    I am looking for a screen protector for my iPad, and i've seen a few, like the Clearcal one and such, but i need some feedback because simply looking at the product online won't tell me much.

    My main reason for getting a screen protector (not a full body one, i have the apple iPad case) is to avoid fingerprints and smudges. Glare is not a big factor. I would love to get rid of the glare, but most anti-glare products include this hazy/fuzzy view when looking at it from the side, which i do not like at all. So i mainly need one that does not impede the viewing experience of the iPad, while at the same time eliminating fingerprints. Scratches are not a big deal, but that would be nice too.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Not specifically that brand, but i had used Bestskinever skins, not for the iPad, but my other electronics. The thing i dont like about those is that the cover is rubbery, so sliding the finger around the screen will be alittle harder than usual.

    Now im not sure if they use the same material for the iPad because its touch screen and all, but i have used then for other things before.

    and how has that screen done for you?
    Are there lots of fingerprints after normal use?
    Is the material rubber and hard to slide the finger?

    I don't know about the invisible shield for iPad but for iPhone:
    -you can feel small holes(kinda like an orange) on the screen and back
    -doesn't slide so easy as without it
    -for me, it was kinda hard to apply and some bubbles
    I wouldn't buy it again..

    I just took a 2 $ screen protector from china, and it fits perfectly, without any bubbles.
    But there always lots of fingerprints on it.

    The bubbles if you have any will go away on there own in 2 or 3 days. I have zagg on all of my electronics plus the are giving away a ipad a week and you get a discount code.

    I have know problem with the installation process of the invisible shield, but what im worried about is the performance loss i will get using the skin on a touch-screen surface.
