I’ve had my iPad Pro for a while now. It is still my favorite device by far. It’s versatile and capable especially with the addition of a keyboard and Apple Pencil. When I first saw the release of the Paperlike screen protector, I knew it would be game-changing. I’ve had this protector on for two weeks now and am blown away by how much I love it.

I will admit at first I was skeptical. However, after five minutes of getting used to it, I can’t imagine using my beloved iPad Pro without Paperlike. The official Paperlike website promotes four main ways that their screen protector improves the iPad experience; draw, write, enjoy, and magic.


Though I don’t sketch a ton, I do enjoy writing on my iPad and edit videos using LumaFusion with the Apple Pencil. The Paperlike boasts added resistance and friction. It has helped increase my accuracy dramatically. While writing notes, filling out PDFs, signing documents, or marking up word documents, I feel as though I’m writing on actual paper. I love it so much that I don’t know if I will ever be able to take my Paperlike screen protector off. I love the extra control too much.


I read on the Paperlike website that this screen protector enhanced the viewing experience. I didn’t think that was possible. I was happily proved wrong. The matte finish of the Paperlike screen protector has reduced nearly all of the glare off my iPad Pro. 


Paperlike has built-in Nanodots, allowing the display light to shine through and around, somehow making it easier to see my screen. It’s also these Nanodots that help make my Apple Pencil vibrate while drawing on my screen.

Just when I began to think that I had the perfect iPad Pro Setup, I found Paperlike, and I could not be happier with the results. As a huge loyalist to companies I find and enjoy, Paperlike just gained another lifelong customer.
