Yup lol

Max needs to stop trying to perfect everything and just set and MEET a deadline already. Just imagine if everyone acted this way? You'd never have any new music, any new TVs, smartphones, headphones, cars, computers, etc etc. All I care about is that the bugs in Alpha 704 get fixed. Then it's just RELEASE the damn thing! So when I get a new phone I won't have to set my custom EQs manually once again like I have been over the last year. And as long as 1% incremental volume stays too. That is a MUST have for me. No more "too loud/too soft" crap for me.

@RockStar2005, Max can decide what to do without any advice.

Well apparently not. In case you haven't noticed, he's missed at least a few deadlines. There's a lot of unhappy people on here, people who paid money for this app too.

Nothing. So why not shut up until there is something to discuss about Poweramp?

Inb4 Max gets fed up, releases the beta tomorrow, and it's absolutely unusable because the UI hasn't been finished, there's a ton of placeholder buttons and layouts then everyone gets pissed at Max for releasing an unfinished/unusable beta.

@RockStar2005, Max never had deadline, it was just approximate dates. You can giving advice after you show to us some big project that you realized.

Whatever dude

Off-topic requests for support on other products removed.

Max is not trying to "perfect" every little detail of v3 before the next beta release, he simply needs to make it work as a complete app. There's no point releasing a beta which does not function. Sadly that is taking a lot more time than even he expected, and those who wish to stay with Poweramp will just have to be patient and use the currently released versions until it's done.

Bene, apparentemente no. Nel caso non l'avessi notato, ha mancato almeno alcune scadenze. C'è un sacco di persone infelici qui, persone che hanno pagato soldi anche per questa app. 

 

to be honest ... you paid for Poweramp ver 2 ... and this version exists and works well too. so all this frustration from where it comes from?

Please provide the full screen album art and transparent buttons on it...

A lot of people asked for this over the years (it used to be an option in Poweramp v2) and I must admit I would prefer it too. However the latest sample photos of the new v3 beta-test interface (a few pages back in this thread) seem to be going in the opposite direction - for example the title and artist name are now overlaid in black boxes on top of the album art, along with even more overlaid buttons than before. Hopefully there will be options to control this, as I'm sure Max must be aware that people who want album art to be displayed tend to want it to be fully visible, but I really can't say for sure.

Yeah they paid for this app, updates are free which you did not pay for.

If you aren't happy, go build your own app.

Actually, I would. Open source apps are awesome (totally not promoting Phonograph), it's just convenient and explicit: you can browse through the code to discern whether the author of the app plays tricks on you and do some fishy coding or not, henceforth enables you to contribute - something that could have accelerated the development of Poweramp dramatically. But no.

I'm curious how the lock screen will look too when the beta gets released

How did you decide that this guy should show something to someone? Enough to write any nonsense.

I think the point was that it's all too easy for people on the internet to feel in some way "entitled" to a new version of an app (they are not - any payments made are to allow use of the current version, anything else is a nice bonus) and that the "lazy dev" should somehow work harder and faster to meet their individual demands - at least 26 hours a day going by some of the comments here.

To which to answer was, if it's so easy and quick to write then why not do it yourself? Then it would be exactly as you want it and finished to your own timeline.

Okay, it would be nice to have an update after so long. But, there's nothing wrong w/ Max taking his time. He's a bit of a perfectionist, as I am myself. It's really hard to just throw something unfinished out there, especially when we're dealing w/ life. Plus, as it's been said before, it's not like he's charging us for it. He's taking time out of every day to make something nice for us and you guys are giving him shit for it. Be patient and stop acting as if you're entitled to your gift.

First of all, go make your own app if you want all the features you like. It's that simple. As a developer like max, I know how frustrating this can be. However, it is clear that @maxmp needs to communicate more with his customers. And as for people talking about updates being free, I don't think updates should be paid for. If you knew you were getting an obsolete or soon to be obsolete product, you wouldn't have bought it. I think being loyal to your customers is a required trait as a developer and I think @maxmp should communicate more with his customers and listen to opinions more openly. His last visit was last year, september. I think he should clearly work on that. Also, for people asking for ETAs and to meet deadlines, it's really hard to work by oneself as a developer (although I don't understand why @maxmp is working solo.. there should be many people to volunteer or get paid to work with him), and you should appreciate how much effort he's (probably) putting in to this application. You should really try making your own app from scratch if you still don't understand. I know we all want the next version fast, but we also want it bug-free and in a working condition. So for everyone out there, let's just wait for a few more weeks. And for @maxmp, I think you should release more in between beta/alpha builds to build trust with your customers. I hope everyone including @maxmp reads this. Well, all of the above is just a suggestion and not a requirement I'm setting to anyone, so.... Yeah.. Also, if you've read 'till here, I'm amused! :o
