    Hey,
    this is my first post here so I'm not sure if this has already been asked.

    When I first saw the new Volume Buttons (up & down at the left side of the iPod Touch 2G) They remembered me of the volume keys of my Sony Ericsson K800i. They can be used to control the volume but also on holding them a few seconds to jump to the next or previous track. Would it be possible to add this feature to the iPod Touch 2G with an app? Would be really usefull, because you could jump to the next song without pulling it out of your trouser pocket.

    There's PocketTouch in Cydia that does that for you. All you do is a swipe or gesture with your ipod and it will change the song for you.

    It was made by Skylar who is a super moderator on this forum.

    Note you have to be jailbroken.

    Yeah just saw this app but it would be nice if you could just use the buttons and the screen could be turned off... Don't like the fact that the screen is active but just black.

    Edit: Do I habe to add a repo to find it?

    Edit2: Just found it... stupid typo ^^

    Actually i would like something like this too. The problem I have with PocketTouch is it uses the screen, but i have a flip case which covers the screen when in my pocket (has holes for the hold and volume buttons though), although i can kinda open the case enough to do gestures on the screen it is awkward and looks strange
