A: The program can be purchased throughGoogle Play Market, throughYandex.Storeor atofficial website.
How to make purchases on the market is written in detail in the topicBuying paid programs in the Market
To buy a player on the site, you need to go to the site.http://powerampapp.com/, click on the "Buy" button and follow the link "Buy Now, Directly (.apk)"
You get to the order formhttps://secure.payproglobal.com/orderpage.a...?products=47845

When buying through the Market, the program checks the license TWO times:
1st time - immediately upon purchase,

At these moments, the program connects to the Internet. If after 48 hours the Internet is not available, the program tries to connect to the Internet each time it starts up, until it succeeds in checking the license.

This method is not a whim of the author, but is a requirement of Google, so it is not negotiable.

Q: How to assign an equalizer preset to a track / folder / artist, etc.
A: You can assign either a newly created preset or an existing one. Let us analyze the situation from scratch by the example of preset assignment to a folder. Appointment to the artist / genre / track / album / headphones / speakers, etc. are done similarly.
In the main player window, click the menu, then the folder / library. Go to the folder. Select the desired folder and long click on it. In the pop-up menu, click to play.
While playing tracks from the folder, go to the equalizer, set up it as we need (in the PM is not only the sliders, but also the tone, etc.) and click save. Fall save menus in which you must enter the name and the inscription is below - "is automatically applied to:" and there put the check next to "Folder". Everything. For tracks that were in that folder will be automatically apply these settings. Be careful, until such appointment is only for subfolders, the whole root folder so designate fail. For sections of the library (artist / genre / album, etc.) difficulties with the appointment no.

Q: How to teach a player to search for lyrics on the Internet?
A: The player can independently extract the lyrics from tags. If there is no text, then you can use the plugin MusiXmatch (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.m....android.lyrify)
The priority of the places to search for texts is selected in the settings (Settings / Interface settings / Words).

Popular English-language songs are looking great, but problems may arise with Russians.

Q: When the phone is locked, it starts to terribly slow down the * .ape format. What can it be connected with?
A: * .ape heavy format. To play it, significantly more phone resources are required than to play, for example, mp3 or flac.
When the phone cannot provide the necessary amount of resources (for example, when the screen is locked) * .ape begins to stutter. The appearance of the problem is most likely on non-fast machines.
To solve the problem, there are several ways, for example, to make a root and raise the frequency of the processor in the background, but this will adversely affect the battery life of the phone.
The easiest way to solve the problem is to convert * .ape to another format. This can be done, for example, using xrecode II or similar programs.

Q: What kind of menu crashes when you tap on the cover and how to remove it? And why some elements do not disappear, even if there is no this menu?
A: This is a quick access menu for presets, equalizer, tone, repeat and shuffle settings and rating. To open / close it you need to tap on the cover.
In the interface settings (menu->Settings->interface settings) you can set different behavior for the buttons - you can hide them, make them visible always, but not pushable, you can see and click, etc.
A short tapa on the equalizer / tone / preset will take you to the corresponding windows, a short tapa on the equalizer / tone will turn them on / off, a long tap on the presets will take you to the equalizer.
At the bottom of the tapu for mixing / repeating, the available options will change. For a long tapa on repeat / shuffle, a menu will appear with all possible repeat / shuffle options.
Below in the middle you can tap and set the rating of the current composition.

Q: Is it possible to somehow customize the behavior of the player when you click on a track in the playlist?
A: Yes. You can make it so that when you click on a track on the list, the track starts playing and you stay on the list or go to the player. There is also a function that by clicking on the track, the track will be added to the queue and you will remain in the list.
To customize the desired behavior you need to go to the menu->Settings->additional settings->lists->click on the list

A: In terms of functionality, nothing. The only time limit is 2 weeks.

Rep: (384)
Q: How many times is the license checked and will I have to buy again if I change the phone?
A: When buying from the market, the license is checked 2 times, first with the purchase, and then after 48 hours.This is not a whim of the author, it is the requirements of the market! (from a site, 1 time, results of check are cached).
You buy the player 1 time to your Google account, and even when you replace the phone, if the same Google account remains, the player remains purchased.

Q: I have an alternative lock screen and the player lock screen does not work correctly with it (does not appear, appears with a delay, sometimes appears and sometimes not, etc.). How to overcome it?
A: It is difficult to overcome this if only the developers of the specific lock screen and the author of the player make special support. Different lock screens are very bad friends, but as an option, you can just hang the player widget on an alternative lock screen, if of course it supports widgets.

Rep: (384)
Q: Strains every time to press "more" in each menu?
A: You will be helped by the menu settings->Settings->interface settings->open menu - menus will always be full.

Rep: (384)
Q: Why is the player playing quieter than others? And what is DVC?
A: All normal tracks are normally normalized, i.e. dynamic range is almost completely used. If you amplify any frequencies with an equalizer, you need a range, depending on the selected gain level. The player has overload protection. When you turn on the equalizer, the preamp (the leftmost slider) moves down, and the overall volume goes down to get the necessary dynamic range.
To make the sound louder in versions 1.x and 2.x (on devices without Direct Volume Control), you need to raise the preamp up to reach the desired volume.
Be careful, too high pre-amplification can lead to overloading and the sound can start wheezing, farting and having other distortions associated with going beyond the dynamic range. At 2.x, the "Limit" button can help get rid of these distortions.
If, for example, you do not need to strengthen anything, or you need to weaken something on the contrary, the preamp can be unscrewed to max, thereby using the full dynamic range.
On devices with Direct Volume Control, the sound volume should be similar to the volume of the stock player (provided that the preamp is set to 0). If the volume / sound is very different and / or you hear by ear that the player is playing quieter / worse, then it is the fault of the firmware developers who could not properly implement Direct Volume Control. I advise you to disable it in the player.

Direct Volume Control - direct volume control. Thanks to him, the player has a greater dynamic range equalizer for 2.3 devices, which allows for example to set the bass to max. without a hint of distortion and without reducing the volume compared with the stock player (in the middle position of the preamp).

Q: The widget from PowerAMP 2.0 (from the set of widgets) turns white / does not work after the phone is rebooted.
A: This can occur if something blocks the launch of PowerAMP on reboot or update the widget - task managers, tweaks of autostart. If you use these applications / tweaks, you must add PowerAMP (and / or a set of widgets) to the exclusion list.
