    I have my cd player and receiver covered with rubylith tape and also covered with a piece of light tight cloth. Can't figure out how to use my Dynaco 70 tube amp in there though. I could use the heat in the winter too.
    Dad, is the lens cap suppose to be on?.

    I use a sheet of 027 Medium Red lighting filter from Lee Filters over a laptop screen - I've not seen an Ipod screen, but if it's any brighter than a laptop, try a couple of pieces.

    Go in the iPod settings and set the backlight timer to 2 seconds. When messing with it, just point it away from the other people.

    Worth mentioning that the iPod Touch will run the Massive Development Chart as an app.

    I use it now and it's great..

    That red saran wrap idea is genius if it works. Simple and cheap.

    I tried to find a darkroom-safe timer app for the iPhone but didn't. I did find an app that let you make sort of a safelight flashlight out of your phone (just makes the screen red or whatever color you want), but that doesn't help.

    Why don't you make a pouch for it from black felt and a Velcro strip?
    You can leave it in it when you need to be in dark.

    I think a little patch of rubylith, perhaps in multiple layers, would probably do the trick. Cheap as dirt, sticks, and is designed for the purpose.

    Incidentally, I did some tests with the iPhone and the flashlight app I mentioned (called Flashlight actually). I tested red and an orange hue I came up with myself.

    Results: Both colors are approximately as light safe as the sun at high noon.

    As suggested, get rubylith at an art supply store, that is exactly what I did with my ipod (and an old tv too, retired now due to DTV conversion) one layer is enough, very easy to read and works well outside the darkroom too. I remember an old process darkroom (just lith film) that had a window covered with rubylith film, that window was the safelight most of the time. Kind of neat.
