    I used to have a Sony Ericsson where you could change song by holding the plus volume for previous and minus for next song.

    Is there anything like that for the iTouch?
    At the moment there is a lot of rain and snow where I live (Sweden) so it's a pain getting my iPod wet when I'm trying to change song -___-


    Written on an iTouch. I apologize for any typos, lol.

    I remember seeing one app that could to that, but I don't quite remember. The only way I can remember is using Activator in Cydia.

    Yeah, in Cydia it's called 'Glovepod'. I used it before, pretty good.

    I use VolumeButtonExtender from Cydia. I love it. You can even pause/play by hitting both volume buttons at the same time.

    Hm, I just read a small description of VolumeButtonExtender, it seems very interesting. I used to use GlovePod when I was jailbroken and the only thing I didn't like about it was that you needed to bring up the lockscreen music controls first, then you can use the volume buttons to change songs. And for VolumeButtonExtender, it seems that you just need to hold it for a few seconds, which is basically the same concept that Sony uses on their phones.

    @Psyko, get VolumeButtonExtender ^

    @ChrisL, it is very nice. It works great at work also. I don't even need to take my iPod out of my pocket and get it all dirty. ^_^

    in activator, you can set one action to volume up-then-down and one to volume down-then-up. you could make one next and the other previous, i guess.

    I was about to install glovepod, but after reading you have to use the music controller on the lockscreen it contradicts its own purpose.

    VolumeButtonExtended is just what I was looking for
