    When purchasing music from the play store, I know it is located in a secure area on the phone but can get music to show ok in my preferred music apps other than the basic google one (e.g poweramp)

    However the purchased tracks show with no tags and random file names (e.g 4283.mp3) so are a total pain to use correctly.

    Other than going through every track individually and modifying the tags is there a way to quickly change this info ?

    Obviously when playing the music in the play music app all the file info is present, so the information exists somewhere.

    Anyone know of any workarounds ? Its so off putting ive stopped buying music that way.

    well like itunes its probably located in a folder only the google play music can find. and there probably DRM protected so use a pc to crack the drm leaving it as .mp3 and there you go . you bought it it should not matter if you wanna crack it and use poweramp. google . this website has lots of helpful tools www.[B]any-video-converter[/B].com

    You can download purchased music on your PC - up two twice per track using the web player, or an unlimited number of times with the Music Manager app. You can then transfer those DRM-free files to your preferred music player (and they'll even be named and tagged appropriately).
