    I have an iPhone 4 and have had issues applying the adheasive style screen protectors (bought a 3-pack from Verizon). I would like to get one that is easy to apply and can be removed and reapplied if needed. Maybe an anti-static one without residue? Can anyone recommend a good screen protector that is easy for a novice to apply? Please don't say Zagg Invisable Shield as that is not easy in any way.

    Preferrably one that resists finger prints as well...

    Thanks, Bryan

    Power support crystal is the way to go... order from their website or J&R since apple only carries the anti-glare for some reason.

    Kioky just made an applicator for screen shields. They include protectors with purchase. Check them out.

    If you must have a screen protector, go with Power Support.

    This is why I had Apple install my PS Anti-Glare this past Saturday afternoon. I'm terrible with the SP installs. My ex-wife was a pro at it.

    I just took a look at the applicator. Interesting and appealing. But I'm wondering: how well does this work?

    Static cling protectors are usually best applied (depending on your style) from end to end, or from the middle - then spread outwards. This device seems to allow only a "slap" it on type method, leaving the question of bubbling, etc.

    Those who've actually used Kioky, please chime in: I'm interested in something like this if it actually does a great (not just good -- I'm OCD with Screen Protector installs) job. FFS man, I hate installing SPs! :mad:

    Don't waste money on a screen protector applicator. I dont understand the people who would actually buy one of these things.

    Just relax while you're installing it. Most people just get nervous and think that if they don't hurry with the application, dust is going to get under the screen protector and that'll be the end of it. It's relatively easy once you get over the mental hurdle.

    Thanks for the advice.

    It's no wonder I spend so much time of getting it right. I used to hurry, and crappy results was all I ever got. I'm now fairly good, albeit slow, at getting it right.

    I did learn some of the tricks (tape in hand, steam the room up, etc.) which immensely helped. Still, I wish to heck I wasn't compelled to use these things.

    Appreciate your input. :)
