    What's the Secret to Putting on Screen Protectors?

    Hello, I bought some plastic screen protectors on eBay for like 99 cents each I bought 4 and ruined them all, I couldn't put them on without getting air bubbles and it looked like my iPad had herpes..

    I tried everything, wiping them real good, applying eyeglass cleaner first, using a micro fiber cloth to clean it, but each time after I installed I had so many air bubbles!

    Help..

    #1 Patience
    #2 Installation spray
    #3 Squeegee or credit card
    #4 Time to let the bubbles dry out

    Check out the installation videos for Zagg Invisibleshield either on their website or on YouTube.

    Save yourself money and don't get the 99c ones. Get a good quality one like InvisibleShield, Ghost Armor, BodyGuardz, etc.

    Is it even worth it whatsoever? I don't think the iPad will be very scratch prone.

    I think it's worth it, especially since there's an 18 month old son in my house who tries to play air hockey, scrolls between home screens and watches movies on it.

    Not claws, but sometimes he has wet/dirty/crumb-y fingers. He's good about using only the pads of his fingers to touch the screen.

    There's also the occasional uncovered sneeze that he subjects the iPad to.

    The screen saver is just a piece of mind for me. I paid $500 for this, so why not throw another $25 for it? All my other Touches and iPhone have it. The iPad would have felt left out.

    I suppose. I have a screen cover on my Droid, but it gets throw into my pocket, cup holder, center console, you name it, unlike my iPad which is always in a case when it leaves the house.

    And the wife and I both despise children so we don't have to worry about little kids messing with the iPad because there are never kids allowed in our house.

    Her dog doesn't give a crap about it, unless of course we were to put chapstick, bread, bubble gum, a glass nail file, and cough drops on it. For some reason she likes to chew those things.

    apply it slowly and evenly from one side to the other. Use a credit card or drivers license to put it on smoothly but make sure not to press down to hard.

    The more expensive InvisiShield or Ghost Armor screen protectors are better because they are applied with a spray so you can position it and work out an bubbles before it dries. They really are much more protective too. I used to get the regular stick on screen protectors, they served their purpose by protecting the screen but I would constantly have to remove them and apply a new one because the cheap plastic protectors do scratch.

    LOL. Her dog is obviously into self-care with the chapstick, nail file and cough drops. Get her to chew toothbrushes, and the dog won't have doggie breath anymore.

    I was told it was well worth the money to have the guys at the local electronic (think BB) put it on.
