These installation tips will compliment the directions that come with the package...

If you are like me, then you will want absolutely no imperfections on a screen protector, and you will want it to feel great. Here are some installation tips:
1. Setting: It is *extremely crucial* that these screen covers are installed in an environment as close to dust-and-lint-free as possible. This means: totally lint and dust-free surfaces, no lint in the air (if need be, find an office or take it to a store somewhere), no flaking cotton shirt lint (!), because if you put the screen protector on and you trap even one lint between it and the screen, you will see it there and you might not know it's there until after you put it on.
2. Lighting: It is also *extremely crucial* that you have tons of light sources (e.g., a bright office) in the room, so that you can see any possible specs of lint or whatever, on the screen, during and between every step of the installation process.
3: Practice: This is a small-enough device that you can practice yourself with a few screen protectors, and at low cost. I also have an iPad but for that I had a separate screen protector installed in-store, since the surface is so much larger that the probability of even one lint landing in the way is higher. For a pocket-sized phone screen, you can do this yourself.
4: Scotch tape (optional): You may (rather, WILL) find after even super-careful application that a tiny spec of lint may still appear along an edge underneath the screen protector. There is a trick using Scotch tape to getting it out. More on this later.
The package oddly enough came with two sets of directions, and they were not the same. The basic premise between the two sets, however, was: use the supplied wet-dry wipes, and the supplied microfiber towel, and then apply the protector. These first steps clear residue off the screen. (Note: If your screen is already scratched from prior use, these will not fix it. These are just for preparing the protector.) The details of the "How to do it right" could be made even more clear, and I find this to be a common issue with screen protectors. The directions also do not say what to do with the other (perhaps helpful) objects that are in the kit, such as the dust sticker.
Follow the directions up until it tells you to apply the screen protector itself. Grab it only from the sides. There will be a sticker with an arrow, where it will tell you to peel off the sheet that protects the sticky side. Once you are convinced that the dust/lint/whatever will not get in the way, apply. Other than the potential for lint to get trapped, the actual application is not so bad - feel free to readjust the angle of the protector (but try to get it right the first time); also you may massage the screen protector if it does not lay flat after you apply it. If you see any pixel-sized dots after application, these could be either due to lint, in which case see below, or the adhesive, in which case don't worry as this goes away after a few days.
Note: The protector will appear to show pressure marks where the sticker was, on the upper left corner of your iPod. I have found that after 3 days, this fades away. Do not worry. You should be more concerned about specs of lint.
Now, if you have already applied the screen protector and, after a few minutes, hours, days of careful eyeballing, you notice that one little spec of lint/whatever got trapped along an edge, there is a remedy. You can (gently) lift the screen protector, with a fingernail, starting from the corner, until you get just enough space to slide a strip of Scotch tape (sticky side facing the adhesive of the screen protector) to where you saw the lint. With one hand, place the tape there, and with the other, bring the screen protector back to about halfway... then pull the tape out of the side of the screen protector, and the lint might just come along with it and will not ruin it. Note: If you lift the screen protector, then keep in mind that you run the risk of trapping more/new lint, so again, find a lint-free environment and excellent lighting conditions.
The feel of the screen protector is very nice. It is thin and feels scratch resistant. The full quality and color of the retina display just passes right through. (Some other screen protectors can cause color speckle patterns... which is severely distracting from viewing your own photos on your own iPod Touch.) But this screen protector will still smudges just as noticeably as the iPod touch surface itself. But you get to keep the microfiber cloth, and you can use it on the screen protector without scratching it. I recommend getting some kind of carrying case to go with your iPod touch (try them in electronic departments of local stores), and put the microfiber cloth in the case with your iPod touch.
And if all else fails, this is a 2-pack, so you can remove the first (if failed) screen protector and try it all over again.
