Screen Protector for iPad Air, is it necessary?
I've just gotten an iPad Air to use for taking notes in my classes. I will be using Notability to annotate pdf notes, therefore I had to buy a stylus to get a better handwriting. I bought the Adonit Jot Pro from the store. However, I was told by the staff that the stylus does not respond well to screen protectors, so I decided not to get one.
My question is: Is it safe enough to use the ipad without screen protector?
I'm also using the Apple Smart Case.

If you are someone who is not clumsy with their products then I would say it's not necessary. I don't use screen protectors on any of my devices and have never broken my screens. If you feel like you really need to have a screen protector then I'm sure there are protectors out there that work with styluses.

I think i'm gonna go without a screen protector on iPad Mini with Retina Display for about a week and see how it goes. I know this is very subjective and I have read both sides. While it feels nice to the touch without the screen protector but on the other hand, I'm always afraid it will get scratched. :/

Well looks like going without a screen protector for me didn't last one day. So I decided to give the screen protector another chance. And I said to my self, this will be the last time and if all else fails, I'm going to go without a screen protector as a last resort. I purchased a Zagg Glass and have successfully installed on my ipad mini retina without any issue and perfectly aligned.
For what it's worth, I'd rather protect my device than having scratches, since I HATE having scratches on my device. Maybe I'm just paranoid not having a screen protector.

I have one on and a Smart Cover and use styluses some. The cover and protector definitely help, I dropped it once with it flipping out of my hand, the cover took most of the impact and then slid off off it so the screen protector protected it after that. In the end I much rather prefer using a keyboard with it or just typing with the iPad verticle kind of like texting. Plus it's much easier on the air than previous iPad models.
