Alternative layout

Recommended Posts

@maxmp Version 815 Version is very good and too much if it is possible to add the ability to outgoing and entering tags from the artist album. Additional option in the user interface can help this. Setting> General >player UI >alternative Display {Default theme alternative-Poweramp Alternative layout-Do not display labels

}

+1 for a do not display labels with the option to only show the song title would be very usefull. Artist and album info are displayed on the cover most of the time and folder hierarchy users can display the folder name (most of the time the album title) in the bottom of the screen. Maybe artis - year - album label can be added to the infotag in the bottom of the screen?

It would be great if Max could implement a 'custom' format for both the upper (larger) and lower (smaller) lines of text, settable per each List Options view and also separately for the Player UI. The pretty-much standard notation of using % tags would be perfect - such as "%artist% (%year%") %album%" for example. Could even add a basic small/medium/large font-size control at the same time.

Not sure whether that would mess up transition animations, but some users might prefer that kind of control over fancy animations anyway.

@maxmp I +1 these ideas.  This is an excellent thing and no reason the newer (i.e. should be better) version of Poweramp shouldn't have this built in.  I've been using "MusicBee" as my desktop music player for many years and being able to choose which info is displayed and on which lines is a built-in part of it, and whatever space is leftover is given to album art and stuff like that.  Even the Poweramp widget allows us to choose what info we display and what size the fonts are and that sort of thing... no reason the Poweramp main UI shouldn't allow that (as it's the main UI I spend more time looking at anyway).

My biggest (basically only) complaint with Poweramp V3 is that the album art size shrunk in "alternative" mode (or got covered with tags that obscure the album art in "normal" mode)... and the screen real estate was given to other unnecessary things that weren't in the basic UI from Poweramp V2 (which is when I paid for the app).

So these ideas in this topic are the best of everything: they give each user access to the info they want to display (which can include making the album size bigger in "alternative" layout if the user chooses to give less space to the other tags) but without losing the other new and better features of Poweramp V3.  PLEASE implement this!  Give us (if possible) some way to make a borderless album art without obscuring it with tags on top of it (such as we had in the Poweramp v2 UI layout).

It would be nice if in the alternative Layout only show "music name - artist" in one line . Maybe centralized...
