Even if you love screen protectors, you probably hate applying them. Even the best bubble-proof tempered-glass covers have to be lined up before pressing them into place, and those wasted seconds are seconds that allow dust to creep twixt screen and cover, to be petrified in place forever like a dinosaur-DNA-carrying fly in amber.
What you need is the Alin, a screen protector with a big plastic guide to line things up for you.
Somebody smart said that you can “never underestimate the stupidity of the American people”. I’d add that you can never underestimate their laziness, either. Following this logic, the Alin (for “alignment”) can’t possibly fail. It’s neat-looking plastic clip which clamps onto the iPhone 5 and adds a ridge around the edge of the front face. You then grab one of the four included “HD” screen protectors, remove the rear film and push the edge up against the template. Push the film into place and you’re done.
Easy, and the fact that the package comes with four covers goes a good way to dispelling my biggest complaint: that you’re using a whole lot of plastic just to position a tiny, thin sheet of film. This is less than environmentally friendly.
Available now for $25.
