    For those who have the 2g or the 1g..

    how is it on the 2G

    and does it even work on the 1G?

    I want to know hoe useful this is...has it actually arranged songs that might go together in your library? I know algorithms are powerful, but I didn't think about it when it came to music.

    So far, let's just say it "worked" for me...

    But it didn't work well at all...

    Maybe I listen to a lot of different bands or they're too "indie" for iTunes or something, but half of the songs I've tried to click on for a Genius playlist end up with: "There are not enough similar songs to create a Genius playlist from this track."

    Both on my iPod AND iTunes...

    im using it on my 1g and it works really well. actually discovered songs i didnt know i had. 85% was spot on and much better than chosing by genre.

    It works great! I do not like a random playlist where NIN might come up next to The Beatles... it just doesn't jive with me. I love the genius generated playlists and it actually surprises me sometimes to the point that I say, "wow, that song really does work with this song" even when I didn't think it would.

    ETA: I have a 1g Touch.

    Works on 1G
    It's very good... Uses the same technology as the iTunes store:

    "People who bought this also bought:"

    "People who listen to this also listen to:"

    I'm on 1st gen and the genius function works perfectly. Although because i have such a huge range of genres it sometimes gets a little confused, like pairing alt. rock with metal. It's good at sorting out some good classical playlists though, which is actually important as if you're into classical you know you can't listen to a stream that doesn't fit well together.
