    Basically... my fingers for some weird reason don't slide across the surface of the iPod's screen very well... I have to use force when they should just glide across. I want to know if I'm the only one that has a little trouble sliding my fingers across the screen. Its not like they squeak when I move them but it gets hard when playing games like MazeFinger because my finger gets pulled down from my fingernail

    Do you mean it's just kind of sticky or whatever from moisture ?

    if the screen is too dirty or too clean it will have more friction i have found... some oil from fingerprints on the screen and a clean hand work the best.

    Clean your screen, wait til your hands are dry, but not sweaty humid etc.

    If none of the above work, you have a dodgy finger; get it a replaced with your free warranty

    this is a very odd situation. I've never had problems, but I guess it is possible.

    you probably just have dry skin but if you put cream on wait until it soaks in good before using the touch having cream on the screen will cause a lot of problems
