Anthony, yeah I have their thing on my iPod Video and it has done a fantastic job of protecting it in my pocket etc. without adding any bulk.

At first I thought they were terrible as I couldn’t get the damn thing on properly but I realised that I just wasn’t using enough liquid. They don’t send you very much of their “solution” but it turns out it’s just water with a bit of soap in it so you can make your own.

My advise is to make your own and dip the shield into a plate of the solution so it’s nice and wet. You can them slide it around and push the bubbles out without it sticking at all. As soon as it is dry enough to stick, that’s where it’s staying. You can take it off without damaging the iPod at all but it stretches and ruins the shield so you only get one chance once a significant amount of it is dry and in contact with the iPod.

It feels strange to be getting a fair amount of water on an electronic device, and obviously don’t go overboard and drown the iPod, but using too little will make it really difficult to get right. I ruined my first one and then ordered another which worked great and I’d feel confident about appling more with my experience now.

Another important tip is to clean the iPod well first, and then do the application in the bathroom after running a hot shower. This fills the room with moist air which takes all the dust out of the air. Getting dust under the shield would be really, really annoying as you’ll be staring at the same spec forever.

For now, though, I’m not getting a shield for my new Classic. I’m going to wait and see how well it fares on its own.

Alright. Thanks Leo. I’m going to get a case from the Apple store today and see if I like it not. If not then I’ll look into this.

I’m thinking about protecting my new iPod with this. Still I’m wondering, does it leave any residue when removed?
