    Hi kawarik,


    I found some information on how to create playlists on iPod nano (6th generation) here:


    iPod nano User Guide


    The information starts on page 25:

    Creating and editing playlists

    Create a playlist:

    1 On the Home screen, tap Music, and then tap Playlists.

    2 Flick down, and then tap Add.

    3 Tap a category (Songs, Albums, Podcasts, and so on), and then tap the items you want to add.

    Don’t tap Done until you’ve added everything you want to include in the playlist.

    4 Swipe left to continue adding content.

    You can add content from any category. For example, you can mix podcasts with songs in a

    single playlist.

    5 When you finish, tap Done.

    The new playlist is named New Playlist 1 (or New Playlist 2, and so on). The next time you sync, you can change the title in iTunes. When you sync again, the playlist title on iPod nano is updated.

    Since I am quoting this article out of context, I also located the section on multitouch gestures (page 11) to help with step 2 above:


    Flick your finger quickly up or down to scroll rapidly. You can wait for scrolling to stop,

    or touch anywhere on the screen to stop it immediately. Touching the screen won’t choose

    or activate anything.

    In some lists, such as Playlists, you can flick down to show editing controls at the top.
