    Well when I wrote my last post I wrote it from my Droid. I have been browsing the forum for a few minutes and I see zero smudges and its still super slick. Seems to be working good. Will report back later, we'll see how long it lasts.

    I sprayed some onto a paper towel like the bottle says and then buffed it off a minute later. Never sprayed anything on the phone itself, no need to.

    Well after a day its still working, but not as good as when I first applied it. The screen still feels kinda slick but the screen is still showing some smudges and fingerprints.

    I have been using Rain-X since the first week the DROID Came out, I Love it. Sure, it shows signs of our greasy finger prints in time. It takes longer for this to happen too. But it cleans off faster, wipe it on your shirt, a towel, any cloth. The screen is super slick too. Hasn't hurt it's functionality at all either.

    This is not the first thread this has been brought up in either here. I recommend it personally to anyone who wants to listen. I apply it biweekly. I got rid of the screen protector VZW sold me, it came off in a few days.

    Don't waste your time on Rain-X. I've used both the original formula and anti-fog and it's useless. The screen is extra smooth for about three days but that's it. Fingerprints still accumulate all over. I even bought some of the DYNAFLO nano screen protector and smudge reducer and its still the same. Smudges all over and it actually takes linger to clean as a smear appears when wiping it off even with a dual-sided microfiber oil and water removing cloth... I'm beginning to believe that unless someone develops oil free touchscreen compatible finger condoms, there's absolutely no hope of having a constantly clean screen...
