    Finally received my iPad today. I'd already bought the Zagg full-body InvisibleShield and the Apple case. I've read quite a bit on these forums that the shield and case were creating a mess (permanent purplish stains - saw some depressing pics) out
    of the back of the iPad when you take it out of the case.

    Any recommendations please?

    Ditch the zagg, they feel horrible, sticky tacky yuck. There are better ones, I use power support which are very good, but others are too. Never understood the popularity of the zagg, I think it' just cause Best Buy carries it.
    love the apple case. Keep that. Never saw no stains with the apple case, strange. Just put some armor all (or better brand) plastic protectant on the case, fixes it right up.

    I like Zaggs for the body but Power Support Anit-Glare for the screen.

    I can't figure out why you would want the full body Zagg and the Apple case anyway. The Apple case will do what the Zagg body wrap does, won't it? One or the other seems right to me.

    I sent a Zagg screen protector for my iPhone back for a refund because I really disliked the orange peel appearance and the tacky feel. The refund was given, no questions asked.

    Thks people! Solid info.

    I've now decided to not used the shield for the back of the iPad. The screen: Better safe than sorry. Thinking about putting it on tonight. But I'II keep reading these posts.

    Again, BIG thks for your help.

    If you already have paid for the Invisible Shield, why not put it on the screen? It's easy to take off if you don't like it.

    If you can return it for a refund, I would do that if I were you. But I'm not, so you should do what you think will be best for you.

    If you want something for th back I highly recommend Wrapsol. Honestly, I love it. It gives it a matte finish so you can't tell it is on the iPad as the aluminum is matte on the btwck. It feels great, and wasn't hard to put on. Check out youtube for wrapsol videos... Thats how i made my decision.

    I have the zagg with the apple case , it was nice ,but the apple case flap was annoying when using the accelerometer , the zagg was pointless when it is in the apple case except for the front screen protector , the zagg skin suffers from blue stains if you leave it inside the apple case for a long period of time.

    I wouldn't go naked , every time you put down your iPad down when you need to go to the bathroom or grab a soda from the fridge , laying it on the table can potentially scratch or Nick the iPad

    thks, very helpful

    thks so much guys. Decided to go with the screen shield only (just put it on in fact - simpler than expected) and the Apple case.
