Searching for titles

Recommended Posts

  1. "Search" -> "list options" does not include the category "titles". "All songs", which really ought to be labelled "all catagories", finds tracks where the search string appears in either the album name, the artist name or the track title and so gives many false positives. For example, searching for "william" can give far more tracks where the artist name contains "william" (or "williams") than tracks with the string actually in the title.

Also the  on the far right of the search string entry box does not work.

There is no "titles" category, unfortunately, in Poweramp.

Search searches for track titles, though, as well as album/artists and few other tags.

Yes, by default, you do get a search that includes titles, but also all tracks with the search string in the album, or artist etc. I gave an example when I raised this topic of why such a search can be almost useless.

Incidentally the search facility in V2 of Poweramp had exactly this problem, that is it searched album, artist etc as well as title. Fortunately in V2 there was a work-around; don't use search at all but go to the "all songs" list and apply a filter. Filters seem to have disappeared from V3.

Just adding "titles" to the categories in "list options: search" is surely not that difficult.
