    I have a white 4s and I put a zagg screen cover on the front and its started to turn yellow. I don't know why because I'm kind of a germaphobe and wash my hands a lot. Any ideas?

    thanks for any help

    Yes, Zagg invisibleSHIELD is known to turn yellow, as well as other wet installation protectors.

    It happens.

    Just another reason why dry install protectors are better in the long run imo :)

    Yeah i notices that on my Zagg, though that it kind of added a little darkness to the white iPhone so i took it off.

    Put on the skinomi techskin. WAY BETTER

    But i've only had it on for two weeks compared to a month of ZAGG but so far

    I think Zaggs are semi porous, so they can absorb "stuff". They turn yellow from the oils for your skin. If you put them under a black silicone case, they turn black. I had this happen with my old Blackberry

    Zagg has a lifetime warranty. Just register your product on their website and submit a claim for replacement. You'll pay like $3-4 shipping and they send you a brand new screen protector. All you have to do is send your old one back to them. If you don't send your old one back, they charge you like $15 for the new one they sent you. Their customer service is really great. Unfortunately, their screen protectors aren't. I had always used Zagg because I "though" they were the best. Well, I recently removed my Zagg and installed a crystal clear "dry install" screen protector and OMG what a difference. SOOO much better and smoother.

    InvisibleShield is known to turn yellow. I've used InvisibleShield on all my iPhones and iPads, and have just installed one on my MacBook Air. Like the previous poster said, Zagg has lifetime warranty and you could send the old one in for a new one. You just have to register your old one with them and place a replacement order. They'll take your credit card information and send you a new replacement along with a return envelope for the old ones. If they don't receive the old ones, you're charged for the full price of the replacement ones, I believe, so remember to send those in and you'll only be charged for shipping.

    InvisibleShield, I found, was the best for me when it came to protecting from scratches. Over this summer, however, I got tired of the stickiness on the front, so I swapped it with a PowerSupport Matte protector and boy, what a difference it made! I bought another PS Matte for my iPad2 and have been loving it. I still have the InvisibleShield on the back on both devices for protection, however.

    Zagg is the worst ever you better off going with another company like Steinheil SGP for screen protectors and they now offer a full body protecion as well.

    Zagg will charge you for shipping your replacements and you have to pay for your returned skins to them. So yeah fail all around you end up spending more then just going to get another pair of skins that will turn yellow and not stick right to your device, and that is why they offer lifetime warranty. I for one stay away far away from Zagg.
