A simple and carefully crafted application to help you learn and
master typing with ten fingers.
Typing with all ten fingers without looking at the keyboard, or
touch-typing, is important not only to type fast, but also to remove
an additional step between your thought process and the text you work
This application teaches touch-typing. It shows you which finger needs
to go to which key and rehearses the finger movements from one of its
character to the other. This way it covers more and more keys of the
keyboard with each lesson, until you know all of it.
Your training and progress is made visible by showing line charts for
your typing accuracy and speed. It is made even more detailed and
accessible by creating keyboard heatmaps of main indicator figures
like error rate, speed and keystroke.
This version supports U.S., German, British, Canadian English, and Australian keyboard layout.
Bugfix for German and Canadian keyboard layouts, where one key wasn't showing as next character.
Ratings and Reviews
Great app for learning to type fast
After trying a ton of typing apps I finally found the one that is working great for me. It has a built in mentronome (awesome feature), a great clean UI, and I’m very happy that it quizzes parenthesis, odd characters, and the like. Great app!
Good, But Not Great
PROS: Beautiful interface, right drawer extends from the main interface to display all the lessons, skip ahead or backward lessons.
CONS: Too expensive. Typos are highlighted in annoying red, no ability to continue typing unless you delete your mistakes. In typing school, they tell you to keep on typing without using the delete key. This way, you gauge your errors and steadily improve naturally over time. WPM is not calculated correctly. I'm getting 40 WPM. In contrast, I'm getting 60 WPM using Mavis Beacon and Type Fu, both available on the Mac AppStore. Please fix the error issue and the WPM issue.
OVERALL: Good software to help you become a better typist. User-friendly interface. A few improvements can be made.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
