    One of the reasons why I still prefer taking a nano out instead of a touch sometimes is because you can use a nano without taking it out of the pocket.

    I know some of you will tell me you can do the same with the touch by pressing the home button twice and then memorizing where the volume and song controls are but its rather difficult because it is so high up. Is there a program where this is made easier?

    I think a great program would be where you can use mouse gestures even when the ipod is off to signal a volume increase, decrease, song skip, play pause or something. For example, 2 fingers on the screen, one stationery, and one moving up and down would adjust volume.

    Two taps single pause and play, etc.

    Not a bad idea. I do miss being able to change song / volume etc easily without having to look at the ipod.

    yeah like having a accelerometer to move , ie when you shake your ipod sideways the song changes , but when you shake your ipod up or down it turns the volume up or down.

    i want this app, do a finger gesture to start the app, once started, tap for play/pause, the slide back/forth for song change and circle for volume, would make touch history, lol maybe with the new SDK?

    good idea, though when your ipod is sleeping, the screen won't register any gestures, so you'd have to wake it up and unlock first. but that's pretty easy to do without looking.

    i agree though, the ipod touch isn't the best for listening to music because of the lack of easy navigation...that's why i still use other ipod for music. my ipod touch is only for video & internet.

    maybe if we get enough posts in here, a developer will pick up on the hint and develop something like this. Seriously, even something that moves the volume controls closer to the bottom of the iPod will help!

    This can be done. Turn off your AutoLock, then:
    Create an app that reads swipes in four directions. Swipe right for next, Left for previous, Up for fast forward, down for rewind, and double tap to play/pause.

    I'd personally prefer tactile buttons. This would be nice, but if you're reaching into your pocket anyways, you might as well take the thing out of your pocket.
