    What do you think about Kioky? I hope it works as good as they say.

    They should have zoom up more on the screen, I can't really tell if it's perfectly aligned.

    It's only $15 on kickstarter so I just went ahead and pledge/pre-order.

    If there's a need, this fills it. But I'm fine applying my Screen Protectors Commando style.

    Question, is this a one shot deal or can you reuse it?

    If you can reuse it, looks like it only works with stiff plastic screen protectors like PowerSupport. Not sure if it will work with vinyl screen protectors like Zagg.

    Looks interesting, finally someone created something like this for us people that suck at putting on screen protectors. Aligning it is a pain, and one you align it then somehow there's dust underneath! :mad: Going to wait for some more info on this, I might pick one up!

    soon to be a china knockoff for $5 with shipping. dust is the biggest problem getting it aligned is fairly easy.

    this method they use is just asking for dust to get stuck to the protector before applying it to the phone...and why the hell is it made of aluminum? its a 99cent "solution" for $15

    I would agree dust is the main issue here. Alignment can be off but dust...UGH! I guess you can apply it in a steam filled bathroom.

    I think the Idea is very cool, If its true that someone offered them 7 figures for the product they are nuts to not take it. This is already probably in a chinese factory being knocked off. I still chipped in tho!

    Can you also use it to apply protector to the back? I would think so cause same dimensions but correct me if I'm wrong?

    in the video it looks like it has cutouts for front application only but maybe you flip the thing over and then do the backside. who knows

    Why they didn't market this as a As Seen on TV product with a nice Infomercial is beyond me.

    Yeah, I am going to have to end up buying like 10 of the applicators so I've been wanting to test them. I've been in contact with them about it. I didn't have a chance to check their CES booth when I was there :(

    Im also a backer. I really liked what they did with the international shipping.
    Free for Canada and only $5 for international. Kudos to them.

    I applied a back protector with this and It worked. If you watch the bombproof or DRX vid on my channel you can see how it turned out. Unfortunately its not on my phone anymore it wouldn't fit with a couple new cases I got
