Songs in the playlists on my phone are ordered by what order they were added to the playlist?

It's driving me crazy, and I can't find any songs. The only way I can fix it is by deleting every song from the playlist and then dragging the songs back in from my music folder. It's a pain. Shouldn't it organize itself on the mobile app?

Spotify fills local playlist with their files instead

Hi, I have a local playlist and for some reason Spotify won't sync it. Instead, spotify syncs its own files, and the version with no curses at that. Has any one else had this problem?
