Smart Playlists for Audiobooks on iOS

    Hi All,
    I thought I was being clever recently, but I've hit bit of a snag. I've been borrowing audiobooks form the library and ripping them to iTunes, so that I can listen to them on my phone. In an effort to keep track of how much of each book I have listened to, I made a smart playlist of each book and added the parameter of zero plays. That way, each time my play count goes to 1, the track will disappear. This isn't perfect of course, because play counts take a day or two to sync with iTunes Match, but I figured it was a decent solution.
    My issue is that when I pull up the playlist on iOS, the tracks are out of order. On the desktop version of iTunes they appear in order as you would expect. Is there a setting that I'm missing to keep them in order on iOS?

    I have used this technique for years. All my smart playlists show up in order, but the problem is (I think) that iTunes Match is messing them up. I've heard about this issue from a lot of people regarding playlists synced via Match.
