    So i recently got iTunes match a few weeks ago,Love the service and everything about it except i have two issues...
    1. Sometimes the artwork for certain album won't show on my iPhone, and i know i have the artwork. :mad:

    2. Whenever i have the "Show all music" toggle turned on my iPod app on my iPhone seems a bit slow and sometimes unresponsive,Especially if I'm downloading a song/album. :(

    An tips or help would be appreciated :)

    The album art issue is a known bug. You can try turning off Match and turning it on again to see if it helps. Strangely enough, some of mine on my phone will randomly get album art even if I hadn't turned the service off. My guess is the art is pulled from Apple's servers which may have issues from time to time.

    Once Match has been enabled on your iPod, you need to open 'Music' and let it sit from 10 minutes to an hour depending on the size of your iTunes library. After your library has been cached, it should work much better.

    For artwork issues, I found re-inserting the artwork into the album then re-running iTunes Match fixed most of them. For stubborn files, I had to find alternative versions of the same artwork.

    Also, there will be some lag in the iPod app if you have lots of albums.
