PowerAmp is a music player for Android that provides a powerful alternative to the music app that comes with most Android phones and tablets. It can play a wide range of audio formats, has a 10 band graphic equalizer, supports gapless playback, and a number of other features.


Now the developer has added a few new features including lock screen controls for devices running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This lets you pause or resume audio playback or skip tracks without unlocking your device.

PowerAmp 2.0 also includes notification controls for devices running ANdorid 3.0 and up, support for multichannel FLAC audio files, and support for HTC Beats/SRS audio.

There are also a number of bug fixes and translation for Japanese, Polish, Korean, and Chinese.

You can download a free trial version of PowerAmp from the Android Market. A full license costs $4.99.
