    Is it possible to use my volume up and down buttons to skip forward or backward in songs for my ipod?

    Also could I set my home button to double click to play ipod or even use the lock button to play?

    Look into GlovePod for the volume buttons.

    As for playing music when double-clicking the home button, use Activator and set that control.

    Just use Activator, it's free. No need to pay for anything.

    I set it to turn music on by sliding the bottom left corner of the screen, and I change tracks with the volume buttons.

    edit: I wondered what GlovePod was for. I'll give it a try.
