Need a complete backup solution

Recommended Posts

Lets get serious here folks.

Virtually every credible Android app has a backup and restore solution, either using the Google account, an app-specific online account or save/restore to a local SD card. Poweramp does not.

After spending months tagging ratings on songs, updating album art in some cases, dialing in equalizer settings, didding the many many settings within the app, don't even think about resetting the device to factory default or replacing it. All your personalizations are gone. (I don't use Titanium backup - I don't root my phone.)

So either don't bother with using ratings or loading album art since all of your work is throwaway. Typically you don't get to find that out until you try to restore your device, then it’s a slap in the face.

Now, on the hand, the developers could chose to solve the problem that they claim is difficult. I've developed enough software over the years to truly believe that a robust solution could be made. Perhaps its just priorities. I think it’s a basic, fundamental feature that every credible app should have. This is a serious gap.

Good to hear, although that post is from Oct 2011. When do you plan to release this feature?

Do understand that I like this app a lot. I have a 32GB SD card full of music and use this app daily. I have paid for the pro version, and well worth it.

Regards,

Carbon Backup does not require root. I hear very good things, but haven't tried it myself. The very first thing I do with any device I get is root and install Titanium Backup. :)

Edit: Don't get me wrong, I still think it's a useful feature for Poweramp to provide, and an in-app solution could be much more effective. I just wanted to point out another solution to use in the meantime for anyone in need of a backup solution and unwilling to root their device. :)

please PLEASE implement a backup option of playlists and all settings for this wonderful application. An occasional restart on my galaxy s3 causes me to lose all of my playlist and equalizer settings which then requires hours and hours of wasted time.

Just upgraded to the latest version and lost ALL my settings! Took me a long time to remember and reset to my preferences. Please, it is LONG past time that this feature (necessity!) should be added. Please put some more resources to address this!
