    I would get the Zagg. None of the things seem necessary...

    Get that kit for the random things (note that the chargers, extending cables and screen protectors will be garbage) and purchase a best skins ever. 9 bucks and same material. Just no water sprayer added. I used a cup of water with kitchen soap and sprayed it with my fingers (flicking them at the skin + screen) and it worked fine. Takes 2, 3 days for all bubbles to disappear so don't poke around a lot!

    All of the things in the kit look like garbage.... IMO. And I would recommend a BSE also, and you could also just but the solution in an empty spray bottle from Windex or something, but make sure it is thoroughly rinsed out.

    I absolutely agree. BSE is quite good and the price is very reasonable too.

    marketing. zagg wins hands down there. also installation is much easier since it comes with the spray + card. i guess the little things matter a lot when taking about those.

    Installation was just as easy without any spray. Just dip the BSE into a bowl of water, let it drip off and you're ready to go.

    What I want to say is, those additions are pretty much redundant. And the result is the same.

    I don't think a squeegee and some spray that you can home-make is worth $17....
    And the $17 saved helps too. :)

    As the others have said. BSE is very affordable and durable. They are pretty much identical to the zagg ones. While I like zagg, you can't stiff lip a good deal like the BSE http://www.bestskinsever.com/

    Of course it isn't worth that much.. but that may be what makes it more popular, in addition to all the marketing.

    Plus Zagg consumers probably never even heard about BSE. I first used Zagg skin on my iPhone 2G and never heard about a BSE skin until the iPhone 4 came out.

    But this is what I am confused about. Why they aren't more popular.

    It is marketing/advertising. They sell Zagg at Target and Best Buy. I never heard of BSE until I joined these forums. If you went into Best Buy to get a skin and the Zagg was sitting next to the BSE and the prices were what they are today, the BSE might gain some popularity...especially if the employees let people know they are just as good.

    Thanks

    I got a BSE and installed it.
    Do I really have to wait 24 hrs until I can turn on my Ipod Touch?
    I let it sit overnight for 12 hours so far.

    Hm. How many hours has it been?

    Oh, and make sure to run a cloth around the edges to catch any moisture.

    Hmmmm.... As long as you wipe the edges clean, I don't see any harm. But, that's just me.
