Hey Sports Parents — We’ve Solved Your Smartphone Glare Problem

Sports parents are busy parents. Between soccer practice and Little League games, you feel like you spend all your free time chauffeuring your kids from one activity to the next. As much as you love watching your children learn new skills and interact with their teammates, baseball practice and soccer games can eat away at your productivity.

Even worse is that while sitting out in the glare of the sun, if you can’t use your Smartphone to return emails, make appointments or play a round of Temple Run, you’ll probably be forced to make small talk with the other sports parents. You might even find yourself roped into yet another book club or sales party.

Fortunately, if you have a NuShield DayVue screen protector with anti-reflective technology on your phone, you’ll be able to use your Smartphone even on sunny days at the field, making tedious practices a heck of a lot more bearable.

The Stress-Free Way to Read Outside on Your Tablet

So many books, so little time!

Reading outdoors, whether it’s at the beach, the pool, or in your backyard, is a relaxing way to spend a warm spring or summer day. E-readers and tablets have made reading on the go a lot more convenient, packing your entire library into a single light-weight device. Now you can easily travel to the beach or on vacation without packing heavy, cumbersome books.

However, these devices often make reading outside difficult, as the sunlight washes out the display. With a NuShield DayVue screen protector, you can easily read outside even on the sunniest of days with no screen glare.

And yet while long fingernails can come in handy for scratching an itch or opening a package, they can also severely damage your Smartphone or tablet.

Is Your GPS Navigation System Hard to See in the Sunlight?

It’s the epitome of the American car-lover’s dream: driving down the open highway, sun shining, and the convertible top down. As your hair blows in the breeze, you hear the robotic voice of your GPS navigation system telling you that your exit is coming up. But as you glance at the screen, you realize you can’t see the display in the glare of the sun.

Gone are the days of struggling with enormous paper maps, or printing out pages of MapQuest directions. In recent years, GPS navigation devices have become the standard method of finding your way to a new destination.

GPS devices can come installed in the dash of your car or purchased after-market. With these systems, you can receive both audio and visual cues, effectively ensuring that you never get lost again.

LCD screens, however, are not always clearly visible in sunlight. Glare can wash out the screen, making graphics hard to see. This is true in every car (especially those with a sunroof), and worse in an open-topped convertible where there is no way to escape the bright light of the sun. Polarized sunglasses make the screen even less visible.

It’s certainly worth pointing out that distracted driving, such as squinting at and adjusting your GPS screen, puts you at a three times higher risk of getting in an accident. Does that mean you need to sacrifice your open-topped drive for safety’s sake?
