  • New PowerAmp version comes with a ton of new improvements

    While finding a music player app on Android is not difficult, given the large number of options available, PowerAmp remains one of the best music players the platform has to offer. PowerAmp has seen a gread deal of updates over time but lately the update fervency has drooped significantly. That is because it works perfectly and all it needs is support for new devices. Another reason for the developers to prefer less frequent is that they release test builds before a major update finally reaches the Play Store. PowerAmp’s new version (2.0.6) brings a great deal of improvements, especially for Ice Cream Sandwich, HTC X and translation that we will not mention. List of changes below:

    • build 504: fixed some compatibility issues with ikorolkov’s skins
    • build 504: even more workarounds for Meizu MX
    • build 503: fixed Large widget for Samsung Galaxy Note @ ICS
    • build 503: improved notification controls/optional << notification button
    • build 503: added HTC Sound Enhancement support (HTC FX @ Tone/Vol screen, doesn’t work on HTC One X)
    • build 503: added workarounds for Meizu MX
    • build 502: fixed issue with folders hierarchy/music folders selection
    • build 501: improved compatibility with 3rd party skins
    • HTC One X support
    • added support for Dolby effect on HTC DHD@2.3
    • settings revamp, Honeycomb/ICS optimized
    • action bars support for Honeycomb/ICS
    • additional action bars options for ICS
    • improved build-in skins for tablets
    • background folders scan
    • additional scanning options
    • BT resume/pause support (ICS)
    • improved multiple storages scan (e.g. on SGS2)
    • improved music folder selection
    • folders/library layout improvements
    • a bit sharper icons
    • large widget now spans whole screen on Samsung Galaxy Note
    • added workaround for rare Samsung CPU issue causing Poweramp crash
    • fixed issue with list multiple selection (ICS)
    • few other bug fixes and improvements
