    Appleā€™s iPod support is lackluster to say the least. You can’t sync desired playlists but the entire collection, or select only one playlist, wich is not of much help. This is not what most users need.

    I still await the ability to take songs from my Play Queue and easily add them to a playlist. Aside from that I’m overall pretty satisfied with the program. Ok, a better integrated cd-burning ability would be a bonus…

    Can’t download Banshee neither Ubuntu’s download manager or terminal download work. It says something about dependencies and uninstallable packages.
