I just spray some glass cleaner on it and wipe it dry with a handkerchief. Yeah, it IS a fingerprint magnet

i like to use the wet-naps you get from wing joints. luckily i own a sports bar, so i have easy access, but using one of those followed by the included microfiber cloth works extremely well.

I've been using a generic microfiber cloth I picked up at OfficeMax. Works pretty well too.

I have read that quite a few people use RainX, does anyone do that here? Also if not off topic, screen protectors, again anyone use them and possibly recommended brands? Thanks!

rainx will work, instructions here:
Fingerprint problem solved (mostly) - xda-developers

if you want a screen protector, i would go this route:
Amazon.com: Skinomi TechSkin - Screen Protector Shield for Viewsonic G Tablet + LIFETIME REPLACEMENTS: Electronics

i personally do not use either, but have heard good things about both.

I have a TechSkin on the way. I'll report back on whether it makes any difference in terms of fingerprints. The generic screen protector I put on my phone seems to actually make the fingerprint issue worse.

Not sure if anyone is interested in being this ummm... protective of their screen, but I've actually just used, Rainx, 2 coats and then 2 coats of Nu Finish car polish (That once a year stuff, in an orange bottle), and still it doesn't stop finger prints, but makes it limits them and makes it very easy to clean!

I'd be very careful if trying this, try and keep it away from the plastic surrounds of the screen, Nu Finish isn't supposed to play nice, but doesn't seem to distort anything, plastic or glass, I do make sure ALL of it is remove from any plastic it touches though.

Still have to add try this at your own risk, been on for a couple of days on mine and seems fine! Hope this helps!

I've had the Skinomi skin on my G-Tab for a few days now, and I'm actually pretty impressed with how well it resists fingerprints. It also seems to improve viewing angles a little bit too, which is odd.
