Every review is talking about bubbles.
Turn your ipod totally off first, to avoid any static, smart-alecs!
Then, clean off your ipod and the screen protector before you apply using both your ipod cleaning cloth and handily the one that comes with these screen protectors.
Take the screen protector by the sides once you've cleaned it up a bit, so you're not touching the screen protector surface, and peel one protecting side of using the orange strip
Then apply, starting at the bottom, so you can fit it nicely around the home button.
Then after that pull of the the other protecting side using the blue strip.
I don't have any bubbles on my screen at all, and a tiny one at the bottom near my home button, but that 's because there's a tiny grain of dust in the middle of it that obviously escaped my attention.
So I'm very happy. And how cheap is this.
And they come in two's, so I still have another one for goodness knows when I'll need it.
