PowerAMP 2.0 Beta Released; The Best Music App For Android Just Got Better!

If you are an Android handset owner, chances are you must have heard or installed PowerAMP on your phone. PowerAMP is THE best music player available for Android phones out there, and features everything one can ask for. Right from an Equalizer to Sleep Timer to Lyrics support to FLAC playback.

The only department where PowerAMP lacks to other music players is its looks. The whole UI of the app while nice looks a bit un-polished to me. The developer of PowerAMP, Max, promised quite a few months ago that he is working on a completely new and major version of the app. However, something happened and there was no news about Max or his much-awaited PowerAMP 2.0 update.

Well, last week Max came back into action and has quietly released a beta build of PowerAMP 2.0. I installed the beta build today, and I must say I am downright impressed with it. Max has refreshed the UI of PowerAMP, and it looks downright sexy! The UI is mainly black now, which will be greatly appreciated by all the AMOLED/Super-AMOLED phone owners.

While Max has not posted an official change-log, there are tons of changes in the new version. Apart from the new UI, there is a new lock screen widget, and improved ID3 encoding much more. There is also an noticeable improvement in audio quality.

Interested Android users can head over to official PowerAMP forums to download the APK file. Please keep in mind that the app is in beta, and so there might be some bugs/issues with it.
