    For those of you who are using the new Invisibleshield HD on your Ipad 3, were you able to insall without any particle being trapped underneath the shield?

    I had mine put on at a kiosk in the Mall and they have not been able to successfully install without a single item trapped under the film. I'm on my 3rd shield and they did a pretty good job, but there are still two small specks on the black border edges of the iPad.

    I may just be at the point of living with it since they are pretty tiny, but it still bugs me. I also may be too picky. Most average consumers would never notice.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    I self installed mine and I've had to remove, wash and reinstall a couple of times to get a dust free install. From my experience, it is near impossible to install these things dust free and I installed mine under ideal dust free conditions.

    Go to the bathroom, open up hot water, make the whole place steamy and voila. No dust, no lint, no "nothing" ;-)

    Yes, if I was putting it on myself, that is what I would do. I may see about getting a replacement and doing myself.

    I guess my place is exceptionally dusty cuz I did the same thing. I even ran the hot shower extra long.

    I can't imagine these things being installed in a shopping mall.

    This has been my experience also. I feel like I almost need to install this in an operating room.

    I'm now wondering if I should just cut my losses and go naked.

    Does anyone know if areas can be touched after several days after initial installation? If I could lift by re-wetting the screen I could remove the dust and hair since they are close to the edges and home screen button.

    I would think peeling it up now would stretch it out since it has had time to dry and adhere to the screen.

    Thanks. I know Zagg says it's not possible, but thought I would ask. I'm almost at wits end dealing with dust and hair trapped under the screen. This will be my fourth shield going on at the mall.

    Several forum members speak very highly of the Power Support screen protectors. They do not have one out for the iPad 3 yet.

    Yes they do.

    It's called Power Support screen protector for the iPad 2.

    Are you reapplying after it has been on for several hours or right after initial installation?

    After installation. But I had to trash my previous installation.

    I ignore the micro bubbles cuz they eventually go away. But I get one or two big dust bubbles and start all over. Remove, wash and reapply.

    Wee, if that is the case, then I'm back to having them put another one on.
