Excellent App

So thankful for the Lite version to try this out; the full version is well worth the money! My boys, 7 and 9, loved it! We started during the summer as one of their requirements (10 min/day) before gaming/play devices. They both were eager to learn and play on this app every day. I appreciate all the details from the hands on the keyboard to “try again” option when you make a mistake rather than making them feel unsuccessful and just buzzing to indicate a wrong key pressed. It charts your progress, individually (multiple users). Highly recommend this fun leanring app.

I ended up purchasing all of the leasons because my daughter thinks it is a fun game- but shes actually learning to type the correct way.
I can see her typing skills improving everytime she uses this app! It has many nice features you can turn on and off. Also have multiple “users” so each person can pick up where they left off in their lesson! Awesome work!

lots of fun!

My daughter is in third grade and is required to learn typing before the end of the year. I started her on this program and she now LOVES what she is learning. Thanks for all the fun sounds, animals, baby gestures, and positive reinforcements built into the game. the virtual keyboard also helps!
