    Well, I consider this a bug. If you are in a playlist on the iPhone and flip it into Coverflow mode, it doesn't just show you the album art for that playlist. It shows you the album art for your entire iTunes library. This is different from the behavior in iTunes on a Mac or PC.

    Has this been fixed in 3.0?

    It's not a bug. Cover Flow on the iPhone isn't to show what list you were viewing in Cover Flow. Cover Flow on the iPhone is just to show you all the albums you have on your phone in cover flow. Think of it as a different way of viewing the "Albums" part of the iPod.

    I'd like if there was at least the option to make it playlist specific. :)

    Yea but this behavior is inconsistent with how iTunes does it. I don't think it makes sense for Coverflow to only be an alternate album view. Then it shouldn't be accessible from just tilting the device from anywhere. It really seems like they just overlooked this.

    The one thing that really annoys me with coverflow is that it's not available for videos. For some reason, I get really wound up by the fact that videos only play in landscape but you can only view them in portrait: It seems most Un-Apple like
