XtremeMac's entry into the increasingly crowded iPad protective film category is Tuffshield Anti-Glare ($25), a single piece of four-layer film -- Chinese-made -- plus a black screen cleaning cloth, with nothing else in the package. As one would expect given the anti-glare branding, the film has a matte finish after application, and uses static cling to stay on the iPad. Updated November 24, 2010: XtremeMac has added a $15 version for the iPhone 4 that includes two pieces of front film, one piece of rear film, and a cleaning cloth. Updated November 29, 2010: XtremeMac subsequently added an iPod touch 4G version with three pieces of front film and a cleaning cloth, this one badged as Tuffshield Clear Gloss, at the same $15 price.


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.
