It'd be great to get a Shuffle/Auto-fill option in cases when the library (or selected playlists) is bigger than the capacity of the phone.

i.e. If my library is 30GB and my phone only has a capacity of 2GB, I can select the shuffle option, which will randomly pull songs from my library or the playlists I've selected and move them over to my phone.

The currently supported method of doing this would be to create a smart playlist that contains random tracks up to the desired number of MB/GBs.

I agree an "integrated" solution would be very nice to have, and I'd like to actually do better than random, but I have to do some more thinking before I jump on it.

I think it comes down to how you organize your music. I know some people really like to build playlists, while others search or browse for music. Also, some people like random, others want to have full albums. There's a lot to think about.

One idea: I think iTunes 8 may have made playlists a bit more interesting to you (it did the trick for me). The Genius playlist feature makes it really easy (and kind of fun) to make playlists that could be selected for syncing in Salling Media Sync.

Summing it up: thanks for the feedback; it's something I'm looking into.

Cheers.
