Owning an iPod Touch 4th generation can be really fun and exciting but they can get scratched very easily. The screen is one of the easiest places on an iPod Touch 4th generation for a crack to occur and you might not even realize it. I recently purchased an iPod Touch 4th generation and have found a few tricks in order to keep the screen from getting scratched or damaged, which might cost $100 or more to replace. If you own an iPod Touch 4th generation then here is three tips for keeping it clear of scratches and cracks, based on my own personal experience.

1. One way you can keep your iPod Touch 4th generation from getting scratched up or cracked is to buy a screen protector and casing for the back. Usually the screen protector and case for the back come separately and can be purchased online at stores like Amazon for about $20. The back cover will keep the metallic backing from getting scratched up by normal everyday use and the screen protector will protect the display from drops onto the floor. Screen protectors basically are all clear but the covers for the back come in a variety of colors and textures to fit your personal needs. I have a back cover on mine that is silicone and it helps me grip the back of the iPod Touch 4th generation so I do not drop it onto the floor. My case is not hard like a lot of them because they cost more than what I was willing to spend so mine is more flexible and soft, which is not really good for resisting the cracks which might happen. The cases and screen protectors can also be purchased at your local retail store for about $20 as well.

2. If you want to keep your iPod Touch 4th generation from getting damaged due to cracks and scratches you also might consider not leaving it near a table edge or near a place it might fall. This is something I worry about constantly because I am afraid I am going to knock it off the table and it will drop to the floor and crack. I have found that if I put it back in the original case and then place the case in the middle of the table I am good to go. You do not want to leave your iPod Touch 4th generation laying around because a child, pet or adult could come along and accidently knock it over, which would probably result in the front or back getting damaged. You want to keep it in the middle of the table or nightstand at all times or at least in a spot where pets and children cannot knock it over. It also helps to keep it in either the original casing or buying a small box to place it in when you are not using it.

3. Lastly, if you are clumsy like I am then you might want to limit how much you hold it in your hands and possibly invest in a carrying case. I am really clumsy because my hands often go numb and I drop things all of the time, so I worry about dropping my iPod Touch 4th generation and cracking the screen. Since my hands are pretty horrible, I try to limit just how much I hold it in my hands and rely mostly on laying it on a table when I want to use it or laying it on the top of my computer keyboard. I do not have the designated carrying case for my iPod Touch 4th generation, but if I want to use it while outside I put it inside a fanny pack. Fanny packs are not exactly fashion gold but they can work for a number of things including holding your iPod Touch 4th generation. If you are worried about it getting banged up in the fanny pack then you can wrap it in a microfiber cloth to ensure it will not get scratched if it hits the sides of the fanny pack. I like using the fanny pack because I can just slip it on and listen to music while cleaning the house without worrying about dropping the iPod Touch 4th generation or it falling from a table when I am not around.

These are just three tips to help you keep your iPod Touch 4th generation from getting scratched or cracked. There are a number of things you can do but these three have worked for me and luckily I have managed to keep my iPod Touch 4th generation looking good as new since I bought it a few months ago.
