    I know there are probably a ton of threads, but I'm probably just bad at searches.

    Is there a screen protector that people prefer for Swype? I had a Phantom Skinz one and it just got shredded somehow. :-/ Bad batch maybe?

    Swyping a naked screen is just awful sometimes. Either my slightly oily fingertips don't slide well over the screen or it works fine sometimes (hit or miss really).

    Any suggestions for what works best with swype?

    Fyi, when I switched to SGP Steinheil Anti-Fingerprint for HTC Droid Incredible my figures glided over the keyboard effortlessly. I hope this helps.

    Good question: As I mentioned online, the ooooonly difference I saw was when I looked at the screen from a veeeery acute angle, like having the phone on the table and my looking over at it from a sever angle... then it was a bit cloudy, otherwise, I don't see a difference and I love the lack of smudge. I don't see myself using any other protector on this phone or any other, for that matter, for the duration.

    I will second that. I have the steinheil anti fingerprint and im using swype right now to type this. I love it and like he said it looks very clear to me unless looking at an angle. When i first put it on i couldn't tell a difference at all. Your finger moves so nicely with swype and no fingerprints is always a plus

    Is this screen protector that you're suggesting better for swype than the non-protected glass ? Most of the time the glass is fine for swype on my Fascinate, but when it's wiped clean, by my pocket for instance, it gets a bit tacky.

    Turns out SwiftKey is a better keyboard anyway. No need for a special screen protector.

    Haha, yeah. I found this post in my subscribed list and I figured I'd throw my two cents in. Better late than never!

    Although I like the rubbery feeling of the Zagg protector, and how it is self-healing, it's not that great for Swype. My next phone I will def go with the Steinheil.
