I want to get an armband case for when I'm jogging or walking the kids at the park so I found my wife's old case for her iPod Touch to see how it will hold it....I figure if it will most of the armband cases will too. Obviously not all...but most of the generic fitting ones should.
I think it works because even though it is about a .25 inches shorter and .25 inches less in width....it has the squared edges that the case secure too.
Here is the test, put it in two different ways....don't laugh that it is pink
The second way is best of course...but it's liberal in how it would go in while at the same time having no play while shaking it. Hope this helps someone....
