Navigating gets worse instead of better


Recommended Posts

Its sad that I have to say that the last updates made the player even worse instead of better.

Instead of minimazing the wasted space in Folder view, there is now even more wasted space with even bigger sized folders and empty space. With over 200 Artists it is simply no longer possible to scroll with one hand.

Why is it not possible to make a folder list like in "Music Folder Player" where one Folder is exactly one line high ? If that one was gapless I would change in a heartbeat.

 

How can I revert to revert to an earlier Version in Android ? Is this possible at all ?

Or in other words:

With Poweramp in folderview I see 4 artists on my display at once.

With Music Folder Player I see 21 artists on my display at once....

 

I don't care about the folder symbols/album covers in that situation. The must be a way to turn them off and have a simple list view....

I understand that there should be more options for configuring the size of folder/album art within lists (and hopefully to omit them completely if desired, I'd find that useful too as like you I use folders rather than ID3 tags to sort my music) in the upcoming Poweramp v3 release.

See http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/6948-album-art-is-always-a-problem-in-poweramp/ for Max's comments when I raised the same general point.

Might I suggest a pinch-to-zoom zoom control when viewing by Folders? (And in album view within Library as well)

What a good idea! Smallest being text only, and zooming the size of thumbnails up from very small all the way up to grid size. Maybe Max could think about that for v3?

Apreciate that! Yeah, it's simple, intuitive, and won't take up any space in the options menu. And it provides a live preview of how big or small the grid size is.

 

Maybe do a two step pinch-to-zoom to bring it to list format, so zooming "out" (pinching in) will stop at small thumbnails, and would require lifting off the screen, then redoing the action to bring it down one step further to text/list only.
