[quote] Can you shuffle all of the playlists and tracks within on the Ipod Touch? I made lots of playlists by artist name, with hundreds of tracks in all of them. In spotify itself you can click on "library" under "collection" to shuffle all of it, but there is no "collection" or "library" buttons on the Ipod app. It seems you can only shuffle within a particular playlist and not all of them on the Ipod. Is that true or am I missing something? [/quote]
I wholeheartedly concur. I am an album guy so I am alway creating offline available playlists for individual albums. But sometimes it's good to put all music in play randomly. Doesn't seem to be supported on the mobile version currently.
I would love to have the option to hide offline lists when I am offline.
I use folders for all it's worth, and I have so many playlists and while my playlists are awesomely organized, it would help so much to be able to not see the playlists I have chosen to keep offline from my phone. Basically, I wish the offline lists would load only when I was online with my app and clicked Offline playlists.
This would keep it all neat and clean. Folders in the app would also be awesome.
Having only just replaced my iPod (80GB classic) with my phone (Galaxy S), I was hoping to receive similar functionality via Spotify. However, I find offline listening to be incredibly clumsy! I find that having one playlist full of music I wish to sync just does not work. In the mean-time, I have resorted to creating one playlist per album. This still isn't great, but is a marked improvement.
I think that there's a better solution to this problem.
I propose that browsing your offline files becomes a little more succinct, and similar to the functionality of other music players on the market. The simple ability to browse your offline artists/albums/genres would improve the usability of this app to a huge extent.
