Typist is one of the most popular and reliable typing tutors in App Store.
With a little practice every day, you can feel your touch typing improve.
Typist is a typing tutor, which helps you in learning touch typing.
If you have never taken any lessons in typing before, please be patient.
Typing is not difficult but it does take a lot of practice. Avoid the tendency to look down at your fingers while typing. This is a very bad habit and is hard to break later. It may be slower when you first start. But, touch typing is far faster once you get the hang of it.
Course T is recommended to beginners. If you have experience in typing, Course Q or S may be good for you.
This version (3.3.1) newly provides Polish interface and lessons (for Polish programmer keyboard).
Russian interface is also available.

Ratings and Reviews
if it ain't broke don't fix it
I'm almost through the first course and I've actually learned how to type without looking! Abit, very slowly for now, I'm sure I'll improve with practice and muscle memory development. I am pretty sure this is a software port from the 80's, so some of the tech terminology and subject mater in the sample text is dated and makes me feel like I'm 5 practicing my math on an old TI-88 computer we had when I was a kid. Make life easier for yourself and get a keyboard with tall, old school keycaps. modern flat membrane boards are really easy to get lost in when you start out and can result in the user getting frustrated and giving up.
Fast, easy and not too frustrating method to learn typing
I’m embarrassed to admit that I was still hunting and pecking at the keyboard at the age of 26. I was determined to become a touch typist and went searching through the App Store to find something that could quickly help me learn how. Most of the apps are geared toward children and rightfully so, but I wanted something that could be used by an adult, was simple, straight-forward and extensive. Fortunately I found Typist. This app takes you from the very beginning and helps you learn all the keys, including the upper row of number keys. Within three days of using it, I was touch typing (albeit slowly) and within a week, I had become a permanent touch typist. The nice thing about the app is that it caters to typists of all age and experience level and helps you to both improve your accuracy and speed with a number of different, quick and easy lessons. Plus the price can’t be beat.
Bottom line: If you’re looking to finally learn touch typing or would like to improve your typing speed, I would highly recommend downloading and using this app.
Wow, I love it!
As a watch-the-keyboard beginning-level typist, I was even willing to pay money for a training program. Many years ago, I enjoyed Mavis Beacon encouraging me; sadly, recent reviews also enjoyed the OLDER versions and didn’t like the newer ones as much. Plus the least expensive was $20, as a download.
This one is GREAT!
I also benefited greatly from a sugggestion from Whizbang Trainer to put a box over the keyboard so I can’t see my hands. Wow, that did the trick.
Those people moaning about how boring typing fff jj ff jjj is aren’t having as much trouble with it as I am, typing truly blindly. It’s using brain-parts I can almost hear doddering around, bumbling into one another, trying to wake up. It’s definitely a case of doing 3 impossible things before breakfast, and kind of fun, once my head stops feeling strange. Maybe the moaners need a keyboard box.
Many thanks to both Whizbang Trainer and the programmers of this stellar App!!
