Alrighty...'tis been over 24 hours now...what do you think of it now? Has it really smoothed out all the bubbles and such, as it says in the instruction?

Mine has just arrived so I will be installing it tonight...maybe...unless I get impatient and start installing here at work around lunchtime!

I still can't see the Desire on PhantomSkinz, but will likely try one of those out.

Well...it's like this...

I got pretty hacked off with dog fluff so in the end I took a bit of a drastic measure. I noted and remembered which side goes on the screen, then dunked the whole thing in a big bowl of water, gently rubbed it in the bowl, shook off excess water, then plonked it on the screen. I managed to get a fairly clean install in the end. After all that the outer surface is now nowhere near as sticky as before! In fact, by now it is quite pleasant to use. I have to admit the surface is not perfect - there are a couple of tiny dimples but they are only visible when the screen is off. When the screen is on I have nothing to complain about. I have also used it in a car cradle and have no problems swiping on the screen, even when the whole cradle arm was shaking in a rattly diesel van.

I only took this drastic measure after 3 fluffy installations and discovered the applicator sponge itself was covered in fine fluff! I'm okay with this skin now and not awaiting Phantom Skinz's one with bated breath. I'm not sure if my rough dunking treatment made it smoother but I'm guessing you won't have to go through all that with Phantom Skinz.

YMMV of course.
