Question about shuffle mode and folder access

Recommended Posts

Shuffle: Once I select shuffle to play a genre it seems to stay that way forever. When I later just want to listen to a record, the shuffle mode stays on and its annoying to have to remember each time. And I don't. Is what I'm describing true or is there a setting I'm missing?

 

Folder access: I used to be able to go directly to Folder/Library from the music player itself. That seems to have disappeared and now I have to backtrack to be able to access that option. Is this true and have things changed or again am I  missing something?

 

Thanks.

1 -  Yes it is true Shuffle and Repeat modes stay the way you set them.

2 - Please try this in Poweramp menu: Settings=>Look and Feel=> Menus=>Action Bar (check it), it should bring your Library icon back to the screen.

Thanks

Suggestion for accessing folders worked. Thanks for the info.

 

I would suggest changing the default status of repeat and shuffle, but it's a small annoyance in the face of this great player.

I think that the fact the the shuffle mode stays where YOU put it is fine. Though maybe there could be a way of setting the 'start up defaults' which is user settable?

I suggested a long time ago that it would make more sense for the Shuffle and Repeat icons to act as on/off toggles when tapped once, and to use long-press to bring up a popup letting you choose the type of Repeat or the Shuffle mode that will be used.

 

I think most people tend to have a standard method which they use most of the time, and the ability to simply turn that on or off with a single tap would be better.

 

But whichever way it works, the settings should be sticky between sessions.
