PowerAmp for Android has been a mainstay music application in the Google Play Store since it’s launched. With a very powerful feature-set in its beta alone the app was destined for greatness. The updates since then have kept on rolling and they won’t stop today.
A new version of PowerAmp is available in the Play Store and it adds a lot of nice changes. For starters, those running on Android 4.1 will now see rich notifications for controlling music playback straight from the notification pane.
Music apps are one of the main categories that we knew would benefit from rich notifications so it’s no surprise it was added as quickly as it was.
Other changes include improved .wav and .wma support, audio in .flv support, deeper levels of music folder navigation (up to 10 folders now), and more improvements and bug fixes.
While this app doesn’t have support for things like cloud storage or other bells and whistles it still remains one of, if not the best app to have from a pure music listening standpoint. You can find it in the Google Play Store.
