I generally don’t do non-software reviews, in large part because I don’t use enough of a variety of anything to make comparative judgments. When it comes to cleaning the screen of a mobile device, however, almost everyone has something they use. For me that’s typically whatever happens to be handy: my shirt or a tissue. Now I do have a screen protector, so at least I’m not rubbing these things directly against my screen.
Anyway, when I saw that Mobile Cloth was looking for people to try out and review their cloths, I figured I might as well give it a try. Certainly whatever they had to offer must be better than my “weapons” of choice. The difference, however, was incredible. A couple of swipes with the MC nano (the smaller size cloth), and the screen protector looked just like it did when I first applied it to my device. The best part is that all you need is the cloth, though they do suggest a bit of water if you have “caked on particles”. Thankfully that doesn’t usually apply to me, as I’m the only one that uses my iPod Touch.
The cloths come in two sizes: 4”x4” and 9”x9”. Obviously you can use either size cloth for any size device, though the 4×4 is a bit more portable. What I like about the smaller size is that it fits quite nicely in the bottom half of the plastic case which came with my iPod Touch and which I still use to carry my device around. Of course either size can be easily tucked away in a carrying case, and the larger size might be better for a laptop or desktop screen to clear off dust. You can easily wash and dry the cloths so that they will last for years to come.
The cloths can be bought in packs of 1, 2, 4 and 6, and with the packs of 4 or 6 you get an extra one for free. If you use your mobile device a lot or have a lot of mobile devices you use (these would even work well with camera lenses, photographers), I would definitely suggest giving a Mobile Cloth a try. They would make great Christmas gifts as well!

I apologize for lack of screen shots, but I’m not really set up for that, and all the shots I tried to take had too much glare to be useful. Check out the press section of the web site for some links with shots, or visit the “What Is Mobile Cloth” section for a decent video showing the cloths in action.
