Poweramp v3 Project Update (please read first post for latest info before commenting)

Recommended Posts

Whether or not we get it out tonight or not, the app itself is still functional and does a great job of playing back music.

IAs for the high res support commotions. I mean, unless you're all walking around with dacs/ amps and high end earbuds/ headphones... not too sure how big of a difference having high res support really is for you... So again, just take the app for what it currently supports right now. 

 

Also, I'm pretty sure the devs have other things to worry about. I don't believe Poweramp is their main job. I'm sure they have other jobs and tasks and they're very busy with other stuff.

I too have emailed Max to see if he had any further news before the end of the year, but he still isn't able to give us a date. He is still working daily on the project, but he says he can't release an app where functions are not complete/not working as intended - especially after all the time already spent on development. 

He did confirm that the Notifications pull-down issue in Android Oreo 8.1 (which is NOT a Poweramp bug by the way, Google broke customised notifications) will be re-programmed around for Android 8+ by the time the next beta is issued.

Ohh so it will take 2018 .Happy New Year Guys

I didn't change versions between switching phones so... Yeah lol, it worked for me.  It said it failed but when I checked my EQ list and such everything was the way it was when I backed up (besides the EQs I deleted being restored, but that's normal)

 

Wow! Ok when I saw "Failed" I just assumed it didn't work. I never checked or noticed a difference. I will have to try it out then and report back here. Thanks super!

I honestly don't care that much about the Hi-Res thing, cuz I feel it just provides a volume change not a change in quality, but that's me. But I'm sure a lot of ppl want it. Also, I was told by Alex or Support Team that the ONLY way to get AptX HD with Poweramp is to enable Hi-Res Audio Output, or else it just uses AptX I guess. I don't use wireless headphones, so for me it doesn't matter, but a lot of ppl do these days, so for them it would def make a difference as AptX HD they say does sound better noticeably better than AptX.

Again, due to the lack of updates recently, don't worry to much if stuff fails. Its just that comparability with new roms and jew version of Android are a but shakey and not 100% compatible.

Okay. I've never been a wireless guy, so I can't comment much on AptX. I've always been told, "wired sounds better than wireless." so I just assumed that if people cared enough for high res, they were probably using wired. Oops, assuming things in 2017. :/

Yeah. I will check it later and see. 

I agree, wired IS better. But at some point soon I believe we will FINALLY be in a place where wireless actually does match wired sound. Advances in wireless tech like AptX HD will be the reason for that eventually occurring.

Back in May when people were saying after Max said he couldn't release it then because he kept running into problems and people said by the end of the year it would probably still be in development I thought they were joking

Just tried it super.................got the "failed/can't read file" message. When I checked the EQs I could see it did NOT import the file at all. None of the new EQs were showing up, only the previous ones. Tried it again, but had the same result. Oh well. lol

It will happen, eventually, but too late to care about.

Did we even get a source straight from the devs saying, "Yes, the new revamp will be released on January 1st." If we did, I never saw it. A rumor will always be a rumor, and if there anything to learn, it's that rumors are never true. Rumor said the new iPhone does this. Nope. Rumor says the new amd gpu does that. Nope. 

Lesson here. Don't listen to something that's not fully backed up. 

Also, you give 1* reviews to apps that are broken/ do not work or if it's just not worth it. Poweramp still works well as a music player and functions well. Sire, I suppose the high res support isn't best for AptX HD, but other than that, I see no reason for down votes and bad reviews.

But I do agree with the one poster here............. it would be nice to get regular updates from the Poweramp team 

I wish Max would spend a bit of time updating the users here too. He doesn't frequent these forums any more as he found that too many threads like this one became a waste of his time, and any time he spent debating things here was time away from actually doing something useful. But a simple monthly progress update would go a long way towards curbing the more excessively entitled whingers. ;)

He and/or his Support Team just responded to me earlier this morning. Pretty vague though.  

 

Hello from Poweramp support team!
We are still working on it hard.


Thanks!

I'm not even on 8.0 and I find that my Bluetooth controls "go to sleep" and then only respond once I turn on my screen.  They work fine with other players.
