They're only bubble free if you apply it properly. Do it in a steamy room AND use the hinge method if you want 100% no bubbles.

Get a PowerSupport AG. Easiest screen protector to get on because it's slightly thicker and therefore easier to get on.

What I do is use a small piece of cloth to push out the bubbles. It usually helps if you clean the screen first with the same cloth before applying the screen protector carefully, and you got to try a few times before getting it flat without a lot of bubbles. Lay it on a small bit at a time then use the small cloth to stick the protector on.

Bad idea, I have use a screen protector from day 1 with my iPod touch 5th gen. About 8 months later the screen protector is really scratched up. Plus I bought an expensive military "HD" one that cost about $30 each. The screen quality is not degraded at all. You get what you pay for.

To the OP, it takes patience, I was able to get mine with not even one bubble, most of the time I don't even know if it's still on.

I'm rubbish at doing these. When I first got my nexus 7, none of the shops sold them so I was forced to fit my own and that was the only one I managed to get on any device without air bubbles. Now I just get the shop where I it from to fit if for me.

I use these:
Tech Armor Apple New iPod Touch (5th / Latest Generation) HD Clear Screen Protector with Lifetime Replacement Warranty [3-Pack]
http://amzn.com/B008XV7VTG

I first line up the home button and curve on the corner. Then I make sure that the screen protector is parallel to the sides of the iPod touch. Then I check that the camera cut out is in line with the the front facing camera. Then I use a credit card to push down on the protector to the screen as I pulled bottom layer off. As I pull the bottom layer off I slide the card with it to get the least amount of bubbles possible.
Hope this helps.

I put a Zagg full body protector on my Touch 2nd gen jobbie several years ago. It was no problem putting it on and even though it seemed to have a few small bubbles under it they disapeared when it all dried out. You put it on wet, they supply the pure water and a cerdit card size plastic applicator for fitting it too. OK, cost more than a lot of others but as said before you get what you pay for.

And! They give a lifetime guarantee ! What more can you ask for ??

Hello. I had my reservations about screen protectors too; until someone suggested me to take a look at Gearmaxx screen protector in ebay. It's easy to install and it looks AWESOME on my screen. It feels great too. I purchased it on ebay and it's definitely worth the investment. I suggest you give it a try. And yes, the shipping is free.

There is no such thing as a screen protector that is easy to install in my experiences. I use tech armor because if I run out I can ask for replacements, for a lifetime excellent customer satisfaction and support.

There are some screen protectors out there that are really easy to apply. you should either pay an expert to install the one you have already purchased or choose your screen shield wisely the next time. I got a screen protector from ebay and it was really easy to install (No pins or Credit cards were involved). The surface looks really good too. The brand's name is "Gearmaxx". Here is an ebay link for you!! http://stores.ebay.com/GEARMAXX
