Sweaty fingers

What do you guys do when your fingers start sweating and suddenly the touchscreen feels really tacky?

It's so frustrating for me, especially when playing something like SF4 survival mode where in latter levels my fingers are already sweaty and the opponents become harder. If I take too long a break, big chance someone calls me and all progress is gone.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

usually ill wipe em off and cool down....then come back. but (the do this in hospitals were your fingers have no oil as they are ALWAYS CLEAN!) you can rub your nose, or your hair line or somewhere (usually on the face) where you are oily, and then rub that oil into the screen sometimes helps, or exhauling on your finger too

Get a screen protector.

Why are you touching the screen in the first place? You can damage it by applying any sort of pressure to it. I doubt sweaty fingers will harm it.
