Could use a few tweaks

I really love this app for a few reasons. I have always found great benefit in keeping up with my typed WPM count, in jobs and school settings. Recentky I noticed that I find typing very theraputic as well. This app allows me to type my tiny heart away getting that minute of "self-care" when I don't know what else to type. It's the pressing and sounds for me. The only thing I wish were differnet about this app is that it allowed you to scroll down on a long passage. I like type for as long as possible when not practicing how fast I can type and my accuracy. It won't let me scroll so I have to switch passages when coming to the bottom of the app screen.

Great concept, however.....

I really like the design and simplicity of this app, however.... I would really like it to words per min rather then characters per minute and perhaps someone on the design team could add some way to review speed & accuracy over time so you can go back and review if you're improving or not.

I absolutely love the copy & past concept. It's really neat I can find an interesting article about something new and then type it as I read it and learn whilst trying to improve my typing.

But as always there is room for improvement.

Perfect practice for typing, plus nice study tool

I love this app. Typing practice has never been better. You can input any material you want to practice typing with, so you could use anything you are studying and get a two for one level up. Only problem I have with this is I cannot choose Japanese, Korean, Chinese, or any other language besides English to practice typing with. I wish there was a way to change language input so the program worked with the various lanuage keyboards on the Mac.

Developer Response ,

It's great to hear that you are finding the app useful. :)
Technically it should be possible to type in Korean, Pinyin, etc.
You can add those keyboards in 
"System Preferences" -> "Keyboard" -> "Input Sources" -> "+".
In the app clicking on
"View" -> "Show word Input" 
would show suggestions, required for typing in theses languages.
