Download: PowerAmp, the New King of Music Players

A lot of music player talk lately has been about Winamp when it should have been about this app called PowerAMP.  From what I can tell it has been out for almost a week now and should be on everyone’s short list of apps to try this Halloween weekend.  I sat down with it for just a couple of minutes and tweaked enough settings on one track to feel like a true mixmaster.  

Download:  PowerAMP1.0.113.apk (New version!  Cheers Jason!)

Some of the Features:

-MP3, MP4/M4A,loseless ALAC,FLAC, OGG, WAV, TTA, WMA
-Has own codecs
-Widget
-Choose music from SD card
-Tegs, lyrics
-Skins, 2 in beta version
-Fast scan of files ( in 1 second 1000files, depends on phone speed)
-EQ

For a full walk-through and a good laugh, check out the video below.

Cheers Jason!

    Best player out there and I have tried most of them. Well worth the $5.00 price! Plus it plays OGG & FLAC!

  • Kleck096

    Just one question. First off this player puts the default one to shame and I am definitely buying it but how do you make it play songs in just one album?

  • Mr2turbo15

    Its expired already!!

  • Mmoreimi

    Awesome app, but does anyone know how to get it to stop from scanning for new mp3 every time the phone boots up?

  • techblogger

    Just once, I'd like to see a video previewing a new sound mixer, mp3 player app, sample music I like.
    I hope you know I'm kidding. But the player looks pretty awesome to me. I'll give it a quick install.

    Noticed the build prop of this .apk file is 1.0 BUILD 113, the market link is 1.0 BUILD 204… anyone know the changes?

  • El El Kool J

    OK so this freakin beta ran out in like 2 day… wtf!! barely got to use it and I liked it.. how do we get the full version?

  • lobert

    Uh download isn't working, how much is it to buy?

  • Chris.Go

    What's with the terrorist sound track?

  • Clift

    Can one sort by genre? Because the stock Music Player, MixZing and even Winamp lack this basic functionality… :/

  • Travis Foley

    Installed and then it crashed my evo when I tried to play the first song… uninstalled.

  • Smooth

    Boys talk about a Huge #RAIL so I'm heading home from work and decided to listen to this Lick Azz appreciate pressed play only to get a note telling me that the trail period had ended with a non-functioning But button. FAIL FAIL FAIL

    connect to computer. Use pull down menu and hit USB Connected. when it pops up on computer drag the downloaded file to “SD Card”. diconnect from computer. Then using phone either A: open Rom Manager and click Install from SD or B: openAstro file manager and find in your SD Card and click it, then click install.
    OR just go to this website on your phone and click the link above.

    Where the hell is Kellex? No news in 2 days? STRIKE!!! STRIKE!!! STRIKE!!!

    • Mrpicolas

      lol its the weekend man we all gotta have some type of life

      • http://twitter.com/cnpalmer75 Ben

        Only type of life I know is the droid-life o_O

  • Billyrouth2000

    Theres a newer version out, has 3 widgets and downloads album art. Will post link later

  • Mymotodroid

    i defiantly understand the want for an equalizer for those Audiophiles out there. But in a more practical sense I prefer the app 3 by Filipe Abrantes. It navigating songs is a breeze and it's music controls through the lock screen is a God send for those gym goers out there.

  • brife

    Of no use if you stream your music which is the only way to do it.

  • Lakerzz

    Weird thing. My DX stopped “seeing” my pics and music from my sd card. I plug it in to the computer and I see everything on my card (on the computer). But I download this music app, and it “sees” my music no problem. *WHAT GIVES??* Now if he would make a just as awesome gallery app, I'd be able to see my pics from the sd card. Otherwise the sd card is ok…idk. :/

    • dblj

      I had the same kind of problem, the phone wasn’t finding any of my music but if i hooked up via usb it was all there. I noticed a file in the music folder named .nomedia, I deleted it and everything was visible again.

      • Lakerzz

        AWESOME!!!! THANKS!!!! I still don’t know what the hell it means, but it worked…THANKS AGAIN!!!! *WHEW* (got my music AND my pix back on my phone)

  • http://twitter.com/Six2Five George Pichon

    It's my new favorite music app

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=591569613 Balthazar Ruster

    Two things it's missing: Pause on headphone disconnect, and Artist > Album hierarchy. I don't usually listen to all of a band's songs at once, and I don't have everything perfectly organized in folders to the point that I can use that instead.

  • NerdPower

    App blew out my speaker on my incredible! :-(

    • dellbx

      Wow! How did that happen?

      • NerdPower

        I guess I had the bass and volume set too high or something but now its messed up. I gotta call Verizon monday….

