    I got an ipad 1 32gb two weekends ago and an incase book jacket (nice case/stand combo). anyways, this thing is so finger print smudgy. not an issue at night or even when its on but when its off it looks ugly as hell.

    do u clean it often or just have a screen protector?

    im considering an antiglare just to to not have the ugly smudges and the nice glide of antiglare protectors.

    I have the iPad 2 with a power support crystal film and I highly recommend this for your iPad 1. Or the antiglare both are good. But I still clean mine everyday regardless.

    I clean it when it gets smudgy. A few wipes with a microfiber cloth and it's fine. I don't have a screen protector on it. Like anything else, just clean it when it gets dirty, it's not a big deal.

    Oh, and consider washing your hands once in a while. :rolleyes:

    I clean it after every use

    Usually just needs a quick wipe with a microfiber cloth and it looks perfect.

    I've never used anything other than a Microfiber tool called Fuzzy Fingers and on occasion breathing on it then using the Microfiber. Both of our iPad 1 screens are still flawless (no protector) as they were out of the box. I'd say I give it a quick wipe every other day or so.

    These are GREAT

    I've had mine for nearly a month and just cleaned it for the first time today. Sure, it looks like **** when it's off, but when it's on I don't see the prints at all, so I don't really care about them. When it's off it's usually in the closed case anyhow.

    I have an anti-glare on mine, but I still give it an occasional wipe down.

    As needed with a clean micro fiber cloth.

    I'm not interested in wasting money on "special magic cleaners"

    In the rare event I need something moist, warm water applied sparingly to the cloth does the job every time.

    And my t-shirt is used to do the cleaning.

    Microfiber once a day, to clear/clean off the days' fingerprints.

    Every use, I have several of the Apple cleaning clothes from my MacBook Pros (which rarely need cleaning) I tucked one in the back of the case I bought and it's always available.

    Whenever I can see fingerprints, I start vigorously rubbing the screen all over my chest.
