Great for practice, and pretty fun

I type mostly in portrait mode, so this app is extremely useful in improving my technique. Once I started using this, I found myself naturally shifting my hand position to use both thumbs (interleaving my fingers).

My main suggestions would be to add a tutorial on how to hold the phone for fastest typing and use longer sentences (removing the keyboard at the top).

I Really Like It...BBUUTT...

I've had this app since the first release. During that time the app was at a fee, which I was happy to pay. However now with the new update it seems to have ads and also lacks the update of a landscape mode.


Once these changes have been corrected--then and only then--can I honestly recommend this app, so for now I have to rate it a ★★★ (three stars) and give it CNET's "BAD APPLE.. ☹

Though I am a chinese, I really think this app is so fantastic!

I got my iPod touch 3 some days ago and my typing speed is very slow. And now the app made me become fast to type the words!
