    Screen protector

    Last week I purchased a iPad 2 screenprotector on eBay. Today I found it in my mailbox. I have tried to place the protector on the screen several times, but it seems impossible to do this without creating air bubbles. Is someone familiar with this problem? How to avoid these air bubbles?

    Can anyone tell me where to get a GOOD screen protector, which doesn't have this problem when putting it on the screen?

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    Almost all screen covers of this size will initially include air bubbles, you have to remove them. The most helpful thing to do is to check on YouTube how to put on a shield.

    But if you were looking for a new one anyway, then the Zaggmate invisibleShield may be a good option. It comes with everything you need to put it on and remove air bubbles.

    Now to the bubbles, since the shield is already on, you would have to try and push them to the side, before the adhesive dries. A spatula/ruler would work.

    I install zagg on all my electronic devices and always have a few bubbles on my screen after installation. They go away after a few days.

    Just go to best buy they can install them for you instead of wasting money on a bunch of protectors.

    Listen, my adivce to u (since u r obviously new to this) is to either watch a YouTube movie for how to install a productive sheet OR go to one of those mobile and accessories booths who sell these products they usually offer to install it for u
    I strongly recommend the second option since it is really harder to do this with the big screen. Even for the pro.

    Ok, I hope there are stores in the Netherlands who can help me with it. I don't think so.

    the screen bubbles flatten out. Read the directions. Its states that bubbles are common after installation but will disappear after a few days (assuming they are small ones)

    True, but haven't you looked at the image in the first post?

    Those bubbles won't go away by itself.
