    two things I find pretty annoying with apple's ipod music player...

    1. No stop button
    2. No off button


    Highly annoying, at least to me. So an app idea would be a stop button and an off button.

    I hate listening to my entire library of music and yes, I can hit the pause button to stop the music (stop would be more common sense), and then hit the home button to do other things. But then my "music" and "video" app is in process and the only way to stop them is to go into SBsettings and kill the process...

    Is there an easier way??

    While listening to a song, hold the power button. When the red slider appears, hold home.
    It'll kill the music player. This also works for any apps.

    ok I just tried this process, and worked...but would be easier if someone could make the button inside of the music player.

    Sometimes I just want to stop and move on to other things...holding down the power button and hitting the home button I almost feel like Im about to shut down my 3.1.2 iTouch...tethered.

    I downloaded an app called "Killme" thinking this would be similar in idea, but I really have no idea how to use it?? Does not seem to do what I think it should do?

    Or you could jst get SBsettings and kill the music player from there.

    this may not be related to this post, but how come apple won't put eqaulizer option within music app. I have to return to homescreen then to settings to music to equalizer and select the one then again go back to music and reselect the songs if I want to change the track. i don't usually use equalizer much to extend battery life but this sucks.
