DarXide Posted March 7, 2014 Share Posted March 7, 2014 Who actually uses the comment field in the ID3 tags of songs? Perhaps no oneWho has at least once lost a playlist of theirs that they spent a lot of time and effort creating? Perhaps everyone Who would like to have a song permanently remember which playlist it was a part of? Certainly everyoneThis is what this feature intends to achieve, via "tags" i.e. comment boxesMessage for Poweramp team:I have yet to get an outside opinion on this, but given how many people love categorizing and organizing their music, this feature may be ground-breaking. So it would be something to seriously consider. "Permanent Playlists" sounds attractive, and this concept is incredibly simple to implement. This is your entire music collection You type in a keyword such as "gym" and the list filters songs that have at least "gym" in its comment field You can add more keywords to make your list even more specific, this brings up songs that have "gym, crazy" in the comment field And the list can be made even more specific. Of course, the 3 results mean that there are only 3 songs with at least the following tags: gym, crazy, instrumental Comment fields are where these tags will be. These tags can be edited into the song by 1) via Poweramp itself (Max will need to enable comment field being edited. Will take a LONG while to tag your entire collection cause the tagging is one song at a time) Example: or 2) Using a software like MP3Tag on a computer or another ID3 editor app, and mass-tagging a bunch of songs' comment field. Example: (look at the left side comment box) Of course, there can be tons of other additions to this. The simplest edition:- All the Poweramp team/max needs to do is somehow make it able to search the comment field of a song. This can be enabled (so it doesn't interfere with normal searching) by first typing in [tags] (like in the picture) or [comment] or some other way/button.- Make each comment box of a song edit-able in the "Info/Tags" edit screenThe best edition: The above two features... plus:- Comment filtering can be "Match only one tag," "Match any," "Match at least" etc- Songs can be multi-selected within Poweramp itself and then have one/two/ten tags apply to all of their comment fields The BEST part about this feature is it is permanent!Changing your phone/tablet/device?Factory resetting your phone?Categorizing your music into different folders?Transferring your music to another memory card?Changing the filename of a song?It won't matter! All your tags will still be saved permanently on the songs. Organize your music knowing you will never lose your "tags" i.e. playlists. Comments/Opinions/Questions/Criticism?
