peterabelard Posted December 14, 2010 Share Posted December 14, 2010 I'm not really sure about it, but it seems there is some difference after the last update. Changing artist>album>playlist>album>artist via the player's navigation seems to be slower than before.This is probably not the case with faster phones, but on my Wildfire which is a low-end device things might get slower when many new features are added. Don't get me wrong - everything is getting better and I love the new additions. Poweramp is improving and even now it's by far the best android music player feature-wise. However, please consider the fact that the low-end devices like Wildfire are becoming extremely popular. Perhaps in a year or two, when entry-level devices will have the power of, say, HTC Desire, it will cease to be an issue. But as for now, a large portion of the market consists of slower phones which are too slow for sophisticated games (I can't even play Angry Birds..duh) or good movie playback.Apart from the great EQ, one of the reasons I switched to Poweramp is that it responded much quicker than the stock player (which is VERY slow on the Wildfire). I love the new features but responsiveness is as important. It is frustrating to have to wait just to perform simple actions such as changing an album.Poweramp is the first app I purchased on the market and I'm very glad I did, but please don't make it another feature-packed, yet clumsy program.I'd prefer to have less impressive visuals and better responsiveness, that's for sure.
