Why does Poweramp need to verify license through Google Play when Poweramp Unlocker is installed? in Poweramp v2 Discussion (Legacy Version ONLY) Posted May 13, 2019 2 hours ago, andrewilley said: Market was the old name for the Play Store in the early days of Android. Maybe the original version on your device is just too old to work at all now? Yes, you could buy a new licence from the Poweramp website, but you would still need a live internet connection and to have the same email account present on your device for that to work. Please see http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/324284-restore-Poweramp-purchase for what you'll need. Andre Here's something I hadn't noticed before, FWIW.

It shows 3 things running: Headset Micro Service Poweramp Google Play Store When I scroll all the way down it says, "Service LicensingService in use." I guess I'll just let it set there for a while. I'm losing hope, though.
