The iPad generally has a vividly crisp and clear screen display, unless you are using it in direct sunlight or near another bright source of light. Today we will be looking at a few of the iPad anti glare screen protectors that are on the market.
Glass is a natural reflector and the beautifully shiny quality of the iPad glass allows it to mirror its surroundings, even a pale colored sweater can cause problems as almost all the user can see is the reflection of the garment instead of what is actually on screen. An anti glare screen protector may be the answer to this problem and it should also guard against scratches and chips on the screen, a bonus sure to appeal to many as it will help retain the value of your device in case you should ever decide to sell it.

It seems that reducing glare by using an anti glare screen protector almost always results in loss of clarity, with some versions losing more than others of course. Ease of installation is also varied, some are easy whereas others are frustratingly bubble troubled! As always, we fully recommended that you check out the reviews of any product you are considering before purchasing.
