I've discovered that my ipod home button is sticking, I've not dropped it or spilt anything on it, its always in a safe place in my bag or in my pocket when i'm using it but for some reason it feels like I cant press down the home button,

I've read about dabbing it with rubbing alcohol but I'm trying to avoid doing that because I dont want to break my only means of music lol

I've heard theres an app that can be used in replacement of using the home button but I cant find the website I saw earlier and I was hoping someone here might be able to point me in the right direction? or if anyone has had this problem? I'm out of warrenty and I dont want to take it to apple because to be quite honest I cant afford to get it repaired

It happens to me sometimes and I have to press the home button two or three times. It can be rather annoying. Still a great device though. I have a 4th Gen running iOS 6.

You could try running something like a paperclip GENTLY around the button in case it's gunked up.

But alcohol shouldn't do any harm.
