Long video names get truncated when listed on the iPhone and in certain iTunes views, making them hard to tell apart.

Steps to Reproduce:

A perfect example is the WWDC videos.  When I’m scanning the list on my iPhone, it’s hard to tell what each video is about because the names all begin with "Session ###" and often a long word like "Introduction".  See attached screenshots.

Expected Results:

Actual Results:



Possible approaches (merely suggestions):

* use a smaller font
* wrap the video name across two lines
* allow the list to be displayed in landscape mode

I blogged about this here:
