Ratings and Reviews
Very good Application
After trying many applications, this application appears to be the best so far. As far as I’ m concern. However, It will be greater application if the developer add “ The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”. This contains all the alphabets on the keyboard and as the user practices it often it will enhance his speed on the keyboard.
I think this will also make this application greater and more attractive to many users and will draw many new users to its. This feature can be seperate like the others and be a standalone feature that the users can repeat over and over to get more familiar to the locations of the keys.
Thank you for a great application like this and hope the feature request will be added to it.
Developer Response ,
You can add this sentence to one of the existing dictionaries. I think it would make sense to add a separate "Pangrams" category which would contain more sentences like that.
I asked for a feature request few hours ago, and it got implemented and updated right awa.
Either it’s some kind of coincidence and the developers are just that awesome!
I recommed this to anyone that has to spend a lot of time on the computer and wants to become more productive.
Speed typing is the best way.
I’d like a way to memorize and practices popular shortcuts in applications. :)
Don’t know how you’d pull that off without triggering the shortcuts, but that would be awesome too.
Simple but could use more...
Most of the typing sessions are very short, longer sessions would be nice (not a book or anything just a bit longer). Some other interesting categories or online competitive races would be awesome too.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
