Question BoxWave Anti-fingerprint Screen Protector Has "Rainbow" Look

I've had my Inc since launch day, and I love it! My only complaint was the fingerprints left on the verizon-sold screen protector.

I bought the boxwave anti-fingerprint screen protector online and installed it on my phone. I've had it on there for over a month now. The screen protector does an *excellent* job of not leaving fingerprints! My only complaint is that there is rainbow-like effect on the screen from the protector. For me, it really takes away from the experience when I am watching video or playing a game on my phone.

Has anyone else had a similar experience?

I am thinking of scrapping it and getting another... Has anyone tried both an anti-fingerprint and regular screen protector? Was hoping for some sort of a happy medium.

I recently installed a zagg shield on my Inc. There was a very noticeable rainbow streaking for the first 24 hours. How, 36 hours later it is almost completely gone. Even most of the bubbles have evaporated. I think it's just part of the wet application process.
