    hi all,

    searched for this but didn't find anything specific to my question.

    do you recall how on the older ipod classics/nano, etc, you could i think it was double-click the center button to add whatever you were currently listening to to the on the go playlist?

    is there no way to quickly add what's now playing to on the go on the iphone? searching for the song you're currently playing just to add it seems ... like much more work than it should take.

    thank you

    wow that was weird, when i clicked on ipod to help you, it just crashed lol. anyway ipod > playlists > On-The-Go > add the songs that you want, then click done.

    maybe if you jailbreak it there might be some sort of tweak that can allow this to happen. but i doubt you want to lose your wonderful warranty that fixes anything just so that you can go a few finger taps less. its pretty easy to do this, while in the middle of a song you want to add, tap the back arrow at the top left corner, then at the bottom by the left corner tap playlists, then tap on the go, and scroll to the song you want to add. its really not that difficult.

    again, thanks for your input, but you gotta admit, the double click was so elegant and sensible. it was a "no look" input. ideal for when you're walking around city streets etc.

    stil love the iphone, just puzzled why they'd take that functionality out ... i would've thought that without the center button they'd just make the trigger a different button but still one accessible without requiring you to look at the iphone and fairly instantaneous.

    I hope that the next big iPhone software update will bring more iPod playlist settings. Like being able to build & name playlists on the iPhone/itouch itself instead of having to use iTunes. Making smart playlists on the go would be great as well.

    Any rumors about future software updates including this?

    You'll only lose your warranty if you're fool enough to bring your jailbroken phone in to Apple without restoring it. There is no way for Apple to know your phone was jailbroken unless you do.
