Hi, Using Poweramp 2.06.508 on Galaxy Nexus, Standard Goggle Rom JB 4.11 Poweramp is indeed a very flexible music player. I like very much the configuration options. However, the Album Jump buttons are unusual. I wonder what is the practical purpose of these buttons. For me, this is a serious inconvenience which makes the product almost unusable. The "Jump Album" buttons don't have a symetrical behavior. i.e if I hit one by accident, hitting the opposite button doesn't bring back to the playing position before the mistake. Example: Playing track 32/50 of Album1. I accidentally hit the Next album button (PA plays track 1/n of Album2). Then I hit the Previous Album to undo the mistake. PA starts playing track 1/50 of Album1. Of course I want to continue where I was before the mistake. The only way I find so far is to review the content of Album1, then navigate slowly in the listing and try to remember where I was. This takes a while. Granted. I am probably the kind of rare users who never jump album to album frenetically. However I do navigate to albums. For that, I just go back to the album view. Of course, this requires more button hit than a single button hit. But at least, this allows to jump to any album instead of Preview / Next. Additionally this allows to review the album content and even to select any track inside the album rather than always Track #1. A touch interface is less precise than dedicated players with physical buttons. As such, touch mistake is quite frequent. I can get away with most of the touch mistakes. But a mistake on the Album Jump button is quite time consuming to fix that actually I prefer to stop evaluating Poweramp. Pleasee allow the option to remove these two Album Jump buttons and you'll find me as a customer. Better yet, these buttons would be better to be replaced by fast forward/backward (within the same playing track) BTW, you may wonder why this is such a big deal. I listen to audiobooks. Each album is a different book. Jumping from book to book by accident and losing track of the chapter you were listining is very annoying. Thanks in advance for your attention.
