I've used screen protectors before, including the tempered glass kind. Never had one of this quality before. It was super simple to apply although I admit I did not have the patience to use the included wet/dry wipes or the marker stickers. I simply cleaned my screen with a microfiber cloth, removed the plastic to reveal the adhesive, then lined up the home button and the sides of the iPad before slowly lowering the protector onto it. That's it. Literally had zero bubbles or dust underneath. The thing that truly blew my mind though was the coating. I don't know what kind of oleophobic nanotechnology this company is using but it does NOT pick up fingerprints. At ALL. I tried smudging and smearing and dragging my fingers all over it. Not a single mark. I'm seriously impressed.
