    I have iOs 5 and I'm have problems with the music app also.  When I add music thru my iTunes into my iPhone it doesn't list the albums correctly.  The genres are all messed up and the album names. Even if I change the tag info thru my iTunes the problem is still not corrected. It's not sorted right...please help!

    I use all smart playlists as well.  I got my new 4s on Friday and set it up.  At first it worked ok, then started to slow and eventually become uneusable.  After a few hours the entire music app would crash when I tried to load it. I couldn't use it at all.  I called Apple Tech Support yesterday and they instructed me to reset the phone to factory settings and start it as a new phone.  All my songs etc were still there, and the music ap worked much quicker.  I've had to do that every day I've had the phone, which is just insane.  Over the course of the day, the app becomes less and less functional until it crashed everytime I try to load it.  The only reason I ordered teh 32 gb instead of the 16 was to add more music, and it just is an awful product.  I'll try the 'limit to' workaround, but I actually use that field to control the size of the playlist.  Maybe I'll split my smart lists up into multiple single lists, instead of one big one with multiple fields. 

     

    This is absurd.

    You are so right, The Consumator, it is absurd. Ios5 was clearly not well tested before release.

    Is there any one particular song or playlist that causes the problem?  It could be a corrupted file.  Might be worth doing a little dectective work...eliminating various albums, songs, etc. that seem to be an issue.

     

    Also, do you happen to have any cover artwork that's larger than 500 x 500 pixels?  I've read on a number of threads that this can cause the Music App trouble like you're experiencing.

     

    Agreed...very frustrating condisdering the iPod App worked fine.  I expect Apple will update it, but until then...

    Hey All

    I've been having these problems for a week or so now, and after reading all the comments here and noting that my girlfriend's and housemate's music apps worked fine, I suspected it had to be the smart playlists (as they have none). So I resynced my iPhone 4 and iPad 2 with the entire music library but none of the smart playlists and voila - the music app on both devices now worked fine.

    So that explains the problem but still leaves us in a totally unacceptable position - Apple how long do we have to wait for a fix to this massive bug in ios5!?!?

    Cheers

    Evan

    Did you happen to try deleting and re-syncing all music prior to that?  Just curious if that would have done it or if it is indeed Smart Playlists causing the trouble.  After deleting and resyncing all of my music things were fine and I'm using some Smart Playlists, so just curious. 

     

    Glad things are working though...congrats!  Hopefully Apple will address this soon!

    Thanks for the reply.  I'm sure I have some artwork larger than 500x500pixels.  I just use google images to paste album artwork for the albums that iTunes can't find. 

     

    I basically have a jazz playlist, a playlist for songs I haven't rated yet, and then one giant playlist of 4 and 5 star songs, sorted by least recently played.  I've been using this same set of playlists for six years, ever since my iPod Mini.  I've never had any problems with them until now.  Very perplexing. 

     

    I'll do a little digging, maybe take the smart playlists off for a few days, and see if that fixes the issue, after my next reset, of course.

    I deleted and re-synced and the same problem happened again.  Definitely not a re-syncing issue.  I thought it might be related to wireless syncing.  I noticed the app COMPLETELY fell apart yesterday as I pulled out of the driveway.  I keep my phone plugged in in the car, and I saw that it started trying to wirelessly sync as I opened the garage door to pull out.

    Hey Richsadams

     

    Yeah I did remove the entire library first and resync it as described elsewhere here but that appeared to make no difference and the app kept crashing on startup.

    Got it.  Well, glad that it's working now.  What a dissapointment the Music App has been.  Hope they get it ironed out sooner than later!

    Like I wrote before: The problem isn't the smart playlist in general, it's the option "Limit to 'xxx' tracks/MB/GB/etc. selected by 'most often played/etc. Without this all my smart playlists work fine.
