Several months ago, I accidentally dropped my iPad 3 on the ground as the Smart Cover I was holding detached itself from the tablet. Sadly, the screen got banged up and several inches of scratch marks were made. Thankfully Apple replaced it for free and gave me a brand new iPad – this despite not having the extended AppleCare+ warranty. Now if I had bothered putting on a worthy screen protector, the iPad’s display wouldn’t have been damaged in the first place. Since then, I’ve gone through several brands (mostly the cheap ones), though all of them left much to be desired for one reason or another. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. That’s when I decided to finally skip the junk and try out some of the “premium” screen protectors out there, like the hugely popular ZAGG invisibleSHIELDs. In particular, the invisibleSHIELD Extreme for the iPhone 5 and High Definition shield for the iPad 3/4.
Invisible Skinz, an online retailer and authorized dealer for the immensely popular Invisible Shield products, had previously sponsored our TMA contest and gave away iPhone/iPod Touch skins to 5 lucky winners.

TouchMyApps is giving away 5 invisibleShields ($24.95) for your iPhone/iPod Touch, courtesy of Invisible Skinz, an online retailer and authorized dealer for ZAGG’s patented line of popular ‘shields’. Designed to protect your mobile products with an exclusive and patented film, the invisibleShield will give your iDevice the protection it needs without adding extra bulk or weight via thick and/or heavy cases.
The invisibleSHIELD is a thin film originally created for the military to protect the leading edge of helicopter blades. What’s unique about this military-grade, patented film is how tough it is – it doesn’t scratch. What makes ZAGG’s exclusive invisibleSHIELD so strong, flexible and scratch-proof? The answer is Nano-Memory technology™. With this technology, the film curves and contours around your entire device (not just the screen), and it adheres to the device unless you want to remove it without leaving any sticky residue.
With a film that is ultra-thin at only 0.2 mm and a surface that gives users a better grip, the invisibleShield will help give you that extra peace of mind while caressing your iDevice.
