WPM - Measure Typing Speed and Accuracy
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
WPM (Words Per Minute) is a program created by Eatoni for scientifically computing your typing speed on the iPhone's or iPad's built-in keyboard. If you think you're fast, here's your chance to prove it.
Each test invites you to type three short phrases, selected at random from a set of 500 phrases compiled by MacKenzie and Soukoreff 2003 specifically for testing text entry systems. You may test yourself as often as you like.
Your personal best scores can be posted to Twitter. This allows you to easily track your own progress and to compete with others, as the top scores get into the WPM Leaderboard.
What's New in Version 2.3
Improved best score table.
Misspelled words, lousy interface
If you're going to make a typing app for an English-speaking audience, you should get an English speaker to ensure the sentences are actually grammatical and the words are spelled correctly.
The UI itself is clunky, and the "typing test" stops after every line, so you won't get an accurate speed when using this app.
Not even worth a free download.
I was all setup with my bluetooth keyboard and my iPad set horizontally (y'know, like a desktop computer setup) . . . then I discovered this app is forced vertical only. Until they add a rotation option, this app serves no purpose; I want my all-fingers-on-the-keyboard WPM not my thumbs-only WPM.
Easily the best iPhone app of its kind.
