    My biggest gripe is the volume control. I suggest a circular motion to turn up and down volume just like on the older ipods but with touch. Can someone program this? it wold be an instant hit with many people. Perhaps even adding the functionality so it could be done while locked so you could adjust in your pocket!

    If i learn how to code for it, this is the first thing I would do.!

    I absolutely hate the iPod Touch/iPhones volume control. It fails for me 2/3 goes. It would be better if you could change it by doing the "pinching" action you do on the web browser.

    I have no problem with it. It takes literally a second or two to pull it out of my pocket or whatever and adjust the volume...

    I wish the ipod had buttons on the side to turn the volume down/up, so it doesn't have to be taken out of the pocket, but i guess it wouldn't be a touch.

    I wonder if anyone told you about the EDIT button so you don't double post.

    I would hate this app.

    And for the record, you can NOT do anything with the screen while the iPoT is locked. They why it's locked. That way, nothing can happen to it.

    If you wanna make an app that makes it look like your iPoT is locked but can really adjust volume, go ahead.

    I'm gonna stick with the slider volume control.

    P.S. I really don't see why everyone is buying the iPoT and then complaining that it's not like the old iPods. OF COURSE IT ISN'T. WHY DID YOU BUY IT?

    it wouldn't be too hard to make it from a developers view, i mean touch here (12o'clock), touch here (3o'clock), touch here (6o'clock), etc. to make a circular motion, thus volume down, viceversa

    i much prefer the slider anyway *shrugs* cool concept but no practical, takes room on the touch screen, space (mb)s, blah, blah
