Okay, so this is for iPhone and iPod touch users on 3.1 or higher.

As some of you may know, 3.1 removed the ability to bring up the mini iPod player with a double-tap of the home button *if music isn't already playing* (iPod touch users always had this ability), but I figured out a couple of ways around this bug in 3.1.

First: If you have the Apple headphones with a mic, just click the mic button and your music will start playing. You can now bring up the on-screen controls if you wish.

Second: If you aren't using headphones with a mic, simply lock the iPod or iPhone using the power button, then double-tap the home button and the iPod controls will come up.

There you have it. It's a workaround, yes, but it prevents having to quit out of your game if you want to start listening to music.

Cheers!

With the headphones.

Holding down activates Voice Control.
Double Tapping switches to the next song.
Triple tapping goes back a song.

Thanks for your tip! I was always mad I couldn't listen to my music while playing iMobsters lol...

EDIT: actually, when I'm in the game, all it does is re-play the intro sound... piss.

OMG are you serious? That's awesome! I was so mad that I couldn't skip songs without taking out my ipod and double clicking, etc.

I must try this now!
