Touchphone/iPad Grease

A greasy spray to decrease friction when using touchscreen devices

How often have you found yourself wishing your fingers could glide more easily across the screen of your iPhone, iPad or other smartphone? Well now you can multi-touch with ease.

A small, pocket-portable spray can of grease, similar to anti-stick spray used in kitchens, could be your ticket to a frictionless future. Just apply liberally to the front of the device. Now the CPU will have to play catch-up with you, not vice-versa!

       How often have you asked a rhetorical question, only to be disappointed when people actually answer it?

       This stuff already exists. It is secreted by my fingers.

       French fries might work. Squash a french fry on your ipod/pad and rub it around until you get an even coating. [+]

       French Fr... dammit.

       I'd suggest a silicone lubricant spray rather than vegetable oil.

       I find that I play arcade games on my Android touchphone. Normal finger grease actually slows me down. So, a liberal coating of pizza grease helps my gameplay considerably. I'll have to stop doing it when my phone is no longer under warranty though!
