Does PowerAmp play WAV files? I get voicemails from work in WAV format and it would seem that none of the players on my phone can play a friggin WAV file.

Looks like it does.

plays mp3, mp4/m4a (including alac), ogg, wma*, flac, wav, ape, wv, tta, mpc, aiff (* some wma pro files may require NEON support)

Pretty much. I've been using it for over 2 years since I had the Evo. It works flawlessly and the paid version is worth it.

Does poweramp have any kind of sync feature?
I've been using DoubleTwist for this reason... but doubletwist won't stream the metadata over bluetooth. The trial version of poweramp did but I couldn't seem to find an easy way to sync playlists with my pc. Maybe the paid version does?

I just copy/paste, from my PC to phone, using Estrong's File Explorer via wi-fi.

PowerAmp doesn't have a sync feature, but you can still sync with DoubleTwist and use PowerAmp to listen. You should be able to sync the playlists with DoubleTwist and use them on PowerAmp, but I couldn't say for sure.

Poweramp is hands down the best music player I've used on Android, since I first moved over. At first, I didn't want a paid music app because the stock music player I had on my original EVO was working perfectly fine, but as soon as I decided I wanted to use my phone as a media player and listen to music in my car, that's when the situation changed.

Because of some mentions about DoubleTwist having sync capabilities, I might look into using that, just to sync up the music files and folders I have on my microSD, specifically for my phone.

Can poweramp go back on tracks when the phone is locked and I am using headphones? I asked this same question before on a separate thread but never got an answer. The stock music player can only go forward on tracks, but not go to previous tracks when using a headphone button. Its freaking annoying having to unlocked my phone and do it manually.

Yes. There's a setting where you can have Power Amp lockscreen activated, which gives you forward, back, and play (as normal), when the player is on.

I use widgetlocker, so I don't really use the Poweramp lockscreen anymore (I just activate the notification bar functions and can control it from there). Widgetlocker allows you to access the notification bar, which the stock lockscreen does not.

Fun Fact: the stock music player on the Note 2 lets you adjust play speed. So you can hear your songs in faster or slower speeds, which is just plain fun. I think it goes as slow as half time and as fast as double time.

Long time Power Amp user and loved it but made the switch to Player Pro. They are both great Music Players.

Got distracted on your review because of the cover art. That might make me get in an accident if that came on while I was driving.

I'm bumping this thread back up just to double-check if anybody noticed that PowerAmp is now available for Multi-Window use (without root)!

Can't wait to try this, on my way home!

I think you need 4.1.2 to get multi-window at all, no?

Nope. Sprint updated their customers with multi-window, prior to 4.1.2 update that was recently pushed through. It really depends on the provider.

Fourthed, not to be confused with farted. Poweramp is awesome. Gotta b careful when scanning. It included some shall we say adult related podcast and displayed some "revealing" cover art. I sure as hell didn't mind it but made my commute on the metro somewhat uncomfortable Thank the lord I didn't accidentally disconnect my earphones from my Note 2.

BTW, I'm on 4.1.2 and loving the multiwindow support for PowerAmp. I emailed my sincere thanks to the developer.
