Want to increase productivity and decrease fatigue both mentally and physically? KeyKey is an educational app that makes light work of learning to touch type. The app delivers its course in practical bite-size lessons to help you hone your typing skills. Whether you fancy a challenge or just want to perfect the basics, you can pick the lesson level that suits you. KeyKey lets you learn at your own pace, so you can practice as much or as little as you want.
// Practice with real words
Unlike other typing courses, KeyKey generates real words for you to type in your native language. This means no more typing nonsense that you won’t use in real life. By working with actual phrases, you can start implementing your new skills straight away and, ultimately, build letter combinations into your muscle memory, so they come naturally to you.
// Stop making typos
Even if you’ve picked up some bad typing habits along the way, KeyKey Typing Tutor’s accuracy features help you identify what you need to focus on improving. The app counts your typos and shows you which letters you find most challenging, so you can work them out in your practice. By preventing you from unlocking new levels until you hit perfection, KeyKey sets you up to be precise and efficient.
// Compare your stats
Not only does KeyKey tells you your typo, accuracy, and speed stats, the app also shows how you did compared to your last session. To help with your progression, KeyKey adjusts the word difficulty to suit your level — should your stats perform negatively, words become less difficult. Want to up the ante? Ask to include capital letters, numbers, and punctuation.
// Track your progress
No matter how many languages or keyboards you’re learning, you can see just how much you have improved with KeyKey Typing Tutor’s Progress Tracker. It shows you the results from every lesson and visualizes your progress over time. Statistics will help you to monitor speed records and errors made. Why not challenge yourself in typing practice to see if you can earn three stars for each lesson?
// Get hints from a virtual keyboard
A picture tells a thousand words, but a virtual keyboard tells many more! KeyKey uses such keyboard to give you a helping hand in improving your button-bashing skills. The app outlines your finger placement, so you can ensure you have the correct technique. It also shows key hints that guide you to the right key without having to look down at the real keyboard.
// Learn in your native language
Having analyzed thousands of books and articles, KeyKey Typing Tutor’s language algorithm is as useful and life-like as possible. The app supports more than just the QWERTY keyboard and knows many popular languages: French, Italian, Greek, and more. It also helps those who want to learn alternative layouts, like COLEMAK or DVORAK.

Ratings and Reviews
Crashes, no timer, but useful
M1 mac, app will lock up for a short time when trying to shut the app down. There is a place to tell the app how long you would like to practice per day, but no timer option that I can find. Other than that, I can practice using capitols and the number keys. I use this app every day.
❤️ Almost Everything I Wanted! ❤️
I bought the app initially a while back thinking to improve my typing speed and make less errors. I got exactly what I came for, and then more. Later obviously I imagined new things I wanted...which I think they're working on putting in. WELL WORTH the price of admission.
I saw a review from another user who learned DVORAK with KeyKey. That is SO awesome. I actually switched to DVORAK long ago without it, and wish I had it to learn with. DVORAK is so fantastic - it has relieved the pain from carpel tunnel or RSI ...whatever it was which was caused by typing so much with QWERTY. It's great that KeyKey supports the DVORAK layout!
Some reviews say there's no statistics or that it's "calling home" to report stats online, which are completely untrue statements. I hope Apple removes that false information. It only does offline stats and saves it privately and securely in your own iCloud account for syncronizing and backup. The developer has no access to it.
Now the only things I am hoping for are custom text to practice with, and a mode to practice words which have common typos (based on my own stats).
This app is great and while I have not used it a ton, I do enjoy its slick interface and design, and the straightforward functionality. In fact I would vote it for an Apple Design award!
Impresive app, even more impressive developers.
I purchased this app over a year a go. It was great when I purchased it & since then its gotten better and better. I feel like this is a model development team. They consistently release meaningful updates and have greatly improved its UI and functionality. I have yet to be asked to repurchase, or subscribe even though the product I initially paid for has been improved dramatically. It seems rare these days to have that experience. Its obvious these developers care about their product and the people that use it. I recomend it to anyone whos interested in expanding their typing skills.
