Contest: Win one of two $20 gift cards or one of twenty-five free copies of Poweramp and Volume+ [Updated With Winners]

The folks over at MaxMP and Meltus contacted me for a little giveaway this holiday weekend. We’ve got two $20 gift cards to your favorite web store such as Amazon, Newegg, or something else. They also threw in 25 free copies of Poweramp and Volume+. Poweramp is a major veteran when it comes to third party music players in the Google Play Store. With features like a 10 band optimized graphical equalizer for all supported formats, separate Bass and Treble adjustment, downloading of missing album art, a tag editor, lyric support, and so much more, it’s obvious that this is the best player around. To top things off, you will also get Volume+, which is the perfect compliment to Poweramp. It boosts up your overall volume including your bass/treble and you can save/load custom EQ settings. This one also works with other apps like Google Music, Pandora, Slacker and other apps for those times when you want to take things to the cloud. Poweramp is priced at $4.99 and Volume+ is priced at $1.99. If you’re doing the math, your total prize value is $6.98.

All you have to do is head over to our forum post and tell us your favorite song right now. We will pick 2 random winners for both $20 gift cards and 25 random winners for both Poweramp and Volume+. You have until tomorrow May 27th at 11:59pm EST and we will announce the winners on Monday May 28th. Good luck!!!

Also, MaxMp is working on a major update to Poweramp, which would bring it to version 3.0. They want you guys to tell them what new features you want and/or if there are any particular bugs that you’ve noticed. You can head over to their survey page and let them know.

Click here to enter and hit the break for Google Play Store links for both apps.
