    Finger Prints can be a PITE (pain in the eyes), especially when you are watching Videos like I do while at LA Fitness.

    I have a Microfiber from Costco but it's too big to fit in my incase Field Bag, so I had to go out and buy one at Wal-Mart (three pack, specifically for Glass).

    I keep one with me at all times in the netbook case I have adopted for the iPad2.

    I carry one in my backpack for when I'm at school, but I have yet to keep on in my iPad sleeve. Probably should start doing so because fingerprints are driving me insane! I have a Power Support Crystal so a lot of the time I will use the inside of my sweatshirt sleeve.

    Sometimes' not always. If it catches my eye when i pack, then i throw it in there, otherwise no. The screen can look really bad when turned off, but when on, its hard to notice any smudges especially if you are focused on what u are doing.

    Ne I never carry them. I nearly ever clean it because the fingerprints don't bother me. If they are bad though I'll give it a wipe with my t shirt.

    I used to, but have no need now, as the Smart Cover, when folded into the triangle, does a great job of cleaning the sceen, after a few wipes(seriously). :D

    I just carry a couple of lens cleaner packets with me, mainly for my glasses but for ipad if needed. Fingerprints don't show up unless the ipad is off anyway and that is what the lid of the case is for to cover it up so I don't see them!!:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I carry that and a bottle of iklear in my laptop bag which is where I mainly carry my iPad. I should put it in the sleeve but I worry about the edge of the microfiber cloth scratching the back of my iPad. Yes I'm nuts. :)

    Same here. Just passed my one-year with iPad 1 and not a single mark on the entire naked iPad. I'll used a microfiber cloth if one's near, but if not, I use my shirt, and I frequently do that. Flip it over, rub across belly (so soft!) and -voila!- clean. No scratches, not a single mark of any kind.

    No, i never carry a microfiber cloth. If you leave the smart cover on for a while it does a good job except for the lines where it does not touch the screen. Also every house im in, i just go to the kitchen and ask for a microfiber cloth, its common kitchenware.

    Only if im gonna go on an extended hotel visit or something, id probably pack a kitchen microfiber cloth :) heck you can find it in the grocery store if you forgot ^_^

    i use my breath and the inside of my shirt for cleaning purposes. if it's really bad I may use my sock. but I have a zagg installed so who cares what you clean it with.. I may use my kids dirty diaper next time just for testing purposes.

    Take care

    Again, take care if using the smart cover to clean the screen, cos when you fold the cover into a stand the microfibre rests on the surface from which it will get dirty and maybe pick up small grit. Don't just transfer this muck to your screen. Use a cloth or whatever.

    I carry a ShaggyMac microfiber cloth in between the screen and SmartCover when in transit. It's just the right size for the iPad and now I don't get those silly dust lines from the SmartCover.

    you can get a mobiwipe, it's a self-adhesive microfiber cleaner

    i just got mine a few days ago, works great, only 4.99 at

    you can stick it on the back of the ipad so it's hassle free:cool:
