    tap and hold on a song in the music catalog, a menu will come up let you "add song to playlist"

    remember to save playlist in the "now playing", else it won't be saved.

    You can tap-and-hold a song in your collection and choose "add to now playing." Repeat this process for other songs you want in your playlist. Then, from the now playing screen (the main music player screen), pull up the menu at the bottom and choose "save playlist." I don't have my phone in front of me, so if you don't see the "save playlist" option there, then just tap the playlist area under the album art on the now playing screen, and the menu option will be on that screen.

    Make sense?

    Not sure whether that's the right way, but first play the playlist, then click a song and "Add to Now Playing", then save the Now Playing to a playlist. You can use the same name, which would replace the old one, thus adding a new song.

    You don't need to play the playlist first before doing the adding. You could just play a song and click add to playlist...the problem is you have to type in the playlist name...they don't have the existing playlist listed so you can just select it.

    Yes, one typo and you got another playlist. Very convoluted process for no apparent reasons.
