Sold under several names, Capdase's new line of iPod and iPhone screen protectors are designed to cover part or all of a given model's face and controls. PrivacyGuard is sold in separate iPhone and iPod touch versions, each with a lenticular screen guard that becomes opaque when viewed off-angle. Oddly, the iPod touch version also includes a rear protector and separate top and bottom face covers, while the iPhone version is a full face protector with no proximity sensor cut-out or rear protector. ScreenGuard is a different offering for the iPhone, sold in anti-glare and crystal clear versions, each consisting solely of a full face protector. SkinGuard is sold for the iPod touch, classic, and nano, each including a rear protective sticker; the touch version also includes an anti-glare or crystal face protector, while the iPod classic and nano ones have separate screen and Click Wheel guards. Each comes with a cleaning cloth.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
