GelaSkins iPod Touch 1st Gen
Advantages: Protects the chrome finish well, Great designs, Customise your iPod!
Disadvantages: Very pricey, Difficult to apply at first
I bought one of these a while ago after a friend recommended it to me. I use it to protect my iPod Touch as I wasn't a huge fan of the rubber cases and other methods of protection - I feel they rid the iPod of it's smart design. This Gelaskin is good at protecting the iPod and is very compact - it literally sticks to the back. It only protects the back against scratches however, so if you were to drop it, I wouldn't say it's much more protected than it would have been!
You can browse hundreds of designs on the Gelaskin website. They make designs for all kinds of gadgets including portable consles, laptops and phones and iPods. Some of the designs are great - I personally bought the Red Metal one, which you can view on their site. They all cost $14.95 for the iPod Touch 1G, which is quite expensive but these are really unique and customise your iPod Touch nicely!
They come in small packets and I had to peel the Gelaskin off it's background. You then have to be very careful and accurate applying it to your iPod Touch. They were designed to be taken off again and even re-used, but it's a pain when you start sticking it down and un-sticking it countless times!
It simply fits onto the back of the iPod Touch to protect the chrome finish from being scratched. It is designed in the ideal shape to cover as much as possible, without restricting use. It also gives your iPod a lovely look from behind, so when you're using it, people can actually see this.
It was quite expensive but I think it was well-worth buying. Everyone always looks at my iPod and wonders what is on the back of it! You can get loads of different designs and they really customise your iPod and make it yours. You can also download a matching background for your iPod to the design you choose so it all matches! I never did this but it's a good idea. I'd recommend getting one of these as they look great and will leave your iPod nice and shiny on the back forever!
Thanks for reading!
Summary: A great little invention to customise and protect your iPod
