Type away in this safe, fun environment for kids of all ages and see the letters show up nice and BIG!

Kids love typing away on the laptop just like their parents, which is so darned cute if it didn't happen while tweeting, updating Facebook, or sending important work emails!

That's why we wrote "Big Typer," the simple and fun app that helps children learn letters, spelling, reading and writing. This safe and fun learning environment lets them press any key and see what characters come up on the screen. Easy to use and lots of fun.

Big Typer can also MAKE YOUR COMPUTER TALK! Just press the "Speak" button and Big Typer will read aloud what's been typed in. It's amazing!

Parents can type along with their kids or just sit back and see what they create -- knowing that it won't be an embarrassing update on Facebook!

Features great sounds and an easy to use interface that makes learning to type fun, safe and easy.

What's New in Version 1.1

* Fixes problem with some laptops showing blank screen instead of program window
* Starts cursor out in typing window so no click is required
* Faster to respond to key presses

Customer Reviews


I've Never met an app with no way of adjusting preferences. There's no way of changing font size, font or voice. A real shame as a I need something a lot more flexible than this - as does my little lad and I'm a tad peeved that this simple app is well - SO simple! That said - I love the idea itself but please bring it into the 21st century.
