Apps for iPads does not review many accessories. That’s because we insist on trying out each of them, before we endorse them. Seems only right; I tell you what I think because I either like or don’t like a product, period. Our budget is only so big, like yours.
One product I really like is the Speck brand Anti-Glare screen protector called ShieldView.
While my film did not go on as easily as the one in the video located “after the break” it wasn’t hard to do… read further to find out just WHY I like it so well.
Now like I said, mine didn’t go on quite as easily… it was easy, I just ended up with more air bubbles than they did. Not sure why, but you see how theirs kid of pulled out the bubbles when they went from corner to corner… well mine didn’t do it that simply. BUT it did not take me long to work them out. I simply wrapped my finger in the provided cloth and eased them to the edges… simple! I figure I am only going to have to do it once so not a big deal.
What I really like about the Speck Anti-Glare ShieldView is 1st that it is really anti-glare. When I am outside particularly. It cuts down on enough glare to be worth the purchase price alone. BUT the BIGGEST benefit I LOVE is that all those pesky, messy fingerprints are GONE! Well, they aren’t all gone, but you know what? With the shield in place you just don’t notice them! I have to remind myself to clean the screen before shooting videos for the website! The fingerprints on the unprotected screen drove me NUTS! This is GREAT!
Okay, so why didn’t I go with some of the pricier models? First off I mentioned budget, I have one just like you do. The other reason is the brand in 2nd place didn’t have a matte anti-glare and that was a real priority since I love using my iPad outside. The fact that they could run nails and stones over their iPad didn’t influence me because I would never, let me repeat that, I would NEVER do that to my iPad! I simply didn’t feel I needed that type of protection. Now if you are thinking about abusing your iPad… definitely go for the other brand. I picked the product that met my needs and price-point at the time.
I give the Speck Anti-Glare Matte Finish Protective Screen Film and Cleaning Cloth 5 out of 5 stars. It does everything it says it would for a competitive price. If this product is something you think will benefit you simply click on the picture link below to order yours today!
