  1. It still doesn't show all the songs I have on the phone.
    Why does it have to be complicated? Why can't it show them all? So how do I add those other songs that aren't shown?

    1. Hi Deric Smith,
      Thanks for coming.
      Can you please tell me what do you mean with "doesn't show all the songs"? Is it the playlist or the song on your music player? If what you means is some of music files doesn't show in the music player app, then try to check whether there are .nomedia file in the folder where the music file that's not displayed is saved. If so, remove the .nomedia file, then wait for a second and the music file will be displayed in the music app.
      Hope this helps :)

  2. Why did you guys get rid of the handy add songs from another playlist function that was the Galaxy S. I have the Galaxy SIII now and it doesn't have that feature anymore. I don't feel like scouring through my entire library multiple times when what I want is part of another playlist :S.

    1. Hi Korisx,
      Thanks for coming.
      In the stock Music player app, you can add songs from the default playlists(favourite, most played, recently played and recently added) to your own playlist. But, I couldn't find the same option when I tried add songs between my own playlists.
      However, if you don't mind using third-party music player app, try installing doubleTwist Music Player app from the Play Store. This app will allow you to add songs between non-default playlists.

  3. How do you do this on a s2
