    Hey there :D
    So, going straight to the point, I'm kinda afraid of playing Angry Birds and cleaning the screen - with that "special tissue" which name I don't know; the same used to clean glasses - because both activities require some extra pressure (Angry Birds because you have to scroll left/right for a few seconds and sometimes you get so frustated that your finger becomes unconsciously heavier :eek: / Cleaning the screen [protector] because sometimes there are this deep fingerprints that don't go away if you do it softly) and everyone says that iPads can't take that much pressure blah blah blah, but on the other hand some people also say that it's very ressistant and it's silly to believe that finger pression can break it blah blah blah.

    Anyways I'm kinda confused and I wanted people that actually have experience with this device to "unconfuse" me. Thanks in advance :)

    Ummm.......

    You may clean your screen AND play Angry Birds afterwards.

    The great and powerful Oz has spoken.

    Good luck on your quest to rid cyberspace of those thieving green pigs!

    Clean your screen with a micro fiber cloth but stay away from most cleaners. Don't worry about playing angry birds unless you plan on playing with a hammer. Your iPad should last for years with decent care. iPads are actually quite robust. Don't treat it any different then you would any other electronic device.

    I don't think you need to worry that much. I must have dropped my iPhone a dozen times onto our tile floor from my pocket and no problems so far.

    I would not say that you cannot damage it with finger pressure but it's unlikely unless you are the hulk.

    I've had no problems so far with this cleaner and I've used it to clean phones and MP3s screens. My question is if the pressure applied to clean the screen (of course it can't be compared with an hammer, but for applifying results let's consider it's a pretty strong one) can somehow damage it.

    So, if I'm getting you straight, there's an "unlikely" possibility that I actually am the Hulk?!
    Dude can I give you my ex number so that you can say that to her?

    Yes and yes, if you end up damaging your iPad with just normal finger pressure I will indeed verify that you have the strength of the hulk to your ex.

    If you've ever seen kids play with them it's unlikely you can do better.

    I wouldn't worry about harming the device with finger pressure unless as someone said you are the Hulk.

    Relax, enjoy, kill green thieving pigs!

    Problem is that when you are cleaning the screen [protector] (and also on Angry Birds when they are the ones making you angry) you are using more than normal finger pressure and that's what I'm concerned about.
    And kids on youtube seem to know how to treat this peace of beauty :p

    Are you afraid of breaking a window when you clean it? The screen has gorilla glass on it, you're not going to break it with your fingers.

    Rukass-

    As what the other members have said-you will not break the glass while cleaning the screen-unless you pound the screen with your fists.

    This thread seems to have gone as far as it could to help you. I am going to close this thread now. Thanks for your understanding.
