Can anyone suggest a good screen cleaning solution that will removing smudges, oil (from skin) to give the display a clean without the residue?
I also do not like screen protectors - takes away from the glass display and makes it look dull IMO.

DO not use rubbing Alcohol, it degrades the coating on the screen, use eye glass cleaner no build up and safe

I have 3 bottles of different brand of cleaners,
None of them contain Alcohol........ None
One is a screen cleaner from Staples Uh says right here Alcohol free.
My eyeglass cleaner does not contain alcohol.
Found this on the net, its not straight Rubbing Alcohol
2. Homemade Eyeglass Spray #2
In 8 ounces of water add 2 ounces of vinegar and 1 oz of rubbing alcohol.
LOL it does not matter what you have done, people do the wrong thing for years does not make it right. I object to the high concentration of Alcohol thats the main point.

Clean the iPad screen
Cleaning the iPad screen
The proper way to clean the iPad display is to use nothing but a soft damp cloth:
* Turn off the iPad and disconnect it from any accessories, cables, or docks
* Using a very soft and slightly damp cloth, gently wipe the iPad screen. Be sure to not allow moisture to get into the openings of the iPad
* Repeat until the iPad screen is clean again
Can I clean the iPad screen with Windex?
No, for the love of Apple please do NOT use Windex or window cleaners! This includes rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, and the like. The chemicals in window cleaners and these products can damage the oleophobic screen coating and actually make the iPad screen less responsive to touch over time. Not worth it, do not use chemical cleaners!
How to Clean an iPhone | Cleaning Guides
# NEVER use any type of commercial or chemical cleaners on your iPhone—not even plain soap! The only thing you should dampen your cleaning cloth with is PLAIN WATER.
# Again, be very careful not to saturate your iPhone with water—the cleaning cloth should barely be damp—or you will damage your iPhone.

How to clean iPhone screen
Lastly right from the Iphone4 Manual from Apple
Keeping the Outside of iPhone Clean Clean iPhone immediately if it
comes into contact with any contaminants that may cause stains, such as
ink, dyes, makeup, dirt, food, oils, and lotions. To clean iPhone, unplug all
cables and turn off iPhone (press and hold the Sleep/Wake button, and
then slide the onscreen slider). Then use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free
cloth. Avoid getting moisture in openings. Don’t use window cleaners,
household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives
to clean iPhone. The front and back glass surfaces have an oleophobic
coating. To remove fingerprints, simply wipe these surfaces with a soft,
lint-free cloth. The ability of this coating to repel oil will diminish over time
with normal usage, and rubbing the screen with an abrasive material will
further diminish its effect and may scratch the glass.
Who's Crazy again? LOL

Get a heavily rung cloth and wipe it off, or maybe go to a local phone store and ask for proper cleaning spray.
