Wat is PowerAMP?

PowerAMP (later waarschijnlijk PowerMP (Powerful Music Player), wegens copyright issues) is een muziekspeler voor Android.

Het voordeel van PowerMP tegenover de standaar muziekspelers van Android is dat deze veel meer bestanden ondersteund en meestal ook handiger in gebruik is.

Een lijst van functies van PowerAMP (in het Engels):

Main Screen
  • PowerAMP main screen has large album art, which supports swipes on it
  • optionally, embed song lyrics can be shown over album art, press album art area to close/reopen it
  • PowerAMP will automatically search and download missing album art (if such option is enabled in settings), or it will look in containing folder for appropriate image (in Folders mode), or will query Android System Library for the image (in Library mode)
  • long press on album art area opens Select Album Art screen
  • there are additional list-switching buttons, which navigate to the previous/next folder/album/artist/playlist, etc.

Ik gebruik deze op mijn HTC Desire HD en hij bevalt echt meer dan goed. Dit is daardoor ook de enige app waarvoor ik ooit betaald heb (A) In de auto pair ik mijn telefoon vaak met onze autoradio, waarna PowerAMP vanzelf begint met afspelen. Hierdoor hoef ik dus helemaal niks te regelen.

En door de hoeveelheid mogelijkheden en instellingen, is de app zo goed als 100% naar eigen smaak aan te passen :) Super.

Inderdaad, vooral het automatisch afspelen/stoppen bij het verbinden/weghalen van een headset is handig tijdens de les met irritante medeleerlingen naast je :p

Ik ga in het weekend verder met de review.
