My iPad Screen Protector – Application Tips

My iPAD case and screen protector, by Clear Wave Premium, came in last night. My camera’s out of commission so that’s not my picture to the right (it’s from another user), but that’s pretty much what the case looks like. It looks super cool but I’m also thinking of getting a case with stand features – more on that in the future.

I was a little nervous about putting on the screen guard. The kit I bought came with only ONE free screen protector. I have massive lint-laden bubbles on my current smartphone screen so I was a little leery of the fact that I would have only one shot to get this right or risk an additional 2-day wait for new ones. I scoured reviews for tips and videos – the most successful folks seemed to clean their screen meticulously and then apply starting from the corner.

My screen guard was packaged like a sandwich with three pieces of plastic stuck together. There are two thin outside pieces of plastic and the actual guard – which is slightly thicker – is in the middle. I’ve read that not everyone’s screen guard is labeled the same, but below are my recommended tips for a perfect application based on my experience with a guard that had two protruding stickies.
