    My apologies if this has been posted, or is already common knowledge. I just noticed the other day a cool little feature on the iPod touch. If you go to your "Now Playing" screen while music is playing, I found that you can swipe from left to right with one finger on the album art and it will serve as a "back" gesture, instead of having to touch the small back button. :)

    i noticed this also. i tried swiping the other direction thinking maybe it would be a shortcut to the next song. but alas nothing happened.

    yet another one

    when you are listening to your music in the now playing screen, if you pinch out then pinch in quickly, it flips the art to show the songs in the album (without having to touch the button on the top right corner) and if you do the gesture again looking at the list of songs, it will flip back to the art...any more hidden gestures we're finding?

    You can double tap for this AFAIK.
