Confused ZAGG shield problem

I think I put too little solution when applying the shield (three generous squirts down the centre)... it's only been 2 hours but there seems to be a lot of clumped together micro bubbles scattered across the screen as well as regions that are completely perfect. Anyone else experience this?

Unfortunately, the instructions say I can only re-apply within 3-5 minutes of application

Don't worry about them. They will dissipate over the next 3-4 days. Whichever ones you can squeegee to the edge, do so. Keep in mind also, that until the liquid completely dries, every time you squeegee, it will appear that there's dust trapped under the shield. Don't worry about it. Like I said, in 3-4 days you'll be quite pleased with the results. I did a terrible job on mine and I have no micro bubbles at all now, 5 days later.

Ok, thanks! Yes, it looks significantly better this morning. There's still some around the edges but, as you say, they'll dissipate over time so I guess I'll just have to wait :P

The ones on the edge you can easily squeegee out, but I had about 7 near the middle of my screen that wouldn't budge that had me bummed, but as I said, they gradually dissipated on their own. Give it another 3 days or so, if that, and it will become totally bubble free. I keep forgetting I've got it on now. Glad I could put your mind at ease.

I personally don't like the Zagg because of it's orangish effect on devices. i tried one from Amazon called ArmorSuit, i personally prefer this one but has anyone tried both?

I don't like Zagg for the difficulty of putting it on, having to soak the screen to get it to go on right, and the orange peel feel of it when it's dry. I saw a phone that had the Zagg on for about 6 months and it was all discolored. Waste of money, in my opinion. I use these , they go on easy, feel like glass, and are inexpensive. http://www.clarivue.com/

i like zagg only because its so durable and has no smudges... but if i had to buy another screen protector again id go with ghost armor... its much more smoother but it does get smudges... one thing i hated about zagg was it made the screen so so tacky

I have and the Armor Suit is much better, I currently use Stealth Shieldz which are like $5 for 2 on ebay. Zagg's has wicked orange peel and feels very sticky. Also I'm a smoker and at first blamed myself because the Zagg turned yellowish after 3 months, that hasn't happened with the other 2 brands that I've used.

Sorry to hear about your luck. I have never used Zagg but have heard bad reviews and complaints from people more than once.

I liked my Zagg protector on my Samsung Galaxy Tab, but now, after about I think 4 months, it's starting to bubble in the middle of the screen, like I just applied it (As odd as it sounds!). So I am considering taking it off. I tried squeegeeing it out and it only made the issue worse. So mad!

I know. I just don't understand why it would start bubbling?
