    This is probably a dumb question, but is there any app that would allow me to control the music app on my iPad (original)? I would like to be able to do things like pause, skip, play, etc. with voice commands.

    Thanks!

    Hi Bruce - I don't have a specific answer for you; voice recognition apps exist but mainly for taking notes - not sure if any integrate w/ the native Music app?

    Concerning your 'original' iPad, I'm assuming you mean the iPad 1? Also, is the device 'jailbroken' - might help others respond more specifically - :)

    Hi Bruce--I want to share with you the Voice Over Tutorial that our Super Moderator, Gabriel1, created. This may allow you to speak your commands of stop, pause etc-with what you are looking for. It will only run with ios 5.0 or greater-so check your version on your ipad.

    See the link: http://www.ipadforums.net/help-ipad...2320-how-guide-using-voiceover-ios-5-1-a.html

    Hope that helps you.

    After some more digging, I found an app called Vokul. It seems to do what I want and works pretty well. I haven't tested everything it can do, but I have been able to tell it to play by artist and by song title, pause, go to next song, etc.

    I'm using a non-jailbroken iPad 1 running iOS 5.1. I've had this iPad for 2 years now, housing it in the basic Apple case. I have no screen protector (bought one, hated it). There are no visible scratches anywhere. :eek:

    I will take a look at the Voice Over guide.

    Thanks!
