    Picked one up at AT&T, thinking about returning it for the full wrap version. Just curious if anyone has used the dry install version

    Thanks

    Cool, thanks. Tempted to rip it open and try but at 29.99 full retail I'd like some opinions first. (read: guinea pigs)


    ;)

    I'm wondering if you can just use fluid and make the dry install a wet install if it's a pain in the ass.

    I can't seem to find a single mention of the dry install version via google except for Zaggs site.

    Strange...

    I believe it's new, so you probably won't find too much about it.

    I got an invisible shield for the front. Cost me $20, but I ended up not liking it and threw it away. lol
    I'll just hold off and wait for the regular screen protectors. The invisible shield is way too thick for my liking.

    Yeah I don't blame you. I was going to try the front and stick with the back. The retina display is truly amazing, IS would kill it for me. The only thing I'll consider is a crystal shield ala Power Support or something.

    Have you tried the Wrapsol? I have heard good things about it and am contemplating making a purchase. Its website also said that it apparently protects from drop damage as well.

    I just installed it. It looks great! Apart from the bubbles which I hope would subside in a few days. It leaves the edges exposed though... And the feel...slightly rubbery, but apart from it, I am happy. It's clear. The screen is just as crisp as without the protector. I'm just hoping that it'll heal itself.

    I'm usually a fan of invisible shield but I noticed faint vertical lines on the front shield..
    With the fine pixels the lines distorted the pictire and you got a rainbow effect on the line. Needless to say I took it off. I kept the back and sides (maximum protection) as the rubbery feel makes it grippy which I like.

    Is the dry application the same feel as the wet app (rubbery)?

    :mad: Do not buy this ****** product you would never be able to put it on the right way and even if you do it will have bubbles that would never go away. All in all you would be very unhappy with this product. i got 2 got screwed and wasted $60.00. I hate Zagg now. Never ever will I buy their product.

    The application instructions are so poor wonder they gave their children to write as technical writers. I mean common man consumers are soending $30 for a peice of plastic that costs them not even $5.

    Wow, thanks. I actually took it back. Too bad, but I've never been a big fan of IS.

    I like my ZAGG invisible shield

    My experience: Yes, it was challenging to install the invisible shield on my iPhone 4, partly because I didn't read the instructions very carefully.

    Also, there did seem to be little bubbles left after installing it. However, as promised by ZAGG, all those bubbles disappeared within 24 hours as the film settled in, and I now have a beautifully protected iPhone with matte finish on the back and glossy finish on the front. The self healing technology of this film really seems to work, and I consider it money well spent. But trust me, you will have your doubts while installing it.

    I have the InvisibleSHIELD Dry also. I just wish I would've installed it better. :) The screen is crystal clear, and I love the matted back :)

    Thanks for sharing. Am I understanding you correctly that the back piece of the dry install IS is matte/anti-glare? Does it have a cutout for the flash and camera?

    The back it matted, sort of makes the back look like leather (it's not the leather skin). It gives it texture, and I love it :) Yes, there are cutouts for the camera & flash. The only downside to the entire process is that you only get one shot. The upside is that the front is much clearer than the wet install, there is also no orange peal effect like the wet install. Great product, if you have a steady hand :)

    Thanks, mbsaeger. Do you have pictures? I'm trying to understand what 'matted' means but I'm not sure that I do. I think of anti-glare when I think 'matte', but it seems like you're talking about the way it feels?

    I had the same reaction! I actualy love it. Yes, it is starting to come off above the camera, due to my extremely unsteady hand, and impatience to play with the phone :)

    The installation is fine, but remember you only have one chance.

    EDIT: Zagg offers a lifetime warranty, so i might have them send me another, and then send this back so i can get it on right. :)

    so is the zagg dry kind of like the wrapsol original??
    does the front screen protector from zagg still have the orange peel effect?
    by the way, your installation looks pretty flawless! good job
