    After a bad experience applying a Screen Protector I'm debating whether to leaving it bald? It lives in a neoprene pouch. What are you guys doing?

    Mine is naked at the moment.

    I have tried Bodyguardz, but found it very grabby and had the same with a freebie that came with one of my cases.

    People say it's hard to scratch the screen, but I am a bit paranoid about, but also screen protectors help cut down on fingerprint marks.

    Still not made up my mind yet........

    Iphone = protector, goes outside all the time, ipad2 i'm staying free of the protector. It's a risk but just try and keep it covered and don't lay it down without the cover over it.

    my iPad 1 lives in the apple neoprene case, have had it from new, no scratches or anything, the iPad 2 lives in a leather case, also bought from new, again, no scratches or anything other than the usual suspect.... greasy finger prints :)

    neither have screen protectors, too much hassle putting them on and getting it perfect

    I have screen protection on my ipad, phone and touch, at the begening particularly 1st time i had bubbles issues but then i just learned to apply it without bubbles. From a safety pov i would not leave the screen naked, infact on my ipad the screen protector helps with the usage , as with the screen alone my fingers rubbed and dragged acrossed the screen

    iPad has always been in apple cover from day one and no scratches so far so yes, naked is good. I'm always aware of it. I always close the cover and put it down somewhere safe, it's from living with cats and kids I'm afraid.

    We have three iPads, three iTouch's and a single iPhone 4. All have screen protectors. Yes I had a few trial and error moments with the protectors but once you get it, it's quite easy. My daughter now has our older16gb iPad. It was my first iPad and it went about 10 days before I fully realized the need for protection.

    Sure, if very careful and very lucky, maybe no scratches. I am anal as H and within the first two weeks I had two very fine scratches on the iPad. Must of picked up just the right dust particle under my finger etc yet that was all it took. I placed a relatively cheap protector on it a year ago and forgot about it. My 11yo daughter obviously doesn't worry about it and I clean it regularly for her and the screen protector hasn't even a scratch on it yet... :)

    When I brought home the wife and I's new 32/3G's, I booted them up with the factory wrapper on then went straight to the protector instal.

    I'll admit the screen protectors can be a pain and a possible expensive trial and error process. I just purchased the crystal clears at Office Dep for approx $15 and they're bubble free, dust free and scratch free.

    JMHO folks.

    Time to take "mom" out to dinner. :)

    Cheers
