    Boy they sure are a nightmare to apply! I got super lucky once with my iPad 2 and did get one on fairly well but it causes blood pressure spikes that would make trans fats jealous. Ugh. This time, I'm not bothering though. I've seen lots of iPads that never had one installed and with normal usage the screens look new.

    The last few times I installed a screen protector I did it in the bathroom after steaming it up by letting the hot water run. It was kind of uncomfortable, but it helped a lot!

    Screen protectors are a must for any smartphone, tablet, etc! ZAGG, Stealth Lite, Rhino and 3M screen protectors are awesome. If you can't get your hands on one, get a GEARMAXX screen protector. They sell on ebay for cheap and are as durable!

    This.

    Is the Air screen actually plastic or just perhaps thinner glass? It's definitely different than previous versions.
    The screen is different (in terms of thickness and things behind it) so when you tap on it it sounds different. However, how it "sounds" is not a way to determine what the screen is made of or if it will scratch or break. I have had my original mini for a year now and there is not a single scratch on it. It doesn't need a protector any more than any other iPad.

    I just couldnt stand the feel/texture of the one I had on my original iPad or the iPad 2. I didn't put one on my iPad 3 and it never got scratched. I don't plan on putting one on mine or my wifes iPad Air either. I do have a case on order for mine and one already on my wifes.

    I ordered the Bodyguardz Pure screen protector. It's made of glass and looks just like the screen to me. It doesn't seem to show finger prints as much as the actual screen does. I purchased one for my iPhone 5s and I love it. It's a little pricey but worth it for me. I noticed a couple of very small faint scratches on the screen of my iPhone 5s a couple of weeks after I got it. I wanted to cover it before it got scratched up any more. I wasn't "careless" but probably not "extremely careful" either.

    I ordered a Fintie SmartShell Case for Apple iPad Air. Can I get some screen protector recommendations that'll work with it, something easy to put on and minimal bubbles.

    I wouldn't bother. A case is more than enough.

    With supervision, it should be fine.
