Very Enjoyable Learning to Type
This typing program is really enjoyable. It is difficult to learn to type when you're in your 30's, but this has been a nice surprise. The program has cool themes where you "travel" to countries or in time. Each lesson is in a new place and when you pass the tests you have a real feeling of accomplishment. The typing games come up periodically in the lessons and are quite fun and challenging. They are paced with your words per minute and the letters you know on the keyboard so I didn't get lost and lose in the first minute or two of the game. Ziggy is my favorite game - I'm hooked! It's like solataire but better because I'm learning to type faster and make fewer mistakes and having fun at the same time ... up to almost 40 words per minute. Yeah!
Just the right solution!
As an adult who took typing class in high school I was searching for an easy way to heighten and tighten my typing skills. Tried some "free" options online, but there was no way to track my progress or go back to what I was working on. Checked out the App Store several times, but there was little to no options available. Was pretty thrilled to finally see this program hit the virtual shelf and it has been exactly what I was looking for! It immediately tests your current skill level and then provides numerous excercises to help improve. Easy to use and haved already recommended it to my staff at work and plan on sharing it with my kids as well. Although, I see the same company has a kid specific version as well!
My son loves it and is really learning to type!
This program is a lot of fun. My son actually looks forward to practicing each day. The lessons progress at a good pace, with lessons, tests, dictation, and games with multiple skill levels and options – so even for my son (age 11) this software never gets old. His goal word per minute is 30, and he’s making steady progress to get there shortly, which will be just about 4 weeks. The games have him hooked plus the theme is fun and makes practicing enjoyable. I give it a full 5 stars.
