    Hey there, so to give some background on what it is that led me to this app idea, I wanted to explain the situation that led me to the idea.
    I ski every available weekend, and while doing so, I listen to music on my Droid. My problem is that when I'm listening to music sometimes ill come across a song I don't want to listen to. Now, before I go any further because I know the response will be "make a playlist!", I don't always want to listen to all of my favorite songs all the time it can vary with mood, activity, ie speed run or park. So that's why this would be a simple addition.
    Anyway, its a real bother when I'm skiing or just get off the chair to hear a song I don't want to listen to right then, to then have to: take off my glove, unzip my jacket, open my pocket on the inside, take out my droid, press the button then unlock it, go to music if I'm not there already, and click next, then put it all back. Its just an issue of convenience.
    So, my simple (at least I believe so, I don't pretend to be an expert) proposal is to simply have an app that ITS ONLY PURPOSE is to designate the camera button or maybe the volume rocker being held (dunno if that's possible) to simply change the song to the next song. No back, no repeat, no pause, just forward. That way I can adjust my song as easily as I can change the volume which I do with just my thumb pressing through the coat.

    Yup, so long story short, external button to move the song playing forward.
    Oh, also, I have tried those apps with the music controls on the front lock screen, but those still require I do most of the steps I have to do normally heh.
    Let me know what you think, weird and very specific purpose but applicable and honestly, worth a buck or two to me anyway :).

    Did you ever find a solution to this?

    That would be a possibility but we could do better. How about using the motion sensor such that you could do gestures in the air. Like make a circle in the air to skip a song.

    Yes actually I did. :)
    Search Music Control and it did EXACTLY what I wanted and more. Another is shuffledroid. Haven't played with that one as much but Music Control is amazing xP.
