    I use the version by clear coat. Its great. A lot easier to insal then invisible shield and also performs great.

    Another good factor for me is if you balls up on the instal they will send you another one free of charge!!

    Look and feel of Zagg Invisible Shield


    I really hesitated to go through the hair-pulling installation but it only took about 20 minutes. I'm sooooo glad that I did install it. Works great, feels a little 'grabby' but other than that it was great. Got mine from Amazon for 16 rather than paying $26 at the Zagg site.

    Get a BSE, believe me, been there, done that. BSE is cheaper, better quality and easier to apply, plus it ships faster and it's a relatively painless install.

    Take a look at this thread for some tips on the IS/BSE:

    I can't stress this enough, even if Zagg offers lifetime replacements, BSE's product is (imo) superior. I screwed up my iPad install of the IS initially, despite using all the fluid...and while comparing my BSE to my friend's IS (on his iPad), I also found the BSE to feel nicer, smoother.

    I guess it's a question of taste, but I'm now a BSE believer.

    I have zagg IS installed on front and back. The front shield is not/hardly noticeable when the screen is turned on. All in all, if you don't mess up your IS when installing, it should look good. It gives you grippier surface, so some may prefer naked front, I personally don't mind one way or another. I just don't want to worry about getting the touchscreen scratched.

    Personally, I prefer shields that requires wet installation, namely IS and BSE, as I have failed to install all kind of other shields. IS/BSE, once installed, cannot be removed and re-applied, but as long as you haven't let the shield dry, you can re-install or correct it as long as you want.

    IS or BSE? Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but IS doesn't offer you a replacement if you mess up your installation. Considering that if you installed the shield successfully and use iPad like any normal person, you probably won't need a replacement for the life of your gadget, so choosing BSE can save you money.

    I have had good experience with BSE in the past, but they didn't offer shield for iPad when I was looking for one, so I bought IS with a 50% promo code.

    When you say that the front has a grippier surface, is it grippy enough to not allow a smooth glide from a foam stylus, like the pogo sketch?
