    Does anyone know whether the touchscreen on the iPhone works well if you put a scratch resistant shield on it? I'm a huge fan of the Invisible Shield (have it on all my iPod and Cells) but am concerned about whether this would affect fucntionality of the touch screen. I know these shields are available for sale, but was curious as to whether anyone has experience with this, or maybe asked the question at the Apple Store when purchasing

    It works fine. My invisible shield has yet to arrive. However, I bought a screen protector at the Apple Store and it works great!

    i bought a screen protection film from the apple store
    the company is called power support

    It's actually WAY WAY WAAAAAY better than invisible shield.

    Just how better?
    Oh nothing much except you don't have to worry about those tiny bubbles and all the water you have to apply and the squeeze things.

    Seriously, this thing applies itself. You align the top and slowly let it do its work from top to bottom.

    Another important thing is that invisible shield leaves a mark and you can tell you put something

    This one is really hard to tell if you don't look at the edges.
    It's as if nothing is there.

    I'm seriously recommending this product for everybody.

    Are there any air bubbles with the screen using this screen? My local Apple store does not have it in stock...

    For the Powersupport screen? Absolutely none. It's a stiffer plastic and just kind of glides on instead of having to be actively rubbed on. It's held on not using adhesive, so there's no goop left on when you take it off. I love it.

    Where did you buy it? I would rather not order it online.

    i'm not worried if it will function but will it be as smooth to glide your finger... i have it for my psp and cell phone but i tried flicking my finger on it and its kinda hard... not as smooth as the original plasic protection on the phone

    I'm a big fan of www.bestskinsever.com. They just released their full coverage iPhone skin and it's on sale thru the 5th for 5.99. It takes a bit of finesse to put them on but the end results are amazing.

    I've been debating the invisible shield, I've been reading about a "rainbow" effect on the film when viewed at an angle. I'm curious to see how it works for you.

    Crystal Film Inquiry

    Would anyone with a powersupport crystal film kindly take a pic or two of it? My iPhone should arrive friday and I'm very on the fence about my protection choices.

    Don't have my camera with me right now, but I can tell you that this protector is great. I am normally a huge advocate of shieldzone invisible shields, but this product is so much easier to apply, due to the static cling. If you mess up, all you have to do is attach a small strip of scotch tape to the film and lift it up so you can reposition it. Invisible shields have a sort of textured feel to them, while these power support films mimic the iPhone's screen in terms of smoothness and clarity. Another plus is that 2 films are included in the package.

    The one from the Apple store is AWESOME....applies super easily and if you make a mistake, it comes up super easy

    A definite reference

    Anyone getting the Invisible Shield for iPhone?

    http://www.shieldzone.com/item_description/APLIPHONE.html

    If anyone is getting it or already has it--do you have any impressions of it? Just wondering how multi-touch worked. I love my IS for my iPod and was thinking about getting it for iPhone.

    I'll probably buy it and put it on the back, but leave it off the screen. I'm not a huge fan of how the clickwheel works with my IS, it's slow and less responsive, I know they say it works fine but I'll sacrifice a couple scratches for a beautiful glass feel.

    Does the Powersupport shield have a back cover?

    I'm more worried about scuffing up the back of the device.

    Just got the invisishield installed. Is nice and does not affect the clarity of the phone at all. Plus now my entire phone is protected from scratches.

    I love the invisible shield products, however, they are quite "tacky," meaning they aren't as smooth as glass. I ordered one for the iPhone, but after reading this thread i might pick up the one from the Apple Store, how much was that one?
