    The simple gadget does what it claims to do. The design is minimal, and the plastic sleeve offers
    added protection. My only complain is minor: you have to remove the shuffle from the sleeve in order to change settings.

    I do not like reviewers who immediately give one star for personal reasons or out of spite. It does not help us, the buyers, when your review is based off nothing more than personal animus. I have subtracted two stars because it lasted only four months - one is for durability and the other is for making me ship it back to them, with shipping expenses coming out of my pocket.

    One caveat is in order, however. I use(d) the tapstick four-to-five times a week for running, with my average run being about nine miles. I have poured on copious amounts of perspiration and it kept ticking until a few days ago. The middle button continued to work intermittently, while the two volume rockers, which also double to change tracks, stopped working. Nevertheless, the shuffle, more than any other ipod or mp3 player, is geared towards gym rats, long-distance runners, and the like. It should be able to withstand more than a modicum of moisture, something which cannot be said of the included earphones. And any device designed to be paired with the shuffle should as well.

    I must digress. As many have already noted, the earphones die, in my case, within minutes of contact with any moisture. It is surreal how many people have had the exact same experience as me with the earphones. I didn t even give them a real test until the tapstick began to malfunction, but they were done with after just a few minutes. I still scratch my head when I consider the truly paradoxical nature of Apple s line of products, for as good as some of them are, like the shuffle, their earphones are equally as bad. Still waiting for Apple to make a decent, not great, but decent set of headphones.

    Back to the tapstick. It is cerainly the best device out there to pair with your shuffle. As it is now virtually unusable, I have sent it to Scosche. You bear the burden of shipping costs, but they will apparently provide you with a new one if you ship it to them with your receipt/invoice. I just sent it and am waiting to see how long they take. If I get a new tapstick, I will bump up the rating to four stars. If they can do it within a reasonable amount of time, I might even give them all five. Stay tuned, I am withholding my two cents until I see what there customer service is made of. But, unfortunately, there aren t many other ways to go if you have the shuffle. Tapstick or earphones. We ll see.

    The Schsche tapSTICK is an extremely poor product. First of all none of the external package or on-line descriptions make it clear that you cannot turn the iPod Shuffle on or off with the device. Also, none of the external packaging or on-line descriptions make it clear that you can not access the Shuffle on/off switch once the tapStick is connected to the Shuffle.

    Secondly, it is extremly difficult to remove the Shuffle from the tapStick as there is nothing to grasp or hold onto except the thin edge of the Shuffle clip. I have dropped the Shuffle several times because of the force it takes to remove it from the tapStick.

    Thirdly, the product instructions do not make it clear that it takes one tap of the middle button for the Shuffle to play once it is deployed. Since that is different from the integrated control of the Shuffle this should be made clear especially since the Shuffle has to be turned on before the tapStick can be deployed. Normally the Shuffle plays as soon as it is switched on (either to normal play or shuffle).

    Lastly, the plastic body of the tapStick seems very cheap and I expect it to break fairly shortly. I ve only had it two days and am not looking for it too last much longer. Save the aggravation and purchase an in-line plug in adapter.
