    Default Is your smart cover causing scratches?

    I think stuff gets on the cover while it's open, or while i'm using it as a stand and when i close it it's pressing right up against the screen.

    Either way, the microfiber picks up just about anything and when I close the iPad it's damaging the screen. They aren't deep scratches but some of them are over a few inches long and are rather annoying...

    Is anyone else noticing strange scratches popping up on your iPad using a smart cover?

    I only used the smart cover on my iPad 2 for a short period of time before returning it. It did not cause any scratches on mine during that time.

    Yeah I've noticed minor scratches that easily wipes off. Either way, I'm looking for a substitute for my smart cover.

    No scratches but it does get greasy lines across the screen. Trying to find a new case. I really liked the iPad1 case, that with magnets would be awesome!
