Sold in separate sizes for the iPad ($20) and iPhone 4 ($13), Cygnett's OpticClear Screen Protectors are billed as anti-glare film covers for the touchscreen Apple devices, bundled in packs for easy replacement. The iPad version includes two total front protectors, while the iPhone 4 version has three front protectors and one rear protector, including holes on both sides to accommodate the new front and rear cameras. Each includes a simple screen cleaning cloth; the iPhone 4 package also includes a small card for use in applying the film. Pricing for these multi-packs is quite aggressive given earlier competitors in both the iPad and iPhone 4 film categories, however, the anti-glare protection adds a noticeable prismatic effect to the screen, turning whites into arrays of rainbow colors.


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.
