Now that winter’s here, we’re going to be fumbling between a finger-sensitive touchscreen and gloves that are incompatible with the screens. Gloves really make it hard to use the iPhone or iPad. Unless, and of course, these are touch-screen compatible ones.
It really doesn’t take much to find the perfect touchscreen glove for your iPhone/iPad. This market is actually pretty dense and super saturated with a lot of varieties. We’ve picked a few amazing, interesting ones that have good reviews from users.
They’re probably as lovely as they sound but at $20 a piece, the Classic Glove.ly touchscreen gloves are one of the best. But of course, the variety that Glove.ly offers is amazing. You can pick leather touch screen gloves too but these are going to be quite costly. Unlike most other gloves, Glove.ly doesn’t have extra things stuck to the finger tips to activate the touchscreen. It just works without all those fancy stuff.

iTap 101 claims to be a ‘one-size-fits-all’ glove. Stretch yarns make that possible while making sure touchscreen response is pretty good. It’s pretty simplistic but is designed to keep your fingers and palm warm. The best thing about the gloves is that there are no options to choose from: it’s just one single pair of glove you get for a decent $20.

Etre Fivepoint gloves
Eter’s Fivepoint gloves are one of the finest – in quality and in touchscreen compatibility. The gloves are tipped with what is named “contactwoven” fingertips. These are as good as any normal gloves can get. Again, the wool is stretchy so a medium size fits most hands. But there’s two sizes (Medium and Large) available on Amazon.

Etre Touchy gloves
For those of you willing to let loose a couple of fingers, the Touchy gloves from Etre is a perfect touch screen glove. All fingers except the thumb and the index finger are covered so your fingers are mostly warm while you get uninhibited touchscreen usability. Since the iPhone/iPad come with a lot of multiple gestures (pinch to zoom for instance), the Touchy gloves should be quite a good pair.

This one comes with the little patch that enables touchscreen responsiveness when you use your iPhone/iPad with the glove on. The conducive threads enable touch and multi-touch. Although not made of wool, the gloves have a non-slip texture that is supposed to improve the grip.

North Face E-Tip gloves
