How to Use a Smartphone with Gloves

If you live in a part of the world where it gets colder certain times of the year, you probably are the habit of wearing gloves. However, wearing gloves can have an effect on the use of your Smartphone. If you want to use your Smartphone without having to take your gloves off every time you use it, here are a few ways that you can make it happen.

Step 1. Purchase special gloves. There are gloves on the market with special fingertips which allow you to use your Smartphone’s touch screen as if you were using your fingers.
Step 2. Use a fastener. You can take a nickel-plated or brass fastener – the kind that snaps together – and press it into the fingertip of a glove. This will allow you to navigate your Smartphone’s touchscreen without taking the glove off.
Step 3. Use conductive thread. Conductive thread does exist. You take and sew a few stitches of it into the fingertips of any glove. The conductive thread will act just like the technology that in the special gloves that you can buy.
Step 4. Thermal compound. Another easy method requires the use of thermal compound, which you can purchase at most computer stores. You rub the compound onto the fingertips of the glove to allow the gloves to work on your touch screen. It works best if your gloves are thinner. The compound will eventually wear off, and you will have to apply it again.

Each of the above methods will allow anyone to operate their Smartphone without having to take off their gloves. If you live in a colder climate, you might want to consider one.
