Exactly what I was looking for.
I was just looking for a minimalist typing practice app, nothing over the top or anything, just something to help me adjust to this awful mac keyboard instead of my typical mechanical keyboard. And this app is great for it! I greatly appreciate that it has a random button.
Great minimalistic design, flawed speed calculation
I love the minimalistic but elegant design of this app. I was also specifically looking for an app that allowed me to test my typing speed on text of my choosing, which this one does.
The one unfortunate flaw I encountered, though, is that this app does not appear to calculate words per minute (WPM) using the generally accepted formula. This app counts words exactly as they appear regardless of word length. So it gives you as much credit for completing the word "the" as it does for the word "antidisestablishmentarianism". Therefore, your WPM score will be impacted directly by the length of the words in the test text you choose to use. Compare this to the generally accepted definition of a typed "word" as any 5 characters typed, resulting in the WPM formula: <# minutes> / <# of characters typed> / 5
If the developer of this app fixed the WPM formula it would definitely be 5 star!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the clear and detailed feedback. The WMP counter will be adjusted in the next update, which should be up in a week or so. ;) Additionally - clicking on counter will show characters per minute.
