Make the screen smooth again?

I've had my iPod Touch 5 for about two weeks now. When I first got it, the screen was very smooth to the touch, and very finger print resistant. But now the screen's surface is very friction-ny (is that even a word?), and finger prints show up really easily . How can change this?

Get a matte screen protect or wax the screen.

do you have on a screen protector?

If so, remove it. If not, buy a microfiber cloth to clean it once in awhile. I dont know about the new touch screen coating but my Ipad 2 screen is naked and fingerprint is removed very easy. Maybe due to the oleophobic coating.

Touch screens usually respond best to completely dry and moisture-less hands. I don't think it has anything to do with the length of time that you've owned the device.

Definitely don't wax the screen. That will take the oleophobic coating off and then spread it unevenly across the screen.

New screens always feel so good. I just took my 4S in for replacement (broken home button) and the new screen felt awesome.

I think you have to be careful cleaning the screen because of the coating. Maybe a bit of window cleaner?? Maybe that's a little harsh. I think Apple recommend a dry cloth. Google the care instructions, but I doubt you'll be that new screen feel back.
