Apple iPad Finger Prints Wiped Out by i-Screen-Wipe Review

Posted on Dec 5 2010 - 11:25pm by Richard Sharp

The iPad is one of the most coveted gadgets of the year with many people adding it to the top of their Christmas lists. The iPad has been critically acclaimed by nearly every reviewer that has touched it but the one gripe that reviewers and owners alike have is grubby finger prints covering the otherwise beautiful screen.

The problem can be somewhat remedied with a decent screen cover, that did wonders for me and my iPad but didn’t solve the problem completely. Recently we were sent a new product to test called the ‘i-Screen-Wipe’, a micro-fibre cloth that sits snugly inside most iPad cases – could this be the answer to my iPad’s finger print problem?

[singlepic id=55 w=320 h=240 float=left]Think of the i-ScreenWipe as a large high end glasses cleaner that sits atop your iPad, it works well with folio cases as it sits inside the cover, it acts as a barrier when over the screen can be flapped back over to wipe away smudges and finger prints – this saves using your sleeve of your jumper and does a better job to boot.

I probably wouldn’t use it with a skin type case because it would flap around all over the place. However, as mentioned above it’s designed for a portfolio style case and in this format it doesn’t dissapoint.

When we spoke with Phil Robinson, owner of, he said “I loved my iPad but hated the finger marks. Having searched the web and finding no meaningful solutions, I got busy and designed one myself, using my experience in producing products for camera lenses to create the perfect solution”.

    Big snag – it's only sold by Amazon. I have cancelled my account following their close of Wikileaks.

    Boycotts have a price it seems
