    I used to use a screen protector on my iphone but there were always bubbles around the edges and I could never seem to get them completely out.

    I'm worried about my iPad screen but done want to look at even bigger bubbles on that.

    Anybody know of a good solution?

    Thanks,
    Ellen

    Go to your local mall they should have a stand set up with a place that sells them an installs them.

    Here where I live out of the 4 malls near by 3 of them have a stand set up for either the ghost armor or invisableshield protectors.

    They cover the front , back and sides and install it for you to make sure you don't get any bubbles. If you ever do get bubbles or if it peals or anything they will replace it.

    screen protectors will really be very important on iPad. It helps avoid scratches on our screens.

    i like mine for more than one reason.

    #1 i know its pretty much scratch proof now.
    #2 I like how it makes the metal back look shiny
    #3 it adds better grip to the back of the ipad so it doesnt slip out of your hand as easy.

    Get yourself an InvisibleShield. They are very easy to apply without bubbles.
    I do sell them in Germany.

    I have the apple case, it has a flap that covers the screen when not in use.

    There's another reason to cover the iPad screen. It has a coating that could, over time, wear off. If/when that happens it will no longer be touch-sensitive. A screen cover is really a necessity.

    Lol, where do you get such misinformation? The oliophobic coating could eventually wear out, but that doesn't have anything to do with the touch, instead how well fingerprints wipe away. Frankly after I saw the scratch tests going around the popular websites (rusty nails!) I think maybe the need for screen protection is overrated. Conversely, I think some kind of case is essential. I also want to use a Pogo stylus for little art projects and don't want to put another layer between the marginal stylus performance and the touch screen.

    I had the same concern. I had a hard time getting a screen protector on my Touch, so I was really worried how I could possibly put one on my iPad successfully. I bought the "Power Support" brand online--expensive, but it got good reviews. I watched the videos on their site about how to apply it, and then took the plunge.

    At first I had a few bubbles (well, a lot actually...) but I used tape to lift the screen protector up and got the bubbles out. It took a while, but my patience paid off, and it looks really nice now. I feel very relieved that it's on, since I don't have to constantly be checking the screen to see if I accidentally scratched it. It's was $30, including shipping, but I am glad I went with that brand.

    Good luck! :)

    I installed the ZAGG on my iPad. There were quite a few bubbles present when I did the install. But the directions claimed that all the bubbles would disappear after a couple of days because of the properties of the material. That's exactly what happened. After two days, there were absolutely no bubbles. So, you can install the ZAGG and not worry about trying to squeeze out the bubbles. They go away.

    I second this. It is all true.
    I posted the same sort of thing Here, along with a pic showing all the bubbles I had, which indeed disappeared after a couple days.

    i use avery self -laminating sheets. I cut it out to the shape . its sticky so you can apply it piece by piece and smooth out the bubbles as you lay it down and its cheap!!! i did this on my itouch and its been a year and it still works great and no scratches..it doesnt leave residue when you take it off either....

    HTH's!!
