I'm such an idiot...
Well, actually, I'm not entirely to blame on this one...
I just figured out that Apple has buried an "Audiobook playlist" checkbox under the Music tab in the iPhone's settings / preferences.
I didn't have this "playlist" checked.
So even though the individual audiobooks themselves were checked, because the main playlist itself was not, nothing was copying across.
So I'm the fool for not noticing the box wasn't checked — but can you blame me when Apple decides to hide the "Audiobooks" section under the "Music" tab instead of in its own dedicated tab, like they do with "Video", "Podcasts", etc.
Why does "Podcasts" get its own section, but "Audiobooks" doesn't?
How is an audiobook any more like "music" than a podcast is?
Now where's that rolls-eyes emoticon...?
Each person thinks different but I do see your point. As a developer myself, I may of gone the route of making, CONTACTS, CALENDAR, APPS, and MEDIA tabs with music, video, audiobooks, podcasts all considered media. Then a section for each on under the Media Tab.
Think they are just living with the fact that they started as one thing and have grown and new pieces have been added and maybe they didn't want to confuse older users. But anyhow...
