You may recall Artem's preview post last week, where he showed off the latest in slick Android music players. Well, no longer are you at the mercy of filesharing site download limits, as PowerAMP build 204 is now available in the rather more dependable Android Marketplace. Cough.

With a change log of such length that it would put a cellular network press release to shame, it's fair to say that this latest version of PowerAMP is packing a few new features. Below we've highlighted a few that may be of particular interest:

  • Genre support
  • scrobbling via Simple or Scrobble Droid
  • Album art fetcher
  • Pause on headset disconnect
  • New widgets with album art display
  • Hide status bar
  • Long hold or double press headset button to skip track
  • Lock screen orientation
  • Lockscreen widget transparency and positioning
  • Many, many bug fixes

Check out the full list at PowerAMP's new homepage.


The Market version is still free, but comes with an expiration period. The author promises a paid full version to be available shortly for $4.99 - well worth it, in our opinion.
