Nyko iTop Button Relocator | iLounge



I can't help but just dig the concept. To me it's one part having the buttons on the top and half not wearing out the headphone jack on the ipod itself. Couldn't nyko have squeezed in an RF along with it though?

Does anyone know when/if any RF remotes will come out or already have come out? I'm interested smile

Better than Apple's for some purposes: no cable annoyance!

I wanted one when I first saw it... then I realized that my iPod's clickwheel works great THROUGH its case AND my pocket at once. So I just use the controls from the outside.

Something like this would actually make the Apple case that came with my 3g usefull.

I agree with AC. I'll definitely watch for this when the apple store has them as I use that case more now then any other one I own. Because it doesn't scratch anything! wooot.

I like this better than the remote as well. I don't need/want the extra cable, but I'd like some control over the iPod when it's clipped to my belt.

Is this shipping soon? I'm anxious to pick one up.

Would be cool if they came out with a mini version...

...Although, I probably wouldn't use it if they did, as I already have on of Apple's Remotes...

As mentioned above, you can control most functions though your shirt pocket. I was adjusting the volume though my shirt the other day, and I realised how goofy I looked, rubbing a circle over my left nipple!

YuleLogger - The wheel works fine through jeans as well, EVEN in a RadTech sleeve. But doing so looks even worse!

I actually like it. I'm tired of plugging in and out my remote cable to remove it from my Timbuktu sleeve to change the play list. And then finding out I can't control the iPod with the remote until I plug it in with the hold button set to on.

People don't talk much about the iPod's controls. I think the design (both 3G & 4G) is quite lacking. The scroll wheel is nice for cycling through many tracks. But the location of the other buttons, and the rather poor design of the remote (needs some tactile way to distinguish the buttons and/or need to be more easily manipulated).

What I need is a way to move to the next playlist or artist (or go back one playlist) so that I don't have to pull it out of the #$%#$% sleeve - and do the plug/unplug.

I had mine in the left butt pocket of my jeans yesterday and I really hope nobody saw me adjusting my volume.

Richard- A better place to post stuff your selling is in the forums under the classified section. Comments in sections such as these are supposed to be about the products.

yeah I want one.

i dont think this should be given a lower grade because it doesnt replicate as well a functionality of something its not trying to replicate, that is, this isnt a worse accessory because it doesnt have a cord, its not trying to be an inline remote. thats like downgrading an ipod cassette-to-stereo accessory because its bad a doing what the griffin itrip does: just because they serve the same general function doesnt mean a difference in form or method makes one worse than the other.

its reasonable to, for example, give one silicone case a lower grade than another if it protects less well, even if the less good one does it in a different way, because theyre suppoed to do exactly the same thing. these products dont. i wouldnt use an inline remote, but i definitely might use this.

Posted by IronMaiden434321 on March 24, 2005 at 6:18 PM (PDT)

Have you already gotten this thing then? I like the sound of it cause I keep my iPod in the holder that apple sells, and this would be perfect for the functions I need.
