As you all know I usually do knex instructables but this time I am going to do a Instructable for ipod users.  I have recently found out that clear tape would just do as good as a screen protector. Lets get started!!!

Step 1: Materials

you will need a ipod touch (duh!), some clear tape ( packaging clear tape will look worse and bad quality), scissors, and a ruler ( optional).

Step 2: Putting on the Tape

Measure the tape out to about 3 1/4 inches and place about 4 strands ( dont overlap!!!) of tape vertically.

Step 3: Done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this should do the job very well for a long time so you dont have to go and buy 15 dollar screen protectors. dont forget to remove the bubbles!!! enjoy!!!
<br> I find these things pointless. You cover the screen with tape that gets scuffed and looks nasty to say &quot;but underneath this I've got a nice screen&quot; - no one can see your nice screen for the tape...<br> <br> L<br>
<p>screen protectors are much cheaper than an ipod screen. you can scratch up a screen protector, take it off and replace it and it looks nice again but without it, you can scratch up your screen and then replace the screen for $15, instead of the $0.99 that it would cost for a screen protector</p>
Very true, I just use a nice leather case that flips over with a cover and is much more effective and looks much nicer. I've even seen one iPod Touch case that has plastic over the screen and theres a gap between the screen and the cover, so the user has to push quite hard to get a response with basicly ruins the sensitivity of the iPod Touch. I also have found that they are not very discreet, you can always tell if there is a cover on the screen of a device, which I don't like, the edges peel away etc. and that doesn't look nice. Rory
<br> I've annoyed people by peeling off the old protective film they've had on screens for years. They look much nicer, but people are bitter that the screen isn't protected anymore...<br> <br> L<br>
I bought a quite expensive case ($50), which looks professional, and you can't even see a single air bubble in it. You first place the screen protector on it, which is a thin film which doesn't effect sensitivity whatsoever. As you put it on, you use a special card to press down the film, while you remove the backing of the film. You then put a super thin latex covering on the back and around the sides, covering the buttons with a thick piece of soft rubber, making them stick out. You then place a black-matte H-shaped plastic frame around the whole unit, and then finally put the glossy black shield round the back and sides. In the end, you have a professional looking, black matte with black glossy trim, perfectly fitting case, with awesome soft rubber/latex buttons. I have to say, some things you can't DIY... Some things you must buy. You don't need to get as crazy as I did, but at least by a factory made case...
<br> that's interesting - i might go looking.<br> <br> L<br>
you obviously have not tried this...it sticks to the screen and leaves an &quot;invisibleSHIELD&quot; residue.
i have!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But wouldn't you get small gaps between each peice, and also the tape may leave a residue on the screen when removed. Have you actually tried this on an iPod Touch?<br>
yes and it worked very well and there was no gaps in between
