    Default IPOD Feature

    I use my iphone at the gym to play music while pumping iron. I HATE having to keep using the slider to unlock the screen before I can advance a song. Not to mention that the armband case has a cover which also makes this tough.

    Is there a way (or a 3rd party app) were I can disable the slider? Basically making the iphone an ipod.

    You don't have to. Just double tap the home button to bring up your iPod controls. No unlocking necessary. Or if you use the Apple headphones (stock, or in-ear) or any other supporting headphones, double click the mic to skip a song, triple click to go back to previous song.

    The best way (as llofte said) is to just double click the home button and the iPod controls will pop up under the time on the lock screen.
