    Quite honestly I'm surprised apple didn't think of this but how cool would it be if when you launched the iPod app the back glass panel suddenly became a touch screen. You could double tap to go forward a song, triple tap to go back a song, etc...just like the shuffle controls.

    Because you could be in other apps and switch songs without having to use multi tasking.

    this would make the using the ipod more frustrating than it needs to be.

    i can see people accidentally skipping songs easily.

    Yes, because people triple tap the back of their phone all the time.... (face palm)

    Actually when I'm listening to a song, I usually like to keep the beat on the back of my iPod.

    could be possible

    apple patented touch sensitive bezels, gesture controls with the camera, etc.

    it's actually pretty easy to accidentally double or triple tap the back of the phone.

    remember, you're not the only user of the iPhone.... (face palm)

    It would obviously have an "off" function like shake to shuffle, for the drummers in all of us.

    Great idea if you want every iPhone case manufacturer to go out of business.

    This.

    Still, it's an idea. Keep thinking different OP. Much better to read unusual ideas, good or bad, than bumper tweets.

    I know, how about when you launch the iPod app, you use the same front screen to navigate tracks, you know, the same front screen you just used to launch the app in the first place... :rolleyes:

    Just because Apple patented something, it does not mean that it is a good idea or that they will implement it. All they are doing is stopping others from using the concept.

    So when you listen to music, you stay on the music page the whole time? You're one of the only ones.....
