Anyhow, there are SmartPlaylist customers who use iTunes Match. To help them a bit, two features will be in v5.3:
- Songs up somewhere in the clouds, i.e. not (yet) stored on the device, will be shown in the list in grey instead of in white (see screenshot below)
- Downloading a song to the device for listening will no longer trigger the message "MPMediaLibrary Notification" (see other posts)
Please report your experience with iTunes Match and SmartPlaylist to email@example.com.
UPDATE: At the moment (v5.9) the features described above no longer work. With iOS 6 it will be possible to filter songs that are in the cloud or those which are not (stored on the device). I will add this filter as a search rule in an upcoming version of SmartPlaylist.
