Magnets hold just as good as the Milanese, but the color is already fading after only a few weeks. My Apple Milanese did not fade after years of use. Definitely would recommend purchasing the Apple branded one over this one if you have the money, but it is quite a bit more money.
Application was simple but despite careful cleaning/prep, two faint bubbles occasionally appear, but since they're along edge, don't affect functionality. Otherwise, performs as advertised.
Using the Apple Pencil 2nd gen with this gives far more control and a more traditional writing feel. It definitely makes sketching and even taking notes anymore natural experience. However, finger sensitivity does go down a bit. You’ll have to be more intentional as light touches will no longer be recognized as easily. It also completely removes screen glare which is awesome, but it does make greasy smudges more difficult to clean off, and you can still see smudges in the textured surface.
But the negatives are only mildly annoying. The benefits far out way anything negative.
Lengthy product title....Yes, I ordered this screen protector based on Cult of Mac's product description that it's like writing on paper. Bottom line...it's a far better screen protector that aids "writing" with an Apple Pencil (I have the 1st gen version), greatly reduces finger prints (always good) when using the Apple Pencil, input is immediate and precise. I'm a lefty and this screen protector allows minimal effort when writing electronically. I'm not an artist so I cannot rate how this screen protector handles an artist's desires. I will say my primitive artwork (cups, objects, etc.) drawn with my iPencil are spot on and represent my vision for my coffee cups, primitive as they may be,.
Overall, I have no buyer's regrets for this purchase. However, some caveats...the application instructions are verrry sparse (A and B on two tabs, that's it). Once on, the tactile sensation is different...it has a "pebbly" like feel when you run your finger over the screen protectors surface. It's a strange sensation that always surprises me, yet, its this "pebbly" surface that allows the user to work their magic, whether writing or drawing as well as keeping fingerprints to a minimum. For use on a iPad, it works wonderfully and will capture your vision. However, this screen protector will never feel the same as writing with a fountain pen on quality paper.
Again, no buyer's remorse...just my thoughts on a quality product that works well on an iPad.
Looks good, quality feels good as well.
