Typist is a typing tutor, which helps you in learning touch typing.
If you have never taken any lessons in typing before, please be patient.
Typing is not difficult but it does take a lot of practice. Avoid the tendency to look down at your fingers while typing. This is a very bad habit and is hard to break later.
If you have always used the hunt-and-peck method, you will have an even harder time keeping yourself from looking. Don't be surprised if you find touch typing slower than your old ways. It may be slower when you first start. But, touch typing is far faster once you get the hang of it.

Best typing app so far.
I used other typing instructor apps in the beginning; however, they were all not very helpful. My typing was very clumsy. With “Typist,” everthing changed. The app's layout is simple and intuitive. My learning process was rapid. I could mentally remember where the keys were without having to look at the keyboard. My typing speed increased naturally. I would certainily recommend this app to anyone who wants to learn typing with the ten fingers. Try this app, you will not regret. In no time, you will be on your way to amazing your friends about how well and fast you can type. Thanks to the developer. By the way, I typed this review in two minutes. That is an average of 55 words per minute. Not bad for a beginner.
It’s really great app. It’s takes time and patient but eventually once you get the hang of it. Its fun to practice.
You know what they say practive makes perfect, not the whole other way around.