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      dang dude

  • Archangel

    what no artwork import?

  • http://twitter.com/xmetl John Cunningham

    i like your theme, whats it called also what phone is it for?

  • Jem Harris

    Why is it that none of the good music players can read music from internal storage? All of my 8gigs going to waste…

  • Surfminded

    Seems like a great player, but what the heck is this monthly membership for the premium player? I uninstalled after seeing that.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      uhhhh… just what it says dude. for the premium player, you have to pay monthly. what was the point of uninstalling? u didnt pay for anything, you were using the free version obviously.

  • Chinaco

    The latest build has answered all my needs. The lock screen control and album art downloader are very nice additions. I'll definitely purchase this when it's released. It uses a little more resources than I'd like but I guess for something this powerful needs it. I hope the final release will include a performance enhancement. Regardless, my Android music experience is now complete with PowerAmp. Good work…NO…GREAT WORK DEV!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GH5RSAM3MRQIGB3TADUEGWCI3M Jon

    Maybe I am doing something wrong, But I downloaded this app, installed it, told it where my music was, and…… Nothing. Refuses to recognize any .mp3 files I have at all. Uninstalled. Bye.

  • Mediaspecialist

    When is this going to be in the market place?

  • dellbx

    This is awesome!!!

    Bit of a power hog. hope they get that addressed in the released version

  • jrican

    this app will sh**t on the rest of the media players.. haha awesome!!

  • Droid-ice

    If I download this will it mess up my droid 2 ?????

  • droidaholic

    I just noticed but what is an.droid-life.com ?

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      i wanna know too. cool layout anyway.

    • Chris Nimon

      Good question. Is this in preparation for when we retire the Droid :'(

    • Coachinsky

      gotta make some money

  • fallofshadows

    I installed the .apk and when I try to open the app, it says “initialization/folder scan” and then quits. Did I miss something?

  • CheeseLover
    • Brad

      Oh snap, this build has a lock screen widget, one that I like way better than Winamp's! Well, Winamp lasted all of a week or two with me. I don't feel too bad about dropping it though, since it's designed to interact with the desktop Winamp app, which is still a piece of junk. Now, if only the developer of PowerAMP would come out with a desktop syncing app as good as the player, that would be SWEET!!!

    • fallofshadows

      Thanks!

  • Higher_Ground

    I feel like it's just a matter of time until winamp includes an equalizer.. but if they don't then I'll probably come back for this. Any relation to dbPowerAmp? I remember using that program to convert audio files many moons ago..

  • Rob

    Does it support voice control?

  • InvaderDJ

    Are there any plans on this coming to the Market? I hate these third party .apks it is a pain to update them.

    • http://twitter.com/Exodus615 Michael Hall

      coming to the market Nov 1st

  • DroidVader

    I'm not denying the fact that most of the app suggestions posted on this site are good. With that said, is droid-life paid to promote specific apps?

    • dellbx

      Paid to promote FREE apps? How does the app creator make enough money on a free app to pay droid-life again?

      • DroidCares

        You’re obviously not very bright. First, the post was to find out “who knows” so asking the question is stupid. “Who cares?” obviously I do if I’m asking. I don’t think you understand how much money can be made from apps (whether it is paid or free apps with advertisement). Droid-life has such a large influence on the consumer that the mere suggestion of an app would create huge revenue. If Droid-life is paid then they could promote an app just for the sake of getting paid. Get an education dellbx.

          First of all, what you are insinuating is, not very nice. And if you believed that to be true… what are you doing here? Yes, there are sites like that on the web, and when possible, I avoid going to such sites. Why are you questioning this? Because you don’t like a particular app? People have different opinions, and just because Kellex may like something you don’t doesn’t mean he must be

          That being said, if Kellex likes an app, and like what he says and he makes a few pennies on referring me to that app… so what? He was the one that referred me, and I see nothing wrong with that.

          If he recommends apps that I don’t like, well then I would look for another source of information… one that jibes with what I believe a good app is. And so will most people. So he may have some influence, but if he burns that recommending bad apps just to get a payday, sooner or later this will wind up a ghost town with nobody to refer.

          So really, in the end, the comment by dellbx is more on the mark than you give it credit for. Who cares? If he is monetizing good advice, good for him. If he is monetizing bad advice, it will cost him in the long run. It all balances out eventually.

    • Steve

      I don’t mean to be “that guy”, but when I open this in my phone, I only see folders and scripts and nothing to install. What might I be doing wrong?

      • http://twitter.com/bogdkad Bogdkad

        You open what? Apk or fileserve.com? I think you should download apk from your PC.
