  • Best Skins Ever Screen Protectors: Matte vs. Glossy

    When choosing one of our screen protectors for your personal electronics it's best to understand the benefits and trade-offs of our original glossy film and our recently added matte film.  Both are a great options but this brief pictorial guide will help you decide which is the best selection for your situation.

    Glossy:  This was the film that made us famous.  The original glossy film is crystal clear and highly smudge resistant in it's own right.  If unobstructed screen clarity is your highest objective when choosing screen protection the original glossy film is your best choice.

    Matte:  Pronounced "mat", describes the term as "having a dull or lusterless surface".  This low shine alternative has a unique look and nearly eliminates smudges and screen glare.  The trade off, however, is a reduction of the sharpness of the screen.  While some users find this to be a worth-while sacrifice and may barely notice the loss of clarity, others find the effect to be too distracting.  This effect also seems to be more dramatic on devices where the physical distance between the glass and the screen pixels is greater.

    Below are some excellent side by side examples of the matte and glossy film on the screen of an iPhone 5S.  The photos haven't been doctored and we feel fairly represent the look of both film options on most devices.  On the close up shots, you will notice that you can clearly see the pixels under the glossy film but they look somewhat fuzzy under the matte film.

  • November Apple Releases 2013: iPad Air and iPad Mini With Retina Display

    At the live media event in San Francisco on October 22, 2013, Apple announced the upcoming release of the iPad Air, the fifth generation of the popular tablet. Although the iPad Air is the iPad 5, the number refers only to its generation as it pertains to upgrades to the model. Apple also announced that it would replace the iPad 4, but the full-size version of the device, the iPad 2, will still be available.

    The newest tablet was released on Friday, November 1st, in time to generate enough buzz to drive sales up over the Christmas holiday season.

    What's New in the iPad Air?


    The new iPad Air features a 9.7-inch display, a sleek, thin design, an updated processor chip, and improved pixel quality on both the front and rear cameras. It is 20% thinner than the older iPad 4, and weighs only 1lb.

    The 64-bit processor will have an A7 chip, the same chip that Apple put in the iPhone 5. There will be Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + cellular versions available, and the cellular versions will be multi-LTE band reception.

    Benefits from Previous iPad Versions

    Apple is boasting that by replacing the old processor with the new one, the tablet will be 8x faster than the first model. The graphics processor will be 72x faster than the original. The 32-watt rechargeable lithium battery should power the device for 10 hours. The new iPad Air is 7.5 mm thick, 240 mm high, and 169 mm wide, and the 1lb weight makes it the lightest tablet on the market.

    As with previous iPad models, several versions will be sold, with different hard drive capacities. The cheapest model is a 16 GB, followed by 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB versions.

    iPad Mini With Retina Display

    In another big announcement, Apple revealed that a new version of the iPad Mini with Retina Display would be available by the end of November. The new, updated version of the iPad Mini is a 7.9-inch device with screen resolution of 2,048 x 1536. It will contain the same 64-bit A7 processor used in the iPad Air, and a M7 motion coprocessor. Another difference is that the retina display results in a heavier device than the previous version. Like the iPad Air, the new mini will come in 16 GB to 120 GB versions with both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+ cell capability.
