I posted this and only noticed that is wasn't Poweramp just after I had hit the submit button, couldn't see how to retract it. It is a cheek of them to have it rip off Poweramp, my apologies to all.
looks nothing like poweramp
behaves nothing like poweramp
sounds nothing like poweramp
clearly says that its not poweramp
has the word power in the name so?
has an icon similar to poweramps which could easily be a coincidence seeing how its just a circle with a play icon inside it, any idiot can come up with a simple design like that, especially when you have an icon generator built into the IDE that includes the play icon and the circle background. Google are also pushing circle icons so....

how exactly is this a poweramp rip off? go look for a deal on an eye and/or ear test if you think it is.

I may not have worded myself as well as I could but it surely looks to me like it is trying to ride on the back of the success of Poweramp, much like the straight to DVD films that are made up ride on the expected success of big Hollywood films giving them a similar name and DVD case. digitalspy.com/mov…ke/
Going by the name of the article I just posted I was "your gran" as at a glance I mistook this app for Poweramp when looking at it on Google play as the name is similar and it has the same icon.

I would also hazard a guess that the majority of people who have given this heat have never heard of Poweraudio but think they've voted for Poweramp

Your digitalspy link is brilliant - Metal Man and the Little Panda Fighter especially.

This app has 4.1 stars on play store with over 500,000 downloads, though, so not a bad start.

i dont see it myself yeah the icons definitely similar but the players nowt like poweramp the icon design is incredibly simple though if you look past the play icon for a minute its literally just a plain black circle with a stroke outline so that the black background doesnt blend in to a dark/black(Amoled) wallpaper and make it look like the icons nothing but a play button. As this is a music *play*er app using a play button in the icon makes a lot of sense the icon itself is clean and simple and if your not creative or dont have Photoshop skills its a pretty decent looking professional icon.

Im not saying the dev definitely used the icon generator though but ive used it myself many times over the years and it does look that way and seeing as how the player is clearly not following material design its easy to see the icon set used is holo which compared to the material icon set is very limited. Anyways it doesnt deserve to be called a rip off because of a few similarities and people reading the name wrong, i voted hot its a very basic player but it does do the job and for free its worth a go.

na neutron is, its pretty ugly though
Uninstalled after 5 mins.
Nah, nearly got me
Poweramp just got a fresh coat of paint. Worth checking out.
Hi-res support is great too.
Thanks for this
Pulsar is the best music app on the Play Store IMO.
Cold. No Android TV support.
Phonograph is great and free
Tried to use the equalizer, had virtualisation on and then disabled it and the sound was all crackley. Repeating did the same thing. Avoid this app!!!
can any player play YouTube while screen is off?

Youtube premium feature
But i got an app called NewPipe it can do that for free
Its not on playstore obviously but is on f-droid
Been using Winamp for years without a problem... just downloaded Foobar2000 to try it but it sounds pretty similar to Winamp.

Winamp is 16.98MB but Foobar2000 is 36.23MB so inclined to uninstall it.

Are most of these players much of a muchness and just down to personal preference?

Sound wise, I don't really hear any difference.
I like Poweramp because I'm used to it. Hi-res support is something the other don't support (not that I know of).

Just noticed it had changed when I used earlier, I'm now scratching my head because I'd only just got used to the previous version!
Cheeky use of the same logo as poweramp.

No heat button available so I was saved from heating this!

Ah - will do. Theyve been in Beta for years from what I read and the forums are awash with people just begging for it to be released. I gave up following it about 8 months ago.

It's pretty much done now. Worth a try. Very different interface
