    I was just curious; like many other previous iPods, does the iPod touch have the option to scroll text thats too long to fit on the screen like on Cover Flow or on the song thats currently playing?

    I can understand it for not scrolling when viewing albums/songs in search/browse mode (as you'd have a ton of things on the screen scrolling), but the song that is currently playing should at least scroll. Is there an option?

    Unfortunately there is still no way to do this, even now!

    Since I think it would be a very simple feature for Apple to implement, I believe a petition would have a good chance of success if enough people sign it - so I have just created one:

    Please sign, and let people know about it!

    I agree 100%. On my old Sansa mp3 player, which is now a Rockbox game console (that's what I'd like to think of it as since the headphone jack is broken.), it would scroll long song/album/artist one at a time and I wouldn't have to wonder what the whole song was called. I would just have to wait for it to scroll and I could read it. Apple still hasn't figured it out yet? Well, for the iPod Touch that is. Shame on you, :apple:! Shame shame! :D :apple:
