I just let mine cure overnight. No problem. It did take 3-4 days for all the micro bubbles and patchy cloudiness go go away. Then crystal clear. Great smooth feel. Definitely resists fingerprints better than glass IMHO. Maybe we don't need screen protectors but the fingerprint resistance is worth the price of admission to me.
Held up pretty nice to me. Top peeled off for me too from pitting it in the car dock. That is expected though. Very smooth and clear. Works for me.
Holding up very well since early Dec. and I've dropped it, stepped on it on concrete! Probably saved some of that paint job and the screen from scratching. Highly reccommend it. Also, the screen is a lot esay to use (less grease etc).
