I would like to queue up songs on my iPhone like I can on my desktop music player. Is this possible with iTunes, or is there an alternative music app that will let me do this?

You can create an on the go playlist directly on the iPhone that acts like a queue. Alternatively you could create a playlist in iTunes then import that to the iPhone by dragging the list to the phone icon. Any missing tracks would be imported.

The problem is that I want to queue up songs on the fly. I will check out on the go playlists however – Casebash Jul 22 '10 at 13:06
@Casebash: This is the only way to do it. – Adam Robinson Jul 22 '10 at 13:42
This actually works pretty well. Songs added are added to the end and you can easily clear it – Casebash Jul 24 '10 at 2:29
