In our digital era of close-knit human-computer interactions, it’s a given that you know how to type fast. It’s not important for work – your friends expect fast text message replies as well! If you take two minutes to type up a simple message, you’ll be dubbed a Slowpoke.

What sets Keybr apart from from other fast typing apps are stats and smart algorithms that track your practice. According to the results that you achieve as you go through the app, you will be directed to more difficult challenges. This way, Keybr goes around unnecessary repetitions and takes you straight to more difficult exercises.

This app also measures how fast you type specific words and letter combinations. When a letter combination proves to be problematic for your typing, it will appear in your exercises more often, until you get a complete grip over it.

Unlike most fast typing programs that have pre-set exercises, Keybr adapts to your needs and skill levels as you go.

3.   Rata Type

Rata Type is another high-quality app for fast typing and learning how to type with 10 fingers. The introduction to this program starts with basic preparation exercises, which include:

  • how you should sit at your keyboard
  • how should your arms be placed
  • where should your fingers be placed
  • aspects of typing you should focus on

Next, you will be directed to a test of your skills, which will determine your knowledge levels. This data will be used to determine the difficulty of exercises that the app will present to you. This helps to avoid basics for people who are ready for tasks that are more challenging.

4.   Stamina Typing Tutor

Stamina Typing Tutor is a fast typing app that’s equally used for absolute beginners, as well as advanced keyboard users. Next to the standard position of fingers on the keyboard, this app will enable you to learn how to type faster using an alternative finger placement scheme that reduces pressure and fatigue of the hands.

Instead of using the usual finger placement scheme ASDF, you can learn how to type fast by placing your fingers on SDFV and NJKL, which is a much more natural position for your hands and will increase its fatigue tolerance.

You can also include various images, animations and sounds in the installation of this app, which makes learning more fun and relaxed.

5.   Typingweb

Just like its name says, Typingweb is a web-based app, so you won’t have to install any software on your computer. As you go through exercises on the app, Typingweb will record your results and allow you to see which aspects of typing present a difficulty to you and where you need further instructions.

Based on these results, the app will offer you a list of lessons that you need to tackle to improve your typing speed.

6.   Space Bar Invaders

  1. The self education industry is a $355 Million per day industry and is expected to TRIPLE in the next 5 years! And with the right strategy this could be your opportunity to:

    Get in early before it is oversaturated.
    Help others go faster while you get paid
    Fix a broken system
    Make an impact on the world
    Get paid for a skill, hobby, passion or expertise you already have (or get paid from someone else’s)

    And Tony Robbins, Russell Brunson and Dean Graziosi are finally going to show YOU how to take advantage of it…

    (Now if you don’t already know who these 3 guys are then you’ll want to listen up!! They’ve impacted millions of lives and have generated billions of dollars)

    Look, if you’ve ever thought about (or even if you never thought about) getting paid for something you know (like a passion or a skill)… or even getting paid from what others know, then you have to attend.

    This is one of the fastest growing industries online and in all areas of the world.

    And for the first time ever they’re doing a webclass training on how to extract your wisdom (or somebody else’s) and get other people to pay you for it!

    You can save your spot here (and when you do register, you’re immediately going to get a brand new, never before seen training from Tony and Dean. No one else will ever get a chance to see this rare training except for us).


    After hearing what they’re teaching, I truly believe this is the #1 way to make a massive income, make a massive impact on the world and leave a legacy!

    And here’s just a fraction of what you’ll learn this week:

    The mostly hidden $129 Billion dollar market and how you can make a massive impact and leave a legacy by profiting from it.

    The KBB Triangle: The 3 ways to profit (whether you’re an expert with a thriving business, just getting started, or even if you’re at complete rock bottom)

    The framework to profit from what you (or someone else) already knows – or by creating community and bringing people together.

    Plus you’ll even be able to ask them questions when they do Q&A at the end of the training. (Chat is limited so show up early).

    There’s no other time where you’re going to have this opportunity. So BE THERE! Because if you’re not going to make a shift in your life now, then when? And if not with these guys, then let me ask with who?

    This is your rare chance to learn from 3 people who started from nothing and went on to generate billions of dollars and build massive companies.

    Spots are filling up faster than they ever have, so you need to hurry and go here to save your spot


    Register now and I’ll see you there this week – Plus they did a few brand new “pre-event” trainings that only those who register get access to.
