Texting is more popular than calling in the UK

According to Ofcom, we in the UK love to tap away on our phones to communicate rather than have a good old-fashioned chin-wag as texting has overtaken traditional phone calls.

Their research has shown that last year 58% of people contacted others by SMS each day, compared with just 47% making a call daily.

Texting

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the age group responsible for this shift is 16-24 whose members can’t get enough of of text time.

Other revealing facts to come out of the study included:
– The average UK mobile user sends about 50 texts each week
– Less calls are being made than ever on mobiles and landlines
– For a first, the volume of mobile calls fell last year
– 39% of us own smartphones
– We spend an hour and a half on social networks and email through our mobile devices each week
– 11% of us now own a tablet like the iPad

All this got us thinking, it’s a good thing that Proporta makes some exquisite smartphone and tablet cases so that texting can be done with style and protection too!

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.
