Agloves – Texting Gloves
Fashion and function collide with these specialized texting gloves built by the company AGLOVES. Agloves knows that texting in the cold can be a pain in the butt.

Affordable and efficient, Agloves works with any touch screen device and we find that they are completely capable with even the most touchy of smart phone. Unisex, hand knitted, and timeless in style — these gloves can change your text game completely.
The Brolly Texting Umbrella
You might have gotten the idea from Agloves, but now you’ll really know how big of a problem the weather can be when it comes time to do things on your phone. Whether it is rain, snow, sleet, or even just a sun glare the weather outside can make reading your phone display, and using it, a pretty tough situation. Fortunately Brolly leaped in to save the day with their texting umbrella. This umbrella is, well, it isn’t exactly the height of outdoor fashion but it will keep your screen weather free and easy to see. Merely attach it to your case and get to work texting away. Once you get used to the broad coverage and clean screen it will be hard to leave it at home. Of course, you’ll still want to. I mean, it’s kind of weird to carry an umbrella around everywhere when it isn’t raining.
The eLago Stylus
Older tech fans may remember the days before true touch screen was in action. We had to use our Blackberry’s and Palm Pilots that relied on stylus pens to do their job. Then we complained long enough and got the innovative touch screen from Apple and now we’re complaining again, if you can believe it, because we want to use our old stylus’s again! Enter eLago, a specialized stylus that can clip right onto your iPhone. This stylus is specially designed with a soft tip and narrow diameter in order to keep your taps on target. The stylus itself looks classy, is light weight, while staying incredibly accurate when you are clicking away at your screen. With a one year warranty and a price tag under $10 you can’t go wrong here.
iPhone Cupholder Case
One of the greatest moments of drama in our mornings comes in the form of a decision: Do I put my coffee down in order to reel off a text message? Stress the decision no longer and add this iPhone Cupholder Case to your Christmas list. Slide your iPhone into the case and marvel at the extended cupholding clip. You can set your coffee into the cup catch and then text away with two hands, reveling in your sudden multi limbed freedom. Of course the case looks silly and many people will stress about spilling their coffee, but it is the thought that counts and we love any thought that has us holding fewer items in our hands in the morning.
Life is a game, so text it. The Textminator is a coin operated Texting game that looks similar in set up to games like Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero. Instead of testing your dancing or guitar playing skills you will instead put your texting skills to the test. You can play alone or against another person in a competition of speed and accuracy. The words will either fall down the screen or get highlighted on your own colored strip. From there you use phone ‘controllers’ to text in the words as quickly as possible. The more words your type in correctly, and the faster they happen, the better your score will end up being. While a part of us thinks that it is absolutely ridiculous for their to exist a texting based arcade game, the other parts of us just wants to play.
