in brief. When music is digitalized from an analog signal, there is some loss of data from quantization, as shown below (the original anolog signal in green, the digitalized signal in blue.) This loss of data is audibly noticeable (quantization artifacts). Dithering is a way to solve this issue, or rather cover it up so it isn't audibly noticeable. What dithering does is add constant background noise to the digitalized signal try to, in a way, fill gaps in the signal (quantization artifacts). It doesn't recover the information lost from the anolog signal, just makes the artifacts far less noticeable. Music is usually created at much higher bit/sample rates than the typical 16bit/44.1kHz (or whatever) music is sold in. Thus it need to be downsampled making the gaps in the digital signal bigger (more artifacts). The dither is added to the track before it's downsampled, and this process is usually the very last thing done during the mixing/mastering of music. So most likely all you music, if professionally made, has already been dithered, whether perchanced, pirated or distributed for free. Although, I'm not sure why (or if there's a need to) add a dither if you are upsampling not downsampling. Perhaps an explaination of when to use a dither and the differences between the different dithers available in Poweramp would be helpful in the FAQ? Also an explaination of what the Resampler Cutoff Frequency Ratio is/does would be helpful, because I have no clue and couldn't find anything on it on Google Search. Anyways I hope that helps, I can explain quantization but your probably better off looking it up, as this was already not very "brief". Lol * I'm not a professor so you may want to fact check this, I could be wrong about some stuff.
  4. Since last update, Poweramp crashes every time I try to rate a song. It happens no matter what rating (1 - 5 stars) I'm trying to give, or whether the song was or was not previously rated. It also happens on the built-in skins and on third-party skins.
  5. I don't know if this is helps or not but maybe it will. When you're listening to music through headphones above a certain volume, you get a warning message about possible hearing damage from high volumes. Depending on device you may get this message more or less frequently. I have a Samsung Galaxy S5. For me, the message only displays the first time after each reboot, that I go above that volume. (I have to reboot my phone to make it show up again.) If I have the volume that high, then unplug my headphones and plug them back in, my phone will automatically adjust media volume back to a safe volume. I know this is the case for 3.5mm output, but I'm pretty sure it applies for all other outputs (usb, Bluetooth, etc.) other than the phone's built in speaker.
  6. It's a compliment. He's saying he likes your skins. In that context "sick" (slang), means "good". He's not saying that your skins literally make him sick.
  7. I believe it's an Android thing. I've never been able to install previous versions of apps, always had to uninstall then install older version. With system apps u have to "uninstall updates" then install the apk.
  8. I have a lot of lower quality audio files (.MP3) saved into playlists and recently begun downloading higher quality versions (.FLAC). It's my understanding that playlists are save entries as the file's directory. Example (2 entries): /storage/3234-6463/Music/Kanye West - The Life Of Pablo/17 Facts (Charlie Heat Version).mp3 /storage/3234-6463/DatPiff/mixtapes/m6eaa8aa/11773275.mp3 What I was hoping for was a way to change the first playlist entry to a different file: /storage/3234-6463/Music/Kanye West - The Life Of Pablo [Flac]/Kanye West - The Life Of Pablo/18 Facts (Charlie Heat Version).flac And to do that to all my playlists automatically as it would take me forever to do it myself (I have 877 playlists). Usually I'd just rename the better quality file as the exact same as my lower quality version and replace the low quality file, and adjust the metadata if necessary (album artist, etc.) to avoid fixing playlists. But I can't do that if the file extension is different. Thank you.
  9. Please add a confirmation ('Are you sure you want to clear Queue?") when clearing queue. I keep accidentally pressing it, usually when using the scrollbar (I don't use alphabetical scroll), while selecting/rearranging tracks. Thank you.
  10. Please bring back the ability to search/"filter" within playlists. Most of my playlists are hundreds of songs so it was a very helpful feature in build 709 (not 100% sure if it was in v2, but I think it was.) Thank you
