    I purchased the Power Support Anti Glare Film for iPod touch and a white Incase with my new 3g Ipt3... I followed the instructions, never touched the back, cleaned the screen, and used the pre-applicator that comes with it to further clean the screen... My screen shields now have dust stuck to the sticky side... I have tried both (the pack comes with two) and both ended up with dust on them... WTF? This was the biggest waste of 15 bucks... I'm not stupid, but I guess just following directions causes dust to stick to the underside... Any ideas?

    When I installed screen protectors on my HTC Touch Pro phone and 1st gen iPod Touch, I wet the sticky part of the plastic protection and slid it on. With my phone, I did it at 12 midnight on New Years Eve (I know, I have no life) and my neighborhood was filled with smoke from fireworks. So far, no dust.

    I couldnt put mine on without air bubbles i couldnt get out, so i just said screw it.
    Got it for free with my case.

    My 2 year old 1g touch had no scratches on the screen when i sold it.

    I dont think its needed if u arent rough on your electronics.

    if there's dust, try use lift the protector up to where it has the dust, then use a piece of sticky tape to take the dust out, works for me

    I bought one for 15 bucks for two. When I put it on there were not any bubbles or any just on it even though I had used it for a while. I show my dad and he did not even think there was a protector on it. The only way to tell is to look at the edges where you can see the protector has a thickness.

    I think he meant:

    I bought [a package] that included two for $15.

    you can wash it with water

    Then lay clean your ipod screen completely and lay it on your screen

    The water will let you position your screen protector accurately and more importantly get rid of air bubbles and dust.

    After about a day the water will be completely evaporated and you'll have a perfect application of your screen protector.
