    I'm waiting for my iPad. Pre-ordered last week. I've already bought the Apple case, and want to buy the highly-recommended InvisibleShield screen protector. Apparently, that would be a huge mistake since the case seems to be leaving permanent purplish stains on the shield.

    Have many people experienced this? And the solution? The shield is a must-have, I've heard and read.

    Suggestions?

    Correct. I've had mines on for approx 4 days and just noticed it whilst you raised the topic. Not a big problem for me as I don't plan to take the apple case off, still waiting for that perfect case and the Apple case to me is right up there in my fav's.

    p.s. i dont have a front shield on (so im not sure how well the actual touch screen is). if that goes purple, thats worrying.

    Crap! I hope this doesn't happen to my PowerSupport anti-glare screen....it is just on the screen, not the back.

    some good some bad ...

    Just got word from a nice person in these forums that he/she has never had a prob with iPad case and InvisibleShield together.

    Samurai: Thks so much for the info. Now let us know if the stains actually leech onto the back of the iPad, or simply into the Shield (not too bad).

    that's basically from not putting on the shield on perfectly. that's always been the problem w/ invisibleshield and best skin ever, etc. any part that on an edge that was not put on perfectly will start to change color with time, eventually a yellowish color.

    I posted images of mine a few weeks ago and no one took me serious.

    As time passes the stains on the shield get worse. On the back you can see the shape of the square where you "fold" the cover under. It has nothing to do with a bad application or yellowing.

    Is the back of the iPad also purplish?

    Does it leave a stain on the back of the iPad, not the shield? Now that would be major and depressing ...

    My hope is it's just the shield but as I don't want to take it off to see. Maybe once my Vaja case shows up I'll think about taking it off.

    I have the same problem with my sgp incredible shield. I have contacted the company repeatedly over the last two weeks and they keep giving me the run around saying they can't find my amazon order number even though amazon has it in their system. Mine looks horrible and nothing gets the stains out.

    I have this exact combo, and the back of mine looks exactly like the poster above me, and the case has only been on for 4 days now. And it was professionally installed at the invisible shield store...this blows.

    So I have had the Wrapsol on the back of mine since I got it about 3 weeks ago. I just started using the Apple Case, for perhaps 3 days and I am having the same problem :(

    Not happy about it at all, makes it look kinda bad, especially since I don't like using a case 100% of the time.

    Does this happen to the iPad without the shield?

    Everything's cool!

    I bought the full-body InsivibleShield even before I received the iPad. After advice from people responding to one of my threads, I decided to go screen protector and naked back - love the feel of touching it. And yes the back is still as beautiful as when I first got it. Perfect!

    I keep the iPad in the case 5 days a week, and out 2 days. Very easily slips in and out.

    I think that's the best combo (for me). And brother did I like the naked front screen the first 2 days - but just in case ...

    I've peeled mine off both front and back. I think I'm done using any kind of screen protectors from now on. Naked looks, and feels best:cool:

    I love my BestSkinsEver shiield, but I am having the exact same problem!

    I just reordered a new one, and this time, I'm going to cover up that dreaded square in the back of the Apple Case so it does not make direct contact with the shield.

    I took my iPad out of its case for the first time in months. Seems the issue is getting way worse.

    Cannot wait for my Vaja case to show up...

    If we tape the inside of the apple case would this prevent staining? I'm trying to think of a good idea since I just installed my second zagg due to the blue marks
