    I think the only fault of this app is that you can pause songs too easily. The obvious solution: implement an option for double-tap pausing.

    Do you agree?

    it depends on what speed the dbl tapp need since if it lets you wait 10secs for a second tapp then its useless

    i agree, i am trying to turn up my volume and it registers it as a pause!!!
    nice one for pointing this out +1
    but remember Skylar is bringing out a massive update soon so me might have something too do with this in setting or could have fixed it

    i completely disagree.

    It also makes it a little harder to do when its in your pocket.
    i wear jeans with big pockets and i still would not want to double press.

    I think a better solution would be a two finger tap to pause. Instead of a doubletap you tap once but with two fingers...just sayin'

    Pausing / Unpausing is the most often used operation and should therefore have the simplest gesture. Double-tap for pause is stupid. I have never had PocketTouch pause 'on its own' in my pocket.

    Try it yourself. Take your pod out and open PocketTouch while music is playing. Now place your palm on the touch and press down as if you wanted to pause. Nothing will happen.

    I don't know what you want to accomplish with this thread.
    of course, there are agroup of users that have requested this feature. as Skylar stated may times over, he is not adding this in, but may be doing a PT API thatwe may subclass and modify to our own liking.

    IMOy, PocketTouch is sort of a misnomer. I don't think it's best use is in your pocket at all. It is excellent for controlling while sitting in a dock.

    polls are silly

    Even to those who personally don't want it -- and you guys are the minority, lol -- why would you still not want it as an option? That's all I was suggesting: he should allow you to choose whether you want single or double tap pausing.
