I create my playlists on my computer and then pull up the playlists on my phone through the app. So I have a running playlist that I use for all of my runs now and can add new songs to it really easily through the app. I also hand my phone to the kids when we are in the car and let them search for songs because my phone is plugged into my car speakers. We use it a lot on road trips. I don't actually use the computer version of it much at all.
