    I absolutely hate the fuzzy effect caused by the matte screen protector my gf has put on her Ipad Pro. Does anybody know if it's possible to get a removable one I could flip off when I wanted to draw with the Apple pencil? Or if there is a protector that is matte but keeps the retina look of the screen. Someone please help, I was enjoying myself so much using it, but now it actually makes my eyes go funny like they can't focus :-(

    You could install an NuShield DayVue screen protector instead. All the benefits of matte, indeed better results, but none of the fuzziness of the typical matte screen protectors as its an anti-reflective film as opposed to the diffusion style matte films.

    Ah interesting, thanks! Do you know if it has a matte 'feel' with the pencil? I should have mentioned, that's the reason my gf has the protector on; she likes the extra drag on the pencil to make it feel more like paper.

    If you're using a case you don't need a disgusting screen protector

    Yeah it's still got that traction feel to it, maybe not quite as rough, but definitely still there.


    It's more to do with the fact that a matte screen protector gives you a closer feel to pen on paper with the Pencil, rather than the smooth slidy glass. Some of us like that tactile feedback.

    People keep saying this, but how often do you use the pencil, with varying pressure (including quite hard) .. Have you seem all the reviews and users who've scratched their screen with rogue dust that's got between the nib and the glass?

    I'm not risking that.

    TrueBlou - thanks! That's a a great tip. I'm currently using a tempered glass glossy thing I can't decide if I like or not. Need to practice on it more I guess.

    From what I understand, the Moshi AG is washable and can be reapplied since the sticky part is just around the outside.

    I just put on this one http://www.amazon.com/iLLumiShield-...&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00 . I read that there was minimal haze, but you can still see a little of that matte effect when looking at white backgrounds, especially when scrolling. The pencil feel is nice and there are no finger prints but if I am still looking for a clearer one. One other benefit, though, is that it doesn't make that noisy sound you can get when the pencil hits a tempered glass protector.

    Are there any matte glass protectors anyone would recommend? (or at all!) When I botched the application of one of my glass iPhone protectors I was surprised to see the sticky layer can actually be peeled off, leaving you just with a glass overlay.. Couple of rubber bands and you could use it as a occasional matte cover, if such a hard matte screen protector exists. :D You'd have to be careful transporting it, but it might suit someone better than an always on matte protector.
