Poweramp v3 beta-preview-build-790 - Not yet feature-complete, read first post before commenting

Recommended Posts

@maxmp Any chance you could release the version with black theme before you complete the work in library section? Love both the black themes.

Speaking with my "user voice" hat on, it does seem a bit strange to move the toolbar panels (which previously could be auto hidden anyway) in order to meet user requests that there be less clutter over the cover artwork, but then add more text over it anyway. When polled, the vast majority of users did not seem to like the concept at all: 7% were happy with it as per build 790, another 6% would he happy if the corners were rounded and it matched in nicely with the rest of the interface, but the other 87% wanted at least the possibility of moving the title/artist/album text away from the artwork area completely, perhaps overlaid over the seekbar area (that text does not need to be clickable, so it would not interfere with seekbar operation). The current text area doesn't even scroll back and forth to show longer titles on smaller screens like it used to, it just truncates with an ellipsis.

The old method of briefly tapping the cover art to display the extra control icons seemed to work very well before (and caused less of a problem whenever the artwork area was inadvertently touched, as doing so did not leave the current screen) so perhaps the controls could be reverted back to that overlay method, thus freeing up plenty of space below the artwork for song title/etc? 

This does seem to be something that ought to be a high priority to address though, and not something achieved via skins. Perhaps this discussion could be continued in the other thread though (https://forum.powerampapp.com/topic/11359-poll-where-should-the-titleartistalbum-wording-be-displayed-overlaid-over-cover-art-or-below-it/), to avoid cluttering up this one?

Well said and explained.  I wish there was a like button or thanks button for posts lol.

There was a user poll in which Max asked what priority users placed on several areas that still need completing during interim releases of the beta version. The vast majority of users (over 60%) wanted all of the original features (Libraries, sorting, etc) restored as the most urgent priority for the next release, then after that came updating of the high-res audio engine for newer devices, and definitely in last-place (about 15%) was adding the dark interface.

So far, audio engine updates have been addressed first (via the 705-709 test builds), the dark interface is pretty much done judging by Max's recent screenshots,  and he says that restoring the Library/etc features is still in progress. So I think development requirements probably overrode the requests of the poll... :)

@Seve-s Yes, 704 build applied lenovo hi-fi flag (0x4000), but this results in 16-bit output. That was changed in build 709 by other users request to enable 24-bit output. As I wrote before, it can be resolved by specific option to enable/disable OEM variant.

Non-pro light and black skins retain current draggable wave seekbar and overall layout.

 

Thank you! I love the current UI!

1. I think the difference between black and black pro is one comes with older seek bar and the pro comes with new seek bar just an assumption not sure though. I don't think that you have to pay any extra for a built in theme again an assumption not sure though, even if it is I don't mind to pay Poweramp cost much less than any other crap out there in the play store

2. I guess I already answered

Black = Black Theme for standard Displays

Black Pro = Black Theme for AMOLED Displays

Wow a long time no see from me :) Even high-res over Bluetooth works perfectly now. The interface is nearly flawless and it looks incredible.... I'm speechless on how this player became! Great great great job!

Only notable bug I can confirm is the wrong parentheses on the timestamp in track info, but that's such a tiny detail haha, it's just perfect otherwise.

Sorry for being offtopic, where can I donate to Max? My original purchase was over 4 years ago, I'd like to give something back again.

I'll be fascinated to see how this works, as rather than the seekbar being reduced in height to make space for a row of buttons, the buttons appear to be overlaid over it. I'm not quite sure how you seek without passing your finger over the buttons, or vice versa?

Andre

Patience you must have my young padawan; The answer you seek resides in what @maxmp said about "Black Pro". Repeat what he said and you'll find your answer.

Nope thats not the difference.. 

Pro skin will have Prev/next song buttons and a fully seekable wavebar. Also some tweakings elsewhere

That's not correct either. Please reread @maxmp follow up post about the different skins and functionality.

When that is released, as part of the next beta build, there will most likely be a new thread to discuss it. Keep en eye on the forums.

What? New forum post/thread! 

No way, @maxmp is doing that! The new updated beta release and follow-up tweaked releases will be posted here only or at least their links will be provided here if by any chance it's posted on a diff. thread!

Hope not getting rid of the no button option because I like that better with gestures than buttons. The buttons with wave under is just fugly to me.

I also think gestures are better than buttons

By forum requests, added settings to enable/disable skin options:
- static seekbar
- extra buttons

Also, these options are per skin and 3rd party skin developers can implement any number of toggleable options as they seems fit.
