Smartphone Gloves: The Best Winter Accessory

Smartphone gloves have certainly become the must-have item this winter, and with a lot of our year taken up by weather that makes you say “brrrrr”, iPhone gloves are certainly a worthy investment for anyone with a touchscreen device. Find out more about the best uses and tips on using your touchscreen gloves with this handy guide from Proporta.

iPhone Gloves
What are Smartphone Gloves?
In essence, they are a regular pair of gloves to keep your hands toasty in the freezing weather but with a very handy twist. If you’ve ever tried to use your touch screen device with a pair of gloves on, you’ll know that it is useless as it just doesn’t work. However, thanks to a nifty bit of modern technology you can now use all your tablets, phones and MP3 players with your iPhone gloves on. Touchscreen gloves allow you to swipe away on your device’s screen as if you aren’t wearing gloves at all.

Times Smartphone Gloves are Needed
There are plenty of times and situations that an accessory like this can come in handy.
– Avoid dropping your phone as you struggle to remove your normal gloves
– If you work outdoors in all weathers and need to make lots of calls
– Texting with an Apple device whilst on the go in the cold is made much more comfortable using iPhone gloves

Touchscreen Gloves Key Features
– Extra warm and unisex
– One size fits all
– Can be used with all capacitive touch screen devices including iPhone 4 / 4S, iPad / iPad 2, BlackBerry Bold, HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy S2.

Proporta announces the Quillit Stylus Pen for all Touch Screen Devices…

Thursday 17th March 2011, Brighton, England:

Today, gadget and mobile accessory manufacturer, Proporta, has launched the Quillit Stylus Pen. Unique to Proporta, the Quillit is a multi-function stylus for all touch screen devices as it incorporates a retractable brush stylus (for capacitive screens), a nib stylus (for resistive screens) and a high quality pen.

Quillit Stylus Pen £24.95
Lynnette Prigmore, Head of Product at Proporta said: “The retractable design means that not only do you get three functions in one compact setting, but also the brush stylus in the Quillit will last longer than other types we’ve seen, which can fray and become ineffective over time.” The Quillit is incredibly practical, as it works with both resistive and capacitive touch screens by switching between brush and nib stylus heads. This makes it ideal for operating tablet PCs and Smartphones, and in addition it is also a beautifully styled writing instrument with a nice heavy-weight feel and deluxe finish.
