    Does anyone have experience with this screen protector? The blog site for the GoodNotes handwriting app reviewed it and gave it good marks. It apparently offers a surface that has some friction---like paper. The PaperLike website claims it also reduces glare.

    No link given - for those interested, look HERE - there is a good video - however, no comments from me, i.e. seems to be made for an iPad Pro w/ an Apple Pencil which I do not own. Dave :)

    Lots of reviews on this product. If you draw or write a lot it's a must have. However its a thin film an it does reduce glare AND clarity.

    I’m a professional illustrator, who has just discovered art on the iPad. I have no issues with the surface of the glass. I don’t want anything between me and the sensitivity of the bare screen( gee, that sounded....provocative ). It may be a good idea for taking notes, or sketching, but for heavy illustration/ painting where clarity, and precision is a must ?....maybe not. L

    Just an update. After my iPad Pro original edition went belly up I bought a new iPad Pro, 3rd gen. I took the opportunity to get and apply the PaperLike screen protector.

    First story: I followed the directions on the video whose link comes with the protector. Even though I am a bit "thumb fingered," I had no problem applying it. Furthermore, my response to the protector is very positive. It cuts way down on light reflection, giving the screen a satiny appearance that I think is attractive and easy on the eyes.

    Second story: Since I liked it so much, I ordered one for my daughter's original iPad Pro as a Christmas gift. Unfortunately, I made an error on Amazon in checking out and mistakenly got the 10.9 inch version. The PaperLike rep was quite nice about it and is sending me a replacement larger sized one at no charge. I think that is going the extra distance!

    He asked me to pass the smaller sized one on to someone who could use it. Therefore, if you are interested, pm me and I will send it to the first person who responds. I only ask that you pay the postage.

    I looked them up online and for 36dollars, I feel like the tempered glass isn’t so strange a drawing surface after all! I still kind of really want one, but gee that’s expensive!

    How would a satin finished screen protector affect how fast the tip of the Apple Pencil wears down?
