I find it difficult to watch a video or read on Kindle app. outside in a bright sunny environment.

I know this is a common issue with screens in an out door environment but I was wondering if there were any products available that help to reduce the amount of glare or reflection that is on the iPad screen in these circumstances?

thanks

Anti-glare screen protectors help a lot. Check out power support or speck. It still isn't as easy as reading a book outside but it cuts down at least 80% of the reflection.

Does anyone have any experience with the screen protector that comes with the Otterbox line of ipad cases? I haven't seen any mention of it being "anti-glare", so I'm assuming it doesn't make a difference.

Thanks. I looked up some reviews at iLounge about the anti-glare screen protectors...while they don't seem perfect I think they would at least improve on the amount of glare and even offer some scratch protection.

I'll have to head over to futureshop to se if they have any of the anti-glare protectors in stock.

anyone know of a removable anti glare screen? I'd like to have on to use just when I'm outdoors but like to take it off indoors

I carry a small tent in my backpack. If it's sunny, and I want to use my iPad, I just pitch the tent and crawl inside. Problem solved.
