Bubbles after Zagg invisible shield installation

Just wondering if these left over bubbles will disappear.
During installation i tried to squeegee as much of the bubbles i could, but any further would probably lead to snapping the ipod in half from force.

they will most likely go away after a while

Put it on my voyager, Doesn't it say wait 24 hours or something? I'm sure mine had some bubbles that went away, give it some time.

PS looking at your pics. You should of watched the installing video more.

You can always start over if you have enough liquid left. If I remember correctly, the instructions say something about minor bubbles disappearing after a few days while the coating cures.

The solution is just soapy water. So you can just add water to the little bottle and use it again.


I remember Zagg having my instructions on website.

The bubbles will all flatten out. I didn't have any that big on my ipod touch, but when I used invisishield on my macbook I had some pretty big ones such as the ones in your pictures, maybe bigger, and within about three days all of the liquid managed to evaporate out of the pores in the rubber (I'm guessing that's what happens). As the bubbles gradually go down, sort of massage the bumps down every once and a while. This way the bubbles are less likely to cause small wrinkles in the invisishield as it flattens out. You might be able to tell where the bubbles were after they dry out by very slight wrinkles, but everything should be nice and flat eventually.

If it doesn't turn out how you want it to, I think they have a 30 day return policy if you aren't satisfied?

I don't know... I've put invisible Shields on 2 iphones, a MBA and my new MBP, and have always took special care to squeegee out the bubbles. Even if they do flatten out, you're still going to have ridges in the material, which may hinder the iphone usability considering it's a touchscreen device.

If Invisible Shields are anything like Best Skins Ever, use a credit card (or anything similar) to smooth them out while still wet.
