    Hi, new to apple products here. Purchased the 4th gen ipod touch and I'm concerned about protecting the front and back. Would buying a zagg invisibleshield full body (front and back) and also pairing it with a hard candy street skin case work? Or do you think the zagg shield on the back would slip out when I try installing it into the case? Any feedback or advice is appreciated. Thanks

    Hey there, welcome to the world of Apple. What you're suggesting is a very common practice. I did it myself.

    But I think that spending more than $5 on an invisible shield is a waste of money so I got the Stealth Guard for free (just pay $2.85 for shipping) and then spend around $25 for a case you like. Or, if you are patient enough, you can get a $.99 case from China. It takes between 8-15 business days to arrive.

    I recommend soft flexible cases if you're concerned about dropping it. When it falls, a hard case won't help much, it will actually give you more trouble picking it up because the case will fly 5 feet away from the device.

    The Stealth Guard looks much better in the front than in the back of my ipT4. And I chose not to use the solution when applying it. Now, in the back I applied the solution and so far I'm not enjoying it.

    First of all, you should probably get a BSE, or StealthGuard instead of a IS. Same thing, except you have to make your own solution. And no sgueegee. But it's worth it. I would recommend something from Switcheasy for your case, however, they have only came out with one thing.

    You'll be lucky to get the case on over the invisableshield on the back. I know I couldn't with my Incase Slider on my 3G.. Had to peel it off. Save your money and just put one on the front.

    Not sure how much, if at all, the back is scuffed up, nor do I much care since it will always be in a case.

    Or you could get a front IS and then save, and then get a case with a rubber lining to prevent scratches.
