If I am listening to all my music and I hear a song and I think it would be great to add to a certain playlist, is there anyway to do this from the iPod itself, instead of having to remember this from iTunes.

Won't it remember the amount of times you played it and you can have iTunes set up to play those songs more? – user10547 Sep 10 '09 at 3:56

You could add a song to the on-the-go playlist as it is played. This requires an (at least 4th generation) iPod with a screen, shuffles are not supported.

To add a song to the on-the-go playlist simply press the center button for some time until the blue bar flashes. Of course, the on-the-go playlist is visible in iTunes.

More information can be found here.

I always wondered what "On-the-go" did. Thanks! – Dour High Arch Sep 10 '09 at 4:11
@Uwe Honekamp - i wanted to add it to a specific playlist that i created from itunes – leora Jul 9 '11 at 11:09
@ooo maybe you should add this constraint to your question, it just says "certain playlist" instead of "specific playlist that I have previously created manually in iTunes. – Uwe Honekamp Jul 9 '11 at 19:04
@Uwe Honekamp - done – leora Jul 9 '11 at 22:55
