    I have 2 airbubbles in the middle of my screen and I've already wasted 2

    I'm thinking of just stripping it off. Are they worth it? If something's really gonna mess up your screen, it will.. a screen protector wont do anything

    The air bubbles usually disappear after a few days as the screen protector is porous. Stay with it.. Use protection kids, better to be safe than sorry...

    tip to bring it on:
    CLEAN IT VERy good
    begin at the bottom and use a cardbord piece to slide it up ( not just stick in 1 go , begin at bottom )
    use the cardboard to have the remaning bubbubles out
    done

    My mum brought me a screen protector from the cheap shop the other day, it's not quite big enough to cover the whole front of the Touch, but it covers the main screen area.

    I was so proud I managed to apply it perfectly without bubbles. One advantage is that the fingerprints are easier to remove than on the bare screen.

    Oh, and I love the squeaky noises you get when using your 'shammy' microfiber on the screen shield =D

    I had a proporta echo. I loved the mirror effect. But it had extreme glare. Not all screen protectors are porous. I mainly use screen protectors to allow my fingers to glide smoothly through the screen. The iPod Touch is made from scratch proof glass so i'm not worried about getting the screen scratched.
