    Search for genre > tap on genre in search results > Shuffle all songs

    Yes it's a workaround but it's possible at least.

    The whole direction for the music app is offputting for anything beyond casually just listening to whatever.

    I feel worse for the iPod touch users though... that's supposed to be a highlight of the device. :rolleyes:

    Denon Audio app seems to be working really well for me. I like the classic layout, dark theme, and play next/add to queue options. Built-in TuneIn radio to boot.

    It's almost fraud. They show me an intuitive and practical user interface, let me pay 400€ for it, and then they take it away with a software "update" without any way to install the older software.
    Now I have a device that could store up to 64GB of music, but the more I put on it the more I have to scroll through bloated lists.

    It's frustrating.. but the next best thing to do is just make a Smart Playlist that catches your Genre and shuffle that. At least it auto updates with songs.

    It's a bit off-topic in this thread, but my frustration actually comes from the moronic artist view. I usually listen to albums, not playlists, and the new artist view is beyond stupid.
