Do you have to use the touch pad every single time you want to save?

I don't understand why I can't just hit X or Start or something and have it save my game. Do I have to manually reach over and select the save file everytime? In games where you save a lot, it makes it a billion times more irritating because the continue button is super small and in the very center of the screen, which is uncomfortable to reach for any way you look at it.

Please tell me there's a way around having to use the touch screen to save a file on the Vita.

Seconded. I've only played a few games, but none of them required the touchpad to save.

I figured it out. You have to select an option under settings that says "Allow buttons to be used for Vita menus".

It made me use the ****ing touch pad everytime I wanted to select a save or save something. Thank god I don't have to deal with it anymore.
