    Anyone know of any apps that allow u to edit/create playlists?

    Zune lets u create a playlist based on your "now playing" but u can't remove songs or add songs to playlists. Would be great to see an app pull all your music info to be able to create playlists.

    I don't know how to remove songs, but I figured out how to add songs. start playing the playlist, add songs to now playing, click on the song now playing, click below the album art, create playlist, name it as the same name, choose replace existing playlist.

    Granted, it is overly complicated, but it is possible.

    I am with you all on the lack of playlist editing - seriously annoying. I cannot imagine how Microsoft dropped the ball on this. I am happy to say there is a way to edit your playlists though but it isn't intuitive. Here are the basic steps.

    - Install Windows Phone app on your desktop
    - Connect phone
    - Open Windows Explorer window
    - Find your phone in the media list under Computer
    - Double-click Phone folder
    - The Explorer window will not show 'Search Phone' in the Search box in the upper right
    - Replace 'Search Phone' with the word 'playlist'
    - You should see a hidden folder named Playlist - Open that folder
    - All of your playlists should show up as PLA File - Double click the one you want to edit
    - The properties box will open.
    - To add music, drag files *from your phone* to the playlist window.
    - To remove files click the red X. Use the arrows to rearrange music.
    - Click Ok and it will update your playlist on the phone
    - Write to Microsoft suggestions list and tell them they really need to fix this.


    Hope this helps,

    -Bill
