What screen protector for iPhone & iPad?

I have always used Invisibleshields on my phones but I have read good things about Power Support's Anti-Glare protectors. However they seem to be quite pricey.

Does anyone use them or have other recommendations?

I use Bodyguardz IS around £13 and you get 2 ISs.Find them better than Zagg shields no orange peel effect and no stickyness feel of the Zagg.

I am using Zagg invisible shields on both of mine. They are cheap too when you use their voucher codes they always send out

Had a Power Support Anti Glare on my 3GS since i got it over a year ago!!!

It's a great Screen Protector. Think you get 2 or 3 for the £9.99 but can't remember for certain. It rarely shows any smudges or fingerprints, protects the screen and fits perfectly with no bubbling at all.

Could not recommend it enough!!!

Tried a couple of cheaper ones the day i got my iPhone but they bubbled and were rubbish, so headed straight into town to the Apple Shop for the Power Support ones!!!

My decision was vindicated - Power Support for iPhone 4 = the best screen protector I have ever used. Looks great, good application kit, no water, no orange peel rubbery'ness a la Invisibleshield, no bubbles.

On the other hand do not waste your money on any Casemate screen protectors for the iPad. Useless, impossible to apply without bubbles and dust and no way to clean it if you do make a mistake. Straight in the bin and a waste of £16. Have ordered a Power Support one for that now too.

I ordered the iPhone 4 one direct from Powersupport (came from Germany) and have ordered the iPad one from Gearzap who I assume have them in the UK. The former was cheap but with expensive shipping, the latter more expensive with cheap shipping. The net effect was neutral.

Picked up a set of Power Support protectors for the Apple store in Covent garden, and YES they are excellent as quoted in this thread
A matt finish with no finger prints.

Quite happy with my Best Skinz Ever total body coverage. No major orange peel problem. Screen seems clear. I do wonder if something like the power support one would be better on the front screen, but I'm loath to spend £12.95 to find out!

My iPhone does not even look like it has a Screen Protector on it.

Thats how good the Power Support ones are.

To be fair, most people don't realize my phone has an all body skin.

Might take a look when I next am in the Apple Store.

I had the Crystal Power Support one on my old 3G - the best screen protector ever. Noticed that they only seem to offer the anti-glare one for the iPhone 4 though. Any trace of the Crystal one seems to be REALLY expensive (the P&P from PS's website themselves is more than the cost of the item!).

The Crystal version is better for those who want a really invisible look - the matte finish on the anti-glare version is a bit less good IMO.

Unless things have changed for the iPhone 4 version?
