    Most of my music is classical, and my songs have names like "Symphony No. 4 in G major, 1 - Allegro ma non troppo". The trouble is, there doesn't seem to be any way of adjusting the font size of the names display, or of scrolling through the name (that is, scrolling right to left).

    Or is there some trick of which I'm not aware? I mean, I could go through iTunes and rename every title to something short and snappy, but that would take a fair while. I'd like to keep my long descriptive names, but have some way of reading all of each one.

    Thanks,
    -A.

    Try going into coverflow while your song is playing. Then you should be able to see most of the title at the bottom. I think apple will have an update to make the titles slide around when they run out of important things to update

    Why not try FontSwap from Cydia? You'll probably be able to find the right font to fit most, if not all of the title. It'll change the font TYPE, but not really sure about the SIZE. Maybe you can find a small font type.

    Actually, in 3.0, the song title is smaller in the lock screen than it is in Cover Flow, so you should be able to see most of it there..

    Why do you try to abbreviate or shorten the song names?
