Frequently Asked Questions

This section answers the frequently asked qestions.

Please have a look here before you send me a mail.

Question: Why do I still see advertisements? I paid for the full version.

Answer:
When you buy the full version, the free version is not uninstalled automatically. Most likely you still start the free version. Please uninstall the free version or update the app icon on the home screen.

Question: What's the difference between the free version and the full version?

Answer:
The full version doesn't show ads and it comes with homescreen widgets. Besides that, there is no difference.

Question: The app doesn't seem to show the folder structure.

Answer:
By default, the player shows a 'flat' list of all found audio folders. If you want to see the folder structure, you need to switch from to the 'Explorer' view mode in the preferences. Please see section 'User interface'. If you do this, please consider activating the option 'Use custom folders' and configuring your audio folders manually. This is much more comfortable when using the Explorer view mode.

Question: How do I repeat a song?

Answer:
Once you play a track, long-press on it in the list. There should be a popup menu where you can select 'Repeat'. Another possibility is to use the 'Quick Actions' menu. You can reach that with a long tap on the Play/Pause button. There you find some additional useful shortcuts.

Question: How can I download new songs?

Answer:
That's not possible with this app. This player only plays what is already on your device. Downloading commercial music from the internet is illegal in most countries.

Question: Does this app play WMA files?

Answer:
In general, WMA is supported by the player, but it depends on your device which formats are working because the player does not have internal decoders. The audio decoding is completely done by the Android firmware. Some manufacturers don't support the WMA format because the licenses are very expensive. For the same reason I can't add support for WMA if it is not already supported by the firmware of your device. The license costs would ruin me.

Question: Can you please add skipping tracks with volume buttons?

Answer:
I would love to implement this. Unfortunately Android does not forward volume button events when the screen is locked. There is no clean way to implement this.

Question: Can you please add feature XYZ?

Answer:
Most likely I could. Currently I develop this player in my spare time. The list of features I want to implement is already very long. Therefore I need to prioritize. If you want to see a feature which was already requested by many users, I will most likely implement it. If your feature request is very specific, the change that I will ever have enough resources to implement this is relatively low.

By the way, I will not implement a feature just because you gave a one star rating at Google Play. For me this feels like blackmail. The chances are much higher is you send me a mail.

Question: Can you explain the permissions of the player?

Answer:
Fortunately the Android operating system doesn't allow Apps access to all data and functions of your device. For some features the app needs permissions you grant by installing the app.
I understand that some permissions are not clear if you don't know all features of the player. The following list shows each permission and for what feature each permission is required.

Storage: This is necessary for renaming and deleting audio files. Also the playback progress is saved within each folder.

Network communication: The free version is supported by advertisements which need to be fetched from a server. The full version which does not sow advertisements does not request this permission. Phone calls: This permission is required in order to pause playback during calls. Of course the player does not read who you are calling or who is calling you.

System tools: The player can be configured to keep the backlight on. This permission is required to access the backlight.

Bluetooth: The player needs to be able to detect that a Bluetooth headset (or any other A2DP device) connected in order to switch to the car/sports mode if that's configured by the user.

Unfortunately Google missed to provide some of the permissions in a more fine grained way. For example the player can theoretically read incoming or outgoing call numbers because it is the same permission which allows to detect that a call starts.
Of course the player is not interested in any phone number. The full version requires this permission as well, but since it does not have internet access permission, it would not have the possibility to send this data anywhere. I assure you that the player does not collect any personal data. If you need further information, please contact me via email. I will answer all your questions as good as I can.

Question: I already have the full version, but I would like to support you with a donation. How can I donate?

Answer:
Some people asked me about a paypal address for donations. Of course donations are welcome if you want to support the development of the player.
Please keep in mind that this is not meant to be an alternative payment method if you can't buy the full version from Google Play!
That's because I don't have possibility to provide updates and update notifications in a comfortable way. In other words, please first buy the full version onb Google Play. If you think the price is too low, fell free to donate an additional amount of your choice.
Donations should be independent from feature requests. I can't guarantee that I will implement specific features even if it comes with a donation.
