Task bar

Recommended Posts

i don't know if this is possible but In the pull down android task bar if you could add forward, backward, and play/ pause buttons that would be phenomenal so that when using the phone speakers or headphones without a remote I wouldn't have to switch to power amp everyone I want to change the song.

Thanks for the request.

It's possible, but Android will close that status bar pull down window on each press, this makes no point in having > or other navigation button there. Also, the size of the "block" is limited and fixed, i.e. buttons will take the space from song info. This is serious usability issue in Android below 3.0, this is why it's not implemented by PowerAMP (or other apps). Honeycomb though allows some controls there.

I see your point. What about perhaps using a double tap on the volume buttons for forward and backward? I can see how some people wouldn't like this but I think as an option it'd be useful.

Hey - I was looking to request the exact same thing for Honeycomb. Would be cool to be able to popup the Poweramp taskbar and navigate/play/pause songs. Is this planned for a future release?

Thanks

For Android 3.0 it's possible and I'm looking into adding this in future updates. Most probably will come with the optimized skins for honeycomb.

Thanks!
