So about a month ago I started using the Nike+ GPS app and everything was working fine until a few days ago while using it, my ipod starts skipping and the voice control automatically pops up. At first I thought the app had glitches but then even after i close the app, my ipod was still skipping and that voice control thing popped up. So should I restore? Is there a problem with my phone itself? Or is the app the one that caused this issue?

Thanks in advance for your input.

Is your home button stuck? Or the button on your headphones? – jtbandes Aug 25 '11 at 19:18
Delete the app, run for a day or two and let us know the answer! – bmike Aug 25 '11 at 19:28
Hmm, you know, I think my home button is the issue now that you ask me. Because sometimes i tap it and it doesn't respond right away. – amsmd Oct 19 '11 at 18:45

I don't think it's the app that's causing the issue. And I believe there are two separate issues with separate causes.

First, the skipping issue could be caused by a corrupt iPhone music DB - this is fixable by re-syncing the iPhone with iTunes.

Second, voice control could kick in automatically if you use some kind of accessory such as headphones. Try not using this accessory for a while and see whether the voice-control issue is sorted.
