Ratings and Reviews
The design of this app is very thorough and well thought out. My kids enjoy learning to type using this app. It keeps the challenges fun and motivational. I look forward to trying out the other apps by Corentin.
I highly recommend!
This is a great app. I like how it shoes the finger placement and it’s fun! Well worth the money.
Very effective app
I searched and tried several apps to learn how to touch type with a physical keyboard and settled on this one. It worked out great and after 3 weeks of going through the tutorial in my spare time, I've learned how to type fairly accurately without looking at the keys at about 50 wpm. If I can give one point of criticism, I'd recommend they tone down the graphics and animations as it can be slightly distracting while learning. Still, I give it 5 stars because it does the job well and nothing out there that I tried comes close.
