Ratings and Reviews
Very good Application
After trying many applications, this application appears to be the best so far. As far as I’ m concern. However, It will be greater application if the developer add “ The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”. This contains all the alphabets on the keyboard and as the user practices it often it will enhance his speed on the keyboard.
I think this will also make this application greater and more attractive to many users and will draw many new users to its. This feature can be seperate like the others and be a standalone feature that the users can repeat over and over to get more familiar to the locations of the keys.
Thank you for a great application like this and hope the feature request will be added to it.
Developer Response ,
You can add this sentence to one of the existing dictionaries. I think it would make sense to add a separate "Pangrams" category which would contain more sentences like that.
Better than most
This is a very good app for the simplicity that it offers.
One of the biggest drawbacks for me, is a lack of focus on certain areas of the keyboard. For instance, I would enjoy exercises that soley focused on numbers and special characters. Instead the the typing difficulty just builds on itself.
Love it so far
Love the application so far.
1) typing sound. Could you give a couple of options for the typing sound? The one you got is a bit harsh for me. Would like to have maybe a classic typewriter sound or something softer as an option, and possibly volume control.
2) I couldn’t find it but is there a way to go straight to a specific lesson for certain characters? I see that I can change the level and it includes more characters but what if I want to practice mainly typical certain characters.
Thanks so much for the great work.
