    So the other day I was showing off the awesomeness of the droid to my friend. and after showing him all this cool stuff(sky map, goggles, etc...), he picks up his ipod touch and clicked home twice and had access to his music without unlocking it!!!....does anyone know a shortcut like this so I dont have to unlock my phone just to hit the next button??

    I use keyguard disabler app, this bypasses the lockscreen and doesnt lock the physical buttons (camera / volume)

    Screen Mode Widget - Lets you choose between regular lock mode, no screen lock or force screen to stay on. ....watch for battery issues if you leave it in screen on mode.

    Or use flyscreen with tunewiki. It puts media controls on the lock screen.

    Except for the fact that Flyscreen really doesn't lock your phone. If you hit the Home button, it bypasses it. Not sure if that is a big deal, but that is a huge issue for me.

    iPhones have numerous apps for navigation including an app directly from Tom Tom. It is a paid app but is still possible for him to have navigation.

    How about the fact that :

    Droid is customizable
    Removable Battery
    Camera Flash
    Physical Keyboard
    Runs simultaneous apps
    Runs Widgets

    These are all things iPhone and iTouch cannot do.

    The only thing i miss from my iphoto Touch is the ease of accessing the pictures I've synced from iPhoto. I've synced them to the Droid, but accessing and viewing them is a pain in the ass. Before the flames start flying, let me stress that that's the ONLY thing I've come across where the Touch is superior. I haven't tried listening to music or watching video yet.

    I was using an iPod touch as my primary media device before I switched to android and the double tap thing is the one feature I miss from the touch.
    I'm gonna try this flyscreen thing and see if that helps.
