    Using iTunes match on my phone. I'm on a plane with no signal; how do I quickly find out what music I actually have on there without going through every song and seeing what is and isn't greyed out?

    Settings -> Music -> disable "Show all music"
    When that is disabled: "Only music that has been downloaded to this device will be shown."

    Awesome. Thanks. But that seems a bit of a pain to turn on and off when I want to see what I have. I wish there were a view !

    Agreed. Its be nice to have an icon next to songs showing if they're local or not.

    Would be nice if they had a "downloaded" or a "stored on device" type of folder/playlist

    There used to be in iOS 5 (there was a cloud download icon next to each undownloaded song) but they removed it in iOS 6. Ruined iTunes Match for me.

    I have to admit that I miss this the most...I travel a lot and love my music. I've turned to creating playlists that I know are created with songs already downloaded to my device. I default to those when on a plane or even outside of a wifi zone so I don't use data.

    It appears that now every time you listen to a song it downloads it.

    Only downloads once. Then it is stored on the device.
    I do wish they would bring back the ability to see which have been downloaded or not.
