    So, I was in the kitchen a couple of hours ago cooking a meal and was using my iPhone as an (incredibly expensive) oven timer. When the timer went off, I had very greasy/wet hands from preparing food. Not wanting to touch my iPhone with my hands, I bent forward and used the tip of my nose to stop the timer by sliding the slider across. (It worked!) It got me wondering two things: 1. I'm soo glad nobody walked in as I was doing that, and 2. Has anyone here used anything other than their fingers to operate their iPhone in tricky situations? :D

    Try playing Flight Control with your toes, it gets rather interesting.

    Yeah, I've used my nose a few times too... It was really hard for me to get my nose line up correctly though.

    Nose works great in the winter when you are wearing gloves.
    At least to unlock the phone.
    Typing is a bit of a challenge.

    Close, I was thinking this thread is heading towards somebody using another member's prostate to move the slider and close this thread.

    I used my nose to take a photo once when i had gloves on. I also tweeted once with my nose, now that was difficult!

    I've used my toes, elbow, and tongue.

    Not kidding either. Damn...I feel bad for the person who decides to buy my iPhone on ebay when I sell it.

    :eek:

    Hmmm

    Capacitive touch screen + vibration API + app store + "mature content" rating = iFap?

    Oh right, iFap + water sensors = a lot of voided warranties.
