I'm not a fan of doing the shower thing, so any tips/tricks would be very welcome! And before you ask, yes I cleaned the screen thoroughly prior to the application and was in a very clean/dust free spot when I attempted it.
This is what I usually do (after making sure that there's no dust particles on the screen, after cleaning).
Prepare multiple pieces of tape on the table that I'm applying the screen protector for use if needed. I start from the top and use the provided squeegee card to guide each little 'bit of the screen protector down onto the screen step by step as quickly as possible (making sure no air bubbles are left while pushing each little portion of the protector down, and pulling up any small portion that has an air bubble and re-applying). If a small piece of lint jumps in, I stop, hold the screen protector up, grab a piece of scotch tape, lift the protector slightly to pull that piece of lint off with the tape, then go again.
The key for me, whenever I've applied these things the best, was getting the protector on as quickly as possible using the squeegee as a guide to make sure there were no air bubbles. That always seemed to prevent lint from getting trapped in. That also meant having to make sure the protector is lined up exactly where it should be.
