With the screen area of the iPad being so large, and having had mixed experiences with applying screen protectors to iPod Touch, iPhone and HTC phone devices, I was a bit worried about applying this product.
When it came to it, it was dead simple. When actually applying, just bend the screen protector gently into a curve down it's length, so that the middle section touches the iPad first, then slowly let the protector straighten out from the middle strip to the edges. I did this and got absolutely no air bubbles and good central placement on the iPad screen. And that was first go, so I still have a spare left!
When in place, this protector gives a fantastic non-glare cover to the screen and it is so far very resistant to scuffs and scrapes too. I use a cleaner fluid for glasses to remove greasy fingerprints and the screen protector looks as good as new each time.
