A few weeks ago I purchased a new Galaxy Tab 2 to replace the book reading functions of my now defunct iPhone. I quickly became aware of the bane of fingerprints and drag marks. Perhaps I'm more of a grot than most, but I found myself cleaning the screen every half hour or so.
Now, I've used capacitive stylii in the past, and while they are great for fine work and doodling, I lose track of them, lose the cap or just wind up using my fingers for most screen tasks. I've also found that the nights are getting cooler and remembered how cold my hands would get when reading or browsing in bed.
So I searched for capacitive GLOVES. I saw a bunch of single-glove sets on ebay, but was drawn to the http://www.swypegear.com/ website. Having larger than normal hands, I eagerly ordered a pair of their Streets of New York XL Swype Gloves. Which arrived today. So far I can say they fit well, they are comfortable to use, the capacitive material is used only in the fingertips (so I can rest my palm on the screen without changing pages) and they appear to be of excellent quality. Oh, and they work as advertised!
More details as time passes.

I was hesitant to buy special gloves to use with my iPhone. After two winters of cold fingers while trying to use the navigation app making travel even more stressful I bought these. They work better than I thought they could and they keep my hands warm. I am still working on breaking the habit of taking my gloves off but each time I remember I get the fun of discovering how they work again.

Ive been wearing these for over a year now and i must say i am impressed with the overall usability of these gloves. When i ran into a small issue, they were more than willing to go out of their way to help me out. I cant recommend them enough.

I was so excited to try on my new swypegloves. They were smooth on my touchscreen and decently warm (though not meant for freezing weather). I began to take them off finger by finger then...POP! I was pulling off one finger and it ripped. I was deflated. How can fabric rip so easily? While I wouldn't have paid full price for these anyways...still a letdown.

These gloves do exactly what they are supposed to do. Touchscreens respond to you wearing these gloves the same way as your bare hands. They do pill quite a bit, so keep your hands out of the snow with these gloves!

I suppose, because of the price, I thought these would be of a higher caliber than other, similar products. Instead, I was slightly disappointed. The overall "profile" of these gloves are rather thin, so I wasn't sure how well they'd work to keep my hands warm (I have Reynaud's syndrome, a poor circulation problem, which causes my fingers to get cold much more quickly than the rest of me), though they are knitted with wool. Much to my surprise, although they are thin (as I'd already written), they ARE warm, because of the wool. They are not sturdily constructed, though, so these are great for "wear-to-work" gloves, but not for weekend things, i.e. making snowballs, hiking outside, etc. Do watch out for the area between the thumb and first finger, as there's weakness with the "joining" of the yarns. Like I said, though, as long as you aren't doing anything strenuous with them, these are great!

Are a gift for my son, he works outdoors in the weather and the wool blend does a nice job keeping his hands warm.

Bought these gloves for my sons and nephews. They all loved them. Fit well and work great.
