So does it work? After a thorough perusal of online reviews and comments, including a good comment thread on Amazon, I'm going to give this a qualified yes, with at least one important caveat.
In order for the stuff to work, it almost certainly needs to completely saturate the fabric from the surface of the glove all the way through to the inside in order to create a connection between your finger and the touchscreen. Thinner, around-town gloves? No problem. But when it comes to thicker gloves that feature a layer of synthetic insulation (nylon ski gloves, for example) or gloves that feature a separate liner, AnyGlove appears to be much less reliable. (To help avoid this, one commenter suggests treating both the outside and inside of the glove.)
So my takeaway? Overall, a decent option for the lightweight pairs of gloves I use in my daily winter life, but not something I'd use on my heavier winter handwear.
A bottle of AnyGlove runs $14.95 and is available in formulations for both synthetic and leather gloves. Per the product specs, each 15ml bottle can treat up to five pairs of gloves.
