I'll revive this thread.
I just bought some REAX Castor gloves and the touchscreen compatibility is just awesome. They were the only short-cuff glove I found that seemed to have all the armor I wanted in a glove and have touchscreen compatibility. Not all of the glove is compatible, though... it seems like it has to be the bottom part of the fingertips rather than the actual tip of the finger, if that makes sense.
My advice? Get some gloves with compatibility built-in. Always test on your phone to ensure it works, though.
