I see quite a lot of feature requests here regarding sorting, so I decided to make another one.
Currently, there's no good way to sort the "All tracks" list. Most of the sorting options like filename or track number make absolutely no sense for this list. Sorting by Author breaks the albums apart (it creates a mess if an album has several authors) it shuffles tracks within albums. I think currently sorting the All tracks list by author is unusable. The only somewhat usable sorting method for this list is by album. The albums are then sorted alpabetically, different authors are mixed. I think most people would like their albums sorted by author and year.
I think the simplest solution for this problem would be adding sorting by file path. I think most people have their albums organized in folders by author and album folders can be renamed to include the release year. So the folder structure looks like this:
- 1999 - Album 1
- 2002 - Album 2
- 1996 - Album 1
- 2000 - Album 2
If if was possible to load the music library into Poweramp and preserve this organization, It would be super nice! Thanks!
