    Would an InvisibleShield be better than a case for the 4th Gen iPod touch? I only want the back to not get scratched (at all) and the front not to crack if I drop it.

    If it isn't, then what case would you reccomend

    I think a hard case would have higher protection.

    I use both - invisible shield for screen, contour showcase for the body - protects screen from scratches and ipod from drops.

    i had a hard case before and my ipod fell from my loft bed (not even close to 2 metres), and fell apart and my ipod was dead.

    2 metres is over 6'. Normally, phones and mp3 players are dropped from about 3'-4'.

    That said, I agree that hard cases aren't the best - they're too rigid. I think either padded silicone or leather provide better protection. I've dropped my iPod in its leather case multiple times (on hardwood, tile, concrete, whatever). The only damage it's every suffered occurred when it slipped out of the case on its way down.

    I do like otterbox, but I don't like the defender series - prefer the commuter. ANyway I've pre-ordered an invisibleshied with a coupon for $14.99 from zagg but now debating also getting a case =( hmm I really wanted to keep it as slim as possible.

    I'm probably gonna get something like a silicon case, since the iPod touch is too thin.

    I personally dislike the invisible shield. Firstly, the application proves to be fairly tough. Beyond that, it provides good protection, but it ruins the screen feel. It has a very tacky feeling. Check out Steinhell (sp?) and Clairvue screen protectors. And get a case for the back.
