What is one of the biggest challenges of every fresh iPhone/IPodTouch user? Right - to type on a virtual keyboard at an acceptable pace. TypeFast aims to solve this problem. It teaches your fingers how to type quickly.

==========How it works======
Retype any text - your own or preinstalled exercises - and concentrate on the most important keys of the standard - "Qwerty" - keyboard. Use both your thumbs or any other finger and see how fast and accurate your typing is.
With the next needed key highlighted you don't need to worry about searching letters. As a consequence you easily increase your learning curve.
The exercises include arrangements of the 200 most common words, literary and historic works, and even the last wrong typed letters. That makes it possible to learn from your faults. A little practise day you suddenly notice that your fingers autonomously wander to the right places. That leaves more time for you and the joyful side of life

✔ display of wpm-rate and accuracy
✔ highlighted keys (blue border) increase learning curve
✔ support for landscape and portrait orientation
✔ costumizable exercise: type in your own text
✔ correct your last wrong typed letters
✔ preinstalled exercises ranging from the alphabet to literacy, to history, etc.

This app definitely improves your speed and accuracy. It does not allow you to use the autocorrect feature in the iphone. The only other issue is there is a dash character which is longer than the usual dash which I can't seem to find on the keyboard?


I bought this app to drill myself to not "Hunt and Peck" on my iPad. I don't want to be a "one finger warrior". It helped a little but I would rather use the iPad keyboard instead of what I believe is an iTouch keyboard. I will use it but not as much as I had hoped.


I learned to type in the army and really did not learn very well. Being able to see the letters helps!
