Touchscreen Friendly Winter Gloves

Sunday, January 09th, 2011

For gadget lovers who live in colder climates, the question of how to use a touchscreen with freezing fingers is relevant this time of year.  Most touchscreen devices, including the iPhone, iPod Touch and Droid, require charges from the fingertips in order to work correctly.  Touch the screen with a glove covering the fingers just won’t work.    

One of the top makers of touchscreen-friendly gloves is Freehands.  Their gloves feature removable flaps for the index finger and thumb and come in fleece, cashmere or wool.  They also make touchscreen-friendly sports gloves.  Prices range from $16 to $45.

To see a complete lineup of gloves that are well-suited for touchscreens, see this Mashable review.
