    I was sitting here thinking about this -- what finger does everyone use to scroll with on his or her iPod touch? I find the index fingers sticks to much, so I went to the middle finger and boom, easy scroll. I knew it had another purpose.:D

    Same. I find it works very well. Otherwise I'll use my index or middle finger.

    it depends on why i need to touch the screen and how touch is positioned. usually i end up using my thumbs though.

    Don't know why, but I feel my thumb and fore finger stick slightly.

    With out thinking about it i would say my index finger, but now i realise, i do use my middle finger allot for scrolling and even for basic navigating. It is just easier

    I use both my thumb and my index finger. It just depends on how I'm holding the iPod.

    When I have used one I used thumb in landscape orientation and index in portrait mode, sometimes I would scroll with the back of my finger (finger nail) so it slides effortlessly.

    I usually use my middle finger or my thumb. It just depends on the position of the ipod in my hand.

    Thumb/index on my right hand, unless I'm playing a game that requires the attention of both hands... ;-)

    Portrait:
    - Navigating around: left hand, thumb & right middle/index finger to scroll
    - Typing: Both hands to hold, thumbs to type. I am a kid with miniscule thumbs, so this works fine.
    - Games, etc: Both hands holding, thumbs to tap OR Left hand holding right hand tapping.
    - Pinching: Left-hand to hold, index & middle finger.

    Landscape:
    - Navigating around: Both hands to hold, thumb(s) to scroll
    - Typing: Both hands to hold, thumbs to type. I am a kid with miniscule thumbs, so this works fine.
    - Games, etc: Both hands holding, thumbs to tap.

    I find this works best for the way I use my Touch. I use it all the time, mainly for the web, more often than my computer, and I'm on the computer like all the time!

    portrait, hold with left hand, scroll/zoom with right index finger and middle, thumbs for typing.

    Landscape (which is always prefered for me.) I use thumbs for everything.

    I had a feeling this might go down a few paths.

    BTW, I use my thumb whenever I use only one hand. If it's two, then I use my index finger.
