It seems like this feature request has been stale for almost two years now! If anyone's interested I finally found an Android music player that supports song ratings between different devices, "PlayerPro".

 

From their site.

 

"Import and export music history and ratings from your favorite desktop music player: Songbird, Winamp, Windows Media Player, MediaMonkey ..."

I'm using this app almost two years and I very like it, but now after I organized my library in MediaMonkey and ratings, I really need rating feature in my phone and if Poweramp will not add it I would look for something alse which support rating from the tag (not ratings from its own datebase which is for me pretty useless) Do not see Poweramp that you are loosing costumers promising this feature for years ?

Yep, this is plain crazy. No rating to tag function, so no persistence in the music files themselves. And even worse, no separate export/import/backup of song ratings. It takes A LONG TIME to rate your song collection, its unacceptable that when you buy a new phone/ reset your old phone there is no way to transfer the ratings.

 

This has been a feature request for over two years W.T.Fudge...

The third-party app New Playlist Manager from forum regular Theoklink apparently now does this, it can write ratings that you have created in Poweramp back into the original music file. PA still can't read or write the tags directly though, it's been on the feature 'to do' list for more than four years, so hopefully soon now!

In testing the latest version of New Playlist Manager on android AVD (Android Virtual Device) Marsmallow, I notice that when I select Update mp3 tag, it generates a crash for Poweramp.


It appears to be related to a permission issue when my app tries to access the provider //com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/.  Anyone using my app with Marshmallow? Are you having this issue? 


I will post this also in the developer section with some additional detail.

Whao, I just bought Poweramp without realising that I would not have been able to import my ratings from windows.

It took me a very long time to rate my music and to me it is a very important issue.

If the developers have been promising it for 4y and it is not here yet, it means that they were kidding and that are not serious about it.

You will not get 5stars on Google pay from me.

Well, I've now abandoned all hope that Poweramp will ever handle Ratings in a way that's even remotely useful... but it's still very disappointing, seeing how passionate the PA community is (was) about this feature and how it's been consistently ignored and blown off. And I guess that speaks volumes of the developer. The app advances to a certain point, it's seen as "good enough", then it's no longer supported (or the updates are painfully minor) and users are forced to shift to another option.

iSyncr + PlayerPro is a combo that's far from perfect, but at least it's able to accomplish what Poweramp has been promising for five years.

The updates to audio quality are amazing, but you're right that the subject of file-based ratings don't seem to have a high priority (and to be fair, there are lots of conflicting ways to do it - if Max implemented, one method then it wouldn't work with something else - and probably never with iTunes, which also uses its own database rather than embedding data, and never with some audio formats such as MKA). According to Max, there's rather a lot more to it than meets the eye and I think he feels it's not as justified as spending his time on making the audio quality better.
