It was brought to my attention by many of my piers that my U2 ipod is getting sort of scratched up and it is beginning to frighten me how bad it is looking with just owning it for almost a month now. So i was looking into getting myself an Ipod case for it and someone recomended i get an Iskinz...but i was wondering since i cannot tell in pictures.

Is there a screen cover?

If someone can tell me the answer to this or recomend a good ipod case i would be very grateful. Thank you to all who reply.

yes, the ipod skins do have screen protectors.

i got the transparent ipod skin, so it is protected but i can still see the signatures and stuff on the back. although i love how awesome it looks without the skin, mine was also getting too scratched up.

I got the leather case from my local Apple store, which was pretty pricey at $40, but it looks nice and does the job. The skin is cheaper.

I was wondering though...Can you still use the click wheel and stuff with the skin on? Or do you have to remove it to use the iPod? I'm pretty clueless about these things...

I got the black iSkin at the same time as my iPod, because I heard it was prone to scratching. It's great and does have a screen cover. The click wheel is not covered however, but I really don't want it covered.

The only thing I would tell you is if you get one, remove the plastic disc that holds the clip. I read on iPodlounge that the heat from the iPod will make that melt on, and the last thing I wanted to do was permanently mess up the back.

There's actually been a U2 iPod case made:

I've been given a beautiful HTDAAB styled case, myself. Has saved my precious iPod from many a scratch. The click wheel seems to scratch easily, I regret removing the plastic thingy from it.

Black Apple iPod showcase

I highly recommend the Apple iPod Showcase because it completely covers it front and back, and has a thick/hard plastic face on both sides that lets you see the engraved U2 autographs. It does cover the screen, and only exposes the click-wheel (which I left the plastic on mine because I am a dork). Also, it comes in black, so it doesn't look like you have a big silly case covering up your iPod. (There is even a sticker on the packaging that says "U2 iPod compatible" with a little picture of the iPod. My friends and I all have these and are quite happy with them.
*The only caution I have is that you have to take the iPod out of the case to use the iTrip because the hole at the top isn't big enough for it to plug into while you have it in the case. I use a tape deck adapter myself so I don't have to worry about it, but just a word of caution if you use the iTrip! Hope this helps!
