    Please help!! I have a Zagg InvisibleShield that I bought from BestBuy and had them install. I continually have issues with micro-bubbles (i think) over 50-75% of the screen. I've had to return it 3 times and each time I get similar results. I've waited 5-6 days, tried heating it (temporarily), and it has not cured. I have the 3G version. My wife has the wi-fi version and had a bad install the first time but it's perfectly clear on second install...
    Any ideas???

    Is this bubbles or that weird haze? I got rid of the invisishield cause there was a gawdawful haze on it. Got a $3 protector from eBay with no bubbles or haze lol looks like there is no protector on it :)

    When I first installed my invisibleshield,

    The bubbles were present and I used the little squeegee to push the bubbles to the edge. The only time I noticed these micro bubbles was when the iPad was off. Four days later I still had bubbles. Then about the sixth day I decided that if the bubbles were still there, I was taking my iPad to Best Buy and have them remove the shield and install another (I did it myself.) I was surprised to see that the bubbles all disappeared.

    If the bubbles don't resolve themselves beyond six days I would contact Zagg. They are very responsive and would provide you with their assistance.

    I think you might want to wait several days to let the shield fully dry out before considering it defective. It doesn't really matter if your iPad is a wifi or 3G version. I have the 3G and my buddy has a wifi, we both installed the shield and experienced the same problem.

    It's not a haze. It looks like odd shape bb size smudges all over 50+% of the shield. When you look closer they do look like micro-bubbles. It's very bothersome with light colored backgrounds & when it's off...

    Does it look like there are specks of dust underneath or are they just air?

    Any chance you could upload a photo? You might be better off getting a good dry-fix screen protector - you can always peel those off and wash them if necessary. :)
