How to create a playlist on iOS 4?

So I've been looking everywhere on the iPhone (of course, maybe not the right sections) and nowhere can I find an area to create a new playlist. Anyone have a clue where it is?

Edit: Oops, posted this in the wrong forum...

If you go into your iPod area, go to the "Playlists" section and it should have a list of all your playlists, as well as an option to "Add Playlist".

Hope this helps

I swear I must be blind, I can't see the Add Playlist option in that section.

At the top I see More and Now Playing; there's two playlists in the body that I created on iTunes and when I scroll down it shows the search bar at the top above the playlists...

Erm... That is really strange :\ There should be an "Add Playlist" option, listed in that body that's showing your playlists.

I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't be showing up

Weird... This is what I see:



I thought maybe I was just overlooking the feature so I suppose I should go ask in the Apple support forums. Thanks anyway, MasterChief3624!

That is plain bizarre.. I wonder if there's an option you have to turn on in the options or something..

Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance haha. . Good luck with it

That is... odd... try syncing to itunes again sometimes that fixes my problems. Like when I download a song but can't find it anywhere syncing seems to fix that.

And I'm sure you already did this but reboot your ipod too if syncing doesn't work. (That also fixes a lot of my problems...)

And for the record that really sucks, I love the new playlist creator as I couldn't make more than one and it could only be named "On the go". Makes it easier to make a custom playlist for gta without having to touch itunes lol.

Nah, no luck. I even downloaded a fresh copy of iOS4, restored the phone with iOS4 and nothing. Still same problem... :\
