Customer Reviews

Does the job well

This application met my expectations for practicing my typing. The games are the typical cheesy typing tutor games (no different than Mavis Beacon), but the practice exercises are exactly what I was looking for, the lessons are easy to access to strengthen the weak skills, and the measurements / feedback work fine. The only thing I haven’t played with yet: customized lessons for common mistakes. So far, this is a great typing tutor.

Don’t waste your money

I would be able to excuse the “my first flash project” graphics if the program didn’t crash every few minutes. About a third of the practice options don’t even work.
