    Template for v3 to design skins??

    I understand. I have sent them another email regarding this matter, a reply to their reply-email to me from a few days ago. You or your interaction has not been mentioned in my email, it is my business only. Will see if they respond the same as last time. If they do, I - and probably many other PA v3 users around the world - will then have to go to one of their competitors for good v3 skins and the loss is theirs.

    Perhaps your pointing this out to this developer will in due course make them reconsider, since they have mentioned loss of revenues in the aforementioned email-reply and money talks for all businesses. Time will tell.

    I see. In that case they should not lay the blame on PA like they did pretty emphatically in their email-reply to me above where I was told to make any complaint to PA.

    @flyingdutchman Thank you for your efforts. I understand. From you interaction with this developer, is it your understanding that the 'problem' ('inability' to create a v3 skin) stems from the programmer not having familiarised him/herself with the PA v3 skin sdk, or is there some other reason or something that can be done on the part of PA?

    @flyingdutchman Thanks for assisting. It will be interesting to see what their feedback to you is reg. this matter (ref. what they informed me in quoted part above).

    @andrewilley Can you or Max confirm if what the aforementioned developer (scapemode) says in the received email (in part copied above) is true, that they have written to you several times reg. PA templates for v3 skins and that there is some sort of problem which stops them from creating v3 skins. If they have been successfully creating an abundance of PA skins for almost 8 years and are eager to create new ones for PA v3, one would think it would be in everyone's interest (developer, PA and users) to find a solution.

    Thanks for your response. I did not know whether it was allowed/approved here to post reference to developer/skin. Developer is scapemode, skin in question is called 'MENTALIST Poweramp skin V2' but could ref. any of their skins. They have 80+ skins at Google Play and seem professional to me. That is why this whole matter seems so strange.

    On the same topic, I just contacted a third party PA skin developer (not sure if I am allowed to name them here, but I have the info if you wish) who had great/intricate PA v2 skins imo, asking if they had plans to make similar PA v3 skins, and here is a quote from their long answer by email: @maxmp Hello.. we've tried everything for months and really done our best but Poweramp does not give us a template to work with, so it's impossible to update the skins. We have written to Poweramp several times and have asked them why they are not helping us, unfortunately Poweramp got only one answer with a link leading to a page where you get an unacceptable template for creating and updating the skins for V3 We've been dealing with it for almost 6 months now and we're starting to feel like they no longer want us to design or update skins for Poweramp. That's why we get bad reviews and our revenues are getting less. Believe me, it's not up to us, we'd like to update the skins. We do not understand why Poweramp does that, maybe they want to design their own skins. We have been creating Poweramp skins for almost 8 years and find it very sad that they want to end this way. We also know that Poweramp has benefited greatly from our designs, so we do not understand that Although it is not our fault, I apologize for the inconvenience If you want to complain, please contact Poweramp Poweramp.maxmpz@gmail.com

    v3 build 823 - High Battery Consumption

    Thanks for the feedback, Max. I will keep an eye on battery usage when I have heavier use of Poweramp (f.ex. very long listening session many hours one day).

    v3 build 823 - High Battery Consumption

    Glad to help. No, it did not help with the battery issue, but it did 'solve' the 'kill Poweramp' issue for me at least and that was more imperative on my phone while it lasted. The battery issue (drainage and hot phone) seems more complex, as these threads and multiple posts show, hopefully it will be resolved in due course.

    v3 build 823 - High Battery Consumption

    I had the same problem with my Galaxy Note 9 a week or so ago as well, Poweramp was killed midplay with that error-message, happened several times. I went into the app settings for Poweramp on my phone and changed 'change system settings' from 'off' (which was default) to 'on' (give permission). I haven't had the error-message since. I don't know if this is a fix or not but it worked for me so I thought I'd mention it since my phone is similar to yours. Let me add that I too experience the 'high battery consumption-hot phone' issue that many other Samsung owners here have mentioned. I don't use my phone as heavily as many others so it isn't a big issue for me but thought I could mention it. My phone also warns me that 'Poweramp is using much battery in the background' and says to put it into hibernation/sleep mode. I have tried doing a clean install but it hasn't helped. I never have 'Always On Display' on. I have no battery stats screenshots, others with heavier use of the phone (=more affected) will probably better be able to document the issues, but thought I'd pitch in.
