    anyone know a fix for this?? I have many podcasts and song names that are long, on my iPod it will scroll automatically to show the full name of the song/file. Is this something that the iPhone just does not do?

    Thanks for your help.

    you should be able to tap and hold a song and see the whole name... or something.

    whyyy is such a simple issue still unresolved apple? v___v
    going into landscape mode helps, but if the title is still too long you just seem to be out of luck...

    I just bought an iPod Touch 4g and found out all the podcast and video titles were being cut off. What the hell at this still not being addressed?

    Hi Tony, I am also annoyed by this problem, but finally came across a solution: http://appshopper.com/music/flicktunes
    which I found at http://getsatisfaction.com/spotify/topics/long_song_titles_not_visible_on_iphone_client
    This is an inexpensive ($0.99) app called flicktunes (I have no association with the developer). It give a large scrolling display that shows the full text of song titles that I can see from across the room when it's docked in my stereo. Enjoy!

    regards, Ted

    Titles in Now Playing scroll now, but they're still cut off in the music and video browser.

    Not helpful when I have this:
    This Show Has a Long Name - Episode 1
    This Show Has a Long Name - Episode 2
    This Show Has a Long Name - Episode 3

    And it displays like this:
    This Show Has a Lon...
    This Show Has a Lon...
    This Show Has a Lon...

    Edit: I found out you can tap and hold to get the full title.
