• Animal Typing is a simple and funny way to learn touch typing for all ages.
In Animal Typing, the animal you get depends on your typing skills. The faster you type, the faster is your animal (snail, rabbit, horse, etc.). However, be careful, Animal Typing also greatly rewards your accuracy. So, avoid the typos and get the cheetah!
• Use the virtual keyboard or a Bluetooth keyboard.
** A hardware Bluetooth keyboard is recommended. **
• Animated fingers showing the proper typing technique.
• Keyboard layouts: Qwerty (US, UK), Dvorak, Colemak, Qwertz (German), Azerty (French).
(The Dvorak or Colemak layout should be set in iOS settings and are only available with a Bluetooth keyboard.)
• Possibility to customize the finger typing zones.
• Local user login system to switch between multiple users.
I want to thank the translators Mr Oscar Céspedes, Ms Lingnan Wang, Ms Kwon Nam Soo, and Ms Masako Nagano for the realization of the Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Japanese lessons respectively.
I want to thank Ms Gaylene Sutton for her suggestion and advices in the preparation of the "Kids Lessons" set.
I also want to thank the freesound.org community for the sound effects.

Ratings and Reviews
Good learn to app type for kids
This app is exactly what I was looking for. My only reason for four stars instead of five stars was to say... I have four kids.... it only has a single user setting. So it can't keep track of more than one users progress. Thankfully we do have multiple IPADS (though only a single keyboard that has to be annoyingly re synced to each IPAD each time.)
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the review. In Animal Typing you can create up to 8 user accounts. You have to touch the user icon in the upper left corner of the main screen. When the app starts it should be the user "Default".
Great app and great customer service
My daughters love this app as the scores and animation are a great motivator. Their scores are improving. This is part of our now, at-home-schooling routine. The developer, Corentin, offers amazing response time to my question and sent me a solution within 25 minutes. Again, great app and great customer service. Test it out to convince yourself but be sure to purchase the real or full version (as opposed to the in-app purchase) if you plan to use family share (e.g., two kids with two iPads).
Not a bad little typing game
We enjoyed it. There was a glitch around lesson 25 where it wouldn’t let us go to the next lesson, (even on the paid version) but once we get past that we had fun, and got faster with our typing.
