Play count on iPhone?

Is there any way to see the play count of songs on an iOS device running iOS5 now that one of the new features is not needing to own a computer if you want an iOS device

I would love this feature also. I love the play counts on iTunes but I've found that it's totally inaccurate because most of the music I listen to is on my iPhone so if they could aggregate the counts from all of my devices, it would be a far better representation of my listening habits.

I know you guys want to see the play counts on your devices (as I would) but I have a question. When you play a song on your iPhone and you sync it with iTunes does it update the play counts? If not that'd explain a lot for me lol. My iPod Classic does so I just assumed it did on the iPhone as well.

I am sure that play count syncs between my iPhone and MacBook Air. Maybe it was a feature I turned on in preferences I can't remember

There's an app called music stats in the app store that does it.

Lightbulb Transfer play counts from iPhone to computer

To anyone who can't get their play count to transfer from their iPhone to iTunes,

You can open iTunes, go to preferences, click on the "sharing" tab and theres a box you can check that says "home sharing computers and devices update play counts" and it'll transfer your play count from your iPhone to your computer if you have home sharing on.
