    Some general helpful hints can be found at

    Short :

    you can manually download the old version and prevent automatic updates if you so wish

    Skins can be found in the play store, look for "Poweramp v3 skin".

    I found exactly ZERO "helpful hints". "There's a learning curve" which essentially means, you're on your own. That is NOT helpful.  Some sort of guide or features or "How to" would actually be helpful.

  2. Thank you andrewilley and flyingdutchman for your followups. I'll try these solutions, but I've already lost so much from changing SD Cards, phone re-sets, new phones, etc. that I've accepted losing 90% of my Poweramp data and slowing re-adding them as as inevitable. I wish there was a better player out there, but there isn't - which is why I paid for Poweramp.

    My point is (as I think a lot of other users agree) that one has to jump through unnecessary and complicated hoops and/or install (and sometimes pay for) external tools to do what Android and/or Poweramp should do on its own. It is SO COMMON to want to transfer ALL your Poweramp settings to a new phone or copy your music and playlists to a new SD Card and expect to have it not break everything. In fact, editing the unique SD Card ID for playlists when copying to a new SD Card should be AUTOMATIC - it's not that hard! But today we have to do it manually. 

    I think this is what the recent poster is referring to as a "total mess" if you just copy your music files over to a new phone.

    Again, thank you for your followups.

    If you have read this thread then you will find there is a way to backup and restore your ratings.

    I HAVE read this threat and I don't know what you are talking about. Per the above: "Things like ratings and most-played counts will not be transferred, and nor will downloaded album art."

    If you can direct me to where ratings, most-played, and the many thousand of "per-song" attributes are saved and able to be transferred to a new phone COMPLETELY, I am all eyes and ears.  

    Also, I have stopped saving my music to an SD card on Android. It works fine until your SD card dies or you run out of space and have to move to a new SD card. It just isn't worth it. I have bought a new phone with 512 GB of internal storage and will use that instead.

    Please, users just want an EASY way to transfer EVERYTHING Poweramp stores from one phone to a new phone. Really, how hard can this be?

  4. "Things like ratings and most-played counts will not be transferred, and nor will downloaded album art."

    These are huge feature gaps that paying users have been asking for years.  I don't even bother to use star ratings anymore (which is a real shame) because I KNOW I'll lose them with an upgrade/reset.

  5. Could you please be more specific? I tried deleting the file and it took me to a weird file tree view (external? app? I don't know). And it DID delete the file without a prompt to cancel. (I have a backup, so no big deal.)



  6. I am also getting poor sound and audio performance from Poweramp since a recent HTC/Android updated on my HTC One VX. Not a hiss, but playback audio drops out and skips. I use a wired Android headset with a single button and mic. It almost sounds like a static charge or a loose headset jack - except it is not.  This does NOT happen with the stock music player app. 


    I have reset the phone, reformatted my SD card, etc. Nothing helps. It is because of the OS update, I am certain. 




    HTC Sensation version: 4+

    Android version: 4.1.2
