The chill is coming and with that comes outer wear of all kinds. For touch screen fanatics who like to play out in the cold, that means making a choice about whether or not to have your gloves on have your hands cold. Or not. Earlier Thomasin and I shot a quick GBM Shortcut checking out AGloves, a pair of gloves meant to use on capacitive screens.
Our friends over on Notebooks.com have done us several times better and put together a shoot out of sorts featuring a variety of gloves built for capacitive touch screen users. They look at a variety of alternatives including the FreeHands Power Stretch 5, Echo Boiled Wool Touch, FreeHands Soft Shell, ThumbDogs, and the aforementioned AGloves.
Intriguingly today I received Glove Tips which is a different approach. With Glove Tips you install tips that contain a capacitive surface onto your gloves. I’ll be trying those out and reporting this weekend.
