I've had my iPad for almost two weeks now and in that time I've been researching protectors for the iPad. My head is starting to spin with all that I've been looking up and more importantly I want to get the iPad protected before anymore time passes. So, I've decided enough waiting, let's get this thing ordered. But, before I do, I need some recommendations from my fellow iPad users. From all my research I've pretty much narrowed it down to four options, they are:This is what I used on my iPod Touch as well as my Blackberry. I'm happy with how it looks on the iPod Touch, it applied easily and looks great. However, I was not as happy when I put it on my Blackberry a few months ago. It was much more difficult to install and the skin is already starting to yellow, while the skin on my iPod is over a year old and has not yellowed at all. I'm not sure what the difference would be, but in my opinion the quality isn't as good as it was when I first started using their products, could just be me though.
So I'm going to pick up my iPad today after work. I have a Power Support Anti-Glare ready and waiting. Thing is, I've heard screen protector horror stories, and am not trying to flush $25 down the drain.
On the other side of the coin, I don't have a car, and would have to enlist a friend to take me down to burbank and have the protector installed. I'd inevitably have to buy them dinner or something for the effort...thus setting me back some coin as well.
So, that out of the way, is it possible for a first timer to get this installed properly without having a nervous breakdown, or should I just take it to power support? I've watched the YouTube video and it seems pretty self-explanatory--far from rocket science. But still.
Screen Protector - Item Unusable During The Install Process
May 7, 2010
Now that the iPad has been out for over a month, I'm curious as to how many users have and recommend screen protection.I'd also like to hear from those who don't have it and find it unnecessary.I read some reviews about a Zagg screen protector. Some reviewers swore by it. Others swore at it because they found it difficult to install. A couple users even ended up making the $30 item unusable during the install process.
First, please forgive me if this is a FAQ - I'm a newbie here (note post count!). Anyway, I tried to download a commercial app today, but it wouldn't load. It ended up in my iTunes library, and a popup box on the iPad recommended we sync it from there.
However, in order to do this, we had to back up first (which took ages), and then sync everything back. There doesn't seem to be any way of selecting all apps, other than one at a time, for syncing from iTunes to the iPad, but if all aren't selected I get a warning message that not all my apps will be re-synced.
What is the easiest thing to do here? I've tried syncing in both directions, I've tried selecting the new app, and it obstinately refuses to load onto the iPad. Is there any third party software which will allow the loading of just one app, without going through the maddening syncing business?
Screen Scratch Protector / Unable To Find A Better Protector
Aug 21, 2010
So I did a quick goog search and here on this forum and didn't find one thread that gets peeps substantial feedback on different screen protectors...NOT cases. I don't want extra bulk. I just want to know which you think is the best film to apply to the screen to protect from scratches. Here's what I've found: Casemate $35 Invisibleshield by Zagg $25 Stealthguards $20 BodyGuardz $20
If you are using one, please tell us: 1. How resistant is it to showing finger smudges? 2. How clear is it? 3. Does it stay put, or does it peel up at the edges? 4. After you remove it, does it leave any residue? 5. How easy is it to install? These are the five key features for a scratch protector film, I think.
Unable To Install/cannot Install ITuens On Computer?
Jun 22, 2010
They delivered this morning and I wasn't at office. Fedex left 30 min before I arrived at my office. And I was so mad. My business our is 10-6 and they came 8:30! So, I called them and ask them if I can pick it up from wherever that delivery guy is. Fedex told me they will send message and tell them re-attempt if they can.
Otherwise I had two options. One, pick up from their center Two, wait till tomorrow. But after I hung up, after 20 min, this Fedex guy showed up!He said he was going to come by one more time and told me that he knew this is THE Ipad!. I was so excited!

Suggestions for a cheap screen protector? I was thinking of picking one up on ebay.. i dont need anything too pricey like a wrapsol or invishield. I already have the smart cover and a sleeve just want to make sure i dont get scratches.
is there any difference between the screen protectors availalble? Some cost few � others �20+. I sold my smart cover (didn't like it) so I'm looking to get a screen protector. Which one would you guys recommend? I don't really want to spend a lot on it. Do the anti-glare ones make any difference?
I just destroyed my sgp anti glare. I am a pilot and need the anti glare in the cockpit. Since SGP is out of stock and power support doesn't have any yet, which would you recommend as the best anti glare screen protector for ipad 2 I can buy tonight?
I put a screen protector perfectly on my iPad 3 about 2 weeks ago. No bubbles and no dust. I put the protector under the light and there is millions of scratches on it.How can I remove the scratches? I don't want to put a new protector because this one is put on perfectly.
Most Efficient Way To Apply The Screen Protector To The IPad 2 ?
Dec 25, 2011
I just got my Incipio Smart Feather in the mail today. I have never applied a screen protector of this size before so I'm afraid of messing up given that I only have 1 to try. What's the best and most efficient way of applying the screen protector? Should I start with the home button and get that to align first?
