I need your assistance to find out the best quality iPad screen care kit. I searched a lot, but didn't find much info on it, even in Apple store. Only found one kit till now. I want an invisible shield that can prevent scratches, fingerprints and other touch screen problems. I have noticed most of the guys recommend microfiber cloth to wipe off the screen.

Any advice and suggestions are welcome.

I am sure they will be available soon.

Most of the phones with touchscreens have them. Not looking forward to trying to apply a sticky screen protector to something the size of an iPad though - judging from my success on various Palm devices. Lots of bubbles and creases.

Invisible Shield will be out with the product you desire in no time at all -- I'd be shocked if it wasn't out already.

I just got my iPad and went to the Ghost Armor stand at the mall and had the guy put it on. I went to lunch and came back and it was done. I think it looks pretty sharp. I had my iTouch done after Christmas and it still looks good.

It is just a glass screen. I use Lens Cleaner that is used on glasses you wear and a lint free cloth at the end of the day and it looks like new.

I used to use the Invisible Shield on my iPhone but when I got the glass replaced, I could never go back to a screen protector. The glass is just to **** smooth and sexy. Same goes for my new iPad. Although I am sure noticing that fingerprints are sticking out like a sore thumb! Ha Ha! Get it? Fingerprints, sore thumb? Oh man. I crack myself up.

No scratches yet but way too many finger prints to count.

Hello everyone, this is my first post on this forum. My wife just got an iPad yesterday so we are looking for a bit of advice on an accessory.

Does anyone know of any decent anti-glare screen protector films for the iPad? My wife and I use them on our iPhones and they are awesome. I wouldn't be without one because the fingerprints drive me crazy. I checked Amazon and ebay but no one has rated them yet and ebay tends to sell a lot of low quality stuff.
Thanks

Well according to the videos I've seen scratching the screen with a metal nail and leaves no scratch marks. But the back side is really easy to be scratched or scuffed.

Careful with the water, or other cleaners. I bought a package of micro-fibre cloths and they clean the screen very well dry. I also bought a small aerosol sprayer of alcohol, but found elswhere online that any cleaner may cause problems.

I have a Zagg protector on order -- maybe it wil reduce finger prints as well.

I had the Zagg Invisible Shield put on and it protects the screen very well. I do miss the smooth feel of the screen but I wanted to protect my screen.

i ordered a ($25) anti glare screen protector. i saw cheaper ones but was afraid they wouldnt last. I cant stand not using a screen protector on my iphone because it gets so oily and my finger gets stuck on it. I just dont know how im going to get the screen protector on such a large device.

I love to jump out of perfectly good airplanes!
