Sort by Artist / Album Year

Recommended Posts

Would it be possible to add a field for sorting by artist and then year in the library view?

For example:

Radiohead - Pablo Honey (1993)

Radiohead - In Rainbows (2007)

Rather than the current

Radiohead - In Rainbows (2007)

Radiohead - Pablo Honey (1993)

I'm completely OCD about my music organisation and this is one feature of iTunes that I really like.

Thanks

I use Folders mode myself, and if I want stuff sorted that way I just name the folders accordingly. e.g:

/Music/Albums/Radiohead/1993 Pablo Honey
/Music/Albums/Radiohead/2007 In Rainbows

The ID3 tags aren't affected that way, so all the artist, album, tile, etc tags look fine in the player screen.

alternatively, you could use a third party tool such as New Playlist Manager which has many select and sort options. Additionally, you can view your Poweramp playlists and launch pa playlists from within the app .

Furthermore, you can update the ID3v2 POPM tag with your Pa ratings but its latest feature is that you now can export your Pa ratings (and later import them again), something you can not do in Pa.

Lots of good features in your app, it's almost becoming a 'power-user' interface for Poweramp.

Andre, thank you for your comment. I have one question outstanding in the developer subforum whether i can add entries to a playlist using the current api. If it is possible, the playlist functionality in pa could be delivered by my app with bells and whistles?
