On receiving the gloves I immediately tried them on and ran through a few disciplines on my ipad with them - normal stuff - reading e-mail- and going through facebook messages etc. The gloves worked perfectly on the i pad screen.
A couple of days later I decided that it was time to do some urgent and quite drastic tree surgery on the huge sycamore tree at the bottom of the garden - I donned the nearest pair of gloves I could find and spent the day up and down the tree cutting off branches with a handsaw and dragging the branches away into my car and off to the local recycling centre - three trips in a 7 seater in all.
I was in the tree most of the day grabbing branches,sawing through branches and ripping down Ivy - I put the gloves on because of the Ivy - last time I attempted this job I ended up with a rash on my hands and arms.
It wasn't until the end of the day that I realised that I had been wearing my Touch Tip Gloves for Capacitive Screenswhilst performing my rugged acts of tree surgery.
With some reservations I put the gloves back on and reached for the i pad ...... and I can report that the finger tips on the gloves still worked perfectly on the screen ....
So for any tree surgeons out there who may want to check their e-mails whilst suspended from a swinging branch - these are the Gloves for You!
Unfortunately, because of my freakishly large hands (I normally have to get XL, or XXL sized gloves) the black pair I was planning to have are too small. The pink pair look to be a good size for smaller hands.
The gloves are not as soft as I thought they would be and also do not stretch as much as typical woollen gloves – contributing to the size issue.
In terms of touch screen performance, they work well with my Samsung Galaxy SII, very responsive, with no need to press hard, although accuracy might be an issue if you need to do something using small buttons, depending upon how “sausage-fingered” you are. I have not worn them outside, but they appear to be a great solution if you’re out on a winter day & you need to use your phone!
Only 4 Stars becausae if the size issue when they are listed as "adult"
useful - and warm, as mentioned.
Now I can surf the web, read my online paper and do my sudoku while in the bus without losing all feeling in my fingers.
Whoever invented these gloves - I want to meet you and give you a great bit hug :)
I LOVE my gloves xxx
They seem to work ok on his HTC phone though he has to press slightly, but didn't work at all on a Ployer Momo7 tablet we tried, even when pressing hard.
I also got similar gloves of my own but a different type from somewhere else. My one's are more sensitive and also work on the tablet.
The construction of the gloves is poor and untidy stitching. The finishing was not good. The fit of the gloves for a medium sized male hand is not bad, but can be a bit difficult to operate smart phones well as the tips did not for me fit properly with a small amount of the tip of each gloved finger folding over and making accurate selection on the screen cumbersome.
Most importantly, the tips of the gloves did not seem to have any conductive material. The pair I had seemed to be completely useless. It took about 10 swipes to get past the lockscreen - and even that was not repeatable easily. I thought it would get better but it didn't and I gave up through sheer exasperation.
Very disappointed that the product was presented as being 'very good'. Maybe I got a bad batch. But after looking around and paying more, I found much better versions of a touch glove (M&S £8, and much better, but more expensive, Northface £22).
Save your money and just use your own gloves and either take them off when using the phone/device or just wait until you get back into the warm. It would be much cheaper than wasting your money on these!
without getting your hands cold, but no good for adding contacts etc. Fingertips are just too big
As for function, well, not the warmest gloves I've ever worn. I put this down to them being so tightly stretched that the stitching lets the wind through. Used with an iphone you can control the touch screen with these.
In short they do work, but even as buy one get one free, they're over priced.
The only usable fingertips are two fingers and a thumb...so you can't do the three and four finger actions on an iPad nor the three finger actions for Windows 8 on a laptop. This is quite a failing in my opinion; why all fingers couldn't have the tips I don't know. The quality is nothing special too...not designed to fit longer fingers!
In summary they're probably fine for mobiles and iPods but don't buy if it's for tablets or multitouch laptops.
The ones I ordered from Mobile Fun were unattractive, clumsy and not very effective to use. Other items ordered from Mobile Fun have been much better.
My wife whilst watching receives a lot of emails and texts and is for ever on the touchline removing her gloves Shivering!! To respond. Not anymore, these gloves work a treat, that much so that I have forwarded the email address of Mobile fun to other impressed touchline supporters that have asked about them
I added a note "Now you can play in the cold if you can find a hotspot
At her party she thanked me for the gloves they were just right for driving to work. Suddenly it dawned there was a bit more to these gloves than keeping hands warm
Pity that the coloured ones,which appeared on the site later were not available initialy
didnt work on my phone every time
waste of money...even at 2 for 1
They were bought as a christmas present so it's a good job I tried them myself yesterday before wrapping them as that's when I discovered they didn't work.
It would help with all products like this if it was stated in the description exactly which devices they did/didn't work with.
Hense I don't use them
Easier not to use them now my hands are cold
So defeated the object of having them in the first place
Then I see the advert for Touch Tip Gloves. Great!
They arrived the car was so covered in frost it looked like a snowmobile. My iPhone rang and I answered it. My fingers were fine only my ears got cold - I had lifted the fur flaps on my hat. Now I use my headset as well so even in the snow & ice I can use my mobile & stay warem. Thank you
Of course the cold snap has long gone, the girls might not need gloves this winter to work their phones!! Oh well....
I bought a pair of these each for me and the wife to use in our early morning dog walks. They are excellent, no need to get cold fingers answering the phone to the kids telling us they are at school ok!
We have very different hand sizes and they fit us both fine plus they are not so thick that you can't do other tasks (like opening the dog poo bags!!). Might have to get some more as the kids have started pinching them.....
Overall I probably would not have bought if I had a test drive first.
Not yet tried them in the cold so don't know how they work as gloves.
the gloves actual work fine but could do with a small hand option (for girls)
One suggestion for improvement (beyond whatever is required to make them more responsive) would be to add some rubbery/leather strips on the palms and maybe even the first finger segments so that you can get a better grip on the phones. The gloves are very slippery.
PS I've ordered more from 7 day shop, much cheaper and no postage charge, not arrived yet.
